Recently, I was reading a post at Darren Rowse’s blog over at Problogger about his traffic generation tactics and he mentioned a ‘Secret Blog Network’. I immediately started doing a bit of research and discovered that it is a little club of bloggers who help and support each other. They link to each other, tweet each other’s posts and comment on each other blogs.
The idea made me think that perhaps we ought to do the same sort of thing in the self improvement, self growth and motivation niche. So, if you are a blogger writing for this audience, I would like to invite you to participate.
To get things rolling, I’ll visit your blog and, provided it is of decent quality (I guess you’ll have to trust me on this) I’ll review it here at the Inspiration Blog. That would give you quite a bit of exposure because you will get the following benefits:
- A High Quality Do Follow PR5 Link
- A Tweet in our Tweet-Stream
- The Post Appears on Our Facebook Fanpage
- The Post Appears in our Newsletter
In return, I would ask you to simply review this blog on your blog – does that sound fair?
What this proposal will do is build a list of people with quality sites who are actively blogging in the personal development niche. I will then publish that list here and you will then be able to contact anyone in the list and do a similar ‘review swap’ with them. Once the ‘Not-So-Secret Blog Club’ gets going, we could discuss other ways we could help each other.
Imagine what might happen if we could get, say, 50 active bloggers together who are each influential and writing within our niche. Each of those 50 blogs could be featured on everybody else’s blog if we were all to commit to the idea. It would also give you something to be writing about – solving another perennial blogging problem for many people.
Great ideas, I have found, are often simple; they begin small and just grow. So there it is: a simple idea that could take off.
