Write a good quality content so visitors come will come back for more. 2. Make an attractive design and layout. Be careful for your blog’s design not to be messy, sloppy, hard to navigate, too coloured etc. 3. Get your own domain. If you have your domain, you’tt get more traffic than having a subdomain. 4. Use MyBlogLog. Join the maximum MyBlogLog communities you can and find yourself a “jump-in-eyes” avatar to get noticed. 5. Use StumbleUpon. When you have a right article on StumbleUpon, expect a lot of people to rate your post a thumbs up, and then expect more people to come to your blog. 6. Use Youtube. List the link to your blog when creating a new account. Start making some video and wait viewers to come to your blog through the link you provided. Some come, some not, but try this method too. 7.
