Avoid using SMS abbreviations in blog post and at least run the post through a spell-check in MS-Word before publishing. If the bloggers cannot take the time out to write proper English, why would the readers bother reading through that cryptic puzzle?
Acknowledge and appreciate your readers, especially regular readers by replying to comments and visiting their blogs.
Write regularly, neither too often nor too rarely. Two to three blogs a week is a good frequency to maintain.
