The great thing about a blog is that it is interactive, so people who enjoy what you have written will be able to leave a comment on the topic and when they do this be sure to pay attention to what they have to say.

Look for any questions in these comments as they are a great way to get topics to write about. Make sure that before you post any information on your blog that you have researched the subject thoroughly especially if you want to appear as an expert in that niche. The more you know the better your likelihood of people accepting you as an expert and there are many people out there who have good knowledge so don’t think that you are only answering to people who are not clued up on the subject.

2. Be Available for your Readers

Spend some time making yourself available to your visitors. Keep your profile up to date and include email instructions so that any questions your followers may have they can email you. By making yourself available to your readers not only will they feel happier because now they know that you are a real person, but this is your opportunity to start building a community of like minded people who will most probably end up as your customers.
