1 important aspect of building a successful blog is regularly meeting and befriending new bloggers.
My chief blogging mistake for years was not reaching out of comfortable circles persistently. I’d spend 1-2 days monthly commenting on new blogs but sprinted back into my comfortable friend network for the remainder of the month. Not good. You cannot grow your blog significantly if you continually but a lid on your friend network.
Success finds leveraging bloggers. Or bloggers who meet a high volume of new folks daily while strengthening old bonds.
Success grew for me – and will grow for you too – by meeting and befriending new bloggers daily. You will feel really good:
- attracting new subscribers
- drawing in new customers
- boosting eBook sales from new readers
- attracting new clients
by meeting a steady volume of new bloggers daily.

The Wrap Up
These are only 6 spots for finding new bloggers to meet and greet daily. Hands down, meeting 10, 50, or even hundreds of bloggers daily is no issue if you generously spend hours helping folks and being incredibly engaging on these networks.
I meet quite a few folks through each channel but also know things to get uncomfortable at times. If you feel afraid to reach out and be social or if you fear wasting your time on these networks just hug those fears and release the energies. Connected, successful, happy bloggers do not cower to these fears. Top pros feel the fears, release the fears and make genuine impacts on an increasing number of bloggers daily.
