At its core, blogging is a social endeavor.
The idea is to draw people in and share your knowledge, services or a product you may have created. The thing is, no matter how compelling your topics are, or how brilliantly you craft your posts, if you forget the social aspect, you might continue to hear crickets. If you want to keep a blog audience engaged, then you need to do a little more than just write like Hemmingway.
Here are a few tips that will help you make a good blog great.
Regularly read and comment on other blogs.
You most likely already know other blogs within your niche or that cover complimentary topics. You have some favorites that you really admire. Excellent – now is the time to become a regular commenter on those blogs. Some important things to keep in mind while doing this:
- Make sure you create a professional name for commenting and link to your own blog in your comment profile, but stop there at any other self-promotion.
