@got2bhelene...Ok I took a look at your site and one big thing I noticed is that is that you don't seem to be adding TAGS to any of your posts.
TAGS are words that help others find your blogs when they do a "search" so they can play an important part in people finding you. It's kind of like playing word association.
TAGS are easy to include. When you create a NEW POST if you look to the right of your screen you will see an option there that says POST TAGS. It has a drop down menu if you click on the little arrow. When that opens up you can type in the TAGS you want in the ADD NEW TAGS box for that topic then click ADD.
When TAGGING try to use common words that others might use when searching. EXAMPLE: If your blogging about school you might TAG with words like, kids, school, education, children, teachers, learning, studies, books, tests, etc...each one increases your chance of being found.
You can also TAG with what I call 'hot tags'...these are not words that are really associated but will aid in finding you...such as blog, blogging, new, news, wordpress, posts etc.
Thats the basics....and it should help some. If you need more help you can visit http://www.theguppypond.wordpress.com
It is a site I created to help "newbies" learn the in's and out's here at wordpress in plain and easy to understand english. It's a walkthrough that shows you what to do and lets you ask specific question on each topic.
:) good luck...
