Week 1: How to make your Blog Unique

I won Dominique's blog giveaway a while ago and part of the prize package was 5 guest post articles. I thought a topic that would benefit all of us would be how to build a blog that appeals to more visitors. Dominique jumped on it and has beautifully titled the series- 'Energize Your Blog' .

Feel free to leave any comments, questions, suggestions below each post.

Week 2- Boosting Your Readership

I'm sure as a blogger your wish would be to have a growing and responsive readership. There are a few ways by which you can grow your readership.

First of all before you start there are two questions you need to ask yourself:

1. How much time can you spend online?

It is important to note the amount of time that you have each day (or week) to spend on building up your blog profile and adding content to it.

It is essential to have a blogging calendar set up so that you can systematically and efficiently work on adding relevant posts and schedule out what is needed to market and run your blog.

2. Who are your targeted readers and where can they be found?

You need to spend time analyzing the demographic details of your readers and what they are sourcing for within your blog. If your aim is to build up your blog you need to know how and where to find the right audience.

Forums and related blogs are some places you can venture to search for your potential readers.

Now that you have answered these two important question it is time for you to take some action.

Here is a 5 step plan which you can implement to boost your readership:

Step 1- Create descriptive and interesting post titles for your posts.

Step 2- Post regularly.

Step 3- Respond to comments on your post.

Step 4- Engage your readers with questions, contests and assignments

Step 5- Add social bookmarking widgets on your blog
