Hello
I have made a blog about giving up drinking alcohol a step by step day by day account since I started but have never been part of the blogging comu8nity until I joined blogger just recently and linked it to my main site at www.madmickstories.com
It has took me ages to make over 2 years and I used something called Homestead (has anybody ever used thenm to make a blog before)
Obviously being an alcoholic when I started I wasnt very sure what I was supposed to do in blogworld but carried on anyway.
Can any experts out there give someone like me any advise because I have just got a stat counter and found out hardly anyones been reading it – a huge blow to the ego, I really thought the whole world was!
My top button on my main page links to blogger which is what I have just started using

Some of my suggestions...

Performancing articles
blogoscoped.com/archive/2005-1 ...

Problogger
problogger.net

Wendy Cheng, Full-time blogging

Of course, the audience is related to the kind of people interested in your topic. So I suggest to be specific to a certain topic, unless you want to become the next Boing Boing (which I assume is much harder).

Mike, I just visited your site, its more of a website rather then a blog.

I would suggest that you actually blog your thoughts and experince and the community will eventually read posting!!

Hi,
I have just started with blogger which is linked to my website-blog on [madmickstories3.blogspot.com] but so far no one has even posted a comment, I spent ages trying to make it look good – can someone tell me how to get an audience to this then or is my writing just really boring

Suggestion... I would take off the music from the site, or at least from every page. Other than that, looks like you've put many efforts into your site. Keep up the good work.

How do I look at your blog, when I follow your link I get stuff about cookies?
Anyway I have taken the music off most of my pages, I have also got a dummies guide to blogging book
