For your blog to survive it needs YOU but you may lose interest and put a halt on what could be a world-class blog. Keep reading and find out how to keep interest and keep your blog alive
Let me start out by saying that as of right now that what every blogger expects is immediate traffic some expect it in the hundreds, some expect thousands, but here me say that those who expect it in the tens, or ones will survive longer. Truth is that unless you immediately start advertising your blog you wont get lots (if any) traffic at first.
Have you seen how I’ve put some words in bold? That’s because I want to get my voice inside your head, I want you to hear me as if I’m on a stage at one of those raising self esteem rallies, people get comfortable when your talking to them one-on-one.
When you make the reader believe that you are both right there, Both of you are sitting in a chair somewhere, and you make them believe that your actually talking to them, and just them then they will feel comfortable reading, continue reading, and probably read more of your articles, or stories.
That’s just part of it though. You absolutely need good subjects and articles about interesting things. And at first your articles will probably suck, mine did, but don’t delete bad articles, the more articles you have the better your SEO is, and better SEO will help get you more views in the future.
Another small tip is too include pictures, links, and whatever else you can add. But never overdue it.
If you have the money and you want immediate views and recognition then use stuff like Google Adwords. Or facebook ads, twitter ads, or Instagram ads. For a daily price it brings a certain amount of people to your site.
This will be costly, but when your website receives a good amount of views you are more likely to stay interested, and keep your blog alive.
Social media advertising for free. If you can tweet a certain number of times a day, or post a certain number of times per day, you can build up an online following. Just take 3 minutes every hour and tweet or reply to something. Whatever you can do to raise awareness that you are out there.
Ask yourself this, “how easy is my blog to like, comment, and follow” someone may really like what you have to say but not be able to leave you feedback. So review your page, and make sure that it is easy, and convenient.
Don’t Get Discouraged
When someone leaves a comment on your blog telling you that they didnt enjoy your post, then just ignore it.
If at first you don’t receive lots of traffic don’t start thinking that people hate what you have to say. You simply haven’t posted enough. It may take over 20 posts on your blog before you receive any traffic. Don’t worry though it’ll pick up eventually.
And likes on your blog, website, social media accounts, etc. Aren’t something to be worried about either. Some people just simply don’t like posts, or videos even if they enjoyed them.
Helping Other Bloggers
If your blogging platform is WordPress then go find some posts you like, then like them, comment, and follow people.
Like, follow, and comment everyone you like whether you use WordPress, Medium, or Tumblr. Do this because that person probably enjoys blogging, and your like, comments, and follows will help encourage them to keep their blog alive also.
