As many of you know, one of the things that you can do to attract readers to your blog is to have them “Follow You”. There are several ways of doing this — you can use Facebook and Twitter as a way of getting your message out there; you can have your readers subscribe to you via email so they get an email with the day’s posts, and yet another way, you can use Google Friend Connect to get followers.
While I haven’t been using GFC very much — I have definately had an on again, off again relationship with it, it occurred to me that I should be using GFC to attract followers. Many of my fellow bloggers and friends are running contests, and without a doubt most of them are using Google Friend Connect as one of the stipulations for entering the contest.
So here’s what I’m thinking. Right now, I have 32 followers via Google Friend Connect. Please pass the word around, let’s see how many followers we can get on My Dreams of Disney! My one year anniversary of the blog is coming up on September 8th — wow! — and I will be having an anniversary contest! And, while I’m not officially saying it right now, it is entirely possible that the winner will come from Google Friend Connect followers!
Look for more information about the contest in the weeks to come! Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
