  • I’ve gained many IRL connections by working with other bloggers–even got invited to a press-only event by connections made through Twitter! It’s important to stay connected AND reach out of your niche. Whenever I find a lot of visits from a specific site, I make sure to visit their site and interact. Often they will have featured one of my articles without me even knowing about it!
