6 daily tasks to grow your blog
October 15, 2018
In an ideal world, you’d be a professional blogger with lots of time on your hands to work on your blog and make it successful. Sound good?
Unfortunately, not many of us are that lucky and often we’re very limited with the amount of time we can spend working on our blogs between work, family, and general life.
If you don’t have as many hours as you’d like to dedicate to your blog, we’ve put together a list of 6 daily tasks that will help to grow your blog and don’t take too much time…
#1 Comment on other blogs
Spending time reading and commenting on other blogs is a great way to help grow your own blog.
Reading other blogger’s posts can give you lots of tips and inspiration for your own content, as well as the possibility of learning something new.
If you find a post that you enjoy, leave a comment to let the blogger know. It’s a nice way to support other bloggers and will also help to improve your own blog’s Domain Authority and SEO.

#2 Post in Facebook groups
Joining Facebook groups is a great way to grow your blog and get your content in front of a new audience.
There are lots of groups dedicated to blogging, as well as plenty for specific niches such as parenting, travel or beauty.
Each Facebook group will work a bit differently and they will make you aware of the rules when you join. Some groups will let you post any links to your blog posts directly to the group, others will do daily threads where you can link to your latest blog or a social media post and share a number of others in return.
Spend some time each day sharing your content with a few groups and reciprocating. Then check your stats to watch the pageviews come in.

#3 Share an old post on social media
Old blog posts need love too!
Schedule a couple of old blog posts to social media each week to keep people reading them. Maybe there’s something seasonal that you wrote last year that’s still relevant. Or an evergreen post that you haven’t shared in a while.
Don’t worry about sharing content again, you are bound to have new followers that haven’t seen it before.

#5 Reply to any blog and social media comments
If you’re anything like us, you’ll get notifications throughout the day whenever someone leaves a comment on your blog or social media posts. It’s not always convenient to reply if you’re at work or out and about but it’s important not to forget about them.
Spend some time each day replying to your comments. It’s polite to thank people for taking their time to read your posts and leave a comment, as well as encouraging them to do it more often!
#6 Finish a draft post
Come on be honest, how many draft blog posts have you got saved? If you have lots of half-written posts, you could get one finished today.
Open up your draft post, have a read and you might be inspired all over again to get it completed. Imagine if in less than an hour you could have another post written and scheduled for later in the week!
We hope these daily blogging tasks will help you to grow your blog, even if you don’t have a lot of time each day to spend on it.
