I know that authors love to write and imagine that everyone is reading every word they write, but how is anyone going to find your blog if you don’t market the blog on a regular basis.
You didn’t know that you had to market the blog? Well, guess what? You do! And if you’re not familiar with the techniques, you can post a request on elance.com or learn to post Tweets on Twitter.com, write articles and post them on the various article websites, post links on Facebook, MySpace and YouTube. That’s a good start, but when you look at the big picture, you’ll realize that this is a never ending cycle of gaining recognition through the resources on the Internet.
We are so lucky to have the resources that are available through Web 2.0. Every day presents new and better ways to gain visibility and recognition for our expertise.
I was reading a RSS (like a news feed) which led me to Tony’s blog and after reading the blog I immediately emailed Tony and suggested that I would like to guest blog for him. He read through my blog and agreed and suggested that we talk live.
That’s the best way to promote your own blog. Tap into others’ highly ranked blogs and websites and catch the wave of their success.
