How to Connect With Local Bloggers and Build Community
A great start to connecting with your local bloggers is to make sure that your blog includes your region or state. A great place to include this is in your “About” page.
Another great way to make sure local bloggers are finding you is to blog about local happenings and include the different locations you’re visiting and writing about.
Don’t forget, include your location in all your social profiles as well. Just remember, only share what you’re comfortable with though. For example, if you don’t want people to know what city you’re in, maybe share the next largest metropolitan area or just share your state.
