Thirteen Ideas to Grow Your Blog

It’s no secret that every blogger likes an audience.  I’m no different.  So, this week, while talking with Jazz and Anna I’ve thought of different ideas of how I could grow this one—let me know what you think.

  1. Post frequently – A given since people don’t like to read a blog that doesn’t have new content.
  2. Have a different writer– This I’ve accomplished with adding Jazz.
  3. Run a Contest – Thought of this before…  Anyone want a contest where you could win the next VeggieTales video when it comes out next month?
  4. Poll Questions – Ask a question…
  5. Pretend to be in a fictional place and write from there.
  6. Discuss what VeggieTales characters would play a part in another fictional series.
  7. Have a VeggieTales Photoshop contest.
  8. Enter many Thursday Thirteens.
  9. Write more VeggieTales video reviews.
  10. Comment on other’s blogs.
  11. Join a VeggieTales newsletter.
  12. Buy Big Idea – Did you hear it was for sale.
  13. Advertise.

    I’ll take a plum crayon. The blogsphere has been quiet these days. I do about 4 on your list.

  4. Karen says:

    You make me feel old — 4 indeed!  LOL  Thanks for stopping by my TT!!

    It’s always a challenge – driving more traffic to your blog. Looks like you have some pretty good ideas here. 

  6. Wow, I didn’t know Big Idea was for sale. That’s always a little worrisome. What will new buyers do with the precious veggie tale characters? Scary stuff.

  7. Stace says:

    What a great list!! Thank you so much for sharing 😀

    I do a few of those, but actually I write mainly for the therapy.  I don’t sell or convince or intrigue or proselytize; I just like the thinking and planning required—and I like learning from others.

    Great list. I would enter a contest if you had one. I am a contest junkie. lol. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy TT.

  10. Betty says:

    My daughter loves the Veggie Tales… or maybe it’s just me who loves the Veggie Tales… either way- I’d love it if you had a giveaway for the new Veggie Tales DVD.

  13. Anna Ananas says:

    I like number six! Can we, can we? Huh? Can we?

  14. JazzRasp says:

    You added me?  You’re blessed that I love you   ; )

  15. Lilibeth says:

    Well, I think you have veggie tales covered; I’ll try something else. I do try to post often though, and sometimes I have guest writers. A contest…sounds intriguing…nah.

  16. Wendy says:

    Great ideas!!! I have very low traffic on my page so I might try some of these ideas.

  17. Trish says:

    great list – commenting on other blogs is very important I am always finding new blogs via comments on my posts or reading comments people write on other peoples -that get me interested.

  18. These are some good practical ideas.  I’m always looking for ways to grow my readership…it’s kind of been stagnant lately.  I also wanted to thank JazzRasp for stopping by and commenting on my TT…that’s always an encouragement!

  19. Jenny says:

    A veggie contest sounds like fun, Veggie tales came after my kids’ time. But it would be fun.

  20. Julie says:

    Great ideas..I will make sure to drop back in!

    I think those are some good ideas! I’m just blogging for fun myself, not trying to accomplish a goal really, but definitely visiting others is one way to increase your visibility I think, and the Thirteens definitely always give my blog a jump on those days! 😀
