Just making a few minor changes the way you display your post or content, you can make big changes in exposing different articles on your blog and the real success of blog should be measured based on no. of subscription or time on each post by your unique visitors. Below I have highlighted some points you should check out..
Badge for Social media integration and showing off your activities at another site and giving users a way to share or engage with you on those sites.
Relevant post displaying on each post would add interest about another post to your readers and help for good linking structure for better visibility in search engine.
Badge showing no. of readers and if possible their images with small thumbnail similar like who follow in blogger which shows all the people who follow your blog.
Structuring your blog posts with flat page architecture and keep loyal no. of post on each page to view all the posts in sequence they have been published.
Give your readers a platform to make communication between them along with commenting. Like button like Facebook would work fine.
