How to support other bloggers

Hey readers,
How are you doing? So in my last blog post we talked about where to find your type of blogs and in the previous one we talked about how blogging is awesome and that if you are interested you should definitely go for it. (I'll put in the links below) Now I want to talk about how you can support other bloggers.





So you made a blog, you found other bloggers that you find interesting. Now what?
Don't you want to support them like they support you?

Here are some ways you can support them :D

1- Subscribe/ Follow
If you like a blog, subscribe to it. Be part of their mailing list. This is an indirect way of saying I love your blog and I want to see more of your awesome posts. I feel like it is pretty hard to get followers on a blog because no matter how much your blog is awesome, people might hesitate to click that button. It is much easier for people to follow you on twitter instead and just click your links whenever they want to check out your blog. But if you really like a blog, you should follow it so you will be notified when they post. :)

2- Comment
Bloggers love comments. It takes time to create a new post and if you take time to comment on people's blogs, they will love it and be even more motivated to create new posts. Let them know how you enjoy their posts, how you want to see more of those, how you can relate to them. Comments are one of the best ways to support bloggers.

3- Follow them on social media
There are numerous ways a blogger can promote their new blog post. I feel like bloggers mainly promote their posts on twitter and instagram, pinterest and on bloglovin' so if you see these links on their blog just go ahead and click them and follow them. Don't hesitate to message them and let them know you enjoy reading their blog posts. A simple act of kindness can change everything!

4- Buy their "stuff"
If a blogger is selling some of their products like maybe on Etsy or something, you can support them by buying their products.

5- Share away
One thing that you can do is share a blog post. If you really enjoying reading a post or find it inspiring, just go ahead and share it with anyone you know. You can share it on facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest. Retweet it on twitter, repost on instagram, pin it on pinterest.

If you do some or all of this, I promise you, you are not only making other bloggers happy, but yourself too because what you give is what you get. If you show lots of love and support towards other bloggers, they will return the love too.

Also, this will help you build a stronger bond with other bloggers and perhaps you might end up with awesome blogging buddies :D

Blogging isn't just about yourself, it is about a whole community. - H.P.

  2. Absolutely!! I always love when someone tells me that a post I wrote resonated with them, but if they don’t reach out in some way, how do I know anyone is reading?! And in a space that is so saturated, it’s nice to know we are forming meaningful connections and meeting new friends—that’s what it’s all about <3 thanks for sharing this, and hope you have a great week ahead!

  13. Great ideas and good impulse. Two additional things I have done to promote my blogger-friends is (1) profile them with interviews and praise, and (2) give annual awards in December -- with real trophies! Everything we do to help our friends is good.
