Welcome to the blogging world and Top Mommy Blogs.
Looking at your blog, I don't see a subscription/email sign up? Also, you a great way to connect and gain followers is to be social, I see you're on facebook.. Do you have a Twitter/Instagram/Pinterest/Google+ accounts? These are great tools to have. I just started in October, so I am familiar with getting started and learning as you go.
There is a great Facebook group: Creative Bloggers Network, lots of interacting going on.
