Comment on other blogs to increase interest in yours. Keep a folder in Google Reader for your competition and check it daily. Check out others' blogs regularly, and when you have something to add to the conversation, leave a comment.
Blog regularly. A common, and critical mistake that bloggers make is not providing updates often enough. Readers will become bored quickly if the articles aren't updated on a regular basis. A great idea is to make a new blog update weekly and update your readers by email.
As you develop your blog, think about buying a domain name of your own instead of utilizing free sites. You will increase the professional appearance of your blog for the small fee. Doing this will also make your URL easier for visitors to remember, particularly if your business or website's name is the URL.

Post content about a unique experience or hobby. Give intimate details of the way something is made. Ideally, you should provide readers with a good reason to click through to your blog, instead of your competition, when they're looking for certain kinds of information.
