I would probably include using Twitter to connect with a potential blogger. Start by following them, retweet their latest posts, add commentary to the retweets and then start the dialog via Twitter.
Aug 17 Posted 5 years ago Hi Kelli, thanks for commenting!
One of the things I've discovered in my career is that some of the most influential bloggers aren't the one's with the huge traffic numbers or gaudy, high profile sponsors. They are the passionate individuals who have a small, but intensely loyal group of readers who trust what they say. They may have also attracted other bloggers as loyal readers, who will share and spread great posts and reviews.
That is part of what I was trying to get at in my post - too many marketers look at the subscriber numbers first, and end up ignoring some fantastic though smaller blogs who can end up having tremendous impact in the long-term.
Keep up the blogging and share great stories.
