It will be better to make comments on blogs that have fair number of readers, but also you should read and make comments in some freshman’s blog also.  This will give them a boost and you also will be get benefited.

  • Use pictures and videos as the part of contents in your posts and that will attract more new readers.  Use PowerPoint presentation or sliding pictures where it is needed.  These items will give your blog a unique appearance.  Readers are always in search of different types of blogs with good and valuable contents.  Use keywords and tags for these items also for search engine optimization.
  • When you get a comment about your post, give them a polite reply through the blog itself or through their email id.  It will bring more interest in the comment makers and they will become your followers.
  • Interact with your readers through discussion, quizzes etc.  Always be active and that will give you unexpected positive results.  If your contents are useful for the readers, they will become your followers and participate in every interaction programs that you introduce through your blog.
  • Offer some reports, eBooks or some software programs freely in occasional intervals.  That will become a reason for many to visit your blog regularly.  These offers should have some value and it should be useful to the readers.

It's not possible and practical just to write articles and to expect it to be read by a lot of people. An effective blog writer should be able to draw targeted customers to his blog successfully.
