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!

These bloggers would like to be your new blog followers:

    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 Garry,
      I just realized that anyone who posts here should click “Notify me of new comments,” so you’ll know when someone else posts their link here. I just added that to my instructions. Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Garry,
      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.

      • Janice Wald

        Hi Foodie,
        I am now following your blog through my Email. I did not see you on my list. Can you please follow me back at mycurrentnewsblog.com? Thank you!
        Janice

    • Janice Wald

      I subscribed to your blog this evening Carol. You’ve been interviewed on the radio! I’m impressed. I enjoyed perusing your articles Thanks for following my blog.
      Janice

      • batteredhope

        Yes, I havae had several radio interviews and as of today been asked to host my own show!! How cool is that. I am trying to follow each person here but some of them are just too difficult to figure out. I am wondering why???

        • Janice Wald

          How did you get people to hear of you so quickly? You said you’re a new blogger; how long has it been?
          Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Carol,

      By the way, did you get my request for the blog assessment link? Thanks.

    • 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

    • Carrie Ann Tripp

      Followed via G+! Already followed on Twitter.

      • 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.

      • knottymarie

        I have no idea.. haven’t heard of this one.

    • Janice Wald

      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

    • batteredhope

      I can’t find a follow button on your blog, Melodi. Can you help?

      • 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

    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 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

      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?

    I think you can delete posts Janice….since it is your blog.

    • Carrie Ann Tripp

      Followed using the super easy and immediate follow button!

      • cavellemartin

        Thanks! I followed back 🙂

      • 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

      • cavellemartin

        No worries! lol going to your blog right now! 🙂

      • 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.

  5. 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!

    • Anonymous

      that was kind of helpful, thanks

  6. 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

      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.

    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.

      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

        Hi,
        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.

        • TheLastWord

          Was traveling … Will be along soon to comment.

          • 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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

      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

      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.

    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

    • 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,

    • 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?

    No. your name is still not there. 🙁

    • 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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?

  19. 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,

  20. Garry Rackley

    Thanks, good to know.

    • 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. ropafadzoprecious

    Done 😀

  26. 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.

    Hello everyone, I’m a relatively new blogger, and i cover everything fashion related! This varies from menswear and womenswear, to my life as a fashion student! I post atleast 3 times a week, and try to make my posts unique and interesting.
    Check me out!

    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.

    • Janice Wald

      Can I embed a doc & list everyone? If I can’t maybe Garry Rackley knows how Janice Sent from my iPhone

    • Janice Wald

      I’m on it Carol! Check out the top of the page. Better?

    • Janice Wald

      It’s there now at the top of the page.

  41. 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!

      • gigarack

        Yes exactly (top of page thing).

      • gigarack

        Just reply to your 1st comment.

    • Janice Wald

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

  42. 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.

    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

    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.

  45. batteredhope

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

    • Janice Wald

      Sorry I didn’t do it sooner. It was a great idea.

  46. Roseanne

    Thank you for the invite, Janice. I am so glad you started this. I think it is going to be a great asset to all of us! 🙂

  47. Ashley Tukiainen

    I think I’ve managed to follow everyone except the select few who don’t have follow or subscription boxes

  48. Fantabulous Frugal Finds

    Hello,
    My name is Christy and I am new to blogging, and currently run a money maker/saver page.
    Check it out.

  49. batteredhope

    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.

    I’m not a new blogger but I’m not a blog that’s been around for a long time as well; however, I am looking for a couple more followers. My blog is called “No Title” so its a mix of different things, some stuff far out but my current stuff is a little closer to home. Come by and check me out at deanmartin21.blogspot.com hope to see and hear from ya soon.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      Thanks for the follow. Adding you to the list now. Then I’ll follow you back.

      • Janice Wald

        Hi,
        I added you to the list but I had trouble following you back; it said the site wasn’t authenticated. When I added http://www: I still had trouble. Are you Deanmartin21@blogspot or lagreenmarketing? Please apprise. I don’t want people having a frustrating time with links. Thanks,
        Janice

    Hi there, and happy blogging. My blog address is http://www.haslaptopwilltravel.blogspot.com. Happy reading. I am looking forward to following the other links on this page – lots of new reading materials and food for thought in 2015! Cheers, Jessica

      • Jessica Carmody

        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.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jessica,
      I love your site name–has laptop will travel–
      I followed your blog. Mine is mycurrentnewsblog.com. Thank you for the follow back and joining our group! Janice

    Thanks! I followed all of them that had a way to follow… maybe left out a few that had some nudity on their page. 🙂

    • Janice Wald

      Hi John,
      Welcome again to our group.
      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.
      Thanks for letting me know. I hope you’re able to get more traffic, even if it isn’t 100% of the possibilities.

      Hi,
      Nice to meet you. Thank you for coming to our Follow to Follow page. I added you to the list, but it doesn’t have a http:// or a www. in front of it. Does it need one? Thanks again,
      Janice

    • Janice Wald

      Hi,
      I followed you via both Google + and Yahoo News. By the way, your link worked just fine. Can you please follow me back at mycurrentnewsblog.com? Thanks.

    Very generous. How did it work?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi!
      Did you want to be added to our Follow to Follow group or are you writing to inquire how it works?
      If you’re writing to inquire how it works, I’ll explain:
      If you want to be added, I will add your blog URL to the list. You follow people on the list, and they follow you back. It’s that simple! Thanks for following me, by the way. Let me know if you’d like your blog link included. Thanks for your interest.
      Janice

      • lbeth1950

        Yes to both. Thanks.

    Hey! This is such an lovely idea! I really love how everyone is sticking together in the community.
    It is hard when you start and dreams and ideas can feel rather dashed when you feel like your blog isn’t getting a lot of exposure.

    I’m really greatful you invited me to read this. Thank you! Please add me to the list!

      Thank you for the follow! How long have you been blogging? 300 is impressive–in what amount of time, if you don’t mind my asking.

        I started my blog over three years ago but rarely posted. I restarted in Sept 2014 and joined Blogging U 101. I had 6 followers when I restarted. It’s coming along. I really like to get involved in the events and just be exposed to really great writing from other bloggers 🙂
