Most people who write Blogs would like to increase the readership of their blogs, right? Right. And Scrapbooking bloggers are no different.
Well here’s a cool and, more importantly, easy way to get more exposure for your blog.
Install a BlogRush widget in your side bar and articles in your Blog’s RSS feed will appear in the widget on blogs all over the world. Without you having to do anything! If you’re wondering whether your blog has an RSS feed, I’m tipping the answer is “Yes,it does.” If you go to your blog home page and look at the end of the URL bar at the top of the screen you should see a tiny orange icon. Click that and you will be taken to your blog’s RSS URL.
Anyway back to the BlogRush Widget. This is a new gizmo just released for blogs. The idea is you install it in your sidebar and articles from blogs in the category you’ve nominated yourself for (I chose Hobbies. The next closest one would have been Art and Design) will appear in it. Readers who click on those links will open up a new window to view the articles on other blogs, but your blog will still stay open in their browser. The cool part is that your posts will be popping up in widgets on other peoples’ blogs who are in your category. The BlogRush Page has a video that explains how it all works better than me.
And if other bloggers decide to install the widget on their blogs and they click on your widget to sign up you will get ‘credits’ for them joining which translates into extra exposure for your blog. This is not a money thing! You do not need to lay down your credit card for anything. This is all about increasing the number of places that your blog posts can be seen and attracting fresh readers to your blog. Hopefully once they arrive there they will like what they see and become regular readers.
The thing that I particularly liked about this is that once you have installed the widget, you don’t have to do anything else. The widget will automatically get your posts and publish them. You don’t have to remember to submit anything. Easy Peasey. Just the thing for a busy scrapbooking blogger who doesn’t want to be having to remember stuff like this.
So there’s nothing to lose for you in this, and potentially a bunch of new readers to gain. I thought it was well worth trying out. So if you’re interested in giving it a go too, just pop over to www.blogrush.com and pick up your widget.
