How Do Bloggers Get Connected?

Have you seen a blogger with a huge friend network?

Everywhere you look, they appear, like a magician.

Sometimes Enstine appears like a fine mist out of the vapors, popping up instantly in every corner of the globe.

He knows the secret of being connected.

He IS connected.

But he understands; “getting” connected ain’t gonna happen. No passive quality about it.

Appear to get connected by actively connecting yourself to fellow bloggers.

11,000 Comments on Disqus

I confess; 2 tabs are open on my Chromebook as I write these words.

1 tab links me to blogging tips bloggers. 1 tab links me to digital nomad bloggers.

Guilty as charged; I advise bloggers do 1 thing at a time to avoid overwhelm and to do the best job.

Anyway, I checked my Disqus account after publishing a comment last night. I wrote and published 11,315 comments on the platform over a decade.

That is just 1 platform.

I estimate I wrote and published 50,000 blog comments or more over 10 years.

Meaning I connected myself to a bunch of bloggers over a decade.

Forget about all my comments. Focus on Disqus. I read – or scanned – a ton of blog posts. I then wrote and published 11,315 mindful comments. Some long form. Virtually all, personalized. I worked diligently and generously to connect myself with bloggers through 11, 315 comments on Disqus and 50,000 plus comments on various platforms over my blogging career.

Can you see why I appear to be connected? Can you dig why I appear to be all over the place in my niche? I AM in 11,315 spots on Disqus alone. I became friends with many bloggers, building connections, offering value and helping folks.

Nothing passive about my connected-ness, guys. I did not get connected. Didn’t happen by accident, or by luck, or by me begging folks to introduce me to people, to do work for me.


Guys like Enstine and I connect ourselves to other bloggers by:

  • commenting genuinely on their blogs
  • promoting bloggers generously on our blogs
  • promoting bloggers generously on social media

We did these things with no strings attached, for years, to become connected. All traffic, profits and blogging buddies seemingly flowed our way occurred because we busted our tails every day for many years to build our large, loyal friend networks.

Time Frame

I chuckle sometimes.

Bloggers advise that “blog commenting does not work” after half hearted attempts at blog commenting for a month.

I should send the screenshare of my 11,000 plus Disqus comments with a 🙂 to alert them; blog commenting works perfectly but they aren’t working blog commenting generously and persistently.

If you want to be connected you need to connect yourself with bloggers through authentic blog commenting and generous promoting over years of your life, 5-7 days weekly.

Well worth the effort guys. Fun deal too because blogging buddies make your life easier and are a fabulous support system during blogging highs and lows.

Think in terms of months and years, not days and weeks, to become a connected blogger. If it took only days and weeks of work to become a connected blogger, every blogger you meet would be an island hopping pro blogger. But since pro bloggers are rare you know it takes months to years of diligent connecting and creating to succeed online.

Put in the time.

Connect yourself with pros.

Build your blogger friend network from an active, generous energy to succeed online.

  4. Ryan Biddulph, Thank you for this wonderful post.

    We build connection with people through conversation and in the online world, comment is a great way.

    I have done this on instagram and I made some good friendships on the platform.

    I will try and start commenting on blogs now.

  5. Thanks, Ryan sharing your knowledgeable experience, can you share more knowledge about blogging, Actually I’m starting blogging I haven’t proper idea about blogging if you share for me that really helpful for me.

  6. Interesting read, Ryan. I agree with you. Some bloggers say blog commenting is not worth the effort, but it is one of the best way to get to know fellow bloggers and build bonds. Relationships with other bloggers will set you up for the long run, it is a way to increase your brand visibility. For example, it is by way of blog commenting that I met amazing bloggers like yourself- Ryan, Donna Merrill, Gaurav Kumar, Jeff Bullas, Rebekah Radice, Enstine, etc. Commenting only takes a few minutes, but will help you connect and scale your business.

    Thanks to sharing, bro!

  7. Great Post Ryan. In order to promote business and get traffic connection between bloggers is must.Apart from that we also come to know about great ideas by connecting with other bloggers in our niche.

  8. Hi Ryan,

    Great post! Connecting with bloggers and build a network of those bloggers in your niche is the best way to stay relevant.

    Most newbies thought blogging is a competition and a matter of besting everyone in the niche. My own point of view is to build a community out of established bloggers instead of competing.

    Thanks for the post and have a nice day.

  9. Thank you, Ryan, for this great offer even at that very low price. Hope it’d still be available by month end?

    I can’t afford to miss this.

  12. Hi Enstine and Ryan,

    Glad to see Ryans guest post here. Without networking with fellow bloggers, it is not easy to make a name for ourselves in the blogging field. Also, the more you help the fellow bloggers, the more you get attention from other bloggers. Ryan, I appreciate your consistency and patience over a decade to make a name for yourself.

    Thanks once again for the great post, Ryan. Also, thanks Enstine for introducing Ryan to more of your audience once again.

    Looking forward to coming back and read more posts from this blog.

    Have a great time blogging.

    Best regards

  13. Great Post Ryan, I always like to validate I am connected with I start seeing the same people commenting on the same posts on different websites. Can’t tell you how many times I run into you Ryan on various websites. It helps me know I am on the right path.

    When it comes to commenting you have to show your value by commenting. Sometimes you see a comment that is begging for results or money but that is not how it works. We need to show up with value first over and over and only then will the profit follow.

    I have found some good luck on LinkedIn by commenting on different influencers like Simon Sinek. It gets you exposure to people who would have never otherwise known you exist.

  14. Hello Ryan,

    Awesome post. You are also everywhere and connected to every blogger. I believe so. Connecting with bloggers and making networking definitely helps you to grow your blog and build your authority online. Enstine also is a great guy to connect with and I am happy to have guys like you and Enstine on my networks. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

    Have a Great Day 🙂
