How do you publicize your blog?

OK, so you have a blog. Don’t we all. we all want to be read and loved. The following will not tell you how to be read and loved, but it will tell you how to get it so that you have the potential to be in that state. The real way to be known and loved is either to be very amusing, and have a bunch of people come to your site for the humor, or be very knowledgeable, such as ThinkSecret.

But, beyond that, you have to make it easy for people to check on your site, and to do this, you need RSS feeds, and all that sort of stuff. TypePad, offers a lot of these type of feeds, but a client recently wanted more, and I stumbled across Add This! This has all the different feeds that are out there, and they make it easy for the those on the major blog services to add them.

Once you have that set up, it is up to you to get the word out about your blog. Put it in your signature (although considering how few people read all the way through an email, who knows if they will notice your sig.), tell your friends, link back to it when you post on other blogs.s.

Don’t be shy. That’s why you have a blog.
