If you're looking for somewhere to advertise your blog or jump-start some traffic and get some new readers, have you considered advertising, or sponsoring another blog? I started doing this myself last year and have noticed a huge rise in followers and traffic!
For more information about stats, visit my sponsor page, but you can buy your ad-spot through Passionfruit (who I use myself, and trust 100%) below.
And until Easter I'm offering 10% off all packages with the promo-code 'SPRING10' at checkout (because I'm feeling the spring-sunshine!).
