New To Blogging? 10 Ways To Grow Your Blog

*Featured Post – #TheList Linky – 11th March 2016* |ย *Featured In The BritMums Blogging Tips Round-Up – 28th March 2016*

Starting a blog is an exciting, liberating experience but when you’re trying to get your writing seen and read by others and when you striving to create and establish yourself and your brand – it can be bloody hard work! ๐Ÿ˜

New To Blogging? 10 Ways To Grow Your Blog

Click the top left hand corner to pin for later ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve only been blogging for the past 8 months or so but there are a few things I wish I’d know from the very beginning which could of made things a LOT easier when I was getting started.

I know that some (clever!) people do all of their homework before starting a blog but I didn’t. I was just inspired one day, went home, opened a Blogger account (before later switching to self-hosted WP) and started my journey with no idea of what would be involved or how to get myself ‘out there’.

So, what would I tell myself if I could go all Marty McFly and hop in my time-machine-come-Delorean?

Join Facebook groups where you’re allowed to share your links

I have a list of Facebook groups that I go through every time I publish a new post. I stop by, write on the wall or the dedicated post share section with a link to my latest post, have a quick gander to see if there’s anything that I’d like to add to my own reading list and move on.

If somebody sees my share and likes what they see, the hope is that they’ll click through to the post and have a read.

Social Media Guru

It’s worth noting that you’ll need to read the rules of the groups before you do this as a lot of groups don’t allow ‘link-dumping’ whereas it is encouraged in the groups that I use for this purpose.

If you’d like an invitation to these groups please do let me know.

Comment on other blog posts

A great deal of my time is spent commenting on other blog posts and I’m sure that most bloggers would say the same – sharing the love is really important and also mutually beneficial.

Most blogs have CommentLuv activated which will pull up a link to your latest blog post when you submit your URL. The more sites that link back to yours will help to increase your Domain Authority and your Alexa ranking. In theory, more opportunities should come you way as your DA growsย and I applied for a role the other day that was based entirely on my Alexa rank so it seems this is becoming increasingly important when monetising your blog.

If you’d like to check your DA (own URL only) you can use the Moz Open Site Explorer tool. I’ve also downloaded the MozBar chrome extension for my website browser which automatically shows the DA for every website that I visit and is a quick and easy way to check my own.

To check your Alexa ranking you can download the Alexa Traffic Rankย extensionย or carry out a manual search.

I quite often get a spark of inspiration when reading other posts and it can help to spur on new content of my own. Always a bonus! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Get involved with threads

I know that some bloggers disagree with follow-for-follow or commenting threads and I completely respect their opinions. If you rely on these threads for most of your readership or statistics then you’re not gaining much of a true,ย organicย audience which is, of course, the aim for most bloggers. You’re telling your story – you want people to be genuinely interested in what you have to say.

However, I believe that these threads do have their place whether as a boost to your readership or to give certain posts the extra love they deserve (they can be very useful for sponsored posts or reviews that you want to show off).

I’ve found some of my favourite blogs via these threads as I end up reading articles that might not have caught my attention otherwise and I quite often subscribe to make sure that I don’t miss another post.

Again, please let me know if you’d like an invitation to any of the groups that run sharing threads.

Add your posts to StumbleUpon (and make sure that you stumble other content as well)

StumbleUpon is quickly becoming one of my biggest referrers and brings lots of lovely extra traffic. It takes only a few moments to add your link to SU and tag the relevant categories so it’s definitely worth doing every time you publish.

I have heard that SU doesn’t appreciate it if you simply add your own links and don’t stumble other content which is where the SU threads on Facebook can come in handy…

Find your place in the blogging community

There’s a lot of good advice that is often shared about ‘finding your blogging tribe’. I don’t think it’s something that happens overnight and it’s only recently that I’ve begun to feel that I’ve got a small group of blogging friends that I can run ideas by, share opportunities with (if I have permission to) and rely on to help push my latest post or get involved with my newest ventures.

The key is to be friendly, put yourself out there and generally get involved.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been blogging for 10 years or 10 days, there’s a place for you in the blogging community. We’re all still learning and things change so often, nobody knows it all!

Run giveaways and competitions

Everybody loves a good competition and they’re a fantastic source of additional traffic, bringing new readers to your blog who are enticed by the initial lure of entering your giveaway(s).

I run all of my competitions through Rafflecopter (just the standard free version) and it has helped a great deal when it comes to growing my social media followings. I don’t generally lose many followers, even though a lot of them are compers, as people like often like to stay in the loop as to when any new giveaways go live.

Just a quick note – if you’re registered with TOTS/HIBS/FOODIES then you aren’t allowed to have a mandatory follow option for competitions as it can end up messing up the charts. You can still ask people to follow your accounts but it must be optional.

It’s also no use going to all of the effort to prepare your competition without sharing it in the right places!

The best sources of traffic I’ve come across for giveaways are The Prize Finderย andย Loquaxย so I list my new competitions on their websites first when they go live. There’s also tons of competition groups on Facebook for you to share your links with and some specific competition linkys for you to add your giveaways to as well.

Create pinnable images and share your posts to Pinterest

Again, quite like Stumbleupon, Pinterest is a fabulous referral source – especially for recipes, crafts and other DIY-type posts.

I create a pinnable image for every post (longer, vertical images are optimum) and I also use them as my featured image so my home page looks more organised and in order as this fits in well with my theme.

To design my blog images I use online editing programs including PicMonkey (I use the paid version), Canva and Pixlr.

Participate in linkys

Linkys are a great way of sharing your latest content and discovering new blogs to read.

Quite often, the host(s) of the linky will choose their favourite post or posts from the previous week/month to feature and share on their social media channels which can help direct traffic to your blog and grow your audience.

Owl Laptop

I’ve just started a new linky this month called #TeaAndCakeLinkyย which is a chance for you to sit down and have 5 minutes to yourself whilst linking up and reading some of the longer blog posts that can often go by unappreciated. This month, my favourite post will win a gorgeous Accessorize cake plate! ๐Ÿ™‚

The list below shows my favourite linkys at the moment and I try to get involved as often as I can. One of my new blogging targets is to stick to the same linkys each week to join in with that particular community and be consistent with my content.

TUESDAY

My plan is to start publishing my reviews on a Tuesday so I can participate in #TriedAndTestedย run by Family Fever and We’re Going On An Adventure.

WEDNESDAY

I’ll also link up my favourite post from the week before to Honest Mum’s #BrilliantBlogPosts.

FRIDAY

I try to write a list on a Friday so I can link up to #TheList with You Baby Me Mummy and Mr & Mrs T Plus Three.

I usually link up the same post to Wafflemama’s #FriYAY Linky.

SUNDAY

We all know that Sundays are supposed to be nice and easy so I link up my favourite photo from the week to Photalife’s #MySundayPhoto with a few words or a quick summary. This year, I really want to use this as an opportunity to improve my photography skills.

I’ll also be adding my photo to Super Busy Mum’s new photography linky – #DevelopingLife.

MONTHLY

Each month, I try and schedule in a wishlist-style post (these are always so fun to make!) so I can get involved in Mummy Lala’s #TheWishlistLinky.

Aby over at You Baby Me Mummy has a ‘Linky List’ that she regularly updates which is really useful if you’re looking for new linkys to get involved with.

Post original, personal content on a regular basis

I fell in to the trap of taking on too many reviews –ย just for the sake of it.ย Just to show that I was getting work and to try and prove that I was worth collaborating with.

I saw every opportunity as a chance to show off what I could do but I was so busy trying to deal with outstanding work that I didn’t have the time to write about my own personal stuff or things that Iย really wanted to share with my readers.

So, I took a step back, dealt with my backlog and vowed not to accept any work unless it was suitable for the blog (without any doubt at all) and something that I really wanted to try, showcase or advertise.

I’ve found my balance, for now, and I’m really enjoying writing about the things that I want to and getting back to why I started blogging in the first place. I’ve had tons of positive feedback and I feel very happy with the direction I’m going in.

Find a suitable blogging planner

There’s so many blogging planners available from make-your-own printables, excel spreadsheets or specifically designed diaries.

I’ve tried a few methods and I’ve had the most success with the electronic spreadsheet but I’ve found recently that I just prefer writing things down manually.

Blogger Planner 1

Blogger Planner 2

At the moment, I’m using this weekly planner from Sainsbury’s which cost just ยฃ5.00. I’m able to write in the date myself and list the posts that I want to schedule for that particular day. At the top of the page, there’s also a ‘to-do’ list and a place for any additional notes.

I find that as your blog grows and the creativity flows, it’s essential to organise your thoughts and plan as you go.

A blogging planner is a definite must-have!

Popular choices I’ve seen include Cocochic’s ‘The Blogger Journal’, the very stylish ‘The Bloggers Planner‘ and the create-your-own ‘Personal Planner’.

Be active on social media (and schedule, schedule, schedule!)

Your social media channels are an extension of your blog and platforms like Instagram and Facebook, in particular, are often used for micro-blogging.

Being active on social media will increase your Kloutย score showing potential brands and PR companies that your digital influence is worthย its salt.

I find it difficult to schedule as much as I should and it’s one of the things that I need to work on going forwards.

If you’re using WordPress then it might be worth downloading theย ‘Evergreen Post Tweeter’ plugin which allows you to automatically tweet links to your blog posts throughout the day (you can set the time and frequency as desired). You can also dictate an age range for the posts to be shared and which catergory(ies) you wish the posts to be takenย from.

You can schedule your Facebook Page posts directly through the Facebook website or the Pages app.

For Twitter, I use a combination of the Social Oomph website and the Buffer app/chrome extension.

Well, I hope you’ve picked up something new by reading this post whether you’ve come across a new linky that you’d like to join in with or any other tips that might help you on your way ๐Ÿ™‚

It took *quite* a while to put this article together so if it has helped you in any way I would really appreciate it if you gave it a quick share? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really useful tips there, will be saving this to Pocket so I can go back to it later. I need to get better at using sites like Stumble Upon & to venture in to the world of linkys – they seem to be bigger in mummy blogging. I guess the main takeaway from this post is that it takes lots of work & won’t happen overnight. I’d add though that however much you get your blog out there, people won’t stick around unless there’s lots of good content to keep them interested.

    • March 4, 2016 / 7:55 PM

      That’s very true – content is key ๐Ÿ™‚ And no, it won’t happen overnight but steady, gradual growth is encouraging and what we all aim for x

  2. March 4, 2016 / 9:14 AM

    Lots of great tips here! I really like Hootsuite for scheduling Twitter and I also try to engage on Instagram with other bloggers as it is a great place to get to know people through their personal pictures etc x

      Aw thank you, I hoped it would be useful to bloggers in a similar situation to my own x

  3. March 4, 2016 / 10:06 AM

    I really need to learn more about stumbleupon – I don’t know really know what it is. Cringe. Agree with all of your points x

    • March 4, 2016 / 7:56 PM

      Ah just take the plunge, it’s super easy and a great traffic builder ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  4. March 4, 2016 / 10:32 AM

    I’m an alternative fashion blogger and a music blogger, so it’s really hard to find my niche. That said, I often find introducing people to my work when they’re unfamiliar works just as well – because they didn’t even know such a form of blogging existed! Facebook groups and Stumbleupon are invaluable too, most of my traffic comes from there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • March 4, 2016 / 7:57 PM

      Eeek that sounds right up my street, I will be checking out your blog shortly! Xx

  5. March 4, 2016 / 11:02 AM

    Fabulous post full of great information and helpful links! Perfect for newbies and established bloggers too – its good to have all the info in one place!

  6. March 4, 2016 / 11:04 AM

    What an extremely helpful post! I’m very new to blogging and I’m always for looking for ways to get my posts out there and making sure that they are the right ways for me. I didn’t even know there were facebook groups where you can just share a link to your post, I’ve joined a couple of comment threads on Facebook this week, but I’m not sure if that’s the way forward for me, hmm it’s a hard one. Sharing now!

    Definitely agree with all your suggestions, especially the Facebook support groups/threads. I’ve been blogging for some time now but only recently discovered the groups and love it, although admittedly it is hard work, but so worth it! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:57 PM

      No pain, no gain (yes it is blooming hard work keeping up with them all!) X

  8. March 4, 2016 / 11:23 AM

    Thanks for these tips, I’ve pinned it for later and joined a few linkies you’ve mentioned

  9. March 4, 2016 / 12:44 PM

    Great tips! I think Twitter chats was the one that opened me up to a bigger audience. I wasn’t active on twitter until I happened to stumble on a chat. And thinking of StumbleUpon I’ve yet to understand it!! x

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:56 PM

      I am not active enough on Twitter at all, it’s one of the things that I need to work on but I can’t help it, I just prefer FB and IG ๐Ÿ™ X

  10. March 4, 2016 / 1:47 PM

    Really good tips and new bloggers, or those wanting to take the next step, will find this really helpful!xx #TheList

  11. March 4, 2016 / 1:55 PM

    Great ideas! I’m new and while i’ve been doing a lot of these, I haven’t yet done linkys. I may have to add them to my routine!

  12. March 4, 2016 / 2:08 PM

    Great post I need to do a few more of these I must admit I need to admit that I need to get more into grips with moz and I’ve not heard of alexa before so will need to look at that.
    joanna recently posted…H&M Boys Clothing WishlistMy Profile

      Eeek Moz is the bane of my life most months, the agony of waiting for the update! X

  13. March 4, 2016 / 2:30 PM

    Oh I wish I’d had this to read when I started my blog! I’ve been blogging for a little over a year now and am only just starting to take it seriously (and realising how much work is involved in doing so!). I’ve seen a few people mention stumbleupon recently, I think it’s time to check it out. You’ve given me a few more things to think about too, so thank you! #TheList

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:55 PM

      Ah thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ I would definitely recommend SU, very easy to use and very good for extra traffic! X

  14. March 4, 2016 / 4:54 PM

    Great advice, even if you’re not that new to blogging. It really is a learning curve and I think it can be quite overwhelming when you start out. I’ve been blogging for about 18 months now and still getting to grips with Pinterest and StumbleUpon.

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:54 PM

      It can definitely be overwhelming! You start out thinking that you’ll write a post and the masses will come but it’s just not like that, the promotion you need to do to get your stuff read is what takes up all of the time! X

  15. March 4, 2016 / 6:16 PM

    Great list and I’m really in awe of you having only been blogging for 8 months! I’ve just had my 1 year blogging birthday and I’m not doing a lot of what you’ve got on here! I’ve still clearly got a LOT to learn!! Thanks, I’ll be saving this page to refer to later. #TheList

    A blogging planner is a definite must for the beginner blogger! i was so lost without mine! I had no idea about TOTS etc and giveaways! I will bear that in mind for the next one, I love a good linky too, I run a food one on a thursday but there are so many great ones that inspire me to write posts so i can participate :p

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:52 PM

      Ooh I’ll have to check out your food linky, maybe I can join in! X

  17. March 4, 2016 / 7:40 PM

    I believe you, this is such a thorough post, I have bookmarked it for further reference as some tips I need to refer back to, time and again!xx

  18. March 4, 2016 / 9:20 PM

    These are such great tips. I have got into a bit of a routine with blogging and I find it hard to try anything new. I keep hearing things about StumbleUpon but haven’t yet given it a go! Thanks for the tips x

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:51 PM

      I am just starting to get in to a proper routine with it which I’m happy with, so much easier to automatically do things without having to think too much about it X

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:45 PM

      I’ve just started to do most of them quite often and I’ve seen a huge difference – hence what inspired the post! ๐Ÿ˜‰ X

  19. March 5, 2016 / 8:29 AM

    Some great tips here. I grew my blog organically and it took a good 18 months to start getting a good readership

    March 5, 2016 / 10:22 AM

    I agree with everything you’ve written apart from the running giveaways and competitions to increase traffic. I’ve never found those useful for bringing quality traffic to my blog or long-term readers.

    • March 5, 2016 / 6:44 PM

      Fair enough, what works for one won’t work for us all I suppose ๐Ÿ™‚ X

      I just know the basics, nothing fancy at all. Hoping somebody will do a ‘how-to’ post sometime soon so I can brush up X

    I’m useless to be fair, I know what I should be doing but I don’t do it. I really need to get myself into gear.
    I’ve just published a post now but haven’t bothered to schedule any tweets for it for tomorrow, I just assume that I’ll get on the computer at some point, which I probably won’t!

    • March 5, 2016 / 10:45 PM

      Oooh thank you *mwah*
      I am the same, scheduling is definitely my downfall.
      Your blog is doing so well I wouldn’t worry if I were you!!!!

    Thank you for these tips-I have literally just installed the WordPress plugin for tweeting out old posts. I had been looking to do this for a while but had been using various Twitter apps. Didn’t think of using a plugin on WordPress!

    Wow lots of amazing tips here. I have been blogging since May last year and I also agree with lots of things that you have mentioned here. Although I didn’t know about the Alexa Rank so thank for the this tip. I will look into it. I keep reading about SU a lot lately. I’ve signed up but I haven’t used it yet. No sure how to do it. Will have to check this too. I also have a linky called #KCACOLS that opens every saturday at 10 pm and closes on wednesday at midnight if you would like to try someday.I would love that! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for sharing this post. It is really helpful and I will bookmark it for the future. ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Thanks so much for this great information. I’ve only been blogging a few weeks and there is so much information that you can get quite bogged down in it all. This was really easy to understand and follow and I’ve bookmarked it so I can pop back and reread it!

      Hi Cherry,
      Thank you very much for stopping by and I’m really pleased that this post was helpful to you.
      It can all seem like too much can’t it? There’s so much they say you *should* be doing and so many things to do and remember but honestly, you’ll soon find out what works for you, what your focus is and get in to your own routine.
      Best of luck ๐Ÿ™‚
