1. Introduce your Friends to Your Readers
It’s often the personal side that people really love about reading a blog, and what better way for someone to get to know you then to get to know your friends? Why not create a really short profile of each of your friends (if they’re willing!) and tell your readers a little about your community outside of the blogging world.
2. Interview Someone Outside of the Blogging World
When you’re constantly surrounded by other bloggers on social media, blogging forums and blogger events, it can be hard to remember that there is actually a readership to focus on outside of blogging! Interviewing other bloggers is great, and it’s something I’d recommend you all do; however it’s definitely worth contacting people outside of the blogging world to interview as well! Get together a list of a few prominent figures in your niche, and email them to tell them a little about your blog and ask them if they’d mind answering a few questions. Featuring experts in your field will give some weight to your blog, as well as opening you up to a potential new audience.
3. Write a Post About all the Mistakes You’ve Made as a Blogger!
This is way less daunting than it sounds. Most of us will have made the exact same mistakes during our time as bloggers, so talking about your errors and how you overcame them is a brilliant way to create a post you know others will be able to relate to.
4. Create a Timeline of Your Blogging Career
This is a fun one for your readers- but also for you! Make this really visual, sourcing loads of old pictures from your blog- and if you can find any really old tweets/statuses and use those too! Use this to tell a story to your followers about your blog.
