      Hi,

      I am new here, and I just made my first site. I saw the notice that posts should get roughly 5 shares each- are you ever worried that yours won’t get that?

      How do you promote them?

      No I am not, because I happen to be a user to four social sites and so I only need one more share to get 5 shares.

        I am as well, but I don’t want to flood all of them with my posts-my facebook for example is mainly for personal use. That has never been my style. I may make special twitter for exactly that blog and try to connect to people interested in it.

      There are groups that will share for you and also many blog sharing groups on facebook. You can share via any social site you have.

      We do have a sharing exchange group if you need help sharing. There are also blog groups on Facebook to post.

      There are many options to gain points, I agree, but other than referrals, posts are yet the highest. If it only comes down to socializing and making groups, it would take a long time to gain anything.

      No, its really not that hard. Its an Average of 50 shares per 10 posts. Not all posts have to have the 5 shares… some posts can be shared more. Just open more social accounts and you’ll be fine without spamming people. You can also email to indviduals the blog posts..and that counts as a “share”, which means if you email it to 5 different people thats 5 shares.

      Yes. I am worried. You know, we all have different ways to earn here. Some people are busy doing there post too.

      We do have a sharing group called sharing exchange if anyone needs help sharing your posts. It’s a share 4 share group! 😉

      Most social media sites are worthless. So, I’m worried about making the 5 share average myself. Social media sites are only good if people actually use them, and everyone that shares my interests tend to stick to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Is YouTube even a qualifying social media site?

      Consider saving post links on Delicious and adding your blog to some of the blog directories to gain a little traffic. The more traffic you generate, the more likely someone else will share your entries.

      Umm… I was under the impression this rule meant that YOU, the blogger had to share your posts 5 different times…

      That is what I was told, and that’s what I’ve been doing. I mean, we really can’t help how our shares go as far as other people sharing them, after all so that wouldn’t make much sense to me as a rule.

      It did take me a lot of time setting up 5 different social media sites (aside from FB because I did NOT want to share my posts to my personal FB page as my friends would think of it as spammy sharing each post like that, especially since most of them don’t give 2 sh*ts about reading about crochet anyways. Lol.

      It does take me quite some time to share 5 different times each time I post, and I have to admit, that has prevented me from bothering blogging any. But I am working on it. It’s just SO time consuming to do all that sharing. Maybe it depends on your internet speed and time to log in to all those sites, share and close out, but it’s complicated to me.

        Haven’t tried sharing though. But I do hope we’ll get credit for that.

      From what I understand you are able to share with same media many times. That is way I share on different facebook groups.

      I managed to get the 5 per post but using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and StumbledUpon. They all seemed to work. Now that I have the Personal Blogger badge, I don’t have to post them any more. Until I start the business blogger one, but that will take some time as the business opportunities here are pathetic.

      You can share on Facebook groups as well as google groups too if you are worried about spamming your page.

      Do we need to share out our posts? I did not know that. Can I have the link to the instruction?
