    to me the best ways to promote a blog are to reference people in your community who interest you and write interesting stuff about what they say. either agreeing or disagreeing. make sure you link to them and click through the link a few times. if they have trackbacks turned on then they can see your post that way. you also can comment on their site.

    just having something interesting unique and useful to say goes a long way.

    along with those ideas I am also a big fan of building tons of links

    You might want to take a look at www.BlogExplosion.com. They have a combination directory and traffic exchange exclusively for Blogs.

    If it's a blog, promote by RSS nowadays, it really has turned into the best way.
