Promoting your new blog is a must if you want to get it known out on the world wide web. A new blog needs to be discovered before it can become successful. Promoting your blog can be done in many ways including article writing, through social networking and by joining blog communities.

Article Directories

Article directories can be a great way to promote your blog. By writing articles and then submitting them, you show others that your are an expert and are worth checking out. Directories like Ezine and Article Base are great sites to start with.

Social Networking

Social Networking has the most potential to get your blog off the ground. All it takes is for one of your posts to hit the front page of Digg and boom, tons of visitors and your blog is known. Social Networking sites like Digg and Stumble Upon can be great for promoting your blog, especially if you write interesting posts. These type of posts will spread around and have the chance to become viral.

Blog Communities

There are many blog communities out there that provide you an opportunity to make friends with other bloggers. One of my personal favorites is Blog Catalog which allows you to join groups and enter discussions. Its a very good site for promoting your blog. You can also learn info from other bloggers at communities like Blog Catalog.

Getting people to look at your blog takes time and effort. Promoting isn't an easy task by all means. However, if you follow these three tips you should be on your way to getting your blog known by people around the world.

    Nice info especially about the blogcatalog. I almost forgot all about this site and groups. I believe you can get a good amount of traffic if you belong to the right groups.
