The Top 3 Ways I Find New Blogs To Follow

You have probably noticed that I post a lot of new blogs in The Wednesday Weekly Review. In case you are wondering, yes there is a method to the madness of finding so many wonderful blogs! Here are the top three ways I decide to follow a blog and how I find the blogs I do follow!

1. Does she cook, craft, sew, refashion, and post tutorials? Is she Apostolic?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions I will follow the blog 90% of the time. I love to follow bloggers who have the same interests and beliefs as me. Even if the beliefs are not the same but the blogger has several of the other topics in common then I will still follow the blog. I like to have as many databases at my expense to pull creative ideas from!

2. Pinterest!
I am a Pinterest addict, as you well know, and I have a lot of pins. Before I delete a pin (because I delete a lot quite often) I see what the pin source is. If it is tumbler I don't follow it, but if it leads to a blogspot or other blog address then I will follow it to check out the blog. This is the main way I have discovered many of the blogs I currently am following. This is my favorite way to find a new blog.

3. Followers of other blogs!
When I find a blog I like I will click on the individual follower's icon to see what blogs they follow and/or contribute to, or post on, or host. This is a great way to find blogs which are related to many of the same topics and beliefs that I have. This is my second favorite way to find blogs!

4. Yes I know I said three, but a very important one is this: Do I have the option to follow via Email?
A lot of the time I will choose to follow a blog more willingly if the blogger has offered the option of following via email. I check my email a lot and therefore will be more likely to see the bloggers posts and will then be even more likely to leave encouraging comments. This is a huge deal for me! I hate it when I find a great blog and they don't have the option to follow via email. Why? Because most of the time, even if I am following the blog, I will forget to go back and check to see the latest posts.

Final Thoughts
I hope this has helped you understand my method a little better. Of course if I have visitors leave a comment anywhere on my blog I always check to see if they have a blog and then go check it out (bonus for leaving a comment on my blog!) I have found a few really good blogs this way as well.

All The Blogs I Love are pinned to the board at the end of this link!
