        Thanks for your comment Latief. Rob Rammuny is a great dude. He gave me lots of encouraging tips and we always talk. I did my first guest post on his blog.

        I too use the CommentLuv and Top commentators list and reward them with dofollow links. I also try to reply to comments asap and make sure that the comments are approved as they are posted.

      I cannot agree with you more Kharim. The friendships I have established through networking mainly through off the blog chat and connecting has been very useful.

      What is always amazing is to see the blogging community grow. Because I know Rob, Joe, and I’ve heard of Robyn since he has that same theme as you (I believe) by Alex at Blogussion.

      These again are all great ways to show your voice and establish your own distinct (personal brand) online presence.

      Nice post, Kharim.
      Yeah this is definitely very true. After all, if you don’t reach out to other bloggers who is going to reach out to you? And another thing, when you do make it big, don’t forget the people you met along the way to the top… πŸ˜€

      Replying to comments is something that most bloggers don’t do and guest posting too. I think if they were to take these two into consideration with all other ways of friending other bloggers, it will really sky-rocket their blogs, their blogging careers, and themselves higher :). Thanks :).

          That’s great, Kharim. Guests posts help put you out on a new platform for new people to see you :). So it’s very helpful :).

      You highlighted some great points here about making friends with other bloggers in the blogosphere. Most of the blogs that I comment frequently on, and this is one of them, I feel like I’m friends with the blog owner.

      Thanks for sharing!!

      Hey Kharim,

      Thanks for the mention dude.

      Being a genuine blogger is extremely important since your personality is easily expressed through your writing. So if a blogger really isn’t genuine and just in it for other motives other than building the blogging community and just making money, readers can quickly pickup on that tone and never return.

        Thanks for the comment Robyn. If you are only to make money then it’s just pointless. You have to be friendly to the people who will help you to make money and to some of your competitors as well.

      Hi Shane,

      When I first started using WP, I had no intention of blogging. My intention was to have a website that was not popular so I could store things that I wanted to remember on it.

      Well, the social aspect of blogging made me change my mind quickly. The blogging community is filled with great people!

      Have a great day!
