5 Ways To Grow Your Blog

Hi Guys!  I often get asked for tips on how I grew my audience and how you can grow your blogging audience either by email or via the comments.  I have responded to every comment and or email I was given personally but I didn’t write a post on it as I thought I didn’t have enough knowledge or experience.  I think I am finally at a place where I feel confident enough to share my advice with all of you and I hope you will find it useful.

Respond to comments

I know for me personally that if I leave you a comment on your blog and you respond I often come back to your blog to read your other content.  If you don’t respond though the chances of me leaving a comment on your blog again is zero.  So if you want your audience to be engaged and keep coming back respond to their comments!  I know we all have to go to work, get sick sometimes or are simply having a break from social media which is more than ok but do try your hardest to respond to someone within a week.

Comment on other bloggers posts

This is something I didn’t do much of until the past month and it’s been really fun.  I’ve also found some cool new bloggers who I really enjoy reading like Sabrina from Lipstick and Grace.  I also noticed a spike in my stats as when you comment on other bloggers they may head over to check your blog out and their readers may do so too.

Post regularly

Try and post at least once a week.  If you post less frequently than this your readers may forget who you are and/or un-follow your blog.  I wouldn’t recommend blogging daily either, as this can be a very draining task on the writer and your readers may not enjoy having their inboxes filled daily.

Be passionate

This one is something you cannot make yourself do.  You either have passion or you don’t.  So what I mean by this is if you’re are blogging to gain fame, money or anything alike you most likely won’t experience any success.  You’re readers are very smart and can tell when you really are passionate about what you do.

End your post with a question

Ending a post with a question is a great way to make your readers interact with you.  It’s also nice getting to hear other people’s opinions or perspective on whatever you were talking about.  Try and make sure the question is relevant to the post though otherwise you probably won’t get any interaction.

  4. Very useful tips. Unfortunately, I’ve done all of the above and my blog still doesn’t seem to be moving. I’m contemplating shutting down my blog and just stick to journaling.

  5. Thank you for this. I have been wondering what to do with my Page, I am so sad and lonely because I think that no one wants to read my posts anymore, but, I realised that even if I go MIA for a month, my followers has been very supportive, no one actually hit unfollow and they’ve been reading my blogs every time I post something.
