We're fairly new to the blogosphere and have been trying different things to help promote our blog. We just posted our first giveaway and have been getting a great response. We set it up so that as more people enter, we add more books to choose from and more winners. Our thinking was that this would reward others for helping to promote the contest.
However, we know you guys (new and veteran bloggers) must have some tried and true, original and creative methods that we don't know about that have proved effective in driving traffic to your blog.
In our experience the blogging community is a generous one. We have met lots of kind and wonderful people.
Soooooo... would you please share?
Please. Share with all of us here the ways that have been the most effective in promoting your blog and increasing traffic.
Thank you and we look forward to your responses.
