I created a blog that provides all information on classified submission about two months ago.
currently, I only have six members on my blog.
I want at least fifty members per month. I already shared the link on Facebook and Twitter.
Please tell me what else I should do to get more members on my blog.
The best way to get people on board is connecting from social networks like facebook, twitter, bebo, stumbleupon, friendster, myspace and many other that you can create accounts and share. The more members you can interact with the better possibility of getting new member in your blog. The content of your blog also has to be very useful and creative.
One of the best methods of gaining users is to offer something that they can only get by participating, make it something good because there are so many people out there giving away stuff, trying to get an email address, in order to get your brand out in front, you need to identify what they want and give it to them.
That is just a stepping stone, what you really want is an environment where they can become your clients, now that is where the real money is at.

I joined Daniweb about 8 months ago I, think. I m 63 years old and I have senior moments. That's not important. I am into blogging for the long haul and I am sure there are many newbies out there just starting out and in need of help. Blogging doesn't take place over night, It takes a lot of work to create it, depending on which way you want to go with it. You can start a blog for free which you do not own or you can pay for a self hosted blog which you own. I own mine. To get people to my blog I join blog commenting groups where I make a comment and leave a link behind so the will visit mine. I have a sign up form in my sidebar which gives away a free blogging book and people sign up for it. Blogging can be a fun thing to do, it gets easier as time goes by. I want to create my own blogging community one day and that will take a lot of time. The big thing people are using today is Social media and that in itself takes a lot of learning and time. If I'm allowed I'll do another post on that.
