Write for Google and no one follows, Write for People and Google follows.
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.
A new blog should not add to the existing noise the blogosphere. Do something outstanding to get noticed.
