Did you know that it’s almost my 1-year-blogiversary? My first post went up at the end of March in 2014. Over the past year I’ve learned A LOT about blogging, and of course, I still have A LOT more left to learn! But so far, the best blogging tip I’ve gotten about how to grow your blog is: Network with other bloggers!
The Best Blogging Tip: How to Grow Your Blog
That’s right, it’s as simple as that. Networking with other bloggers has helped me grow my blog from only a couple hundred page views per month to thousands of page views per month. It’s through networking that I’ve learned about social media, proper image formatting, and so much more. The blogging community is great about helping others and sharing blogging tips. Not only that, it brought opportunities to have my posts shared, which resulted in more readers!
Here are a just a few ideas on how to network with other bloggers:
- Join link ups or link parties (like the Make a Difference Monday Link Up!)
- Join blogging networks or associations (like the Kid Blogger Network or the International Bloggers’ Association)
- Comment often on your favorite blogs and blogs within your niche
- Join Facebook groups related to blogging
- Attend a blogging conference
If you are looking to attend a blogging conference, then check out the International Bloggers’ Association’s (IBA) first ever Network-a-thon! It’s basically the perfect opportunity to grow your blog. The Network-a-thon is a week-long event, running October 12 through October 17, that will be hosted entirely online. And at only $10 per ticket, it is one of the most affordable blogging conferences available. It will be worth that small investment to make a difference for your blog.
When you sign up, you’ll have exclusive access to Google Hangouts, video content, and private conversations with some amazing professional bloggers. You’ll be given an itinerary of events which you can attend live, but you’ll also be given access to all the content to watch and learn at your own pace. That makes it incredibly convenient for even the busiest person to attend!
If you aren’t convinced yet, I have an exclusive coupon code for my readers. When you purchase your ticket, use the code SARAH (all caps) to get 50% off the price of your ticket. That means you’ll be able to attend the week-long Network-a-thon for only $5! A “famous” quote from my sister would be, “You can’t afford NOT to!” 🙂
