Make Your Posts Shareable

Many free blog hosts have sharing options as a default setting.  By "sharing options" I mean quick buttons that allow readers to tweet or email or share your post on Facebook.  If your blog host doesn't have these automatically added as a default, make a point of doing so.  Usually these buttons can be added in your blog's layout settings.

Even if you don't use Twitter or Facebook, it is extremely important to make your blog shareable if you wish to generate more traffic.  Don't make your readers work more than they have to in order to share your blog with their friends.  

This type of word of mouth advertising is one of the most effective methods of spreading your blog around.  Again, we go back to how you would react to things.  Are you more likely to click on an ad link or a link your friend shared with you?
