With so many blogs out there, how do you stand out from the crowd???
firstly, learn more about the blogsphere. everything in cyberspace evolves very quickly, so you need to stay abreast of turneds, keep your eyes peeled on blog related news and think about how you can be an early adopter of new trends or technologies. for example, would a new plugin be more helpful to your blog?
secondly, research fresh topics. this is essentially what will keep you readers coming back to your blog for more. find interesting topics and be a master. you'd want them to appear in search engine results.
lastly, actively promote your blog. you need to spend at least half an hour a day making links on social sites to your sites to bring in traffic. comment on others blogs or anything to make yourself visible amid the clutter.
