The best blogging for me is about community. The people you meet yadda yadda…
It’s always that little bit cold when you are blogging away and getting very little feedback isn’t it? We’ve all been there! So when you meet generous sharers you would be bonkers not to make them your bestest blogging friend.
A Momma’s View is one of those people and here is why what she does is great:
Most weeks she does a round-up of sites that have entertained her. This is fab because you get to meet a bunch of new people and if you’re a shy blogger when you reach out to some of them your opening gambit can be ‘A Momma’s View sent me…’ to break the ice.
It’s also clever because when she links to other people in her round up lists they see it in their blogging accounts (as a pingback) and go to check out who is linking to them and why.
Apart from that it’s just a nice blogger-y community-y type thing to do.
For her lists she picks gems. All killer, no filler! So you get to discover great new blogs.
All of these things I have said in multiple tutorials before and in my Blogging Caucus Group which you can access below. Also highlighting AMV in this post gave me a nice way to say thanks for her listing yours truly and return the props…again all about community, give and take and building our little empires together!
Apart from that I get to go over to her blog and catch up with some great stuff which is always a reward.
ACTIONS TO TAKE :
Make your own round-up of your favourite blogs, tell your readers why you like them and link to them.
You’ll be sending traffic to those people and they will be bringing traffic to you.
