Lost in the Blog Jungle

Ok, I have a confession to make.  I am lost in the great blog jungle armed only with my sharp wit and occasionally sharp tongue .  I’m sure with enough patience and lots of hours cruising around Mr. Web  I could find great ways to increase my readership.  The facts are, I don’t have hours to spend and you all probably know the answer anyway.

So riddle me this: What are the top three ways that YOU use to increase traffic to your blog?

Whoever gives me the most useful answer will receive a happy digital reward that they are free to display on their blog if they so choose.  Contest deadline is Friday, Mar 5 at 10am (Mountain standard time).

So get commenting already!



  1. You have an excellent blog with a professional look and feel. I don’t know what kind of traffic you’re getting, but there certainly are ways to increase the number of visits and page reads you get per day, and most of them are fairly easy.

    I don’t want to look like a spammer, so email me if you’re interested in joining a small group of fairly new bloggers. We’re sharing what we’ve learned from variou net sources and workshops.

  2. Well, I sure am not going to win the contest 🙂 just like you, I am pretty clueless and lost about this but I know I would love to increase my readership so if you find the magic formula, just let me know 🙂

  3. Alrighty people, due to the underwhelming response to this challenge I will reserve my digital reward for a future contest. So there. Rick and Lua a big high five for responding, thanks for your support and readership.

  4. […] Lost in the Blog Jungle – A straight out solicitation for ideas to improve blog readership, even with a bribe of a digital reward. […]

  5. I’ve been a little slow w/ reading lately so I’m just seeing this. When I first started someone turned me on to Darren Rowe at, he has great tips about blogs. I think he’s currently doing a series.
    One is to visit lots of other blogs and leave [good] comments there!
    On my other, anonymous, blog, I have a group of about 12 regular commenters…would love to up that as well

    • Thanks for sharing, I’ll go check Darren Rowe out. I have also found the best way to attract great people to your blog is to hunt them down and comment/compliment on their blog. Happy Writing!
