Another week – another opportunity to grow together! This week is StumbleUpon – one of my favorites! Whoo hoo! Let’s stumble! 🙂 – Erin
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:
So, are you going to pick up the gauntlet? Together we can all make 2016 a great year!!
This week, link up the URL to your StumbleUpon account (NOT YOUR BLOG URL), follow others on the list. This linkup will be open for the next week, so come back and follow more as the week goes on, and get followed back! This is not a link dump, if you aren’t following others your link will be deleted. Thanks.
To find the URL to your StumbleUpon profile, open up StumbleUpon account, sign in and click the down arrow-next to your profile pic, click on “settings”, then click on “profile” which is right underneath the orange stumble button top center, now grab the URL in the browser bar.
My URL is: http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/nikkihamilton Yours should be similar!
This week is StumbleUpon week.
If you are not using StumbleUpon for your blog you are missing out HUGE! I love StumbleUpon, it’s the easiest platform to use, fun and it gives the best returns of any platform. Remember to add at least 10 posts from another blogger or website before you add yours, here are some articles for you to read touting the benefit of StumbleUpon, if you don’t have an account, set one up, follow everyone in the linkup and we’ll follow you back!
By the way, share this, let’s reach out to as many bloggers as we can, I’ve made it easy to Tweet above. Let’s make 2016 a year for blogging community!
PS Remember to come back and follow the others that join the linkup, if you do not follow the others your link will be removed. Blog Karma Baby. Give and you shall receive.
