I’ve only recently learned of some pretty cool blogging tools, and as always I couldn’t wait to post about them here on my blog. There are several groups on Facebook that offer so many neato motivational tools.
One of the simplest ways in my opinion to build your readership is to, read other blogs and show lots of love! If you run a Vlog, mention other bloggers on your blog. If you run a blog like this one, give shout outs to other blogs, link to them and comment on their stuff.
That’s a great start, then, choose say 10 blogs that are on the same topic as your blog. Bookmark them in a folder, and then subscribe to them. Visit their blogs, leave comments, like their Facebook pages, and just be active, on those pages. This is a great way to get their attention and a great way to become a solid part of the Facebook Community.
There are also the Facebook Groups I mentioned above that offer some really neato resources!
A link party is where a group of bloggers all decide to blog, Vlog on the same topic and then link to each others articles, that way when someone comes a long and reads one article, they’re treated to a group of articles on the same topic. It’s also not a bad way to make sure your articles have a ton of relevant links pointing to them!
Share for Share – Comment for Comment – Like for Like
These exchanges are done in many fashions. Some groups let someone just pop in and post their page, YouTube Site, Facebook page, blog post, etc, and ask for likes/shares/comments, the person then promises to return in kind. In other groups, thins are a bit more organized, and you either reciprocate with the person above and below you, or everyone in a specific group, etc.
There are just a ton of these groups available on Facebook and they’re fantastic for getting comments on your pages, getting faithful followers and building blogging relationships.
I just, today, started one of these groups, I started it because I want to be a part of a SUPER active group, with daily activities. I wasn’t able to find one, so I’m creating one. You can find it HERE.
