I just joined mom bloggers club and I am glad I found this discussion. I also have only been blogging for a few months and starting to get better about getting on it everyday and it is getting easier. I sometimes dought myself on what I just wrote but I look the next day and then there are 2 new page views. I have also been told that followers are a challenge to get but watching the page views increase is great. I have a gift basket website, http://beautifulbasketboutique.com and I have no followers but I feel good about the number of pageviews I have received since the start. I am glad that someone is reading them!!! Please check out http://beautifulbasketboutique.blogspot.com/ would appreciate the feedback.
Hello fellow Mom Bloggers Club Members!!
This is a very supportive and encouraging group and I hope you'll be right at home. I would love to connect with you and share ideas and stories. I actually have 2 blogs that I run simultaneously. My green blog is:
My funny, snarky, silly blog is called Mom Rants and Comfy Pants
Subscribe and follow one or both. Either way, comment and introduce yourself and I'll be happy to follow you back!!
I like your Mom's Rants and Comfort Pants blog. It was very interesting and clever. I especially love the title. Very cute. I also followed and I liked both of your Facebook pages. Please feel free to visit my “See Why I Buy” blogs and Youtube channel and please subscribe.
I had a peek and I enjoyed my visit. I love the inspirational stores you shared from the My 600 Pound Life show. I enjoyed the recipes and the crafts post as well. Personally I feel while building the initial burst of traffic isn't always easy it does get better with time. Your on the right track by joining a bloggers network which is sure to help build your audience.I find you'll also get many visits from posting comments on others similar blogs that are interesting and genuine to the content posted. I do have to mention thought I personally find blogspot a PITA simply because I don't use anything of those networks and therefore it will not let me post comments.
I Just followed your blog :) Link for mine is : http://mommy24zz.blogspot.ca/
I am in the same boat, I began in March, so far I have spent most of my time designing my blog (totally new to all of this + 2 lo's at home) barely having much time to write! LOL. but I am trying to get out there and network. I will gladly follow as many as I can on this post and see if it helps!

I'm building MomsLtd exclussively for Moms By Moms. Give your Blogs to my list Please.
I agree...so hard!! I'll follow YOU!!
Also I just took my daughters senior portraits...we are super happy how they turned out
I have the same issues, people are on my page daily but there are no follows .... any advice would be great !
There have been quite a few excellent replies already in this thread! The best advice I could give you to help give your blog and social network follower count up, is to begin with your family and friends. Invite them to follow. Facebook is like magic, when you publish an update, any of your friends or family who like/comment on your post - their friends (followers) will take notice so it's like a ripple effect. Whenever you publish an update on Facebook, make sure to include a link to your blog and every once in a while (not too often to avoid looking spammy) invite them to follow your blog & other social networking profiles.
Hope that adds to the already good advice posted here!! :)
