Blog Help~Thinking About THINKING...and Blogging...

With so many blogs and so many blog friends available, what would a simple blogger like me have to do to find a community of readers that I can meet their needs and in the process HAVE A GREAT BLOG?

I am giving this question some snaptic power and considering a few things~

1.  Not everyone will *like* me and follow~nor will I, but the effort is well worth the prize of more friends who follow and comment~YEAH!

2.  There's limited time~I have made it may goal to follow my friends who comment and follow ME~but I realize it's not reciprocated sometimes~OH WELL...I love my friends~and maybe there are reasons...

Like~they're busy, tired, not into blogging right now, not interested in what I'm saying, not taking the time, or just flat out didn't think about it~but whatever, following behind comments and getting to know readers is GREAT networking and blog boosting...

3.  Blog tastes are different. I've fallen in LUV with quite  a few blogs; some I would like a separate follow designation like: The BEST of THE BEST so I can keep THOSE closeby~but you can bet your bottom dollar that SisterT will stop and read those blogs that catch her eye...and all readers are like this...Soo

4 The GREATEST blog boosting strategy has GOT TO BE good content...readers LUV what appeals to them...and I'm no different.  Soo blog hopping is like blog shopping~find a jewel? I like to add them to my sidebars for you all to read...share with you what I am reading and loving...Your comments give me hints on what you like and what you are thinking~I LOVE these~Please keep talking to me ;-))

5. I'd like to suggest following  Brent Riggs of Linky Tools who has several really good articles in his site Building a Better Blog. Isn't that what we all hope to do?  The above link will take you to an article on increasing traffic, readers and loyalty.  You won't go wrong to follow Brent.  He has several sites and offerings including a digital inspirational magazine, Serious Life Magazine...Go ck them out!

Thanks for reading my thinking today~and I'd deeply appreciate your reflections on my blog or any other helpful/encouraging thought you have for me~Have a blessed day! HUGS!

It's funny because I have been thinking about some of those things. I also think of my future blog, I won't always be homeschooling so I was wondering if I should be redefining what I blog about. Your honesty stands out to me. I'll still be following yah.

Great post. I'm one of those who has lately not had the time to comment as much as I would like. I'm still reading though. ;) Blog hopping, commenting, and reading is so much fun, but I need to make sure that I'm taking care of the home first. Once I get that done, then I'm allowed to hop. **grin**

Have a wonderful week!!
