Blog promotion

This week Dr Tanya asks our opinion about this quote;

TODAY’S QUOTE:

Gary Vaynerchuk

What you do after you create your content is what truly counts.

➰➰➰

This is something that I have experienced firsthand. Wonderful content on a blog which has no public engagement will not be read by many.

There are over 600 million blogs in the world today, this number has grown over the last 2 years, exponentially.

So how to decide which blog post to read and whom to follow on the blogosphere? The answer lies in engagement by the writer with other bloggers.

Unless you’re a celebrity or selling something that everyone wants or needs, no one will know you when you start your blog. You will have to build up your readership by interacting with other bloggers and by reading their posts. Leaving thoughtful comments on posts by others, often encourages them to visit your blog. Here the quality of your writing or the uniqueness of your ideas will make them a frequent visitor to your blog.

If you aim to attract a large following to your blog, then you will have to work not only on your writing, which should be of good quality but also on interacting with your fellow bloggers to build your community.

On the other hand, if you’re here just for the sake of expressing yourself and putting your thoughts out in the world, carry on as you feel comfortable because, at the end of the day, it’s always your choice.

  1. Very true, but I think the quote could also be applied to editing–that vital part that comes after the writing. The trimming away of the irrelevant, the needless repetition and the padding.

  3. Better one chills whether one’s post gets likes/comments/followers or nothing at all!
    Just continue posting.
    The blogosphere is more than an ocean.
    Somewhere on some day at a particular time some one may resonate with you.
    So relax and enjoy writing and continue to post.
    This is my personal opinion.

  4. My blogging journey has been a wandering one. Sometimes the path is straight, but more often zig-zagging, here and there. Sorta like my life in general. Just taking it one day at a time.

  5. That is good advice, especially for brand new bloggers if they want their content to be read. They have to give a little by visiting other blogs and leaving a comment when they can, in order to have someone visit their blog. 🙂
