I have wonderful readers, is it so bad to just want a few more?

standard December 17, 2008 14 responses

I don’t usually make big New Year’s resolutions. OK. Fine that’s not true. I don’t usually keep New Year’s resolutions. Diet, exercise, decluttering, early bed time, increased home cooking… I’ve made and broken them all, again, and again, and again. By February I’ve usually embraced the previous year’s shortcomings and come to grips with the fact that things are unlikely to change in the near future.

But this year? This year is going to be different. Yes, it so is.

This year my only goal is to stop being the best kept secret of the blogosphere. I would be thrilled if I could reach more people with my words. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not on some crazy traffic hunting scheme. I don’t want to lure a bajillion readers here with empty keyword promises. I would just like to grow the quality community we already have brewing over here.

Now, I realize that it’s not quite January yet, but I’m still going to pick your brains now. I have a couple ideas that might help us grow, but I’d love to know your thoughts. Who knows, we might hit on a way to help us all gain some awesome readers!

Here goes nothing:

1) I was thinking of doing some new blog exchange posts. Even though The Blog Exchange has gone away, (hopefully just for a long hiatus) I miss hanging out on other blogs and I now know quite a few bloggers I would love to share with you.

2) I’ve enjoyed guest blogging here and there, and I’m thinking of doing more. Are there any sites you would like to see me stop by? Are there any guest bloggers you would like to see around here?

3) I had a blast doing the AddsYou interview and I have two more up my sleeve. If you know any other cool entrepreneurs I can interview I’d love to know about them! I get a kick out of sharing great sites and great people with you.

4) I want to come see you. No, really. From now on you have my promise: if you leave a comment I’m going to stop by your blog. I can’t wait to get to know all of you better.

5) Comment Luv. I tried once unsuccessfully to install comment luv, the handy application that inserts your last blog post into each comment. I’m going to try again. If you’re taking time to leave me a hello the least I can do is help you promote yourself!

So tell me, what else do you think might help?

  • If you want to interview dynamic bloggers and entrepreneurs, interview http://twitter.com/foxvox and http://twitter.com/lekker. Both of them are soooo savvy on cafepress and I learned a lot from them. Also, you can guest post on my blog, http://acommonstreetpeddler.blogspot.com anytime. You do not have to talk about food, just whatever topic fits my eveyday events part. How do we set that up?

  • For the first several months of this year, I responded to EVERY comment on my blog and visited each person’s blog… I ended up with more than twice the number of visitors than I have now (60 versus the 20-25 I have now). But I was spending ALL my time in the evenings doing bloggy stuff.

    I still spend WAY too much time doing bloggy stuff, but at least it’s bloggy stuff I WANT to do (most days) rather than feeling obligated. (Let’s not talk about my post last night, which was JUST. DREADFUL and written out of Blog 365 obligation.)

    Anyway, I would LOVE to be a bit more well-read. But I decided it wasn’t worth the constant care and feeding.

    I wonder if I might see a little MORE readership next year simply because I’m NOT posting every day and have “more time” to write GOOD posts, rather than ANY post. Time will tell.

  • I’m here and commenting 🙂

  • Like we discussed on Twitter, I think Twitter is part of the enemy. It builds friendships, but not necessarily blog friendships. There are only so many hours in the day to be online, and if everyone is on Twitter or Facebook, that means they are not on blogs reading and interacting. I know this because since I have been on Twitter, my blogging (both reading and writing) has suffered greatly. It is getting to the point where those on Twitter and those blogging are becoming two distinct audiences. Twitter might help those bloggers who write posts about social media and political things — those who want quick attention — but the average personal blogger is too low-key to attract much attention with the fast paced world of Twitter, especially if your posts don’t have a controversial hook. The best bet for a personal blogger is to ignore all that nonsense that the social media types expouse, because that is only useful for them. Personal bloggers have to get personal, and win friendships the old-fashioned way. One by one.

  • Commenting too. Love the blog and will keep visiting even if you just stay the same! But love all your ideas!

  • I saw this post on Mom Blogs and HAD to read it. I started blogging in Jan and had really good luck w/quite a few readers etc. And then of course, life got in the way and my blogs dwindled down to maybe 1/month. And as Nate said, FB took over my life for a couple of those months as well. In the process I seem to have lost my people! ANYway, I love the idea of the Blog Exchange. If you have any other ideas, please keep us updated as I would love some advice as well in this department! Thanks!

  • I have been blogging for almost five years and have been through the highs and the lows.

    My traffic is alright, but I really don’t have all that many commenters.

    That is in part because I don’t comment on blogs the way that I used to. There is only so much time in the day.

  • @Eboni – Thanks for the invitation and the recommendations! I’m going to check out those people!

    @Rebecca – I keep wondering about the posting less/increased readership dilemma. Let me know how that turns out!

    @Neil – The Twitter issue is a tough one to deal with because it’s doing wonders for growing my Freelance Writing business and for keeping me sane now that I’m alone most of the day! But I agree that I need a better balance between blogs and Twitter.

    @Carma and Kathy – I’m on my way!

    @restlesshousewife – I’ll keep you in the loop re:blog exchange. It would be so much fun!

    @Jack – The comment thing is a whole other ball park and a big conundrum! I love comments, but I know the amount of work it takes to keep people talking!

    Thank you for stopping by everyone! It means a lot to me!

  • I’d love to do some blog posting swaps! I think the interviews and swaps are great ways to get new traffic. Also, commenting out and participating in forums is a good way to get visitors.

    Best of luck with your new plan!

  • I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of guest bloggers. If I like a blog, I like to go and read the person who I go there to read, not some substitute.

    I love your blog though, and I come over frequently. If you figure out how to turn up the readership, let me know. I’m trying to do that too.

  • Just stopping by. I love your idea about the blog exchange and interviews! I may ask you to interview me. 🙂 I run my own photography/gift cards, etc. etc. biz.

    And I enjoy reading your tweets!

  • My goal has always been to comment on blogs if I read them. I am not always so great at it! But, I have noticed that when I make the time, I usually get more people over visiting me….

  • Ooh, those are all good solutions. You’re welcome to guest post at my place anytime 🙂
