I’m so excited to be a part of Fashion Beauty Friend Friday, created by ModlyChic, and below is my very first post with the group. We’re to answer questions regarding connecting with our readers and it’s importance.
How important do you think reader connectedness is to the success of your blog?
Reader connectedness is extremely important to my blog’s success. Having regular reader base would help keep my posts interesting and cohesive as well as give me more ideas for content. When I’m able to relate to my readers, I would want to write more posts that we’re mutually interested in.
What do you do to draw readers in and create that writer-reader bond?
I try my best to write interesting posts as well as include lots of photos to ensure my blog’s content keeps my readers entertained. I’m very active with responding to comments so I think that definitely helps create more of a bond. I also frequently visit my readers’ blogs, if they have one, and will comment on their posts as well.
What is one way you could improve this connection?
Oh, I could think of dozens! Being a new blogger, improving my reader connection is my main concern right now. I think I should definitely start asking questions of my readers to get them involved with my posts and be more interactive.
Is there a blogger you think does a great job creating that writer-reader bond? Why?
I would definitely say Zarna’s Runway – she writes frequently, responds to comments, she’s visited my blog a few times and has been so sweet with her comments, and her content is amazing; vivid photos and great writing!
What do you do to cultivate new readers? How do you get them to your site in the first place?
Since I recently started my blog; I’ve relied heavily on twitter as well as frequently visiting blogs with similar styles/content and being active with commenting on fellow bloggers posts. I’m also active on LookBook.nu & Chictopia which definitely helps bring readers to my blog.

Welcome to your first Friend Friday!! Thanks for participating. It’s great that building that writer-reader connection is a top priority for you. It might be helpful to come up with a proactive list of how to do that. – KatyDecember 10, 2010 at 7:09 am
Thanks Katy! I think that’s a great idea. Maybe I could compile the list and include it with my New Years resolution…December 10, 2010 at 7:30 am
