From the first blog post I published, I have always appreciated the support from other bloggers. I have often praised the blogging community for it’s overall friendliness, approachability and willingness to help, so if you are looking to return the favour, here are five very easy and quick ways to support other bloggers.
Nearly everyone has a Twitter account these days and if you want to be a serious blogger, you should have one too. Considering Twitter is a haven for blogger interaction, its one of the best places to show support to your favourite bloggers without really needing to do much. It’s quite simple, if you find a link to a post you read and really enjoy, click that re-tweet button and share it with your friends. Spreading the love will ultimately give that blogger some more page views and they will certainly appreciate the helpful boost.
If you are going to do the above, you might as well comment too right? It takes less than a minute to tell someone that you enjoyed their post or what caught your eye on their blog page. Blogger’s appreciate the effort and feedback is very useful (the majority of times anyway). A few kind words can really make someone’s day, so go ahead and make a comment on their blog, Twitter, Instagram or any other form of social media.
Click their links
Let’s say you have been thinking about buying that new lipstick for awhile and you just read an amazing review about it on someone’s blog. Now you are fully committed to buying it and ready to go grab your card. Well don’t open up a new tab and search for Superdrug, instead click the link that was mentioned in the post. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, there’s no catch, it’s simply to give that blogger a little commission from your sale. After all they did convince you that it’s worth buying in the end.
Why you are at it, see them ads to the side or at the bottom of the page. Bloggers will also make a little money from them too so give them a quick tap. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but bloggers will be very thankful.
Simple steps right? You would be surprised how much they can make a difference.
