5 ways to grow your blog

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today’s post is going to be all about growing your blog, but before we get started I want to share something cool with you all.

I have recently started a fiverr! Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services. I have posted some blog design and book cover design gigs that I would love for you to purchase. And for a limited time, anyone who signs up to buy on Fiverr, clicking this affiliate link will get 20% off their first purchase! (this will give a small commission to me which I would really appreciate!) I would also love if you buy one of my gigs!

But enough of that for now!

lets get started

Tip Number 1: Communicate

Communication is the ultimate key to growing your blog audience. Following bloggers, leaving comments and liking posts allows others to actually notice your blog. Don’t know what to comment? Here are some conversation starters that I recommend using.

Great Post! I love [whatever the post was about (only say this if you truly like what the blogger was talking about)] too! I am a [(new) (fellow [niche])] blogger and I would love if you could check out my blog!

Hi I liked your post! Your blog is really [positive compliment] I was wondering if you could check out my website

Loved your post! I also am a [book blogger or whatever niche you are] I was wondering if you could check out my blog!

Sometimes you don’t even have to ask them to check out your blog! Whenever a nice blogger I haven’t seen before comments on my posts, I like to visit their blogs.

Also, make sure you frequently communicate with the followers you already have!

2: Collaborate

The cool thing about collaborating with other bloggers is that you get a chance to reach more people by being linked to their website. Their followers can check out your blog, meaning that you may have a chance of getting more followers. Especially if you collaborate with a bigger blog.

3: Use Social Media

If you are allowed to use social media, it can be a great way to expand your blog. Right now I use Instagram and post book photos and blog spoilers on there. It can be effective if you keep focus, but you can get easily distracted.

4: Giveaways

I have never tried this, but I know many people who have gotten a bigger audience by doing giveaways. Everyone loves freebies! and no one minds reposting and telling their followers to join the giveaway Which leads to more followers!

5: Do you!

Be yourself and make your blog true to you!

I hope this post helped you! What’s your favorite way to grow your blog audience?

Wondering how to make your blog/site famous?

Wanna be popular? Then this guide is for you!

Step One:   Create a Cool Name

Creative, Cool and spunky names attract others to your site. For example; Suppose you have a blog about dogs, Instead of naming it Dogs or All about dogs. Name it: The Puppy Dog Blog, Doggy Blog, Doggy Club, Dog-Ventures or Bonjour petite Chein.  Those names sound cute and different. Users like using new things instead of finding the same sites over and over again, your name is one of the mains points of getting visitors.

Step Two: Make your theme useable

You Theme should be simple and easy to use. Keep your blog simple so it easier for users to use it. Users like simple things that are easy to learn and adapt to. KISS; Keep It Simple Silly! Also, make sure to add flair to your website. Don’t make it a copycat blog.

Step three: Comment on other peoples posts’ 

More people find out about my blog when I comment on there’s. Make sure your comments are engaging and line up with the post don’t say things like; “Great post” or, “Cool!” Say things that show that you really like their blog, such as ” I love how your website focuses on stuffed toys!” or,” You are such a great artist!”  When you use real comments it makes others think your blog is really worth it.

Step Three: Use tags

Tags are the simplest and easiest way to make your posts’ more noticeable. When I first created Elysian Artiste I use some tags on my posts. So when people put in the tag Musings or Poetry, they would see my post. The more tags you use, the more views and potential likes. It’s super easy and simple to do this. And random people will find the post just by typing or clicking different tags. If you use enough tags on your posts’ you might get to the top of the search engine!

Step four: Make your posts different

When writing posts don’t ramble or rant (which I usually do) unless you make your rants and ramblings special, such as you add a twist of humor or you are a huge weirdo (like me) If your rants have something different about them people will like your posts and eventually follow you. If you make a post make it different than others. It is okay to take inspiration from another blog, but it is bad to copy everything!

Step Five: Post frequently 

When you post frequently it makes your followers feel as if it was worth following you, if you don’t want to post every day, post every other day or post 3 posts every 2 days of a week. I usually post a lot each day. My followers look forward to my posts’ and know they don’t have to wait forever.

Step Six: Communicate with your visitors

When someone likes one of your posts’, like one of theirs and even comment. That will show that you’re a nice person. If they comment on your blog, comment back, start a conversation. Just be friendly and welcome them. Once they see how friendly and kind to them they may follow you.

Step Seven: Promote your blog

Share with your friends. Use apps like Instagram to promote your blog. Make little cards with your blog URL to give out to people. Wear T-shirts with your blog URL on it. Use Websites like blog lovin’, and swap buttons with other bloggers.

Step Eight; Express yourself

Share things that you like with the world, act like yourself. Don’t hide who you truly are. Use a cool header. Create a cool tagline. If you are funny let, your posts share your humor. Be Yourself!
