Since I have been making the rounds lately submitting to new blog directory sites, I figured I would post a reminder on how important this one little task can be to the success of a blog or site.
Submitting your blog to directories can be an arduous process, I know; there are the sites that charge fees, the ones that take weeks to review your site, and the ones that just seem to incur a technical glitch when you have finally entered in all your information and dared to press the submit button. But if you are submitting to blog directories then you likely have already had the experience of submitting your site to search directories (that’s kind of step one) so you’re probably somewhat familiar with the process, but it makes it no less time consuming.
However big a pain in the rear this process may be, it’s kind of like printing business cards; it’s social media 101 and must be done. As you’re entering in your blog description for the bajillionth time and lamenting the fact that you ever created a blog in the first place just think of all the new readers you’ll be reaching and the community of bloggers you’ll instantly be grouped with. That should give you the enthusiasm to keep going, besides keep it up and maybe one day you’ll be able to hire someone to do your blog directory submissions for you; one can always hope, right?
