One of the questions I had when I first became a blogger was, How do I get people to read my blog? How do I promote it? Other than commenting on other people's blogs, I've found entering posts in blog carnivals to be really good way to get the blog 'out there'.
Here are some sites which I have entered posts into:
1. Christian Blog Carnival
2. Best Posts of the Week
3. Photo Friday
Check them out and see if they appeal to you and fit with your style of blog. They may bring a little extra traffic your way and introduce you to some new blogs.
