I’ve been blogging for a year and a half– crazy, right? I finally feel like I have a perspective and that I’ve learned a lot of helpful information in that time. There are a lot of blogging resources out there, but here are four that I think are really useful, easy to use, and are worth your time!
Giveaway Promote is a completely free clearinghouse for giveaways. (If you’d like increased exposure, there are other options that cost a little bit of cash. But being listed in their directory is totally free.) Provide some information and your link and reach a larger audience. I list each of my giveaways with Giveaway Promote and always see increased traffic after I do. (If you love entering giveaways, it’s also a great place to find them!)
If you’re a female blogger, you need to follow @FemaleBloggerRT on Twitter. Tag them in a post and they’ll retweet it basically instantly to their 2,000 followers. They also choose a Female Blogger of the Week every week. It’s a great way to get more eyeballs on your post and to find other fantastic writers and social media mavens!
Full disclosure: I started the Blogging Collective for bloggers to gain more exposure and expand their audiences. Become a part of the Pinterest board– pin your work and repin others’ (they’ll do the same). Think of it as a take-a-penny-leave-a-penny dish for blogging! If you’d like to be part of the board, follow it and email jomygosh [at] gmail [dot] com with your handle!
20 Something Bloggers is a forum for– you guessed it– 20 something bloggers! Because it’s a niche site, it frequently has promotion and sponsored post opportunities that are actually attainable. (Remember my reviews of Little Failures and NatureBox? Both of those opportunities came from 20SB!)
