1. First of all a blog has to look good…as they say it’s all in presentation…first appearances…

2. but good looks will only keep them around for a short time, you want them to stick around…so you need good content…something interesting to read or something for them to do…

3. to keep them coming back you need to update with new things to read or new things to do

4. then you need to promote promote promote…like location location location…on the Internet people need to be able to know you even exist and then need to be able to find you with as little trouble as possible

5. study other people’s blogs that have the same or a similar subject matter…to improve your own blog…especially the ones that are having more success than you are

6. find out what they’re doing to promote and generate traffic, you might learn something you haven’t thought about…don’t try to reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to

7. be original, don’t just copy n’ paste other people’s work and effort…your site should be mostly original work

8. don’t steal…if you use an article , a picture, someone else’s work… provide a link back to their site…even, if it’s worth your while, e-mail them that you re-posted it and provide them the link, they might come and check you out and if they like what they see link back to you

  2. I should comment more on other people’s sites but it’s hard to find the time…even finding the time to update my own sites seems an almost impossible task.

  3. Cool Blog Tips:)
    I liked your Way of Writing..Really Impressive and Cool.. Just what a Blogger Really need.
    Most of the Tips you have listed here is told by ‘Thousands of Bloggers” Before. But this article seems pretty Odd one.
    BTW Point “5” is really a great fact. Learning from Others is the best and easiest method for Success.

    Thanks. Keep Blogging. Best of Luck.

  4. 9. Don’t forget to comment on peoples sites when you read their stuff. After all, you sit there waiting for people to comment on yours. (Wasn’t going for ironic here)
