Keep reading to learn all about this handy platform and how it can be used to gain new blog readers!
What is Bloglovin’?
Bloglovin’ is a social media platform that allows users to read, organize and discover their favorite blogs on mobile and on desktop. You can register a new account or create an account with Facebook.
How to Make the Most of Bloglovin’
Once you’ve created a Bloglovin’ account, there are a few things you can do to make the most out of the tool. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you grow your account:
When you register your blog, be sure to categorize your account so you have better chances of reaching your ideal target audience. You can tag things like DIY, travel, design, beauty, etc. The higher up you rank in the categories means more views and more likely to be featured on the Explore page, which means more views on your blog which means more followers! Woo!
Include BL in your social media bios, and also include it with your social media icons at the end of posts, etc.
Add a BL link at the end of each post…the more people that see the link are more likely to click on it and in turn you will get more followers.
Once you have a BL, be active! Give a little to get a little, ya know? Your posts will be more prominent the more people like and share, etc.
If you *really* want to make a move on getting your BL following up, make a post promoting BL on your own site, then tag your BL account so your users can follow you once the post goes live. The more exposure and promotion, the more likely your chances of growth.
Install the Bloglovin’ widget on your blog! Learn how to do so here.
Once you’ve created an account, be sure to “claim” your blog, so other users can start following you!
Other Things to Consider
When it comes to the appearance of your Bloglovin’ feed, there are a few things to keep in mind. The structure of Bloglovin’ pulls the first few sentences of your blog into a preview so make sure that writing is clear, concise and captivating! Also, it’s so important to choose a great featured image for your posts. We are visual consumers now more than ever, so it’s important to have pictures that draw users in!
