If you’ve ever wondered how online writers wind up with thousands of followers—the answer is easy: It’s you!

Sharing a blog is the same as book-referring. Click To Tweet

If a friend reads a book they think I’ll like, they tell me about it. Then I tell someone about it. Someone might have loaned me the first Michael Connelly book I ever read. I’ve since bought every one he’s written.

So it goes with my blog.

When it hits Facebook, if you “Share” it, then everyone connected to you sees it.

When you comment on the blog on my site, it increases the blog’s SEO visibility.

If it’s a business-related blog and you share it on LinkedIn, I get comments from connections, which spreads it more.

When you follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram…I always get new followers—which leads me to new, interesting people to follow.

It’s a slow process, but it works.

Thanks for pressing a Social Media button and sending me out into the world!
