Every blogger wants an audience. I mean, that’s why we blog. But to get an audience and to grow an audience a blogger must satisfy the needs of his or her audience.
Let’s use the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette as an example of what I mean.
Bloggers and short story writers make up the core audience of this online magazine. The Old Soldier has ten years of blogging experience and an MFA in writing fiction. I try to use this experience and this formal education to give my audience useful, practical advice on how to build a better blog and on how to write flash fiction. I even publish other flash fiction writers (and writers of non-fiction and of poetry) and I pay them. I’m in the business of publishing an online magazine. And the audience for this magazine continues to grow.
See what I mean?
So, if you want to build a better blog you must understand the needs of your audience. Then you must meet those needs.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of serious writing and brazen sexuality. It is also a paying market.
