I don’t read as many blog posts as I used to these days. This makes me sad. It’s difficult having time for all the things I want to do in life. So when I do get a spare 30 minutes to read some blogs, I make sure I pick the posts I want to read carefully.
Time is precious, you see.
So here are the 5 things that make me want to read your blog post.
The most important thing is our history. Sounds romantic, right? Thing is, if I love you I’ll probably always want to read your blog.
There are some blogs I’ve read for years and they range in topics, quality of writing, quality of photos, how popular they are… these things don’t matter as much as our relationship.
If we’ve spoken lots, commented on each other’s blogs a lot and had conversations in private with each other I’ll always remember that.
There is something to be said about having authority in your niche. There is usually a reason for this and it’s usually because you’re knowledgeable, have a way with words or can take killer photos of your outfits. I’ll be more likely to click your blog link if you’ve given me the impression that you’re knowledgeable.
Your social media.
If I follow you on social media or see lots of people retweeting your posts in my feed, it’s going to get me interested in you.
Like having authority, something that gets shared a lot makes me interested. Seeing your images on Instagram or in stories makes me curious. The more I am exposed to something, the more I grow to like it. So seeing your aesthetic on Instagram translate to my Bloglovin feed could get me to click.
OH COURSE THE TITLE. If it sounds interesting, I’ll click.
This could be a title that makes me think I’ll learn something or something that sounds controversial. It might be something I’ve experienced myself so I’m interested in it.
My emotions at the time can have a big impact on what I want to read. If I’m feeling inspired to make my blog better, I’ll be looking for tip posts. If I’m bored with my wardrobe, fashion posts it is.
Obviously, you can’t impact my emotions – but you can use the other 4 things that make me read your blog to ensure I come to you when I’m looking for something specific.
