I found followers through those memes like follow friday and book hop but mostly just browsing blogs and leaving comments on the ones I liked. Most people then come and visit me back and before long you have followers how come back regularly as long as you return the favour. My biggest peeve is taking the time to visit someone and comment and they don't even stop by and say hi or acknowledge your comment.
Wonderful advice. Went and checked our your blog. Am now a follower. DHM
The other ladies gave you some great advice which I am going to follow as well.
Was over at your site. Really liked it.
Am heading back now to follow. Should have done that when I was there. DUHHH? :-) Good luck with your blog.
link up as much as you can through here, Facebook, twitter - and first of course, join others`blogs, and do leave comments when you can
my blog is here http://deanjbaker.blogspot.com/
I am using Google Friend Connect to join all those who join my blog
and you can add me on Facebook if you wish https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000717835716
Followed you - and thanks for following
will mutually follow all who do the same
you can find my blog at http://deanjbaker.blogspot.com – and can add me on Facebook if you wish
and this is my new fan page
I would say active participation is the key. You really have to interact with fellow bloggers, really really interact, not just dropping a comment or two on their blogs then be-gone. I am not really enthusiastic about facebook pages, as it's really hard to earn followers there but when you do, you are assured they are solid followers. I hope I am making sense. lol :)
In the future, maybe you can have a book giveaway and require following your blog as part of the requirement to enter.
Remember, though, some people may be turned off when they see the warning about language and content. I don't have a problem with it, but some people might.
