Quick Fix

I stumbled upon this site of blog promotion tips while web surfing, and yes searching how to promote my own blog. I found it very useful, mainly because it was simple and common sense.

The main idea was to take it “one post at a time.” The author suggested two steps for a successful target audience: 1) give people what they want or expect, and do it consistently, and 2) add productive comments to other people’s blogs.

While this is the basic and accepted convention for bloggers, the article shone new light on how to make the most use out of these tips. The quality of writing is first and foremost, as are the particular ideas of the individual blog. The entries should have a certain tone and theme tying them together, to form what is called a niche in the blogosphere. Secondly, the entries should be published on a regular basis, so that people come to expect material on your page in terms of content and timeliness. As for commenting on others’ blogs, simply writing two words commending the post and referring to your own page won’t do much good. If you’re going to say something, make it insightful and worthwhile, so that the author and readers would want to check out your page. Also, if the topic that you read about really interests you, make it the inspiration for a new post on your own blog.

“If you like your blog’s topic enough then there’s a good chance you won’t mind putting in the time and it won’t feel like work at all,” writes the author. Although there is no quick fix to self-promoting your blog, if you put effort and thought into it chances are people will want to read it.
