Top Sites Your Should Submit Your Awesome Projects to ...(and gain all the attention, fan and followers you deserved)

When I first involved in blogging.  I starts to share my crafts and projects in linky parties.  I did earn a lot of followers and receiving a lot of heart warming comments from joining the parties.  Then, I created a Facebook fan page for those who don't blog often, so they can comment and follow my blog easily.  Slowly, my blog traffic increase.

Getting featured in linky parties do help a lot in my blog exposure but it don't happened always and to get spotted among hundreds of projects...the chances is quite low, regardless how great the project is.

During my first year of blogging, my daily blog page views is about 300 ~ 500. My blog very first page view "great hike" is last August 2011.  That when my 'Sequin Sunburst Mirror" get featured in "Dollar Store Craft".  The daily view hit thousand for the first time and the total August pageviews are 25K, and my followers group multiplied over night.  It may be a small figure for you, but a 'mega' step for the first year MeiJo's Joy!  I owe this to a very thoughtful blog's friend - Mich of Mich L. in L.A.

Then only I realized, the second option to increase my blog exposure and gain more traffics into my newly build blog is to submit my project to a site.  Result?  ...for example...I have not post since last 10 days...but my recent pageviews is still quite high at about 3000~ 4000 daily.  And the total pageviews  for MeiJo's Joy in May is 180, 772.

  6. Wow! Great post. It's really helpful. I have had some random "mega sites" post my work by just finding it on their own, and I've seen my numbers swell. I really didn't know that I could submit my work to them. Thank you so much for getting this information out there. I plan on pursuing this. Jodi @ www.meaningfulmama.com
