Blog Bigger

"BlogBigger was started because of an idea.
The idea was that bloggers should have an easy, free way to promote their blogs. Both large and small blogs want more traffic, and bloggers know that if they had a way to get their foot in the door, readers would love what they are writing.
BlogBigger offers a solution. Bloggers all over the world exchange space on their blog for space on everyone else's blogs."
-Nathan @ Blog Bigger
Yep, that's my Mister! And this is his newest project - Blog Bigger. And it's just what he says it is - a free, easy way to get your blog out there! Here's the gist of how it works:
  • You sign up for Blog Bigger and make a 125x125 banner to advertise your blog. 
  • You put the Blog Bigger widget on your blog's sidebar to showcase 4 up and coming blogs every time someone clicks on your blog (you can see the widget on my right sidebar). 
  • In return, YOUR blog shows up on the widget of every other blog registered on Blog Bigger! 
  • To get even more face time you can refer your friends. Each friend you refer will feature your blog 24/7 for the first month, and all day every Monday after that.
To put is in my husbands words "It's just bloggers helping bloggers blog bigger." Nice, huh? I know, he's pretty much a genius. Not to mention he totally from scratch made this sweet webiste that does all of those fancy things with the click of a button!

I've been blogging for almost 2 years now and I think it's really fun! I love being able to share my ideas with the world (or at least with my mom & grandma!) and I love getting ideas from other bloggers as well. But my sweet husband wants me to be able to do more. That was the motivation behind his idea. To help small time bloggers like me get our voices heard!

So... are you a blogger? Are you ready to step it up a notch and start Blogging Bigger? It's super easy to get started. You can find all the details about the program at BlogBigger.net. Once you realize how sweet this is and realize you want to be one of the first bloggers to sign up, you can go to the "join" page to get your account set up and find simple instructions about installing the Blog Bigger widget (seriously. it's easy.). Once you have everything set up, your account & blog will need to be approved (it will be done within 24 hours) to make sure everything is in good working order and then your banner will be added to widgets all around the web! Also be sure to check out the Blog Bigger Blog (and say it out loud. you'll be glad you did.) for more tips and info to help you keep Blogging Bigger!

Happy Blogging!

  1. Hey cousin. Totally unrelated to the blogging bigger idea. I know you are really sold on concrete counters. Have you heard of Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations $250. It is in the Feb. 2012 Good Housekeeping.

    1. Hey, I just looked it up. It looks awesome! But our laminated tops are really bad (actually broken in one place) and don't reach as far as we want them to. :( Now I really wish we could use them, this would be way easier! Thanks for telling me about it.

  2. AND it's fun to see all the other blogs that have shown your banner!
