Blogging becomes easier if you make blogging buddies. Blogging gets harder and harder if you fly solo. Why make blogging harder if blogging can be easier? Networking is one key to blogging success because making friends grows your blogging success. Friends amplify your success. Imagine 5, 10 or 50 blogging buddies retweeting your latest blog post? Sweet, right? Imagine driving 10 people to your blog daily. But then, imagine 50 people retweeting your latest blog post. 10 people becomes 200 people, because blogging buddies do what you cannot do, multiplying your presence fast. You can do the work of one person. 50 other human beings can do the work of 50 people. Do you see what I mean? Friends make everything easier. Friends make life easier and success easier to attain. Make friends. Stop flying solo.
Picture yourself publishing posts only to your blog. Write one post. Publish the post. How many people read your blog? Not many. Flying solo never works well because blogging works as a team effort and blogging never works solo. People never find you if you try to do it all solo because you never get involved with other people. Folks see you as an outsider, an untrusted commodity, and avoid you. Not good. But commenting genuinely on blogs, promoting bloggers on your blog and promoting bloggers on social media lets you bond with these bloggers. Bonds strengthen. Slowly but surely, more of these bonds blossom into beautiful friendships between blogging buddies. Blogging buddies promote you, endorse you and increase your blog traffic and profits because friends care for friends. This is a simple law of life. Friends take care of friends. But drilling deeper, we simply keep returning to where we are loved. This is a core foundation of successful blogger outreach; if a fellow blogger loves what you do, give this blogger virtually all of your attention, energy and love. Simple concept, but incredibly powerful too because going to where you are loved allows your love-success to expand. Blogging buddies who admire your work keep promoting you, endorsing you, hiring you and buying your stuff, increasing your blog traffic and profits. But keep going back to where you are loved to fully put this concept into action.
Stop wasting time doing blogging solo. Nobody succeeds in a vacuum. Nobody succeeds trying to do it all themselves because 50 beats 1. 50 blogging buddies beat the effort of your singular blogging effort. 50 blogging buddies completely eclipse the effort of your singular blogging effort. Teamwork makes the dream work and going solo makes the dream disappear. No one succeeds solo because you vanish compared to the efforts of connected, networked bloggers with huge, loyal blogging tribes. Imagine you publish a post and tweet it without building your friend network. Nothing happens. No one knows you. But imagine publishing a post and tweeting it after building a huge, loyal blogging buddy network. Blogging buddies tweet your new blog post every 10 minutes through each blogging buddy account. Networking wins again! But only because you generously served fellow bloggers and expected nothing. This is the key. This is the difference-maker.
