Give people reasons to link to you… Epic posts. Huge list posts. Interviews. Reviews of other (popular!) bloggers’ work and products. One successful link bait post can bring you traffic and subscribers for years

. Add a call to action to every post

What do you want your reader to do? Give it apowerful ending. If you inspire people to act, they will see results and love you for encouraging them.

Show off your personality.

Develop your personal writing voice. Dare to be a little different. Don’t try and sound like everyone else. This will help you seem less boring.

Hone in your headline writing skills.

 You need to make your audience curious, and you always need to spell out the benefit of them reading the post. Make prospective readers and subscribers think: I have to read that, right now!

Develop a basic Editorial Calendar.

Jot down the type of posts (list, interview, reader question, personal, epic, etc.) and fill in post ideas. This is fairly simple to do, and it keeps your content regular and flowing.

Come clean with your readers about how you’ve been feeling lately

Maybe you’ve tried everything on this list, and you’re still not feeling it. Let your readers know. You might be surprised by how they respond, and maybe come up with a few words to remind you why you fell in love with blogging in the first place.

Make a real, not Pinterest, inspiration board of what you would like to achieve with your blog

Put together a collage of what you would like to achieve. Get specific. Cut out photos, write down your goals and put them up there. Make it pretty so you want to look at it all the time. This can be the first step in making your dreams a reality, by actually making them tangible.
