    Background information:

    I own a tumblr blog with a good authority domain name and in a decent niche. I post about 400-450 posts a week that I automated myself because the public tumblr queue bot doesn't work and in my opinion this method is much easier and I usually gain around 20 followers a day naturally (I don't use the tumblrplug bot or auto-like posts or anything or even "follow-back"). Right now I have around ~5,500 followers. I use adsense to monetize right now, but it isn't making that much money. I coded my own theme as well as made logos for my site in photoshop. I make around $10 a month with it, but it just doesn't seem like it's worth my time and effort that I put into this as I've already had my blog for a few months, and I could just be spending my time working at my part-time job. I really wish to continue what I've started and figure out ways of increasing traffic.

    So here are my questions/advice I'm seeking:

    1.) How can I grow my blog to attract more followers quickly? (This is kind of a loaded question, sorry in advance, I'm more trying to see if there is any specific things you BHW members could point me in the right direction in doing)

    2.) What kinds of descriptions get more reblogs and generate more followers/visits to your tumblr?

    3.) What are other ways I can monetize besides using AdSense on tumblr and what works the best for you?

    I've been on BHW for about a year and I've read countless threads on this, but some seem outdated, so forgive me if my post is a bit cliche.
