How I Got 1000 Followers In Two Months (And How You Can Too)

I was so excited to realize that I had recently reached 6000 WordPress followers which meant I had gained a little over 1000 followers in 2 months. This is the most followers I have gained in two months and I thought I would share some ways in which you can get more followers on your blog too- if you’re interested in gaining followers- if not don’t worry there are lots more posts on this blog with different topics you can check out. Hope these tips help!

Be very active– Blogging is a two way street. You can not expect people to like, follow or share you’re posts if you never do the same. I mean you don’t have to like every post every follower of yours puts out but at least make an effort to reply to comments and read and like some of the posts on your reader from the blogs you follow.

Be genuine– Your followers will be able to tell if you’re genuinely interested in something or are faking it for views and they will always enjoy the posts you are genuine in much more. Try to be genuine and write about things you are truly passionate about.

Edit well– Grammar mistakes and typos are a normal part of writing and it happens to everyone but when your posts have multiple grammar mistakes and a lot of typos it gets hard for the reader to read and breaks your flow. It also makes your blog look less professional and people are less likely to follow it. To get more followers try to take some time to edit your posts so that the reader gets the best experience possible and is way more likely to follow.

Use the right tags– Don’t overdo it with the tags but don’t stop using tags completely either. I would say about 5-10 is the right amount of tags to get more traffic to your blog which means more followers. Another thing is don’t lie in your tags- like for example don’t tag it ‘food’ if the post has nothing to do with food. It’s very annoying when people do that and it only makes people dislike you for lying.

Be organised– In my opinion, this is probably the most important one. Try to be organised and punctual with your posting. If you post randomly whenever you feel like you won’t get the optimum views and follows plus your followers will be confused and won’t know when to check your blog for new posts. After posting more regularly on a daily basis I have seen a huge difference in both my followers and views.

    Thanks for your tips. Although I think sometimes, that I’m just writing for myself so who needs followers, and then I think geeze I’d really like it for someone else to engage in my post and give feedback on something I took the time to write about. I have made over 100 blogs over 6 years and only have 15 followers. I think I’d like to gain followers now lol. Cheers

      Lol I think we all feel that way at times. Like it’s nice to have followers and engagement but at the same time your main goal should be to write without caring too much about your following.

    Another great post. Since my blog focuses on photography, cooking and laughter, I need to find a way to keep a well-balanced flow so as to not alienate any of my followers. I’d like to have different pages with dedicated topics, but since I’m building my “fan base” I’ll keep with one.

    I’m between jobs right now, so I have to stick with a free site, but I’ve got my eye on the premium package so make things easier. I see that you mentioned “daily” posts. I’m sure I could crank them out with that frequency, but I personally want to reserve the good stuff for when I have amassed a decent following. I’d hate to post something phenomenal now when there’s a potential to be at 3 or 4 thousand by this time next year. On the flipside, I’m not going to post cheap articles either. I want my audience to respect me and desire to read more. I’ll try to maintain 1-2/week, for now.

    My FB group is loyal because they’re mostly family, friends and co-workers. I need to be ready to bring in the rest of the world, which is why I switched to WordPress.

    Thank you again! Enjoying your work!

    Reblogged this on ENTowner Build a Legacy, Inc. and commented:
    Seasons Greetings!

    I finally found some downtime, well, kinda sorta. I’m working fulltime (gotta pay the bills), podcasting (really enjoy doing this and hope it continues to grow), blogging (when I can and love sharing information), and now helping my daughter with her music career! When I look over what I’ve just typed, I guess you could say “how in the world is she doing all this successfully?!” It’s not easy and full of challenges, but when you love being a creative, you will find a way, right?!

    So, I was reading through some of the blogs I follow and found PoojaG’s blog on “How I Got 1000 Followers In Two Months (And How You Can Too)”, and thought I’d share because I too am trying to make it to 1k or more followers!

    Well, I hope you find this post informative and entertaining as I have. Enjoy!

    Wishing you peace, love, health and prosperity,
