Friendly reminder: I’m taking a break from writing and posting poems for the time being. For now, I’ll post blogging tips and other things. If you want to read poems, you can find them in my “poems” category. I’ll start posting poems by the end of this month or next month.

Hello everyone. Today, I’m doing something quite different from what I normally do; but to be honest, I always do different things on my blog; it makes it fun! Well, today, I’m sharing my secret on how you can improve your blog, get traffic and followers, and how you can become a better blogger. People ask me this question a lot; so I decided to share it with everyone instead. I wanted to wait for my two month bloggerversary; which is next week to share this but here it is. And yes; I’ve been blogging for almost two months now; not a year like someone thought😂. And I’ve learned quite a lot too.
The first thing you need to know about being a great blogger is that, in reality, there is no secret. But, these are some of the ways you can get more followers, increase your sites traffic, and improve your blog; because basically that’s what we all want. It works because that’s what I do; and I basically learned most of it on my own.😀

1. Be Friendly: Most of you might be asking questions like “how does it help?” Or “why?” Well, it works; a lot. It’s actually a handful but the results are amazing. It’s actually one of the main thing I do. It’s all about creating a healthy environment and a link between yourself and other bloggers through reading and liking their post; and leaving a comment if necessary. People like when others can relate to their story (post) or when someone compliments their work. They’ll want to know who it is; therefore, they’ll check your site and follow if they want. Through that simple thing, you get views and followers; although don’t over do it; it’ll just be weird. And sometimes I use emoji’s in my comments as well😊; it’s brightens the atmosphere.

2. Support Everyone: This also goes with number one. There are new bloggers who might be scared that people won’t read their post or like it; but when you support by hitting that like button and leaving a positive comment if necessary, they’ll appreciate it and check out your site. You might not like their topic; but you’ll always learn something from it. If you notice, I always say “leave a comment; if necessary” because you don’t have to comment if you don’t have anything nice to say; except you have a helpful suggestion. 
3. Participate In Daily Prompts: This is actually easy; because everyday, there’s a new theme; and all you have to do is write a response to the prompt, create a pingback, and your post will be added to the list. If you follow daily post, you’ll be aware of everything; their daily prompt, weekly challenge, and community pool. They are all useful means to get your blog out there. 

4. Love What You Write: This is important; as it goes alongside inspiration. It is your blog; so you are free to write whatever you like; as long as you have a passion for it. If you follow my blog, you’ll see that I barely focus on a single topic because 1) I like different things; and 2) people like different things as well; and with that, I can get different viewers from each topic people might be interested in. If you write poems, short stories, fashion styles, animals, babies, health; as long as you love what you write, people will like it. 

5. Reply To Every Comment: I’ve talked about checking your spam comments on a daily basis; click here to check it out. You always have to like and reply to a comment left by a fellow blogger and reader on your post. If they leave a compliment or suggest something, thank them. If they ask a question, answer it. If they talk about their experience in respect to your post, talk further and engage in a discussion if possible; and give advice if necessary. If they ask you to check out their blog, tell them you will and check it out. Always like and reply to every comment left on your post; it lets people know how friendly and attentive you are; and you guys might end up becoming friends. It happens a lot!

Those a few of my helpful tips which I use regularly. I also realise that it’s not just about getting followers; it’s about getting loyal followers and readers who’ll always contribute to your post and make your time worthwhile. But, you also have to be an active blogger. You can’t post once a week and not read people’s post then expect your blog to grow. When you work hard, you get positive results. If you don’t know what to post as time goes on, republish some of your old posts because while it might be old to you, it’ll be new to others. Don’t forget to tag your post as well. I hope these tip will help others just like it has helped, and is still helping me. If you have any question, feel free to ask. If you think others will benefit from this, reblog and share because just like I’m helping, you should help others. I really won’t tell you guys all my secrets though; that’s why it’s called a secret😂. I’ll tell you guys some other time; just enjoy and use this one for now.

Thanks for reading!😀

  1. So totally agree! There’s one specific reader (GrumpyOldNurse) that I’ve shared some pretty sweet interactions with despite the fact she wants to maintain her “grumpy” persona hahahah

  2. Nice one from you, it will help me a lot. But really that daily prompts really confuses me when it comes to the ping backs, can you help me out with the tips for that?

    1. Follow their site@ http://dailypost.wordpress.com they publish a post about a new theme everyday; if you use the WP app, view that post in the reader. You’ll see a place with “show instructions”; click it and copy the link there then paste it in the html section of your post before you publish. That’s it

      1. Thanks, am already following them and I actually did that today, but I don’t know whether it worked out because it happened as if I just published the post normally in my blog

        1. Yeah. That’s how it’ll be but your post will also appear on the daily prompt list or whatever they call it😅 and people can view it from there if they want to

          1. Alright, I copied the link to my html and then write the post following the link I copied before publishing it, that’s why I don’t know whether it’s the eight way to do it

          2. If you want to make sure, after publishing the post, view it and click the link. Your post will definitely appear there

          3. Alright Thanks for your help, pls check out my blog and give me some feedbacks on whether am on the right track or not and also the tips to grow my blog. Thanks once again.

    it really beneficial. I really hope to provide something back as well

    I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m really enjoy your
    blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to all of it.
    Have you got any tips and hints for newbie blog writers?
    I’d definitely value it.

    1. I like how you talk about different topics; especially the one on Shakespeare’s quote and your talk on motherhood. I couldn’t read all your posts; but I enjoyed the once I read😊

  9. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this site.

    by you in the future as well. In fact, your creative writing
    abilities has inspired me to get my own site now

  10. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much approximately
    this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I feel that you could do with some p.c. to force the message home a little bit,
    however instead of that, this is excellent blog.

    A great read. I will certainly be back.

  11. Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any ideas? Many thanks!

  12. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on blogs I stumbleupon every day. It’s always interesting to read through
    articles from other writers and use a little something
    from other sites.

  13. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and
    it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things
    or suggestions. Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read even more things about it!

  14. I do not think I’ve scanned anything like this before.
    So good to find someone with some unique thoughts on this topic.
    great one for starting this up. This website is something that is needed on the
    web, someone witha little creativity. Good job for bringing
    something new to the web!

  15. Wonderful work! That is the type of info that are supposed to be shared across
    the web. Disgrace on Google for now not positioning this put up upper!
    Come on over and visit my website . Thank you =)

  16. That is really interesting, You are an excessively professional blogger.
    I have joined your feed and look ahead to
    looking for more of your magnificent post. Also, I have shared your web
    site in my social networks

  17. I used to leave my link to my blog with all of my comments I posted on others people’s blog, but I kind of felt weird about doing it. Do you think leaving your link is a good idea or no?

    1. I did it at first 😅 but I realised that your link is attached to your name so when they click it, it takes them to your blog. So, it’s not necessary

    1. Thanks. I no longer participate in daily prompts but you can follow their blog. They post a prompt everyday. If you go through some comments, you’ll find your answer. If you don’t; I’ll be willing to help

  18. Awesome posts from you, fellow. I’ve figured out your point and you’re just extremely great.
    I enjoy what you have here, actually like what you’re stating as well as the way by
    which you say it. You make it entertaining. I cant wait to read a lot more from you.
    This is really a great website.

  19. I could use your help: Could you tell me how I can include a link in my writing and it appears as a Red link in your blog like you do? I can’t figure that one out. Thanks so much, now off to part 2. Bruce

      1. It appears as red to me. I am currently using my desktop and looking at it on the web but I do also use mobile at times. The only way that I found this post is I stumbled upon your 2nd post and it linked me to go to this post. LOL follow that

  20. I may not invest 10 hours a day on the site or have thousands of edits under
    my belt, yet this type of treatment just left me with a
    bbad preference in my mouth, and it sounds like thee creator iis justt
    about condoning it. http://Charlesfilterproj1.com/

    1. Sorry for the late reply. Daily post is a WP site where they post a prompt everyday and all you have to do is write a response and create a pingback to the prompt. They also do other things

  21. I am loving reading your tips! I agree commenting and being friendly is such a big thing. I don’t have much time but I’m trying to dedicate more time to commenting as I think it really makes people happy .. I know it works for me 🙂

  22. When I started blogging I really had no idea of the blog etiquette and you learn that the more you give the more you get back. Understanding this takes time and it’s amazing how some people ignore you or just can’t be bothered to look at anyone else. Hopefully people will read this and realise that they will become more successful just by being friendly and doing what they love. I’ve ‘met’ such kind, supportive and interesting bloggers and really look forward to their posts. We’ve just got to help each other haven’t we?
