Well P was going to be about promotion, but as the challenge has progressed, I've become frustrated with the number of people who've kindly left comments on my posts, but I can't find to read their posts and leave return comments. These are people who've left comments on my posts, and when I click on their names, I'm taken to their profile page and it includes a photo of them, and a list of the blogs that they follow. But there is no link back to their blogs.
Profiles are pretty important. Especially if you leave comments and then people can't find their way to you, to your hiding place in digital obscurity.
Isn't part of the idea to have people follow you back to your blog, to read your meaningful post. :-)
Sign out of everything, then take a look at as many of your profiles as you can without signing back in. Make sure you sign out of everything Google (multiple sites) Google+ is a bully about spreading digital tentacles where you might not want them ~she writes while posting on a free Google blogger platform~.
It's true. I click to leave a comment and I've been taken to commenters' G+ page only to dead-end there. So adding information to your G+ about page is another good way to help people find you and your blog.
Check your blog page--now you are like Joe Reader out in the public sphere perusing your blog.
If you use the Blogger platform, and you've discovered that your blog isn't listed on your profile page, then log back in to your Google account.On your blog, upper right, click on "Design". On the new page that loads, click on the little menu drop down arrow just to the right of you name in the upper right corner, then click on "Blogger Profile". On the new page that appears, upper right, click on orange box "Edit Profile". Click on the third item down, "Select Blogs to Display". Blogger choices should pop up. Click on the blog you want people to find when they click on your name on other blogs (when you leave comments on another blog, and someone clicks on your name on the comment, this will be the blog they are taken to).Click to select the blog that will be displayed on your profile.
A fail-safe if you're not sure a blogger can click back through to your blog is to leave the link on the comments you leave on other blogs. Time constraints keep me from looking up the instructions (html code) how to make the link active, but in Blogger, anytime you find an inactive link in a comment, you can click and drag to highlight it, then right click on it and select "open link in new window".
