Okay so I'm "trying" to put on mass for quite some time now I've been doing more repetitions and more sets now, but I usually start off wit cardio I was wondering if that's a big mistake an I have no off days, I also been getting more stronger but not seeing any more gains I was wondering if I'm not genetically bless like some people.

Idk any ideas would help?

You want to do heavier weights,less reps. Pushing yourself to increase weight. If you were able to do a rep of eight or ten, you need more weight.

Bulking isnt about doing more sets and more reps, its about progressive overload. Doing less reps with more weight is better if ur on a bulk. Google Ripptoes 5x5 program, its good for beginners. But regardless of what ur doing in the gym, u have to make sure that ur eating a surplus of calories. If u dont eat enough food u wont gain any muscle.

U need no less than3/4 gram per lb for each lbs u shooting for up t o 1  gram sometimes . do your cadio last if at all you r trying to break down muscle tissue not burn calories. U need at least 1 day off and if u need a alarm clock to. Wake up u not getting enough sleep

Bulking is all in the kitchen. U can lift all u want and u won't gain a pound unless ur eating enough. U need material to build a house just like u need material to build muscle. Its all about eating more calories than wat ur body needs to maintain. There r ppl on here that can help u a lot btr than I can. I'm learning myself. I would look it up and read all u can on it.

Make sure you have a day of you need to recover, your stressing your muscle. Not only that but you need to start eating more calories than you burn. You need to create a calorie surplus. Make sure you eat your calories don't drink them.  Get enough sleep as well.
