Well, it’s 2015! You created your own blog. Now, you want others to read it. How should you promote your site?
1. Use social media. If you’re using a site like WordPress, each time that you publish a blog post on your web page, it can also post on social media. If you have a Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or other social media account, this would be a great way to start promoting your blog. Ask your friends, family, and associates to promote it as well.
3. SEO. Search engine optimization allows you to use tags or keywords to make your website or web page more visible. It’s a great tool to bring traffic to your web page.
4. Guest blogging. This is a wonderful way to build relationships with other bloggers as well as promote your content.
5. More posts means more views. You must update your blog often so that readers will not lose interest. It doesn’t have to be everyday, but it should be more than a few times per month.
This should help get you started on your exciting journey of blogging. You should see results within a short period of time.
Have Faith and Live Well! I am currently a stay-at-home mom and aspiring writer from Silver Spring, MD. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and a Master of Science degree in Analytical Chemistry. I am married with a 4-year old son, RJ. I was inspired to start my blog last year when my son was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. My goal is to inform and tell personal stories that may inspire you. Besides writing, I enjoy racquetball, horseback riding, traveling, movies, and reading.
