This is the most important step you will ever face. You must find your niche! Without a niche, you are virtually lost. You must gain expertise in the market you want to provide information in. You MUST know what you are talking about, and always be truthful. Go out there and find your niche!
Not only will the blog writer notice you in their comments section, but other readers who agree with your comment may want to click on over to your site because of it. The blogging community is a strong one, so finding other people through comments is a really genuine way to make some internet friendships and bring your blog and someone else’s some love.
The web has changed a lot. Blog are all over the place. Some are good looking, others are bad looking. One thing that stays evident is the fact that the cooler a blog looks, the more it is read. People like attractive havens. If they like the content on a blog, they will come back to the blog ever so often, but having a nice design will surely help you retain more readers.
I don’t remember where I first heard this tip, but many have shared it before me, and it’s a tenant I have aimed to follow from the beginning. My personal goal is to post 3 times a week. Not only is this good for me because it keeps me disciplined (which I am not naturally), but it’s good for my readers. They know what to expect from me.

When I started mine I didn’t think I would even consider it more than a hobby and it became something more. And by the time I transferred to self hosting I had decided to change the name of my blog b/c it didn’t fit my situation anymore and most of the good domains were taken with the original name. So now I have the fun task of literally re-doing photos in over 100 posts that are watermarked with my old name. Let alone write new ones. Needless to say I am really behind.
