Bloggers work hard!
We pour so much love and time into the posts we write so it feels good when people acknowledge our work.
There’s so much more to blogging than just writing posts and hitting publish. You guys get to see the finished product but sometimes what goes on behind the scenes isn’t always smooth sailing.
After putting so much love into your work, whatever it may be, it’s always a wonderful feeling when you see the fruits of your labour and it’s the same for bloggers.
When you come across a post you like or if you have a blogger whose work you love ad think is awesome, this is how you can support them:
How To Support The Bloggers You Love
Like & Share their posts
If you see something you love or enjoyed reading, then give it a “thumbs up”.
If you enjoyed it then surely others might too so share it!
Share it on your social media with a nice note about this awesome post you just enjoyed reading and encourage others to check it out too.
Subscribe To Their Newsletter
Subscribe to their newsletter so that you stay updated on the latest posts on their blogs.

Follow Them On Social Media
If you like a blogger’s work you should follow them on social media.
This will allow you to see a different side of them and actively engage with them.
Like their Facebook pages, repin their Pinterest content and follow them on their other social media platforms so that you can interact with them there. On Twitter, like and retweet posts you’ve liked. This will help your followers to find their pages as well and help grow your favourite blogger’s audience.
Oh, and subscribe to their YouTube channels and check out any other work they’re producing.
Read Their Content
Sure views are nice but it means so much to us bloggers when you actually take the time to read our content.
Don’t just read one post and leave, take your time and find other posts you might like to like and comment on. Spending time on sites and going through blog pages means so much to bloggers as it lowers our bounce rates.
This will allow you to leave comments that actually add to the conversation; which brings us to my next point…
Leave A Comment
As bloggers, we love it when you engage with us and share your thoughts on posts. If you liked a post, let us know in the comments section. What did you like about it? Do you agree or disagree with certain points?
Commenting is a form of engagement, just be sure to be respectful when expressing your thoughts and opinions.
If you can’t leave a comment on the actual post, you can just like it or tell the blogger via social media what you thought of their blog post.
I know that on this blog you can’t comment unless you’re a member or using the same platform so I’ve received many messages from readers about how they want to leave a comment but can’t.
Right now, that’s something I can’t do anything about until I can afford a premium account but believe me just someone liking my post is more than enough for me.
If Buying Items Mentioned In Posts, Use Their Affiliate Links
Bloggers make money as affiliates so why not support your favourite bloggers while also putting a little cash in their pockets? It doesn’t cost you any extra!
Buy Their Merch and Products, Upload Photos of Yourself using them & tag them
This is a great way to show your support and spread the word about products you love to your own audience.
If you’re a person with a huge social media following and influence, you can do so much to help your favourite bloggers grow by just talking about and tagging them in your posts. Post pictures of yourself with their merch, and who knows, a great mutually beneficial partnership could brew.
Send a Thoughtful Email
We don’t just give you our emails for work purposes only, if you have a nice thoughtful message you’d like to send to your favourite blogger in a show of support then drop them an email.
It would mean so much to them!
Talk To Your Friends & Family About The Amazing Blog You Found
Discovered a new blog whose content you enjoy? Why not tell your friends and family about it?
You’ll be showing your support by spreading the word and if they like it too, you’ll have helped your fave blogger gain more followers!
Never underestimate the power of word-of-mouth.
Give Them A Tip
Have you ever seen the Ko-fi or “buy me a coffee” icon on the blog you visit?
These are a great way to support the bloggers you love. You can tip them for the price of coffee if you love their content and help them earn an income from their sites.
