Does your blog link appear in your profile? If not, you might want to add it!

 
This may seem like a silly question, but do you know how to make sure your blog link appears in your profile? I have clicked on lots of bloggers profiles from my Followers link and from comments on others blogs and I've noticed a lot of people do not have blogs linked when I know that they are bloggers. This is just my opinion, but if you don't list your blog in your profile, you are potentially missing out on new followers.

I realize that some people may not want their blogs listed and to be honest, I don't allow all of mine to show up for privacy reasons, but you can pick and choose what you want to show up.

If you aren't sure what I'm talking about, log in to your Blogger account and click on your name or picture to take you to your Blogger profile. From there, if your blog is listed under My Blogs, then it will show up for others. If not, you might consider clicking Edit Profile->Privacy, Show My Blogs, and select the blogs you'd like to display. Be sure to save the settings.

If you are using the older style dashboard, you can click on the following link to take you to a tutorial for how to edit your profile. It's pretty much the same, but I thought some of you might need a visual.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions and I'll do my best to help you.

  3. I have had this issue quite frequently. I know they have a blog or their profile picture is their blog button, but they don't have anything linked. I like to follow back or at least check out what they have to offer, but when they don't post a link I don't bother with it.

  4. Thanks for the tip. I just really started getting into blogging more over the summer. How do you all get your blog to show up when you leave a comment? I put the address there but you can't click on it to get to the blog.
