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.
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.
DIY videos: For DIY blogs, apart from the text based posts, videos are a better way to send out the message to your followers as it improves the understanding real time.
