question of the month: building bloggy relationships

I asked this month's sponsors to share their wisdom and experience of building relationships with bloggers and shop owners in the community. Let's hear what each had to say...




Blog // Twitter // Facebook // Pinterest

I build relationships usually through emails. I like to email bloggers back when they comment on my blog and that usually starts a chain of emailing back-and-forth and a new bloggy friendship :)

One way that I enjoy meeting new bloggers or shop owners is simply commenting on their blog, e-mailing, or chatting with them on twitter. I think it's important to not worry about connecting to everyone, but authentically reach out to people that you genuinely want to get to know better :)

For me, building relationships is all about who you have a true connection with. If I meet another blogger that I absolutely connect with, I'll tell them. (I've only met a few that I absolutely adore and have totally connected with.) I'm the furthest from being a networking guru, and I'm okay with that. Building honest, true relationships is what I'm all about and I could care less about my blog numbers. Weird?

I try to connect with other blogs and readers through comment conversation. If a blog seems to ask a question, or if the content touched my heart, I try to comment. I like seeing the discussion that gets going. If someone makes a comment on my blog, I almost always answer back. They took the time to read my post, and the time to leave a comment-which is a huge encouragement to me. I have found that it only takes leaving/responding to a comment a time or two, and your start to get a relationship going. I have 3 friends in particular in the blogging world that I feel were my first blogging buddies and I appreciate them. We cheer each other on. It is great. 

How do YOU connect with other bloggers/shop owners?

  3. Great post! Love to see what other bloggers say. I think Twitter is my main form of communicating with other bloggers, next comes the comments. I recently figured out how to reply to comments directly from my blog so it just made my life a whole lot easier.
