Why do relationships matter in blogging? - One of the most sought after thing that I witness today is blogging. Many people are attracted to this lucrative task without even knowing the true worth of it.
As a blogger, I have failed many times at the early stage of my blogging life but I don’t regret it, rather I see them as the golden years of my life that changed my blogging view. I now blog more often and no everything that is required to take a blog from nowhere to become an authority.
Among them one most important thing you need as a blogger is – build new relationship with other bloggers.
Why should you stay connected with other bloggers?
One of the biggest reason to stay connected with other bloggers – newbies or pros is that you can learn many new things about blogging. Even a new blogger can sometimes teach you lessons that you will feel jealous of him.
You are too active as a blogger, you know about many plugins, you know coding, you can drive large number of traffic to your blog, blah blah blah… So what if you can do this? Every blogger can do this. But only bloggers who are kind enough to establish a good relationship with his visitors will be able to generate long-term results.
Even Superman can’t reach everywhere…
A blog survives on the traffic it receives. No traffic means it will be a waste of time and energy to run the blog. There are many ways to get traffic, but the most used and effective way is the use of social media.
Social Media boasts of millions of users and not taking benefit of them is a foolish task. But can you alone reach such a wide audience? No, not at all.
But just think if you had good relations with other successful and established bloggers that have a large following, help you promote it; that would be great.
When can you get such a gesture? Only when you are kind enough to do it. Always read posts of different popular blogs and upcoming blogs and share your love by a little tweet or a share, and you will see the same thing happening to you. In this way your post will be served to a large number of hungry audiences without your knowledge even.
People visit and link back when they believe in you…
Do you think the top bloggers would like to link back to a blog who doesn’t have a recognition. No, Never. Even after posting regularly on your blog and writing quality content, you don’t get proper visitors then you are at fault. Just a simple reason for this failure, you are not trying to build your image, your brand.
Writing consistently and quality content is a great thing, but building a brand is important. Try contacting bloggers and sharing your views regarding a topic. 3-4 emails back and forth and you will make a friend. Ask him to help you promote your blog.
Spare some bucks and get your blog a unique logo, spread it on the whole Internet, use it on each and every social media platform. Make it your blog’s identity. Whenever your blog’s name comes, your logo must immediately click in the person’s mind.
All I need to say is that along with posting quality content, spare some time in building and maintaining relationships. If you have lots of friends, you will get more visitors, more number of shares and tweets and everything that you were not able to do will be done on autopilot. That’s too awesome, isn’t it ?
So let’s start connecting with new bloggers now and help each other.
