In some ways, it's easier if no one's reading your blog at the beginning. It gives you time to figure out your voice and a schedule that works for you. Also, when you get a number of posts built up before you start really trying to find an audience, they have something to read when they come.

As for building an audience -- every quarter, Jean Schara updates the blog listing for FM members, so you can be listed there; if you're on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+, you can post links to your blog post for people who you're already connected to; when you visit blogs you're interested in, you can include your blog address when you leave a comment and interested people can follow that link to find you; and next April, I definitely recommend trying the A to Z Blog Challenge, where you'll find new blogs you want to follow and others will find you.
