I have been blogging more than a year and the most important thing that I have noticed till now is the relationship with fellow bloggers in the same niche that you are writing about.
Often I happen to see a lot of friend requests in my Facebook and most of the requests are from those people who are showing more than 40 mutual friends with me. By seeing such requests, anyone can immediately get to know that the particular request is from the blogger at next door, and we approve them to add to our list.
Now, you have added a lot of bloggers in your list, but I got a question for you.
How many times do you connect with them in a week?
