A Blogger Can Always Use More Readers

Sharing Your Perspectives

  • Comment on a post at least once a week during the coming year.
  • Pick a topic, set a date, and write a guest post.

Helping Spread the Message

  • Set up a Twitterfeed link to automatically tweet a link to the latest post published on the blog.
  • If you don’t want use Twitterfeed, retweet links to the blogger’s posts on Twitter. You can also share links to blog articles through other social sharing avenues (through all those little icons usually at the top or bottom of a post).

Connecting IRL

The Ultimate Support

  • Buy/use the services or products offered on their website.
  • Recommend their products or services to others who might benefit from them. – Mike Brown

    I’m happy to see that I’ve been doing something right : using Twitterfeed Ti share my favorite (145) blogs. I am a voracious reader and technology ha made it possible for me to learn from interesting people via their blogs. MUST share with the world ! Merry Christmas!

      Merry Christmas to you as well! And you’re definitely giving all your favorite bloggers a wonderful gift by sharing their posts.

      That’s one of my big learnings this year. I went into 2010 wondering about the value of content I was creating on the blog given the slow (-er than I expected) pace of adding readers to Brainzooming. 2010 opened opportunities to write new content for several blogs (Stepcase Lifehack, TalentCulture) and have more content re-published on other sites (including Social Media Today). Appearing on blogs that were further along in developing an audience showed the power of getting content in front of a large audience.

      So yes Ana Lucia, you’re providing a wonderful gift!

      Take care,
