Day 26: Improve Another Blog

Ahhh sorry ladies day light savings time got me! I can’t believe we are nearing the home stretch. There were so many great things that I have learned from this 31day challenge at the same time I have enjoyed meeting so many new bloggy buddies. I have really loved reading all of your blogs. We have so many great ladies here with so many wonderful stories.

I know this has been a challenge just keeping up, believe me there have been weeks that I struggled to keep up too. I know there are some ladies a little behind but just keep going forward you will make it to the end, I know you will be thankful you did!

Key Concepts:

You can make a MAJOR impression on another blogger by helping them achieve their goals for their blog. The key is to ask yourself what their needs might be and attempt to fulfill those needs in some way.

A few ideas are:

Write a high quality guest post that will be useful to another blog’s readers

Leave helpful and insightful comments

Link to the blog and share your readers with them

Promote the blog in social media and start a social bookmarking campaign for them

Recommend to your readers to subscribe to their blog

Email the blogger with some suggested topics you’d love to see them cover

Introduce them to a potential advertiser

Share with them an affiliate program that has worked for you

Write an email telling the blogger how you found one of their posts helpful.

Perform a significant action for another blog. Don’t just leave a comment on 50 blogs; focus your energy on one other blog in your niche.

Questions:

1. Which blog did you choose to support for this task? Why did you choose this blog?

2. Which actions did you take to support the blog? Were they acknowledged by the blogger?

Update: *I’d like to thank the lovely ladies of SITS whose site hosted our Problogger Winter 31 Day Challenge. At the completion of our challenge we had 19 posts on this day’s task on the SITS site’s forum.

If you are just joining us “welcome” and feel free to answer the questions here and leave a link to your post if you wrote one and we can keep the party going!
