I have seen many bloggers who have very nice blogs as well as more than 500 followers. But their nice blogs get only 2-3 numbers ‘likes’ and may be few numbers ‘views’. I wondered. So nice post it is! Then why does he/she gets so less viewers? After thinking a while, I got the answers.
Have you possessed a big flat? The inside beauty of the flat is awesome, mind blowing. Have you decorated your flat only for you or do you want to show it’s beauty to your relatives and friends? But, unfortunately nobody visits your house as you are too busy to visit your relative’s house. How will you feel then?
Think in another way. You are visiting other’s house and getting nice ideas and implementing those at your house. People are also visiting your house, giving you lots of appreciation and taking your ideas. How will you feel?
Of course, you will feel better in second option of the thinkings.
Similary, this happens in blogging also. Treat blogging as online house. If you don’t visit and appreciate others online house, you will not get appreciation,you will not get visitors. Don’t say that you have decorated your house only to satisfy you. Don’t say that you don’t need appreciation. Don’t say that you don’t need visitors.
Some people are saying that – “I decorate my house only for myself”. I am not telling that he/she is telling a lie. But they are telling their instant feelings. May be for sometime, they are being happy in satisfying themselves. But this good feelings don’t exist for the long time. The feelings someone gets after receiving compliments stay for long periods and can lead your mind in good direction.
It is true that some great bloggers don’t like/comment often on others blogs. I feel that the reason behind this is lack of time. Simultaneously, I believe that they read your post, they collect the ideas/theme of your blog. Thus, number of viewers and number of likes are not matching.
So, if you don’t have much time to read others blogs, just open the blogs, read the theme to collect the ideas. It is not necessary to comment every time. But it is very necessary to click on “like” button, otherwise how that blogger will recognize that you have read his/her blogs.
It is like – “Door was opening in a house and you entered into the house and then left the house without meeting the person of the house”.
It is like- you went to a house, visited through windows and did not press the calling bell and returned back to your house. How will he/she understand that you have gone too visit his/her house?
So, if you want to increase number of viewers, be a visitor first. What you expect, give it same first. It is not – “Take and Give”, rather it is “Give and take”.
Best wishes for getting more visitors for your blog-house.
