5 Easy Ways to Help a Blogger

5 Easy Ways to Help a Blogger

A lot of the time you don’t realize just how much you, yes YOU, can help a blogger.  All of them are pretty dang simple too when it comes down to it.  Most just don’t realize how you can help. I had written a note on my personal facebook a few months back, but now I am bringing you 5 Easy Ways to Help a Blogger.

I have read fellow bloggers post similar things over the course of the last few months, but I thought it would be fun to do my own.  Since the beginning of the year has brought lots of changes around Angie’s Angle, I had a lot of my personal friends asking me how they could help me grow my blog.  The answer was simple really, interact and follow me.  Those two things in a nutshell on how easy it is to help a blogger.

Even some bloggers don’t realize how they can help other bloggers.

5 Easy Ways to Help a Blogger

  1. Comment on their blogs.  We don’t just sit here to write to ourselves, we want interaction.  We NEED interaction.  Not only do we want to get to know you, but we want you to get to know us as well.  I have met some wonderful bloggers that have become my friend as well, we want to be your friend as well as your informer.Ask question.  Answer questions.  Praise. Agree.  Disagree. Add your two cents on our post, trust me, we want to know what you think as well.
  2. Follow our blog.  It doesn’t matter how you follow.  Whether it be bloglovin’, Networked Blogs or by email. Just subscribe in some form and follow our blog. Follow how you feel comfortable following, just follow.
  3. Follow us on our social media accounts.  A lot of the time we get accepted for something based on how many likes us on certain social media accounts.Following us on any you have would be a wonderful thing and we would be forever grateful for you.Not only follow us on those accounts but interact as well there as you can. Like facebook sometimes it hides thing we post because you haven’t interacted with it.  Interact and you can see more of what we say, your interacting helps us be seen by others and helps us grow.  Not to mention we love interacting back with you as well.
  4. Sharing.  Share my posts, please.  It helps others see it.  It helps get our word out.  It just plainly helps.  Most of us have very easy share links under each post to make it easy for you to share on whatever platform you choose.
  5. Spend a bit of time on our blog.  Take your time and visit other areas that might interest you.  The longer you spend on our site, the better.  Remember to come back, visiting our blog helps bump the numbers up so we may offer you more in the future.

    so many great tips. This will help people know how to help us grow our followers and get us more opportunities

  • Amanda Dunville

    Love your tips for us bloggers.

    Angie – This is the BEST post I’ve read as it relates to blogging EVER, especially since the most important people are our readers. I wish our readers knew how important they are to us. We share our voices in hopes that we can identify with or help someone with a similar mindset or lifestyle. Likely, we (bloggers) all start because we are opinionated and influential! Most bloggers feel like sharing is caring! If we touch just one person, it’s a WIN!

    I don’t think that your average internet user understands how blogs really work. You could compare it to someone who loves a restaurant and visits weekly, but never offers any comments,praise or suggests areas of opportunity. On another note, it’s kind of like a Facebook status update. When you share a status update, you want likes or comments. The same goes for blogs.

    I hope your message goes viral! Other peoples blogs have provided me with a whirlwind of information from REAL PEOPLE, most of whom I’ve connected with personally on Facebook as I am a blogger and a blog reader.

    When readers connect with a certain blogger, it is likely 100 times more powerful a connection than anyone on their Facebook friends list or even their phone contact list, in my opinion. I have a few blogs that I’ve really connected with that I’m also connected with the blogger behind the blog on Facebook, personally. I’ve got a blogger Mom, a few blogger sisters, some blogger cousins, etc. Even if I weren’t a blogger, I would still identify with them in this way.

    I hope that readers can do the same regardless of which blog(s) they follow or frequent.

    • Thanks so much for your long thought out comment Melissa – I love it and its really so true.

  • SueKearney

    Thanks for your wisdom!

  • These are some awesome tips. #ThrowbackThursdayLP

  • I love this. I have only been blogging for about year and have always tried to support other bloggers, sometimes they return the visit, comment, or like and sometimes they do not. I would like to share something like this on my page so that the readers do know how appreciative we are. #ThrowbackThursdayLP

    • Thank you so much Erica!! – – I try so hard to visit and comment, but sometimes I get overwhelmed and just never “catch up”

  • Isn’t it great to know that helping a blogger is easy and costs nothing but some support and time? Thanks for sharing these.
    I hope that my time commenting makes other bloggers smile πŸ™‚

    Great tips- if a blogger follows me or responds to one of my posts I always make the effort to reach out to them! Lauren from SAHM I am.

    • I do the same, or try my hardest – somedays I get so overwhelmed that I don’t get a chance.

  • Such great, and as you say, easy tips. Thanks for sharing.

    Stopped by via the Weekend ReTreat!

    all very good suggestions. Following, Commenting, Sharing, and Spending time reading all take time. and all bloggers want their readers to do these things. However, so many times visitors will just pop in and pop out without a trace.
    i try and do all these things on many of the blogs i visit, and really appreciate it when my visitors do the same in return.

    thanks for the reminder to all bloggers, readers and visitors!

    • I know about the popping in and vanishing just as quickly – it makes you wonder how they found you and why they don’t stay spell.

  • Dawn Kropp

    These are great tips to help out bloggers!! I couldn’t have said it any better…Great angle Angie πŸ™‚ Thank you for joining in our #PinUP Pin Party. Hope to see you again, there’s a new one every Friday!

  • Hi there! I really like this post and thankful for seeing something about this out here! I have been blogging for well over 10 years, but mainly for private and small audience purposes. But lately, I’d like to grow my reader base because I would love more interaction! I love where you stated “we need interaction”!! It’s so true. When did you start blogging? Do you also work outside the home? Either way, how do you fit it all in?

    • Thanks Melanie! – – I do blogging full-time with no outside job. But I also do other social media things and survey, etc. While I don’t earn enough to get me by yet, I feel I am growing. I have been blogging in some form as long as I can remember, but this main blog has been going since 2011

  • sounds like this may a great time to get started
