To follow?

Everyday I spend hours reading blogs by amazing women and writers that I've come across online. I truly cherish the websites I've found and the online community it's created. While it gives me tons to read, it also gives me a way to support those women I know are working hard and striving to put out their very best just like me.

On my blog hop today I came across an article originally from Casey Leigh that was re-posted by a newer blog that I follow A Girl in Transit that I thought I'd share with all of you. So without further ado:

*This post is for people who read their favorite blogs daily via facebook, twitter, other people's "blog rolls" or maybe just look them up daily but aren't actually following.

I have had a lot of people tell me that they like reading my blog or a certain blog but don't know how to "follow" or maybe are unsure of what "following" a blog is. So here ya go...

What is Following?
If you have a favorite blog and want to let the author and readers know that you are a fan... you can do that by "following" their blog. 
I think it is a nice way to say we "support" you and what you have to say! 

You do not need to have a blog to follow one. So following isn't just for bloggers, it's also designed to make it easier for readers to keep tabs on their favorite blogs.

Also, you can choose to follow publicly or privately.

So select how you'd like to follow the blog, then click the "Follow this blog" button.

It is that simple, you are now a follower of the blog! If you elected to follow the blog publicly, your profile picture will be displayed on the blog with a link to your Blogger profile.

That's it :). Just a little fyi !

If you have a number of blogs you enjoy, go follow will mean a lot to those writing them, a good way to send support their way.

Also, if you follow a blog that you think others would benefit from, you should post about it...share the love. Even if you don't know the author personally, and possibly have never even commented on their blog never know who you will be blessing/ helping!



  1. This is great advise, many people are unaware of the difference it makes. It gives us all reason to keep writing!

    btw, I will be writing another article soon so I'll keep you posted.

    Oh, and for baby shower ideas, have you read my post on the shower I threw?


    Thanks for the support!

  2. I like this! It's so true too, I get so excited when I get a new follower. It feels so good to think 'hey, someone actually wants to hear what I have to say'. Comments too, I read every single comment I get :)
