On Blogging

Someone asked me the other day “how do you get so many readers and all those comments?”

Well that’s easy we pay them …. No not really we threaten them with frying pans … no we don’t do that either

Its interactivity, the art of conversation. See its not just one person posting a blog and then others reading it its not that at all, you have too answer. It doesn’t matter who answers can be another person but if you can get a discussion going you can and will get lots of comments

Post a blog with a question at the end ask people what they think about the subject and answer them

What can I do about…

How can I…

What do you think…

I’ve seen blog posts that are a single dot get over 150+ comments; seen long well written posts that make you think get very few, why did the single dot get hundreds? Because the person who posted it carried on the conversation in the comments section most of that 150+ where actually theirs

We talked about the lurker the other day, well even the lurker can’t resist answering a question and they are intrigued by the post with lots of comments.

The other ways too get people reading are

Time and subject matter

Timing counts big time, its no good posting a blog at 11.30pm on a Sunday evening not many awake at that time, unless you are on the other side of the world (Hello America when you wake up)

Friday nights and Wednesday mornings (US time) are the best times too post if you want people too see straight away of course you can always blast your post later, not straight away though as your blast will cover your post on Home

The subject that you write about matters too especially if it’s already been done most memes or “cheeze” have already been done, most readers want too know about you, what you had for dinner, how are the kids, what the dog is doing and they want you too write it, doesn’t matter if you can’t spell your readers want you, not some copy pasted check box meme from another site and if you have copied it chances are someone’s already read it

Note on copy pasting: If you copy from another 360º page it may just run your posts into one another, its extra html code hidden on the page. Do not copy entire blog posts or web pages, your 360º blog will go all weird looking

Today’s Blogging tips are

Ask a question

Write it yourself

Post at a time when people are awake

Do you have any more tips too give people?
