The Friend Friday group is always chatting it up about something or another..we’re bloggers this is what we do but this week, the topic that is top of the list is, Blogger Self Promotion. So let’s get to it and find out how we promote ourselves to the world.
1. How do you promote your blog?
Through Facebook, Twitter, leaving comments on other blogs and just plain ole word of mouth! I yeah I guess participating in FF is helping too. I’m gonna invest in some business card soon and buy a domain name also.
2. In your experience what has been the most effective form of self
Engaging the blogger community through comments and tweets. Once you are getting out there so to speak, traffic will come from a variety of sources.
3. Do you think there is a wrong way to promote yourself and your
Not really, but I don’t want to be the woman who is always pushing her link at you everytime she tweets. I would love to have a huge following but not at the expense of being pushy and overbearing. I am truly loving the slow growth and fostering of relationships.
4. When it comes to others pushing their product what annoys you?
The common comment when visiting someone blog…cute outfit, check out my blog, http://imsopushy.com. Seriously and I should want to check out your blog after that?
5. In Dressful’s post on this topic earlier in the week she said,
“It’s impossible to respect someone who wants all the attention, but
adds nothing worthwhile to the conversation.” Do you agree?
I do but only if she is a well seasoned blogger who know blogger ettiquette but ignores it because she is a spotlight hogging little scene stealer. Ok but for reals, yeah I was for real but in addition, people will naturally want to see who you are and what you have to say when you are interested in what is important to them as well.
As always, we welcome your participating in our dialogue. If interested contact Katy Rose at Modly Chic to get on board. While over there check out the rest of the Friend Friday crew. (I have a linky up but it has issues and doesn’t want to work properly for me)
