How to Get New Blog Followers Immediately

Are you interested in getting new blog followers?

I thought so.

blog followersThey say “Necessity is the Mother of Invention.” 

In the year that I’ve been blogging, I notice bloggers falling into two groups–the haves and the have nots.  In my opinion, bloggers seem to have a lot of blog followers or they don’t.

I read a blog post recently called “Follow for Follow” (It appeared on the Harsh Reality blog.)  Opinionated Man, the writer of the blog,  seems to have tens of thousands of followers.  He has been called a “Power-blogger”.  To my disappointment, when he asked if they would “follow back,” the hundreds of comments OM got added up to “no”, not the answer I wanted to hear.  I’d be grateful for the “follow back”.  I’ve run across several bloggers that I know would be too.

Therefore, I am starting this page for bloggers, newcomers or otherwise, that would like to get more followers. 

All you have to do is click “Comment” and leave your link.  So that you don’t have to keep checking back, click “Notify Me of New Comments,” so that you will know when new people post their links here.

However, there is a stipulation.  We are all on the honor system.  If someone follows you as a result of leaving a link to your blog here, please follow them back. 

My next disclaimer: I am not responsible if people break their word to you and don’t follow you back.  I am trying to help new bloggers.  Please don’t get mad at me.  Simply unsubscribe from their blog. 

How long should you wait?  That’s up to you. I heard a rumor that if someone doesn’t follow you back in three days on Twitter, it is safe to say they are not going to.

I would like this Follow to Follow Directory to be my way of thanking my blog followers.  Please follow my blog and add your link to a comment box, and I will have it on this Master List by the weekend. If I forgot any links, please let me know!  Thank you!

How can you get new blog subscribers?

Join the Mostly Blogging Follow to Follow Directory.

  1. Janice Wald

    I will start the “Follow for Follow” link list. The link to my blog is mycurrentnewsblog.com. Thank you for visiting and good luck with your blogging!
    Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Mary,
      Sorry. On Twitter I suggested you put your link here without realizing you already had. Be sure to click “Notify Me of New Comments” so you know who else comes here.
      Janice

      • knottymarie

        Sorry you need to find another person to nominate. The whole purpose is to help out new bloggers. So.. nope. You can’t nominate me back. 😉

    • Janice Wald

      Hi again Mary, Are you familiar with the Lynky called We Are That Family? I frequently get traffic from their site, but their Linky seems closed. Do they have it daily? Weekly? I hate to waste time repeatedly checking back, but as I said I am still getting traffic from them! Do you know? Does Carol? Thanks.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Mary,
      I had a thought. What if we each brought five bloggers struggling to find readership to this page? We would each increase our traffic tremendously. Do you know any new bloggers? Please send them this link. http://mycurrentnewsblog.com/how-to-get-new-blog-followers/ Thanks. I am very excited about this idea. I hope you are too.
      By the way, thanks for all the support you give me. I know are trying to help me gain readership on Pinterest and Twitter. I do appreciate it.
      Janice

      • knottymarie

        Hey Janice.. pop on over to facebook for a minute.. I sent you a message there.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Melodi,
      Welcome! I subscribed to your blog, but it says I subscribed using RSS feed; I hope that’s correct.
      May I ask how you found me? Since I’m new, I’m still trying to figure out how I’m getting traffic. Thanks for following my blog and joining us on this page! There are some great people here already.
      Janice

      • Janice Wald

        Hi,
        I went to Melodi’s site to try and remember how I subscribed yesterday. She has two links. If you click the link she said to click, you have to make a choice how you want to get her blog like RSS feed. That’s what I picked. If you click the link in the parentheses, you just type in her Email address where it instructs. However, I’m aware that’s not what she told us to do.
        I don’t know if this helps. I did tell her we were confused.
        Janice

  2. Precious Chiduku

    My blog it is more of an inspirational type of blog, to paste smiles on readers’ faces. There is too much negativity and I feel it is a beautiful thing to know that not all of us with bring others down. Thank you Janice for this. It is wonderful and a great way to learn tips from other bloggers.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Precious, thanks for writing. If you follow us, and leave the link to your website, we can follow you back. Our links to our blogs are in our comments. I did click on your site; it’s beautiful.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Precious,
      I had a thought. What if we each brought five bloggers struggling to find readership to this page? We would each increase our traffic tremendously. Do you know any new bloggers? Please send them this link. http://mycurrentnewsblog.com/how-to-get-new-blog-followers/ Thanks. I am very excited about this idea. I hope you are too.
      I thought maybe the people you nominated for the Liebster Award could join us here. It would be win win for everyone. Please send them the link to this page. Thank you so much!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Precious,
      I just followed your blog. However, I do NOT see you anywhere on my list of followers. Can you please try and follow my blog again? You will get a confirmation, and I will get a notification.
      I don’t know about anybody else here, but I didn’t get the notice that you followed. Can you please try again? If you have trouble, write here and let me know. Thanks, Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      I go to your site everyday looking to link my post. I didn’t realize this was you. Wonder why you’re coming in as anonymous. Anyway, I had an idea:

  3. Melodi Steinberg

    is there any way to edit our comments here? I’m trying to change mine but I do not see how to do it?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Melodi,
      I am not aware how to edit a comment on someone else’s blog. I even Googled it needing the information myself, and didn’t come up with anything. Why don’t you post another, follow up, comment to give clarification?
      Janice

      • Janice Wald

        Hi
        Weren’t you the featured blogger on the Facebook blogging group the other day? I can’t even imagine how much traffic you must have got. Did you get a lot of “follows” from it that day? How did they choose you to be the featured blogger? I would love to be the featured blogger!
        Thanks,
        Janice

      • Carrie Ann Tripp

        Janice,

        I can’t find a reply button to your comment, but I think I was featured 3 times last month. The last one did generate a lot of page views and comments. The first time not much at all. I believe she chooses from founding and premium members of the website, but I could be totally wrong. I joined at the premium rate just as an experiment. I had my first ever 20,000 page view month and didn’t write the required 30 posts due to family life.Does that help at all?

        I really like the feedback and diversity of the group.

        Carrie

        • Janice Wald

          Hi,
          I wrote you under a different comment asking for the #1 way to increase blog traffic in your opinion. Thanks.

  4. Garry Rackley

    For those of you having a hard time subscribing to someones blog don’t feel bad. There are many blog vehicles (WordPress and Blogger for example) and each one handles subscriptions differently. Throw in the fact that each blogger can customize how subscribers and comments are handled. Then remember that 3rd party plugins are available to further muddy the water. There are usually ways to subscribe the way the blogger intended unless the blogger left that part out. The ones I have seen so far I have been able to subscribe to, though I’m not TOTALLY sure if the target blog can see it.

    The good news that even if you can’t figure out how to subscribe the way the blogger wants us to, we can still subscribe to the blog using our native blog software (the one that you blog on) or you can use a 3rd party system like Feedly.(this is what I use even if the target blog has another way of doing it, I just do both) The problem is that though you are subscribed to a blog without using their method the person you are following has no idea unless you tell them. I guess this is where the honor system Janice talked about comes in.

    These problems will probably always exist because it is not a unified system like Facebook. On the bright side it does give us many options we would not otherwise have is it was a closed system. I hope I didn’t further confuse it. I hope Janice reads over it good before she lets it through.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Gary,
      Thank you so much for trying to explain the discrepancies to all of us. I did not consider the variations in how we receive blogs. However, the “honor” system works for me! I hope it does for everyone else too!

  5. Anonymous

    Does anyone see me on their followers? I just want to see if am just having a problem with Janice’s Blog or everyone. Following that point, I still have zero followers on mine… am starting to think I am doing something wrong. Please help me

    • batteredhope

      You are coming up as Anonymous so I can’t help you unless you sign in with a name and a blog address

    • Janice Wald

      Hi, Is this Precious? No, I still do not see you on my list. Garry, do you see Precious? I know you also followed her blog as well. Garry is more tech. savvy than I am and may know where I should check.
      Janice

  6. batteredhope

    This ‘exercise’ has confirmed something that is one of the rules of blogging. I wrote a post this month on 6 ways to turn a blogger off which is where I met Janice and so glad I did, as I am thoroughly enjoying her posts. My point is, if we want to have people follow our blogs than we need to make it easy. It should not take more than a minute to accomplish. If I, or any reader, has to spend five minutes or more trying to figure out how to accomplish that, they will probably not return. Your reader should not have to jump through hoops to follow you. Also, another good rule of thumb is to be sure your SHARE and your FOLLOW buttons for all your social media connections is obvious and easy to click. Of course, this only applies if you want followers 🙂 Just sayin’

    • Janice Wald

      Thank you Carol. As you and I discussed recently, the “follow” button is hard to find on mine. I am meeting with a woman Tuesday who may be able to help me with that. We will see. I don’t think my template supports widgets on the side and I already have “follow” I think on the top and bottom. I’ll let you know.
      Janice

    • TheLastWord

      Aha! I see so many bloggers complaining about lack of visitors (Notice they don’t talk about commenters, just visitors) and then you go to their blog and what happens?

      1. You have to enter captchas. Why? Someone want’s to have a conversation with you and what you say is “Here fill out the form and submit it and we’ll get our intake department to process it. You’ll hear from us in 2-3 business days”. I mean the reader is already there, money in hand and you turn away a buyer, if I’m allowed to mix metaphors.
      2. You can’t use your blog handle but are forced to use Google+,or Disqus or some other format. I want to have a conversation and would like to use my already existing id. Why force me to register for Google+ and Disqus or whatever JUST to leave you a comment? You’re not that great!
      3. You finally manage to leave a comment. A week later they have not responded in anyway to your comment. I’ll comment a couple of times and if I find that all you want to do is complain but not react to the visitors who actually did comment, I won’t be back.

      Also: people want visitors, but don’t talk about commenters. I want to have conversations, mutual back and forth, exchanges.

      I actually started a similar thing on my blog called The Little Red Blog…. pun fully intended.

      • Janice Wald

        Hi,
        1.Ouch! I have been so great about responding. Three days go by, an anomaly for me, I promise, and you call me on it. Oh no. Another chance perhaps? My tag line says an analytical exchange of ideas is EXACTLY what I want. I use to have those types of dialogues with my daughters. When they went off to college, I thought, hey, there’s lots of people out there I could connect with through blogging. I could make excuses why I didn’t respond sooner, but they are irrelevant. Try me again. Other bloggers, I can’t speak for.
        I agree with your comments. The difference in blogging platforms, specifically WordPress vs. Blogger makes it more difficult.
        I liked your comment about the Republicans. Once again, thank you for writing. I hope you’ll overlook (if not forgive) my delay, and write again.
        Janice

        • TheLastWord

          I wasn’t calling you out, because at the time I wrote it I didn’t know you were going to over the threshhold. 🙂

          No, I have seen many bloggers who NEVER go back to check comments on their blog and then complain no on reads them. I called one guy on it and he admitted he never went back to check….

          Call me crazy and old-fashioned, but, really, that does not make sense.

          A lot of bloggers are really just advertising plaftorms, low on content, high on ads. Some write quite well about products, some are little more than the people you see on street corners dressed in chicken suits, or sandwich boards. I don’t call them bloggers, they are billboards.

          • Janice Wald

            Notice I made writing you back before going to sleep a priority. I really did think you were calling me out before! 🙂
            I agree, it doesn’t make sense. Thanks again for writing.

          • Janice Wald

            Hi,
            I wanted you to know two things.
            1. I am following you back via WordPress.
            2. I linked the blog you sent me to StumbleUpon. I hope it gets you some traffic.

          • Janice Wald

            PS My reaction to the blog you sent was that I agreed with it. I was actually glad to read it since it agreed with my hope for the future of our country.
            Also, I have also had your experience. I comment on blogs and people don’t respond to me. I don’t get it either.

          • Janice Wald

            How nice of you. You are a true loyal follower.

          • TheLastWord

            Sorry – I had my 30th anniversary ( post on my blog) plus it was the weekend I go home on Friday and then fly back to work on Monday. Also since this is my last 2 weeks here in Saskatoon, things have gotten a little busy tying up all the loose balls of wool…

            Long winded excuse / reason for not getting back to you. I don’t know too many bloggers who need readers. It seems almost everyone I know I has more readers than I do. I notice that this one post of yours already has close to 190 comments. The most I’ve ever got on a post is around 23 or so….. Clearly, my blog is A Little Red Blog 🙂

            I tend not to go into the blind follow game, preferring instead to find bloggers I can interact with, as we seem to be doing here. In fact, some of the bloggers I follow seem to be clogging up my reader with daily posts…. that level of frequency is beyond my comprehension. There’s at least one who has 3-4 posts each day! Mind boggling – I’ll have to cut him loose, I’m afraid.

            I would like to visit some of the other bloggers who have commented on your post and see which ones I can follow. By the end of next week I should have some free time again, before I go away in Jan for 3 weeks.

  7. Precious Chiduku

    Ok… thank you very much for being patient with me. Janice, please check to see if am following you. I think I am now reflecting in your subscribers. And everyone else please give me some feedback if I am following you. I really do want to 😀

    • Janice Wald

      Precious, thank you so much for your patience. As Carol said, a lot of people wouldn’t put up with this.
      Janice

      • Janice Wald

        Hi Precious,
        Great news! Yes, you are on my list of blog followers. Thank you for the follow and your patience, once again.
        When I clicked “follow”, it said it went to your RSS feed. Is that the norm? Garry?

    • Garry Rackley

      Janice, when you follow by RSS feed are you able to see that person as a subscriber to your blog? Just wondering.

      • Janice Wald

        I don’t know. (Sorry Garry, I’m still new and not tech savvy.) Precious IS on my subscriber list now. It does not give me the option to follow her back, so I assume she knows I’m following her. However, next to other people’s names, “Follow” is checked off if I’m following them or it says “+Follow” next to the names of my followers I’m not following back. Next to Precious’s name it doesn’t say anything.
        Happy Saturday
        Janice

      • Garry Rackley

        Janice we may want to try this: There are 2 major blogs, WordPress and Blogger (Blogspot in address). If you are on WordPress and the person you want to follow is on WordPress subscribe by WordPress. If you are on Blogger and the person you are trying to follow is on Blogger, choose the google+ method (there is more than one unfortunately) If it is a cross follow (WordPress to Blogspot or vice versa) subscribe by email. I’m not sure that will make a difference but it is worth a try. This was a great idea Janice. There are some very good blogs on this page!

        • Janice Wald

          Sorry Garry, I just read this. What if they don’t offer Google Plus? One Blogger user only offered Netvibes, My Yahoo, or Atom. Then, what do I pick?
          Janice

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Gary,
          Thanks for being our “tech support”. What, I feel, has been a successful experience for many of us has succeeded in very large part to your tech. help. However, can you please explain, simply, for me, (I am so not tech. savvy) how I follow people on Blogger? It was one reason I switched to WordPress. Some Blogger users only have Netvibes, My Yahoo, or Atom. Other users have Yahoo, Google, Bloglines. Which do I pick? Thanks,
          Janice

        • Janice Wald

          Atom may have worked, but what do I do if they don’t offer that on Blogger?

  8. Precious Chiduku

    Ok, I have seen two subscribers on that RSS feed, but none are showing on my stats.. But am making progress. Please Garry help

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Carrie,
      I had a thought. What if we each brought five bloggers struggling to find readership to this page? We would each increase our traffic tremendously. Do you know any new bloggers? Please send them this link. http://mycurrentnewsblog.com/how-to-get-new-blog-followers/ Thanks. I am very excited about this idea. I hope you are too.
      By the way, I’d written you asking for increasing traffic ideas other than buying a premium membership at Ultra Blog, but I put it on someone else’s comment.
      I’d be grateful for other ideas to try. Thank you

  9. batteredhope

    There you are Carrie!! I have lost contact with you. Glad to reconnect and followed you on all platforms now!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      Welcome to our Follow for Follow group! You will find everyone here is very nice, and we all have the same connection–we are looking for more blog followers. Thank you for following mine. I went to your blog, and I was given two choices, follow by WordPress or Follow by Email. I clicked Follow by WordPress. Is that the same? Garry? At any rate, I believe I followed you back.
      Janice

  10. batteredhope

    I have just checked my followers and not one of you is on my list. Weird. Have no idea why as there are two follow buttons and also a ‘follow this blog by email’ — would you be so kind to follow me (again) — my blog is at http://batteredhope.blogspot.com

    I checked for Janice, Cavelle, Garry, Knottymarie, Carrie, Precious, Melodi, Akinthari

    THANK YOU

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Carol,
      I have those choices as well. You were right, I checked and you were not listed as someone I follow. I just clicked “follow”. Can you please confirm I am following you now? Thanks,
      Janice

    • Carrie Ann Tripp

      Ok, when I tried again it said I was already following this blog. When I checked my e-mail I had your post from 11/29/14 in my inbox. Can you see me at all?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Carol,
      Can you please check again. I put in my Email (after commenting on your post–not generic WordPress site). First it said I was subscribed using RSS Feeder, but then when I went into my Email, it said I was subscribed using my Email, and I’d receive Battered Hope in my inbox. Please confirm I’m on your list of followers now. Thanks.

      Hi Suzi!
      Welcome to our Follow for Follow group! You will “meet” wonderful people here from as far away as Indonesia.I tried following your blog, but I am confused about how to follow people on Blogger. I did what Garry did and picked Atom. I hope you got the notification. Could you please follow me back? Mycurrentnewsblog.com. Thank you!
      Janice

  11. Carol Graham

    Suzy T. Nice to see you here. Do you have a follow button on your site? I couldn’t find it

  12. Garry Rackley

    Welcome Celeste Glass!! Subscribed via email and friend connect. Added to G+ circles. Shared blog with G+ followers.

  13. knottymarie

    You can’t expect to have followers if you don’t offer a way to get followers. Plain and simple. An easy fix that works for all platforms is bloglovin. Join bloglovin.com connect your blog to it (once connected, your posts automatically post there). And place their button on your sidebar or somewhere easy to find. Hope this makes sense.

    • Carol Graham

      Personally I don’t like bloglovin (even though I have it) You have to look for each individual post you want to read. I love following by email because they come directly to my inbox individually and I can choose what to read and when. I agree wholeheartedly with you knottymarie and this has been a good lesson to be sure our blogs are easy to follow with follow buttons evident

      • Janice Wald

        Hi Carol,
        I never told you what play we were seeing did I? If I did forgive me. We saw “Kinky Boots.” It was amazing. Have you heard of it? I thought of blogging about it but my husband doesn’t want me to start doing too many reviews, and I just reviewed “Gone Girl.” Something about not getting pigeon holed as one “type.” Great play. It won the Tony for best musical.

  14. Garry Rackley

    I think that is a good alternative but correct me if I’m wrong, that helps on your side but if the other person doesn’t have bloglovin then they don’t “see” that you have subscribed. Am I misunderstanding that part?

  15. knottymarie

    bloglovin does send you a notification when you have new followers. AND, you are able to see who those followers are from the bloglovin website as well. I just know that I had plenty of non-bloggers complain when they tried to ‘follow’ my blog via google because they had trouble signing in to google. Bloglovin was an easy remedy,

    • batteredhope

      Would love to follow you — can’t find the follow button on your site +Jana

      • Garry Rackley

        Batteredhope if you look at the blog from a mobile device you may have to select use desktop view. Otherwise part of the page won’t show up.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jana,
      I wrote you on your blog that I followed you via RSS feed (Atom). You should be able to follow my blog via Email. By the way, thanks for the nice comments on my Follow for Follow idea. Someone indicated they couldn’t find the “Follow” place to put in Email. Should be on the very bottom. If you have trouble, let me know. Thanks.

      • Janice Wald

        Thanks. I appreciate it. I feel I am having trouble growing a readership. How are you doing?

    • batteredhope

      Garry I am looking at it from my desktop. Where is the button? Under follow buttons, if I click on the RSS feed button, all I get is html.

  16. Garry Rackley

    Carol….this is the part that throws people off. When you click and get that html code do a control a (copy all)……then go to your blogger dashboard and to the left under reading list is add. Click add. That will add that blog to your list. Boom! Every time you open your blogger program there are all the blogs you added in that manner. It will update from now on every time a new post is added. You can read it there or click on it and go to the entire blog.

    By the way this applies to WordPress also but I don’t have it so I can’t describe how to do it.

  17. Carrie Ann Tripp

    Ok, I think I am caught up on adding everyone. If I missed you, please let me know! It wasn’t intentional.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      I am still blown away by your monthly stat of 20,000 views. Can you please give me advice on how to get new traffic? What worked for you? If you had to pick the #1 thing, what would it be? Thanks,
      Janice

      • Carrie Ann Tripp

        I share posts anywhere and everywhere I can find. I don’t know which one pays the biggest bang. I’m not to that point yet. I just know the more I share, especially places like #ultrablog that require members not only to visit but to COMMENT, the more my numbers go up.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Carrie,
          I go to #ultrablog daily too, but that only guarantees two views, yes? The two above my link? Do you know any active Linky groups? The ones I try and link to daily seem hit and miss.
          Thanks for answering my question.

  18. Carol Graham

    I had the same problem as you Carrie. That is why I have posted my blog address here two times. I think some people were clicking on the battered hope link instead of going to my blog. The battered hope link takes you to a Word press website that someone else set up for me and I never use. That is why I did not see those of you who followed me there — it was not my actual blog.

    Also, is there a way for people to leave comments here and on other similar websites without having to fill in your name and particular each and every time. At Blogger you do not have to do this and it is so much easier. Or is there no way around it?

      • Janice Wald

        Hi again, Are you familiar with the Lynky called We Are That Family? I frequently get traffic from their site, but their Linky seems closed. Do they have it daily? Weekly? I hate to waste time repeatedly checking back, but as I said I am still getting traffic from them! Do you know? Thanks.

  19. Garry Rackley

    It never occurred to me. This is the post we should really promote! I’ll start posting it at least once or twice a week. Also, I bet it would do well in the Blog communities! At some point it might help if you count up the number of links, summarize it in one post and then pin it at the top.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Garry,
      Thank you so much for the support as always. I counted 16 links. Where do I post it and pin it? Post it at the top of the information?? I’m so glad you like my idea.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Shawn,
      Welcome. I will follow you as soon as possible, and I hope you will follow me as well. I agree that it is important that we all “share”, “comment”, and “like” since it gets us all more traffic. I was afraid to verbalize this, so thank you. Once again, welcome. We have a nice group of people here.
      Janice

    Is there a way you could make a list of all the contributing bloggers? I don’t know who I missed and who I got as the thread gets longer and longer. That would be a tremendous help as I want to be sure we all get to follow each other.

  30. gigarack

    You want to keep it at the top of the page so if you don’t see a way to pin it there you could edit your original post and say something like Update 12-16-14: blah
    Blah
    Blah
    Then next month you could just change the date and add the additions. Just an idea.

    • Janice Wald

      Gary is it possible to embed a doc in a blogpost?

    • Janice Wald

      When you say the top, are you saying just make it part of the page information or the first comment. I could easily add a bulleted list to the page info!

      Sent from my iPhone

    • Janice Wald

      Good idea to give the date I updated it last. Check the top of the page out now. Better?

  31. gigarack

    I’m not sure….you could load it to a cloud service and link to that. Or couldn’t you just copy and paste the document in a comment? Long pressing on a comment brings up several options such as edit or delete on my android phone. With Blogger from the laptop it is edited from the dashboard.

  32. Janice Wald

    I just wanted to make sure everyone knows there is now a Master List at the top of the page. This should make it easier to know who we have already followed, and who we still need to follow back.
    Janice

  33. knottymarie

    Thank you Janice. I would also like to remind everyone here that if you are asking to be followed, your page should have something on it that makes it easy to follow with. New blogspot users are especially bad at forgetting to include this on their page, I’ve noticed. Keep in mind, not everyone wants to follow via RSS feed.

  34. batteredhope

    Thank you so much Janice — this is awesome. I will go through it and make sure I am following everyone.

    Thank you for making the list Janice. I went through the whole thing again to be sure I was following everyone. Four of the bloggers do not have follow buttons. Also, for those of you who only have a Follow me at Bloglovin button — rarely will that get you followers. I will click on the button but you have to scroll through so many blogs to find the ones you want to read. The follow by email is so much better — then I can see instantly your post title in my inbox and decide immediately if I want to read it.

        Thanks! I followed you back. Look forward to hearing more. I think some future blog posts will be about trying to be fit and lose some weight while still incapacitated with a fractured elbow, fractured spine. I can’t swim with my elbow in its current state so walking is the only thing I can do. Look forward to reading more on your pages especially on fitness and diet. I also take medication that can (and I think has) made weight gain more likely so any delicious dishes which are low in fat, sugar and high in vitamins and nutrients most welcome! Cheers for now.

      As the one who started the page, I apologize. I was not aware that there was offensive content in the blogs. Perhaps I should have put that in the instructions. However, what might be offensive to one person might not be offensive to another person.

If not, write them here and let them know you followed them and would appreciate a follow back. We are in our fourth month and haven’t had any problems. You will meet nice people.

  50. Lucie

    Hi Janice, First of all thank you for creating such a helpful source for people. What a kind, thoughtful gesture. I am a tad concerned, though, with this stipulation that we should “follow everyone that follows us”…..I am very much a newbie to this “blogging world”, but find myself a little overwhelmed “following and commenting” on everyone who chooses to follow me, especially when I don’t really have an interest in their particular post. People take time to create their blogs and I sooooo get that and appreciate that, but have very limited time in my day to follow “everyone’s posting on their bog” (I’ve discovered some bloggers will post 2 to 4 times/day! It’s mind boggling to me!) At the same time, I want to honor people by leaving a thougtful comment on their post to let them know that I sincerely, truly appreciated what they had to say and to me you really can’t do that when your numbers are so high. (That is not one of my issues, currently.) So my sincere question to you: Do you/we really want the followers (in numbers) when we’re really, sincerely not “attracted to what that particular blogger has to say”? I guess if people are trying to “earn a living by blogging” the numbers help, yes? But what other purpose does it serve us to have “the numbers” without the sincere “following and interest”? Anyway, I am sincerely NOT trying to “shoot down” what you’re doing here or otherwise invalidate your purpose here; it’s an innocent, sincere question from an (old) very confused newbie who is a tad confused. Thanks! 🙂

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Lucie,
      I agree with your comments. You should follow anyone whose blog seems interesting to you. Not everyone follows everyone. However, you will get out of the Follow to Follow list what you put in. You will only get the amount of followers that you follow.
      Janice

    • GigaRack

      Lucy all we are basically doing is putting the blogs on our reading list. In my case I scan my read list every other day or so. If I find something interesting I read it. If I really like it I share it. What I have discovered is that while it may be 6 months (or never) before I actually read one of the posts I followed….what matters to the author is that I am more likely to stumble across your blog if it is on my read list. Following a blog in no ways means that I endorse it or even like it……But I might :). Plus the people behind the blog shares a common interest with you and I regardless of the content. Have a great day!!

        You are so kind to respond to me, “GigaRack”. I’m still not comfortable with this “follow, even though I may not be interested in your content” kind of “follow”…..guess I’m kind of “old school”, but it seems kind of disingenuine to me. I do so sincerely appreciate your kindly taking the time to respond, though. Maybe as I acquire a certain “blog knowledge/maturity”, I’ll understand this concept of “following, but not really following” more. In the meantime, thank you very much for your kind input. Lucie 🙂

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Lucie,
          If you don’t mind my putting in my two cents once again…
          I recently interviewed 19 blogging experts. While they disagreed with each other, the overwhelming majority of them agreed that “networking” with other bloggers is the answer to successful blogging. Please read the interview since they explain why networking is so very important to blogging success. I got you the link http://wp.me/p5jxvv-sM
          That’s what we do here. We network.
          Janice

          • Lucie

            Janice, I knew you were a “sweetheart” when I went on your blog!!! What a thoughtful, sweet, kind gesture; truly I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. I will read this and “educate myself”. Thank you, Sweetheart, for such a lovely gesture of kindness and concern!!! <3 🙂

          • Janice Wald

            My pleasure. I love to help bloggers. That’s why I blog about blogging advice! If you change your mind and would like to be included to our network after all. Please let me know. I would also be happy to help with any other blogging questions/concerns you might have.

      Hi and Welcome!
      The good news is I added both to the Follow to Follow directory. The bad news is I don’t think they are links. They didn’t turn blue or purple like the others. I tried putting http:// in front of them but it didn’t help. Here’s the link if you want to check http://wp.me/P5jxvv-2m
      Please advise. I don’t want frustration if your links don’t work. Thanks,

    Janice, I am seriously loving your blog. My friend and fellow blogger Cindi have been joking that we’re like the geeky, retainer-wearing friends that write each other’s names in on the homecoming court ballot with our shameless “shares”.

    Good to know that there’s a whole community of bloggers helping each other. Please add my blog to your list.

    http://www.deadpandiaries.com

    Thanks so much!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      That’s why I started the Follow to Follow list. I felt new bloggers needed a directory where they could find, and follow, each other. We have a nice community here–nice people. I added your blog.
      Thank you so much for the kind words.
      Janice

    • Janice Wald

      I wanted you to know your nice comment meant so much to me that I put it on my Testimonial page–anonymously, of course.

    • The Cold Texan

      Hi Jes! I’m Ashley from Chronicles Of A Cold Texan. Followed you on Bloglovin 🙂

  53. Shel Harrington

    Well this is a fun find, Janice! Glad I found you reblogged on Elle Knowles blog – which, of course, supports your network theory! My primary blog is on Marriage and Divorce. Improving our marriages to avoid divorce, but doing divorce better if the unfortunate occurs – from “The Divorce Lawyer Who Doesn’t Like Divorce.” At: http://www.shelharrington.com

    On another note, and speaking of networking, have you considered any group Pinterest boards to broaden your reach there?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Shel! I would love to join group boards. Do you have any you could invite me to? Here is my Pinterest handle:
      https://www.pinterest.com/janicewald/
      So far, I’ve been a little stymied by Pinterest. I feel my images get increasingly pinnable, but I’ve been disappointed by my lack of traffic from there. I know women who get almost half their traffic from Pinterest! Please invite me. I appreciate the support, so much.

      As far as your professional experience with divorce: Do you read my About Me page? I am actually a contributing writer for Divorced Moms. I actually have not pursued writing for them. The reason is as follows: If they publish my writing, and I get followers from there, they’ll be disappointed I fear, that I primarily give blogging advice. I have many posts on relationships, including marital, but it’s the exception not the rule. What do you think?
      Please invite me to your group boards on Pinterest if you have any, and thank you for thinking of me.
      Janice
      PS Welcome to my site. I hope we can interact again. Elle did me quite a favor by reblogging me. Many people have come over from her site since the reblog.
      Janice

      • Shel Harrington

        The only group boards I have (besides those I share with my sister for our 2 Good Sisters Pinterest site (we attached it to our own boards in hopes of some growth, but without separate FB friends, it seems hard to grow on Pinterest) are groups of Family Law lawyers and counselors for Divorce Resources and Kids in Divorce. I’m part of one for Blogging Posts and a Marriage Resource group, but I didn’t start them so I don’t control who gets invited. But it’s super easy to start your own group. If you have an existing board that you would want others to pin on, you simply go to edit and add them to the invite list. You should be following each other (on at least one board) and the invite will go to the email they used to set up the account with. They have to accept the email, then the board will appear on their own site and they can pin to it. You will be able to delete pins you don’t want there, but the pinners you invite will only be able to edit or delete their own contributions. You might want to start one for people to put their favorite posts, or posts on a given topic, or best blogging tips, or anything else of interest. Here’s my site in case you want to invite me to anything! https://www.pinterest.com/shelharrington/

        With regard to writing for Divorce Moms, you should be ALL over that. You don’t HAVE to put in the blog in your bio if it’s not relevant to the audience, or you can put you blog about blogging and relationships. You should have categories on your blog so that people can go look at the topics they are interested in. But if you are interested in writing more, don’t let such opportunities pass because each one gives you additional writing creds (credits AND credibility!). I’m not familiar with that publication – is it paper or online? It sounds like something I’d be interested in contributing to!

        You have my email address – please feel free to email me if you have follow-up on any of the our topics we’ve covered!

        • Janice Wald

          Hi!
          It’s no problem at all. I have received many invitations and actually am a member of about 9 group Pinterest boards. Perhaps once I continue to grow my following which currently stands at about 564, and I fix the pin link problem, I’ll get more traffic from there.
          As I wrote you in the Email I sent you, you’ve become a friend in the last week. Thanks for looking out for me!
          Janice

          • Janice Wald

            Hi Shel,
            Since you write about relationships, and I have a relationship board, I tried to invite you so pin to my board. It seemed to want your Email instead of your Pinterest handle. That would be fun to share a Pinterest board. Let me know if you don’t get the invite and I’ll try again using your Gmail address.
            Janice

      • Shel Harrington

        I just went to your pin site and clicked on a relationship article. It didn’t take me to that post. It took me to a roster of blogging articles. You have to pin while you are in the post (the post is in the URL line) or your pin goes to your site instead of the specific post.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi,
          I wrote you a lengthy response to your Email(Gmail?)
          Thank you so much for giving me a heads up!
          I look forward to your response to the Gmail I sent you.

      Thank you so much for your kind words and your support of my writing. Somewhere I understood you to write that you followed my blog. I kept checking but I never received notice.

      I added your blog. Welcome to our Follow to Follow Directory!

  72. Anushka

    Hey! I created a new book blog and I’d love to have more followers 🙂

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Anushka,
      I was hoping to keep the Follow to Follow Directory as a perk for my blog followers. Here is the link to sign up.

      I am currently offering four incentives in addition to membership in the directory.

    I love meeting new bloggers. Follow me at debbiedeywrites.wordpress.com, and I’ll be sure to follow back.

    • Janice Wald

      Thank you so very much. Nice to meet you. I’d be happy to add you to the Follow to Follow Directory, where you made your comment, if you don’t mind signing up first. I was hoping to keep it as a perk for my followers. There are currently three incentives for signing up, four if you go through this link http://wp.me/P6x6vQ-hM.

      I’m looking forward to seeing which one you submit for our Weekly Roundup. I’m excited to find a blogger who blogs about blogging like myself.

    Well done for this initiative – I’m two months blogging now, loving it but slightly obsessed with it also. 🙂 Love hearing from fellow bloggers and reading their posts – such good stuff out there! Thanks all.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi, Nirodaigh! You commented on the Follow to Follow Directory. I would love to have your follow. I help new bloggers at my site, and you indicated you’re a new blogger. If you have a moment to put your Email in the subscribe box, I could add you to the Directory.

    Hi, J. Thank you so much for your blog and for visiting mine (from one teacher and pop culture junkie to another as well). Yours has been quite interesting and invaluable for those of us relatively new to this sort of thing (well, I just haven’t been as active as I could’ve been). I’ve definitely “followed” via email, and I look forward to reading the collective blogs listed here.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi M.Jennings!
      Thank you so much for following my blog. Are you on Pinterest? I will send you an invite to pin to our group board.
      Janice

      Hey Michael,
      Good morning to YOU. When I get home from work tonight I will add you to our Follow to Follow Directory. Thanks for your interest. Have a good Monday.
      Janice

    • Janice Wald

      HI Michael,
      I wrote you on your site thanking you for making me the featured blogger on your site. I am flattered and honored. I added you to the Follow to Follow Directory. Welcome!
      Janice

  78. Keisha Hanvy

    I would like to be added to the Follow to Follow directory. This is a great idea! Thanks.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Keisha,
      It was exciting to meet you today. I owe Danny Ray a “thank you”. I would love to add you to the Follow to Follow Directory. Since it was meant to be a perk for my followers, I took the liberty of adding you to the MostlyBlogging subscriber list. If that is okay, please validate your subscription in your Email, and I will add you to the directory. Thank you so much for your interest.

      Hi Keisha,
      I just wanted you to know I added you to the Follow to Follow Directory.

    This is a great initiative! I find myself wishing I had more time in each day to read your posts.

    Here’s mine: a blog of science, African adventure, and education across the globe.

      Hi Doc Emily,
      I hope you are doing well. I wanted you to know I added your blog to the Follow to Follow Directory.

    I love this idea…I need followers and I will go through the above list and follow at least 10. Then I will follow all future followers to my blog. That should give me some good follow karma, right?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Anna,
      I am sorry I didn’t respond sooner (I never take more than two days to respond), but I was a little confused by these comments.
      1. Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you like the idea of my Follow to Follow Directory.
      2. Since the directory was to be a perk for my followers, and you expressed interest, I took the liberty of adding your Email (which came through with your comment) to the Subscribe box on the home page of the blog. If you’d like to be added to the Follow to Follow Directory, simply activate your subscription in your Email. Thank you.
      I look forward to future interactions.

    I’d love to join the Pinterest group and follow-to-follow! I have what might be a dumb question, though. How can I tell if someone from this list follows my blog? If we’re talking about email follows, I can’t tell whether an email follower has a blog. I also might not be able to tell if a social media follower is on this list. Thanks and I apologize if this is a stupid question!
    http://www.livingwithbeth.com

    • Janice Wald

      How to tell if someone follows your blog?
      Well, let’s say you follow me, MostlyBlogging. Then, you get a new follower. It tells you the blog name of your new follower, so you would know if it was MostlyBlogging that followed you back or not.
      No such thing as a dumb question. I promise. I am a teacher. Never!
      The Follow to Follow Directory is for people to get their blogs followed, so the Email follower wouldn’t sign up for the Follow to Follow Directory.
      As far as social media, that isn’t connected to this Follow to Follow Directory. This is for blog followers.
      I hope I clarified. I will send you the invitations right now.
      Janice

      • Beth McIntire

        I’m sorry, I don’t understand what follow to follow is if it’s not email or social media.

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Beth,
          I checked out your site. Yes, this does have to do with Email. People want to grow their Email lists. If you put your Email into their “Email address” box (widget?), they will put their Email into yours within three days; otherwise, unfollow. It is a way to grow your Email list. I’m sorry I was initially confused by your question.
          Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Beth,
      I sent you an invitation to pin to our group board. Thank you for inviting me to pin to yours. Exciting!
      I am now on the Follow to Follow Directory. Didn’t you also want link exchange? I am thinking technology.

      Hi Christina,
      Thank you so much for your interest in my Follow to Follow Directory. I would love to add you. Since I was hoping to keep the directory as a way of saying thank you to my followers, I took the liberty of entering your Email in the subscribe box on my blog. If you could just take a moment to activate your subscription, I would be happy to add you to the directory. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Christina,

      Sorry, Marie, but I am not sure what you are thanking me for.

    What a nice way to “give back”. I appreciate the opportunity. Please – only follow me if you’re genuinely interested – I write about Christianity, homesteading and preparedness. Message me and I’ll follow back. I’m not sure how I discovered Mostly Blogging, but I’ve signed up for email notifications. 🙂

    Thank you so very much for doing this.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Marie,
      You sound like such a nice person. Everyday write me with such kind words. However, I looked on my subscriber lists and didn’t see your Email. Did you activate your subscription in your Email? You should have received an Email with a way to activate your subscription. See if you can fine the Email and activate your subscription. Thank you so very much for your interest and again for all your kind words.
      Janice

      • Just Plain Marie

        Oh! I filled it and sent, and didn’t pay attention to what happened. It said there was an error.

        If you’d like to add my email manually, I’ll confirm. 🙂

        • Janice Wald

          Hi,
          I know. It said there was an error when I tried as well. Is there another Email you can try?

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Marie,
          Great news! Figuring maybe my site was glitchy over the weekend, I put your Email into the homepage of my site in the “subscriber box”, and it said “Success.” Yay! All you have to do is activate your subscription in your Email. I am so relieved. You sound like such a nice person. I felt bad it didn’t work out. When you activate your subscription, I’ll add you to the Follow to Follow Directory. Thank you in advance.
          Janice

          • Janice Wald

            Hi Marie,
            1. At Gmail, try clicking “All Mail”. The subscription link should have come in around 11:00 pm California time last night.
            2. How did you know that Sumo.me was not transferring the Emails to MailChimp? I also have the Sumo.me Emails pushed to MailChimp. How would I know if it wasn’t working? Thanks

    Hi Janice,
    This is a great concept and I’m looking forward to meeting more bloggers this way! Definitely will be upholding the honor system. Thanks!

    Janice,

    I am confused. I used to be a “follower” but now it says I am not. You even reblogged me once, “Yay, I Finally Did It!” I did not unfollow you or unsubscribe from you. You disappeared from my emails and I disappeared from your blog. I recognize that your blog looks different than it did before and even has a new name. Did I get lost in a revamping? Or is this a second site? Is being registered something different than subscribing or following?

    Thanks.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Memee (Brianna?)
      I am confused too. If you are not following the blog anymore, how did you find out about my new site? How did you find How to Get New Blog Followers page? I tried to put your Email into the home page, but I got an error message. Do you have another Email you could try? Othe
