8 Sites I Can't Live Without
BlogHer is a "platform for sharing great voices, stories and ideas. If you’re a creator, we invite you to share your voice with our community."
I know you're already here (duh!), but did you know that BlogHer offers many opportunities for bloggers from conferences to advertising and everything in between. What I love is that you can publish your posts on BlogHer and have your own little blog that lives on their website and exposes you to their readers (and they have a lot!). They also organize things nicely into categories so you can check out your favorite areas (I like the humor section under work/life!) or just check out the home page to see what is popular today. I cross-post any of my regular posts that I feel are widely relevant as soon as I publish them on my site. Readers can comment right on your BlogHer post, and you can see how many reads each of your posts has received.
BlogHer also shares the love from time to time by featuring member posts. Other than publishing your blog post on BlogHer, there is nothing you need to do to get your post featured. You will just get an email letting you know IF the powers that be decide to feature your post. Curious about what types of posts they feature? I have posted 37 times on BlogHer since January and 4 of them were selected to be featured. You will see a high number of readers for your featured posts since BlogHer will place them prominently on their main and category pages along with a photo (non-featured posts don't have a photo). They will also promote them on social media.
My BlogHer featured posts so far have been:
- 3 Plans To Eliminate The Musty Smell In My Front Load Washer (728 reads)
- Why Can't People With Kids Keep Their Cars Clean? 4 Solutions For Busy Parents (528 reads)
- My Valentine's Day Evolution (366 reads)
- Be More Funny! 22 Prompts To Help You Write Humor Posts (1625 reads)
Even some of my non-featured posts have had a high reader numbers on BlogHer. For example: 3 Misconceptions About QVC Watchers (My People) (1080 reads). BlogHer offers much more than I have mentioned here including a conference in July.
