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.
People follow bloggers but for better blogging, bloggers should also follow them back.
Don't just type, talk to your audience. Blogging is way big a market on internet and people will like you if you do more than just providing information. Suggest, express, appreciate, criticize and have an opinion to build a relativity to a like minded audience. Make them feel that their visit to your blog matters to you.
