Congrats to the winner of a $10 Amazon Giftcard, Kai at Fiction State of Mind!
It’s hour 20! We made it! Well, actually, I’m scheduling this in advance, so you and the minions definitely made it. I might be asleep by now! Either way, welcome to the hour 20 Let’s Get Social challenge Here’s what we’re going to be doing…
A while ago I wrote a discussion post about how I comment in order to get the best interactions with other bloggers. The gist of it is this:
- whenever you read a post, be thinking about a meaningful comment you can leave
- if someone comments on your blog, comment on theirs
- comment on 3-5 blogs ahead of you in every link up you add to
- talk to people on twitter
I think all of these things have one thing in common that makes them work so well. They all connect you with people who share your interests enough for you to follow them; for them to follow you; or for you to be participating in the same events. I had maybe one or two people I felt like I was getting to know through my blog before I started doing these things. Since doing these things, I’ve gotten to know a lot of new people and really started to feel like part of a community.
So, my challenge for you is the following: pick one or more of the things above to try and sometime in the next three hours, come back and leave me a comment letting me know what you did. That’s it! I’ll then choose a winner at random from people who have commented and they will get a $10 Amazon gift card when I announce the winner at the beginning of hour 23. Happy reading!
