Social Media (what I use)
- Bloglovin’ (made an account few days ago)
- Youtube (I don’t use this as a social media platform because I’m not a vlogger)
The upper two social media platforms are the ones I really use. I don’t have twitter because in my opinion it’s almost the same as Instagram, it’s just that I like to see pictures instead of text and I just love how you can scroll through someone’s feed. I don’t use snapchat because really what’s that about… Almost every blogger has an Instagram! it’s also a great platform if you want to start a small business!
Facebook is something I haven’t been using a lot lately, I only have Facebook to post photos and sometimes share a video of cats… or dogs… oh and music. I also have my family on Facebook. Some live in other countries so it’s nice to be able to keep in touch with them.
I recently made a Bloglovin’ account and linked my blog to the account of Bloglovin’. So if you have a Bloglovin’ account too then there’s a follow button on my page on the right side. I still have to figure out how it works though.
There is only one way to get more followers and that is to be active yourself, not only in posting but especially in reading in the Reader of WordPress. Comment, like, have conversations, follow blogs, it doesn’t matter as long as you’re active. People love it when they get likes or comments, I mean don’t you? I love it when people comment and give likes, that’s why I started blogging in the first place. I scroll through the Reader and I give likes and comment a lot, this way you’ll get more followers. Sometimes if you have the same subject blog/post you can comment on their post and with some typing tactic you could lead them to read your blog or follow.
commenting on someone else’s post:
me: Your photos are so awesome!
him/her: thank you, I appreciate that! 🙂
me: I have been there too, I took a lot of photos which I also posted on my blog 🙂
him/her: cool, I’ll check that out ^^
see what I did there. I led that person to take an interest in my blog. This way your blog gets checked out and perhaps they follow you.
There is also the case that when you comment and like on someone’s post, other bloggers that have liked that post will check you out too. Make sure that if someone comments or likes your post to check that person out and give them a like/comment/follow back!
It’s actually quite simple but you have to put some effort in it. I spend the whole sunday reading in the Reader and commenting and liking posts (ok and watched Stranger Things on Netflix too). Even subjects that are not relative to my blog can be interesting).
Don’t be afraid to give me a follow on social media! Let me know what you do to get more followers let’s share our tactics!
Hope this motivates you! Cheers 🙂
