1 Insanely Powerful Blog You Need to Follow

By: | June 2, 2015 | Tags: , , , ,

2019 Update:

For the time being, the SITS Girls stopped their weekly blog party. It is on hold indefinitely.

Increase blog traffic. Follow the SITSGirls

The SITSGirls are helpful.

Has the world stopped spinning on its axis?

Doesn’t Janice know we have minds of our own?

She has never recommended blogs for us to follow.  Is she going to start now?

Uh… yes.  If you want to be a successful blogger.

When the SitsGirls was founded in  2008, its mission was to help bloggers “find a tribe and grow an audience.”

They named their blog The Secret is in the Sauce, hence the acronym SITS.  Today the blog is so big, it is run by a company called “Sway.”

SITS Girls can help your #blog

Sway is the corporation that runs the SITSGirls Blog.

Five Practical Reasons You Should Follow the SITSGirls Blog

1. You get blog traffic by following the SITSGirls.

I have had as many as 30 people referred to my blog from SITS in a given day, and that’s just one day.  Multiplied by many days, the traffic really adds up.

Guests at their linky party are told to visit three other bloggers and leave thoughtful comments on their posts.

In addition, each week the SITSGirls features four bloggers, and they tell their readers to visit those bloggers.

SITSGirls help increase #blog traffic.

Featured bloggers can get traffic from the massive SITSGirls community.

By looking at the screenshot, you can tell that I was one of the four featured bloggers on Saturday, May 23.

Here is a reaction from one of the featured bloggers on May 30:

I don’t think I’ve ever been the featured blogger before. I got a ton of comments today and a couple of new followers.

2. They help their bloggers.

They give bloggers exposure on Twitter.  Every Saturday at 10:00 am Eastern time they have a Twitter party.

If you would like to attend the party, follow these directions: Type a tweet containing a link to a post.  Include either hashtag–#SITSsharefest or #SITSblogging.  Everyone who goes to the big Twitter party by typing in those hashtags will see your link.

I preschedule my Tweets using Hootsuite.  I go to bed Friday night, I schedule my Tweet so I don’t have to get up at 7:00 am California time (I like to sleep in on the weekends) with those hashtags.  When I awake, I see my link has already been retweeted by those who went to their Twitter party.

Also, they help their bloggers on Pinterest.  With over 80 boards, bloggers can find articles with information for all their blogging needs.  Photography, DIY (Do It Yourself), Blogging 101, and Social Media are just four of their boards.

More than 47,000 fans follow their Pinterest boards.  By following the boards, you will get tips on photography, social media, and other aspects of blogging.

In addition, they hold conferences.  At Bloggy Boot Camp they teach their bloggers skills and help them forge connections with other bloggers.

3. Their resources are awesome.  Their blog offers tips for increasing traffic, productivity, and other aspects of blogging.

Bloggers can find blogging resources by following the SITS Girls

SITS offer bloggers resources.

Their site is a plethora of resources, a veritable goldmine.  As you can see, a dropdown menu appears full of articles for all your blogging needs.

4. You can make money by following SITS.  They offer paid sponsorships and other opportunities.

5. Other bloggers like them.

If the expression “There is safety in numbers” holds true, then it is certainly a great idea for you to follow the SITSGirls blog.  Their network contains 75,000 members.

Their linky party has been called the biggest on the planet.

Here is a testimonial from one of their followers:

I have been a SITS member since 2008, and I have visited the site 3 to 5 times a week pretty much every week since then. It’s literally my very favorite site, and they’ve been my biggest supporters in my blogging journey. I’ve been to THREE of their live Bloggy Boot camps, and I always get a ton of information and connections from each conference. Tiffany and Fran are just awesome (and so pretty!). I love that they have devoted their entire blogging career to helping other bloggers and by doing so, they’ve made it into one of the biggest powerhouse sites in the blogosphere!

Readers, what are your experiences with the SITSGirls?  Which of their resources would you recommend?  I look forward to your views.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Lidy,
      Great to hear from you! Thanks for writing. If you go to their linky party, try to be in the first 20 which could mean posting at midnight as Friday turns to Saturday, but I feel it is worth the traffic. They always add #visiting from Sits which is why I put that in my graphic.

    I’ve been following SITS Girls for a few months, very resourceful. I recently took part in the Surface Twitter party. Some great resources here!

    • Janice Wald

      No! I put it on their Linky party, and they chose to feature it the following Saturday! I’m so glad My tips have been helpful!

      • mini2z

        Cool so glad I found you, still don’t know what exactly my blog is totally about. There are reasons that I can’t write all that I want right now.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Kristen,
          I am enjoying having your readership, so back at you! When I read you are not sure what your blog is about, I went and visited your site. Could it be self-improvement? Health would fall under self-improvement.
          When I was looking for a theme, I was curious about something: Why are they locking bridges in Paris?
          Thanks for answering and for the kind words about my blog.
          Janice

          • mini2z

            the locks on the pairs bridges are “locks of “love” they put their names on them and lock them on the bridge and toss the keys in the river Seine – my daughter did one and to have been on those glittering golden lock bridges was really special.

            Thanks for the idea

            I’m thinking Journey with mini2z

    I’ve been a member since 2010 and have gone to 2 Bloggy Boot Camps. As I told Tiffany at the last boot camp, I am not a mommy blogger and found there were less useful sponsors and info for women my age. I love them both and still follow, but I’ve found the Women of Midlife are a better resource and support, for me than SITs. It’s all about finding your tribe, and being willing to change as needed.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi!
      Thank you for writing me. Thank you for offering a different perspective. I, too, am a member of the Women of Midlife. I am familiar with their hashtag #mlblvd on Twitter, but I was not aware of their potential as a resource. May I ask why? It could be potential for a new blog post for me. Thank you, and thank you for writing me. I believe you are new to my site. If I am correct, welcome!
      Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hey Judith!
      Thank you so much for the reblog! I am so flattered!

    Great info as usual Janice, thank you for being so generous to share this with all of us! Blessings!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi!
      Thank you so much for writing me, and sending me all these compliments! It means a great deal, and so do you being a regular visitor to my site. Thank you!
      Janice

  7. Janice Wald

    Do I link a post with their hashtag or just type the hashtag? Thanks for appraising me.

    • Frugal Fab Mommy

      Just respond to the question they tweet and include #TrulyRadiantFinish

  8. Jody

    Thanks for posting this! As a new blogger I have found so much helpful information on the SITS girls website. I definitely need to check out the twitter party!

  9. Susan F_mt (

    What an awesome way to start a Saturday! I read the first paragraph of your post and thought – “Yay me, at least I’ve done this right!” I found SITS early, and I totally agree that it is a “must follow” for every blogger. I have learned so much from it!

    Really figuring out Twitter and Hootsuit has been on my to-do list, but has never made it to the top until now. I never even knew tweets could be prescheduled for a Twitter party. Brilliant – thank you!

    Janice, your blog is also on my list of “blogs everyone should follow.” Your articles are always a wealth of helpful information!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      I was short on time when I read your wonderful comment, so I wrote a brief but grateful reply. I really did want to thank you for all the kind words.
      Janice

  10. Melissa (Wading Through Motherhood)

    I love the Sits Girls. In fact, I’m visiting you from the #ShareFest. That is a great idea about scheduling your tweets. I’m in California too and if I can I like to sleep in until 8:00.

    • Janice Wald

      Hey Melissa!
      Thanks for picking my link to click and writing me. I was hoping putting a SITS girls post on the SITS girls site might interest people =).
      One of my favorite parts of blogging is when I accidently help people. I mentioned in passing about scheduling my Tweets, and you and at least one other wrote they never knew that was possible. Click my Hootsuite link that I embedded in the post, and it will explain how.
      As I’m sure you know, blogging is so rewarding. Helping others is one of the many reasons why. Thanks for writing.
      Pleased to meet you.
      Janice

  11. Heather

    I agree.I love the linky and all their posts are so informative. I have learnt a lot.

    • Janice Wald

      Hey Heather,
      Thanks so much for the kind words about my post. I’m glad you found it informative.

    If I weren’t already a part of SITS, I’d be heading there in a heartbeat. Great pitch. 😉

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Keisha,
      I saw your glowing comment the other day. So sorry I didn’t get a chance to thank you until now. I read your comment to my husband I was so flattered.
      Thank you for your visits to my site as well.
