Hello out there, it’s time to share!
As bloggers, community is everything. We sit here and type out our precious thoughts, as if we’re talking to ourselves, but then we realize someone, who lives in a faraway place where they don’t know what bagged milk is, heard us. And that feels good.
We’re a support system, motivating each other to write more and more. But sometimes it’s hard finding new bloggers to follow.
Now that I’ve buttered you up, let’s roll.
That was a bread and butter joke. We like food here.
Exactly one year ago, I did this exact same post – Share Your Blog 2019. I asked bloggers to introduce themselves in the comments section and add a link to their blog.
75 bloggers participated and many new connections were made. The comments section was bumping. Did I use that word correctly? It’s 2020, I’m trying new words around here. I’m feeling self-conscious about it, though.
Anyway, we’re doing it again. We’re going to start the year out right, so I hope you brought your appetite.
If you want to meet new bloggers, introduce yourself in the comments section below and leave a link to your blog. It could be a link to your homepage, or to one of your favourite posts.
If I were to leave a comment, I’d say something like this:
Hi, I’m Paul! You can call me Paul. My blog, The Captain’s Speech, is six and a half years old, which means it starts Grade 2 in the fall. When I’m not comparing it to a child, I’m comparing it to an all you can eat buffet – there’s something for everyone and mints on your way out. I try to incorporate humour into as many of my posts as I can because laughing is important. My goal is to keep your interest for every single word, without skipping any, or getting bored. If I feel like you’re skimming, I’ll put some words in italics or bold, to draw you back in and make you think they are more important. Here’s a link to my blog, feel free to say hello, or goodbye. You pick.
Just be yourself. They’re just words, you just have to pick the right ones.
1. Introduce yourself in the comments section below
2. Talk about yourself/your blog
3. Leave a link to your blog
4. Interact with the other bloggers who comment
Optional: To spread the word and really get this comment section bumpin’ (I dropped the ‘g’, did it make a difference?), feel free to include a link to this post in your next blog post. Just say, “Hey, Paul made me do it!” or something.
Let’s try and spread this like a virus in flu season. But not literally. Sneeze and cough into your sleeve.
Last year, we got 75 bloggers. This year, let’s get more. Don’t let me down, it’s only the second day of the year.
And remember, sharing is daring! Or is it caring? Carolling?
Sharing is carolling, so let’s toot our horns and sing our own praises. Bam.
