Having published your first blog entry your thoughts are winging their way through the blogosphere, reaching millions of people who are hungry for your knowledge, wit and/or wisdom.

NOT SO.

Those millions are overfed with more than 217 million blogs vying for attention and swamped with a growing number of blogs posted everyday. See the Worldometer, in real time, as the daily world blog count rises – as posts are made. Hang onto your seat then go here to the Worldometer.

The trick is how to drive readers to your blog:

  • Set up your blog on your author’s website. Then duplicate your blog on a separate blog, ie: blogger
  • Link your blog to automatically post to your Facbook and Twitter pages
  • Blog regularly – more than once a week
  • Start registering your blog on blog directories.
