Planning your blogging should always be something you think about. What am I going to post in over the next week or two? How does each post fit into the bigger picture of what I am trying to achieve on my blog? What can I do to get closer to my goals of global domination?

This is the next to last day of 31DBBB on Anomalous Material! We are finally in the final stretch of this project and I would like to thank all of you who participated. I hope you got something out of this which will help you continue to improve as a blogger.
Many bloggers spend more time building their readership and profile on other websites than they spend creating content on their own blog. It could be related blogs, forums, social medias like Twitter and Facebook…
Asking your readers questions is one of the keys to build a readership and maybe even a community on your blog. Have you noticed that you are much more likely to leave a comment on a blog or website when the author asks you a question?
Have you ever picked up a magazine and wondered how much work goes into making it? Have you noticed that when you come near a magazine display, there is a strong attention-pulling effect? Wouldn’t it be neat if your blog was the same way?
Do you feel like you have passive readers? Would you like to have a more active and interactive audience? More than likely, the vast majority of your visitors are passive. They do not leave comments, vote on polls or subscribe to your RSS Feed. Have you thought about why? Maybe it’s because you rarely or never ask them to!
Today, we are going to spend a little time breathing life back into an older post. More than likely, there is some post that aren’t up-to-par with what you would expect from yourself in terms of quality. Maybe, that old post was rushed to publication, or you know more today about the topic than you did when you wrote it.
If I had one advice for any new or struggling blogger, it would be to participate in the greater community and regularly leave comments on as many blogs related to your niche as possible. This is exactly how I built up Anomalous Material and this is how you want to approach the game if you want to gain some type of readership early on.
Some of the most popular blogs are those that belong to people that express their opinion loudly and often. Those blogs tend to generate more discussion, reader participation and excitement. Your task today will be to write a post that expresses an opinion.
