First, let me say an official WELCOME, FRIENDS to all of the new followers from these past two weeks! I love getting to know your blogs and I hope you are getting to know mine as well.
Every now and then I do a technical question day, because I am still a newbie to the blogosphere (I will be 6 months old on Sunday), and not only is the learning curve fast and sharp, it also changes quickly. Sometimes this technically challenged girl needs a little HELP. Or Helwp, as Youngest would say.
Here is my question for you - how do you promote your blogs? What works, what doesn't? There are so many options and not enough time for me to do them all - I'd love to hear from as many of you as possible about your favorite way.
I see Top Mommy Blogs, Panel of Moms, Technorati, Alltop, Digg, Stumble, just to name a few. And like all of us, I have a certain amount of time I get to spend blogging every day. When it comes to promoting and "getting it out there," I want to use my time wisely so that I can do what I like to do - work on content and read your delicious blogs.
And what are the rules about me soliciting others to sponsor me, or things like that? I know that if I try something given to me by a company, I need to disclose, and that giveaways need to be disclosed, but I'm talking about the opposite. Like - I ask a place to display a button or I ask a place to have me as one of their sponsors - rules to that part? Or I ask a website to provide a link to my blog? Rule? Anyone? SEC? Bueller?
And remember all week - if YOU become my 100th follower - you get your button on my blog. If you're without a blog, your prize will be a post about you! If you want. Unless you like privacy. Which I obviously don't anymore.
Much love. Can't wait to hear your advice.
