"Grow Your Blog" Party

I recently discovered that Vickie of 2 Bags Full is hosting a “Grow Your Blog” Party in January. I signed up! 

Let’s face it. We all get discouraged from time to time on the limited exposure of our blogs. We want more followers. We want more comments. We want to make more friends! But it takes action on our part to make these goals happen. 

Here’s an opportunity that may help you discover some new blogging friends in 2013! Click on the image link below to get the details and sign up.


  1. thanks for posting this link

  2. Interesting...not particularly my goal at this point, though I'm sure that there will be some terrific tips.

  3. Sounds like a great idea, Donna... When I first started on Blogger in 2009, I would find bloggers which I liked --and I'd visit some of the people who would comment on their blogs. I always felt as if bloggers who commented on blogs that I REALLY liked, that I would like these folks also... I'd continue to visit the ones I liked until I would really get to know someone else. They, if they were visiting my blog regularly too, I'd add them. My list grew and grew.

    I don't pay much attention to bloggers who follow me yet never comment. It's the comments which I really enjoy.

    One word of warning: Don't do as I did and get so many regulars that you can't keep up... I truly would rather have 25 people that are real friends and who have great blog posts.

    Stick with blogs you really enjoy reading. I have several people who come to me regularly --and because of that, I also go to them---but truly don't enjoy their blogs (which say nothing to me and my interests). I don't know how to get out of going to them though ---so that is my word of caution to you.

    If you have questions, email me... I've been doing this a long long time --and love it. BUT--I've learned alot!!!


  4. This is a really great idea especially for those just starting out and maybe feeling a little discouraged by the lack of traffic. I don't know if I'll participate as I have a hard time now keeping up with the regulars who stop by and visit me but I'll keep it in mind.

  5. It definitely is work. I go through seasons where I have more time to put into building it and this past year was not one of them. I'll have to check that out though.
    I am thankful for all of those who have stuck with me all these years though. For that, I am grateful.

  6. Such a great idea. I may join a little later when things settle down. As for followers, I stopped fiddling with that a while back because I'm a stick in the mud, and don't blog anything like I used to. I've been blogging for almost ten years, hard to believe. :)

    Love, LOVE my blog friends! And, you know I'll always be checking on you.


  7. Sounds like a great idea! I would love to join but I'll have to think about it. I don't have nearly as much time to devote to my blog as I would like!

  8. Hi There, I tried to find where a person could sigh up andor take part in the event. I went to her site and found some info however, the date is Oct. 23, 2012. Any help will be welcome. Http:// Thanks LenZie
