Good tips for bloggers

Jeremy from “Till He Comes” has written a guest post for ProBlogger called “Want More Readers? Read More Blogs.”

I thought I would share some of Jeremy’s suggestions with you, since most of my readers also publish their own blogs.

In reality, most of these points can be boiled down to this: care about people and listen to what they say.

Here are Jeremy’s tips:

  1. Read your own blog
  2. Read your readers’ blogs
  3. Comment on other people’s blogs
  4. Repost excerpts from the blogs of others
  5. Repost the comments of others

Of course, I think all this (i.e., building an interactive blogging community) depends first on writing good and new content.

Plus, I think Jeremy has illustrated another tip: You can get people to check out your blog by writing guest posts for another site.

Jump over to Jeremy’s article and read this very good post!

    When I wrote this guest post, you were one of the people I had in mind. I think you do these things better than any blogger I know.

    And yes, Guest Posting is great. I have found a few places that actively seek Guest posting…ProBlogger.net and TheOoze.com are two. Do you know of others?

    More readers is one objective of a blog. There are others. So my tip is to understand your purpose.

    Jeremy,

    I saw that on your blog. Thank you very much for the kind words. Have you tried the New Wave ezine? There may be other ezines as well.

    Pondero,

    I agree completely. Attracting more readers is way down on my list of priorities. But, it is good to keep in mind.
