5 easy FREE steps to the blog traffic you want

here is a list of things that i have found help drive traffic to my blog....sure there are blogs with more traffic then mine, but i am sharing my experiences! enjoy!



1. post a new post everyday.

----good topic choices------

*featured artist...this will bring that artist to your blog, and they may write about their feature on their blog

*your new items

* cool items/info you find

*how tos....how to make----how to do-----how to whatever you want

keeping your blog active is very important for readers to come back!



2. join blogrush. it is FREE and easy to install. it drives traffic to your blog through a widget. you can find it on the right colum of my blog. the widget is updated everytime your page is loaded. the widget stays in the category that you pick. your new posts will be on widgets all over. i have seen the greatest traffic increase with BlogRush. to start getting traffic with BlogRush just click on the widget on the top right side!!!



3. join blog rings....here is the best place to find them.... http://www.ringsurf.com/

this is also FREE


4. join blogcatalog.......once again this is FREE

http://www.blogcatalog.com/

Blogcatalog is a cool community of bloggers. you can make friends, there are forums, and groups to join. it is important to take part in the community to gain the traffic.


5. use forums to promote your blog. for etsy sellers use the promo, and crafting sections. there is always a "blog love" post some where.



**** Have fun with your blog. if you are using your blog as a business tool you can still have fun. talk about topics you like, but keep them relevant to your blog. ***
