I have seen blogs that have grammatical errors that you could drive a truck through but the bloggers are still growing their brand and making money. Sometimes, grammar takes a back seat especially when the information in the post is that good. Good List!

Hey Theresa! Those are very nice tips and I always believe in the content! Unless we produce great content, we cannot expect traffic and so do leads.

Thanks for sharing!

Most businesses are too scared of asking their blog readers to sign up whenever they can. Start placing the sign up box wherever you can (after a blog post, on top of the sidebar, before the content or if you want to try the extreme, an unblockable popup). Some of these may hurt usability but they helped to increased the number of subscribers for many blogs so do try it out and you might be surprised by the results.
