I just started my own blog, and I know I can’t advertise it on the boards, but how do you build up a blog fan base? Where could I advertise something like this? The blog is all about planning a kick-ass wedding on a budget. Advice from those of you with some experience would be awesome! 🙂

Post a link under your profile. =)

Every month there’s a Share Your Blog thread posted on top of main Boards page. It usually goes up the first of the month or soon after. You can post a link to your blog there. There should be an August one up next week. Check the beehive section for the old share your blog threads.

Write write write. Write good stuff. In your own voice. Make it entertaining and informative. And don’t forget to include pictures. Pictures draw people in if they’re related to your post.
Then, start branching out. Make friends with other wedding bloggers and leave comments on their blogs. Make sure the comments are genuine, stay on the topic and add value to the post in some way. Avoid stuff like: “Great post. Now check out my blog.”
It also wouldn’t hurt to make a Twitter account that’s linked to your blog and vice versa. And I second the previous poster on adding a link to the “Share Your Blog” thread.
Do all of these things and you’ll build your readership organically. It takes some time, but it’s worth the effort.
Also… I went to your Weddingbee profile and noticed that you haven’t posted your blog link yet. Feel free to private message me your link, ’cause I’d love to check it out! 🙂
