Followers

I have been working my fingers to the bone trying to get followers, I went to a site called the Mom Bloggers Club, I am following well over a hundred people, and out of all of them only two are following me. It gets to be really overwhelming and sometimes I want to throw my hands in the air and say forget about it, if someone reads or follows my blog then good, and if they don't well I will just keep posting, bloging, posting, and blogging!!!
If anyone has any helpful hints on how to get more traffic to my blog, just leave me a comment. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated;)

Hi Thanks for following me and I'm following back! Don't lose hope. It takes a lot of time and energy to build up your community. MBC is a good place to start. Have your joined the "Under 100 Followers Club" there? Keep up the good work!

Sorry to hear that. I'm following from MBC. It helps to leave comments to people know you followed. Maybe you are already doing that, but I know for myself that I can't keep track of new followers anymore. If someone comes to my page, it often readjusts the photos and it's hard to tell if someone is new.

But if someone comments telling me they are from MBC,I always follow back.

I agree with Angela, once a blog gets a high number of followers it is just about impossible to keep following everyone who follows you. But I almost always follow people who regularly comment at my blog. I would suggest not trying to comment on hundreds of blogs but find the ones most similar to yours--ones that you really enjoy and ones that have similar content as yours. If your blog has good content it will naturally grow by word of mouth. Good luck.

Hi I am from MBC! Most of us really try to get to the list every coupple of days although there are some girls towards the beginning who do not anymore. I always find it helpful to comment if I am following so that people can find their way back to my site! I am now following you and you can find me at www.mommywords.com. Please let me know if you are following! I can never see if anyone is! I am at www.mommywords.com
