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.
Share your personal experiences on your blog occasionally. It makes your posts more real and helps your readers connect with you.
Always give credit especially for borrowed copy and photographs.
