Hello to all! This site is a bit confusing for me and it is set up with my FB which that email I never check!
I am looking for new followers who genuinely want to read my blogs and also participate in any discussions.
I write about anything from parenting issues, relationship ideas and I am currently trying to get started in making my own engraved jewelry. I am so overwhelmed with the ideas and sometimes I feel like I discourage myself.
I do not like to do follow for follow because I dont think it is an honest follow...I do however follow a lot of blogs, especially if it is other moms that speak of anything that has to do with parenting and crafts.
I also blog about beauty, to the best of my knowledge and show off any photo shopping skills I have.
If you follow me on blogger, pls be sure to let me know by messaging me or shooting me an email on the right hand side. Include a link to your page and I will most definitely take a look at it.
I found it. :-) But since you asked for genuine followers I don't think I could live up to that. Seems like a lot of what you blog about I really have no input on(not a girly girl when it comes to make up also still trying to figure out where to find the time to even put it on when I have a 10 month old :-P. Your blog though is amazing I must say. :-). love those desgins on your nails I will check on it from time to time because there are a few things on it I did like.
Also I'm new to this site where do I find where to check yours out at?
I'm looking for followers as well. http://mommie2times.blogspot.com/
I'm also very interested in genuine followers who will continuously be active and respond to my posts, because I certainly will do the same on their blog. A 'one time' response is one thing, but I'm more interested in really forming an active community with others. I will certainly be stopping by some blogs in this thread!
I know exactly what you mean. I want more followers and readers but I don't think it does much good if they follow just to have me follow them. It's kind of a dead end.
I just wanted to say goodluck in your journey. I'll be checking out your blog. Feel free to check out mine. http://mychildcenteredlife.blogspot.com/
I would love to follow you, I comment as often as I can. I have a pretty demanding schedule but I always visit when someone takes the time to comment and I do follow back. I am at http://thebeverlyhillbabies.com.
I think forming blog relationships is so much like forming personal relationships. I don't have a single subscribed reader to my blog - and comments are few and far between (can you guess, my blog is new). Right now I"m focusing on writing content, promoting that content on my FB page, Pinterest and Twitter and waiting with fingers crossed that my following will start to build.
That being said, I have started to slowly build real relationships with the authors of the blogs I follow. I give genuine comments on their blogs, follow them on FB, twitter and via RSS. I've contacted them to let them know I am a dyed-in-the-wool fan. Most see that I'm really a part of their blog community and if my blog suits their tastes, become part of mine. Getting readership is hard. My own mom doesn't subscribe to my blog. (sheesh, right?)
I participated in my first blog-hop this week. I gained two new twitter and facebook followers. It took me almost 3 hours to do all the things necessary to meet the terms of the hop. Not a very good ROI in my opinion. However, I'll do one or two more just to see if that changes. A/B testing and all that jazz.
I believe part of my problem is that I'm "giving too much away" on facebook and twitter. They have no need to go to the blog. If anyone knows how to get around this and still maintain interaction via social media - I'm all ears. Seriously. I haven't figured this one out yet.
Looking forward to your feed back and will go check out some of the blogs from you ladies above. :) Feel free to do the same if you'd like.Code Red Hat - Survival Skills for the Modern Mom
I usually do a lot of following (and commenting in relation to the blog) over the weekend. www.tidbitsofexperience.com
I totally get where you are coming from! I just dont get the follow and I will follow you back thing!
I just read your blog and seems like a lot of fun.
I just started blogging and it is turning out to be a lot of fun.
Hope you like mine back too :)
I completely agree with what you are saying. I was thinking this tonight as I scrolled through posts on how to gain followers. I don't want just numbers, I want people who will interact and enjoy my blog as well. :) I am going to check out your blog now :)
I just went over to Myma's blog and I could not see anything as well. Here's my blog, do hop over and see if you like anything there. :) It is very new, so I welcome any feedback for improvement.
