Ask the blogger: how did you get so many followers?


The Cat's Write

I went out on a limb and contacted some of my greatest blogging idols to see if a few of them might like to lend us some of their wisdom in response to the one question we’re all thinking about: how the hell did you get so many followers?

To be honest, I wasn’t sure I’d get many replies. Surely these bloggers (with their thousands of followers) are far too busy to answer the many questions, emails and comments they must get every day? Turns out I completely underestimated how LEGEN – wait for it… no really you have to wait for it… sorry just a little longer – DARY these bloggers really are. Because who would answer an email from a random quote-seeking newbie like me?

Legends. That’s who.

    Many of them mentioned the importance of connecting with other bloggers on their website as well as others. We moderate half a dozen blogs and can confirm that that much is true when it comes to building a following.

    Great content is also necessary, but we’ve seen blogs that will leave you scratching your head with sizeable followings. Sometimes people just find their niche and work that area very well.

      In truth, I have a small circle that respond to my poetry. The rest may respond…depending on how popular the poetry subject is. Most do seem to like my reblogged content—with a select…maybe as many as 50 (?) group who specifically read and react to my poetry or others I share. A lot of good wisdom in your post. Thank you for responding so quickly and with consideration of my comments!

        You’re welcome.

        Poetry is a very personal thing, and very short, which is often why it won’t draw a large audience. But if you take the time to network with other poets, that could change. We’ve seen poetry accounts with poems getting hundreds of likes!

        As our senior business consultant often says, “It’s who you know!”

        All the best, and thanks for chatting with us! 😄
