Day 2: Connect with Other Bloggers

Identify those blogs in your niche that are authority sites. These are the ones that continually rank high in Google for keywords and phrases you want to rank for also. Reach out to these blog owners. Make a connection. Let them know you are in the same market, and that you are open to joint venture suggestions and partnerships.

You will find the majority of people you reach out to will not respond. However, out of every 10 or so bloggers you contact, you will get 2 or 3 warm responses. These are the people you are going to offer to help, by doing things like writing guest posts (day 17 of the challenge). Once you help another blogger expand his or her reach, that person will be more likely to help you build your blog as well.
