Once A Day? Maybe Twice A Week? Visit Our Followers!


I started thinking about what would happen if all of us bloggers made it a point to visit our followers a little more often? And while we are there, be sure to “like” or “re-blog” a post? I know I like meeting new voices, and faces, via my daily blogging journey. I have met more nice people in the last few months here, than I have in public. I am not quite sure how this sounds! 🙂

I know I have become much more aware of differing, and like-minded views through my blog. I have also become better educated about my new favorite group of folks; The Foodies.” This is not to say I don’t enjoy everybody’s friendship just as much.

Well this is just my nickel’s worth of an idea to help grow our blogging friends, which in turn grows our views. And it is safe to say we all like to check our “views today” chart.

God Bless ya all!

    Many bloggers think blogging is a one way street. I don’t expect a comment or like from everyone that visits as I often I may not have anything to say of worth on their post, but some reciprocity is in order. No discourse = termination of subscription by me. That is unfortunate because it inhibits growing networks of people of similar networks.

    I have a good time imagining my friends enjoying my writings, every time I write something. Posting on web is like sending a message in a bottle to the ocean, invoking many happy and curious imaginations. And yes, it’s a great experience to read something written by another, though I don’t think one has to leave footprints on them every time.

    I religiously and alphabetically visit the sites on my Blogroll. The number is growing and days become busier so sometimes it takes me a while to visit the others. It does frustrate me. But frustration vanishes off the face of the Earth once I get to start reading each latest posts. 😀

    Thanks for the great advice 🙂 I also try to visit the sites I enjoy the most , and yes it does get difficult some times, but it’s always nice to read what people have been thinking about.

    I hate when life gets in the way of blogging! Each one of your bloogs is like a different book. This is why I enjoy having two months off during the summer. It allows me time to enjoy all of your blogs, without being rushed.

    I think there’s something about blogging where it seems to zero you in on the people you hit it off with. Bloggers are thinkers and I love to see what they are going to think about next! My routine is that I write one day and then read blogs the next day. It really is a life enriching experience!

    I agree about visiting fellow bloggers, and commenting. I visit dozens of sites a day, and comment. But I do not believe in re-blogging. I think it violates copyrights. Many bloggers agree, and many of us have asked WordPress to remove this posting option. I work hard on my posts – at least 8 to 10 hours of recipe testing, photographing, editing photos and writing for each and every post. If someone wants to share a post with their readers, give them a link. I share links as often as possible, as I believe in driving as much traffic to my blogging friends as possible. But I would never re-blog a post. Frankly, it’s too easy for people to be confused over the source of a re-blogged post and photos.

    That’s just my opinion.

    I should have added that I don’t think in any way that YOU are trying to steal posts on this site! I know that is not your intention, and I appreciate that you have given credit to the posts you re-blog. This is one of the great things about the internet – we can agree to disagree! I know it’s been a topic of conversation on your blog…

    I think people shouldn’t be ridiculous about reblogging. A reblog is a gift that will lead new followers to your blog. Every bloggers goal is to gain more traffic, but if people don’t know you exist, it doesn’t matter if you are “blogging gold”.
