Post Regular Content

The first thing that you are going to need to do is ensure that you are posting regular content. People are not going to have time for a blog that only posts sporadically, and doesn’t really have any kind of structure as to when they post. People like blogs that have a kind of routine when it comes to posting, as they know when they are going to expect new content, and they can come and check for it. This is better for them having to check every couple of hours to see if you have posted something new! People will give up doing this after a while, especially if you’re not posting anything.

As such, you should do your best to post regular content on some kind of schedule. For example, if you post every day at around the same time, or twice a day around the same time, people will know what they are looking for, and when. This way, they can take the time out from what they are doing to read what you have written if they are interested in it. If you want to know more about the importance of regular posting, look at a site like

Post What People Want To See

If you want to see success, you have got to post what people want to see. Of course, it’s your blog and you know what you want to write about, but if you want to see success then you need to care about what other people want as well. You will notice that certain posts have more engagement than others, with more people commenting, sharing and so on. These are the kinds of posts that people are the most interested in, and if you can, you should try to ensure that you post as many of these as possible.

Of course, if you have something different to say, that’s okay as well. You just need to be careful that you are not straying too far from what you generally talk about. Try to remember that a lot of people come and read your blog because it appeals to them, but if you go off topic too often, you may lose readers to this.

Gather A Loyal Following

The best thing that you can do for your blog is to gather a loyal following who will read your posts no matter what. One of the best groups of people to target here is your friends and family. They are going to be a good choice as they will support you no matter what, and you can use something like to get all the help you need managing your contacts to get the word out. The more people that you have following you, the more successful that your blog is going to be. That sounds really obvious, but some people don’t use their friends and family as readers, and it doesn’t make a lot of sense. 

It’s always nice when strangers are also interested in your blog though. It’s true to say that you don’t have enough friends and family to make yourself successful on its own, so you also need to do things that will attract the attention of others. Market your blog where you can, use tags to ensure that your content is seen and so on.

Make Sure The Design Isn’t Boring

You need to ensure that the design of your blog isn’t boring or complicated. If it is, people are going to click off and find something that isn't. For example, if they know that there is a blog post on your blog, they should be able to access it within three clicks or one simple search. If they can’t, then they won’t bother trying too hard to find it. When it comes to designing your blog, try to avoid all cookie cutter formats. We know it’s difficult as it’s a blog, but you ideally want to make it stand out. You can find out some more about how to do this on a site like

Use bright colors, use pictures and videos without disrupting the load time, and do whatever you can to attract attention. It’s going to be helpful to have a theme of some kind, so that you don’t have oranges and greens clashing together on the page, creating an awful eye sore.

Share On Social Media

The final thing that we are going to say is that you should share your blog link on social media to get as much attention as possible. Other people can share, and then their friends can share and so on. It’s going to be helpful to getting more readers. You can even set up a social media page that is dedicated to your blog if you want to go that extra mile.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you can do if you are starting a blog and you want it to be successful. It’s important that you take the time to build your blog as you are starting from scratch, and realize that it’s not just going to be handed to you.
