1. Reply to comments the right way
Reply to your comments through the e-mails you get with their comment not on your blog. I though I had to reply to my followers on my blog and later found out I was ignoring my followers comments by replying in the wrong way.
2. Don't be a no-reply blogger
Make sure your not a no-reply blogger. For the longest time I though bloggers were ignoring my comments until I found out I was a no-reply blogger.
3. Turn off word verification
Go to setting-posts and comments-and click no on show word verification. This helps readers not want to comment and increases your comments.
4. Have social media
I put this off for the longest time and just a couple weeks ago created a Facebook Page for my blog. I have a pinterest, instagram, twitter, bloglovin, and facebook page now to share my blog with others and increase my readers.
5. Meaningful posts
I never really struggled with this too much, but make sure the post is relevant to your readers so they will want to come back to your blog.
6. Have an About you page
Make sure to have an about page so readers can learn about you and really feel connected to you. I've gone to many blogs and have not been able to find an about page or have found a page that didn't really say much, so make sure to have a clear about you page.
7. Contact page
Second to having a clear about you page is having a contact page. It's really hard for a follower to contact you if you don't have your e-mail on your about you page or better yet a contact page.
8. Label your posts
Have a labels (tag) section on your blog so your followers can pick a topic to look at. i.e. have a tag labeled recipes for your readers to be able to find other recipes that you have made and shared on your blog.
9.Similar posts link
Have a link with popular or similar posts so your readers can look at other posts that a majority of your readers enjoyed. I got link-within for my blog to show similar posts to my readers.
10. Button Swap
To share your blog with others, make your to swap your blog button with other bloggers. It's easy, free and helps you make new bloggers friends.
