Hi Simmone,

Great question. The best way to think about WordPress, or any other blogging page is to think about it as a community. The more you put in, the more you’ll get out of it. So the best advice I’d give is to explore the other blog posts, especially others that tag and categorize their posts the same way you do. Read, like, comment, reblog, and offer advice when and where possible. I’ll be honest, my blog only had about 500 readers before I started offering writing tips and advice.

Secondly, I’d network as much as you can. Got a Facebook page? No?? MAKE ONE. Got a twitter page? No??? MAKE ONE!!! Got a Pinterest account? NO??? Oh man! Make accounts on these pages and link them to your blog. You don’t even have to use most of them. WordPress will post all of this for you. This will gain you greater exposure.

Really though that’s all there is to it. If you build it and expose it, people will come to it. If they like what you have to say they will come and visit your blog. YOU need to give them a reason to.

Anyway, hope this helps. Readers, do you have any advice for Simmone? How do you get more readers?

  5. Great blog! I learned this concept the hard way. For my first few months of blogging, I was literally writing to the air. I thought I had a great post. I was consistent with the days I wrote, offered useful information, kept my work count between 300-400 words, added graphics to make it more pleasing to the eye and eventually started adding tags once I realized their importance. About 3 months ago I discovered the trick to growing your blog. You have to reach out and become a part of the community. You are spot on. I have added about 50 followers since I started allotting time during the week to reach out. I have not set up the face book page but that is on my list ๐Ÿ™‚
