Tip #1: Make Your Opinion Count One of the great things about sports blogging is that it involves opinions. If you're going to be sure your blog attracts some attention from a larger group of readers, make sure your opinion is a little different from the others that are out there online. If you're not sure, do a search in the area you'd like to focus on to see what others are blogging about. If sarcasm is your game, make use of it in your blog. Your readers love to laugh, and they'll appreciate being entertained while they read your take on this year's fantasy football predictions. Tip #2: Build a Community Any blogger will tell you that the key to building your readership is to engage them. It's not enough just to offer them some information on last night's hockey playoff game, or even to give them your opinion on who the Cowboys should draft this year. The truth is, your readers don't care as much about what you think as they do about whether or not you care about what they think. So, ask them questions in your blog. Get them talking. Make them want to comment on what you write. Be controversial if you want to be. Once you can get them talking and commenting, you'll find that they're eager to come back again and again. Tip #3: Stick with it. What happens with many bloggers is that they get excited about writing their blog posts, and they write a few really good ones. Then, they start tapering off because they don't get the amount of readers they thought they would. It can be discouraging, for sure, when you're not attracting the number of people you think you should. Even so, don't give up. Just like rock stars don't pick up a microphone and automatically get a record deal, great bloggers are created in time. The more you share your posts on social media, and the more you engage and entertain your readers, the quicker your readership will grow. However, it might take a while. Your patience will pay off, and it won't be long before you have a nice little following. Trust us.
