Suggestions on How to Get People to Visit New Blogs

Morning everyone, I don't normally post on a Sunday but I have the time and I was asked an interesting question by one of my followers.  Hope you can add to my answer.....any suggestions welcome.  Sandy of Lycan Art Cards is new to blogging and would love to know how to get people over to see her blog.
Sandy has been visiting my blog and become a follower and I enjoy going over and seeing her wonderful creations like the above examples.

As for getting people to visit......I have suggested joining in Card Challenges.  As the people that organise these challenges will more often than not come and visit your blog and comment on your creation and thank you for entering.  You never know one of these people may like your blog and return as a follower.  Plus entering these challenges often other people entering follow the other entrants links.  I see how other people interpret a challenge.  So another group of people that might return as a follower.  The other good thing about challenges is that they definitely improve your cardmaking and get your thinking outside of the box.  So that is a plus in itself.

Just visiting other peoples blogs and leaving comments quite often have those people returning to your blog to leave a comment of thanks.....but they will more than likely look around your blog and maybe become a follower.

The other thing is patience!!!! and time.

Maybe regular postings...not meaning that you have to post everyday.  But if you post once a week.....on a Tuesday stick to it and people know when to visit.

Any other ideas?


  1. 2 lovely cards, we've both got crafty today on opposite sides of the world. That's what I love about pc's and blogging, miles are no problem. My Dad lives in Thailand and has lots of Ozzie mates.

  2. Hi Merry, I think you have it all covered in your advice. Just what I would say myself! Ruth x

  3. Merry, I think you have mentioned everything I would have suggested :) Trust in word of mouth - it won't happen overnight, but it will happen ;)

    Yeah just taking part in challenges, going to blogs and commententing etc... having a great friend who can let everyone know about their blog like you've done!!!

  5. Thank you so much for your help and advice. I love the idea of blogging and making friends. It's been kinda lonely since I was first diagnosed with cancer. Now that I am better, Im looking forward to making lots of friends, and creating better cards.
