One important way to become a successful blogger is through connecting with your audience, bringing them into the conversation with questions and prompts relating to your blog entries and subjects that interest you. It’s important to mix up your writing style so readers stay intrigued and it’s important to keep them guessing so your writing doesn’t grow stale. Listen to your readers so you can continue to provide them with the content they’re interested in; this will make them want to join your email list to keep up with the unique content only you can provide.
- Create posts that inspire people to share, question, add, or disagree with what you’re saying. Encourage them to speak in the comments. Bring them into your circle, so they feel like good friends.
- Take risks to expand your reach. It will keep those who like you engaged and always guessing what you’re going to bring to the table.
- While your reader will appreciate fresh content, they will want it to be at least somewhat related to the purpose of your blog.
“When you talk AT your audience you risk becoming the same forgettable background noise that serves no purpose.”
