Five Reasons You Need to Find New Blogs Today!
Sometimes blogging can put you into a routine, and while that may be productive, it can also end up hurting you in the long run. I decided not too long ago that I needed to find new blogs, and not just once, but every few days. It’s easy to just find the top blogs in a specific niche, if we take blogging for example, I’m sure most of you know Famous Bloggers, ProBlogger, Daily Blog Tips or CopyBlogger, but it’s not enough, you need to find new ones, and here’s why I feel this way.
My 5 Reasons to Find New Blogs Today!
1. Find a new blog for a new perspective
After a while of reading the same persons posts about a topic, it’s great to be able and to “hear” a new voice, whether the opinion about the subject be the same or not. I have a big interest in hockey, and used to read only a handful of blogs and it was always the same rumors and criticisms that came back, but then one day I decided I was fed up of hearing the same thing over and over, finding new blogs about hockey gave me a different perspective, some I had never even thought of before.
2. Find new blogs to comment on
When you head over to the big blogs, chances are you’ll see a lot of the same names over and over again in the comments, and that’s great to build a reputation, but that also means a lot of the readers are the same. If you find new pages to post comments on, you open up your exposure to new people, which could mean new visitors and customers for you. Also from an SEO standpoint, for those of you commenting for SEO purposes, this will add extra domains linking back to your website.
3. Find new blogs for ideas and inspiration
I have read almost every post on ProBlogger, Daily Blog Tips and CopyBlogger for the past 2 years, and I’ve learned a lot, but often times it’s nothing new, it’s the pros or the guest posters trying to please the pros. Meanwhile at the smaller blogs, I’m finding all kinds of ideas, I’m not sure if it’s because they have less experience, but they often seem to leave posts unfinished or with questions that I know the answers to, so this opens up the possibility of new blog post ideas for my own blog, or guest posts.
4. Find new blogs to guest post on
A little bit like my second point, this will allow you to find new readers, people that haven’t heard of you or what you offer. You can reach a whole new audience of people that can be potential subscribers or customers.
5. Find new blogs for networking opportunities
You may think I’m speaking of the same thing as my second and fourth points, but I’m not speaking about the networking opportunities that exist with the readers of the new blog you have found, but instead the blog owner themselves. Think about it, if you’re blogging about a certain niche and you go to the top people you will be able to learn from them, they will mentor you, you will buy the services or products you recommend and then you will thank them for it. Well, the exact opposite is true as well, if you mentor someone from a smaller blog in your niche, they will trust you, buy the services and products you recommend and thank you for it.
