Building relationships with other bloggers in your niche is one of the top ways to grow your WordPress blog and your credibility on the web. If you’re really ready to do what it takes to see your blog grow, one of your best options is certainly to reach out to other bloggers and to build relationships.
Today, Daniela Baker from CreditDonkey and a mother of two shares a few reasons you want to put some time into building relationships with other bloggers.
As a mommy blogger, you may be looking more for friendship and interaction from your blog than for profit – at least at first! The great part about blogging relationships is that they often turn into real friendships. Think about it. The people you’re reaching out to are interested in some of the same things you are, which is why they’re in your blogging niche to begin with. Relationships that start out with emails about how to grow traffic can end up in frequent phone calls about how to deal with two-year-old tantrums or stories about fun family vacations.
For your blog, relationships are vital because they can drive traffic to your site. Even just commenting on another blog and leaving your link as a calling card can get you some traffic. Exchanging links and banners with other blogs is another great way to drive more traffic to your blog, especially if you’re building relationships with bloggers who are already credible in your niche.
Even if your blogging relationships don’t turn into close personal friendships, most bloggers are willing to help one another out. Seek out relationships with those who are slightly more experienced than you, and you’ll often find they have plenty of tips and tricks that can help you develop your blog. Just exchanging emails about how another blog got started and how a blogger operates can give you insight into what you need to do to see your blog succeed.
Relationships that end up in link exchanges with relevant niche blogs can build your credibility with both the search engines and your real readers. Link exchanges that are obviously based on actual relationships and mutual interest rather than on purchases weigh more heavily with the search engines, so they can help boost your search engine ranking. Plus, exchanging links with other relevant blogs in your niche can build credibility for you with the readers of more well-established blogs, who are more likely to read your blog when they see that their favorite mommy blogger likes it.
Guest posts can be one of the best things about building relationships with other bloggers. You can get a great post written when you’re too busy to do it, or you can simply add more interest for your readers by exchanging guest posts with other bloggers in your niche. Not only do guest posts give you a day off once in a while, but they can also help add even more interest and credibility to your site, especially if your guest poster is already somewhat well-known in your niche!
There are lots of different options for covering the basic financing of your blogging start-up. It doesn’t take much, after all! You might pay for some hosting fees, and you may even hire a designer to give your blog a unique look that isn’t standard and predictable. However, even these things aren’t likely to cost all that much.
Many mommy bloggers simply budget for their blog startups, gradually adding on to their blogs so that they don’t have to worry too much about shelling out a lot of money at once. Others may use a separate business rewards credit card for their blogs. Just be sure that if you do this, you carefully track your spending and try to pay off the credit card quickly, or you could end up with major interest charges. Finding the right financing option for your blog is as simple as figuring out what you actually need to pay for and then finding the best financing option for your needs.
Financing and starting your blog is simple with all the tools available today. Just keep in mind that it does take time to build a blog and, especially, to build relationships through your blog. Just like it takes time to build relationships “in real life” it will take weeks or months for you to build relationships with other bloggers in your niche.
