Banding together is great Karma…
Bloggers are a unique bunch. We are so creative and it’s hard to slow down enough to think about blogging in a logical manner. You may know where you want to end up, or have a dream of what your blog will look like when you succeed. But it’s the getting there that we need to think about.
Sometimes it seems all we do is work on the blog, creating, photographing, writing, editing, visiting other bloggers, social media promoting, linking to blog parties. And it takes so darn long to get ahead. So long. It’s frustrating.
We are all going through the same thing, but we don’t need to go it alone. We can, and should be doing this together.
Why Should We Work Together?
Brands and Sponsors are looking for bloggers just like you and me, but they need us to have a platform that matches their vision. You may already have the blog of their dreams, but perhaps you don’t have the quanity of social media contacts they require. They need an audience, and they will happily pay you to promote their products if they see that your blog has a large social media following.
Many brands/sponsors will increase your earnings for a larger audience. We can organically increase our followers, but that can take years. And hours and hours each and every day to achieve.
Again, Blogging is NOT a competition.
So, why aren’t all of us bloggers working together more? Why aren’t we jumping at the chance to follow each other on social media? You don’t have to write a blog in my niche for me to learn from you, how you tweet, share, write, brand. And I’m not competing for my share. There’s enough to go around. Honest.
And we would love to throw down the challenge, let’s work together to grow! Social Media Blast will be live on Four Blogs, giving you the opportunity to hang out with us and meet our Social Media Following. Yeehaw! Let’s Party!
Let’s all support each other. Link up each week, there will be a different Social Media Platform for you to build, we will focus mostly on the top platforms that Brands and Sponsors like to see. This is where the Blog Karma sets in, the more people you follow, the more will follow you.
Meet your hosts:
Jessica from Adventures of a Cavemom
Lindsey from LindseyTradup.com
Yvonne from Double the Monkey Business
Nikki from View From In Here
Leanna from Faeries and Fauna
So, we’re throwing down the gauntlet, getting the ball rolling. Let’s change our thinking and work together. 2016 could be an incredible year, if we decide that we aren’t competing with each other. We’re on the same team. #WAYWOW Social Media Blast will be featured every Thursday on multiple blogs, we can use it to grow, each and every one of us.
Here’s the challenge, stop competing, let’s all support each other. Link up each week, there will be a different Social Media Platform for you to build, we will focus mostly on the top platforms that Brands and Sponsors like to see. This is where the Blog Karma sets in, the more people you follow, the more will follow you.
So, are you going to pick up the gauntlet? Together we can all make 2016 a great year!!
