If the answer to this question is yes, then you are in the right place as we will be looking at ten ways bloggers can spice up your online presence.
Participate In Online Forums

Leave Your Comfort Zone
It it not enough to focus all your attention on your blog niche. Make a list of things you need and want to try – you can learn something new by exploring other areas.
Try Other Platforms
Not everyone is tech savvy. If your blogging platform is difficult to comprehend, do not hesitate to give others a try. Apart from WordPress, other blogging platforms include Blogger and Tumblr.
There are many e-books that can teach you useful tips and tricks to use in your blogging endeavour and not all of them cost money.
Network on Social Sites
The importance of networking cannot be over-emphasised in blogging. Social-networking sites such as Facebook offer ample opportunity to network with other bloggers for example, NetworkedBlogs on Facebook.
Subscribe to RSS Feeds
Whilst it’s difficult to keep up to date with your favourite blogs. By subscribing to an rss feed by a reader or email makes it a lot easier to choose interesting articles to read.
With Twitter you can get a lot of followers who are interested in what you do. Another advantage of using twitter is convenience i.e. the fact that you can tweet on the move with mobile gadgets such as smart-phones and tablet computers.
By thinking out of the box you can push routines to one side and try to do things in a new and different way until you find the most comfortable position for your online activity.
Don’t just visit other blogs. Learn to write and leave meaningful contributions in the form of comments on sites that you visit. By doing so you can make a name for yourself in your chosen niche.
There is no doubt that technology makes things simpler and you have to take advantage of this fact. You are no longer limited by location or timing and so do not have to always blog from a desktop PC or directly from your blogging platform. Be smart, explore other simple and fast ways of posting articles, videos, games or music directly to your Website.
