Here we are past the halfway mark and I'm still finding some blogs with a lot less followers than they should have. So today I'd like for everyone to try a little exercise in social media networking.
Since a big part of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge has to do with networking, building communities, gaining followers (who you hope will become your regular readers), and discovering new blogs to follow, let's try to give a power boost to everyone we can today.
Below I've listed some blogs that have a Friend Connect widget. Some of these are below 50 followers and I like to see us get them to that number. In the second list there are blogs that are on their ways to 100 followers--let's get them there today. And if you see that they've already hit today's goal then help them get to the next level. If you don't see the widget first off then scroll down until you find it. As of this writing these blogs all had a Friend Connect widget.
How will it help you besides maybe giving you a good feeling that you helped others? If you follow any of these, leave a comment letting them know that you've done so and invite them to visit your blog as well. If everyone is following the blog etiquette of reciprocity then you'll both get a new follower from your actions.
So how about it A to Zingers! Give the community a boost today and let's see how much growth we can all experience in our blogs at the midway part of the Challenge.
Extra Bonus: If you want to take it even a step further, when you visit a blog to make a comment, visit the other bloggers who have already commented on that blog and join their blogs. You can see some very serious blog building action with this added step. This is a bonus move for those who have the time to do it. I think you may have fun with this one.
