What am I doing wrooong??!

  1. My blog is almost a year old and I'm very worried because it's still tiny! Is there something I should be doing to boost my readership?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Try this;

    You should find tons of very good advice here. Hope it helps.

    Jess. :)

  3. It's already recommended 4 months ago.

    And My words here You've switched your theme now, (The last one really suited to your blog) and the content is not as ordered as it was 3 months ago, the last time I visited your site. It looks you post less frequently. Blogging once a month and then expect your blog to flourish is useless. Keep posting good content. My best wishes are with you.

  4. Thanks, guys.
    Sigh :-(

  5. It is probably just because you don't post very often. I only post once a week, but I think anything less than that will start to affect the page impressions.

    I had my blog for five years and never really promoted it. I wrote a couple of entries a month. But now that I'm active in other related blogs and post daily, my readership has gone from 100 views a day to 1,000 views a day in about six months. So I think it has a lot to do with how active you are with other blogs and how often you post. It also helps to link with facebook and twitter and such.

  7. 1000 views a day for a blog on anorexia?! That's amazing.

  8. I tried linking to FB but with friends and family like mine it was a total waste of time. Not one person even 'liked' much less viewed. So I gave up and concentrated on those blogs etc who shared similar topics and subjects, and who appreciated my subject.

    @tltcl: Why, do you think anorexia would be boring?

  10. @tltcl - any blog that's about a health disorder will get a large readership. People like to find others who share their problems.

    @recoveringanorexic - you're right about the way you're getting readers - commenting in other people's blogs is the best way to do it. And - I've taken a look at your blog (unfortunately not enough as I'd have liked as my internet connection keeps breaking) and it's brilliant. :)

    @absurdoldbird -- thanks so much for the feedback! Also, thank you for commenting on my latest entry; I appreciate all the help I can get.

  12. You're welcome. :)

  13. I never stated that a blog about anorexia would be boring - careful you don't jump to assumptions! I just didn't think that it would have wide appeal. Just shows what I know...

    @tltcl: I wasn't trying to state what I said in a snarky way, so sorry if it came off like "assuming." I was really just curious to know.

  15. Yet when I write about piles, no one takes notice =/

  16. @pete - that's cos only us Brits know what you mean... ;)

  17. Haha the word must be spread!

  18. The word, but hopefully not the piles...
