    When you decided to create a blog, did you create it with
    a specific audience in mind?

    Just like any other product, you need a hungry audience who
    are interested in your topic.

    Instead of starting with an idea for a blog, an ebook or any
    other type of product - you should start with a market with a
    demand.

    As WizIMS mentioned above, you can find every weird thing in the world (and some other strange places) on YouTube. Another place might be a search on Google for 'weird rss feeds' or content..

    Your blog looks really nice

    Keep on keeping on

    You can use Stumble Upon and submit to other social sites like Digg.com

    "TAKE ACTION" is the first thing everyone tells you and then they leave it at that. I'll add a second part: TRACK EVERYTHING" - It's the only way to ensure your ACTION leads to results.

    Isn't this the $64,000 question. Well I have not found any secret nor have I any pearls of wisdom, except to say at one point I didn't know how to ride a bike and then I did. There is only reason why I did and that is once I started, I didn't quit.

    Read as much as you can in here
    Post where you can be helpful
    Just try ****
    but most of all just don't quit

    You will be surprised at how far you come in a quick period of time and in that time how much you break away from the crowd because most people quit.

    Hope this helps or inspires

    I didn't look at your site but if it's niche/market related Blog then just simply hang out where your audience hang out and start participating and have links in your profile, sigs or whatever.

    Try places like:
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Forums
    Youtube
    Digg

    Hope this helps

      There are so many different ways you can do this. Whether your looking to spend money or do it for free will limit your choices.

      I would just go for some free methods

      Use things like facebook - Make a groups, invite friends to share your blog and spread it. Post an article from the blog on other related groups and people will begin to share the article if its good enough.

      Youtube - Go from a blog to a vlog. Carry on putting out the written formats, but try making some videos with pictures etc talking over them. This will greatly widen your audience.

      Make sure your site is optimised for search engines


      You could use some offline techniques as well as online, although harder to do this could prove effective.



      Have a look around, it will take some effort. But you should get some traffic coming in the end, keep at it!

    You should try getting your page ranked in SEO. You have a lot of cell phone related ads. I would shoot for a keyword that included cell phones, or mobile devices. You might also get your content linked in with news sites.
