Outside of the box ways to promote your blog and increase following?

Hi mommy bloggers,

I recently started my blog, where I write about my two boys, 3 Year Old and 4 Month Old and occasionally about my husband, 36 Year Old. I've started blogging after having my second child and as many new bloggers I am trying to increase my following. Some useful tips I can offer other beginners: try to comment on like-minded blogs, post questions on parenting forums that allow using a link to your blog as part of your signature, join blog hops. I've tried to think outside the box and recently decided I wanted to carry my blog's URL with me and what better way than to print it on a shopping bag. I am now waiting for it to be shipped and I'll be curious to see if that helps in any way. I've been doing all of those but I wonder if there is anything else that experienced bloggers could suggest. In and outside the box :-)

Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hello Katia,

These are great ideas.  Love the idea of a shopping bag.  I have a shopping bag picture on my Facebook page and on my Twitter account.  It would be perfect to add my link to it.  Thanks for a great idea!!

Hi Henna,

Thanks so much for the comment. I've started using the shopping bag, the thing is it's hard to track if it's working or not... Every couple of days my blog stats show a search on Google for IAMTHEMILK but whether it's the bag or not, I can't tell. What I do know is that I did get more Google searches and twitter adds on a day I took the boys to the science centre. It's always busy and bustling with families on weekends so this was the only case I was pretty certain that those were shopping-bag-generated Google searches :-P

Thanks for the link to your blog, I'll take a look!
