It takes time for users to find your blog. Continue building quality content and users will slowly but surely find your blog and become loyal readers. You also have to treat your blog like any other website or business. You have to market it.
Secondly, a blog hosted by a third party will never become a huge income generating blog, if that is your goal. You would want your blog to have it`s own domain name.
We actually launched a blog this week and just like you we haven`t gotten any comments yet. Don`t be discouraged though, as I was building our blog I did quite a bit of research and found out that typically you need somewhere between 8 and 20 posts to start building momentum.
I`d also recommend utilize some of the social bookmarking websites like del.icio.us and reddit.com to build your intial traffic.
I made a blog entry about some of the things I learned in my research phase, perhaps it can be of some assistance. You can find it here:
Thank you! You are providing such wonderful information....keep it coming!
This blog was my attempt to incorporate tech-friendly ways of marketing. Plus the blog seemed like a fun way to engage people in a dialog. I am currently in the process of building a "team" with another Realtor so right now I have two websites: my site and the team site. I will have to check to see if one or both will allow me to link the blog as either a blog page in the website or as a URL link to the blog.
Not only am I new to SUN, but new to blogging as well. I was so relieved to read that I am not the only one who felt kinda lost out there in cyberspace! The technical aspect is such a pain for me, as I almost kind of understand how it works but seem to mess things up a lot! My personal blog seems to work just dandy, but the business one is another story. I will perservere, however, and take some of the advice I see here.
Andrew and JP, thanks for your information, it will be very helpful for me and many others I`m sure.
