Good morning WordPress world,
I started a food blog in Nov. 2011 and I've really enjoyed sharing and posting. I'm discouraged however, because I feel like no one cares! LOL. I try to write interesting posts, even asking questions to boost interaction but I never receive comments. Yes, comments are enabled. When I share to social media sites, my friends tend to comment on the social media post and not my blog (not necessarily a bad thing, at least they're reading it!).
For those of you who've had a blog for a long time and have many followers, how did you get to the point where folks commented? I see these blogs featured on Freshly Pressed and they have 50 comments at a time. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Would you be so kind to check out my blog and provide feedback? I would love an honest opinion!
While I'm grateful that my mom, family members and close friends like my posts, I'd like to reach a larger audience.
I've promoted my blog on all the social network sites, read and comment on other blogs often, am using the Follow widget, filled out my Gravatar profile and I'm trying to be patient. I've also tried to focus my blog to gain an audience that has the same interests. I've read all the information on promoting my blog that WordPress has to offer.
Any other ideas on how I can increase traffic, get interaction and new followers would be awesome. Thanks for your support! Much appreciated.
The blog I need help with is rebekahacarr.wordpress.com.
