Greetings! I want to share this important step in Blogging. And this step is networking. I used to think that blogging was simply just writing and putting it out there, but it’s not that easy. Yes, you can get readers from SEO ( search engine optimization), but that will only take you so far. It’s communicating with people on social media that can help give you that extra boost.
Releasing or advertising your blog post on multiple social media sites can give you much more exposure. So, it’s worth trying to accumulate a healthy following on all your social media sites. The more followers you have, the more exposure you have.
And of course, we can’t forget the readers you can get from fellow bloggers here on WordPress. We are all writers, but I’m assuming some of us are readers too! I know I am! I am always looking for interesting reads. But, I can’t discover your blog if your hidden away amongst the millions of other blogs! I have a few ways that will be helpful in getting you found.
- Join in on WordPress challenges and activities. You can join other bloggers doing activities created by the WordPress site. WordPress give you links that you can attach to your post when doing activities so that other bloggers doing that activity can find you! I myself like doing the daily prompt. Here is a link to read more about it!😀
- Bloggers here on WordPress know the struggle of finding readers, so we often help each other out with meet and greets! A blogger will host a meet and greet using thire blog and allow you to introduce yourself and leave your link in the comment section. Depending on how popular the host of the blog is, you could see hundreds of people leaving thire link on the hosts blog post. Bloggers find out about the event by other bloggers they follow reblogging the information. I don’t see many meet and greets anymore, and it’s unfortunate. I really suggest considering hosting one yourself. It can give you and everyone more exposure!
- Simply ask your readers to reblog or share on social media. If you feel that you give out quality information, and you would like the message spread, then making that request is useful. There are a lot of readers who enjoy your work who wouldn’t mind sharing your post. Some readers simply just never gave sharing a thought, but would be more than happy if asked!😀
- And lastly, don’t be afraid to team up with other bloggers. Ask bloggers if they would like to be a guest writer on your blog. Or you can even ask other bloggers if you can be a guest writer on thire blog. You can collaborate an interesting topic together. This will bring your readers to thire blog, and bring thire readers to your blog. This will also give your readers something new and interesting to read!
Okay, enough information for now! I hope you found this information useful. If you did, don’t be afraid to share it with friends! It’s Free and useful! See you in the next class! 😄
Success is yours!😄
