How To Build A Famous Blog
1. Blog Commenting
I always love to say this, commenting on other related blog in your niche is one of the best ways of getting your blog to new readers and subscriber who are also in your niche. When I talk about comments, I mean leaving useful comments that can add or contribute a valid point to the host blog post in question. Other readers would love to know more about you, and they’ll click through your blog link to see your blog. Comments also grabs the attention of the blog owner you commented on. They also will in turn check out your blog. One thing to note is, the more the comments, the more popular your blog becomes.
2. Guest Blogging
This point can never be overemphasized. I must confess I’ve not been doing this lately, but I really went a long way in building our reputation in the early days. The few guest posts I have written on other popular blogs, turned in a great number of fresh readership to my blog, and in turn increased my blog’s popularity. Guest posts go a long way in promoting your blog. You can start out by writing a guest post for us.

With the increase in the usage of the social networks, you too can gain a lot of readers using the social networks to promote your blog posts. Build up your Twitter followers, Facebook Fanpage likes and other related social network profiles. Try to follow authority blogs on social networks, retweet or share their updates, they will take note of you, and who knows, they might even end up linking up to you or also Sharing/Retweeting your updates also. Social Media works a great deal in making a blog become popular.

Evergreen tips dear Oscar 😉
Guest blogging and commenting seem to work really well.
Using each free approach requires patience but the wait is well worth it; hey, you gain the trust of your target audience, right?
I’m already following these methods and experiencing good results. It’s important to connect with other fellow bloggers and build the network reach. Also, blogging requires a lot patience. You and your blog won’t be famous overnight. Correct?
Hey Oscar well written points to make our blog popular but i’m familiar with 2 steps joining communities and commenting on blogs this makes me to engage with others to bring attention of my blog
They are the honest tips for any blog to be popular. Building Community is very important for long term success. Make a list, build your own community and join existing and useful community.
Blog commenting, guest posting and using social media are some of the good method to build your community successfully.
