If you truly love your blog, you will give it the type of attention that it deserves.
Because neglected blogs tend to suffer in the following ways:
- A severe drop in incoming views.
- People unsubscribing from them.
- A lack of new blog posts added to them by its owner or its team of authors.
- People forgetting about their existence on the world wide web.
- Abandonment by its owner.
Dear friend, it does not take a rocket scientist to let you know, that your blog must be given the attention that it deserves (Especially if you want it to be active in the blogosphere for a long time to come).
So, are you giving your blog the attention that it truly deserves?
Add New Content To Your Blog In A Consistent Manner
Search engines on the world wide web (as well as viewing audiences from around the globe), will pay your blog greater attention if you add new content to it consistently.
Where updating your blog with fresh content is concerned, it is up to you to figure out if you are going to publish new content on your blog:
- On a daily basis.
- A few days a week.
- Once a week.
- On a fortnightly basis.
- On a monthly basis.
Simply choose one of those blogging schedules that you know that you can easily maintain.
Those of you who have been following Renard’s World for quite some time would know that I chose to publish new content on my blog weekly.
Dear friend, publishing new content on your blog in a consistent manner is a wonderful way of giving that blog of yours the attention that it deserves.
Your Blog Will Need To Stand Out From The Crowd
Another great way for your blog to get the attention that it deserves is for it to stand out from the crowd; this can be accomplished by:
- Publishing high-quality content.
- Being different from other blogs.
- Having a deep understanding of your viewing audience.
- Connecting with your readers on an emotional level.
- Using a professional-looking theme (Preferably one that is easy to navigate and contains fonts that are easy to read).
Almost everyone knows that the blogosphere is heavily saturated with blogs.
Are you doing the types of things that will help your blog stand out from the crowd?
Be A Guest Blogger For A Reputable Blogger’s Blog (Optional)
You are probably wondering, “How does guest blogging for a reputable blogger help my blog to get the attention that it deserves?”
Well, just in case you did not know, being a guest blogger for a reputable blogger’s blog is a great way to promote your own blog because you will get a high-quality link to your blog’s URL; which in turn will send traffic back to you!
For the record, getting the opportunity to be a guest blogger on a reputable blogger’s blog is no easy task (Anyone who is serious about guest blogging would not allow this fact to scare them away from their dream).
Adam Connell’s, The No-Fail Guide to Guest Blogging Strategy, will provide you with the information that you need.
Ask Your Friends To Share The Links To Your Blog Posts Via Their Social Media Accounts
Asking your friends to share the links to your blog posts via their social media accounts is another great way for your blog to get the attention that it deserves (This can be achieved via a call to action; which can be situated at the end of your blog post).
Luckily for me, the links to my blog posts have been shared on:
Now, do not be like the novice user of the self-hosted version of WordPress who forgot to add share buttons to their blog (Yes, that actually happened to someone who was a member of a Facebook blogging group that I was once a part of).
Let That Personality Of Yours Shine
Letting that personality of yours shine via your blog posts is another wonderful method of giving your blog the attention that it deserves.
We are all blessed with a personality (And, one of the best things about that, is personalities differ from person to person).
Any blogger can let their personality shine by:
- Being authentic.
- Writing the way that they actually talk.
- Letting their viewers see how enthusiastic they really are about their chosen topic.
Dear friend, you are one of a kind; never be afraid to let your personality shine via your blog posts.
By Not Giving Up
Giving up is certainly out of the equation (You cannot give your blog the attention that it deserves by giving up).
It is an unfortunate fact, that some bloggers expect their blogs to gain a lot of attention from others overnight.
The truth is that it takes a lot of a person’s valuable time and effort in the area of content creation; this must be done consistently if they ever expect others to take notice of their blog posts.
Dear friend, if you do not give your blog the attention that it needs, others will refuse to pay it the attention that it truly deserves.
You are probably aware of the fact, that success varies from person to person; for example, it might take a blogger six months for others to take notice of their blog in the blogosphere, whereas it might take another blogger one year for their blog to get noticed by others.
Forget about instant success (That, my friend, is a pipe dream).
Create The Type Of Content That Other People Will Want To Link To
Oh, yes! Creating the type of content that other people will want to link to will help to give your blog the attention that it deserves.
Bloggers usually link to the following types of content:
- Blog posts that are informative.
- Blog posts that solve people’s problems.
- Blog posts that are evergreen.
- Blog posts that specialize in a niche.
It is a pity, that a lot of bloggers (both personal and professional) seldom think of creating the type of content that other people will want to link to.
In a nutshell, you can give your blog the attention that it deserves by:
- Adding new content to your blog consistently.
- Doing the things that will make your blog stand out from the crowd.
- Being a guest blogger on the blog of a reputable blogger.
- Asking your friends to share the links for your blog posts via their social media accounts.
- Letting that personality of yours shine.
- Not giving up on your blog.
- Creating the type of content that other people will want to link to.
