This Website Wednesday is for all you bloggers out there. One of the biggest challenges in the blogging world is driving traffic to your site and getting comments. Both of those things increase the chances that your blog will stay around for awhile! Without an audience, who are you writing for? (Some people write for themselves, as a journal, or just for friends/family– I totally get that! This is for folks to are trying to reach a larger population).
So what’s the secret? Well, it’s in the sauce! The Secret is in the Sauce (SITS) is a forum to comment and be commented upon by other bloggers. Each day they feature a new blog, and all the SITS-tahs go there to check it out and comment. The point is hopefully you’ll like the featured blog and stick around for awhile. They also post blog tips, and each Saturday have a blog giveaway linky to hundreds of online giveaways. In other words, this is a blogger’s best friend!
I haven’t asked to be featured yet, as I would like to make sure my content is really good before doing so. For now, I’m enjoying exploring other blogs and having people stop over and explore mine. I guess if I only had one suggestion for the site it would be to include an online forum so bloggers could ask questions and post tips/tricks in a message board format. Often I have a burning question about something blog related and would love to ask the blogging community at large. It would be great to have a place to share interesting ideas and content related items, too.
Just remember, every time you see this:
