Visit others' blogs too (specifically blogs like yours). Write your comments. If they like your statements, they sure will read your posts, too. Introduce your blogs to forums, too.

The advice to write thoughtful comments on other blogs is spot on.

You also want to write articles in response to other bloggers' posts, with links back to the article that originally inspired your post. That will generate a trackback on their blog -- sometimes this leads to them visiting your blog, or writing a further response to your response (which in turn will link back to you).

I picked up a few nice links from some blawgs (law blogs) recently for one of my "side project" blogs through just this method.

Aside from the link love, this also exposes your blog to the readers of all these other blogs, which can get you some more subscribers.

Default A few more things you can do

You can register it in Technorati. I'm new - can post the URL yet. Technorati is sort of a search engine for blogs.

You cans set up 'tags' which means essentially you are categorizing what you're talking about. A search engine will 'look' for tags - for you they could be financially related - and you'd show up better on rankings.

You should also have your blog name on your signature.

Great advice!!

LC - Be sure to add your blog web site link in your signature. If you are not sure how to do that just visit your profile and change your email address to your blog site address.

Also, try and contact bloggers of some blogs you like and see if they will do a free review of your blog, they might even do a link exchange for you!

The main thing is, when you write a blog with a purpose to make money with it, is to not write it for money. You have to write good, quality posts with useful information which will bring visitors and visitors = money.

What bookmarking site?

Thanks,

P.S. I'm not looking to make money on my blog... I'm just looking to get more people to join in
