It’s a common wish of many bloggers.
I know since I collect wishes in my Blogger Collaboration group.
Most bloggers wish to increase subscribers.
Clearly, there is interest in the topic. My posts about how to get and find 3,000 blog followers* are among my best performing posts.
If you want blog followers, why not learn from the best in the business?
The influencers in blogging have tens of thousands of followers. What criteria do they use to decide who to follow themselves?
I invited 15 of them here to explain what criteria they use to follow other blogs.
If they follow blogs with certain criteria, and you put those qualities into your posts, you will increase your following.
If the best in the business say these characteristics are good enough for them, then they should be strong enough characteristics for you to turn your visitors into permanent subscribers.
Peculiar, isn’t it?
There are over 152 million blogs on the Internet. Why is it that some blogs have hoards of followers while others struggle to find a readership?
The truth is, it’s not peculiar at all.
The blogs with many followers offer their readers something that other blogs don’t.
Tempting, isn’t it?
You research, write, and promote your post. You are done. The rest of your life awaits.
However, there’s a nagging ache gnawing at you saying have forgotten an important part of blogging, but what is it?
Then, it dawns on you. Your blogging time is not over. You have forgotten a pivotal part of blogging–networking.
Is it necessary? Is there really a right way to blog?
