Saw the movie, it was funny! Jim Carrey did a great job in acting the movie..now on topic..Something I have though of doing to promote my blog is to have interview with someone major in my niche, in my case, I will be interviewing a real licensed mortgage broker. You can probably do the same, maybe an affiliate marketer..
you should also create a fan page on facebook and then invite your friends.
I am also a writer for Serpholic Media. You can find some of my articles here: Serpholic Media Blog
