Promoting Your Blog
Keeping your blog

to friends, family members, and users who express a genuine interest in your content.

through posting media sites
such as Tumblr
can be very beneficial.

and content sharing where you would be required to write a smaller post on its own in order to promote the main one on your blog

onto this mini post, but instead write new content and link
it to your own blog post
Third is content sharing.
These sites are a little bit different than social media
because you have to share other people’s content in order for your to be shared and viewed.
Triberr, Social Buzz Club

are just some examples of content sharing websites

and many more can help bolste
r and build the reputation of your blog

is original, informative, and adheres to the regulations and guidelines of whatever directory or directories you choose to use.

through RSS feeds
