If you’re a blogger, you’ll know how important it is for you to get your story out there into the world. Whether it is about your faith, or you simply want to share something about the latest beauty regime that you’ve found, you will soon find that there is a whole community of people out there who are interested in the same things as you. And isn’t that great? The beauty of blogging is that you can find other people who are just as passionate about something as you are, despite the fact that they may be living on the other side of the world. Here’s how.
Spend time reading
The best thing that you can do as a blogger looking to make connections is to read other people’s blogs. Not only will this enable you to see what is really out there in your blogging field, but you’ll also be able to comment on other people’s posts, which is the first step towards making these valuable connections. The truth is that no relationships are ever made in the world of blogging without somebody reaching out first, and sometimes, you have to be that person. If you’ve really enjoyed another blogger’s post, then why not tell them? It could lead to a great friendship blossoming!
In the several years that I have been writing on my blog each week, it is wonderful to read the words of my newfound friends and see the community that has formed over the years. Now with my radio show each Friday at 3:30 PM Central time on hGraceAndTruthRadio.World, I’m getting to “meet” you too!
Share things with them
Yes, you want to make sure that your blog has unique content (which is what makes all of your readers come back time and time again) but you could benefit from sharing some of your ideas with your fellow bloggers. Look into workflow and document management software if you’re interested in passing documents to others, and see what brainstorming could do to help you to develop long-lasting relationships with your blogging peers. While you may think that an element of competitiveness is key (and we agree here) there is also something great about building a community based upon shared interests.
Write guest posts for one another
The mistake that you may be making in the world of blogging is that you’re only writing posts for your own blog. Sure, that is your number one priority, but you could form relationships with other bloggers (and boost your readership) by writing guest posts for those who have pages with similar themes to yours. Many blogs accept guest posts, and accepting them onto your page could benefit you, too. Not only does it help you to ensure that there is a wide variety of content on your blog, but it also facilitates discussions on a variety of topics, which will really bring some life onto your page!
So, if you want to make strong relationships with other bloggers, why not try out a few of these things? From ensuring that you keep reading other people’s blogs, to sharing information with other bloggers and writing guest posts (and accepting them, too), there are many ways to form friendships that will last a lifetime. There are so many people out there who care about the same things that you do, why not reach out-and make a new friend?
May God bless the work of your hands as you do a new thing.
Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us;
establish for us the work of our hands—
establish the work of our hands!
With that said, would you like to write a guest post for me? I would welcome sharing your words. Let me make it easy for you-here are the guest post guidelines. Thank you! Remember, I’m headed into “lockdown” to write my dissertation, so I welcome your posts.
