Blogger’s Pit Stop #5 – Welcome
Blogger’s Pit Stop is open from 9pm ET(US Thur) 12md(AUS Friday) and Closes 3am Monday ET(US) 6 pm(AUS)
Please Read – FULL THROTTLE
When I started the Blogger’s Pit Stop, I wanted it to be a group where bloggers meet and support each other. A bit like a Facebook group with the added resources of a Linky, Q & A and the Pit Stop Crew.
Last week a lot of us enjoyed Janice’s post on Collaboration as a way for Bloggers to get ahead. She said that there are 152 million blogs, and that is an awesome amount of competition for blogging visitors. What Janice is suggesting is that we help each other out.
as we show off our posts in the Linky – make a bloggers’ day, stay and support two or three bloggers – later they will return the favor, when they see the #Pit Stop that you leave
-by sharing their posts on social media – use their on site social buttons to make it quick and easy
–follow them or like them
-leave a comment
Each time you do a supportive act, leave a #PitStop – then they will know to return an act of kindness back to you.
Honestly if after about a week, they do not follow or like you back or similar – feel free to return and unfollow them. It happens too often that follows and likes are not returned; to return them is just good manners.
So dear bloggers if you see a #PitStop on your social media or in your comments – it is a signal that you should return an act of kindness to the giver.
Just to make your hosts feel good, drop them a comment saying -“I did two” or “I did three” We just love to know that the Blogger’s Pit Stop group has helped someone in their blogging journey today.
(Thank you – Kathleen)
If you don’t need this extra interaction ZOOM along to the Linky.
We are bloggers who collectively have significant blogging experience. We don’t know it all! We are willing to step out and try new things, to think outside the box. If something does not work, we move on to more innovative solutions. All the way we are learning and going forward. Each week, you will find constructive posts that relate to blogging. We hope you will glean information to assist you to re-charge your blogging battery, or to fill up with motivation fuel, help to change a tire, find a higher gear, or to reset your GPS.
Bring your posts, they can be on any subject that is family friendly –
E-Books that you have written are OK. Affiliate links within content posts are OK. (Exceptions: No direct sales or shops. No giveaways without a content post.)
Dear bloggers, you are the reason we are here, and we are super excited to open up to you the benefits of joining the Blogger’s Pit Stop.
