    Hi Dan,

    We all know that social media plays a great role in the success of any business. For bloggers it is required to make human relationships with many other bloggers which can bring traffic to their blog. I used to think about using every social tool. But you know it’s not possible.
    I usually try to meet newbies through Twitter.
    The main option to connect with the visitors is commenting. Bloggers can comment at other blogs to get in touch with many successful bloggers.

    Thanks for sharing this informative post.
