The more you share your posts on social media & the more you engage & entertain your readers, the quicker your readership will grow.
Courtesy costs nothing. Be polite when interacting with fellow bloggers and your readers and your courtesy will be visible in your writing.
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.
