The other day while spending time on a work-at-home forum, I came across a link to great site that helps increase blog traffic. Maybe you've heard of it - The Blog Frog.
Strange name, I know. But how could I not hop over and check it out? (Groan...)
I'll admit, at first the site was a bit intimidating. But the more I browse, the more I like it. As with many sites nowadays, you can "follow" bloggers and join communities by searching specific keywords. I have noticed that there are not a lot of "Christian Fiction" communities, so it might be fun if some of us started a community specifically for Christian fiction authors. Once you join, you can also "jump in" (another groan...) to discussions about any topic you choose.
Since joining, I've had several members "follow" me. That means that every time I blog, my post shows up on their home page, giving them the perfect opportunity to "leap over" (it's getting old, isn't it?) and take a look. My traffic has jump--er, increased by leaps and bounds (man, I just can't stop!) Seriously, just this week alone, I've gotten at least 60 more hits than a typical week.
Needless to say, it's working. And it's kinda fun, too. Which is why I'm passing the link along to you. Click on the widget below to check it out. Be sure to look me up. I haven't figured it all out yet, so if you're a current member and have any tips to "fly" past me (sorry...couldn't resist one more), please let me know.
