First of all, I think MBC is a great resource for blogging questions. It's also wonderful to brainstorm for future blog posts. My friend and I are launching our blog April 1 and are looking to spread the word. Our site is www.thepinningmama.com We have put our heart into this so far and want to continue. We hope people enjoy it as much as we do. In trying to spread the word we are also looking to have followers. I've seen the two follow me groups, but it seems like you would get lost in the sea of comments. Plus, theres a lot of duplicate posts from people. Any suggestions?
If you're reading this, here are our linkys. I will follow you too!
Follow me clubs are great to get traffic to build your PR if you want to bring in income from companies and I do encourage you to also build a friendship with those following. I am actually the first member to think this up on here many years ago and I did find many friends from my new followers.
A new trend now are tribes and I actually starting one now. These are a small group of bloggers that are faithful to each other by following and visiting at least a couple of times a week. We also add each other to our blog rolls.
If you are interested in joining, please let me know-it's fun!
thats an interesting idea Tess! I only started blogging last month and would love to join in on the tribe! check out my blog http://funtasticmommy.blogspot.com/
let me know your feedback!
Hey Ashley and Kimber...
Just starting following all of your channels. I'm subscribed to your blog via email so that I'll be sure to get all of your posts. I write about my journey of becoming clean and green with my family at http://greenmomsandkids.wordpress.com. I am also on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/WindyCityLean0 and Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/greenmomsnkids). I am also on Facebook (@Green Moms and Kids).
Best of luck with the launch. Looking forward to reading it.
Love the colors of your site:) I just wrote a post about Mommy Blog Directories that may be helpful in finding other communities and directories to get your site out there. Here is the link: Busy Momi Bee Blog Tips! Almost forgot, you have a new follower:)
I'm also interested in this. I just got back into blogging and saving to have a custom blog template made, cause what I have now isn't pretty. But I feel it is just me that reads it!
I always feel my comments are lost in the sea. Best of luck and love the blog!
