Ready to gain new followers? The party starts right now. It will be fast and fun. It’s like speed-dating for blog followers!
DROP a link to your blog in my comments and include a pitch that describes what you write about.
“Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride” is about my wild Colorado adventures. You’ll find photos, humor and what’s it like to be a Wild Rider who has faced a few challenges. “Bring it on, life!” is my mantra. http://susielindau.com
HOP to other blogs and check them out. Like what you see? Subscribe. Want them to know you came from the Drop and Hop Party? Leave a comment on one of their blog posts or come back here and comment on their pitch.
Blast this link out on Twitter and Facebook or whatever flavor social media you prefer. The more that participate, the more followers you will gain.
The freshest bakery has been flown in from France and the tables are laden with buffet-style brunch. The barista can make anything you like. The bar is always open.
My son, DJ KSmash, is in the house, so don’t forget to dance!
Thanks for stopping by the Wild Ride! I hope you’ll follow my blog.
So you’re a blogger and your stats are down, your regular commenters seem to be on vacation and your steady stream of followers has dried up to a trickle.
Two reasons why:
We’re all busy. There’s a lot of competition out there.
WP Engineers pulled the “You May Like” from alongside the “Blogs I Follow” in the Reader. This is the first crack down on Spam Following. There may be more to come. Lots of scalawags were abusing the system. Have you seen brand new bloggers with over a thousand likes on one post? I have. They “spam follow” thousands to get tons of views and follow-backs.
Start flapping your wings! It’s time to Use Me and Abuse Me, so fly to the Wild Ride and meet my friends. Come with ONE blog post and paste it in my comment section. Leave a one line teaser and then mingle or chirp away with the guests. Click on a few links and say “Howdy do!”
Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your nest. (Do turkeys have nests?)
Follow a few and they may follow your blog!
Bring one of your own posts. If you leave a friend’s, they may not come to party with us. It’s no fun to knock on a door and wait…and wait…and wait…It ruins the atmosphere.
Do not leave your link and fly off without clicking on a few. This is a major party foul.
Leave ONE link. Two will send you into my spam filter and that is always so embarrassing for both of us.
Have a blast meeting my friends. I am truly grateful for each one of them. They are the best in the blogosphere!
I roasted a turkey with all the sides and there’s a tofurkey for my vegetarian friends. This is the kick off to the holidays so grab a glass of cheer!
Are there any Wild Turkeys out there? I’m wild and out there. Another Use Me and Abuse Me Blog Hop is this Wednesday, November 19th. Make a note of it on your calendar and come back to the Wild Ride. It will be a feast for your wild turkey eyes!
On Wednesday morning, leave a link to ONE of your blog posts in my comment section. Add a short hook and then the fun will begin. Mingle with the other guests and check out their blogs and they’ll click back to yours. Pick up new subscribers!
The Wild Party will start at 6:00 AM Mountain Time. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes!
I had to share a photo of one of my favorite ghoulish costumes. I was going for ghostly bride and my sister, Patty, was the Grim Reaper. The funny thing about costumes, you forget you’re wearing tons of makeup!
It’s not to late to Use Me and Abuse Me at my Haunted Halloween Blog Party. See what it’s all about and leave a link HERE!
Happy Halloween! It’s time to Use Me and Abuse Me by digging up ONE link from your own blog and burying it in my comment section. Click on a few of them and maybe they’ll stalk you back at your haunt.
Make sure to bring a link to a particular story. Otherwise, they may arrive and not know where to look. You don’t want them to go INTO THE BASEMENT! or INTO THE ATTIC! I doubt they would take a shower, but DON’T GO IN THERE!
BEWARE! Only bring ONE link or you’ll end up in the Chamber of Spam. The vile smell of rot alone could make you ill. You don’t want your headstone to read, “I told you I was sick.”
IF YOU LEAVE A LINK, CLICK ON A FEW! No one likes a witch (or warlock), who fills her cape with goodies and then flies away on her broom.
Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back to your crypt.
I made some witch’s brew, (my Aunt Helga’s favorite recipe), and the eye of newt stew is bubbling. Help yourself to the deep-fried crow’s feet. The warty toad dip is especially tasty.
Tell your Facebook and Twitter friends. The more, the SCARIER!
