Discussion Post | Blog Hopping and managing interaction with multiple blogs.

Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

A while back, I asked you guys if you’d want to maybe see a post on how I blog hop, and some of you said yes, so well, here I am with the post!

Let’s get into it!

Blog Hopping: Is it really necessary?

A lot of people who blog are major introverts in real life. And that also makes them a little hesitant in blog hopping and interacting with other people. But, hey, if you wanna grow your blog, blog hopping is very essential, and you also don’t need to worry, since all of us are awkward weirdos here! Even if you goof a comment up, none of us (or at least I), will judge you, since we’ve been there, done that! So, feel free to blog hop and interact, since it is necessary for the growth of your blog.

Blog Hopping: How to discover new blogs?

When I was new to the blogosphere, I was absolutely clueless as to how to discover new blogs. I was also a total newbie and a complete idiot, so this advice is super basic.

There are three ways I discover new blogs:

  1. Tags: I follow a bunch of tags- book tag, discussion post etc. and occasionally I check out these tags, and find out new blogs. It’s an amazing way to discover new bloggers with amazing content!
  2. Blog hopping via other blogs: In this case, I go to a blogger who’s content I like very much. Then I go to their likes, and pick a random person and go to their blog. If I like their content I follow them, and move on. If I don’t like their content, I don’t follow them, and move on!
  3. Via my own followers: I gain at least one follower everyday- I simply check out their blogs and if I like it, I give it a follow, if I don’t, I don’t give it a follow.

Managing Interaction with multiple blogs:

I follow around 300 blogs, which is a given since I’ve so many followers. But, it’s practically impossible to keep up with all of them. I try, of course, but in the end, I mostly interact with people who interact with me. It’s really annoying and off-putting when people don’t even respond to comments on their post. I understand if you’re busy, but it’s basic etiquette to respond to comments on your blog. I totally understand if people do not follow me back- my blog just might not be of their taste, but not responding to comments or responding extremely blandly isn’t something I am fond of. Of course, if a person follows me back, it makes me happy, but if they don’t, and they’ve awesome content and they’re a nice person, I end up loving their blog no matter what.


I hope you found this post helpful! Let me know how you deal with blog hopping in the comments down below!

  1. I thought I was the only one who would follow new blogs through other blogs’ contents 🤣 Truthfully, that was the only way I could get to know other blogs. Finding blogs through tags is new to me though! Great post, love it!

  2. This is actually very similar to my own experience, so I can only second all of these tips! 😁 I do also like to check out WordPress’s “Discover” section from time to time and (as long as it doesn’t recommend me my own posts 🙄) have found it a really helpful way to stumble across interesting bloggers!
    Though yes, isn’t it sad how you just can’t keep up with everybody? 😭 I think that’s one of my least favorite things about my blog having gotten bigger…

    1. I don’t know why but honestly that Discover section is rarely ever helpful for me! I mean all I come across are genres that are completely different from what I like to read.

      Yess, it’s so badddd!!! :((((((

  3. I am a blogger and a major introvert! Thanks for making this post. When I first started blogging, I saw the term “blog hop” being used a lot but I didn’t really know what it meant. I think this will be useful for a lot of newer bloggers.

  4. I kind of feel insecure to go to other blogs, like I sometimes feel as if I found my comfort blogs. There’s a small little string of bloggers I follow and I’m good. But I understand that it is an important way to reach out to more audience, because right now I get 3 new followers in a week, and often they’re like dormant readers. I kind of even doubt if they read my blog because so many times they do it only for follow backs. I hate when they do that.
    Your point about blogger interaction is true, I don’t like it when a comment I’vewritten is just overlooked, like it takes time and effort to write a comment and there is no response? Like what?!!
    Anyways, this post was brilliant. I love how straightforward it is!

    1. Oh, I see and I understand and relate completely!

      How ironic is it that I accidentally did not reply to the comment wherein you said that you don’t like when your comment is left unreplied.

      Thank you!!
