"How Do I..." get more followers? + sundaysocial

What a glorious weekend, am I right?! I am LOVING fall- and it's now in full swing! I broke out my Pumpkin Carving candle from Bath and Body Works yesterday... yay! I decided to join the party:
Since I'm late posting this, my sale will run today through Wednesday! I'm posting a new product soon too! So head over and fill your cart with some goodies!

 It's Sunday, so you know what that means!
This week's topic comes from another suggestion from my readers--
How do I get more followers?
This is a big concern for a budding blogger, no matter who you are! Heck, I'm still trying to build a bigger followship! But today I have a few tips that should help you out!
1. Build a strong foundation- write!
People will follow if they are interested about what you have to say! Honesty is the best policy. Write from the heart and on what you love.
2. Network!
If you want followers, you're going to have to work for it! Comment on other bloggers' posts stating that you now follow them (make sure you do follow them too!). Then give a link to your blog, so they can check it out! Reach out, and others will be interested.
3. Get your name out!
Guest blog, give something to someone's giveaway, and/or work with other bloggers to host fun things! It gets others aware of your blog. You can start by guest blogging for me! Fill out the form HERE.
4. Link it up!
One of my favorite ways to gain new followers is LINKY PARTIES! Find a party you like and you're passionate about, and write a blog post to link up! Some of my favorites include:
Michelle has a weekly Pinterest party on Wednesdays!
Jamie also has a fun weekly party!

Farley has her super fun monthly Currently party! Link up for October soon!

I'm linking up for another weekly favorite today:
Ashley and Neely host this fun linky where you post answers to their specific questions every Sunday! So here we go!
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
I miss the innocence, and just being able to be carefree!
2, Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
Well, my full name is Alexandria, even though I go by Allie. When I was really little, I couldn't pronounce my name, and my parents claim that when I tried to say Alexandria, it would sound like "JaJa" so they call me that sometimes!
What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
I loved playing four square!
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
a teacher :)
5. What was your favorite toy?
Definitely dolls and Barbies!
6. What is the funniest thing that you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
probably the name thing (see #2)

I hope you got some great ideas on how to grow your blog- and learned a little more about me! Have a fabulous Sunday!
