Hi this is wendy from http://my2preciousboys.blogspot.com . Don't get discourage it all takes time. I being blogging for a month too and I am putting myself outhere. I participate in the forums I leave comments in other blogs. I bearly have 15 followers. I am trying little by little it would come to you. Just promote yourself.
I agree with what some others have said: focus on doing it because you love it and for the exercise of writing and documenting your life. The rest will follow.
A lot has to do with the content and the relevance to the readers. As a new blog myself, I feel a lot has to do with the appearance of your blog, which I can see you haven't been blogging in a while, but don't lose confidence! If the layout is something that frustrates you, then I can help you with that. =) No problem! Things look a little scattered on your page, so you could definitely work on that. Furthermore, there are blog hops on bigger blogs to get your name out there.
If you have any other questions, feel free to check me out at olearyva.blogspot.com (my fun, crafty, foody, family friendly blog) or visit my other blog at kristinsgreenerlife.blogspot.com (a weight loss blog I just started).
I hope you can still be encouraged to blog through it all, because your content and the food pictures on your blog look soooo yummy!

I don't think it's that hard. I had followers very soon and media as well. I think it just takes a few tools that's all. Social media is a huge help. But just asking people to follow doesn't really work after 10 or so blogs are you really reading those? Probably not. So building a following is better then asking for followers ;)
Once you discover your voice then the people who love that voice will flock to you- but it doesn't have to take forever.
Also set up a newsletter. Those are people who want to hear what you have to say. I'm honored to have the followers that I do.
I completely understand! Mine is the same. I think it may just take awhile. I'm staying optimistic, and I believe that your numbers will increase soon. I will check out your page. I love reading blogs. Please check out mine also. Thanks!
I checked out your blog. It is a great blog. I am sure the you will get more people over time.
I only have one follower. I'm coming back to MBC so I can get some advice for improving my networking/PR.
I'm new to blogging, too. I started less than a month ago. I don't know that I'd want to follow a bunch of blogs I never read or have them do the same, but it's nice to find blogs I enjoy, then leave comments and follow them. I didn't start off doing that to get followers, but it has worked out that way. I'm a bit confused by the numbers from my different following sources, but I think it's just past 50 in the last couple days. I'm interested in all of the tips here, and going to try some out! :)
