    Every blogger wishes to connect with superstars but few know how to do it. The desperate blogger goes about connecting with pros the wrong way; no, you cannot impress a successful blogger by desperately pitching your guest post, or be begging them to accept your guest post. To receive the immense benefits of becoming friends with an influential blogger you must woo these folks in the prosper fashion.

    If you want more traffic than you can ever dream of you must think through your relationship building strategy to impress these folks. You can connect with a superstar blogger by following these 5 simple tips.

    How to Connect with Successful superstar bloggers?

    Comment – First point of connection

    Comment like crazy to meet more bloggers and expand your presence online. If you are quick to connect with many bloggers you eventually start to meet superstars of the blogging world. This is not some magical, mystical secret, how to meet top shelf bloggers. Simply post comments on many relevant blogs each day.

    Make each comment valuable. Drive-by’s like “Hi how are you great post!”, are not going to impress people. Use 1 to 2 full paragraphs to make your point.

    These type of comments solidified my rep in the blogosphere. I no longer leave such lengthy comments only because I have too many guest posts, articles and post for my blogs to write.

    Chat & interact on Social networking sites

    Chatting on social networking websites is how I became buddies with up and coming superstar blogger Zion Amal Rafeeq. After commenting on his blog and writing 1 guest post he started chatting with me on Facebook. Over a few days we began to form a strong relationship. Now we chat with one another every few days, checking in, bouncing ideas off of one another and helping each other succeed in the blogging world. You can chat on twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google Plus. The network matters not. Get to know people better and you might just develop a strong connection with an influential, superstar blogger.

    Share Posts Aggressively

    I am known for sharing posts like mad, both my own and posts by others. If you want to succeed in catching a popular blogger’s attention you better promote the stuffing out of yourself and your buddies. By promoting you, folks see you believe in yourself. By promoting other people you grow your readership quickly, because many of the people you promote return the kind act and promote you in return.

    This is a big reason why I have over 24,000 followers on twitter. I retweeted people aggressively for many years before I saw these sizable numbers.

    Whatever you want, give it away. Do you want traffic? Help people to get traffic, and you will find yourself meeting more superstar bloggers as your influence and reach grows.

    Guest Post like Mad

    I write 1 guest post daily. I used to write 3 guest posts daily. Writing guest posts helps you strengthen relationships with superstar bloggers. Like I mentioned earlier, I met Amal by guest posting on his blog after leaving a few comments on his website.

    This relationship blossomed because I took the time to write a guest post. I have submitted guest posts to many authority blogs because I know the power in creating value for a large, targeted audience.

    It would probably take me a long time to grow my business through my blog alone but when I decided to guest post, well, things happened quickly. I met more people than I could have imagined because I was exposed to hundreds of thousands to even millions of readers, when you count how many guest posts I have written for some seriously big audiences.

    Become a Superstar Blogger Yourself

    OK, this one is difficult for many struggling or inexperienced bloggers to grasp. To meet a superstar you need to become a superstar yourself. This means doing superstar type stuff.

    My superstar resume:

    • I have written up to 24 blog posts in 1 day.
    • I have created over 1000 youtube videos – yes, they shut down my account – in only a few years.
    • I estimate that I have written over 100 guest posts.
    • I have easily created over 3000 posts on my blogs. Probably closer to 4000 posts.
    • I have achieved all of this within 3 years.

    Superstars are driven. Superstars push themselves and never rely on other people to make them a superstar. Sure, you might receive a nice break, such as an endorsement from a star, but if you really want to catch people’s attention blog like crazy, network like crazy, meet more people and you will become a star in your niche, quickly.

    Hey Ryan,
    I was rushing to this Guest Post here on ShoutMeLoud after seeing your post on Facebook.
    And I knew it would be another Great Article like you always do. But thanks a lot for mentioning about me. You always try to be the Example while teaching something.

    And about your way of writing with quantity without compromising the quality, that was what helped me to burst through my Writer’s Block which was haunting me for about a month.
    I think I’m the one who started calling you Mad Guest Poster! hehe :D But I’ve heard so many people name you that on Discussions and Social Networks. Now that’s some Super Power. :)

    Help and Gain help!! Right?

    Again thanks a lot for that wonderful post bro! I will really give it a try to connect with Awesome Bloggers. By The Way, I’m pretty sure this ONE Guest Post on ShoutMeLoud will be far more worth than all other Guest Posts you’ve done. Let’s hope that way. Good luck :)

    HI Ryanbiddulph,

    This post is great. But a little doubt, while commenting how to ensure that our comment is not a spammer one. One of your blog post about “writing great blog comments” suggest that we should not add links to our comments, Got It. But, recently I commented on a blog. I didn’t add any links into it, I just praised the post. When I commented my comment appeared but when I checked the post again after sometime my comment was not there. What could have been the reason for this?

    Ryan Biddulph

    Idris I have no idea dude. Could be one of many reasons but if you just leave good comments most bloggers can see this ;) Thanks!

    Hi Ryan,
    My love for reading you brings me to this blog today!!
    Though it is an extremely popular Indian blog, I havent commented here too often.
    But seeing you here, I just had to come!! :D :P
    Its great to know that you wrote upto 24 posts in a day.
    But you know WHY & HOW you were able to do that?
    That was because you write about things you KNOW.
    And you dont have to refer to the internet sources like most of us when you sit down to write.
    When I bare my heart out while sharing my freelancing experiences, it takes me only 30-40 minutes to write a 1000 word article as compared to the 2 hours I need for a usual write-up!
    That makes all the difference! :)

    Hi Ryan,
    You are right to be successful one needs to interact with the successful people….They are like the inspiration…and to connect with them one needs to set a value for himself/herself too…as the successful people always have tons of despo followers, and he/she needs to be standalone….your article is great in deed, as you mentioned important areas and explain it with utter simplicity….

    There is a popular saying “Live and Let Live”….and in the blogging world its like as Amol mentioned “Help and get Help”……

    Hi Ryan, i really love this article. Connecting with a super star bloggers is not an easy task as its takes time though its worthy of being achieved.
    In life, every connection do start with a spark. In the field of blogging, i think most connections do start with commenting, guest posting in super star blogs and other stuffs like that. Another thing is, to connect with a superstar blogger, we need to promote them, share their stuffs e.t.c.
    Thanks for the article.

    Yes, I like commenting most of them. Another nice thing of commenting is that you can share your ideas in a short form without writing a full article.

    Hi Ryan, really nice tips on becoming a superstar blogger. Your resume that you posted at the end is something to die for. I just had one query, I know blogging is about writing but then the reality is that blogging is also opening to everyone, its more like the “American Dream” cliché, so we can also be someone who is not a natural born writer. What do you suggest for people like us, who have the ideas but aren’t writers with flair?

    Ryan Biddulph

    Practice writing Hirak. I was a horrible writer 5 years ago lol. Thanks!

    To ensure that visitors to be able to really feel an association with you, and also for your blog to show into a community of like-minded individuals, you should look at how typically you happen to be calling all of them. At their most rudimentry levels, this translates to how usually an individual revise your blog.

    This is the good tip you mentioned absolutely correct ….

    Thanks for the good information to bloggers keep share some more information ryanbiddulph.

    24 blog posts in one day, really thats a great effort by you. I agree with you, it very necessary to connect with top bloggers and to participate in those discussions they participate in. This will help us to make some sort of identity in their eyes. And after that if we want help sometimes then they will definitely help us.

    Hi Ryan,
    I have seen many bloggers and many guest posts.This post is really a different one.
    I had observed one thing in my life
    ” Take Advice from only those people who are successful ”
    But if we don’t know successful persons to take advice , then we will sure not achieve that much we deserve.
    A great way explained to remain in contact with successful bloggers.
    Thanks
