New Astrology Blogs Page on Reddit

Posted by on November 9, 2011 at 11:42 amOne Comment

redditThe astrology blogging community has grown so much in the past few years that I find it kind of difficult to keep up with what everyone is doing.  It is hard to sort through all of the articles that are constantly being published on the various astrology blogs, and I know that I’m missing out on some interesting stuff as a result.

I recently found that there is a page for posting links to astrology blogs and articles on Reddit where people can post links to interesting articles that they’ve found. Then readers have the ability vote on the articles and discuss them, which will help to ensure that the really important posts won’t go by unnoticed by the wider community.

This seems like a useful thing to know about for those who read astrology blogs, because it will allow them to find interesting articles that they otherwise might not find. It will also provide an excellent opportunity for bloggers to promote their work and get more exposure for their material.

So, if you have written or read an interesting article recently that you think that other people should know about, please stop by and submit the article to the Astrology page on Reddit.

Reddit Buttons

One of the bonuses of using Reddit is that bloggers can add buttons to their websites so that their readers can submit articles directly to Astrology page on Reddit.  Readers can also use these buttons to vote on articles remotely without even having to visit Reddit.

redditbuttonFrom now on you will see one of these Reddit buttons with the alien logo at the bottom of each of my articles, so if you enjoyed the article please consider submitting it to Reddit or voting it up by hitting the up arrow on the button.  You do have to have a Reddit account in order to submit or vote on articles, but it only takes a few moments to sign up for an account and it’s free.

If you write your own blog you should consider integrating a Reddit button into your site so that people can share your articles.  There are actually a number of different buttons to choose from, and you can view them all here:

If you need some help integrating one of the buttons into your site then just send me a message and I will be glad to give you a hand.

Reddit Astrology Widget

One of the other nice bonuses about the Astrology page on Reddit is that it comes with some widgets that can be placed on blogs and websites which list the top voted astrology articles.

To the right is a screenshot of the widget that lists the top 5 voted articles from the Astrology Blogs page on Reddit right now.

In order to get an astrology blogs widget like this for your website please see this page:

Join us on Reddit!

The most important thing is that in order for this to work we need to have a decent number of people involved, both submitting articles as well as voting and commenting on them on Reddit.  We need the wider astrological community to be involved.

So this is your call to action!  Please take a moment to set up an account on Reddit and then come join us over at the Astrology subreddit.

    This is great, as I just started a blog and now have an opportunity to observe multiple blogs and get in on some conversations. Should make things more interesting.
