Thanks BloggerLuv, That Was Awesome!

I gotta admit, I haven’t been as active on the BloggerLuv community as I had hoped for. Sorry! But I just had to write this post to give some link love to BloggerLuv and the man behind it – John Sullivan, who blogs at (latest post: People want to connect so why don’t they?).

The reason I’m doing this post is because I was in need for a few “likes” on my TechPatio Facebook page. You need 25 “likes” before you can get a Facebook username for your page, like – and my “likes” was not looking to increase too much anytime soon and I really wanted to get that username secured so I didn’t had to worry about it anymore. I created a thread on the BloggerLuv community forum, asking for a few likes so I could pass 25 and get my username. Now, a day later, I have 60 “likes” (or “Fans”, as it used to be called). Amazing!

So that’s pretty much why I felt the need to go public and give my thanks to the BloggerLuv community and John Sullican for creating BloggerLuv in the first place.

If you’re a blogger, you should check it out – it’s exactly what the name implies:

Klaus, that’s really awesome. The community came out in full force. Not only did I see your request at BloggerLuv, I also got a recommendation from Karen @BlazingMinds just as I was about to login to Facebook and give you the like. Now that’s what I’m talking about!!

BloggerLuv is a great community and I’m proud to be a part of it. Thanks for spreading the news.

Hi Ileane. Yup, that was full support πŸ™‚ And also thanks to you for your help and Karen @ BlazingMinds too of course.

Awesome indeed. Looks like this is one community to get serious about. I’ve usually joined a lot of communities of this kind in the past and then forgotten all about it thereafter. I think I need to search my groups db to see if I’ve also opened an account with Bloggerluv (if not, I certainly will create one). Your story here of the awesome support just inspired me to renew my efforts at being active again in the blogging community.

Hi James,

I know what you mean about joining a lot of communities and then forgetting about them shortly after. But not all communities might apply to everybody, so joining a lot is the only way of finding out which ones we like πŸ™‚ Be sure to give BloggerLuv a chance, if you haven’t already.

Thanks so much this post made my day it was the 4th so I had to wait to the end of the day to again soak it in and send the post around.
As far as the site. I was really lost and frustrated and I know you know how potpolitics was maybe I just needed to get that all out of my system.
This site covers many of my own needs as I needed something positive in my life now I feel like I work on behalf of the site and bloggers, it has been an amazing experience so far and the site is really just getting started.
I will be moving it to it’s own server mid month and adding some LIVE features I hope it becomes the spot for bloggers around the world and they ALL feel the LUV πŸ™‚ Thanks so much

Hi John. Thanks for your comment and thanks for putting all that time into BloggerLuv!

It sounds like a very good idea to move BloggerLuv to its own server, because, to be honest, I think the slow speed currently at BloggerLuv might scare a few away, because sometimes it can take seconds to open up a page and that makes for a very unpleasant browsing experience πŸ™‚

Good luck with it!

It’s great practice as a blogger that you are appreciating and also offering something in return. Expert blogger’s often give these tips to newbies.

Looking good! Is bloggerLUV only for those who write about blogging?

Klaus @ TechPatio July 5, 2010 at 20:57


Nah, BloggerLuv is for bloggers – you don’t have to blog about blogging πŸ™‚

PS. Please use a REAL NAME when commenting, if you want to keep a URL to your site.

Jamie July 6, 2010 at 02:14

Thanks. Sorry about the url…. Will keep that in mind….

John is a great friend and he always tries to befriend other bloggers! I saw his emails about BloggerLuv, planning to look at it and joined in then I forgot all about it.

Thanks for your post to remind me again – heading to bloggerluv now and join the luv πŸ˜‰

See you inside BloggerLuv πŸ™‚

Melinda July 9, 2010 at 06:04

It is truly a supportive community of bloggers trying to help each other out which is AWESOME! John had a brilliant idea and we all adore him for his efforts and kindness. Ask for a stumble and ye shall received πŸ™‚

Klaus @ TechPatio July 9, 2010 at 10:08

Hi Melina and thanks for visiting πŸ™‚

Yes there’s no question that John had a great idea and ever since I began reading PotPolitics he’s been all “come on, leave a comment and get som link juice”-like, so I’m not surprised that he would be the one to start such a BloggerLuv community. Let’s hope that he can keep it going and growing!
