You can read about it in, “Blogging: THE BRAND NEW Challenge Part 1.” Today we’re talking about the way the current blog weather is forcing us to use new solutions to find readers for our blog. A couple of years ago finding readers for your site was as easy as offering a few subscribing options in your sidebar, following other blogs, and posting your posts on Twitter or Facebook.
Oh, how the times have transformed! Much like all good stuff, there may be an excessive amount of a good thing. The blogosphere became flooded with aspiring authors. Many of them saturated Twitter with promotional links. Although I love sharing other blogs, I stopped writing links on Twitter for several a few months completely.

I would select a blog from my Facebook feed Sometimes, but I relied on Google Audience mostly.
My blog reading transformed about nine a few months ago. I no longer went to Google Reader–seeing over 1000 unread posts every time I went intimidated me. Facebook, and, sometimes, Twitter. I also clicked through pictures on Pinterest that associated with an intriguing blog post. I can’t speak for other blog readers, but are reasons I read a blog here.

Pinterest, or it’s written by a friend. How come this given information useful? Many bloggers halted nourishing the link with their current blog post on Twitter and Facebook. But using this method, they’re losing me as a blog reader.
I read 3-4 weblogs every weekday, and I find most of them on cultural media sites. If your site post isn’t there, I’m improbable to learn it. I expected to once i began employing this service. I can see the title, the first few sentences, and the picture for the post. The articles are easy to navigate. Pinterest is another place to find readers. Edit a stockphoto or personal photo to include a “hook” to lead people back to your site (see the picture above). If someone “pins” the image, it’s automatically connected back again to the post.

This is one reason I would recommend typing your author name in to the “tag always,” “label,” or “keyword” section. Every post you write will be related to your writer name.
