#Blogmas2018 Ritu’s Blog Tips #9

Day 9!

My muse, my tea my workstation!

Interaction is KEY!

You can’t go building a blog without other people. 

You want to be read, but you kinda have to return the favour.

I’m not talking about follow for follow, but actually reading other blogger’s posts and interacting with them.

Liking and commenting on their posts opens a doorway for a genuine following.

And not just ‘Great Post!’ or ‘Love this!’ but meaningful comments that can start a conversation.

I know you can’t do that for every post you read, but if you make a point of commenting on a specific amount of post read in a day/week (target is up  to you!) you are sure to see the return coming to your blog, and them doing the same. 

These interactions will build the kind of following that is actually genuine, and not just numbers of people who click follow, but never read your posts.

    Interesting, too, that by reading not just the post but other people’s comments can be very enlightening. I’ve made blogging friends by commenting on someone’s comment or checking out the commenter’s blog.

    I realized, at some point, that when you interact with other peoples’ blogs, you often are the reason they don’t quit. My best blog relationships are with people who were there right when I was about to give up, and I hope other people get to see me as a regular reader and a reason not to quit too!

    I can honestly say that this advice is spot on, Ritu. And, the rewards are larger than having followers – there are some wonderful people out here ❤️

    I so agree. If only one had more time though. I try to rotate which blog posts I comment on as I really would like to comment on all of them. I have made some wonderful friends in this blogging community.

    To me this is one of the most important points. Again it is about appreciation and a giving and taking. Interaction gives blogging a deeper meaning, connects, and creates friendships.

    Great advice, Ritu. Engagement is so important as you get to ‘meet’ your audience as well as gauge that your posts are helping/entertaining people.

    It’s not always easy to be meaningful, but the conversations can be great fun.
