Spreading the Word

I've been having a lot of fun with my blog recently.  It's been great to connect with other bloggers who are successful.  I've learned that there are many aspects I need to learn about, including marketing, that I'd never really thought about before.

What are some ways that you market your blog?  How do you get others to visit, become a follower and leave comments?  How do you get the word out about your blog?  I am always open to new ideas!

One thing I thought about was by putting my blog's name - Life Full of Laughter - on various useful items.  Then I could give those out to people as advertisement.  It might help to drive people to visit my site, which is the ultimate goal!  I found a great company that might be useful.  I am considering buying some Amsterdam custom pens to share with people.  What do you think?

Hello Lisa,
Interesting post. I only started Blogging in March of this year and have tried Ping sites, traffic exchanges, directories and sites to advertise one's blog like Expose Your Blog and Traffup. However what I have found most helpful are Blog Hops. Anyway I think you have some great ideas to promote your Blog. My best wishes to you.

Excellent question. Blog Hops are great, even if the other blogs are totally unrelated to yours it's still a great way to find people who like what you are posting. I also surf blogs that my followers are following and if I like them I sign up. I found you through my surfing efforts. It's free but a bit time consuming. Join some FaceBook groups for bloggers. I belong to 3 and pick up followers there also.

I'm now following you and look forward to future posts. I love your upbeat posts.

Regards, Mari

Such a pretty place you have. For me, I've noticed that when I write from my heart I get the best response and end up gaining another follower or two. I've only been at this since June so what the hell do I know! If you figure out THE secret, please share!

Joining voiceBoks was one of the best things I did to grow traffic. Also, using stumbleupon and doing blog hops. There are other groups, too - Social Moms, Bloggy Moms, etc.

I agree with Christine - VoiceBoks is a great site to help grow your blog. The pens aren't a bad idea either. I'm a new follower from the VoiceBoks Grow My GFC blog hop! Have a great day.
