I've read so many posts about how to increase readership, or increase page views for your blog/article, and the majority of these advices were to join a forum for your special niche!
I did just that, join a forum, join social bookmarking sites, and join blog directories! After all, what is the purpose of writing my blog, or sharing life experiences without readers? There are so many forums out there, from computer related issues, to virus, to music, to UK broadband, and anything under the sky.
Surprisingly to me that there is a forum for broadband, where people talk about AOL broadband, T-Mobile broadband, Virgin Media broadband, and many other broadband service providers. Though UK broadband, well, based in the UK, I found it interesting to know all the names of their service providers there.
Before joining any forums, keep in mind that it is very time consuming too! To get a couple reads for your site, you have to be active, and be part of that community. After a few weeks of making my present known, I realized that I have less time to do what I love, and that is to write or go out to take pictures.
I'm not saying that forums are not worth knowing. It is in fact, a very helpful resourceful place if you are looking for a certain information, or if you just want to share ideas.
