blog questions

This post is slightly self serving and I am not sure if this is really the place to ask these questions but I feel like it’s worth a shot.
This blog is mostly for me. I do it because I wanted to become a better writer. I figure the best way to do that is practice. And the best way to practice writing is to do it as much as possible. That is when I set forth on my quest to make myself write every night. Even if I had nothing to write about. Some days I had more than one post because I had more than one idea or thing that I felt was worth writing about. In a lot of ways, this blog has become a good mirror for me. It makes me see what I like and don’t like. It helps me center my thoughts. It has made me stronger and more thick skinned because at the end of the day, it is what I think of me that matters.
All of that being said, I would like to place a new challenge on myself. I would like to get more followers. I feel like I have proven that I can write but now I need an audience. It’s like when your little and you put on plays in the living room for your mom or dad, or in my case my stuffed animals. That was, until I got old enough to boss my cousins around and make them do shows in my grandparents living room for the entire family. Now, I put my work out in front of hundreds and I would like to do the same with this blog. I am ready to take that step out of this living room and into the “real world”.
My new goal is to get 100 followers by the end of the year. I want this not just because I want people to praise me. I am doing it because I want to not just write but to also be read. I don’t feel like that’s a selfish thing.
So fellow bloggers, how do I do it? What do I need to do to make my goal? Am I doing all I can do? Am I just too bad of a writer that I am not worth the read? Help. Please.  I want to be well written and well read.
