Started a Blog - How Will People Find Me?

Posted by sameboat (My Page) on

I just started a blog of my very own using blogspot. I just don't know now how to expect people to find me or to follow me if they are interested in the topics covered. When I log into the site myself to search blogs I may be interested in, it doesn't let me search blogs by topic. It only scrolls to the "next blog" and it's entirely up to blogspot which blog it shows me. I just don't understand. So far I have no followers and it doesn't appear anyone is looking at my page but me. What am I supposed to be doing?

I do not know anything about hosting a blog, but have you Googled "How to drive traffic to my blog?". Also maybe where you have your blog hosted may have a forum where you can ask questions.

Here's what I did: I emailed it to everyone; I posted it on my FB page; then I posted it on a few forums where I have been members for years. I also have started commenting on others' because I also think it's hard to find blogs I'm interested in. You would think they would have a huge directory or something. Maybe I'll start a new post here where we can all post our blogs!
