I had a bit of verbal diarrhea and asked about this on Twitter and got a really positive response so I thought I’d write a little post and see who would be interested in getting on board. Basically I was thinking that, in a kind of supportive way, the Irish blogging community would sign up to make an extra effort supporting each other with an aim on reading and commenting on each other’s blogs in a more active way. The point is, as a collective group, we’re very powerful and I think we should be fueling each other with that. What I’m trying to do with this initiative is show that we’re not in competition with each other, we’re actually each other’s allies in the blogging world.
Now I’m pretty active myself with this but I easily miss out a load of Irish beauty blogs and sometimes I read and don’t comment at all. Before I started a beauty blog myself, I never once commented on a post regardless of how much I liked it but blogging has made me realise that an extra 20 seconds of my time means a huge amount to the person who has taken the time to write about something. So I thought it could be a nice way of giving support, opinions and even pointers if you so feel inclined. Now just to point out, during this, for example, if I’m making an effort to read and comment on your blog and you don’t actually ever want to read my blog, you shouldn’t feel obliged to do so. Similarly if you read a post on a blog you like but have no interest in the topic matter, you also shouldn’t feel obligated to comment. This is of course, only for blogs and/or you enjoy with the emphasis on giving them an extra boost and showing some blogger love. And of course, this isn’t just about Irish beauty blogs, it’s about all blogs.
If you are interested, I’d love to start this up next week and get the ball rolling so if you are interested please let me know in the comments section and also leave your blog address so everyone can see it and make sure they give it a little visit! All I ask is that if you get involved, you make an effort to read more and comment more on the blogs that get involved, so if everyone does it I we could get a great network of support in place. Thanks girls (and guys) and if you’ve any suggestions on what way to work this etc. or just want to voice your mind, below is the place to do it!
All I ask is that you leave your website address below and if you’re really getting involved, please do make the effort and not just reap the rewards!! Thanks a mill girls and if you’re on board everyone start doing this from Monday please:)
