Attractive Design

Even if you have great content, I doubt if people show any interest in reading your blog if you’ve been using a bad design. The primary thing that attracts a reader is the blog colors and design. If the design has a less importance, how do you think StudioPress is making more than $4000 daily just from its themes? Come on, ask yourself. Do you like to read on a blog that has very poor design or probably no design at all?

Tell Stories

Sometimes (or mostly), the best way to make the readers stick to your post is to tell them stories. We're not asking you to turn your professional blog into a storybook,but there’s nothing wrong with adding some personality into the content.


Using headings in the article is the best way to increase readership on the blog. A heading can convey the same message which a whole paragraph does. Headings inside a post looks just like these which we’ve used here. We don’t even like to read any article which has no headings in it and when we see headings, we just go through the headings and like most of the other readers, We ignore the real content. We actually doubt, how many of you are actually reading this line?


We have a very huge database of images available on the internet. Instead of making your post look so boring, add some attractive and relevant images inside the content. You can also follow your own style by adding images inside posts. Like, some people use vector images and some others use text-based images  in  blog posts. Search for some public images and add them in your blog posts. Make sure that you are not using any copyrighted/licensed material as it is considered as plagiarism.


Even if you have been using an awesome design, simple English, attractive titles and headings, no one are going to read your blog if it has low quality content. Content is the thing that matters in every blog. A blog itself is writing down the ideas/thoughts/views or whatever. So maintaining a good quality of the content is essential. on producing quality content. There are a lot of tutorials that can help you to improve your writing skills.

Not only can it increase the awareness and visibility of your blog, but interest and interaction on it as well.Use Google to find blogs that accept guest posts based on your keywords.

Build an Email List

Building an email list that allows you to consistently share your latest blog post with your subscribers is a simple, but often overlooked way to increase readership.The idea is this: give your blog readers the option to subscribe via email (not just RSS) and then create a blog notification email that immediately pings your subscribers and encourages them to check out your latest article.Use a tool such as MailChimp or AWeber to send an automatic notification each time you post to your blog.
