Want More Blog Traffic? Build A Community
December 10, 2018
Now that your blog is created, and you have blog posts published, the next step is getting people to read it. Building a blog following takes some time and you must put into the work - not just on your own blog, but in seeking out other bloggers.
Connect With Other Bloggers
Besides sharing your blog with people you already know, look for other bloggers who write about similar topics or topics that interest you. You can create a free account with a website like Bloglovin' to discover new blogs. We have more recommendations of places to join to connect with other bloggers here.
Build A Blogger Community
Once you start following blogs and leaving thoughtful comments regularly on their posts, the blogger will get to know you. If available, always include a link to your blog in your comment so other readers and the blog owner can check out your blog. Building an online community is so important for growing your blog. This includes following and connecting with other bloggers on Social Media. Responding to tweets or retweeting a blog update is a courtesy that will likely be reciprocated.
