ORGANISE YOUR BLOG #7 – BLOG LOVE

ORGANISE YOUR BLOG #7 – BLOG LOVE

Welcome back to ‘Organise Your Blog‘, a weekly blog series full of fabulous free printables to help you organise every aspect of your blog. From editorial calendars, to daily blogging checklists, to a printable to help you join in with linky’s quicker!

This weeks ‘Organise Your Blog‘ is all about the blog love. When I first started blogging I couldn’t get over how friendly and welcoming other bloggers were, and how much everyone encouraged and helped each other along.

If you give love, you get love back. It’s as simple as that.

Social media platforms can sometimes be a place where bloggers post links and run!

We’re busy! We’re trying to balance our home lives and work lives and it’s hard. I’m guilty of doing that on occasion too.

But interacting with other bloggers and your social media followers is a big win all around.

If you find it hard to balance your blog, your life and trying to squeeze in giving some blog love, then this ‘Blog Love‘ printable is for you!

Blog Love Printable

If you’re already engaging in Twitter conversations, Facebook interactions and responding to comments, then you’re on the right track to not only making some great friends, but also to getting more back from your blog. Being friendly and making relationships is such a lovely feeling and makes blogging a lot more special.

I’m sure that you appreciate it when another blogger gives you some blog love, shares your post, retweets it or even puts it on their Facebook page?

Returning the favour or giving your own random ‘blog love’ to someone is not only a nice thing to do, but it can make someones day and it’ll make you memorable.

Last weeks daily blogging checklist, gave you a great way to timer in some daily blog love.

Kerry from ‘Oh So Amelia’ also has some great tips on how to share the blog love in her post: ‘5 Easy Ways To Support Fellow Bloggers‘. She also has some amazing blog tips, so be sure to check out her page.

THE BLOG LOVE PRINTABLE

Do you ever read a great post, mean to share it and then forget? Do you join in with ‘Follow Friday’ (#FF) every week and worry you’ll miss someone out?

There are two parts to this printable. #FF and ‘Blog Posts To Share’. As usual, the free printable can be completely edited by you (you can download the editable version at the bottom of the page) so if you don’t like anything, you can change it. 

Blog Love

HOW TO USE THE PRINTABLE

The #FF part: I have this printable on hand throughout the week, so that the people who interact with me the most, or are just all around fabulous, get jotted down onto my #FF list. Obviously you can use it to add whoever you like.

The ‘Blog Posts To Share’ part: Everyday on both Facebook and Twitter I give out #dailybloglove. If I read a particularly great or memorable post in the week, instead of just commenting on it or retweeting it, I add it to my ‘Blog Posts To Share’ list (as above) and then schedule it in with my own tweets and Facebook posts, so I can give it a special individual share to that blogger on my social media sites.

It’s a bit more personal than a retweet and I’ve made some great blogger relationships by doing this. I find that using a personal hashtag also means that all of those previously shared posts can be rediscovered everyday if someone happens to click on the hashtag.

But, don’t feel like you need to do this too. You might want to use it to store favourite bloggers or maybe something else. It’s up to you. You can download your editable version here:

    I try and comment on posts i’ve read. The blogger has taken the time to write it and as you say knowing someone has read it and commented could make someones day.

    The blog love to share is a great idea other than having a list of blogs i’ve read i hadnt considerd posting individual posts on my social mmedi.

    • October 22, 2015 / 7:56 pm

      If you already schedule tweets for twitter and posts for facebook, it’s so easy to slip another few in there and it really does make the world of difference to both you and another person.

      But you’re so right, just a simple comment on someones post is enough. I hate seeing amazing posts with no comments on them. Especially when someones taken the time to write it from the heart. x

    I’ve finally gotten organised and have started scheduling tweets, but I think the recommendation to share posts is such a good one 🙂 I’ve read some gems this morning already that should get more love, so will have a go at getting them out there at once!

      I must admit I really couldn’t live without scheduling tweets now I’ve started. I always break into a cold sweat if I’ve forgotten to do it and have nothing going out haha. But it’s so easy to slip another post in there by someone else as well isn’t it, especially when you’re already in the flow of doing your schedule. So far i’ve found that it makes the recipricantt so, so happy which is such a nice feeling. x

    Great post, I always forget who I want to give a #FF to x

    • October 22, 2015 / 8:21 pm

      Thank you so much!!! I know you always worry that you’re going to miss someone out. x

    Great tips, as a new blogger I find that I’m throwing myself in every direction at random times. Having a consistent schedule would help a ton. I also love the #FF, I always find bloggers I love but then forget their handles! Thanks for sharing. Here’s to getting more organized!

    • October 26, 2015 / 11:21 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. It’s definitely hard finding your feet as a new blogger. Your blog looks so good though! You’ll find after a while that everything just falls into place and you get into a bit of a blogging rythym which is really helpful. xx

  5. October 25, 2015 / 7:46 am

    What a fantasic printable! I have been meaning to do something similar for a while but you have saved me the time!! I’mn going to give this a go this week! I’ll let you know how I get on!!

    • October 26, 2015 / 11:22 pm

      Thank you so much! I’m glad it’s been helpful. Definitely let me know if it works for you. I’d love any feedback. x

      Thank you so much. It really is hard work isn’t it. It takes up a lot of time and remembering all of the people who have interacted with you can be so difficult and you really don’t want to forget anyone. Especially when you can so easily get distracted by little ones running about any second! 😀 x

  7. October 25, 2015 / 8:50 pm

    Such a good idea. I do a lot of reading blogs on my phone on the go and always forget who I want to share some #FF love (plus working on Fridays doesn’t help).
    Thanks for sharing on #SundayStars

    • October 26, 2015 / 11:33 pm

      Thank you so much. I tend to screen shot them and then add them to this as I go. It definitely helps. x

    This is another great organisational tool, I must say I haven’t gotten round to using #FF yet but it is on my list of things to do as soon as possible 🙂

    #sundaystars

    • October 26, 2015 / 11:35 pm

      Thank you so much Becca. It’s definitely something that’s worth doing. It makes you feel so good giving blog love to other people and you get so much back in return. x

    Wow, this looks like a great printable! As a new blogger I’m constantly trying to work out what I need to keep up with so this will be useful. I look forward to exploring your other printables for some other ideas. Thanks for sharing. X

    • October 27, 2015 / 7:22 am

      I’m so glad that they’re helpful. It is a lot to keep up with, especially at first. I hope that you’re enjoying blogging. xx

  10. October 27, 2015 / 10:17 am

    You have a lovely friendly approach which will take you far, love the printable. #Twinklytuesday

    • October 29, 2015 / 10:07 pm

      Thank you so much. I hope you’ve seen an improvement. x

  11. October 27, 2015 / 8:25 pm

    Thank you for sharing, organisation is so important to keep up to date with your blog. I read somewhere someone associating blogging with another child and that is so true! X

    • October 29, 2015 / 10:11 pm

      Blogging definitely feels like a second baby. There is so much to do, so much upkeep, so much learning to do, lots to multi-task. But it’s definitely an amazing thing to get to do everyday. x

  12. October 27, 2015 / 8:31 pm

    This is another great organisational tool, I really must start printing them out and then I might be a bit more organised! Only just getting to grips with twitter as a newbie (ish) blogger. #twinklytuesdays

    • October 29, 2015 / 10:13 pm

      Thank you so much. Everything does take a while to get to grips with that’s for sure. I’ve pretty much sussed twitter now, but I’m still finding some aspects of blogging difficult. I hope you’re really enjoying blogging so far though! x

  13. October 27, 2015 / 9:42 pm

    Ooo I love this one. I am terrible at forgetting what I’ve read and who I need to show some love to. I do so much blogging from my phone, it’s not the easiest way of doing things. I am definitely going to be printing this one out! Thanks so much for all the effort you put in for this series – its fab! Thanks so much for linking up with #Twinklytuesday

    • October 29, 2015 / 10:14 pm

      Aww thank you so, so much! I hope this helps you. I blog a lot from my phone too and it really is hard to remember things when you’re just hopping on and off throughout the day. x

  14. October 31, 2015 / 8:31 pm

    I never knew what #FF was Chloe but now I completely understand. Great idea and very useful printable.

    • November 1, 2015 / 3:23 pm

      I’m so glad this is useful!! 😀 It’s all a little confusing at first isn’t it. xx

  15. November 1, 2015 / 8:58 am

    This is a great post. I’m relatively new to blogging and try to RT and comment as much as I can but it does feel quite disorganised at times so this will help me. Thanks!

    #sundaystars

      I’m so glad it’s helpful! When we’re so busy and on the go, it can be so hard to remember can’t it. x
