With the millions of blogs taking up space in that endless sphere we call the web posting on every topic from A ~ Z you are probably wondering how you can make your blog shine the brightest, while receiving  the highest traffic ever.  We all want to develop loyal followers and a humongous readership.  The key isn’t just attracting them in the first place, but creating an excitement and interest that will make them want to come back for more.


Your Voice Matters

Be expressive.  It’s not necessarily what you say, but how you say it that will strike a chord in your readers’ heart, mind or soul.  When visitors read an online article or land on your site, they are looking for an experience.  Giving them more than what they expected will make them come back wanting more.  We all know people can be reactionary at times in their way of thinking.  Providing content that is entertaining, informational, clear and insightful will do wonders for your bottom line.  A Hallmark card prompts an immediate sale and for the recipient, an emotional experience.  When you invoke human emotion in one form or another into your content, the public responds.

Promotion Is Key

Any one can choose an awesome blog design and post great material.  If no one reads it, it’s kind of pointless to waste the time and effort.  Feed your posts to your Facebook, Twitter, Myspace profiles and also your hotmail, aol and yahoo email accounts.  Register your blog on search engines like Technorati, BlogCatalog, Alltop,  Klout , StumbleUpon and Ice Rocket.   Submit your articles to online magazines and ezines that allow you to reference your blog.  A little effort in self-promotion will go a long way.

Write What You Know

We all have a passion about something.  Begin with what you know whether it’s cooking, hiking, crafts, sports, biking, a hobby, following celebrities, fashion … the options are endless.  Once you create an entertaining and knowledgeable voice, they will follow.

Pictures Are A Must

Yes a picture does say a thousand words.  And, nothing is more mundane than an article/post that is filled with words.  Appeal is important.  Make sure you don’t use copyrighted images.  There are free photo sites available like Stock.xchng  and Jupiter Images that offer royalty-free stock photos.

Widgets

They’re cool … plain and simple and can add interesting interaction to your website or blog by providing content that complements the material you've created.   For example if you write about politics, you can add a widget that follows the political arena.  We’re all familiar with the popular ones that hook us up to Facebook, Twitter and You Tube.   There are multiple sites that offer  free apps like Widgets For Free

Great article!  I am just starting my blog and am getting overwhelmed!  my blog is www.mommyjudge.com  It's hosted with Hostgator.  Do you know anything about them?  Is using Google's G+  just as good for a webpage?  I don't know how to make changes on my site to make it more interesting. Who hosts your site and how did you choose/make your theme? 

Sorry for all of the questions! :-)  If anyone has any answers or advice I would really appreciate it!!

Thanks,

Elle
