    Thanks for this write. Your points are quite great for making your blog stand out.
    I also feel you should be willing to render free services to help fellow bloggers and your readers. Having such on your blog would keep bringing your readers back.

    One other thing is to make your readers/fellow bloggers important by giving them an opportunity to be heard. This could be done by allowing them to guest post, be interviewed or be featured as user of the week, etc

  4. Thanks for the awesome article, Content and presentation is the most effective way to make our blog stand out in my opinion.

  5. Connection with other bloggers, guest writers are much important in this regards, because it border the scope and build relation with other bloggers to get benefits.

  6. michael says:

    great post, problem is that most people do not interact once someone leaves a comment which then in turn makes the person not care what someone does and then you lose out on a potential customer and relationship with that person, Best thing to do is always stay in touch and build your presence.

  7. Very clear , neat and easy to do points here,
    simple and direct, :)

    apart from building relationships with other blogs and connecting (which is by far the most important step for building a reputation for your blog )
    i believe the most important second step is working on a creative way to deliver your message,
    for example, i started following a blog lately that uses podcasts as it’s main way of appealing to it’s readers, which i felt it was a brilliant idea,
    i was able to listen and learn new information while checking my emails, and other notifications, saving time and it is more fun to learn and stay up to date.
    I’m not saying people should copy this, but it is best if you a have your own unique identity and a unique delivery system , don’t you think !?
    Regards.
