I've made sure I always do one post a week on the same day. Also have yoast installed and make sure posts are at least 800 words. I've found twitter is good for engaging people but I started with nothing and it has taken me this long to edge up to 150 followers (ish) so building this has been quite painful. Definitely a slow burn but keep going!I started in January too I only get about 300 page views a month, so I need to work out how to build that up a bit! I've just recently started doing a lot more on twitter and seem to get a few new followers a day, so fingers crossed.
This blogging thing is a massive learning curve!
