We’ve had some readers express interest in learning about blogging so we’ve decided to make it a weekly series on Mommies with Cents! If you are interested in learning how to start your own blog or to cultivate and grow the one you have, we welcome you to join us!
Today’s question is: How do you gain readers?
The good news is there are lots of ways to gain readers. That bad news? They all take a time commitment and effort. We’ll take a couple of weeks to cover different ways to help you gain readers.
A great way to gain readers is by being involved in online communities and being social. Engage with readers and other bloggers on Twitter and Facebook. Start a dialog or interact with them. Follow or fan people that interest you- they are likely to follow or fan you back. Visit other blogs and leave comments. Building relationships will establish a solid readership of people who will visit your blog again and again.
Admittedly, this isn’t one of our strong suits. Mindy and I have three small children each making time something we severely lack. We tend to do these things in bursts when we have time. Unfortunately, that isn’t often. It’s fun to be social though and an easy way to gain and keep readers.
Do you have any tips on how to gain readers? we are always learning and would love to hear your suggestions! Next week we’ll go over another method for gaining readers so check back! For more tips, see all of our posts in our Blogging 101 Series.
When Mindy and I started out we had no idea what we were doing. We learned as we went and even though it’s been a few years, there is still so much to learn! We are learning new things all of the time and it’s so much fun! We’ve had help along the way and we want to pay it forward.
