About once a month I host Brag About Your Blog day on my Facebook wall. A couple of months ago over 200 people bragged about their blogs! Not only did the bloggers get a lot of visibility on my Wall, they also benefited from additional posts on Facebook as well as a lot of tweeting about the opportunity.
But the biggest visibility opp showed up a couple weeks later. I started seeing posts on Facebook thanking me for my good blogging karma and I had no idea what was being referred to. When I checked out a post, I followed a link to an article on WE Magazine called 101 Women Bloggers to Watch in 2011. Editor Heidi Richards had culled the list of blogs posted on my wall and featured dozens of the women who had taken the opportunity to brag about their blog. It was so cool! Quite a few of my blogging clients and friends were on the list.
Once again, these savvy bloggers are reaping the rewards with more visibility – shout outs of thanks and congratulations on Facebook and Twitter, comments on the original blog post, and related blog posts like this one which in the end drive more traffic and engagement on their sites.
What are you doing to boost the visibility of your blog? Visibility is what creates trust, credibilty and drives more traffic, leads and enagement on your blog. Like a product or service, your blog requires consistent promotion so your audience doesn't forget about you!
