Have you ever looked at a blog that only had a few posts and no followers? Most people start blogs without knowing that they will need to put in hard work to get to the number of followers that they want. Successful blogs are based on having traffic to your site, quality writing, and sticking with the blog even when it seems like its not going anywhere.
When you create a blog, your first priority should be writing quality pieces. This step is most important because even if you get traffic to your site, what will they read? The content that you write needs to be high quality to ensure that people continue to come back.
Once you have followers, a lot of your site traffic will be returning visits; therefore, you should try to give your readers the best writing that you can.
