Personally I don’t think there’s a way to sincerely invite people to take a look at your blog, but here’s the best ways I’ve found to get traffic to my blog.
(I don’t claim to be an expert, I only have about 340 followers myself!)
Follow other bloggers, and leave genuine, well thought out comments on their blogs. Show them your appreciate what they’re writing, and include your link at the end of the comment. Don’t ask them to check out your blog, like you said- that just annoys people.
If you haven’t already, set up a twitter account and follow other fashion bloggers. Some people will follow you back, and you can promote your posts by tweeting them! Make sure you tweet other things aside from just new blog posts though.
Be active on fashion forums like Chictopia and Lookbook. More people will check out your profile, and hopefully click your blog link.
Include your blog link in the description when you post things to Chictopia. Perhaps something like ‘Read more on my blog..’
Your blog is lovely, so don’t worry! It just takes some time to build followers!
I hope that helps!
Your blog really is lovely! Yeah I think that the main thing to start is to really get into a blogging community-post nice comments on other peoples blogs (definitely not the just “check out my blog!” variety!), post in forums. Giveaways (if they’re good) can also work, but then that depends on whether you’re willing to spend money to get your blog out there.posted about 1 year ago
Thanks for your advices! Well I’d like to do some giveaways, but they would not be very attractive, I don’t have that much money to buy designer clothes, as famous bloggers do. Some of my friends on facebook were very nice, they posted a link to my blog to tell their friends. I hope this can be helpful if someone else have the same issue with announcing ^^ I decided to be the more honest I can. I leave comments only if I really have something to say and if I really like what I’m commenting on, and then I just add a link to my blog / facebook page. I follow only if I like. I know this may not be the most simple and faster way to get followers, but at least I don’t feel hypocritical and annoying as you said :)posted about 1 year ago
