Starting a blog sounded like a lot of fun when I started and it really is. To have a good blog you have to put lots of time into it. So after putting in a ton of time you think that people are magically going to find your blog and like it but that's not how it works (I thought it was). To get people to notice you on the big world wide web you must advertise.
How? Well go to another blog similar to yours (a doll blog in my case). Next comment on it. Here is an example:
Wow! Your dolls are so pretty and you take amazing photos!
After that, others who are commenting will see your blog address and check it out. After doing that to at least 10 blogs (I did it for over 20 blogs) you will get a couple of followers (hopefully). If that doesn't work go on to a blog that has a page for Favorite blogs and tell people to check out your blog. Last if that doesn't work comment on my blog and I will advertise it on the Monthly Blog List.
Next is to take good pictures. If your pictures are good it really helps. The blog with the best doll photos in my opinion has to be Doll Delight by The Spicys. Make sure to have good lighting, sun light is the best. Don't use the flash unless you really need it. It brings out shine marks and dirt on your doll. Use a variety of shots, the same angle makes your photos boring and non-original.
The next step is to post often. As you know I am a very busy person and post as often as I can. When I have time on the weekends I plan posts for the week and use the Schedule setting in blogger to have them posted on different days. And while I am away doing silly amounts of homework I am always coming up with plans for each week and fun posts.
The last step is to have a colorful and bright blog. If your background is brown and you have a boring text font no one will want to read your blog. And change it up every so often. I like to change my header every month or so. And around the dollidays I like to change it up and make it different.
I really hop this helps if you have questions comment.
