An interesting post – I’m reading a lot of these at the moment trying to get my head round blogging! I have a question for you, I’m doing as you say with the social media networks (facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) and generating an okay amount of traffic (or at least okay so far as I’m concerned!) but all of my visitors seem to just be my friends, followers or connections. Do you have any advice as to how to reach people outside of my networks? I’ve read about ‘guest blogging’ but confused by that…
Thanking you, have a great weekend.

I wouldn’t minimize the importance of your friends, followers and connections – you definitely want them to keep visiting your blog! After all, they’re the people who are most likely to share your content with their own networks, which will extend your visibility and hopefully attract new readers for you.
Guest blogging is certainly another way to attract new readers. First I would start by finding the blogs that have a similar audience and purpose to yours, and then build relationships with those bloggers on social media and/or by commenting on their posts.
All the best,
