Is Your Blog Easy To Follow?
If you are a follower of this blog, then chances are that I have already clicked on your picture to try and follow you back, but surprisingly, many of you--even authors who I KNOW have great blogs out there--have no information on your blogger profile.
Take a moment to look at your profile there. If you don't have a working blog link listed under "Links" then your would-be fans, like me, can't find you!
Email, where art thou? More than once, I've had a winner of a giveaway that left no email in the comments, and who has no email listed on their profile. The result? I had to pick a different winner and they missed out!
Multiple and outdated links! Many of you who do have a link listed on your profile, have multiple, but outdated links. Several blogs even say "We moved! Go to our new location!" But it was YOUR blogger profile that sent me to the outdated link in the first place.
Repeat after me: Updated blogger profiles are good for me. Updated profiles help me win prizes. Updated profiles drive more followers to my blog.
*Virtual pat on the back* Excellent!
If you've never looked before, you might wonder what the links are under "Sites I've Joined." These are blogs you follow, but that information doesn't help me find your blog.
So, as your humble, would-be stalker/follower, I urge you to check and update your profile on blogger.
Did you do it? Were you surprised at what you found?
