How to Start a Poetry Blog | Get Connected

It’s Time to Get Connected.

Why is your blog not growing? Because you’re like a person who builds a website, but forgets to connect their computer to the internet! In other words, there is no connection of traffic for people to see your blog. But don’t worry, I have three easy steps for you to follow that can help greatly increase your blog exposure, “This is How to Start a Poetry Blog | Get Connected.”

It’s time to get you connected!

1. Make Friends!

That’s right, I said it! Make friends with some strangers on WordPress (or wherever you happen to blog)! Before you know it, you’ll be a part of a whole support group of fellow bloggers, with everyone supporting each other’s pages.

2. Be a Commentor, Not a Spectator!

Don’t you love when someone comments on your blog? Doesn’t it draw your attention to the commentor’s blog and build a feeling of friendship between you two?  So go ahead and comment on other blogs that you like! Also, plenty of other people viewing those blogs will see you and your comments. So make sure it’s a comment worth reading!

3. Learn to Link!

See a blog that you like? Make a link to it in one of your own posts! This is a great way to, again, make friends. Those links also build more exposure to each others’ blogs since the link will show on both posts! It’s like a web of connections, bringing greater exposure to everyone involved. A win-win!

So, are you ready to get connected?

Thank you for reading “How to Start a Poetry Blog | Get Connected.” Check out my original post, “How to Start a Poetry Blog | Best Tips for Beginners,” for the full set of blogging tips!

One creative way to get connected is by interviewing another writer! Check out Vita Brevis’ “Poet Profile: An Interview with Walt Page.” When I stumbled upon this post, I not only grew an appreciation for Vita Brevis, but also for Walt Page who, as a result, I began to “follow.” He then began to follow me as well. Just one great example of growing through a web of connections.
