When I started out I had no idea how to get more traffic or followers and it was kind of a tough learning process. I actually almost gave up on my blog and if it hadn’t been for those two followers I had I may have actually given up on blogging altogether which is a scary thought! But thankfully I kept blogging and I eventually started gaining followers and got more traffic. This is how I got more followers on my blog and how you can too:
If you want other bloggers to view your posts and leave you likes, comments and follows you should be doing the same! Especially if you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to check out other peoples blogs- not only will you learn new things from them you’ll also start getting your own name out there. It helps to leave comments because then they’ll notice you and most likely check out your blog as well. However, make sure you don’t just like posts for the sake of it and you don’t just follow random people for follow backs because it’s important to be authentic and get real followers who will engage.
It’s so important to post regularly because your traffic and number of followers will drop as soon as you stop posting regularly. And if you post regularly you’ll notice a rise in likes and followers. I learnt that the hard way because I spent a long time posting randomly and not getting a lot of follows/likes but as soon as I started posting regularly I was like “OMG”.
Tags Are Important
Make sure to Google before you post to see what the most viewed tags on WordPress and most Goggled words are so you can add some of the relevant ones to the tags on your post. But don’t add random irrelevant tags because honestly that’s just annoying.
What’s your niche?
Make sure to like and follow bloggers who write about the same or similar topic/topics because they are way more likely to follow you back. Also search some relevant tags on your reader to find similar blogs!
Keep It Real
Keep your writing honest because people can tell when you’re being fake or lying and no one really wants to read a blog like that. People will appreciate your writing more if it’s honest and you’re not afraid to express your opinions and they’ll be more likely to give you a follow!
Have Fun With It!
Honestly, don’t stress out too much about followers and likes because at the end of the day you should enjoy what you do and if you write just for the likes/follows it will kind of suck the fun out of blogging.

This post is so motivational! As part of my class, I am to create a blog and promote it, and it goes to show what little I know of WordPress when I just became frazzled at the word “tags”, and I’m 21! This definitely has some great guidance.
-From: https://awritersinkling.wordpress.com/ 🌹.
Thank you and don’t worry everyone is like that till they figure out how to use WordPress right! Best of luck with your class assignment!
That’s great! 1k is a lot.
If I may, how long did it take and how long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for almost 4 years now and my first 1000 took me more then an year to get to but right now I get 1K followers in about 2 months.
Thank you for these information and helpful links. I am new to this blogging world as I started posting regularly last week with a new blog. I have so much to learn!
Hope this helps!
Reblogged this on LIVING THE DREAM.
Thanks for the great advice! I am trying to focus less on who follows me and more on my content. I will try my best to follow through your advice. Also I randomly followed you, but now I am learning so much, maybe a rule I won’t completely follow. -lol-
Thank you and I’m glad that you’re focusing on your content because good content makes a huge difference. Thanks for the follow!
Very interesting blog post. It definitely caught my eye to read.
Thank you so much!
Hello PoojaG, great advise. I just became disabled so now I have time to write. I have everything in place now and I’m just trying to inspire positive change in the world. Your tips have helped give me a couple more ideas of how to get my Blog out there. Thank you and have a great night.
Thank you so much and best of luck with your blog! I’m so happy to hear it helped!
INTERESTING POOJA, CHINA
I really liked your post
Great blog Pooja. U answered many questions l had as a new blogger , it’s inspiring to know how U found ur way and ur successful without giving up..
Thank you so much!!
I enjoy reading your posts. I’ve been at this for so long, but i have serious ADHD, so I can’t seem to get from a to z, if that makes sense. I know exactly what to do and what I want to accomplish, in my mind, that is, but when I go to really do it, it’s like I become paralyzed. Very strange. So between my mental health blogs and the work from home blogs, I can come up with some great things. I enjoy reading your blogs. You get the point across in plain English! Thanks for your Blogs, I’ll be reading.
Thank you so much and even though your posts may not be completely to the point I think it would bring a unique style of writing!
Great advice, especially on the googling of hash tags. Never thought of that one. Thanks!
Thank you so much!
Thanks for your helpful advice. I came to visit after Matthew at Jesusluvsall, recommended you. Blessings ♥
Thank you so much for stopping by and I’m so glad it helped!
I enjoy the practical advice your blogs offer. I am not a “serious” blogger, but I do hope to get better at it! I recently started working on my tags and you’re right, really makes a difference!
I’m liking and commenting on post as you said. Please follow me back😀
Love this post! Thanks for sharing the advice 😀
Thanks a lot for sharing these!! After a long ( really long) hiatus, I rejoined WordPress and this was the first post I saw. And it is so motivating to read these. Thanks again!
Although, I will be glad if you can help me out with the tags section 😅
So glad that it helped you and welcome back to WordPress! I’ve found that using about 4-10 tags that are not specific gets the best results.
Thanks for writing this! I just launched my blog and I have no idea what I’m doing, so it feels nice to see that everyone started from the same point lol. (Also, I’m not sure if this is against blogging etiquette, but thank you for liking my intro post!)
Lol everyone was there at some point and you’re very welcome!
Its a really inspiring one this time PoojaG….you are indeed a great writer.i launched my blog almost recently and had no idea,but thanks for your review ,its enlightening.
Thanks hope it helps!
Yea sure,it’s going to…Thanks once again
Thank you so much for all the wonderful insight. I am loving the blogging adventure so far! Your tips are very helpful.
So glad you’re enjoying blogging and the tips are helpful!
Commenting is actually a really good point that I didn’t think about. Usually just throw the likes out there and do not really say much at all. Thanks <3
Thanks. This was quite helpful
Glad to hear that!
This is a fabulous post!
Hello PoojaG! Thanks for the follow and I followed back because I really like what you are writing about! Thanks for all the tips and keep on keeping it real and fun!
Peace, love, health and prosperity,
Thank you so much!!
Thanks PoojaG. I think I am going to place this link on my blog page. And thanks so much for the tips. I only block once a week and am really trying to stay consistent with it. Am still building my site and hope to eventually get there. But thank you so much. I was about to through in the towel. But as I was taught in grade school. “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits!” Again—thanks a lot. I will definitely take this information to heart. Have a great rest of your week.
Thank you so much and I’m so glad you found the information helpful!
Thank you for this! It doesn’t seem like my page is really “taking off” or getting alot of reaction…. this post really helped lift my spirits and made me want to hang in there!
It definitely takes a while to take off so don’t worry if it hasn’t already! Glad this post helped!
Thank you this really helped me. I’m just starting out and I felt like I could just stop this whole blogging thing but thanks to you my hopes have been lifted
I’m so glad to hear that!!
Thank you for this post. It is really useful. We (my sister and I) are fairly new to blogging and we are also not very tech savvy when it comes to certain things. What my sister and I are trying to do is be more involved in the wordpress community. We have social media platforms to promote our blog, but we also want a presence and existence where our blog is hosted.
To try and do this I remembered a wordpress tutorial I did which had a hashtag for wordpress. This was the start of trying to establish a presence here. We now add this hashtag to every blog post. (#thedailypost).
We’ve recently realised that we can see other blog posts through the stream section, I don’t know why I didn’t realised this previously. There are so many things to learn. I think initially we were just trying to get our head around creating a user friendly site that anything else was a bit overwhelming.
We are very grateful for and appreciate the wordpress followers we do have, and want to build upon this. We will be checking out other posts from now on, and getting more involved, now that we have worked out how too.
Thank you so much for this post and your fun, useful and informative blog.
Thank you so much and I’m so glad to hear your blog is evolving! It definitely takes a while to figure everything out but once you do your blog does grow consistently.
Hey thanks, your post really helped. I am new to wordpress and learning about it day by day. Can you explain more about the tags as i dnt know much about it. Thanks once again
So glad to hear that! The tags section is on the right hand side of the drafts section, That’s where you type in tags- I would recommend 6-8. Hope that helps and feel free to reach out if you have more questions!
In tags what should we mention ??
Also can I add tags for blogs once i have posted them and they are online
Yes you can and I have a post specifically on how to use tags that I think you will find helpful: https://lifesfinewhine.com/2019/08/29/how-to-make-the-most-out-of-your-tags-feature/
Thank you so much
Great advice thank you
You’re welcome hope it helps!
Thank you for this post. I was wondering where I was going wrong, and how to get more followers
Hope it helps!
Thanks for the post, I have a question. I would be so happy to receive an answer! 👍
Q: How regular is regular?
I have been posting on my mental health blog quite irregularly, tops once a week. Now I am starting an English language learning blog for Peruvians in the southern city of Abancay, and I have no idea of how frequently to blog. Is once a week just too infrequent? Thanks a million 🌹
Hi! So my opinion is that the more often you post- especially if you post consistently at the same time- the more traffic/followers you will get as long as you don’t cross over to spamming people with posts. I think the perfect balance would be one/two posts a day. However, if you want to post less often like maybe 1-5 times a week it should not be a problem- although your growth will be slower- as long as you post on the same day/days and time every week. I would recommend scheduling your posts ahead of time to be posted at the optimum time for your blog. Hope that helps!
Pooja, thank you so much for replying. I will now try to post once every other day, or every day. Thank you for your kindness!
You’re very welcome and feel free to reach out if you have any more questions!
Great contents , Keep it coming
Thank you so much!
Wow! Thanks a ton for this. As a relatively new blogger, you got me at “2 followers kept you going”. Will look to actively implement these tips and hopefully stay motivated. I do enjoy blogging and I guess that is most important at this stage and not the number of followers I have. Thanks once again and happy July!
Thank you- I hope the tips help! And happy July to you too!
I am new here and I find this highly helpful. Thank you.
So glad to hear that!
Great tips! Thanks, Pooja.
I am in love with that
Haha it’s so adorable!
Fantastic write up.
Useful tips. I have given blogging twice as couldn’t find true readers. But, writing every day is key to blogging. Totally agree
Thank you and yes I agree being active and consistent is key!
Thanks for the post! Simple and easy to understand, it’s of great help to a rookie like me!
Thank you- so glad you found it helpful!
Thank you for some of these tips, definitely going to try implementing some. My real question is how do you have your blog set up so cute? Mine is still the standard as I’m not really good at changing themes or adding images. Did someone help, you YouTube? Thank you for your like 🙂
Thank you so much!! I actually didn’t find YouTube or most online stuff helpful because most of it involved using plugins and I don’t have a Business Plan so I can’t use plugins so I did it all on my own. The perfect theme for you may not exist but the trick is to customize it. I have a post on how I customized mine that you can check out: https://lifesfinewhine.com/2020/07/15/how-to-give-your-blog-a-makeover/
