Ask your readers

In Brazil we have a saying that goes like this: “Baby that doesn’t cry doesn’t get milk”. This principle can be applied to blogging, meaning that if you want your readers to do something you need to ask them to.

Do you want to increase your number of RSS subscribers? Consider asking your readers to subscriber to your feed, and even instruct the ones that are not familiar with RSS so that they too will be able to subscribe.

Do you want some feedback regarding your new theme? Suggestions for blog posts? Once again, ask your readers. Sometimes we hesitate to call the readers to action, thinking that it might disturb them. As long as you are providing value and useful information on a consistent basis, however, people will be more than happy to help you out.
