Hello blogging friends! I had some questions for those of you who have successful blogs with followers.

Have you found Facebook to be one of the best ways to gain followers and spread your blog? What else are you using? How do you get people to read it?

I have a small following on Facebook, and participated in a few of those "I'll like you if you like me" things...but I feel like that was just a cheap way to get "numbers" not actual people reading the blog.

Any and all advice is much appreciated.

Hi!

I just checked out your blog, it is very nice! And your small following is better than mine (hehe I have 0 likes so far). So what was your first step to get to 100 followers?

Hi Pamela,

The first 50 or so "likes" were all friends and family. I had the blog for a little bit before I decided to announce on Facebook its existence. I kind of liked having the anonymity. However, I quickly realized that I had to start somewhere if I wanted it to grow.

I tried a couple of "Facebook Friday" things, but basically you and a bunch of other bloggers are "liking" each other's pages purely for the numbers. And I had a lot of people promise to do it and then never did...and here I was following 40 blogs on FB I didn't know anything about.

Soooo that's where I am now. I don't know how to genuinely get more people to "like" it, and "like" it because they actually want to read it.

But I will go check out your blog now, and let me be you FB  "like" :)

Chelsey,

I did what you said and boom I have 30 likes! I have to tell I was embarrassed to tell my friends and family but as you said I had to start somewhere, so thanks for the tip!

I am also looking in your blog for your Facebook and Twitter links so I can follow you, but I can't find them. Send them to me I would love to give you a big LIKE, and also I am enjoying reading your blog posts. I will comment on your last post (the Diva Cup one) soon, the comment from Erin is pretty funny :)

xoxo
Pamela
