Whether they are doing Blogmas or they are posting Christmas content, as bloggers we know now more than ever that we need your support. No matter the time of year or season, we are always striving to create good content for our websites. Theres something about Christmas content though that requires that extra level of research and time put into the posts.
There are alot of bloggers out there who have spend countless days and nights preparing for Blogmas and December. It took me nearly 2 months to write all of my 25 Blogmas posts. Some bloggers depend on their blogs for their income, and with that extra time they’re putting in, its up to us to make sure we are supporting where we can.
So for todays post, I thought why not share some ways you can support bloggers during this Christmas season. Of course these tips can be used throughout the year too, but it’s important to have a focus on the Christmas season. Because this is blogmas after all!
DO THE USUAL
The usual is what you normally do. Liking posts, commenting, sharing and re-blogging etc. Don’t stop at Christmas, keep it going. I know it can be overwhelming trying to keep up with so much Christmas content, but I cant stress enough how it’s so important to bloggers to end the year on a high.
As I have mentioned, alot of us have taken so much time and effort to get the content ready for December and have probably sacrificed alot of time to get it done. So the least we can do is show love to them and let them know were enjoying their content. As a blogger I really appreciate being told that my readers like my content or that its helped them in any way, it gives me a boost to keep going!
LEND A HELPING HAND
Tis the season to help others! I always say this but as bloggers we are a team. How can we be in competition with one another if were playing for the same side? As a new blogger I remember seeking advice and help from other bloggers and found it was so important at the beginning of my journey to create those connections.
I am so happy to help other bloggers, and even encourage people to seek advice from me. I’m in no means an expert but I try to help when I can. Lend a helping hand, or even ask if a blogger needs help even if they haven’t asked you. Its such a great way to show kindness to one other.
USE SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media is such a great tool to use when you are wanting to share something with alot of people. I often use social media as a opportunity to share other blogs I’m loving. Here are some ideas on how you can use social media to help promote and support other bloggers:
– Do Instagram lives with other bloggers
– Share others content on your story
– Interact with their stories and posts
– Comment, share and like their posts
INCLUDE THEIR LINKS ON YOUR BLOG
One thing I really love doing is helping other bloggers promote their blog. You can do this through may different ways, including sharing their blog on your blog. Prehaps do a round up of your favourite bloggers of the year or share some of your favourite blog posts on your blog too.
Anything you can do to help promote their pages will help alot. Often times bloggers are stressed and worried about various things, so showing that you’re loving their content and supporting them will help in the crazy Christmas rush.
How do you show support to fellow bloggers? And as a blogger, how do you like people showing support to you?
As I’m doing Blogmas this year, I realise how important it is for other bloggers to support one another. I know the hard work that goes behind it, and the planning and then the behind the scenes running of the blog. Which is why I wanted to share this post today.
