Grow Your Blog Party!

Good morning!! I am so excited to be co-hosting this week’s Grow Your Blog Networking Party!! 


Let’s be friends: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Bloglovin’, Instagram Instagram

Be sure to visit the Important Links page for important blogging information!

Are you ready to network?

We have a new feature this week. We are going to feature one blogger per week. Which means if you link with us this week, you could be featured next week! .

My feature blogger that linked with Grow Your Blog Last week is

Alli from The Cupcake Diaries

The Cupcake Diaries isn’t just about cupcakes — Alli features all sorts of amazing recipes. Go check her out. Seriously. Like, now. Be sure to come back, but go.

We asked you last week what your opinion ison Blog Hops/Networking Link ups. The feedback I received was positive, however, the actual links and click throughs are declining. Hopefully, those that are linking are meeting new blog friends and obtaining new followers. We plan to study the trends and link ups a few more weeks. Do you have suggestions how we can market GYP better to reach new bloggers?

The GYB Networking Party

Grow Your Blog

Joining me in hosting GYB is Deb from Cooking on the Front Burner, Tanya from Lemons for Lulu, and Julie from This Gal Cooks. We love hosting this networking opportunity each week. We also have four co-hosts joining in the fun.

What is the Grow Your Blog Networking Party all about? NETWORKING. Meeting new bloggers, finding new content to follow, building your readership. Why is blog networking great for you? Simply put, it increases readership and traffic to your blog. How do you network? Visit. Comment. Invite. Communicate. These are key to growing your blog.

Let’s meet your hosts and co-hosts. Please stop by, introduce and leave a meaningful, engaging comment with each host and co-host. I can guarantee that the hosts will reply to your comment and try to get to your blog to engage in conversation with you!

  • Follow and/or visit your hosts and co-hosts. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know you stopped by!
  • Link up the main page of your blog, not an individual post. You may link up your individual posts to Marvelous Mondays.
  • Visit and follow other bloggers
  • Leave engaging comments on the blogs that you visit.
  • Invite them to visit your blog. Leave the name of your blog in a comment. Please do not leave a link – Google is going to start viewing links as Spam and they will decrease page ranking of sites that are viewed to have a lot of Spam.
  • Communicate with them about what you like on their blog. Let them know you are interested in their blog.USE THEIR NAME! A simple “I’m so and so stopping by. I followed you please follow me.” just isn’t going to interest someone into visiting your blog. Sure, you can request a visit to your blog or a follow along but engage in some type of conversation first.
  • Place our party graphic on your page. It’s not required but it would be a pretty rad thing to do. You can get the graphic by copying and pasting the GYB graphic located in the beginning of this post.

    Hi Jenn!

    I followed you yesterday from the social soiree and just wanted to thank you for all of these awesome link up and networking events! I just started blogging this week and all of the information I’ve been getting from the different blogs and the chances to network and meet new bloggers is invaluable to me!

    I just saw your post about the lunch scavenger hunt and had to pin it to do with my little guy when he gets older! It looks like so much fun!!

    Thanks again!

      Thanks, Michelle! Link parties are a great way to get your stuff out there (I have a ton of them on my link parties page)! I’m a new follower of yours on all your social media and Bloglovin’. 🙂 I just started this blog in May, so I know how tough it is to get going. Sounds like you’re doing all the right stuff though! Good luck!
