The number one way to grow a blog is a tall order. I’ll bet you were wondering how I would narrow it down to just one thing!
I am pretty sure, for me, that it is READING. It is very overarching, but reading is the #1 thing that motivates me to make my blog better. I am always reading “about Blogging”.
I like to find a few key bloggers to follow who blog on blogging or social media. The obvious way to keep up with them is to subscribe to their email newsletters. I like to keep up with them in social media, but I don’t like them to get mixed in with all my casual newsfeed stuff, so I choose one social media account to keep up with them. It is easiest on G+. I like to make a Circle just for those people, and I go check that Circle Feed each day to keep up. Which reminds me…go follow me on G+!
I know, for some of you, you will feel like my answer of “READING” is time consuming and unproductive. But there is no substitute, in business, for keeping your ear to the ground…keeping up with what is new and what other people are doing.
Learn from others!
