Here’s one of the most valuable pieces of advice I’ve seen about establishing your blog.
Always end a post by asking for comments.
There’s a few ways that you can do this:
- write something controversial and ask for opinions
- finish your post with a question
- just straight out ask “what did you think of this post?”
I’ve seen people with established blogs who flat out demand posts (“I’m not posting until I get 10 comments”). I’m not planning to do that, but I guess it works for some! 🙂
But, asking for comments is definitely a great tactic, and only takes seconds to add to what you’re already posting.
So let’s do just that.
