Here are three tips to help new blog owners:
Advertising: advertise your blog everywhere! Banners, signatures, threads on every kind of forum will generate more traffic and backlinks for your forum. People may like your blog and start visiting it regularly.
Interesting content: always make posts with content that will interest most of your readers (depends on blog genre). Never copy and paste posts or news from other blogs/sites, you can get ideas from other places but you must rewrite it. Adding images won't hurt and will make it much more interesting to read.
Small posts: try to make small but informative posts. If you really need to make a big text add some pictures between paragraphs to make it less boring. No one likes to read a big and plain text.
Thanks for reading.
