Reasons to Network with Other Mom Bloggers

By Wendy Piersall, Heather B. Armstrong

To build a new mom blog, you need to network with other mom bloggers. Networking helps you find new readers, do cross promotions, build links, and find new opportunities.

Meeting new people can be challenging on its own, and not knowing the unwritten rules can make it even more intimidating. Blogs can’t get successful without the help of other blogs. It may sound strange, but there are few true competitors in the blogosphere.

While it seems obvious that you would want to know other bloggers, here are some of the reasons why networking with other bloggers is indispensable to building your blog:

  • Finding new readers: The best way to find new loyal readers is to be introduced to them by another blogger who has a loyal following. Getting links from other bloggers is extremely important on many levels.

  • Cross promotion: Bloggers frequently promote each other, so you’ll want to build relationships with people whom you can help and that can help you.

  • Building links: Getting links to your blog is extremely important in terms of getting found in the search engines. The more links you get, the higher your blog will appear in the search engine results pages.

  • Finding new opportunities: Brand representatives and potential advertisers are already aware of many established bloggers. These bloggers are in a great position to recommend others for opportunities that may not be a fit for their blog, or to spread the word about upcoming chances to participate in campaigns or events.
