  4. Just got around to reading your blog and agree with everything you say. I've been blogging since early November on two blogs I created and have learned how important Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest are. I am now at a point where I am exploring other social media sites. One thing I post to Twitter 3 x daily (morning, late afternoon and late night due to different time zones and countries) l add that it is not enough to post your current blogs once. I post several times per day. I do the same with Facebook but only post once to groups that I belong to so as not to spam them with my posts. Thank you for posting this list. Susan

  27. Hey Zahaib,

    You can't go wrong with these tips! I've tried a lot of them and they do work. I think the two strategies that really have been going me more traffic are blog commenting and doing roundup posts. In July did one roundup post asking different bloggers to share their experiences as newbie bloggers and I got over 400 shares in two days which is great for me!

    Thanks for sharing these tips and I hope you're having a great week!
