As I’m starting to write more often, I wanted to try to network a bit better, so last night I applied to Top Mommy Blogs and am please to say I’m in, I got accepted. Which was nice.
It’s a network of Mommy (Mummy) blogs which uses a referral sort of system to decide which blogs are most popular, rather than have the most followers. I’m not expecting to be number 1, or even top 10 but what I am trying to do is get my blog to a wide audience. Ok, ok, I accept people don’t always want to read my personal issues and rants, but my saddest posts get the most traffic actually. Top Mommy blogs works really simply, they just count the number of times a person clicks through from members blogs, I won’t go on and on about it. But there will be a little button in my sidebar if anyone wants to “thank” me for a post they liked reading.
As well as TMB I’ve also popped Julie’s Notebook on to a few directories and blogging groups. I miss the following I had on my old blogger blog, but it was a childish name and style I think. Although I transferred all my old posts from MummysRandomBlog I still cringe at the quality of some of my old posts. I don’t want to delete them though! They remind me to try harder, write better, and be myself.
