Building your blog is more than putting a colorful background and slapping a few words on the page.  A lot of time goes into building the best blog you can.  It is like a calling card, or business card, that you are putting  into cyberspace for everyone to see.  Therefore, you want to present the best image you can.

Content, both images and words, are vital to the success of your blog.  

Images are the potatoes and words are the meat.  You have to put down quality food.  It's also okay to change it up every now and then.  The main ingredients to the content should be something you are comfortable with.  People can tell if it is forced or not enthusiastic.  Let your passion show in what you do... no matter the subject.  This is what people want.  Everyone wants to connect on some level.  Otherwise, they won't visit your site.

While you can NOT please everyone, and you can't please your followers all the time... do it for yourself.  Eventually, by putting yourself out there, people will come.  There is enough diversity in the world to find someone out there to connect with.  We are all human and all have some basic similarities, no matter our background.

Also keep in mind that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.  They also have their good days and bad days.  Try to stay regular, don't be afraid to ask for assistance, and be yourself.  Well, a semi-professional you anyway. ;)

If you have struggles, allow at least some of that to come through sometimes.  It shows that you are human. We all struggle with something.  I'm not saying to type nothing but your misery, because as bad as it is... chances are there is at least ONE person out there that has it worse.  The things you can handle, others may not, and the other way around.
