Trust: How Bloggers Turned Followers to Friends

Just yesterday I was watching a video clip of Conor Neil.

In the 7 mins video, he talked about trust, how to build it and why it’s important.

As I reflected on the message, I began to see how trust affects human relationships. And one of the most interesting of all was how we get to trust people we meet on platforms like WordPress.

I’ve noticed that some blogs have more comments both in quality and quantity than others.

And it became a puzzle for me that I ask myself, ” what are those guys doing differently that almost all their posts have more thoughtful comments than others?”

Now I know the answer to that question: TRUST

The bloggers who have more people comment on what they post have a relationship of trust with their readers.

And that relationship has made friends out of followers.

“When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant and effective.”

That’s what makes the difference.

If those around you trust you, the world becomes a wonderful place to be. And living becomes an amazing experience.


But how can we build trust?

I know some of you run some of such successful blogs. I would love to hear from you how you were able to create that relationship with your readers, most of whom you have never seen face to face.

How did you do it?

Please share your experiences, thoughts and opinions below. We want to learn from you.

  1. β€œWhat you give, you get”

    When you care more about the content you share, than just sharing something for the sake of sharing or to get more followers, when you honestly spend your time reading the posts others share, I think that is when you create that trust and deep connection with others. ❀️

    Happy Blogging Joshua!! 😊

  2. Trust is a gradual process. It comes as a result of giving someone the benefit of doubt, proving themselves worthy. For me, truthful communication is key. As we know, bad communication tends to tear bonds apart.

  3. I guess as well…over time other bloggers build a picture of who you are. So if you just remember to be yourself, not to put on any pretenses, than other bloggers will pick up on who you are (it’s up to them to decide if they warm to you or not…we are all drawn to different characters).

    So yeah…like others have said…be sincere, be yourself – others will pick up on a certain integrity in your work…they will be picking up on a sense of “you” and even if that’s not perfect (none of us are perfect) it is very endearing and appealing to see someone is a human being.

    I think when we read the experiences of others…we find things that are relatable to our own experiences…and we sense a common bond.

    I hope this is making sense…I am waffling a bit!

    1. A lot! It made a lot of sense.

      Letting one’s humanity and personality show through; being true to yourself and without pretense.

      I strongly agree with that with you dear friend.

      Your opinion and thoughts sound they are from personal experiences.

      And I really do appreciate that πŸŽπŸ™
