Initially you may have started your blog just because you needed an outlet for your ideas. That works fine for a while but eventually you want someone to start reading your stuff. I’m going to share 4 ways to light your blog on fire.
1. Post Often
Post, post, post. The more you post the better. Quick word of caution: don’t post junk. Post as often as you have something worth saying. Treat each post as if it is the first post that someone visiting your website will read. You want your visitors to read your post and stick around.
2. Share it Socially
As soon as your blog post goes live share it with the masses. Set up your blog to auto post to Twitter and Facebook.
Do this: Share a link to your new blog post at least 3 times after you publish it. Spread it out so that it reaches all of your audience.
3. Start a Subscriber List
Sign up for Mailchimp.com or another email marketing provider and start a mailing list. You can start for free. Start building your email list right now. This will eventually be the heartbeat of your blog. Embed a sign up form in each post and on your website so that it’s easy for people to sign up.

4. Set Up A Rss Feed Email Campaign
Mailchimp.com makes it really easy to add your Rss feed to an automatic mailer. Once you have your list setup (step 3) all you have to do is set up a new MC Campaign to read your blog. If it finds a new post then it will send an email to your subscriber list. Everything is configurable and easy to setup.
