8 Ways to Support Other Bloggers
& Blogger Roundup
I believe in order to be successful in life and business it is important to make positive connections and network with others who understand the challenges and triumphs of that business. In this post, I will highlight some ways in which bloggers can support each other in their blogging journey. We are lifelong learners that can gain fresh perspectives and insight into blogging from others in our field.
Since your blog is your reputation, think about who you are partnering with, and make sure everything is spelled out, so there are no misunderstandings.
It helps to:
1) read the bloggers’ blogs you intend to work with for 3 months or more,
2) be in contact with the bloggers you are going to feature (subscribe to the blogs’ newsletters, FB groups, email, comment on their posts…)
3) agree on what will be posted in any collaboration project, and 3) decide which legal picture/photos/graphics to use for the post. Violating copyright laws for text or images can lead to getting sued.
Have fun, and get connected using these methods!
Roundups like this featuring other blogs relating to your own blog niche(s). I will be doing that in this post. Since I have 3 niches, I will list at least 1 blog for each niche
(Teacher– for teachers & parents PreK-5th Grade,
Reader– Book reviews/reading challenges (if you are a reader, challenges are a great way to interact with other readers, and
Life– Lifestyle including blogging).
2. Create a post by interviewing another blogger. See my interview with Virtual Assistant Paula Hickey HERE.
3. Guest Posts– You can get a lead on guest posts through Facebook groups you are in, look to make connections with other bloggers in your niche, and ask to write a guest post with bloggers you know. Be sure to be clear about expectations on both sides.
4. Roundups that include other blogger input. For example, a list of 10 bloggers that explain how they made their blogs successful.
5. Write positive and thoughtful comments on other blogs in your niche(s) that you genuinely find to be helpful and quality resources.
6. Network with other bloggers by participating in Pinterest group boards, join Facebook groups that support other bloggers, participate in Linky parties, and respond to comments and outreach from your audience.
7. Subscribe to newsletters from bloggers that interest you.
8.Many bloggers provide valuable content, and they use affiliate links as a means to support their blogs or make money.
If you genuinely like a blogger, you can use her/his affiliate links placed within their posts to purchase items you would buy anyway, products that can help with your blogging journey.
(Make sure these bloggers have disclosures about their affiliate links or sponsored posts clearly stated before the links/images/banners.) Please do not click on links in blogs that seem spammy or untrustworthy.
I am delighted to highlight some of my fellow bloggers!
