How to take your blog to the next level

Have you ever been in that place where your blog seems stuck at some sort of pleateau? A few months ago, your stats were increasing daily and you were getting 10 new bloglovin’ followers per day.

Now it all seems a bit stagnant. But you can’t really understand why. Because you’re leaving blog comments, you’re joining twitter chats, you’re writing great posts and your photos are the best they’ve ever been.

You’re following all the advice out there. So why aren’t things getting better?

Level up your blogging.

level up your blog

I believe that a blog grows in stages and as you develop your voice, style, photography and your blog layout, you start to kind of level up.

I can remember key times in my blogging life where I’ve felt that level up. Almost felt it physically. I grow a few inches, my mana gains an extra 20 points, my experience goes up and I can now jump higher without gaining damage.

There does come a point where you feel like you’re just hoovering around the same level and feel lost. You just can’t seem to push through this barrier. It’s disheartening.

You feel your blog content is the best you can make it but the people just are not coming. Or if they are coming, they’re not engaging.

It’s so frustrating when you write a fantastic blog post, but hardly anyone reads it!

How to take your blog to the next level

How to take your blog to the next level.

Here’s a few ideas to get your blog growth back on track when you’ve hit a wall.

  • Comment on at least 5 new blogs per day. Leave quality comments and ask questions whenever possible to encourage engagement. I sometimes like to aim to leave the longest comment on there to really stand out and drive some traffic back to my blog. I would say 1 in 5 bloggers come back to my blog and either comment or follow.
  • Write a different type of post. Try to write something a bit different and see how your readers engage with the post. I like to  mix it up and sometimes write something a bit risky. I usually get positive responses from doing so.
  • Be really honest with yourself about the quality of your content. It’s hard in the blogging world to stand out. If you’re posting reviews of beauty products, what makes it stand out from the crowd? Just being able to take nice photos doesn’t cut it anymore as everyone has fancy cameras now (or so it seems) – is the writing interesting, do you have a style of writing, does your review bring something new?
  • Work on your headlines. Are your headlines catchy? Don’t just write the name of the product – make the title exciting so people want to click on it – try to think of it as a cliff hangover and hint at a spoiler in there!
  • Tweet blog photos. When you promote your posts through Twitter, use photos from the post to do so. People are visual and will more likely to be attracted by a photo than just a text link. I use buffer to schedule tweets/photos right from my browser.
  • Advertise on other blogs. If you know some popular blogs that have a similar audience to you, then buy an advert. A lot of bloggers offer great advertising packages that include a mention in a blog posts or social media shoutouts. You can also suggest an advert swap with a blogger who has similar stats to you.
  • Network with bloggers outside your niche. Just because you post fashion only, doesn’t mean you have to only connect with fashion bloggers. Don’t be afraid to make connections with other bloggers in different niches, in different parts of the world and in different age groups.
  • Write a post that helps others. I love writing posts that share tips on various things – these are usually my most popular posts. People are more likely to share, retweet and comment on posts that provide useful information. Aim to have a key learning that people will gain by reading your posts.
  • Play with your layout or theme. If you find myself not happy with your layout, then change it, or change some elements of it. Change your social media buttons, change your header or even something really simple – change your link colours or favicon. I recently change the font of my blog which was a subtle change that made me feel much happier.

What do you do to give your blog a boost?

I’ve had twitter for such a long time but never really understood it or used it to it’s potential – I’ve been getting into it over the past week and I’ve already seen a difference! xx

    Anyway, I’ve decided to switch from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and hopefully, that will make my blog stand out. From there, I feel like I can move to a more professional level and I’m quite excited! Thank you for your tips and your blog always has the best stuff to read:)

    I definitely agree with making catchy post titles! I know I’m also more inclined to click a post if the first photo doesn’t give too much away with the products talked about in the post, unless there are products in there that I also love/want to hear people’s opinions on it. I’m also less inclined to follow a blog that purely posts product reviews, just because it just gets so repetitive!

    Some very handy tips! I definitely agree with commenting on blogs as often as possible, and to mix it up with new-to-you blogs as well as favorite ones. It’s funny though, I think the nature of commenting in the blogosphere has changed. In the days before Twitter, comments were undisputed king. Now, comments are still a big deal (and I love them, don’t get me wrong) but since Twitter and other social media platforms have become more popular it sometimes seems as though comments carry less weight than they used to. Like, back in the day it was pretty much guaranteed you’d get an initial “comment back” if you were leaving a comment on a new blog, but now that doesn’t seem to be the case as often.

    • Reply Corinne October 26, 2014 at 10:54 pm

      I know what you mean! That makes me sad because comments are THE BEST. I think anyway.

      Twitter just seems really flippant and a little lazy. But I guess all those ‘great post, come see my new post’ comments do, too.

    • Reply Tash October 26, 2014 at 11:01 pm

      Sorry to butt in haha but this is a really interesting comment! I kinda dislike it when I find a new blogger that I really admire…and I comment on a bunch of their things with Q’s + things I’d genuinely like to know more about etc, but they never visit back or even bother responding to my comment 🙁 Yet they will for selective others! I think the whole point of the blogging community is about giving…giving and learning. Once blogs become egoistic and all about what you can do (but nobody else) – that’s the point where it becomes a website, not a blog…

      • Reply Corinne October 26, 2014 at 11:08 pm

        Thanks for stopping by, Tash!

        Yeah, I totally know what you mean – I sometimes find it hard to reply to every comment, but I always make sure I go over to their blog and comment and answer any questions I get.

        I even have a ‘system’, every day I’ll go visit the blogs of everyone that left me a comment on my previous post and leave some love back.

        It sounds a lot harder than it is, because most are regular people that I interact with and I get really into their blogs and what they’ve been up to!

        I’d much rather leave someone a decent comment on their blog than reply ‘thanks’ to every comment on my blog if I’m stuck for time!

        Some blogs get loads of pageviews and followers etc but 0 comments. I’d much prefer less followers and more comments!

  • Reply Tash October 26, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    This is really wonderful Corinne, thanks for sharing! It’s so great to hear somebody sharing their views + techniques so freely and genuinely. I find that the times I feel most as if I’m moving forward with my content – It’s because I’ve done something spontaneously/haven’t over thought it, which is pretty contradictory since it kinda feels like all of the ‘best’ ideas will be the ones that are thought through and planned properly…but this isn’t always the case! Sometimes, simply writing/doing/photographing whatever it is that your heart is telling you to, tends to have the biggest effects on others. Anyway, that’s a bit off topic! These tips are really great, I totally understand the feeling of stagnancy, and I think you’re write in saying that everyone seems to hit it at some point. We should just see it as an opportunity to do even more with ourselves 🙂 Saving this post to read over and over!

    I’m not going to lie, when I find something new that will help my blog improve or make me more efficient, I literally jump up and down and am over the moon – so blogging is so much fun and seeing it grow is one of the main positives!

    Hi Corinne, this is a very useful post. I also run a Blogging 101 series that covers various topics or questions that other bloggers might have, especially those who are starting out. Reading about tips like this might seem like common sense but it’s nice to get a wake up call so you can change up your blogging habits and focus your efforts to become more productive. But most importantly, have fun with it. Sometimes, people get too caught up with results that they forget to enjoy the whole essence of blogging.

    This is such a useful post and it’s certainly something that I’m battling with at the moment!
    Like you said, you can almost feel when you ‘level up’ – I usually buzz about it for days and feel like I’m on a complete blogging high 🙂
    I think I’ll try changing up my headlines like you suggested and also write a few different types of post to see what reacion I get from those. Thanks for all of the fab tips!

    Loved this post it was so helpful! I’ve been lacking the motivation lately but really want to start getting into blogging again and revamp my blog and this gave me so much inspiration

  • Reply Hayley May 19, 2016 at 2:58 pm

    You have some great points, I’m always finding myself in a bit of a rut, I really need to schedule some tweets but I find it the worst part of blogging as I have no idea how to mix up the tweets, they always seem to say the same boring things. I completely know where you’re coming from with blog layouts, sometimes you need to make a couple of changes to spice things up, I’m currently just looking at a new blog layout, it’s time for a change.

    Yes, you’re totally right, everyone loves a helpful post, I would love to write them but I always feel like I have nothing to add and the things that I have learnt have already been posted a thousand times, but they are some of my favourite posts to read. ♥ HWY29

    I love reading your blog tips; they’re always very helpful! The only thing I’m not really sure about is using clickbait titles… I feel like my readers would disrespect me by time if I go down that road. Maybe clickbaits work for vlogs but for blogs? I think the title should be very informative. But that’s just my opinion, and maybe it’s not as bad as I think it is.
    Thanks for sharing! x
