    Hi folks, I started a blog almost 2 months ago and I make pretty regular entries (except when I was out of town at conferences). So far, though, my readership is pretty flat with a median daily read of 13 people.

    The purpose of my blog is basically meant to be an educational tool exposing how people screw up astronomy.

    If any of you happen to have successful blogs out there with a large readership (that aren't personal diary-type blogs), how did you go about building a sizable readership base?

    I joined blogmad ages ago and spent a few days racking up hundreds of credits. I've been to lazy to go back but I'm still getting traffic from it. I'm sure my credits should be running out before long, but lately my traffic via search engine has picked up.

    (If I remember right, each credit gets you one hit, or something like thatr)

    Oh, also, read other blogs and leave comments. :)
