Commenting on other people’s blogs is an excellent method of raising interest in your own blog. If you like Google reader, create a separate folder in it for other blogs you’re following. Make comments anytime you’d like to say something.
You should add to your blog as often as possible. Don’t be like other beginning bloggers who don’t update their blog frequently after starting it. This mistake will cost you readers.

You need to post at least once a week, and use a service, like Feedburner, to allow your readers to receive email notification of your new post.

The time you take aside from working on your blog will improve the quality of time that you do spend on it.
