What is the best way to Promote a Blog?

The best way to promote a blog is to understand the media you are using for promotion

Promoting a blog is not a tough task, unless or until you know the proper way of promotion.

This is not as easy as A-B-C of blogging and for this you have to be more choosy with an analytic mind.

But still, there are several ways to promote a blog with efficiency to get the fruitful result after promoting.

When you search online for blog promotion, then it is pre-assumed that you are also a blogger and already used some the mentioned ways to promote your blog.

Do you know that a blogger should be an active user too?

If you are not an active user, then blogging is not for you.

Because, if you can not give your time to your readers then, others also don't have time to spend on your blog.

However, there are several other proven methods of promotion but still I insist that you should rely on the media you are familiar with.

Blog promotion will work only when you have created a strong reader base or you are an active readers and commentor on other blogs with the same niche.

However, your readers can be from any niche but you should stick to your blog niche to make a healthy relation with your readers.
