Ever have one of those moments when you’re thinking, “Why the hell didn’t I think of that before?” And it turns out that idea is incredibly simple and obvious? I did as I read this post by Jason of HarsH ReaLiTy.
In this post, he talks about refreshing your network and keeping in touch with your followers, especially the ones who leave comments on your blog. Simply go to your comments sections and click on the names of the commenters, visit and read their blogs. And most importantly, leave a comment. They will appreciate it and are more likely to return to your blog.
But then it hit me. Why not take it a step further? The people who comment on your followers’ blogs probably have similar blogs. Visit those blogs and follow them if you like what you see. Make sure to leave comments! Not only will you maintain your network and keep in touch with your readers, but you’ll grow your network. You’ll gain new readers.
And seriously, go to HarsH ReaLiTy and follow that blog. Jason gives some of the best blogging advice. He’s helped many people improve their blogs and blogging habits, including mine.
Can you guess what I’m doing tonight?
