This forum is a ghost town. Your post was the first to show up in my email in well over a year. I wish it was more active because I have only one person to talk blogging with, and I wish I had more.
Best thing to do is to put a Google+ and a +1 link on your blog so that people can subscribe to you. Also, find groups there dedicated to blogging, and whatever your topic is. Don't get discouraged! I started my blog because I had a lot to say, and it felt good to type it out. However, most bloggers only want people to read THEIR blog, but don't want to read anyone else's. Just keep at it, and you will find a following AND a direction.
Now, my blog is mainly music/ entertainment related. I took down all the off topic posts, and moved them somewhere else. I left posts about sports, cooking, movies, and social commentary, but its mainly music review. Plus, the blog has had at least 20 facelifts. It looks absolutely nothing like it did when I started it, and I've even changed the URL 3 times lol But, as a result of finding my direction, I am becoming a somewhat known music critic. I get about 3 or 4 albums submitted to me a month for review. I also now write for a major review site too. My goal is to have my writing be able to pay the bills.
Follow my blog, and if you have any questions, just ask. Its fun, but it can be frustrating if you let it. One thing I learned is that you will be lucky to receive one comment for every 200 views. lol But, people do read them even if they don't comment.
Wow thank you so much for the advice. :)
