We all have different ideas about what it means to be successful in blogging. For most people, blogging success is measured by income. Are you satisfied with what your blog brings in each month? If your blog makes $100.00 a month, why not try to push that to $500.00 a month? Maybe you make $5,000.00 a month from your blog(s). Think you can up that $10,000.00 in 2008?
Growing your blog will eventually convert into increased income through advertising. We are already two weeks into 2008, but it isn’t to late to set up your blog goals for the new year. Dosh Dosh has written about 16 effective strategies to expand your blogs reach in 2008. In this post you’ll find a bunch of ways to grow your blog, including a few that you might not have thought of.
When skimming through the list, the first thing you’ll probably notice is that blogs tend to grow and become popular not with posts, but with other things. Have you published an eBook? Maybe you’ve considered setting up forums? You could also build a tool or offer some sort of service to your readers to help grow your traffic and place them on a sub domain. I think if you take the time to dig through many of these popular blogs, you’ll find all sorts of things set up on sub domains to help grow the domains value.
There are other great things on the list as well. Another thing that I’ve done is set up a blog network. If you’ve got 10 blogs, have you thought about cross referencing them?
There are a host of other great ideas as well, so I recommend you check it out!
