How can bloggers get more likes and comments?

If no one LIKES a post or COMMENTS on it the author may reasonably assume the post is of no, or little, value.

Then we need to reconsider what we are writing. Posts that fall on deaf ears may need to be trashed or re-written otherwise they are just redundant clutter.

Readers are lazy so by the time a blog has accumulated 250+ posts, even if many are still good and relevant, they will be buried deep under the latest posts and will seldom, if ever, be read again.

If you are new or relatively new to blogging, having to learn the ins and outs of how WordPress works, managing the blog itself, the technical aspects plus integrating social media and fielding the myriad emails that fly in all day and every day, you will appreciate how undeniably daunting it is. I learned in a short time to respect all the part-time bloggers who have full-time jobs. If you are one, honestly, I really admire you. How do you do it? I still feel like I am back at college reading for a degree. Having said all that it is one of the most exciting, challenging and invigorating projects I have ever undertaken.
