These posts are meant to bring about some conversation, discussion, and perhaps even a debate. These discussion posts can occur at varying days of the week, mostly depending upon what's scheduled on the blog and what I feel like discussing.
I mentioned something along the lines of "how do I get more readers to look at my blog?" the other day on Twitter, and I started talking to Natalie @ Novel Reads about this dilemma.
I know that I'm still a fairly new-ish blogger, and with my URL move and all, it's even more confusing for some people. But I do think I've been trying a lot harder, both for myself and for my audience. I know I don't have to post every day, and the main reason that's been able to happen is that I had a bunch of old reviews that I wanted to circulate out after my URL switch. I try to have original content and make my reviews interesting or insightful to read. I try to sort of promote my blog via Twitter.
I mean, yes, I still blog for myself. I don't necessarily think about my stats and my page views or anything like that, but as much as many of us hate to admit it, it is important sometimes. Plus, I like knowing that people do read what I put out there. I want to blog because I want to talk about books and TV shows and music and movies. That's part of the reason why I LOVE comments. I want to talk to you guys! (And extra shout out to Cait @ Notebook Sisters for constantly commenting on my posts.)
So what I want to know is, how do you think is the best way to increase readership and reach a larger audience? Is there any way other than time and chance/luck? What makes you follow or read a blog's content? And just for me to know, why do you/do you not come back to Fly to Fiction and read my posts/reviews?
