Denise Wakeman, a smart, talented blogger I've had the pleasure of knowing for several years, offers this exciting way to make new friends with your blog. You do understand that making new friends increases traffic? And more traffic means more opportunity to monetize your blog? And more friends means more people to meet at BlogPaws! w00t!
Denise calls it, "Brag about your blog day."
Here's how it works...taken from Denise's Facebook page:
"It's Brag About Your Blog Day! Every month I invite you to post a link(s) to your blog. Tell us about your blog. Post the name and URL (include http:// so the link is active and we can click thru) on this Wall thread. Every month I find new blog gems and see a lot of possibilities for JVs (joint ventures) and guest posting opportunities. Go ahead...brag about your blog now!"
Isn't that a great idea? Imagine how many new pet bloggers and other folks you'd meet if you did that? How about if WE did it...on BlogPaws? How about if everyone joined in?
The beauty of it, beyond the fantastic blog hops we do here (with sincere thanks to Felissa Elfenbein, is that in a Brag About Your Blog Day program, you get to tell us in your own words what your blog is about. We get to meet you, and your pets, in a virtual discussion that is (a) more than 140 characters, (b) tells us exactly what you're about, and (c) showcases you to a whole lot of other folks, including visiting pet companies and brands.
Here are Denise's own words about this project, "Once again, these savvy bloggers are reaping the rewards with more visibility - shout outs of thanks and congratulations on Facebook and Twitter, comments on the original blog post, and related blog posts like this one which in the end drive more traffic and engagement on their sites.
What are you doing to boost the visibility of your blog?"
Who wants to take the first step... tag you're it! (you have to come back here and share, in the comments, so we can all play along...)
p.s. at first, I thought it was, "Brag About Your Dog"... which isn't bad, either...except for the cats - the Wabby gave me the cold shoulder, see above, when I was talking about it to Tom!
