These are General Techniques that ensure traffic to your blog. Try to implement as many of them as you can, and as often as you can.

Rule #1 in blogging : Content is the King!
This is the most important Rule. No other technique will be effective unless you have content in your blog. You don't visit empty pages, do you? A blog which is rich in content has great chances of getting traffic from search engines alone.

This one is quite obvious. Try to make your blog posts as interesting as possible. You will eventually develop a style of your own. This will make your visitors want to come back to your blog again and again.
Not convinced? Check out this blog The Sneeze . Notice the style Steve (the author) uses. It makes you wanna go back there and read some more sometime right?

Try to post often. If possible, post daily. Blogs with fresh content are loved by search engines.

Make sure you are making use of the RSS feed of your blog. This will help you build a good readership. Use a site like FeedBurner for best results.

Make use of Social Bookmarking sites like Technorati, Digg, StumbleUpon, etc.

Comment on other posts related to the theme of your blog. Inward links to your blog count alot.
If you use any forum sites, make sure you include your blog's link in your signature with some catchy text!

If you can, try to employ some common SEO techniques. Do some googling and find out how. I'll post a tutorial on it later.

Done. Now we move on to : Monetizing Your Blog
