Blogs Promotion Efforts – Avoid Mismatched Expectations

Blogs are the easiest publishing platform on the Internet and the fastest way to potentially reach millions of other people across continents and time zones. However blogs fail ordinary users most of the time, mainly because of the sheer number of blogs out there, the competition and lack of promotional understanding keeps the simple blogger with low traffic and little exposure.

The spread of the Internet in the world made thinkers and philosophers around the globe believe that the human race is entering a period in which swift communication will lead to better understanding and increased cooperation between people, cultures and nations, the invention of blogs inspired millions to open their own web pages and share their thoughts and dreams with anyone who wished to read their blog.

However it did not take long for consistent and talented bloggers to understand that without the real knowledge of Internet marketing and promotion processes, as well as the basics of search engine optimization, the chances that a wide audience will ever visit their blog is minimal, and that in order to have the break though moment they will need tremendous luck by having some major news item appear on their blogs, thoughts are simply not enough.

The initial promise of a fast Internet template that anyone could use to reach thousands of people did not deliver, and as the world got used to blogs and Internet publishing those blogs started appearing on the news, only they got to the news because of a directly related story, in most cases involving the blog writers. It is still unknown what was the effect of those writers expectations of their blog, the frustration that got bigger as intimate thoughts were published only to have no one read and relate to them.

There is one thing that could help out bloggers make a bigger splash in the blogs community and that is some understanding in Internet promoting, using some simple tools and processes a blog can create a small but quality following, keeping a dialog with those few quality members will eventually spread out to other users on social networks, slowly growing the reach of the blogger and its themed blog.
