When I first started my blog last year, I was pretty sure that the only people who read my blog were my husband and my family. Mainly because I genuinely had no idea what the hell I was doing until I found the blogging community that is alive and well! Now I’m not saying that you can support absolutely everyone on your feed, that would be practically impossible, especially with the blogger community absolutely booming right now, however I think it is really important to support bloggers when they’re doing an absolutely fantastic job. At the moment I have really been struggling to comment on everyone’s blog, I actually haven’t had a lot of time to comment on blogs, I can’t remember the last time I had a wonderful commenting spree. So how can you show your appreciation with such little time on our hands?
Retweets – Twitter is an amazing tool for us bloggers, it comes in so handy with absolutely everything! We can chat, mingle, meet new bloggers, support each other, share links and all that jazz. It’s an incredible tool that we have right at our finger tips, we can just scroll through on our lunch break or when we have a moment, look at what has been posted lately, and quickly retweet if we fancy it.
Blog posts – There are so many people who do the blog posts on life lately, and it is so easy to just add in some blogs that you have been loving lately. I am so looking forward to doing a life update soon and adding in some bloggers that I have been absolutely adoring.
Recommendations – There are always loads of places where you can recommend bloggers, whether it is blog chats which happen every night or it is on Google+ or maybe it is on Facebook groups, either way there are a variety of ways in which you can recommend bloggers.
Speak to bloggers – communication is such an important part of blogging I mean I don’t know what would happen if we never communicated! You can easily comment while you’re scrolling through Twitter, just send a little tweet saying what an absolutely amazing post, or great job I totally agree. It is the little things that honestly mean the absolute world to people!
Commenting – You can set like 30 minutes aside a week where you can just read blog posts, appreciate other people’s work, leave a little comment and just enjoy being part of someone’s incredible work!
Now these are just little things that you can do, and when they’re done on a regular basis it is one of the greatest feelings in the entire world. I love supporting others, I just wish I could do it a little more often than I do!
