Prowling for new blogs to follow

I’m sat in the library just pondering my Reader page on the WordPress app and noticing something – I barely have any new content popping up! What gives?!

Everybody puts a lot of time and effort into creating really good content and unless I spend my entire day searching particular tags, I struggle to find new content and I do really enjoy a casual browse when I’m having a cup of tea or walking between places.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to find a bunch of likeminded bloggers who are happy to be quite interactive? I love the idea of having a bigger sense of community about my blog.

Thank you in advance!

  1. Hello Alex! I hope you’ve been having a wonderful week so far!
    I thought I was the only one who felt that way with the WordPress app! I too have noticed that new content barely shows up time to time. I find it so tedious to go through the tags to find stuff that I like too as there’s just too much.

    I’d like to suggest doing something similar to what Jessica of Personal Growth And Success has done (which you can see here https://personalgrowthsuccessblog.com/2018/03/27/leave-your-links-make-some-new-friends-%F0%9F%98%8A/) of people leaving links in your post, sort of what the Community Pool does! That way you can get people interacting a lot through the comments, and maybe even find new stuff to read for yourself too πŸ˜€

    I hope this helps! It’s quite a lengthy reply :, D

    1. Hi Jessica, thank you so much for this reply – you’ve put some real thought into it and I’m very grateful!
      I’ll definitely consider implementing this idea as it seems like a fantastic thing to do to gain awareness of what’s available, especially to those of us who may not always have the time to search through certain tags.

      Thank you again, much appreciated!

  2. Oh my goodness, Claire you are so SWEET !!! Thank you so much for recommending my post! Alex, to create a post like http://personalgrowthsuccessblog.com/2018/03/27/leave-your-links-make-some-new-friends-😊 is a great way to meet sooooo many new bloggers!! Seeing other bloggers do this has inspired me to do one of my own. Not only does it help my blog personally but it’s also helping so many others and that’s my main goal for it πŸ™‚ also, I don’t know if you have a Twitter account or not but that’s where I’ve met A LOT of new and awesome bloggers as well from all over this world! I wish you both many blessings and much success in your journey of blogging!!! πŸ™‚

      1. You’re welcome!
        I’ve NEVER had a Twitter account until probably early last month. My Husband talked me into creating one and following blogging pages, promoting my posts everyday and tagging them.. and as a result, that alone has gotten my blog a lot of exposure and has helped me to make new blogging friends along the way!

  3. I’m afraid I’m still trying to figure this out myself, but I agree with what everyone said above! I have made many excellent blogging friends via WordPress and these occasional social posts really help expand connections. Best wishes on your blogging journey! 😊
