Besides waiting around for people to find your blog, how about linking your posts to an online "newspaper"?
I'm new to the scene, having signed up today on Stumble, Kirsty and Digg.
You can share articles, videos and images and rate other peoples' content.
To add a Digg This button at the end of your posts, get the HTML code here.
Then track to see if being apart of these communities drives in traffic by using something like Google Analytics and Bravenet.
I'll get back to you on how this works out for me.
