Day 23: Call Your Readers To Action

Today’s task has us write a post in which we ask our readers to do more than just be passive participants in our blogs. By getting readers to do things like comment, participate in a poll, buy a recommended product or visit another site, we are creating a more interactive experience that will hopefully encourage people to come back.

ProBlogger recommends reading 12 Tips To SNAP Readers Out Of Passivity to gain more insight into calling readers into action.

Questions:

1. Have you written a post in the past that has encouraged readers to do something other than just comment on your blog?

2. How has this task changed the way you look at making your blog more interactive?

Update: *I’d like to thank the lovely ladies of SITS whose site hosted our Problogger Winter 31 Day Challenge. At the completion of our challenge we had 34 posts on this day’s task on the SITS site’s forum.

If you are just joining us “welcome” and feel free to answer the questions here and leave a link to your post if you wrote one and we can keep the party going!
