Lately I’ve been thinking more about the reason why I first created this blog: to be able to connect with other photography lovers out there. And although I follow quite a lot of blogs and like posts every time I find the photos beautiful or the words interesting, I realized I rarely connect with the person on the other side. I hardly ever leave a comment – need to change that!
I’ve been wanting to find some new blogs to follow, not only nice photography ones but blogs with which I can relate on a more personal level.
I thought I would share how I look for new blogs
and also ask for any suggestions on how you do it!
Here’s how I search:
1- I browse the WordPress reader feed looking for posts tagged with words that match my interests – #photography #portraits #creative #switzerland – however the blogs showing up from that search are still very diverse. Sometimes I’m lucky and stumble upon a few that speak to me.
2- When I finish reading a post I really enjoyed, I check the comment section and click on other people’s to check out their blogs. If they took the time to leave a comment it’s because they’ve enjoyed the post as much as I have, so chances are I might enjoy their content too.
3- This weekend I tried a new thing and participated on a virtual “Meet & Greet”, it’s like a party in the comments section of a blog! The author will invite everyone to comment on that post: saying “hello”, leaving a link to your blog and a link to another blog you like. Then everyone browses each other’s links to discover new blogs.
So far I think option nr.2 is the most effective!
If you have any tips on how you search for new blogs to follow I would love to hear them 🙂
