I have always enjoyed reading blogs because you can learn other peoples honest opinions and I love how friendly the communty is. I am still pretty new to blogging but I have a few tips for you, if you have recently started a new blog.
As I've experienced, when you are starting out the main question you ask is 'how can I build up my blog?' I quickly learnt that this doesn't happen overnight, but there are many things that you can do to interest people in your posts.
Firstly, your content. This is the most important thing to work on because if people don't enjoy your conent, chances are they won't come back. It is also important to make sure that you check over your posts for mistakes before you publish them because this will put readers off.
Another thing that helps is making sure that your blog is easy to navigate around. If it runs smoothly, people are much more likely to read what you have to say. If it jumps around or is confusing to use, readers will most likely give up.
By commenting on other people's blogs, you will also help to get people to notice your blog. However, when commenting DO NOT just promote yourself and say things like 'follow for follow'. People will not appreciate this! I sometimes leave my blog's html link at the bottom of my comment, but only incase someone would like to know where they can find me and I only ever comment on posts that I am genuinely interested in.
Make sure you are writing about what you want to and not what you think other people want to see. If you are really interested in something and you write about it, people will realise that.
Finally, have patience. Your blog is not likely to gain thousands of followers overnight. You just have to stay commited and not give up!
If you have any other tips, please leave comments because I would love to read them.
