Blogging, by it’s very nature, is a two way conversation. If you blog about your quilting or artwork (or anything!) and your readers leave comments, be sure to reply to their comments. You can reply via email, but the only person who will see the reply is the recipient. By replying directly on your blog, you’ll keep the conversation going and any answers you provide to questions in the comments will benefit everyone. Also, new visitors will know right away that yours is an active blog and they’ll be more likely to leave a comment if they can see that you’ll reply to them. Keeping the conversation going is a great way to grow your readership and make even more friends in cyberspace!
