A FEW MORE TIPS

Dont pretend to be someone youre not. Write in your own voice and be authentic. Theres only one YOU.

A FEW MORE TIPS

If you want to gain more readers, be consistent with your blogging efforts, even if that means you blog less frequently. Pick a frequency daily, weekly, monthly, etc. and stick with it.

A FEW MORE TIPS

Create visually appealing images with each blog post. Make them relevant and original (dont steal other peoples photos).

A FEW MORE TIPS

Building readership takes time. The adage if you build it, they will come doesnt work. Instead, think if you promote/market it, they will come.

REMEMBER

QUALITY has more impact than QUANTITY, so make it a priority to create great content FIRST.
