Another way to get readers is to become an authority on the subject and possibilbly offer some "how-to" articles as well.
Things that the big bloggers do and, things you need to do to be read.
Conflict: You create a conflict you get comments and readers.
Controversy: You get comments and readers.
Relevance: This is only your point of view. State it, call a spade a spade, you get comments and readers.
Timing: Blog on current topics. People hunt for what is in the news today give your thoughts.
Please add your ideas that work
High quality how to's offering original advice and content are a fantastic way to boost traffic
You are right. I was not thinking about that type a blog when I made the post.
"How to" and "information" are great for blogs.
I was thinking on the lines of people with personal blogs. Things that would help them get read.
I went to the market today. We had fish for dinner. Tommy is home with the flu. I saw the movie avatar it was wonderful. bla bla bla.
Today I was at the big box store. Just look at what I saw. I would not be caught dead in an outfit like this? People Please!!!! Where the right article of clothing for your size it is just common sense. If you think this is sexy it is not. All this is showing is your bad taste. But then again there are some people who are proud of the fact that they are trailer trash.
I wonder what article will get the most comments?
Hey thats my wife!!
LOL Just kidding, but you are right "I had to comment"
All of the fore-mentioned ideas are great ways to get people thinking and writing.
