Not going to lie – Blogging is hard work! For some of us, this isn’t our full-time gig either. So on top of running a house & working full time, any extra time is spent on Blogging!
Which, is our choice yes. But any support we can get is AMAZING.
Do you want to know HOW you can support Bloggers, whether they’re your reading material or colleagues? There are plenty of ways!

Do you see the little floating icons all around the page? That’s easy access for YOU to share. Whether you are sharing on your own social media platform or emailing to a friend, word of mouth is HUGE for us.
See a post you love? Share it! And/or Pin in it for later.
Use Affiliate Links
This is HUGE.
I will admit, I spend a significant amount of time shopping online, and I look for other blogger’s affiliate links because I prefer to use them while shopping.
- I sometimes get a discount when I use their links!
- They (we) get a small commission for every purchase.
- It is no additional cost to you, so WHY NOT!? You are getting what you planned to, and we get a little extra money. WIN WIN.
I have tips for using Affiliate links –
Bookmark the page for later. If it’s a product you will use at a later time, but don’t want to purchase now, this is perfect.
Ask! I will ask bloggers if they’re affiliated anywhere to have a guide, and there is no harm in asking. There are some companies and programs everyone is affiliated with, like Amazon, but you would be surprised with how many different companies have affiliates.
Let us know our content is relevant to you and you enjoyed it! I LOVE getting comments; even if they’re just a THANK YOU for something I shared. Or, in the case when I only talked about Books, that you added it because of my review.
To me, no comment is a bad comment.
Start a conversation
Like with commenting, I love getting emails! I encourage my email list to reply to me and chat. I love helping people, so if you have a question, or want someone to talk to, I’M YOUR GAL!
I love getting feedback, or any constructive criticism too. I have a habit of making some EPIC typos, and while I’m not asking you or any other reader to be my editor, a little “hey girl, you need to proofread again,” doesn’t hurt! (Of course, this could just be me. Some might not take lightly to that.)
Subscribe & Follow
Simple, but effective! Follow them! Subscribe to their email lists, and use WordPress Reader, Bloglovin, Feedly, or follow by email RSS. These are all free platforms you can use to keep up with THOUSANDS of blogs.
Bloglovin and WordPress are two daily sites for me, and I follow some by email. There are some blogs I love hearing about regularly, and some for just the emails.
