Besides good content, visiting other blogs and commenting - I'm just curious what "magic spell" you conjured to gain lots of readers to come read your blog. Please share what worked best. Thank you.

Hi Terra

You can visit the Entrecard site here. There's also an Entrecard group here at MBC if you need any help.
I think the main thing is to go out and visit other blogs and leave thoughtful comments. In time, they will return the favor and hopefully you'll make new blogging friends.
So glad you posted this topics, its been fun reading the comment from others. I'm trying my first giveaway right now and am definitely seeing an increase in traffic. We'll see if any of those hang around afterward. I also just signed up for twitter yesterday so we'll see if that helps at all.

So far the biggest boost for my site has been being featured on an already established site such as Project Nursery, One Pretty Thing, and Tip Junkie and posting in forums like this one or my all-time favorite TheNest.

I believe making folks familiar with you is the key to loyal readers
Most of my readers come from related forums. I write a knitting/quilting/sewing/etc. blog, and am a member of a couple knitting/crochet forums. I joined and participate because I enjoy them and gain a lot from them, but being a productive member there leads people to want to check out my blog, and some stick around. I also believe in providing something tangible to my readers. I have a few original knitting designs, and I offer them for free on my blog. People love free stuff, so those always get a lot of attention! And I can post about them on one of the knitting forums (which also includes a pattern database), so there are people constantly discovering my designs and coming over for a look. One of those designs was even featured on a very well-known knitting blog (the poster discovered it via the knitting forum), and the result was--after the unsustained huge traffic spike--a doubling of my daily readership. It's still not a ton of readers, but it's a good start!
I'm new to review/chat type blogging so my readership is still low but my blogging is a bit slow but I think commenting and getting involved with other people's blogs really helps. If you give support you'll get support
hi, maricris! everything they said about entrecard and stuff is doing wonders for me now. slowly, im receiving a fair amount of traffic for those networks, and ive only recently joined them. plus, i surf other blog as well and leave comments. then i see those bloggers paying a visit or comment back. :)
