How To: Promote Your Blog

 Hello, loyal readers! I know this is a short post, but if you want to know how to promote your blog, look no further- I have a great tutorial with some tips to help give your blog a boost-

1.
Get Featured on BBK!

This one is the most obvious- what better way to get promoted than be featured on the front page of Blogs By Kids! Of course, it only works if you ARE a kid.

2.
Comment on Other Blogs

No one will pay your blog any attention if you don't pay THEIR blog any attention- go comment on all of your favorite blogs! I'm sure they'll give you back some much-deserved attention.

3.
Pay for Advertisements

Most people don't want to do this, and I know I wouldn't. You can get plenty of views WITHOUT advertising, but I decided to list this just in case some of you kid bloggers have wealthy parents and are serious about your blog.

4.
Respond to the Readers You Already Have

Ignoring the comments by your current readers will definitely turn them away- and repel other people as well! Remember to be kind and courteous, so that your readers will respect you and possibly recommend your blog to their friends.

5.
Link Your Blog to Your Social Media Accounts

For those tech-savvy Tweeters and bloggers out there, connecting your social media accounts to your blog will definitely up those views! Especially if you already have a lot of followers/friends/etc.

 I was on a bit of a time crunch today, so the post was a little short. And if you haven't already noticed, I switched my signature column to the "How To's" posts. I hope you found my tips useful, so comment below if you did! Thanks for reading everyone, and have a wonderful day.

How To Follow Blogs with Broken Members Widgets

Hello!

 Let me just note that this post was originally on Squishingly, so the blog pictured is an older design from my personal blog. Just in case y'all were wondering. Haha, enjoy.

 So, some blogs on Blogger have been having major issues with the Members widget. If it says, "We're sorry... We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later," then you've found the perfect blog post! Let me show you how to fix it!


 That is my blog. Now, the red box above shows you my Members widget. The picture below is just a close-up of that widget.


 Instead of clicking on the blue "Join this site" button that you usually would, go ahead and pop the widget out. You can do this by clicking on the two squares overlapping each other, or the button inside the red box.


 Now, this window will pop up on your screen. Click on the "Follow with Google Friend Connect" button, and you'll get another pop-up window. The next one should be familiar to you, if you've followed other blogs. That's all there is to it!

 This is a really simple tutorial to follow, so that's all I've got for now. Have a wonderful day everyone, and I hope my quick-fix helped you out! Please, please, please let me know in the comments if you found it useful, 'cause I love hearing good things from you guys! Thank you!
