I'm curious of any tips on getting traffic to my personal blog.

The topics range from transgender issues, sex toy reviews, sex in general.

I'm not looking to get any monetary gain. Mostly would just like to get more followers and comments. I'm working toward a career as a sex counselor/educator and I'd like to build a name for myself, figured it would be better to start sooner than later.

my blog is on wordpress at the moment, so it's fairly minimal.

Would anyone be willing to give any critiques? At the moment a lot of my posts are links to my Edens reviews or articles.

I was going to email or message you but there is no information or contact method on your website and you haven't turned in the messaging system here, either. A little personal info is always helpful to draw the visitor in and make you memorable. So is a strong, unique theme. The one you're using is really popular and I know you have limited options with WordPress but if you really wanna make a name for yourself, plan to spend money to either host your own blog or buy the options to further customize your theme. With a graphic and some colour changes, your theme will be much more unique.

You can post your reviews to pleasurists (link) to get some more exposure and glance around other blogs - many of us are listed at different blog directories.

Commenting and following folks on Twitter will help you get to know other folks and you can use services like TwitterFeed to update your Twitter when you make a new post.

Thanks for the detailed post, and the head's up on having no contact method on the website! I didn't even notice that! I'll be adding to it to fix that this weekend along with some more personal posts.

I do plan on getting a more unique blog and see about bartering with my tech friends to work on something more personal. At the moment since I've got no real audience I've just starting out with something free. At least for now I will spend some time editing what I can on wordpress to make it pop more.

I have tried pleasurists once, but didn't make the cut. I will try again in the future.

Thank you for all the tips, they are much appreciated!

I would also suggest following others and commenting on their blogs. They get to know you that way, get curious, check out yours and often comment in return.
