How Would You Celebrate Two Million Pageviews for Your Blog?

Plus a few thoughts on things I have learned along the way.

  1. Narrow Your Focus
    At first I wrote about anything. Over time I focused on a handful of specific themes, and organically built a following.
  2. Make a Covenant with Your Readers
    Promise yourself to give them content that makes it worthwhile for them to actually click on your link and give up a small amount of time to read what you are sharing.
  3. Develop Systems for Sharing
    The saying, “If you build it they will come,” worked in Field of Dreams, but in the real world there is so much competition for your potential reader’s eyeballs that no one will know that you have been blogging unless you let them know. I used Twitter and Facebook. Getting new readers on Twitter is hashtag driven and I do not feel it to be manipulative. As for Facebook, I do not buy ads and only post on my wall. If friends want to check things out, they may. I am not trying to be pushy, just letting them know. I do not seek out new friends just to get followers. People seem to reach out to me for their own reasons, and some to actually get to know me.
