Some Cool Blogging Tips To Increase Your Followers

Hello everyone!!

As most of you know, I just reached 1000 followers 3 days ago and as part of my week celebration of this huge achievement, I’d like to share some tips about how to increase your followers. I will share tips based on my own experiences so let’s get started!!!

Promote in other social media sites

During the first months of my blogging experience, I did not really share my posts in Twitter and Instagram. (Twitter and IG are the only social media sites that I use for blogging.) In fact, I don’t really have an account back then. I started to create one and I followed people on Twitter same in Instagram– I never thought that I’ll have friends from those sites and now, they read my blog and I read theirs. Promoting your blog in other sites is normal as long as you’re promoting in your own account and in your profile only. But if you spam others to visit your blog that’s out of the context and that’s totally annoying.

So if ever you’ll be promoting your posts in other sites, think wisely about sharing. Don’t spam others. They will visit your blog if they want to.

If you want to gain 10 followers this day, visit 20 to 30 more blogs.

I swear this is one of the most effective way to increase your visitors in your blog. I’ve tried this a lot, especially when I was blogging in everyday of summer. Before I sleep, I visit 20 to 30 more blogs and check their theme, content and follow if I like it. Eventually, I’ll reach my goal to have new 10 followers. Not all blogs you visit will follow you back. Not all will check your blog so always be more prepared.

Show passion in blogging.

I swear, if you really do love blogging, it will show off in your posts. Like Mia said in La La Land, β€œpeople love what other people are passionate about” and I can just relate that to blogging. Show your passion. People will love it eventually.

Always be nice and friendly.

One of the most important things to remember. Always be nice. If you want to tell someone about something bad or you want to give opinions about their blog, then you can always talk to them privately. I’m pretty sure most of you guys have their contact page in their blog or if not, an email where visitors can email stuff or natters. Always be nice. If you’re about to give comment, choose your words and just be nice. Be friendly.

Comment on other people’s blogposts. Some bloggers scroll through comments to find new bloggers.

This is so true. I am one of the people who does this. Whenever I’m searching for new bloggers, I look up to other people’s post comments and find new bloggers. I know most of you are the same, so I comment as well. But always remember to keep commenting nice!

And that is all for today. I’m sorry I’m quite not enjoying to make a post today. My bestest friend, my bestest cat, had died earlier. His name is Crookshanks, most of you might be familiar to him. And it hurts a lot. I:ve been crying the whole night.

Anyway, thank you so much for reading! I’m so sleepy right now so I’ll just edit the featured photo tomorrow.

    1. Thank you so much, Debbie! πŸ’— Good luck!! πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow these are great tips!! And congratulations on 1000 followers:) I too check out comments to find new bloggers(especially if I find someone I really like and want to find similar profiles) so that’s definitely a useful tip. And I’m sorry to hear about your cat – that must have been so awful and my thoughts are with you xox

    1. Thank you so so much, Maria! Haha yes I definitely do the same! πŸ™‚ It’s okay!! I’m feeling okay now unlike last night but I still miss him so much! πŸ™ Thank you for dropping by!!! πŸ’—

  5. Great tips! So sorry to hear about your cat.

    1. Thank you, Maddy!! πŸ™‚ πŸ’— And it’s okay..! πŸ™‚

  6. I’m sorry to hear about Crookshanks. RIP Crookshanks!!! On another note, very useful tips Jirah. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It’s okay, Cherylene. I’m quite okay now! πŸ™‚ And you’re soo welcome!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ’—

      1. I’m glad to hear that. πŸ™‚

  7. You shared some great advice!! 😊

    1. Thank you, Anni!!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—

  8. Oh I’m so sorry to hear about your cat hun, that’s so heartbreaking. Thinking of you <3
    On the brighter side, this is a great post. I love the last tip, I always scroll through peoples blog comments to find other bloggers! x

    1. It really is!!! But I’m quite okay now unlike last night! 😊 Thank you so much, Jennie. Haha yes, it’s a really good way to find new bloggers! x Have a lovely day!

  9. Completely agree with you!!! I recently have had to state on my social media (and a later blog post) that I will delete comments that lecture/preach. I’ve had people leave full sermons on my posts and it has nothing to do with what I wrote about. I feel disrespected and downgraded, and I don’t want my readers to feel intimidated by those commenters. I want comments to reflect the post. It’s hard when people don’t respect that.

    I also agree with you about reaching out to the community. It’s so important we do this. I don’t know if I could do 20-30 blogs, but you’re right. It is a way to find new people, but also to gently advertise. “Hey, I’m a blogger, and I have a blog,” without ever having to say that.

    Keep going strong πŸ™‚

    1. Ah no, I also don’t like those kind of comments. I put them to spam if it’s really annoying and if it doesn’t really do anything to my post! 😦

      It’s okay if you search just up to 15 or 20. It’s totally up to you! πŸ™‚ And I totally agree.

      Thank you, T.R!! Hope you found these tips helpful! πŸ˜‰πŸ’—

  10. I like your tips, and congrats on reaching 1000 followers! Commenting is definitely an effective way of getting to know other bloggers – and also of being exposed to interesting new content by people from different parts of the world!

  23. Thanks, it means a lot!

  24. Thanks! I’ve been blogging for YEARS, but I rarely get comments. I used to do the fashion/food circuit – and still do, to a certain extent, but these days, I mostly write for me. At 38, I feel that I’m kind of aging out of that world! Writing what I want makes things so much easier! πŸ™‚

    1. It also took me a year to know what blogging really is! I just started to show off my blog to the community and there! Supportive and friendly people will comment and support! You just need to find them! πŸ˜‰β€ Thank you so much for dropping by!

  25. The post is very helpful..

  30. Congratulations on your success and thanks for sharing your tips!! Getting away from my blog and engaging more with other bloggers is definitely something I need to get better at so thanks for sharing your template of 20-30 each day, definitely seems reasonable and achievable! Look forward to following your blog more

  32. Thank you so much for these tips! I’m a new blogger, still trying to figure stuff out, and am always looking for helpful tips. Also, congratulations on reaching your 1,000 subscribers! That’s great!!!
    I would love if you stopped by my new blog at http://www.theinspiredbiz.wordpress.com. If you have any tips for me, that’d be great, too! I’m hoping to edit another blog which will be more lifestyle as well.
    Thanks again and have a great day!

    1. Hi, Belle! You’re very much welcome. πŸ˜€ Thank you so much, it’s my greatest achievement so far!! πŸ˜€ And sure thing, I’m gonna go visit your blog in a bit. Thank you for asking me and visiting my blog– I really appreciate it! β€πŸ’—

  33. How did you find 20-30 blogs to read through? I’m actually curious to read others blogs. It’s just hard to know what terms to search for or how to find those blogs.

    1. Oh, I find blogs by reading through the comments and sometimes, most bloggers link other bloggers to their post and I visit every one of them. Eventually I got to know new bloggers and gain followers. πŸ™‚ ❀

      1. Oh okay πŸ™‚ I know that was kind of a dumb question. Cool thank you for the tips!

        1. Ah no it’s really fine!! You’re free to ask me anything about gaining followers! 😊❀

  34. Thanks so much for this! I have only been blogging for a month and it is a bit lonely for me at the moment. Started using rich pins on Pinterest with little results. I will remain persistent as I am with everything else in life. Congrats on your success!

    1. You’re so welcome! Aw for sure your blogging friends will boom up soon! Thank you so much x

  35. So helpful, hopefully this will be handy as I’ve just posted my first blog!

    1. Thank you! I’m glad this helped you πŸ™‚
