You're welcome. :) Do note that if you have been told "build it and they will come" that's nonsense. There is no such thing as passive blog promotion. It's up to the blogger to learn how to structure a reader and search engine friendly blog, publish interesting fresh content frequently, and promote every post they publish throughout social networks.
I think what your blog and every other blog needs is a skilled and savvy blogger and targeted readers.
Targeted readers are those who arrive on your site because they already have an interest in the content your posts and blog contain. They have typed keywords and phrases into search engines and located your posts in the SERPS (search engine page results) and clicked through. The fact that targeted readers already have an interest in the content in your posts means they are likely to read more than one post, more likely to leave comments, and more likely to become regular readers/subscribers.
Consequently, the first step for any blogger to take to establish a flow of targeted readers to their blog is learning and applying the use of basic SEO elements, and relevant categories and tags, so their posts and blog are actually accessible to potential readers, who use search engines to locate content on subjects of interest to them. http://onecoolsite.wordpress.com/2009/08/04/basic-seo-elements-for-bloggers/
