    My blog is

    http://askkyletoday.wordpress.com/

    I am trying to get people to come and visit it. I give advice at the blog and really enjoy helping people. However, it seems I am lucky to get one or two questions a day. How do you guys promote your blogs? I dont really care much about ratings. Like if I get 100 viewers and only 2 post a question then the viewership numbers mean nothing. How do I get people to actually participate?

    Thanks and Merry Christmas
    -Kyle

    The blog I need help with is askkyletoday.wordpress.com.

    See what jingleyanqiu does, and don’t do that. He’s getting another suspension from the forums.

    You are not a blogging tips blogger so suggesting that Kyle ought to read your blog does not help him learn how to promote his blog. :(

    How about pinging at http://www.pingomatic.com- it’s by Automattic too. It sends pings to blog searches.

    If you’ve read the threads TT brought up, you’d see it’s not necessary. Pinging is automatic.

    As raincoaster says pingomatic (included in wordpress software) is automatic and I have a warning for you too. Do be aware that if you use multiple ping services and they overlap then they may consider you to be a “ping spammer” and ban your account.
