Keep learning how the blog works, and post on a regular basis, and if you have more than one blog, keep notes of each blog and how it works in case you need to remind yourself how it works.
I had written and self-published a book, and started a half dozen blogs in which I would post general interest articles that I thought would interest people who are open minded, counterculture, and politically interested, feminist articles, and then, every 20 or so posts, I would post the link to my book's url on Amazon. I have a WordPress blog, and so most every day, I post things that the news and my e-mail contacts send me. It was easy to set up the blog; in fact, I set up two, so I could decide to which site I would post and which article I would send to which blog. It took me a while to figure out how to take a URL and insert it into the blog. One part I don't like is that I have to wait until I am all done with the blog before I insert the link, because if I insert it and I need to add something, it will make the link disappear. So, I figured out either to wait till the end or cut and paste the link onto the text area, then go to the chain link on the toolbar and insert it. I learned how to save pictures using the media button up on the toolbar, so that I could have choices in the blog media area, but I still could click on the 'add image from computer' and find another picture to add to the media library. I also added a feature so that the blog can automatically send the post to Twitter, Tumblr and Google+. I didn't have to cut and paste the URLs for those sites. I wish I could add more auto posts. At the end of the blog, there are buttons you can click on to send the post to places like Reddit, Stumble Upon, Twitter, and again, I wish I could add more share buttons for sites like 'share this' or 'add this,' but so far, I can't figure out how to add the widget that would allow me to do this for more blogs I want to post to. I would like to learn more about that. So, either the post would auto post, or I could go down to the bottom and click on the buttons to post the blog to other posts. I use tags, categories (had to learn how to add new categories), mood, where the blog is located, how to save as draft, how to publish, and then go to view blog to see how it looks and to get the URL to post on other blogs. I am slowly getting followers but not as many as I have on Twitter.
Now that I know how it works, it's easy, and it helps by auto-posting to Twitter, Tumblr and Google+. It helps expose people to my blog posts to gain followers, and to post about my book.
There's some issue where the link disappears if I add anything in the text area, so I have to add the link last so it doesn't disappear.
