It is truly disappointing to put so much time, effort and confidence into writing a blog post that you just know your readers are gonna love! You know it’s gonna be one to drive a ton of traffic to your blog and because it’s just that good, you expect a good amount of feedback as well!
Unfortunately, by the end of the day … your views are still low, you got little to no reaction and barely any comments!! That is so frustrating!! I know because I’ve been there and done that with my very first blog!! I learned a lesson in it though! It’s not always that your blog posts suck haha I’m sure they’re actually really good! Sometimes you just make silly blogging mistakes that you have to learn from and that’s okay! Here’s five reasons why your blog posts aren’t getting as much interaction or feedback:
YOUR TITLES AREN’T CATCHY
I literally cannot even begin to express how important it is to make sure you come up with eye catching headlines and titles! It’s the FIRST thing readers see and we all know what they say about first impressions – you never get a second chance to make a first impression!
YOU DON’T REPLY TO COMMENTS
People don’t leave comments just for them to be left unread. The moment that your readers start to feel like they’re being ignored is the moment they stop actively being so supportive of you. I want you to know that when you take the time to reply back to your reader’s comments, you’re not only letting them know that you’re actively involved in the reading their comments, but you’re also encouraging them to come back and comment again later. Keep in mind that the action of replying back to comments whether it’s on your post or theirs is a critical part of networking!
THEY CAN’T RELATE TO YOUR POSTS
There are some readers who just flat out don’t comment on your posts simply because they can’t relate to what you’ve written about… especially those that aren’t even close to being in the same niche as you! For example, you can’t be a Fashion Blogger with the majority of your followers being video gamers. You’ll be lucky if they even open up your post and read it because ultimately .. they don’t care about fashion. Their biggest concern are the games! While it’s good to connect with people outside of your niche, it’s also very healthy to stay in good connection with those that share the same niche as you! When people can actually relate to your posts, it’s generally easier for them to comment.
WHEN READERS ARE REQUIRED TO LOG IN BEFORE THEY CAN LEAVE A COMMENT!
There some readers who LOVE your content but sometimes they’re either forced to log into something before they comment or create an account first. A lot of people would really rather not have to go through all that trouble. I personally have a couple blog friends that blog through platforms like wixsite and bloglovin. I think their sites look AMAZING and I love their posts! However, I’ve noticed that I cannot leave a comment on the posts whatsoever unless I have an account of some sort with either one of those platforms and honestly, that’s annoying because I don’t want an account with either one of those hosting platforms but I do still stop by to visit their blogs anyway. If at all possible, try to make it as easy as possible for people to interact on your blog post in your comments box. That should help.
YOU DON’T PROMOTE ENOUGH
One of the biggest reasons why you may not get a lot of views, feedback, and interaction is because you don’t promote enough. After you hit the publish button your post, there is sooo much more that you need to do after that. Utilize Social Media! Share your posts with other people. Visit their blogs, comment and then leave a link to your most recent post. It’s all about how you network!
If you’re struggling with this issue then I genuinely hope this post helps you! Once upon a time, I needed this same advice too! Thanks for reading and always supporting my blog business. Your company is greatly appreciated here!
