Blogging Buddies – building a community.

Welcome to the latest post in this series that is designed to help and encourage people who are new to blogging. This week we are looking at how to build a community around your blog or how to ‘connect’ and join in with those already in existence.

When I asked the question:

Why do you blog?

a lot of people mentioned the amazing community that they have found to connect with through their blog, people that they would never have been able to connect with without the internet. When I first started out I remember looking at blogs and seeing how many people left comments and followed them, and thinking how on earth does that happen?

I am sure that this is a question asked by many people starting out with blogging still ask themselves. You have taken the plunge, started your blog and are managing to find some time to put up posts but how do you build a following and get people to find you?

I have written a post on this in the past so won’t go into a lot of detail here. To summarise, I find that you have to invest a fair amount of time in it but it will be worth it. It is also about giving it time.

What have you found that works for you?  As always your are welcome to leave a link back to your blog should you feel like writing a post about your experiences. 🙂

    It seems like the likes are easy to get, and followers, but comments are what I like, I like leaving them after I read a post, and getting them 🙂 I’d say search out a blog you LOVE and leave that person commits, and they’ll talk to you, and visit your blog, do that, one person at a time.

      Very good advice. I agree with you. Blogging is about commenting and connecting with people and that has to happen slowly and on a one to one basis. Thank you for reading and commenting on this blog.
