Increasing Blog Traffic

I came across this great post over at Mom on the Run's blog and I thought it was so great I wanted to share it with you. Be sure to head over to her blog to read these tips more indepth, but I wanted to summarize them here.

All of us want to increase our blog traffic, right? I know I do. Of course I truly value my old reader's, but I also like to make new friends and discover new blogs. With new blogs comes new information and that is always welcome. Except I need more hours in the day to read them all, but that's another post :).

So here is the list of ways to increase blog traffice courtesy of
Mom on the Run.

1. RSS Feeds
2. Blog Ads - like entrecard
3. Site design/Site layout - having a nice looking site that attracts readers and is easy to navigate.
4. Blog Content - having things to say that interest your readers and bring them back for more.

Again, be sure to check out
Mom on the Run's blog for a more indepth discussion about these key points.

Do you have any tips that you would add to this list? Let me know, I'm always looking for ways to increase my readership.

I prefer blog posts that include pictures and text that can be read quickly between work tasks. Longer posts I tend to save for later, and sometimes I forget to go back.
Somewhere I read never to do a blog post without a graphic or picture to go with it and I like that rule of thumb for as often as it's relevant.
This one was perfect!

Thanks for posting these! I will honestly say one thing that has driven up my readers is participating in this Blog Party..I have increased to over double my daily readers. I have enjoyed doing this so much and learning about everyone!

People seem to like my blog because it is about the funny adventures of me as a nanny. It is a different topic, it isn't nasty or slanderous just funny things that happen along the way.

I have a contest till Thursday I hope you can enter!
