Image speak - A lot of bloggers tend to ignore this, but the images on your blog speak a lot for what you write. Use good quality images and make sure they express your written stuff in utmost simplicity yet precision.
Add your personality - If you are writing on a particular topic, there are a number of people who will be writing on the same topic. So you need to add that specialty to your blog to make it look different and to allow your readers to take away something that the others are not offering.
Blog Title: The shorter your blog title the better it is. Include keywords in your blog title and keep the mystery alive while you hint your message.
