How to Grow Your Blog

One excellent way to grow your blog and your readers is through NETWORKING because it really works! Even if you only do one of these memes you will see some improvement. It’s a lot of work to do them all so a good plan is to try some of them out and see which ones you like the best or have the most success with. They all focus on different aspects of your blog so if you want to focus on Facebook one week, then do all the Facebook related parties.

If you know of any other link parties that help you network, please leave a comment so we can all check it out. Happy Hopping!

Fun Follow Friday

Tweet It Out Tuesday

This meme is hosted by Empowering Mommy. All you need to do is leave a comment to whatever you want to get the word out about like a giveaway, review, sale, blog post, etc. Empowering Mommy will tweet it and Facebook it out for you. Before you leave, choose someone else’s tweet from the list and return the favour by tweeting it out to your followers or Facebook it your friends/fans. I choose the post right before mine and tweet it out. If you are feeling really generous, tweet them all out and let the person know you did. They will likely return the favour and follow you back too!
