5 Perfectly-Free Gifts for a Blogger
It’s Monday, May 9th and you’re thinking to yourself, “OMG, I forgot to get Xavia something for her birthday!” :-O No worries, Mother’s Day was yesterday, you were distracted, you’re tapped out from the beautiful bouquets and spa days you showered all mamas in your life with, it happens; I know you were thinking of me ;-). Lucky for you I’ve got 5 perfect gifts, not just for me but for any blogger, for any occasion; in under 5 minutes and for no money at all you can show some love that will be much appreciated.
Well, nowadays you can “react” too, but don’t underestimate the power of a like. Liking a blogger’s post doesn’t just boost their ego and add to the narcissism that is enveloping the world of social media, it actually increases how many people see the material. My friends may not be your friends but they can be; when you “Like” me your whole world can see. Best of all, likes take no time at all, “You get a like, you get a like…”:-)
If you’ve only got 5 seconds just drop a few likes, please and thank you, but if you want to give me an extra minute or two, because I’m the birthday girl 😉 , leave a comment. We bloggers like them on social media, we LOVE them when you leave them on our actual blog page! We’re growing with each post and your feedback is so awesome, it lets us know what we’re doing right, what, maybe, we should do a little less of, and it lets us know who’s eyes are out there so we can connect with our readers. After all, a blog without an audience is pretty much just a diary. :-\
You can also give the gift that keeps on giving, share your blogger with your friends. Likes and comments will reach your buddies indirectly but nothing says love quite like a direct share. If there’s a post that encourages or inspires you there’s a chance there’s someone else who may need that boost; they get a pick me up, I (your friendly neighborhood mama blogger) get a new reader, and you get that gooey feeling of giving, win/win/win 😉 Go on, share; this post, another or the whole page!
Maybe you’re a little shy, not quite ready to commit to a whole comment, or maybe you’re a closet Messiful Mama, not sure if you want anyone to know you #confessthemess. Well it only takes a second to just visit the blog and take a peek. You don’t have to hang the whole day, just stop by for a quick hello; every visitor equals traffic and we love traffic!
Nothing says I love you, quite like subscribing to your favorite blog. It’s kinda like a real “I love you” without all the pressure because you can unsubscribe at any moment. You don’t have to say it just because it’s my birthday, but if you happen to befall my charm and find yourself in love it’s the perfect way to stay in the loop for all things Messiful! (Just scroll to the bottom of the page 😉 )
*I also love all things dark chocolate, orchids, quiet time, curly hair products, and printed duct tape… but no pressure 😉
These are great reminders of little ways that our loved ones can show us blogger support. This is really the best free gift I can get
Thanks Michelle. It’s always nice to let people know of little ways they can support because I don’t think most people know. I know you stopped by a while ago (I had a major comment spam issue for a while) but I appreciate you taking the time, thank you! 🙂
You are totally spot on! These really are little things that we do love to see. The idea that we were able to connect is huge! I have to say I love you ending sentence haha, so great. Thanks so much for sharing!!
Hi Jenn, thanks for taking the time to check it out. Your comment got lost in a spam attack my page underwent, so sorry my reply is months late. Luckily these tips are kinda timeless, so they always apply 🙂
Ahhh…these ARE the best gifts you can give any blogger! I came here expecting a totally different kind of post, but love the list you put together!
My apologies, my site got flooded with thousands of spam comments so yours got completely lost in the sauce. Thanks for stopping by, ages ago, I installed a good spam blocker so I should be good 😉
Love these! Sharing this on my FB page now.
Thanks Melissa! 🙂 If people only knew, it is so easy to gift a blogger. We’re a pretty grateful crowd!
