Make Some Traffic
The next thing we’re going to discuss (yes you are pleased to put some comments also) over here, is about getting some traffic in your blog. I realized that previously I had posted about EntreCard Advantages but before that, I want to make some openings first.
When you wrote something, you definitely want it to be read by others (believe me, I do). And the best way to interact with others from the blogosphere, and letting them know that you have something on your blog waiting for someone. Is by visiting them first, and then you’ll let them know that you’re exists and so does your blog. And that can be done by leaving your name, and your blog address in their comment area.
The good thing about a blog, is: You can interact with the people behind it, the other people that visiting, and whoever want some piece of the plunder. When you can interact, that means you can put some impression on the process, and it works to establish your image and reputation.
If you read this, you should see a comment area below. That means I’m waiting for your response. Okay, that’s not what blogwalking (hee,hee). Now about blogwalking: It’s an activity where you spend some time, roaming the blogosphere and leaving a trail of your existence, on the comment area. Usually there’s blogwalking, bloghopping, blogjogging, etc. But the main idea is, to spend your time visiting others’ blog and put some comments.
And make sure you’re leaving a content-related comments, before you leave. Why? There are some effects I had from those who leave non-related comments:
- The WordPress Engine noticed it as spam, because it contains too many links.
So stop promoting your link, and repeating it is a bad idea.
- You’re junk-ing.
Thanks for the greetings, thanks for the complement. But if the content is far from those two, there’s a big chance you’ll be listed as spam and believe me you don’t want that to happen.
The point is, don’t trying too hard. Just use your time effectively, because blogging sure consume most of my time. My tips are:
When you land on a page. Read it! Pay some attention to the first few sentences, and see if you’re attracted to read on and see what’s next. If you can do that, than you’ll definitely be able to give your response in the most gracefull ways. In other cases, if you don’t feel like it, scroll to the bottom of the page and just put some comments like “Hello, I’m visiting your blog for a blogwalking.” or “hi, I’m just dropping by” which I found more acceptable.
Join the Social Blogger Community
Okay, if you don’t know where to start your blogwalking. You can visit a blog, then put your related comments, and then start visiting others that also publish their comment before you. That’s a good idea. But if there’s no comment, and you always be the first to do that, well.. congratulations then. Err.. no,no,no I mean, you can get a hand from another resource available on the internet. It’s called Social Blogger Community.
What on blogosphere is it? It’s a place where we (bloggers) put our profile, list our blog(s), and interact with others. It’s interesting, just like social networking sites. But here, you put your blog on the shelf. Here’s my list:
If you checked that pages I mentioned, you probably have seen what it’s like to have your blog listed.. your friends see it, and you can broadcast a notification to others when you interacts in the blogosphere, and so many other self-promoting acts available. So I say, go get one because it helps me alot, especially on triggering my mood when it comes to blogwalking.
Oh, if you manage to get your hand on one of it, you can add me to your contacts as you will.
