More followers who actually read my blog

Q: How do I get more followers or traffic for my blog?
1. Paste your URL in your emails to friends and family members, telling them to use the address bar and not the google search box.
2. Update your profile interest list. Each word becomes a link to other bloggers with the same interests as you.
3. When you are reading an interesting blog, leave a comment. Look at that blogger's list of blogs that he follows (in his profile). Leave comments on those blogs as well. Leaving comments will attract more readers to your own blog.
4. Create a hover bubble showing your URL on this forum, read by millions of bloggers worldwide.
This link shows you how to make your own:
