Seven things that will make a blogger happy or at least, slightly happy

'seven'
Today is July 7 (7/7) so I thought I write a list of 7 things. This list sort of came from someone's else's idea from a post I had read a while back but now I don't have the link. These are, I think, good ways to support a blogger especially for those who don't use social media like me though these can benefit any bloggers because we all want some sort of sign that someone reads our blog, right?

Seven things that will make a blogger happy or at least, slightly happy:

01/ Leave a comment on their blog — very obvious but it may as well be the number one reason I blog because quite frankly, no matter how much I think I'm blogging for myself, I like having readers & I like having my posts read

02/ Use affiliated links — such as Amazon, Book Depository, any sites that you might shop from, though the blogger will earns very little money off it, it still does something

03/ Follow/subscribe to their blog — I have bloglovin' and set a link to subscribe by email but I really have no understanding of either one, it just seems to me readers just follow/subscribe and sort of forget whatever blog they follow/subscribe but maybe that's not true

04/ Send an email — is just saying 'hello' enough? I don't always know. I sort of think leaving comments is more effective but you can send a blogger email and I'm sure you'll get a respond

05/ Mention a blogger or link to their blog in your post — it's just nice to promote other bloggers, how else could you tell people about all the great blogs you encounter? social media sure but since I don't have any of that, posting blog links is really all I can do. So here's 7 blogs that I think you should visit today:
1) Beauty Flows
2) Joojoo
3) Knitting the wind
4) Twentythree am
5) Curating Cuteness
6) Just way too boss
7) La vie graphite

06/ Buy their stuff — many bloggers are artists and writers who already have art & books to sell so why not buy from them?

07/ Simply visit their blog — yes, just a visit, browse, read, digest information, I do it all the time because I find just enjoying a blog is sometimes enough but it does sometimes prompt me to leave a comment or two

What ways do you spread blog love?

  1. You give great examples,and as much as we may not like to admit, it is fun to see comments. I always like meeting new friends and glad you gave a list of bloggers I've never seen before. Thanks for the tips! Happy Friday! RO

    1. thanks. since 7 is my favorite, I actually enjoy making this piece.

      if no one comments, I suppose I would feel a bit lacking because why blog if not to get people to react by commenting?

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  4. I have to agree. Comments are the blog-version of likes and ♥. Don't you just love it when people strike a conversation and you end up finding kindred souls from across the globe?

    PS: Your blog is so cute!

    1. oh yes, comments are great. it's really the only thing I can as I'm not on social medai.

      I don't think anyone had said my blog as being cute but thank you. have a lovely day.

  5. That is a good list and that headline is so you...with it's clarifier at the end! lol. Love the art piece too. Also very you.

    You know, while I subscribe to blogs, I tend to only have time to read the blogs of those people who interact with me, not because I don't love others too but who has the time?

    You raise great points here. I do try to support those people I truly enjoy online, like yourself! I should buy some of your art too, in fact!

    For the list of blogs. I do recognise two of them in fact. Will need to look at the others too.

    Thank you.

    1. it's true, no one really have the time to read all the blogs they want, it's just how it is. but I'm also like you, if people leave comments on my blog, I would likely go visit them then the ones on my list but I do visit every one of the blogs on my reading list every now and then.

      you can't buy my art because I have no place set up for that, I guess I should start again but I'm just too lazy to do the promoting part, because even if you have your art out there for sale, you still have to promote them and it's quite time consuming.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.

  6. As for comments, the ones from blogs are way better, longer, than the short ones done on IG or FB or such.

    1. since I'm not on IG or FB, I really don't know how those comment system works but yes, on a blog you can leave a very long comment and yes, I do like them better.

      thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day.
