Invite real life and online friends to read your blog. If your blog centers around a specific topic such as food, pets, home, books or politics, invite friends who will buzz about your chosen topic. Or, if your blog is about a specific demographic — such as Generation Y, GenXers or Baby Boomers — invite friends from that demographic. Some services advertise that they’ll get a large number of followers for your blog, but this service comes with a price tag. And, they do not target followers by specific interests.
