Another thing that is recommended to increase followers is social media. I don’t have Facebook or Instagram. But I do have Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest. They are linked to my WordPress account so all my posts get shared there automatically.
When I was running my business, word- of- mouth was how I got my clients. I also went businesses networking. Meeting people face- to- face and doing voluntary jobs got me clients. As a single mum, I wanted to make effective use of my time. So when I met someone I would let them know about my business. I didn’t let shyness stop me. I would ask them if they could make use of my services. Some said ‘yes’ some said ‘no’.
I wasn’t shy, but I was authentic.
It is the same with social media. Building an authentic relationship with people will help you reduce the amount of hours you spend on social media.
You are not going to become viral in one article. It takes dedication, patience and authenticity.
With so many people blogging nowadays and so much amazing content out there, how can a new blogger on WordPress get followers?
I’m still learning and I would like to get more followers, but how? I like to write my own thoughts. Original content is important to me. From my recent research on blogging it seems you need to post regularly at first in order to besuccessful. This worried me because I didn’t want my followers to be overwhelmed by my blogs in their inbox.
I thought about the problem and decided that the way forward was to post short content and publish it twice a week.
That way my followers were not snowed-under, and it gave me time to think about my blogs. A win-win situation. So, if you are new to blogging you might like to consider that.
The second piece of advice which I think is worthwhile is use your own images and photos. WordPress does have some free-to-use images,
and I have used them occasionally, but I think it is far more interesting for your followers if you use your own. That way your followers are tasting something of your life and experiences.
And then you have to decide the title of your post. This is a difficult one. You don’t have to decide straight away. Read through your post and think what title would reach out to me if this was some one else’s blog?The answer will come to you. My answer usually comes when I have left the article for a while.

I love ponytails, especially in the summer months when I really don’t want to be wearing wigs all day long. ( I wear wigs in the winter and ponytails during the summer. For me it makes perfect sense.) Ponytails are practical and make a fashion statement that you are stunning even when you are wearing baggy clothes. My Afro hair is short so I have different lengths of ponytail extensions. You can get them through the links below.
I think every woman knows how to do a basic ponytail, but if you need something extra here are some tips:
1. Comb your hair (if it is Afro hair you will need to moisturise it. ) Put a hair band around your wrist. Pull your hair with one hand and with the other tie the hair together.
2. If you want to use hair gel use it now to prevent runaway hairs.
3. Take your ponytail hair extension and clip it or wrap it around your own ponytail and you are ready to go.
