17 Ways To Pay It Forward As A Blogger

As bloggers, we have an incredibly large platform, and it’s one that I believe can be used to do a lot of good. I’ve always been a huge fan of the concept of “paying it forward” – responding to a person’s kindness to oneself by being kind to someone else. This can often be seen in little daily kindnesses in real life, like paying for someone’s meal in line behind you or getting donuts for everyone at the office. How can we do this more online though? Here are some easy ways to use your blog and online presence to pay it forward to others.

17 Ways To Pay It Forward As A Blogger

  1. Reach out to a smaller/newer blogger and invite them to guest post on your blog to help gain them some exposure
  2. Share any helpful blog links you’ve found either in a blog post or on social media
  3. Offer to help a fellow blogger out when you see them struggling with something you’re knowledgeable about
  4. When sharing someone else’s content, like a picture or content idea, take the time to give them credit and share their link
  5. Leave a nice comment on someone’s post that points out what you liked about what they wrote – not only will this make them feel good, but it also let’s them know that you actually took the time to read the whole post instead of just skimming
  6. Share uplifting stories on social media so you can brighten someone’s day
  7. Share “Follow Friday” shoutouts on Twitter or Instagram
  8. Email someone who makes your online experience a little better to let them know that you appreciate them
  9. Offer to write a blog post or take pictures for a friend who’s having trouble finding time to create content
  10. Share your blogging “secrets” so others can benefit from your knowledge
  11. Also, share if you’ve ever tried something and it didn’t work out – this could help save people a lot of wasted time
  12. Always try to be kind online and treat others as you would want to be treated
  13. Offer to help spread the word about a fellow blogger’s contest or cause
  14. Join forums and communities for bloggers so you have more opportunities to help others
  15. Reach out to someone who always comments on your blog and let them know how much their support means to you
  16. Give away free goodies to your readers or social following
  17. Collab with a blogger with a smaller following to help bring them some new fans

What’s one way you’d like to use your blog to pay it forward?
