UnAnswered Comments Part 2

Osteoporosis was the diagnosis after waiting and waiting for the Doctor, P.S note to self, don’t go if a Pap smear is being done!

After the doctors, the day just got worse, crazy drivers cutting you off too close for comfort in two incidences. for a Monday it was busy out there on the roads. Then Deb’s car get towed away to junkyard heaven. She had that car for over 20 years and is depressed and currently gorging on a marathon of Scream Queens.

So for the last post of the evening, address some more comments and highlight two Bloggers.

Spotlight Blogger

Danny Ray PGADanny Ray, AKA Dream Big Dream Often not only is one great writer providing insights on his personal struggles yet showing us that there is always light at the end of the tunnel paving a way for brighter futures. Danny believes dearly in giving back and helping out his fellow Bloggers by hosting his bi-monthly Meet & Greet Parties that everyone should be attending.

Danny has also shown this little O’l Jack Rabbit of a Blog major support by reblogging several of my posts and most recently has shown great support ever since Janice from Mostly Blogging and I formed an alliance to help our fellow Bloggers out.

Thank you, Danny. You, sir, have my full respect and gratitude.

Gold trophy

Janice another great Blogger from Mostly Blogging  is a Blogger that provides great tips from Instagram. Pinterest and other subjects while still trying to help out her fellow Blogger.  Did you know she was interviewed by Daniela Uslan. You can read more here by clicking on the link provided.

On to other comments that need to be addressed.

Alexandra from My Urban Family earlier left me a comment while I was AFK (away from keyboard).

Hi Michael, is this an ongoing thing you are going to be doing or just a one off for now? I would love to set something up where a couple of my posts are put on reddit each week and I submit a few for others as well!

Alexandra, this will be an ongoing thing until it becomes apparent that it is no longer required or needed.

Hi Michael!
Just wanted to say that your posts for Reddit are awesome. I would like to share a blog, it is one of my spiritual pieces I did. Would love to see what kind of response I get.

Thanks!

Hi there and thank you for leaving a link to be shared on Reddit. I will get to that soon. First I do have to abide the Reddit rules of power and make some comments within the subreddit.

gary loggins

Yours has been submitted and can be found here

Submitted on November 1, 2015, https://www.reddit.com/r/promote/

Have a good evening everyone. I will be back at this in the morning.

As always if you have a question or just want to say something, please feel free.

UnAnswered Comments!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have some unanswered comments. Some of you know that I will answer the comments within a post.

Why do I do this?

  1. I can address all comments with one post
  2. It helps to promote your Blogs
  3. I am so far the only one that does this from time to time as far as I know
  4. Others can keep up with what’s going on.
  5. It’s just a kind way and common sense to help a fellow Blogger out by getting them some attention.

So, without further adieu,

Hugh’s Views and News  left me a comment earlier this morning.

Great tutorial Michael. Reddit still nerves me somewhat but probably only because I’ve heard a few horror stories about it. I guess we have to be brave and find out for ourselves.

That video can be found here:  HOW TO POST ON REDDIT!

Hugh has a great Blog proving tips for Bloggers as well, not only that but from time to time he will write a whimsical essay like The Day I Almost Married Lara Croft, you have got to give this one a read, especially if you’re a gamer like myself.

I’m getting here in the afternoon. So, “Good afternoon, on this Daylight Saving Time day.” Do you go around and change all the clocks in the house?

Well, I did have help, R2D2 update the USS Enterprise in the kitchen while Darth Vader updated the Porcelain God Thrown. and Chewbacca with all that hair decided to update the Microwave.

Kathy

Hi Michael! Thanks for sharing my link her and on reddit. Can you tell me what thread you posted it on? I’ve seen about 100 reads since yesterday when I gave you the link so I know it’s out there somewhere. Google analytics runs a day slow so I’m not able to see just where it’s coming from. Thanks again for the help. I definitely appreciate your generosity! ~Kathy

Hello, Kathy I can say that during the time you posted your link to be shared on Reddit, I did not submit at that time frame. However, it has been submitted this morning. You can view where it was placed by clicking here, SUBMITTED POSTS

I read your comment left on the post, HALLOWEEN PROMOTING YOUR BLOG. I have not forgotten,  On an earlier post I did, GOOD MORNING BLOGGERS! at the bottom of the post I had this last statement, “I do post on Reddit now and then but have also been kicked off for posting too much (left by Kathy).” Pay close attention to this, for this is one of the drawbacks with Reddit! Yours will get posted soon.

Yesterday I announced that Janice and I have formed an alliance in efforts to help promote your Blogs! You can  read more about that here with the following links: Note: Last night and this morning I did add more links in the Follow to Follow Directory!

Announcing Mostly Blogging & Michael’s Origins Unite!

Inspire Me Monday Linky Party #56

I was recently left with a comment by The.Richard.Braxton, the comment is as follows, “Have you tried this yet? Does it work? And if you are caught colluding like this will you get banned from Reddit or StumbleUpon?”

That is a good question and I thank you for the comment. First these sites StumbleUpon and Reddit advocate the promotion of others and not your own. On Reddit, you can get away with submitting your own work however it is tricky and you can easily get banned for being a spammer. As I was writing this post, I received a comment on my post, REDDIT, SUBREDDITS SHARES! the comment is from skinnyandsingle, “13 minutes ago Skinny and Single
Reddit has given me kick ass traffic. More than 5000 views… in saying that, I’ve also been called horrible, horrible names 😀
I love Reddit!!!!” and her second comment when I asked permission to use her comment in my post, “You bet!!!! 🙂 I am the Reddit Queen!!!!! I’ve only been blacklisted, called a spammer like a thousand times :D”

To Jump Track, that comment was sent by God himself as I was writing this post. P.S I do believe in Guardian Angels -saved my life as a young know it all teen.

On my post REDDIT, SUBREDDITS SHARES, know one knew that I was sharing their work on other platforms in hopes of generating more views for them. Here is a comment that was left for me by the lovely Jennifer Calvert from Ink And Quill,

“2 days ago INK AND QUILL Michael, a big thank you for posting some of my poetry on reddit. That’s is so kind and thoughtful of you! Much appreciated. I will have to get onto reddit myself and return the favour! X”

Excerpt from yesterday’s post below!

Why are we uniting?

Janice and I came to the conclusion and here is what she has on her Blog, “I have written about the potential for massive traffic from both StumbleUpon and Reddit. The problem is you can’t self-promote at either site. How can you get tremendous traffic from sites that frown on you putting your links there?” 

This is true with StumbleUpon which is a great resource for driving traffic to you blog as long as someone and that someone is not you, shares it on StumbleUpon, I have submitted three of my posts on StumbleUpon and nada, zip nothing until I found the why! 😦  Reddit even trickier to utilize to harness the benefits of Reddit id self-promoting.

Both Janice and I believe in the idea of helping our fellow Bloggers out there that want to increase their traffic, perhaps gain some new friends along the way.

If you are FOLLOWING our blogs, you will be apprised when the links to the respective groups go live” I have already worked on some graphics to place on the right side of this Blog.

Small Reddit Shares

This will be a clickable image pointing to the page to submit your post that you want to be shared on Reddit.

Small Janice Stumbleupon

 

This will be the image for Jance’s Page if you want to have your post shared on StumbleUpon.

To close this post, I hope that you will take advantage of this new idea that Janice and I came up with.

Please, Let me know your thoughts on this new idea to help you out!

 

Announcing Mostly Blogging & Michael’s Origins Unite!

Announcing Mostly Blogging & Michael’s Origins Unite!

Yesterday, Sunday was filled with mixed emotions, the Minnesota Vikings pulled a rabbit out of their hat and won, Yah! The New York Giants at the last possible moment had a 100-yard punt return, though I am not a Giants fan that was great to see! Did anyone catch the latest episode of The Walking Dead?  All I can say I am in denial and sad, but I won’t spoil it for you in case you haven’t seen it yet.

This morning I also received word that Danny is feeling better today, things are looking good!

I will say Sunday was an eventful day! It is also a day that Janice from Mostly Blogging and I decided to cross promote each others Blogs to our readers. That’s right! We have come up with a unique plan that will help you increase your traffic.

In a previous post, I wrote along with a video, REDDIT, SUBREDDITS AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW I describe what you needed to know and in the video I explained that Reddit frowns on a person self-promoting and one could get banned if not careful. Their rule is to share 90% of others work that would allow you to submit 10% of your own.  That is work!

Why are we uniting?

Janice and I came to the conclusion and here is what she has on her Blog, “I have written about the potential for massive traffic from both StumbleUpon and Reddit. The problem is you can’t self-promote at either site. How can you get tremendous traffic from sites that frown on you putting your links there?”
