Hi guys, So I've been a lurker for about 3 months, trying to soak up all the wonderful info you guys post. Last night I tried my hand at making my first blog. I'm not trying to monetize at this point (especially using the content my blog is hosting.) I used a simple topic that has lots of news coverage since yesterday. I used content on mainstream sites and pasted it to my blog (gave credit to my sources.) I made a facebook and twitter account and made posts with links to my blog from each one. I also submitted my blog to reddit. As it stands today, my blog has no visitors and I did not receive one upvote on reddit. Can you guys please give me some pointers so I can at least get a few unqiue visitors? Once again, I am not trying to monetize in any way right now, just trying to figure out how to draw a crowd.
