    1. link to blogs of other people.
    2. add it to search engines (might take a while for search engines to register it)
    3. link it to other websites
    4. be active in forums
    5. leave time for online net-working where you spread word about your blog
    6. email contacts about blog asking them to forward their email

    Thats a list of the many things to make your blog a a hit! Sorry, don’t know much on facebook. Good luck.

    p.s Please put a link to your blog the next time you post on the forum so we can view it.

    markbin,

    There is! :D

    Do you use Facebook to promote your blog? And how?

    That thread speaks about displaying your blog at Facebook using the wordpress app for Facebook. You can learn about the app here:
    Your WordPress Is In My Facebook

    That thread also speaks about how to promote the tag cloud of your blog in Facebook for extra visibility. This link will help you do that:
    Top 5 ways to promote your Tag Cloud

    Good luck! :D

    You might also want to put “Share on Facebook” links under your blog posts, so that interested readers can um…..share your blog post on Facebook. Learn how to put the links here:
    How to offer a “Share on Facebook” option under (wordpress.com) blog posts

    Enjoy! :D

    hi
    went to blogcatalog.com
    registered
    they have a bit of html to link back to them
    Is that html meant to go on every blog entry or is there a way to add it once to the blog itself?
    Thanks

    You can paste the code in a text widget and put it in your side bar. Remember to save changes!

    The Blogcatalog image will turn up in your blog! :D

    I have now added the domain to google and yahoo. Is there any advantage to authenticating the site?
    If so, how do I add the authentication code(s) to the blog?

    I don’t think you can, but it probably isn’t necessary. My WordPress blog was found by search engines very quickly.

    tfcadmin,

    I am glad Blogcatalog worked for you.

    kateblogs is right. Search engines find you in a bit of time, don’t worry! I never authenticated my site.

    Sorry for my late reply, I was out doing a workshop! :D

    how do I add the authentication code(s) to the blog?

    some of us have added the extra html page, which just dangles in the blog, totally uselessly.
    Maybe it is not necessary,
    But if you have been authenticated, you can then view a lot of extra statistics about your blog.
