Bloggers Network 10 Tips for Finding Similar Bloggers to Network With
1. Use trackbacks

There are times that you need to take the conversation back to your own blog. Use trackbacks so you can quote from another blogger and add your own comments. This will also highlight the new post to your friend so that they can take a look at what you’ve said.

2. Technorati
Technorati is a blog aggregator. It looks at the tags of posts around the blogosphere and creates lists to make it easy to find the posts that you’re looking for. Read a few of the blogs to get ideas of who is posting items and events within your favorite categories. Get in contact with them and make a great first impression.

3. Give them a call

Everyone may be surrounded by the technological marvels of the internet, but it’s not the only way to communicate with fellow bloggers. Get yourself a Skype account and give out your number when typing everything becomes too much of a hassle. You can network and add that personal touch to your interactions.

4. My Blog Log

You can submit your own blog to be indexed at MyBlogLog and be grouped with people of similar interests. Read some of the other blogs that are there and comment intelligently and succinctly. From canning to retro gaming, there are blogs available to fit your needs.

5. Networking events

There are conventions for bloggers all around the country, complete with guests, music and panelists. This will enable you to find bloggers of all interests, including some with yours. This will give a face to the names and let you know that you’re not alone in the quest for the right words.

6. Blogrolls

You already have blogs that you go to on a regular basis. Usually there are other people’s blogs listed on the sidebars that you are encouraged to view. Check out some of the places that your friends are going to. Maybe you will find something of interest.

7. Comment on their blog

Comment on the blogs that you enjoy with intelligent, insightful content. You will find that others are commenting, and take a look at their blogs. The things that interest these people might also interest you, and you can network with them.

8.Blog catalog

There are many blog aggregators on the web, but this is the largest. You can search blogs by subject to find people who like the same things. Look for interesting things using their search bar, taking note of the blogs that you find in your area.

9. Email

Send a short email to the posters in your favorite blog. Offer insights or something that may interest them. Be polite when you write. Don’t sell your own blog. Tell the other authors how much you enjoy looking at their sites.

10. Make introductions

Being part of a community means that you need to make sure that everybody knows each other. With so many blogs out there, it is rare that you will know everyone else, and that introduction can provide useful connections that you never even dreamed of.

As with the real world, networking with other bloggers takes time and effort. Be persistent, and you will soon have a thriving, active network of your own.
