Everyone should make sure their blogs have visitor counters and link lists. Click on the links here or in the side bar if you don't know how to do this. You should also make sure that anyone can comment on your blog by going to 'settings', then 'comments' and changing the 'who can comment' box to 'anyone'. The only problem with this is that then robots can write advertising comments on your blog. To stop this, look further down the page for 'show word verification on comments' and change it to 'yes'.
Now you should send an email to your friends and family to ask them to read your blog everyday and write comments on it!
