i second the motion;p!
but come to think of it? i fell in love with internet stupidly! for no unexplainable reason: i felt at home! safe and trusting, believing that all is okay,a sense of trust with openness, my means of freedom,my playground!
Yes i am! with the sense of growing responsibility, i became a part of many things;testing and probing-
yet keeping an open mind; with acceptances, resignations andf orgiving etc.in such many ways and
iencountered to my surprises, i got frightened and worried about...
keeping the story short, in my own understandings, i have risen in the level, together in the growth,
progress and developments of the web, i felt a certain belongingness in it......suffice to say.profoundly.
make a search for it. maybe someday, you will encounter the word. but such thoughts that come in
questions? i know it comes in passing, such thoughts no longer amazes and overwhelms me to pursue
stupidly.such came in profound learning experiences....in my opinion, our activities;in re;ation to everything
we do in the web leads to all noble, unprejudiced and profound. without any motives or intentions, we become......
and theres the pfun;p! as i cannot deny nor refute all the essential things how internet helps in our
humanity,yet i still hope and keep the open mind that sooner or later, shall it be ;p?
Keep updating your blog regularly.. share it to the communities in the
social networking sites, bookmark your blogs, add to blog directories,
concentrate on forums, give option for the users to subscribe to your
post... hope this might help
One way to spark some attention is give away something. Hold a contest or giveaway ($25 Gift Card) and make it mandatory that people follow you on twitter and retweet your contest. People love free prizes and if that will get them to your blog then the first step is taken care of. The second step is to keep them there with good content.
All of this is great advice and techniques I use. Just remember two other things:
1. Have fun with it. On-line marketing can be interesting and by reading these forums and other blogs your constintly learning new things.
2. Be sincere- Whenever I post comments (like this one) or forums I pick topics I can give sound and sincere advice.
Good Luck :)

The best way to get traffic to your site is to learn SEO. To join a community of members that share content that you can use to offer relevance to the search engines. You spin articles to make the content unique and you will explode up the pages on the engines. I found a great little company that does this that doesnt charge thousands of dollars that other companies charge. There is also a tremendous viral affiliate oppty attached to it where you can make money just by joining.
I hope a lot of you have heard about advanced search on facebook. A great way to find like minded individuals for you fan pages.
I'm on the ultimate quest on building traffic to my website (raffledog.com). In my search I found that you should comment on at least 5-10 different blogs and websites a day. Yes it is a lot of work but find sites similar to your website and hopefully you'll be interested enough to comment easily. Also make sure they are popular blogs that getg lots of traffic.
Madyson2010 gave you many ideas and different medium that you can use to bring free traffic to your site. Based on my experienced Forums works great, start out by joing few other forums that cater to your niche market and start posting. Anything that is free takes time and is not necessary the best, because time is money.
If you have some money for advertising than I would recommend PPC. PPC is instant, you will get traffic right away but you have to know what you're doing in order to run a successful campaing. It's always a good idea to hire PPC expert who can help you setup and manage your campaign if you are not a hands-on person.
