So, you have started a blog of your own. Maybe you are using this blog to share your thoughts on business. Maybe you will use this blog to muse about 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? While a blog can be fun, it is not very useful (and not very fun) if no one is reading it! Here are a handful of simple ways to begin gaining readers for 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. Take the time to look around and find blogs that catch your attention, blogs that are a lot like 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. These bloggers will eventually become a fan of yours as well, as they start to visit your page in turn. 2) Know what your blog is about: This can seem elementary, but so many bloggers stretch their blogs far too thin. If you start with a small focus, you can grow from there over time. You will have a hard time attracting regular readers if your blog focus is too broad at the beginning. Make sure readers can know what to expect when they visit your page. 3) Make sure readers can expect new posts: Many bloggers fall short in this important area! Although a lot of bloggers start out strong, blogging consistently, they start to fade after a couple weeks, because their readership has not yet reached the thousands. It can take months before your blog gains traction – months of mostly-unread posts and consistent writing. But in time, more and more people will trickle in, and your readership will steadily grow. In order for this to happen, however, you have to make sure you blog regularly. It can be both fun and beneficial to have a sizable blog readership. While it can take a lot of work to reach that point, once you have arrived at last, you will have loyal followers, focused content, and consistent posts. @@ADSENSE@@.
