If anyone has any tips on how to be a better blogger, please post them here.
My first suggestiong is that you put a widget or link prominately displayed on your blog for people to subscribe easily. I love Google Friend Connect and just started feedburner.
Also, you can discover your number of RSS readers through Google by going to Google Reader and clicking on the ADD A SUBSCRIPTION link on the top left side and type in your blog address. It should bring up a number of reader RSS subscribers.

Here is a great article on RSS, it is now a little bit out of date because of Google's recent buyout of Blogger.
The only way to see who is visiting your blog is by installing a tracker widget, which is really easy. Well, if you use blogger it is. I am not really familiar with wordpress, but I know they are allowing a lot of the same widgets.
I did a search and this came up:
There are step by step instructions to block someone.
You can create a new blog and repost everything including the design by backing up your blog and then reinstalling it your new one. I have done this before to test out designs.
Sign in to your DASHBOARD
Notice the TOOLS at the very top, you want to EXPORT YOUR BLOG.
Just follow the instructions and this will save all of your posts and comments so if you want to start a whole new blog you can then just IMPORT YOUR BLOG. Pretty much the same instructions and if I can do it, anyone can. I periodically do this in case my blog is ever hacked so I don't lose anything.
You also want to back up your TEMPLATE as well.
Go to your DASHBOARD and click on the DESIGN tab. Go to EDIT HTML and DOWNLOAD FULL TEMPLATE and follow the online instructions.
I usually save it to my desktop and then move it to a folder where I can find it.
As far as I know, yes, you will have to notify your old followers. I would try to block the one person you don't want first, rather than move your whole blog just because of one person. They would also just be able to google you to find the new address.
If this person is commenting inappropriately, you can also set your comments to MODERATE and then just delete them. Then maybe the person would get the hint.
