Today's Topic: Followers
Seriously, I want to make this work.
Following is a lot like dating...
long distance that is.
It's important to know what your followers are thinking.
So here is my secret:
Brownies, sparkles and candy may be in my bucket of awesome, but you'll need to make your own buckets (I don't like to share).
Okay let's get serious...
I've been blogging since January of this year and this is the advice I've gained on how to gain the proper following:
1. Blog Hop - When following your favorite blogs, fish out for new bloggers. When I take time to comment, I often find someone commenting I don't know so I decide to jump over and FOLLOW (only if I like what I see!)
2. Blog Theme - Interactive & fun is key! If you want people to follow you, you want to stay AWESOME. Make sure you stay fun, creative, and always have brownies available!
3. Keep Colors Simple - The harder your blog is to read, the shorter the visit for a newcomer, they want to be whisked away to some place super fun and EASY to read. I will say a splash of color never hurt anyone!!!
4. No Garbage - Make sure your blog is easy to open, don't overload your blog with things that weigh it down. Music players, awards and a few links are fine, just try not to go overboard.
Most of all, stay awesome! Be sweet and respectful when newcomers stop by and make sure to show them love!!!
So there you are... my serious and not.so.serious version to find followers!
