Spread the Word!
If you write 500 words, and great words at that, and expect those words to be read by millions, you are most probably mistaken. People need to find your words, to read them in the first place. Hence use all methods of social media at your disposal to let people know that your new article is live. This article will be shared via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and possibly other platforms such as so.cl, reddit, ezinearticles....the list goes on. Imagine your piece of literary excellence is like a physical newspaper article; selling it in one shop will get you a few readers, distributing it via many different shops and stores, will mean at least your article has the chance to shine.

Clever Titles don’t always go down well!
When we starting blogging on TheEmployable, we really had some cracking article titles. However, as our articles are measured by how much audience reach they get (unless you don’t care if they are read or not) great titles are great, but they are not so ‘great’ if they miss the audience you are trying to attract. Search Engines, like to pick up on keywords or phrases that ‘sign post’ what an article is about. An abstract article title, as great as it may sound, will probably do very little for how people find it online. Imagine your blog-title, is like a shop on the High Street and that you are blogging about fashion. If your ‘shop’ is called ‘Sarah Smith gets colourful about Trousers’ compared to “The Best Coloured Trousers” you may on the high street, end up walking into both. However when people ‘search’ online, there is little chance someone will search specifically for ‘Sarah Smith and trousers’, or ‘Colourful with Trousers’, but there is a greater chance they will search for ‘best coloured trousers’, and hence a greater chance that your articles will be found!

These are just a few points on how to start blogging successfully, and the list goes on, perhaps you can comment in the forum any blogging tips you have picked up on, that you would like to share with the rest of us...Also, why not check out a previous guest post on The Benefits of Blogging.
