From One Blogger To Another

As a "smaller blog" I always wonder to myself what attracts the most attendance daily. Who is reading and who isn't. What other bloggers schedules are like and what I am doing the same/different.

I have sponsored a few blogs since I stepped onto this platform and have a gained a few bloggy friends. I have found a trend over the last year where a few stick around commenting all of the time and then I won't hear from them again. They hang out for a little while and then I wonder where they have been or what they are up to.

I spend a great amount of time on my posts. I usually am brainstorming throughout the day what I will write about next, what kind of audience it will attract and a title (which seems to be the hardest decision of them all).

So here are some questions I have for you:

What were the first steps you took to becoming a "bigger blog"?
Who would you recommend sponsoring?
How did you go about learning the outs and ins of the blogosphere?
What do you know now that you wish you knew then?
Of the followers and readers you have, how many do you talk to often? Do they come back frequently or are they sporadic?
By the looks of my blog, what could I do differently?

If you offer support, help and guidance in growing blogs send me an email. I am searching for the person who will help me grow my blog, become a friend and listen to all of my questions as I am still learning.


  1. You should check out Helene in Between's post from yesterday- she did a blogger survey that answered a lot of questions. I am small myself so no good advice here :) Will be interested to hear what you find out!

  2. I love that you have asked this question. I would love to know what answers you receive!

    1. I am hoping for great feedback! I have been sharing the post throughout the day so we will see! Feel free to share the post as well! The more info we receive the better! XO

  3. I am with you! I would love to grow my blog as well, but kind of clueless on doing so :( Thank you for this post and I hope some of bigger blogs help us out :)

  4. I think about this all the time. I have several bloggy friends who comment all the time and then I have people who tell me they read but never comment that I know irl and then there are the other lurkers out there. I know I am guilty of being a lurker on some blogs as well :-) For me personally though, I will stop commenting and/or reading if I stop getting replies to comments or the other person stops reading/commenting on my blog on a regular basis. I feel that it goes two ways and if they're not going to make the effort, then why should I?


I appreciate and love everyone of your comments. They mean so much to me! Take the time to leave a comment and follow my blog. I will follow you back!
