I've been around for a long time and have blogged on several platforms. Switching to another blogging platform solves nothing. The bottom line when it comes to getting traffic is knowing that cyberspace is a give, give, give again to get world. Followers don't arrive each and every time we publish and that's not surprising because we all have lives to live and few are sitting in front of a monitor waiting for someone else to publish. LOL :D
If you want to increase traffic then don't listen to anyone who professes there are any passive ways of doing that because there aren't. Increasing traffic to a blog is hard work. If you want your blog to rank well in search engine results then that begins with creating and publishing original content ie. unique content that cannot be found anywhere else on the internet. That's important because the lion's share of traffic to any well established and successful blogs is from search engines. Aside from search engine traffic the two primary ways of attracting like-minded subscribers are (1) commenting meaningfully and frequently on blogs with similar content and (2) being active on social networking sites.
