How to Find Readers for Your Blog Through Commenting and Relationships

Today’s episode is about how to find new readers for your blog. It’s the question I get asked most by bloggers, so this is the forth of a series of podcasts on this topic.

In part one we looked at two really important questions to ask before you go hunting for readers to read your blog.

In part two, we talked about how to use two types of content to find readers for your blog.

In part three, we talked about building a blog that readers will want to return to again and again (a ‘sticky’ blog).

Today, we talk about how to grow your readership by commenting and networking.
