I also moved my "follow" gadget up to the top so that it's one of the first things people see when they get on my page. I tried to change the wording at the top to sound more inviting. Also, the more blogs you follow, the more they will follow you. Other than that, it just takes time.
I started by creating a weekly source of timely information and creating a weekly subscriber newsletter from the content. It grew from there. It is a slow process to build a subscriber base that is truly engaged. The very best thing you can do is buy a book about PR and Marketing and apply the principles to your blogging business.
It is much like any relationship and builds over time, it doesn't happen over night.. I wouldn't worry so much about the #'s those will come naturally. If you follow a blog many will follow back. When you find a blog you like return often and leave comments, comments are like hugs! Join the follow club as Jennifer said.
