    So I'm working on an authority site. I post regularly to it and update once a day and always add fresh content, nothing spun all written by me. The site is only about a month old and so far for the month I've gotten about 245+ unique vistors. I have created a twitter and facebook fanpage and they are slowllllllly growing I've been looking for methods to help them grow.

    I have also Manually submitted the posts to a handful of social bookmarking sites and i do this every time i make a new post. haven't made money yet but i'm hoping down the line with age and traffic ill start to make money.

    After all this I find I still have some time left in the day to do more. Am I missing anything? Should I start developing and building another site in another niche? I think my host allows me like 10 databases so I have 9 free.... 9 more blogs perhaps?

    As far as your social media, and depending on your niche, some of the best things you can do are contests, giveaways, and just having good old fashioned conversations with your users. remember, twitter is like a conversation and the half-life of a tweet is really short. So even if you screw up, everyone will forget about it in like fifteen minutes (unless you are Lindsey Lohan). Again, I'm not sure what your niche is, but you might also consider doing youtube videos if you've got the setup for it. They are fun to do and can help generate traffic. Or you can try contacting people with youtube videos to do cross-promoting This has worked for me in the past. Don't forget to use a program like Aweber to start capturing emails so that you can build a list. This is very valuable no matter what your niche.

    I would concentrate on this blog first. Learn everything you can, write and schedule content for the future, learn to build links and monetize. If you're not making money, there is no reason to expand your current strategy.
