Community is so so so important to me. Although I am totally dramarama, I love that my friends and group of blogger buddies are springboards for my concerns and provide some awesome feedback.
So some tips for not being a loser and making friends?
1. Leave the bat cave. For serious if the only place you hang out is your blog, no one is going to know who the hell you are. So, go on ahead and participate in some memes, leave comments on other blogs.
2. Leave genuine comments. Dude people KNOW when you are copy pasting the same comment to every other blog, especially on memes. I will totally call you out for that shit because it is annoying and obvious that you are trolling for traffic and you are not going to be making any genuine friends that way.
3. Join the 21st century and get a twitter account. Seriously, all the srs business goes down on twitter. Bonding happens on twitter. Twitter is pretty much the bar. It’s where you go to get a drink and meet new people and hang out.
4. Reply to comments on your blog. Dude if you are engaged and interacting, people will become your friend.
