    Now that I've got my blog up, I'd like to get people to actually read it and submit comments. (No kidding). I've submitted it to various blog lists only yesterday. I was just wondering if any of you had some hints on how to promote this blog.

    Actually read other blogs and submit comments on them. Link to them on your blog. Most blog traffic comes from other blogs, not from portals. It's a two-way thing. If people like your comments or see your site in their referer list, they will probably check out your site, but if you don't read and comment on other people's blogs you can't really expect them to read and comment on yours.

    Content. If you update regularly and provide interesting content they will return. WillM's part will get them to look, only the content can get them to bookmark or link to it.
    Oh yeah, when you come up with some of that fancy-schmancy 'content' stuff, could you send some my way?

    I have to agree with cedar. When I started my blog one of my main thoughts was...how do I get people to regularly visit my site. I finally realized that they would find my site and would come back if there was something for them there or they were interested. It takes a little while, but soon enough, you'll establish a reader base, people will link to you, and the word will spread. It takes patience.

    And you can't have a 403 blocking everybody from seeing your site. ;)
