  3. The most effective way of promoting a blog within the WordPress.COM community is to seek out other blogs in the same niche as our own blog and post meaningful comments to posts in them.

    BTW in case someone forgets to tell you this here is the link to the wordpress.com global tag pages. http://en.wordpress.com/tags/
    There you will be able to locate blogs by category/tag that you can visit, read posts and leave comments on.

    In addition, your posts and/or blog may be selected to appear in wordpress.com's Freshly Pressed, Top Blogs, and Recent Posts. If so then you will receive an influx of traffic and responding to each and every comment personally will be important as it's a means of forming relationships with new readers from within the wordpress.com community, who may become regular readers/subscribers/commenters.

    At the end of the day, if you do not use social media and social networks to promote your blog posts and blog then you will find building a growing readership is more difficult as the audience you reach will be limited, and social networking tremendously expands the audience you can connect with.
