This tip is the outmost thing every blogger needs to follow if so, it will completely change your blogging game. When you treat all the articles in your blog as your products, you will start getting more comments on your articles and also more traffic will be diverted to your blog. Just like a product will be of use only when you are sure about what others want from it, similarly an article will only be big hit with like and comments if the blog owner has an idea about what the users are looking for. So, before you post an article on your blog tweet a question with multiple choice answers and let the users take a poll on it. Depending on the review you get, choose the subject of the article and go with it. Your article will surely be a big hit.
Just like a user will pay for a product if it is really worth the money, even articles will only be read if they have some quality in the content. If you do provide quality content no user will be ready to pay for reading the article.
A blog needs to be refreshed with new content all the time just like a product with something new about it. So, even if there are any errors in the language or formatting errors, just hit the publish button for the time being. You can always go back and correct them. One more important thing is you have to reply to the comments on your posts to keep your readers engaged.
