One way to get more traffic to your website, be it a blog or any old site, is to get yourself in one of the more popular Social Bookmarking sites, like del.icio.us or IceRocket. These sites are based around people sharing their bookmarks and are an ideal way to surf the Web if you just want to mooch around and just learn new things. There’s a great list of Social Bookmarking sites here if you want to have a look.
An interesting point about Social Bookmarking sites is that way they form a sense of community for people who frequent them. I spent a time hanging around Linkfilter a while back and a lot of people who comment on the posts know each other (virtually) and start exposing an online
persona.Would be an interesting topic for someone studying Social Sciences.
