Catching up on blogging, it is very difficult to reach the heights without the location of grateful respect for readers and fellow bloggers. Both must be earned, in principle, as in real life. Unfortunately, it turns out this is not always and not at all, although someone might not want. In any case, this process requires special attention and time spent."Reputation" need to "grow" a couple of hours or days to implement his plan will not work. I offer you ten simple and proven time and practice rules, following which, you can do it right and get the result. Of course, the mere implementation of these rules and regulations does not give you any guarantees, but much may increase the chances of success in the blogosphere. And even if you do not become super popular blogger, you can at least find a couple of good friends or even friends online.
Always write honestly. Mistaken and deluded in some way does not matter if it's an honest mistake. The reader feels the sort of thing. Especially do not forget that we often read by people smarter and more skilled than you, so if you're fighting for the loyalty of the audience, be very frank.
As an example the situation with advertising posts - do not conceal from his readers, that for a particular publication you receive remuneration. Learn it's not that hard, but the reaction of the audience is unlikely to be positive. Similarly, you can cite as an example a description of their achievements - cheating the readers, you will not get anything good, to some extent even be deceiving ourselves. In short, fairness in the blogosphere, as in life, it's good quality!
Respond to comments and letters
For each comment, and a letter demanding an answer must necessarily respond. Without the attention you can leave only comments like "a" or "offset". If you have a question in the comments, it implies an answer. And the reader expects to get it. Do not disappoint him. The same goes for emails. Even if you can not help or you do not have enough skill, and should answer, but you should always respond. On this depends not only on visitors to you personally, as even the evaluation of the usefulness of the site on which it will or will not go further.
Respond to reader
"The response to the reader" implies not only the need to respond to comments and emails. "The response to the reader" - the ability to anticipate the needs and interests of the audience and to implement them. So, in other words, it's an art to understand and to give his readers what they need. To find out the visitors and their needs better, you can create a poll in my blog , where to ask or note your desired topic for consideration, any steps to improve the project. Most sites are placed in the feedback form to contact with readers and an opportunity for them to give some advice and recommendations on the best of his work. In any case, there are several options, it is important to listen to them and implement them.
Always be friendly and people will be pulled to you. There's not much to add or explain further. In spite of his bad mood, personal problems and any other nasty nuances, you should not show it, or projected on its readers. Blogging has much in common with the work, which is also very important to safeguard personal and professional moments.
Respond appropriately to criticism and opposing your point of view. If you are not right, it is necessary to admit it. Do not give in to provocations, to be led by "trolls." And any attempt to "stir up" conflicts or to get personal, I would recommend you as the author and head of the blog, hard to stop. Another important thing - do not be a "star", remember that the concept of top bloggers are very relative.
