Tips For Increasing Your Blog Readership

So, you have started a blog of your own. Maybe this blog contains your thoughts on business. Maybe this blog talks all about your musings on life. Maybe you are just exploring different books and movies on your blog. Regardless of what your blog covers, you are now beginning to wonder: What do I have to do to get some readers here? A blog can be a lot of fun, but no blog is very useful (or very fun, for that matter) with no readers! Here are a few easy ways to go about adding readers to your blog.

 

1) Become an active reader of other blogs: You are likely to find that many bloggers become loyal to other bloggers. Usually, this loyalty is rooted in similar interests or ideas, but the loyalty is planted when one blogger begins to visit another blogger’s page. Browse around for blogs that catch your eye, blogs that are similar to yours. Get in touch with those who write these blogs, telling them about posts you enjoyed; spend time on these pages, reading posts and commenting. If you do this, these bloggers will probably visit your page also, and in time they will probably become a fan of yours as well.

 

2) Know what your blog is about: Although this seems obvious, you will find that the temptation arises for you to spread your blog over too many areas. If you start with a small focus, you can grow from there over time. With a blog focus that is too broad from the start, you will have a very hard time attracting regular readers. Readers should know what they can expect when they visit your page.

 

3) Make sure readers can expect new posts: This is the area where so many bloggers fail! For a week or two, they blog consistently; then, they get upset because they don’t have a thousand readers, and their consistency fades. You need to be aware that it often takes months of consistent writing, of mostly-unread posts, before your blog can gain traction. But in time, more and more people will trickle in, and your readership will steadily grow. In order for you to reach this point, however, you have to keep blogging regularly.

 

With a sizable readership for your blog, it can be both beneficial and fun. With loyal followers, focused content, and consistent posts, you will reach that place where your readership is sizable and blogging becomes enjoyable.
