Have you decided to start a blog? How do you make it a success? How do you get people to notice your blog and improve your statistics? Here are a few simple guidelines to increase your readership.
Blog, Not a Personal Diary
Do not make the blog your personal diary with the mundane day-to-day happenings in your life. Unless you want to restrict your readership to your family and friends, make your blog interesting and general.
Make it Useful
You are likely to attract more readers if your blog answers people’s questions. Conduct a search on what people want to know. If the answers are within your capabilities, why not write a post on them? Questions like, ‘How to open an account with Facebook?’ and ‘How to start a blog?’ are still being asked.
What Are You Passionate About?
If you seek an outlet to vent your inner desires and also gain a decent readership, write on what you are passionate about. Your passion for topics is likely to be displayed in your blog and well received by like-minded people.
Technical Stuff Sells
If you are crazy about iPhones, iPods or cars, you may write numerous posts on them. Share your technical knowledge with others and gain updates on the latest happenings in your area of interest.
Your Take on Relationships
If you are neither a technical wizard nor have an inclination towards social networking sites, start a blog on relationships. Present your point of view on different relationships and how to deal with problems. Offer tips and advice. You may be surprised by the increase in readership.
You and Your Kitchen
You may try different recipes in your kitchen. How about sharing your creativity with others? Your entire blog may be based on food and recipes or you may devote a category to it. There is no dearth of readers for a good recipe.
Attracting new readers to your blog is difficult. Retaining old readers is still more difficult. A good knowledge on your topic and innovative thinking could help you gain both.
