Yesterday, I discussed about blogging with some friends. Most of the time, when we talk about blogging, we have the tendency to think about bloggers. However, we should not forget that a blog is nothing without the readers. The readers are helping the bloggers promoting their blogs. Here are some tips that bloggers should do for their readers (I got the idea from a friend: http://moonomo.com).
5 Things a Blogger Should Do For Their Readers
– Reply Back Someone appreciate your post and leave a reply on your blog or social site that you’re connected with. Try to reply back your reader. Even a simple thank you would work better. Most blogger doesn’t care who says what- that’s the big mistake ruin their potential readers to come back next time. –
-Find out Whether Your Reader Also a Blogger Do you dig down whether your readers maintain blog or not? Unless you grow your relation with your reader cum blogger you missing a big aspect of blogging. Keep a good relation with other blogger as much as you can, especially who reads you.
– Interact With Your Reader You posting your article on recipe/technology or relationship even your personal musing on various topics. Do you let your reader join with you? Ask them question so they could answer with comments. It could be puzzle, IQ or thoughts on matter that related to what you blog. If you can’t giveaway some prizes/gadgets may be you could at least share their blog/web site link on your sidebar (blogroll).
– Keep Your Blog Readable Fancy color or theme may give nice impression but if your blog isn’t that readable how could your reader feel comfortable to read your post? Take care of appearance so it won’t hurt eyes. Shorthanded writing won’t help them to understand what you’ve said either. Frequent typo or grammar mistake won’t be good experience at all.
– Hunt Your Reader You love to get more readers? So your readers loves too- give them visit as much as you can. They will be happy to know you. Join social network and find people, the more you active the more your readership will grow. More readers will make them happy as they find more thoughts from other reader on your blog. Based on your time- split it for your blog and to find people, talk/communicate with them. More you engage more they will feel happy to read you often.
