Stay simple and be original, have patience and perseverance and connect with other bloggers to grow as a blogger!
Keep your posts simple! Do not try to impress anyone. be yourself! Visit other blogs which might interest you, take part in conversations or simply put your two cents for others to read and follow you back to your blog.
Guest post, guest post, guest post. I write guest articles for other blogs and also invite bloggers to contribute towards my blog. In this way network is built. Both the blogs get famous.
