I think it'd be more engaging if you put even more of yourself into it, a headshot, stronger voice, more personality. There's obviously content and it looks interesting, I'll read through it later, but the sterility reminds me of search engine 'traps'. There's not enough contrast between the background and the foreground colors. The article headings look a little large and 'Palette' is misspelled on the top article.
Sorry to sound so critical, but if you keep putting content up there as you are and making it more engaging, I think you have a shot at getting some followers.
