What do you have to do? Help a new, struggling or undiscovered blogger.
We all remember what is was like when we first started blogging. It is frustrating and confusing. I read a blog post on Alex's IWSG in November, by a blogger who was struggling to gain readers and followers. I often come across blog post by writers who are about to throw in the towel because they are posting consistently, but they just cannot seem to attract a wider audience.
Alex Cavanaugh and Matthew at QQQE hosted the "Pay it Forward" blogfest that was designed to help "under the radar" bloggers connect with fellow bloggers and the result was amazing. I am not trying to duplicate their blogfest. First of all I don't have the following or platform to plug anything that big. I decided a while back, when I reached 100 followers that I wanted to host something and award prizes as my way of recognizing how wonderful all of you are. I am a relatively new blogger and I have met some wonderful people. I have been so impressed with how easily and quickly this group of write/bloggers is to offer support or answer questions whenever the need arises.
I already had a few prizes that I was saving for this occasion. I had to delay it because of NaNo then the holidays and then my husband's illness. I now have even more prizes. Because two of these prizes are pretty big ticket items I thought it would be okay to ask your help in return for the opportunity to win.
Because I was so fortunate as a new blogger to have so many of you show me the ropes, I wanted to try and extend a helping hand to others I keep coming across who are struggling.
Once you sign up, all you have to do is be on the look out for bloggers who are new, don't have many followers, are struggling in some way or just have yet to be discovered so their blog is not reaching enough of us.
1. Sign up here
2. Look for or stumble upon a blogger in need
3. Offer to help them with whatever issue they are struggling with (this could be showing them how to make
sure their comment on a blog post links back to their blog or profile or making sure they have their blog
linked to their blogger profile.) There is no requirement here. It is simple really. Lend your blogging experience or expertise to help another blogger gain readers or help them with a problem they are struggling with. You could help them get their blog noticed by other bloggers. Offer to do a guest post on their blog or interview them on your blog. Do as little or as much as you are comfortable doing.
4. Do this from now until February 29th (Leap Year).
5. On March 1st post about it on your own blog. Tell us who you helped or discovered, what you did and provide a link to their blog so we can all visit the blogger you mentored.
6. One winner will select from the above two prizes.
7. 2nd place will win the prize not selected by the first prize winner.
