How to get Me to Read Your Blog

Filed as Features, Guides on November 1, 2007 7:54 am

Chances are I’m not reading your blog. That’s not because I don’t like you, most likely I don’t even know you exist, and that’s your fault.

Yes, you heard me. Your fault. It’s something you can remedy though.

There are a gazillion blogs out there, and most of them suck, to be honest. Yours might not, though, so I’m willing to have a look. But how am I to find it? And why should I stay along at all?

Are you commenting on my posts? That works, you know, don’t be shy – tooting your horn is something you need to learn. Sometimes reading other people’s blog is the best way to get lots of traffic in the long run, since it can award itself with links, trackbacks and the like.

Do you submit your posts to social tools, like StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, and Splashpress’ own Blogosphere News? That’s a very natural way to reach your niche, and if I’m interested in it I might end up reading something on your blog.

Do you write great headlines? If I see a link with a true eye-catcher I’m more likely to click it, than something boring like “New plugin out now” – now what’s up with that? Writing snappy headlines is an art by itself. I admire people who can do that.

Does your blog look like shit? And have I seen it a thousand times before? I’m really sorry, content may be King and all that (something I agree upon, by the way), but if you present it in a bad way I just won’t read it. Small fonts, lousy contrast, crappy design – they’re all turnoffs and they won’t make me subscribe to your RSS feed, read your posts, or get active in your comments. Looks is important, because first impressions last.

Actually, does your blog even function like it should? There are too many blogs with dead links, plugins that bugs out, and other problems. It doesn’t even have to be a bug in the code, it could be your lousy implantation of functionality I don’t want or need. Don’t clutter it with widgets and thousands of “cool things”, or I’m gone.

Don’t clutter it at all! Seriously. Less is actually more.

Do I get your blog? If I don’t it might be my fault, but if you don’t do what you can to make me understand what your blog is all about, why you’re blogging, and what I can expect from it, then I’ll be bored and leave. I’m not saying you shouldn’t surprise your readers, but if the turns are too sharp you’re sure to lose a bunch in the process.

Are you being consistent with your updates? You know, you should post more or less the same amount of content all the time. If not, I might wonder where you are (if I’m an avid reader), or forget about you (if you haven’t impressed me yet).

Are you getting these things right? Then you’re bound for blogging glory!

At least if you’re a good writer. You know, content is still King, after all…

    Can’t help but think of that 80s song- “Don’t mess with my toot toot”- who the hell was that by, anyway? (some big Mama). Got to no.1 in UK. Always makes me laugh when I remember it!

    Seriously, thanks for an excellent post, Thord. Great to have you back at BH.

    Strangely, a lot of top websites have a great deal of “clutter” and seem to do well with it. After all, once you’ve read whatever you’ve come to the site to read, why not look around and see what else is there? People like garage sales, thrift stores and other clutter-prone places – especially people who aren’t as technologically adept and are more likely to click on your ads or not already be an affiliate of a product you’re promoting.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys!

    Mark, I remember that song. Not fondly, but I do remember it! ;)

    J.D., I hear what you’re saying, and of course you can be reading a cluttered website, especially since so many sites out there are covered with clutter. Still, it’ll be a lot harder to keep a first-time visitor on your site if you overwhelm him/her with widgets, links, nifty badges, and all that other crap that people put up on their blog. But yeah, depending on your niche and target audience, that might be more or less important. Still, if there’s too much clutter that means that a) the blog owner wants too much at once, and/or b) the blog owner should have a design fitting for all these things. Sometimes b is the solution, but or could be, but more often a is the case, if you ask me. Which you did. :)

    Hi Thord,

    Thanks for the write-up, which makes a lot of sense. One thing I’m not so sure about, however, is submitting your own posts to social networking sites.

    Wouldn’t it be better to submit other people’s blog posts? That way, those other people come to your blog, and you build a reputation for showcasing good content, without people thinking you’re only out for yourself.

    A friend of mine reckons that it doesn’t count if you submit your own pages to StumbleUpon, and that they’ve disallowed votes on your own website pages, but I’m not sure about that.

    Anyway, nice post again.

    David, sure. You can absolutely build a social reputation by submitting other people’s posts to various social networking sites. And yes, it’s probably better if you have a friend submit your post, but honestly, I’ve yet to see a real different myself. Having friends vote for your post seems a lot more important than having the actually submit it to me. And thanks for the kind words.

    Chip, thanks, and I’m glad to have you as a subscriber over at rethord.com as well!

    Probably one of the biggest challenges for me out of this list is the frequency with which I post. Since blogging is purely a not-for-profit hobby, the amount of time & energy I can devote fluctuates. Some weeks I’m lucky to publish one or two new articles but at other times, I’m adding new content quite often.

    Dunno how much it’s noticed, but I do try very hard not to be an echo chamber. I avoid posting for the sake of simply adding content. And I generally avoid most of the fluff content like memes and “me too” metablogging chatter. I try to be mindful of the question, “Would I read a blog like this?” when writing my blog posts.

    I’m a programmer, but i’ve never done anything with HTML, flash, or any of that stuff (i’m a real developer :)

    I recently started a blog, http://www.fatassmarathon.blogspot.com, after encouragement from friends that were reading my notes about my struggles with weight and coming to terms with my body, my self esteem and fitness. My blog is really geared towards women in many ways, but I think some of the issues I have faced as an overweight adult anyone can relate to. Check it out and let me know what you think. I would really like to develop a readership.

    Thanks for the advice! I’ve discovered it takes time and patience to build a readership, even using the social network tools. But I’m starting to get referrals from them as well as the search engines, so it’s paying off over time. It’s always a delight to see someone new but even better to see them become a return reader. I don’t monetize — I realize some see this as a means to getting traffic — but I don’t like the idea of ads cluttering my page and distracting from content. Anyhow, thanks for the pointers, I appreciate them!

    I created this blog…kind of a unicorn advocacy page, because I was bored (I live in the woods with squirrels and ducks.) Then….after a few days later…I just realized I was typing in a gigantic vacuum. Which is fine if you are just totally cool with going on an isolated schizophrenic rampage….not unlike the way homeless people talk to walls. Then to my horror I relaized I would have to put more effort into this wasting my time, or the whole thing would be a waste of my time.

    But have always thought blogs were a bit odd because they are mostly just about peoples lives…which isn’t that sort of narcissistic?

    Hi Thord

    I know Im soo late with this post, but great article, in fact I just finished reading your tips on the use of anchor text, which makes a good deal of SEO sense.

    I personally have tried using a ‘keyword’ and text like ‘click here’ although I really have no idea how Google scores this usage..

    Thanks

    I’ve referred back to this page a few times and the one piece which I always find daunting is “Do I get your blog?”

    I write lots of little essays and observations about the world around me, from what it’s like to be a man and try not to ogle breasts to responses to the State of the Union.

    I’ve rewritten my “About” section at least six times.

    Essentially, my blog is about my writing style and my perspective. I think it’s interesting enough to warrant a blog, but it’s difficult to get people to know what to expect, especially considering I don’t always know myself.

    Anyways, thank’s for the clear advice.

    At last – helpful tips !!

    My blog is brand new, not even a week old, so I haven’t had the time to develop any bad habits (a bit like the first week learning to drive on your own property). My content is niche enough to have a target audience but I also plan to throw in a few off topic true stories just to keep things interesting. The two issues I have are getting people to read it and removing stuff I don’t want to appear on the front page (as stated in your post, less is more).

    Thanks for an informative post – I’m off to find out what StumbleUpon and Digg can do for me.

    Hey.
    I really enjoyed the article. Some of the pointers that you listed were things I had not even thought of. However, I’m still finding it difficult to promote my blog. Do you suggest getting rid of the .blogspot. from my URL? Are there other, better, blogging platforms than blogger with the same ease of use?

    I am hoping to find a small reader base and I hope that I can get there at some point. Personally I think that I have a decent writing style and I enjoy coming up with ideas to share with people. If you could spare the time to take a look at my blog and let me know your thoughts on how to improve it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Im only 17 years old, graduated from high school in 3 years instead of 4 and now Im having a hard time getting a job and making it the 3,121 miles across the U.S. to where I’ve been accepted to college! I will work, write, dance, anything for a buck!
    I need to earn money to move from Tampa to Seattle! Yes! I know! But that’s it! I just have to “get it done!”
    No one in Tampa will hire me! Ive applied to over 40+ places before summer starting and up until today. Time is running out! Ive gotten a couple odd jobs, paid for food, thats it! Anybody have a job in Tampa for me? Give donations to my site? Anything! Please! Help a girl out!

    hi Thord,

    That’s a good list of things to ensure appropriate traffic to blogs.
    more often , I tend to know all but forget / miss to implement it…
    i really liked the tips because all of them make absolute sense.
    my blog is http://www.afallenhero.blogspot.com
    When you get some time, if you can kindly visit the blog and let me know if its allright i would be very grateful to you.
    Awaiting in anticipation…

    Warm Regards,
    The fallen hero

    Great tips! I couldn’t agree more. I’m going to look over my blog now and see if I’ve broken any of those rules …

    I have to say this is perhaps the best “how to get people to read your blog” posts I’ve seen yet! Simple, honest, to the point. In return, here I am tooting my own horn (hey, I don’t have to be asked twice!)

    I’m a newbie with a dozen loyal readers, looking forward to all the possibilities out there!

    One way to get noticed is to to be all over the net, specially social part of net. Great content and a little provocative headlines and you are set to go.

    Thanks for the great tips Thord! I am still new to a lot of the optimizations that can be done to increase traffic and a reader base, so it is genuine straightforward posts like this that make the adventure much easier. I feel I have a long way to go with mine, so I’ll be back here for ideas quite a bit!

    Great ideas on how to grow a following. It made me really think about what I use for my headliners. I haven’t been putting much effort into it, but will from now on. Thanks!

    Sounds pretty good. Marketing is huge. One question, if you feel you are doing a fair amount of marketing, how do you really see the roi? Do you hound people, or follow up? I use social networking sites and haven’t seen much activity on my daily active blog. Granted it is only a few weeks old I do post updates with links on these sites for easy navigation to the newest post. I write fantasy and I’m using my blog for getting my name out, free write disciplines, and furthering my thoughts into plot and action. Let me know if you have any pointers on good blog sites to become active in for my niche.

    Those tips are really helpful, thank you. Could anyone tell me if my blog is any good, though? I’ve activated the adwords thing, and intend to do the above, but what do you think? http://anonisquidge.blogspot.com – should I carry on with it? Think a bit like Bridget Jones, but in the real world!!!

    I have a WordPress.com blog so I can’t add any plugins. How can you submit your posts to sites like StumbleUpon and Digg without those plugins?

    Please check out my blog. I work really hard on it, and I’d love for you to read it!
