Okay, so people are starting to find your blog. Hooray!! You are building up an audience and they seem to like what you have to say. Woohoo!! You’ve even gotten a few comments on your last posts. Alright!!
But maybe you’ve noticed that the visits are a little sporadic. Or you wish that the comments were coming more consistently. The question to ask yourself now is….”what do I need to do to make sure my visitors come back again?” And the best answer to that question is: MAKE SURE YOU MAKE IT EASY FOR THEM!
The most important way to make sure that visitors find your blog again is by double-checking that you have a blog feed enabled. A feed is kind of like what it sounds like – – a way to give your hungry readers exactly what they want…your blog!
If you create a way for readers to subscribe to your blog feed, then they can be automatically notified anytime you create a new post. It is their choice of how to receive that feed – – by email or in a feed reader. But the nice thing is they don’t have to DO anything to find you. Your blog comes to THEM!!
