Don't just type, talk to your audience. Blogging is way big a market on internet and people will like you if you do more than just providing information. Suggest, express, appreciate, criticize and have an opinion to build a relativity to a like minded audience. Make them feel that their visit to your blog matters to you.
Grow your Blog Organically. Don't force/ask anyone to share, follow or comment on blog. Just focus on promotion.
Always let the picture do the talking! As a picture speaks a 1000 words.
