I am always trying to find ways to make my blog better. I've finally gotten over 100 followers but my blog traffic is still low. I've tried many suggestions and just recently I've shortened my posts with the Read more link. I don't know if thats better or should I have left it the way it was with the entire post on the page? All help and suggestions appreciated.
I am completely brand new to social networking! in fact I have had to get my thirteen year old daughter to open most of my accounts for me.
I self-published two books on Amazon at the start of the month and ever since then I have been opening various accounts (FB-twitter-Blogspot ect) my friend list is gradually growing but i seem to have a problem with my blog.
I cannot for love nor money get a comment on my page, I have been posting material every day now for two weeks offering competitions and little writing tests yet still cannot get a reply.
I have started to wonder if there is anything wrong with my web etiquette or the actual function of the site, I am sure I am not that uninteresting!
two days ago I followed a blog on Google which asked its readers to post a short poem about an object, I spent the next fifteen minutes replying with the following;
What a great invention they are, my knife and fork
beef, chicken, vegetables, slicing onions or my pork
They come in wood,plastic or the finest Sheffield steel
every day I use them for every single meal
Just think of life without them, and how it would bring strife
how would I eat my dinner, without my trusted knife
I use them in the morning, I use them in the night
cutting fillet steak or spreading my Marmite
I place them on the table before the Sunday roast
and use them nearly every day when I'm buttering my toast
I used to think of them as a chore when I washed them in the sink
But now I have realised how essential they are I will smile at them and wink!
I know its silly but I only did it out of courtesy but I have not received a reply or a like, nothing, so it is making me wonder if I am doing something wrong?
My blog is
Any help or advice you could give me would be very much appreciated
