Blogging Tips: Over 50 Places to Share Your Ideas

Are you a blogger who wants to increase your exposure and drive more readers to your site? Are you looking for ways to promote the awesome tutorials and posts you are sharing on your site?

 

One way to get new readers and share your amazing work is by participating in linky parties. Yes, it is a party. This is how I took my blogging traffic from 10,000 pageviews a month to 30,000 pageviews a month back in early 2011. This strategy still works to this day.

 

linky party strategies

Depending on the niche you write about, there are literally 10+ linky parties you could link up to ever day. You want to make a list of these parties and make note of the day and time their party goes live.

Sharing at Linky Parties:

  • Try as hard as you can to be the first 10-20 people to link up. This will help increase your clicks.
  • Use a good quality picture from your post to draw the reader in and encourage them to click on your post. There are likely to be 100+ links shared- make yours stand out.
  • When linking up, give it a title that is to the point, encourages readers to click and brings value.

Here are some of my favorite places to link up each week.

    I'm pretty sure you're now my new best friend. So excited to look through these blogs- I recognize some but not many. Thanks for sharing!

    Elizabeth-

    I am so glad this list is helpful! You can honestly get lost for hours searching for ideas on these sites.

    Enjoy!

    I have a fairly new party! It’s great because I have a fairly decent sized following and the linky is generally small so you get a lot of attention…it’s not one of those links with over 300 link ups where your link may have a difficult time getting noticed.

    My linky is every Wednesday…called It’s a Crafty World…and is over at myworldmadebyhand.blogspot.com
