Article by Wendy McCance

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about all of the wonderful people who stop by this blog.  I feel lucky to have incredible readers who will leave comments that inspire me with their stories and encourage me with praise about an article they enjoyed.  Many of these readers have been following from the early days well before I began self-hosting.  As I learned to blog, these people were right by my side sharing their experiences and rooting me on as my blog took shape.

Over the years, I have tried to show my appreciation with opportunities for other bloggers to get some good exposure.  No matter what I offer, I always feel like there is something else I can think of to do.

Several days ago, I offered bloggers the chance to get more traffic to their blog (you can read the post here) by leaving a link with a description of their blog on the Searching for the Happiness Facebook page.  What these bloggers were unaware of was how I was attempting to do even more to increase their link efforts.

I have been sorting through the list of bloggers and have stopped by most of the blogs.  I have to admit, there are some terrific blogs I hadn’t seen until those links were left.  I have been making sure to leave a comment when I stop by.  I also took the opportunity to share their latest blog article on Twitter (and if appropriate) LinkedIn.  Finally, I added these bloggers to my Pinterest board, Blogs I Follow in hopes of getting these bloggers even more exposure.

I would like to share some of the latest blog links that were left on the Facebook page. Please take a moment to stop by and support your fellow blogger.  There are some terrific blogs out there.

If you would like to add your link to the Facebook page, there is still time. Just go to the Facebook page and scroll down to the Opportunity for Bloggers.  Leave a description of your blog with the link.  Please take a moment and “Like” our page when you stop by.

Finally, my wish is that I can see other blogs develop and hear about some amazing success stories.  Everyone should have an opportunity to shine and I would love to be right up front to root each of you on.

  1. Wendy, I appreciate the mention. I know we’re all in the same boat… at times… but I think each of us freelancers has something of value to offer!

    By the way, this mention came as a surprise. Generally I’m notified whenever someone links to Wording Well. Not this time. Good thing I check your blog once a week! 😉

    Glad I didn’t miss the opportunity to thank you as well!

  2. Thank you, Wendy, for the mention and your gift of generosity in sharing these blogger links with us so we can visit and help attract more traffic to their site. You have some talented fellow bloggers and I’m honored to be included among them. 🙂

  3. Wendy,

    Thank you SO much. You’re a real sweetheart for helping to promote others.
    May it come back to you in abundance:)
    Wanda S.
