I've never made a penny with blogs, they just don't get enough traffic ever especially these days.You can write 100 articles and post them to every site you can think of and get almost no traffic. I write my blog for myself these days. I write it as a way to document things I find useful. My blog also serves as a way to show customers what I know or direct them to an article about a subject they need to understand more. akashicseer.com I didn't make a tech specific name because I am into technology overall not just a language or one thing.

I know mostly nothing about blogging but, in my opinion, a faster website on loading could be more attracting to readers. I entered to the blog and the only thing I have seen is a slow and crowded blog with a lot of words without images. Your site isn't frendly for new readers. Please, don't take this as attack (english is not my mother language and maybe I sound rude).

Sharing on social media helps if you have followers.

Twitter is easy to get followers. If you follow people some will follow back.
