4 Ways To Support Your Favourite Blogger

1. Follow Them On Bloglovin' Blogging isn't all about the numbers, but if your favourite blogger is trying to make it full-time then the number of followers they have on different platforms is really important to companies wanting to work with them. I'm SO guilty of not following blogs on Bloglovin', but it's usually because I always read their posts via Twitter. I now make a conscious effort to follow all of my favourites!

2. Interact With Them. Leave a comment on their latest post, send them a Tweet, like their photo on Instagram. The best way for a blogger to know what kind of content their readers enjoy is through the interaction levels (at least it is for me), so if you love their latest post then let them know! They'll be able to take your likes and dislikes into account when planning their posts for next month/week. Plus it's the best thing ever when someone says they like something you've spent a lot of time on.
 
3. Let Other People Know About Them. You can do this by creating a blogroll, by retweeting their posts on Twitter or even by mentioning them in your next monthly favourites. I love raving about my favourite bloggers to people, and I'm so incredibly grateful and awed that some other people have even raved about me. (P.S whilst we're here, my favourite blogger ever ever is Michelle from Daisybutter, but I'm sure you already knew that!)
 
4. Check Out Their Etsy. Even if it's not an option for you to buy anything from their store, check out their Etsy (if they have one). I've bought a custom illustration from Jemma from Dorkface, and a set of reuseable cotton pads from Hayley at Water Painted Dreams and I love that I have these fab things whilst helping out some of my faves! Even if you simply retweet one of their promoting tweets, it's a great way to help them out.

  4. It is so important to support your favourite bloggers! I always try to comment as much as possible and follow all my favourite blogs.
    It is the nicest feeling when you get support for your blog so it's equally important to reciprocate!

  7. Lauren!! This post made me smile - I only just spied my little mention. So so lovely of you. I'm definitely an advocate of sharing the love with my favourite bloggers. I think every comment has the potential to make the recipient smile so I try and comment on as many as I can. I made a little Bloglovin 'collection' (god, aren't those confusing?!) for 'just because' posts, because as you mentioned although numbers aren't everything, a 'save' can go a long way for those looking to get bigger! xx
