Some bloggers latch onto me like a leech. I appreciate the love. I feel humbled by their admiration. But things often go South. Fast.
I may even help these bloggers for free. Cool. But after the help, latching on to me for more help only creates an uncomfortable situation. We live in abundance. You and I can access millions of bloggers for networking, befriending and co-creating. Abundance exists. Why attach to one blogger amid a universe of bloggers, numbering in the tens of millions? At best, you become a blogging outcast. At worst, your credibility dissolves, along with your blogging reputation.
I do respect persistence. I dig being tenacious. But anyone who tries to get my help from desperate energies simply influences me to block them on social media. Why chase me when I cannot help you if 50,000 other pro bloggers sit right before your very eyes?
Develop an abundance mindset. Move on to the next one. I never attach to anyone online because we sit among a sea of bloggers, readers and heck, anyone interested in our blogging niche.
Reach out to a blogger. Admire their pro status. But let go every pro you pitch-ask the split second after emailing or messaging these individuals. Let them go to move on to the next professional. This is the smart way to be cool, calm and detached about it all.
Let go one blogger to move on to 1000 bloggers. Never make blogging a numbers game. But do make blogging a study in abundance. Help people freely to make as many friends as humanly possible. Then, all those influential bloggers await in your cyber corner, being willing to help you freely based on your generous service.
Get connected through your generosity. Never depend on a single blogger because a large, loyal army of bloggers awaits you, simply being in your cyber corner. Not only does it feel good to build your blogger buddy network by being generous. The benefits of connecting with and befriending pro bloggers far outweighs any networking work you need to inject into the blogging process.
I spend a decent chunk of my blogging day networking. Networking generously connected me with a high volume of blogging buddies. Naturally, these blogging buddies promote me around the clock. Adding a passive element to my blogging business is well worth the time and energy I put into networking freely every single day.
Stop attaching to 1 blogger. Help 10 bloggers freely.
Comment genuinely on blogs. Promote bloggers on social media. Promote bloggers on your blog. Put in the time to network genuinely. Serve people. Ask for nothing in return. Expect nothing in return. Something neat happens; more and more of these bloggers befriend you. Blogging buddies offer you help – or flat out help you – before you reach out to them or even bother attaching to them. Blogging buddies are like that; you won’t even need to ask for help when these pro’s pros are in your corner.
But being generous opens the door for building a large, loyal blogger network. Stop looking for blogging hand outs. Start lending a blogging hand. Big difference between the two. Versus latching on to one blogger, get super busy helping as many bloggers as possible from a relaxed, chill energy.
Giving freely is the smart way to receive easily.
Keep giving and not only will help flow your way, but you will be unattached to any of your blogging buddies.
This is a neat benefit of building your blogger buddy network.
