    And, participate in blog carnivals 🙂

  2. Great tips! I took an unannounced break for 4 days last week and my traffic definitely suffered! In the mommyblogger niche, it’s all about relationships with other bloggers–if you’re not actively commenting and posting, you fall off the map!

    Thank you all for your comments, additional tips, and for visiting me. I hope you’ll come back often.

    Scott — I’m glad this was helpful to you and good luck on your new blog.

    Melanie — An example of a blog carnival is this one called Works For Me Wednesday and hosted by Shannon at http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/
    I find WFMW to be very interesting, educational, varied and fun. For more information about blog carnivals, check this link at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog_carnival

    SAHMmy — That’s an interesting discovery you made. Thanks for letting all of us know.
