Also, I am establishing a new blogging schedule, I think four times a week is a little overwhelming. So I will post on Wednesday and then every Saturday for the Serial Story. If I am tagged, then I will do that on Tag Thursday.
1. Make your background light.I get it, especially for guys, you want a dark background, but for me personally, it has to have light or I am less willing to read on it. Alea Harper's blog has dark and light, a great combination. Just put a little light on your blog, just a suggestion.
2. Have a blogging schedule.
3. Join in blog tours and/or cover reveals.
Especially if you are a writer who wants to be published some day, helping another author is great to do, plus you get free books with blog tours. Then, sometime these authors will join your blog tour and help you out. It's a great way to get people to read your blog as well.
4. Make blogging friends
Just like with writing, if you are all alone, it's really hard to do that. You don't have people to encourage. And by blogging friends, I mean CONNECT! Don't just follow their posts, actually get to know them through their About Page, which leads me to my next tip...
5. Have pages.
It's pretty simple, you can find an easy tutorial about them here. An about page lets the bloggers get to know you, which, trust me, if you are super mysterious and never tell them about yourself, it makes your readers feel like they are reading a ghosts writing. A work in progress page is cool too, as is a page with your favorite blogs. The post I linked tell you all about them.
I hope that helped, next week I will post part 2!
Oh, and also, I've started posting my novelette The New World on Wattpad! Check it out here!
