Blogging does not require pride therefore you need to mingle with other bloggers and build good relationship with them by commenting on their blog. Visit different blogs and let people feel and see you by your commenting. Aside this, commenting also increases your blog traffic.
6. Make Your Blog your Identity
Am very sure that we all know about e-mail signature? Google even lately require this email signature for signing up for Google authorship. Therefore write the name of your blog and your url in email signature.
7. Blog Frequently
Never get lazy. Lazy bones can never turn out to be a successful blogger, because you need to keep updating your blog regularly. Having a fresh content is the key to your blog’s success. It’s not wise to blog just once a week, even if you are posting 10 articles in that just once, it’s not healthy for your blog.
So far you have readers, they are always eager to get information from you and they are expecting something very valuable and new on your blog frequently.
Though at times we have mood swing in which you don’t feel like blogging, but if blogging is your passion, you’ll definitely schedule those times for other things that will surely benefit your blog.
Like me now, I have time tables for my blogging activities, I have days for post and publishing and I also have days for researching for post titles and equally days for writing those post titles that I have piled up. Therefore you just have to keep your blog rolling or else you will lose your readers.
