How to Connect with Bloggers

January 15, 2018

If you've been on Instagram lately, you'll see that best friend pics and girls collaborating with other girls are killing it right now. I know I used to be extremely introverted and I still am a little but I thought it would be fun to share with you guys how to connect with other bloggers.

When I first started blogging a little over two years ago I was so envious when I would see blogger meet ups and bloggers hanging out with other bloggers. I always wondered how do they all know each other? I mean Columbus isn't huge but it isn't small. 

Here are some tips that I think will help you as they helped me:

- Follow other bloggers that have the similar niche as you & engage with them (show them love whether it's through their posts or stories or even share one of their blog posts!)
- Reach out to bloggers in your area and ask about getting coffee/lunch
- Promote other bloggers (example: follow Friday on Instagram stories is where you encourage your readers to follow other accounts) 
- Plan meet ups/events, you can collaborate with one of your favorite stores and invite tons of bloggers in your area. This is a great way to connect! 
- Join Facebook groups (a couple I am in are: Reward Style Bloggers, The Savvy Social Community and I'm So Blogging This!) 
- Attend a blogger conference (I want to go to Create and Cultivate in LA so bad!)
- Attend New York Fashion Week (this could be an entire post on it's own but ANYONE can go, no matter how big or small you are on social media)
- Search your locations hashtag (for example: your area code + blogger, #614blogger is mine)
- Email them! (this seems so simple but anytime I receive an email from another blogger or reader I respond no matter what)
- Offer to give more than you take. For example, I was listening to a podcast a couple days ago and the girl being interviewed said she collaborates with her friends frequently. She says she offers to help them on Instagram because she is killing it on there (she has 19 million followers, not kidding) and they will offer to help her with another platform that maybe she isn't as popular on. 

I honestly have met so many girls in Columbus since I started blogging through all of these tips and I know they will help you too! PS- speaking of these tips, I am going to use one now :)

* Shoutout to Olivia Zwayer from @alifetoliv, she planned this shoot, take pictures and she's been one of the coolest girls I've met in Cbus!

* Shoutout to Lindsay Marie from @lindsayxxmarie, we got ready at her house all day and she is a YouTube superstar! You guys have to go check her out. 

* Last but MOST DEFINITELY not least, shoutout to this babe @madddietorrres for killing it with our hair! She is so talented and if you are in the Columbus area, you need to book your next hair appointment with her.

  1. Great tips lady! I am also in introvert and have really had to push myself. However, some of my best friends now are girls I have met through blogging.
