Connecting the dots and taking “luck” out of the picture is the mark of a true networker!
Okay, I followed you on Twitter, retweeted this post, and liked your Facebook page and profile.
You can make it easier for bloggers to do this if you add a sidebar. WordPress has widgets you can just drag and drop there for people to follow you on Twitter and like your Facebook page. Just in case you want to take the preparedness up a notch.
But this post worked pretty well, too. 🙂
Oh goodness, you’re right! My old theme had those prominently at the top of the webpage, and I forgot to add them to the sidebar when I switched. thanks for the heads up, I’ll add those widgets.
I really love this post. You’ve got it so right! We often forget that talking about progress isn’t actually making progress. When I went back and looked at some of my work/efforts, I saw some gaps that were senseless, such as not mentioning my second travel blog on my About Page and not using social media to update non-wordpressers about new posts. There have been other, bigger things as well; other projects left rusting in a corner. So much to do, so much progress to be made. Thanks darling. Love the Ellen example, fyi. That was a perfect visualization.
Yes, from my brief perusal, I love both your travel blog and your more personal blog! They’re different types of writing, but similar style, still your brand. Cross-promote 🙂
In regards to social media, I try to remember that not everyone checks their email or has a blog feed, because they’re not necessarily into the blogging world. But they may still be my audience and be all about clicking through to a blogpost if I share it to Facebook or Twitter. I want to “count” my followers as my followers, whether that’s through my blog or through social media.
But I’m always catching gaps in my preparedness (aren’t we all? haha, I bet even Ellen has some.) You’re right! So much to do, so little time. I’ve got backburner projects coming to the front, and I just need to get more stuff out there!
Thank you so much Amy for the lovely words! It makes me so happy to hear them. 🙂 You know, I never thought to count my friends who aren’t bloggers as followers! I’m gonna mentally add those extra 2 to my count right now haha.
Hahahaha, yes, anyone regularly reading your work in any capacity I would say you can “count” 😉 whether in person, social media, email, wordpress, heck even snail mail lol.
