I do like many here do, post to Facebook, Tweeter. I also post links in Shetoldme, Redgage, IMautomator, Traffup and morehits4u.
However, the ultimate reason that will garnish you a good following and bring many views is to write quality pieces on niche topics.
Eventually you will discover that good quality can bring you some other unexpected positive results. I just inked a deal to publish a photography book, but the publisher convinced me to use a pseudonym for a trial run.
This would not have been possible if I had not joined HP, and written many articles, which in turn caught the eye of a publisher.
