Hi, makers! I started to make a weekly series on Medium (a new issue came out today https://medium.com/aaply-stories...) and I want to ask the PH community for advice. How do I promote my blog (preferably for free πŸ˜‚)?

Everything already mentioned - but be careful of being spammy, especially on Reddit as those mods are very keen! I'd also spend some time trying to understand the SEO space in your market. I've had great success in the past focusing on longtail keywords and writing blog posts specifically to serve them. @roberto_robles might have some more SEO tips too!

It's not Medium, but I used to work on a blog in Korea. I personally think that there are various ways but the best and hardest thing to do is keeping on making sincere contents and uploading them. I find it takes quite effort to keep making good quality contents and uploading them regularly :)

Hello Sofya, writing an article on other blogs from your industry is also a great way to increase your visibility/credibility. But it requires approval from the other person, which is quite hard to obtain!

Most of all, the packaging of the account plays a role, then advertising.

You may build backlinks on high domain rating (DR) websites, but not to be spammy. Focus on long-tail keywords in your blog, it's easier to hit rather than the popular ones.
