Helping Out Your Favorite Bloggers...

My good friend Shelly, over at Coupon Teacher, did a fabulous post about helping out your favorite blogger (regardless of who it might be)! I just thought I'd pass in on to you guys, because it's definitely worth reading. You can go HERE to read it.

I am not just a blogger. I am a blog reader, as well! I read over 50 blogs on a daily basis. All of the things Shelly lists are things that I used to never do, but now always do. Why? Because now I'm on the other side of it and see it from the blogger's perspective.

I never realized how much it meant to a blogger when readers comment on posts...

I never realized that e-mails *mean the world* to a blogger...

I never realized that bloggers care about and are very interested in readers sending them deals!

Interaction - it's the key. I love blogging, but what would blogging be without YOU? I most love blogging on the days when I get many comments on posts, personal e-mails from readers, and interaction on my Facebook or Twitter pages! When there is no interaction, bloggers feel like they are writing for nobody - to an empty space. It's quite depressing!

You may think you're just a "little reader" in the huge blogging world, but I promise you're not. Never think that way. Readers are the most important part of blogging. Without readers, blogging is pointless!

So go leave your favorite blogger some LOVE, whether it's me or somebody else out there!

I love all of you! =)

What a great post! I just started mine in January, and there are days when I want to scream "IS ANYONE READING THIS". It's so nice to get comments and emails on occasion of people saying thank you. It made my week (or probably month!!) when I found out I was the "blogger of the week" on couponing to disney this week. Little ole me! I have been slack about commenting on blogs, and need to get it in gear :-)

By the way, I do LOVE your blog! You always post insightful info!

Mommy Octopus - Don't get down. People are reading. It's just a REALLY small ratio of people who comment to people who read. I know it can be really depressing some days, but keep at it. =) Congrats on the blogger of the week! How amazing. Kristin is such a sweet blogger. She's amazing!

I'll have to start following you via Google Reader. =]

Oh my gosh, my exact feelings there in black and white. I do my very best to not only comment but to make them meaningful so the bloggers know their message was heard. That their mission was not lost on me. Blogging is truly a labor of love and if we can build a supportive blogging community then we are all the better for it. After all, everyone can bring a new flare into the mix.

Thanks for the post!!!

You are one of five blogs I check daily. I love the fact we're so close in age (you're 2 yrs older than me) b/c I can relate to you a lot! I also love how you blog about your life as well, it's so much more interesting to read than just the deals, because honestly I could get those anywhere. You put a lot of personality into your blog and that makes it fun to read. =)

Amanda - Thanks for always reading. =} So glad that you do. Don't feel like you have to comment on every post. But every now and then to let me know you're here would be great! He He. I appreciate all your comments. Thanks so much!

Sara and Sara - Thank you both so much! You're too sweet. =)
