Always let the picture do the talking! As a picture speaks a 1000 words.
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.
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.
