Default Follow me please...

I am at a deadend on how to get followers

My blog went bust and I have done my best to get it up and running again and even figured out how to expand it...

Just take a look, follow me or give me ideas.

I love showing my creations but if it isn't worth anyone's interest.... I might give it up.

Your cards are lovely! Following your blog now.

I started my blog like you and was sad for a while that nobody was visiting me. But participating in challenges and visiting other blogs got me followers and some great friends too! Now I really enjoy blogging and visiting my blog friends.

Your blog is great! Don't be discouraged! Always link to your specific blog post for your cards when you upload them to your gallery here (don't just link to your main blog address - that makes people mad when they can't find your card ) - Splitcoast's gallery is a huge source of traffic!

I love your header - did you make it?

Thank you for your suggestions they were very helpful and I will certainly use them.

And, yes, I did make the blog header with MDS.

Thanks again.

I feel the same way about my blog. It's a lot of work and then when you see that nobody is following or viewing... it's discouraging. I need to participate in more challenges and get my projects on there.
Someone mentioned that there are so many blogs out there. This is very true. I know that I follow quite a few and some days I just skip and go to my top 5 or top 10.

Maybe making your blog link Clickable!

That might help.

Just s suggestion but to get more traffic and so google and other searches can find you the title of the post helps and adding tags to all your posts as many as you can fit such as cards,craft,themes etc and updating loads at the begining also helps....

Hiya! I agree with Jean... You need to make your blog address "linkable" in your signature. To do that, simply insert your web address to the following text (instead of studio-sara.com): wwwDOTstudio-saraDOTcom. It would read: wwwDOTyappinboutstampinDOTblogspotDOTcom . I spelled out "dot" because I'm not sure if the text would show up or the link (I know just enough about HTML to get myself in trouble sometimes).

I hope that's helpful! I've just opened your link, but it's time to shuttle the peeps to school, so I'll look at it later this AM. Good luck!

Warmly,

Oh, gosh, I've bungled it. Your text should read http://immediately followed by your ...w.) and end in. No spaces. I thought spelling out DOT would help, but now you know what I mean about being a danger to all with regard to HTML...

Mortified, but yours,

I agree with the things others have said here. I found that people started visiting my blog only after I'd gone out and participated in challenges, commented on other blogs, followed other blogs etc. I think putting in links to your favourite blogs also helps. Sometimes people reciprocate and put a link to your blog in theirs too.

Personally, I'm a pictures person. If I find a blog with lovely big, clear, eye-catching pictures, I put it in my reader and visit it again and again. I think it is important to label your pictures with good key words. Then they seem to appear in the right Google image searches...which then leads people to your blog. I seem to get a lot of hits through Google image searches.

Getting comments is another story all together. Not sure what the secret to success is there. I know that I have been having trouble commenting on lots of blogs for some time now. I sometimes have problems opening the comment form, and those new captchas are down right annoying, and sometimes plain impossible for a mere human to get right.

Best wishes,

Don't be discouraged! I know how you feel, but it takes time and it helps if you participate in challenges and after awhile you will get to know other blogger friends.

I'm following you now too

Default I am followers of you all

Who have responded to me, if I can get it to work.

The last response was easy to follow but some the others I don't seem to get my following to take.

So, I just signed up for (free) Bloglovin and I can add any blog I want to follow and get daily emails about posts notifications from the blogs I follow... it is so cool

I still have many more blogsd to add but I think is a great tool!

I was in a couple of blog groups but still rarely got visits from them. Now I am in one but it's a very quiet group. So I just started following and commenting on a lot of blogs and I get more visits now. I put a bunch in my google reader and a few times a day, I go through and just leave lots of comments. It looks like yours is one of the ones I've been following.

Sam, here's a dumb question... When you say "labels," do you mean the ones we add to our posts before we publish them (mine are on the right side of my screen) or is there a way to add labels the photo itself (aside from using keywords in its title)? Your response of May 22 really got me thinking...

Thanks!

Warmly,

Here is a link to mine: www.stampingartstudio.com

I'm new to blogging and would love any feedback. I know exactly how you feel.. its hard to put yourself out there and not know if anyone is looking. I think it takes time. At least I keep telling myself that.

Hi Sara,

Sorry, I have only just seen this message.

When I said label, I mean't the name you give your actual image/images. Try and name the jpeg as accurately as possible, with words people might use in a Google/Yahoo search. Instead of saying BensParty.jpg...call it punch art giraffe.jpg or gatefold.jpg...words that people use to google, and accurately describe the card/technique, rather than miscellaneous words that people don't/won't be looking for...IYKWIM?

The same applies to the post titles, and the labels at the bottom of the post and words you use in a post. If you are fond of punch art (for example), make sure you accurately label everything in your post (the post itself, the title and the image) with the words punch art, and you will eventually find that people find your blog when they google punch art.

HTH,
Sam.

I'm just seeing this thread, but that's great advice! I learned the hard way how to get Google and other search engine traffic. For example, I made a card using the cherries on the Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge. I titled the post, "Cherry Notecard". Then a few months later, I used the strawberry on a notecard and I called it, "Strawberry Card Using Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge." I had no idea that the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge is highly searched in Google. Now I get lots of hits.

If you know how to look at your stats, see if Google is picking up any of your posts. Then you will have a better idea of how to title them.

It would be great to have a separate forum where people COULD post their giveaways and candy. That way people who want to see it can go see it, and it wouldn't clog up the regular forums. I realize it would be another job for the mods though, and I moderate a shopping board so I understand that might be too much to mess with. But it would be awesome.

Well our promotional policy does two things - it keeps users from seeing our forums filled with advertising posts instead of stamping content - and it protects our advertisers who have invested in the site, which in turn keeps all these great resources free for all users.

So a forum filled with promotional posts would not be any less productive and healthy than randomly scattered promotional posts

I guess to me, there's a huge huge difference between a business and a blog that's just trying to get viewers. I don't understand how a business would feel threatened by that. The vast majority of blogs I visit aren't selling anything. And blog creators are what fuel this site-without them there wouldn't be anyone to see the ads at all.

And I don't see how "healthy" has anything at all to do with it.

btw I'd forgotten about ads because I have all ads blocked. And it's because of the ads at this site that I originally added adblock to my browsers-so many had sound, popups, moving images, etc that I couldn't stand it anymore.

Free stamps are typically promotion for a stamp company


"healthy" as in a healthy site that's good for the community and for the people who support it and keep it free for users.
