Joining Blog Hops

Postby Shellyann36 » 27 Oct 2017, 14:03

I started my blog a few years ago and then I got bogged down with life and my twins. I still have the blog but I just stopped maintaining it. The twins are finally in school and I would like bring my blog back to life. This brings the matter of traffic. In the past, I joined so many blog hops I felt like a frog. I don't think they really helped my blog but they certainly helped all of the blogs I visited and posted on. For me, it was very time consuming to read the blogs and come up with a quality post. Some blog hops had 50 to 100 blogs to post on. No matter what, I always felt as if I did not get much from the blog hops as far as traffic and comments but I certainly put in the extra effort to help other bloggers.

If you are a blogger, do you take part in blog hops? If you do, do you feel as if they help your blog as far as traffic and comments go?

Most blogs automatically wanted your email and blog address/web address automatically. I did notice that quite a few of the blog hops specifically state that you cannot leave a link with the comment.

It like a platform where you find linking up with others, it in a way helps to make you advertise your blog.

@joemael @ahmedo24 is exactly right. A few people who own a blog get together and create these blog hops that others can sign up for. Each blog on the list is supposed to get a visit and a comment from the rest of the bloggers on the list. It is to generate traffic and comments. It did not work out so well for me.

That's interesting and although my blog is about to turn 1, I'd never heard of those LOL It'd be interesting to see how well they work. In your opinion @Shellyann36, why didn't they work for you? Any you'd recommend? Someone has previously come up with the idea of FC bloggers doing something similar, but it's never taken off. I'll be watching this thread.

It really did not pan out that well for me. I visited numerous blogs and posted but even though I got visitors, I did not get that much content from the bloggers that visited me. The best way to find a hop is to google blog hop. I am sure numerous blog hops will show up for you. It would be nice if we could do something similar here on the forum.

You need only one blog platform, a domain and hosting plan to bring your blog alive as your own website.

Thanks for your feedback :) It really helps because I wouldn't want to waste time on something that's very likely to flop. If I'm being honest, I find some of these 'fantastic' social media platforms useless when it comes to promoting blogs. I mean, take Google+ for instance; a lot of people have said it's worked wonders for them. BUT it's been useless for me :(

Never heard of Blog Hops. Visitors are the most common worries of bloggers. There are so many ways to get visitors find marketplace like on Beer Money Forums and Postloop.
