Beginners Frustration

OK. So I am new at this as you can see, but here is my frustration. I am having trouble connecting with people. I don't know how to get my name out there. So if you have any advice or comments, help a guy out. Thanks and Roll Tide Roll!!!!

I'm a new follower, over from TBA! Best advice I can give is to follow other blogs and comment to their posts with the link to your blog...folks will come!!!

I am also a recent blogger (created my blog in August) and I feel the same frustration. I've tried to get my blog out through TBA's freebie fridays which definitely gets me viewers. Still having trouble with getting followers though. But, hopefully things will get better eventually! Good luck to you too! :)

I can relate. I'm a new blogger as well (started in October). Follow and communicate with other bloggers leaving your link behind. Check out and participate in linky parties. It helps.

Welcome to blogging. I haven't had the time to put into getting lots of followers yet, even though I've been around since last spring. The things I've noticed that have helped is linky parties and commenting on other blogs. I just started following you and wish you luck.

Hi Jessie,
Thanks for hoppin' by my blog and linking up to the Fall Linky Party. I am your newest follower. It is great to see another guy join the blogging world. My advice is to make sure you have a picture with each post, join Pinterest, and pin away! That will get you tons of new blog views. Keep joining Linky parties when you can too!

Brian

Thanks Pam! I guess the only thing we can do is to keep putting ourselves out there. I followed you so let's just keep at it. Goodluck!!!

jessie vassar said...

Thanks Jacqui! I did my first linky party today. All this stuff gets kind of confusing, but I think I will get there.

Thanks and I am headed your way now!

jessie vassar said...

Thanks and likewise. We are definately a rare breed!What's the link to your blog and I'll start following you as well?

jessie vassar said...

Thanks Joell. I can definately see where this can be time consuming. I'm headed to your blog now.

Thanks for the advice Brian. I am a member on pinterest but do not use it like I should.

I am new at this too! I find that I get a lot of traffic when I pin my blog posts (with a freebie of course) to pinterest! Of course I found your blog through TBA's post of FB. I am now following your blog! Good luck!

Thanks Tamara! I will be checking that link out for sure. One thing that I have noticed so far is that everyone is so nice and supportive. I am learning why they call it a blogging "community."

jessie vassar said...

Thanks Hilary!

jessie vassar said...

Hey I tried to open your blog and it didn't work. Suggestions?

Jacqui said...

Good! Thanks for following me. BTW, there is a way to set it up so that when people click on your name your blog is available. I don't think it's that way now. It will make it a lot easier for people to find you.

For sure!! It was NUTS!!!

Take a look at www.AutismEducators.com. We have been having a lot of traffic BUYING, but not many people listing their activities and lessons since we are a fairly new site. When you go to the site you can click on the link on the front page which takes you to the "Sellers Page". You'll see all of the info there. Happy selling!

Thanks!
