  •  You get plenty of comments here..and no (7+ / 0-)

    comments doesn't necessarily mean no readers. It depends on what kind of blog you have, whether people comment.

    A fast way to build readership for a personal blog is to cross-post on other blogs so that you're driving traffic back to your blog. It also helps to have a focus or to get known for a certain kind of content. And, of course, posting regularly.

    That said, if you're already published and have found a solid fan base for your work, blogging is not what you should be spending your time doing, but rather writing more novels for your fans. Blogging is more effective for building a platform before you find an agent and publisher.
