This article is absolutely correct. If you don’t give, you won’t get. That’s a rule of life.
In order to get more readers and followers you must genuinely connect. The one fact I find ironic about some bloggers is they want others to do for them what they do not want to do for others. Do you think people are just going to miraculously start following your page? I receive numerous emails asking me about getting more readers, but the person asking does nothing to socialize online. They do not read other pages. They do not comment on other pages. They do not interact via social media. Nothing.
If you give nothing, you get nothing.
