The goal for almost every bloggers is to build an amazing community. Having other people interacting with your posts and having them continuously returning to your blog. This typically isn’t the case when you first start out blogging. Followers slowly build with each post and accumulate over time.
The key is in those early days of blogging is to not count followers. A task that is easier said than done. Followers are not the only metric of running a successful blog. Sure you might have 100 or 200 followers. But are those followers constantly interacting with your blog? Not every follower is going to be active with every post you have. But you should have a few loyal followers that are always up to date on your newest posts.
These are the followers that you should pay attention to. Because they have fallen in love with your blog. If you don’t currently have any of these types of followers, you will get them. All good things take time.
Whether you have 10 followers or 1,000, don’t count followers. You will only be disappointed with the numbers, no matter how high they might be. Instead focus on your writing and the essence of the content you post. Writing blog posts that others will fall in love with. That should be your priority when blogging. If you continue to produce great content then the followers will eventually come.
