Huge audience challenge

As the prompt for Day three of blogging 101 says, ‘Blogging is a communal experience.” I couldn’t agree more. We blog because we want others to read our thoughts and ideas. We would not continue if others never read our work.

As we want others to read what we publish, so too do others want us to read what they publish. So it becomes like in marriage. You have to give and take. If you only take, you will soon find nothing to take.

There are many befits that have accrued to me from engaging with a blogging community. Now I have friends all over the world. That makes me proud. Secondly, I have learned a lot from both young and old.

But two problems stare me in the face. Although my dream is to have as many readers as possible, and although I do not yet have as many readers as I dream to have, already I am unable to manage the ones I have. I continue to wonder how those who receive more traffic than I do manage them.

And I feel really bad that many people visit me and like my work but I cannot return the kindness because I find it hard to visit all of them.

I would appreciate if somebody could kindly tells me how they handling this issue.

This is point one. Point two has to do with my mission. I blog not just to be read but to inspire, motivate and encourage my readers to bring out the best in themselves and achieve their dreams. What worries me is am I not running after an audience that may not be those who actually need what I am giving. The focus of everybody on the blogosphere seems to be traffic. We hit like on people’s sites so that they may come to ours. At the end of the day, how many people actually read what we write carefully to benefit from it.

My question is how can I stay focused on those readers who find what I write helpful and read not to encourage me to come to their own site but to benefit from what I write; to use it to change their lives.

It looks like most of blogging is running around liking and commenting without actually benefiting from the immense wealth of knowledge that fills the pages of sites on the blogosphere.

This is a real worry to me. If I can have ten people who read what I have written and use it and it actually changes their lives shall I not have succeeded more than having one thousand people on my site a day who only hit the like button without having read what I have written?

I appreciate if somebody cold say say something about this.

Day Three: Say Hello to the Neighbors

Blogging is a communal experience; if you didn’t want anyone to read your posts, you’d keep a private diary. Today, you’ll engage with the blogging community, the first step in building an audience.

Today’s assignment: follow five new tags in the Reader and five new blogs.

How to increase your blog audience dramatically

YOU CAN ATTRACTDON'T SELL YOURSELFDon’t be surprised to read this!

You will definitely be if you look at my blog stats. But get my message before you draw a conclusion.

How did I come to this?

I got worried that some people were drawing so many visitors to their blogs while others who were doing an equally great job were not.

Now I have got it.

I can’t wait to grow my own audience before sharing this knowledge with you. I like that we grow together.

It gives me joy to see people shining. Helping people shine has helped me shine. Helping you grow your audience will make me grow mine.

Tips on growing an online audience ought to be made easy. Many of the ones I have come IMG_0178across are difficult to follow and bloggers end up lost, mixed up and frustrated.

Thus, I have decided that I will get one thing at a time from the experts and explain it to you in a simple, straight-forward, easy-to-understand way for you to easily follow and apply on your blog.

Instead of allowing you to be running around the net searching for the techniques to grow an audience, I will do it for you. This is what this blog is all about.

That is not all.

I will give you links to the experts; but going to them will be a waste of your precious time as I intend to explain everything to you in the simplest way possible.

Will you come with me? Do you like it. Is it worthwhile? Why not reblog and tweet this for more  people to benefit from the offer10462725_799094656803370_2394212506846015203_n
