If you are someone who uses chat programs such as AIM, ICQ, Yahoo messenger, MSN, or Google talk and have a lot of online friends, it can be a great way to get people to read your blog and to leave comments on it.
As it is with your signature on your email, you don’t want to just send an instant message to people everytime you update your blog. You also don’t want to simply send a message to someone asking to read your blog.
For someone who has been on your friend’s list for a while, you can be less formal of course, but you want to be polite when you talk to people who you may have not talked to in a while or someone who is new.
Use your own judgment when you are chatting with people about your blog. If it’s someone that you haven’t talked to in a while, and someone asks you what you have been up to, you can point them to your blog so that they know what is going on with you.
Some blogs, like LiveJournal, have their own messaging program, so that’s also another good way to advertise
Be certain that you don’t send someone a message through only to advertise your blog. It’s more polite to say something about their blog first, and then tell them about your blog.
If you have a common interest, it’s a good icebreaker and it will give you something to talk about.[mailerlite_form form_id=2]
Hi, I’m Stefania – Aka the Techy Girl! I’ve been building WordPress websites since they revolutionized how we create beautiful, functional, affordable websites. I started building websites back in the day when we had to hand write the code!!!! WordPress is much easier. Web design started as a hobby of mine and in 2010 I turned it into my passion and full-time business. When I work on a website, it’s because I love working on websites. I teach people how to use their websites and make them beautiful and functional through my courses and online sessions. If you need help or have questions, I would love to chat!
I help people create websites that work for them! I work with entrepreneurs, coaches, and bloggers who are frustrated by technology by teaching the tech and making it easy. I believe creating a website should be easy, affordable and hassle-free. I believe your website should work for you. Every website has a purpose. I want to help you find and develop that purpose. Your website should be beautiful. It should be a reflection of your most beautiful self. Learn more about me here
