How to Support the Blogger in Your Life

How to Support the Blogger in Your Life

How to support the blogger

Ever wondered how to support the blogger in your life? You know it’s important to them, but you’re not sure where to start? Or are you a blogger who finds themselves wishing your nearest and dearest knew how to support you with your blogging endeavours?

Good news, I’ve made this post to help. So, either study it carefully so you know how to support the blogger in your life, or send it to your friends and family to point them in the right direction.

Read the posts

Unless you have been specifically told to never goΒ near our blog, this is the very least you can do to show you care. We might get a little shifty if you mention them in person because it feels a bit strange. Don’t worry, though, we love you for it. There are days when we feel like nobody is reading what we’re writing so it’s always comforting to know you are.

Share the posts

Again, unless we’re trying to hide our content from people we know, go ahead and shout about it. Not only does this show you’re proud of what we are doing, but it also helps us to reach new people. Both my mum and dad regularly share my content on Facebook (bless them, they’re the best), and it always brings in a couple of extra views.

Take an interest

As you would with anything else, ask questions. There is nothing worse than when you’re really enthusiastic about something and the other person gives you nothing back. So, if the brilliant blogger in your life starts talking about something, try throwing a few questions out there to continue the conversation. If we pitch an idea for a post to you, be willing to discuss it and help us to develop it into something great.

Better yet, START the conversation.Β Questions you could ask:

  • What posts do you have lined up for the future?
  • What are your blogging goals for this month?
  • How many views did you have today?

Do the little things

The thing bloggers struggle with is time, and never having enough of it. If you can lighten the load a little, I beg of you – do it. You’ll be in the good books immediately. Perhaps you can take care of making dinner, entertain the kids or maybe take the dog out for a walk so we can squeeze in an extra 30 minutes. Whatever works!

If our heads are in our laptops, bring us a cup of tea or coffee, or a glass of water and a snack. Sometimes, we fall into “the zone” and these little things pass us by. We like to know you’ve got it covered.

Another good thing to do is if you happen to see something which could help us, send it our way! Neal regularly sends me articles with blogging tips and my dad has sent me a blogging planner printout, to name a couple of examples. It’s a simple way of showing support, but it means so much.

Accept our stationery obsession

We’re bloggers. We write. The growing pile of notebooks and increasing collection of pens are now a fact of life. Planners are essential. We need all the stationery we’re buying. They go hand in hand – it’s not our fault.

(I don’t make the rules, sorry.)

Celebrate our victories

If we are bursting with pride when we share something with you, plaster a smile across your face and get happy, too. Whether it’s a follower milestone, a new comment, a sponsored post, affiliate sale, or anything else which makes us giddy, it’s a big deal. That’s why we are so excited.

If you’re not sure why it’s so exciting, don’t be afraid to ask. Don’t just brush it off with “oh right”. This links back to taking an interest. A much better response is “that sounds great, what does it mean/involve?”

Take it seriously

Blogging is hard work. It involves so much dedication. It’s also something that is very important to the people who do it. For me, it has been life-changing. It sparked something in me which I’m not sure I would have discovered otherwise, and I’m glad every day that Neal sees and appreciates the importance.

When we have our eyes glued to the screen, it’s because we have a post to finish and share with the world. If we tell you we need to take part in Twitter chat, we need to. It’s important to help us grow. Basically, if we are putting our all into it, please don’t laugh at us. We’re heading towards a greater goal, whatever it may be, and it matters. Got it? Great!

Remind us it’s okay to take a break

If you notice we’re getting overwhelmed, it’s okay to tell us to step back and have some fun. We’re probably lost in a blogging bubble and it might not always go down well, but know we appreciate it. If we haven’t come up for air for a while, suggest going for a walk or watching something on TV. We’ll resist at first, but probably thank you later.

Be there for us

Some days, blogging is tough. Our views are low, and we feel like it’s not worth it. We start comparing ourselves to other bloggers and it seems like we have nothing to offer.Β If we start talking negatively about it all, we need you to be our biggest fan. Remind us why we started, or of the last success we had which made us ridiculously happy. Cheer us on because this shows you understand it matters to us and we shouldn’t let a bad day or week undo all of our hard work.

Understand the importance of the community

I have met people through blogging who I consider friends, even though we haven’t met (yet). I care very strongly about their success. This sometimes means I use my time to help them and answers their questions. Other times, it means I want to read their blogs and comment.

While sitting and socialising might not look like we are working, it comes as part of the package. So, if we start talking about blogging pals, don’t reply with “they’re just someone from the internet.” They’re a real person ON the internet who we have connected with and enjoy talking to. They’re supporting us and we want to do the same for them.

Knowing how to support the blogger in your life is vital because we all need a little help sometimes. It might look easy (although, if you’re living with a blogger, you should know it’s not by now) but it can be very demanding. Knowing we can come to you for the support we need makes all the difference. There’s a lot of comfort to be found in knowing someone is on your side.

    i love this and def think its a huge help when friends get involved to help us bloggers out. they really do so much and it only takes a few minutes too!

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 1:08 pm

      Exactly! πŸ™‚

  • lifetravelsoul 6th July 2018 at 12:57 pm

    I really love this post Ruth! I can relate to the struggles of blogging and how much we need the support of the people in our life. My hubby so far have been very supportive – reading/sharing/liking my post, reminding me to take a break, cooking dinner, etc. He does find it amusing when a blog comment or a Twitter milestone makes me jump for joy:)

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 1:09 pm

      Aww, I’m glad you liked it and I’m so happy to know he’s been supportive! Neal is the same, and it makes such a huge difference. πŸ™‚

  • Leah 6th July 2018 at 1:17 pm

    Ruth, it’s like you’re reading my mind!! I was fervently nodding at every single point on this list and I will definitely be sharing your post with everyone I know! I always feel a little awkward whenever anyone mentions my blog to me in person, but I always feel very grateful knowing that people are actually taking the time to read it. Thanks for sharing this post πŸ™‚

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 2:12 pm

      Aww, yay! I remember the first time someone asked me about my blog in person, I just froze and didn’t know how to respond. It is definitely nice to know someone is reading it, though. πŸ™‚

  • Laura Allen 6th July 2018 at 1:20 pm

    These keys are SO true! It’s definitely hard having a blogger friend who isn’t supportive…seriously so hard. However, I am just as obsessed with stationary as you are πŸ™‚ it crack me up how alike we all are!!! Thanks for sharing!

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 2:13 pm

      I’ve been fortunate that people in my life have been supportive, but other bloggers have told me some of their stories which is where I got this idea from. Stationery is the best! πŸ˜€ Thanks for reading.

  • Brittany 6th July 2018 at 1:23 pm

    This is so needed! When people support bloggers, it allows us to connect with more like-minded individuals and truly make a difference. Thank you for sharing this.

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 2:14 pm

      Absolutely! Thank you for reading πŸ™‚

  • Chelsea 6th July 2018 at 2:31 pm

    I think reading other bloggers’ posts is the easiest way you can support them, and leaving genuine comments!! I love following up on others’ blogs without them asking….like genuinely!

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 4:09 pm

      Very true! πŸ™‚

  • Nicole 6th July 2018 at 2:43 pm

    I love this!!! Sometimes I don’t think that my husband understands my “hobby”. He doesn’t really get the need to work so hard on something that is supposed to be enjoyable.

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 4:10 pm

      I think my boyfriend was the same at first, and then when he realised how seriously I was taking it, he came around and has been great since! I do think blogging takes more time and dedication than some other hobbies, but it’s also very rewarding! πŸ™‚

  • Bexa 6th July 2018 at 3:48 pm

    I love this post so much Ruth! πŸ’– I agree, it’s so important that those closest to us IRL supports our blogs. I’m lucky that my boyfriend reads my posts and lets me know if there are any spelling mistakes (there usually is something! πŸ˜‚). It’s so nice your mum & dad share your posts on FB, my dad will sometimes retweet my tweets, he only has about 10 followers but I think it’s very sweet of him ☺️. Fantastic post girl and yes, buying all the stationery is definitely an essential! 😘 xx

    • ruthinrevolt 6th July 2018 at 4:11 pm

      Thanks, Bexa! Aww, bless your boyfriend and your dad, that is so lovely. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you have such a great support system behind you!

  • Caitlyn Browning 6th July 2018 at 4:51 pm

    This is an awesome post! Having just started out blogging more consistently a few months ago I really felt understood with this blog post. Thank you so much for this amazing post!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:14 pm

      Aww that’s wonderful! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

  • Elizabeth Auwarter 6th July 2018 at 5:01 pm

    I love this post! I have gotten super confused before when someone mentioned they read my blog to me. It felt surreal, but it made me so happy! Thank you, Ruth, for being such a wonderful and encouraging blogging pal! I really love these suggestions and will definitely share them!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:14 pm

      Yeah – it definitely takes some getting used to. Awww! Thank you for reading, Elizabeth πŸ™‚

  • Becky @ Disneyinyourday 6th July 2018 at 5:15 pm

    I am fortunate to have some great friends who support me and my blog really well. They are the best! I have some others who don’t seem to care as much, and that does bum me out because it really is such a big part of my life.

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:15 pm

      I’m glad you’ve got some people who are supporting you, though – it’s just a shame not everyone can manage it!

  • lily 6th July 2018 at 5:59 pm

    Such a good post! That stationary one is so me haha, just one more cute planner won’t do any harm will it?!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:15 pm

      Exactly! πŸ˜€

  • s.e. taylor 6th July 2018 at 7:25 pm

    As I was rambling on about my blog for the 100th time, my sister finally asked me “WHAT is a blog?” lol. I never realized that some people just don’t know what I’m talking about. I liked that she showed interest. Even though I keep my blog anonymous and away from RL people, they are supportive and encouraging of me.

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:16 pm

      Aww bless her! I’m glad they are supportive and encouraging. πŸ™‚

  • Lindsay 6th July 2018 at 8:24 pm

    I adore this post. Sometimes I feel like it’s hard to express my feelings of being a blogger, as it feels both like a hobby and a growing business, but appreciate when people treat it as something real. And the stationary note is SO true–the pile of notebooks and pens I have is ever growing! Thanks for sharing!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:18 pm

      Absolutely! It’s so nice when people take it seriously and engage with the conversation about it. I think I’m going to need an entire room for all my stationery soon πŸ˜‰

  • Janita 6th July 2018 at 8:24 pm

    Great post Ruth!! So much truth. It is very hard finding support as a blogger. And it’s kind of scary asking for it. You made some very great points and I agree with β€œreminding us we can take a break part!” I often feel if I take a break I’m slacking, and my husband has been very good with reminding me that it’s ok!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:19 pm

      It is definitely hard to ask for it because it seems like a lot of people have their own perceptions of blogging, or don’t know anything about it. I’m glad your husband reminds you to take breaks! Neal is the same, but he also isn’t afraid to tell me to get some work if I do actually start slacking πŸ˜‚

  • kallie 6th July 2018 at 10:21 pm

    These were so great. As a blogger you need to give support to get it in return. It’s one of the best lessons I’ve learned!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:21 pm

      Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

  • Ellaine 6th July 2018 at 11:44 pm

    Love this! Makes me wanna cry after I realized all the hardwork we are putting into a single blog post. There are some, like you, who really takes time to show support for other bloggers. I guess the community need more of you! πŸ™‚ thanks for reminding me on this!

    Ellaine | In Betweens

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:20 pm

      Aww, don’t ever underestimate how hard you work to create, maintain and run a blog! It’s a lot of effort. πŸ™‚

  • Shan 6th July 2018 at 11:58 pm

    Bring coffee on a regular basis πŸ˜‚ great post Ruth!

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:21 pm

      I think most bloggers need some source of caffeine pretty regularly πŸ˜‚

  • Alix Maza 7th July 2018 at 4:00 am

    SHARING THE POSTS! We make it so easy and yet most readers don’t. -_-

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 12:22 pm

      Yeah, it can be hard to encourage that, but I’m sure it gets better over time!

  • Katherine 7th July 2018 at 1:43 pm

    This is such a great post and wonderful reminder that even though I’m a blogger, I need to keep up with my blogging friends! I’m so fortunate to have a small group of friends that really β€œget it” and always support me so much. It means the world to me. I think they forget there’s so many little things they can do, too. Saving this to bring up in conversation sometime. πŸ™‚

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 10:53 pm

      Aww that’s such a great comment to receive! πŸ™‚ Thank you.

  • Jean Exum Sauban 7th July 2018 at 2:16 pm

    It does sometimes seem like a lonely job. And I definitely agree that any little way the “load can be lightened” is huge. I’ll differ with you about the coffee and tea though while in the zone. That might be true for a little while that we forget about these things, but with me it won’t be true for long.

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 10:55 pm

      I imagine there are others who agree with you and soon find themselves needing another caffeine fix but I am terrible when I get into the zone – I forget to eat or drink!

  • Shannon|MSnubutterflies 7th July 2018 at 4:07 pm

    Love this post! Blogging is a lot of work. The blogging community has been super supportive. I just wish I could get a little of that from friends and family. Aside from my sister ( who is awesome ) I don’t get any support. I suppose to them it’s not a big deal but it means something to me. Just an occasional share would mean the world to me.

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 10:56 pm

      Aww I’m sorry to hear that! The blogging community can become like a second family with their support but it’s nice to know the people in your life have some appreciation of your interest! I hope they come around. πŸ™‚

  • Journalist_in_Training 7th July 2018 at 5:21 pm

    Funnily enough even I just started blogging, I notice its hard to have someone at your back but from the very start my twin brother supported me non stop (even tried to kick me when I planned to skip a week of posting) so I can’t really say I don’t have any support but I think, even a little bit, I can relate to this post regarding only him supporting me. Awesome post btw

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 10:57 pm

      It’s great he supported you! Even having that one person to lean on and encourage you makes such a difference, but I think it’s always nice to have a few people on your side. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your comment!

  • Molly 7th July 2018 at 10:11 pm

    This is such a great post! I’ll be passing this along to my friends and family! Thanks for putting it so well Ruth!

    Lots of love,

    • ruthinrevolt 7th July 2018 at 10:58 pm

      Aww thanks Molly! Hope it helps them to understand and support you a bit better! πŸ™‚

  • Rose 8th July 2018 at 9:59 am

    I love this post. Nowadays when people ask me about my interest and I tell them that I blog they usually stop after the question: what do you write about?
    Lol, sometimes I get so enthusiastic and I can hear my friends thinking: wow, there she goes!
    They try to be supportive, but i don’t think they understand how much effort is put into it, like you mention πŸ˜‰
    Anyways, I’ll keep doing it, and find my fellow writers.
    I 100 % admit to the fact I own too many notebooks πŸ˜‰

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 10:06 am

      Aww, well, I personally love it when people are enthusiastic about what they do, so I think it sounds great πŸ™‚ Finding fellow writers is great, though, and a guaranteed support system at least.

  • Aaliyah 8th July 2018 at 11:32 am

    Really great post! I used to be embarrassed telling people I have a blog and I’m not too sure why but now I just tell them and I’m proud of it! Xx

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 3:42 pm

      I feel like we are all like that when we just start out but I’m glad you’re proud of it now – you should be! πŸ™‚

  • Fiona 8th July 2018 at 11:50 am

    Brilliant post Ruth! I should leave my iPad open on this page permanently I think. You are right about all of it. It’s not just the writing that takes time it’s all the other bits in between. I love getting new notebook and pens πŸ’•πŸ™‚

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 3:43 pm

      Aww thanks, lovely! πŸ’– Getting stationery is one of my favourite feelings in the world. πŸ˜„

  • Kate 8th July 2018 at 12:50 pm

    Sigh sigh sigh, your post makes me realise how little support I get from my boyfriend blogging wise πŸ˜€

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 3:43 pm

      Then make sure you show him this to give him some direction πŸ˜‰

  • Cordelia Moor 8th July 2018 at 2:36 pm

    I love this! The stationary obsession is already too real, and all I want is for someone to bring me cup after cup of tea when I’m stuck in ‘blogger’ mode!

    Cordelia || cordeliamoor.squarespace.com

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 3:46 pm

      Yep, luckily Neal is well trained in that one so he knows when to bring me cups of tea. I must get a certain look on my face or something πŸ˜‚

  • Michele 8th July 2018 at 3:41 pm

    Great tips! Support from our loved ones is essential!

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 3:50 pm

      Definitely πŸ˜€

  • Kristin 8th July 2018 at 3:59 pm

    I love this so much, Ruth! I wonder how casually I can get some friends and family to read this post…. πŸ˜‚

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 7:42 pm

      Hmmm… maybe forget the casual approach and just go straight in for it and send it their way? πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

  • Hannah 8th July 2018 at 4:24 pm

    Love this post. My boyfriend is supportive by taking insta/blog pics for me and understanding why I’m always on my phone interacting on Twitter. He’s excited I have a mentally stimulating hobby.

    P.S. I’m one of those people who hides the fact I have a blog from people I know. My boyfriend and sisters are the only ones who know.

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 7:43 pm

      Aww, I understand why you choose to keep it to yourself – I thought of doing that at first but then I decided I’d slip up at some point because that’s how I am πŸ˜‚ I’m glad your boyfriend supports you, though!

  • Jess 8th July 2018 at 4:53 pm

    This is such a lovely post and I completely agree with all the things you’ve listed! Another thing people could do for us is to take cute blogging photos of us! I always struggle for pictures of me for my blog!

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 7:44 pm

      That’s a good one! πŸ™‚ To be fair, I always tell my boyfriend I don’t like the pictures he takes of me so maybe that’s why he hasn’t offered…

  • Kayla Pettigrew 8th July 2018 at 6:27 pm

    As soon as I read “the endless pile of notebooks and stacks of pens” I lost it bahahaha laugh out loud moment! My husband complains all the time how I’ve got to much stationary, and I look at him like he’s crazy. I’m going to get him to read this!! So helpful for those who don’t know what it means to blog on the daily. One of your best posts yet, Ruth! Keep em’ coming!

    • ruthinrevolt 8th July 2018 at 7:45 pm

      Yep, Neal is exactly the same but he’s given up trying to argue. He asks if I really need it, I say yes and that’s that. πŸ˜‚ Thank you so much, lovely!

    This post is honestly amazing, I wish I could send this to every person I know! I’m kind of in awe at what to say because It’s just so perfectly written and accurate, haha! I’m so lucky to have the partner I do as he does all these things. He’s my personal photographer/tripod, brainstormer, soft light holder, blog-prop buyer and so much more, isn’t it amazing to have someone who supports your dreams so much?

      Me too! Now it just gives me even more of an excuse to buy things…

  • Lisa McLachlan 8th July 2018 at 10:23 pm

    Ah Ruth, where do I start? This is quite possibly THE best post about blogging and what it takes to be a blogger I have ever read. Alan is great in some areas (refreshments, sorting tea) but he takes a dim view of the amount of time I spend on blogging and related social media. “Titting about on your bloody phone again,” is a common complaint πŸ˜‚ I’m going to send him your post so he can see how much his support means to me. Thank you for a brilliant and inspiring post! X

    • ruthinrevolt 9th July 2018 at 9:51 am

      Thank you so much, Lisa! I really appreciate you leaving such a kind comment!

      Neal does sometimes get frustrated if I’m on my phone a lot, but I’ve calmed down a bit with it now, so I don’t go on it as much when we spend time together at the weekends. I think it took some getting used to because, before I started blogging, I barely ever used my phone and now it’s glued to my hand! πŸ˜‚

  • Thatsmeonline 8th July 2018 at 10:24 pm

    I love this post, I always appreciate when my friends make an effort to support my content or chat to me about it and I notice when they don’t! Love the stationary one haha!

      Same. I think some of my friends found it weird bringing it up before but we’re all getting used to it now πŸ™‚

  • Alexis 10th July 2018 at 2:42 pm

    YES, to all of these! I’m definitely going to be sharing this post. It’s so important for others to understand how to support us, bloggers.

    • ruthinrevolt 10th July 2018 at 3:18 pm

      Definitely! πŸ™‚

    Great post Ruth! I have found that almost all my friends and family give polite smiles when I tell them about my blog. The part about the planners is so true. I have so many and everytine I go to the store I seem to find another one or a journal. Lol
    I see you’re in Scotland. I live in the U.S and dream of coming to visit one day! For awhile there I was quite obsessed. πŸ˜„
    Take care!

      Awww, I hope you get to come over some day! πŸ™‚ It’s funny, because I went through a phase of being obsessed with the U.S. when I was a teenager!

    What a fun post! And I love when my loved ones do the little things to help me out!! (And of course we need the stationary!!) ❀️

    • ruthinrevolt 17th August 2018 at 9:16 am

      It makes such a difference! πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading and commenting!

  • Deep questions 27th August 2018 at 12:41 pm

    Amazing! Makes me realize all the hardwork we are putting into a single blog post. There are some, like you, who really takes time to show support for other bloggers. I guess the community need more of you! πŸ™‚ thanks for reminding me on this!

  • Sarah 18th September 2018 at 3:46 pm

    Well said! I am going to show this to my husband, he does pretty well supporting me with my blog but I don’t think he fully understands what it takes to do what I do, or why the housework gets ignored some days because I have to get a post done. My grandma is another huge supporter of my “article writing” even though she doesn’t quite understand blogging as a whole. She loves having my sister show her my latest post and then talks about it when we call each other, it makes me feel so good about it.

    • ruthinrevolt 18th September 2018 at 8:37 pm

      I think a lot of people don’t fully understand it because they don’t do it. Your Grandma sounds so sweet, though, that’s really made me smile!

  • Nicole B. 18th September 2018 at 4:13 pm

    Yes! Thank you for this!

  • Vox 18th September 2018 at 10:32 pm

    These are some excellent suggestions! I TRY not to ask friends and family to share our blog/songs/videos, but it is super nice when they do. But I would NOT want them asking how many visitors have stopped by, since we have quite a ways to go to get our traffic where we are proud of it. πŸ˜† But having them support us in any of these other ways is really cool. Thanks for sharing.

  • Emma Gilbert 19th September 2018 at 6:03 am

    So much yes to this. Great post and I relate to every single point here.

  • Janja 6th December 2018 at 11:40 am

    Wonderful post! It means so much when someone mentions that they have read my latest post and loved it. Support is so important here,

    • ruthinrevolt 7th December 2018 at 12:20 pm

      Absolutely! πŸ™‚
