Best Ways to Promote My Blog?

I'm trying to get traffic to my blog. I currently write a blog where I join "make money online" or "free gift card" type web sites and blog about how successful (or unsuccessful) I am with them, whether they are a scam or legitimate, and stuff like that. I try to be as honest as possible on my blog, and I update it regularly and evaluate new sites fairly regularly, so I really do feel that it is a good blog. Still, in real life, "if you build it they will come" is not necessarily true, so I'm having trouble driving traffic to my blog. If you're curious, the link to my blog is in my profile in the upper righthand corner, but I am not here to spam my blog link. I'm here to ask a question. Because my blog has Adsense ads on it, I can't really use anything like EasyHits4U to drive traffic directly to my blog. I'd get my Adsense account yanked. The best I can do is send it to a splash page, and then send that traffic to my blog. I would much prefer to get traffic directly to my blog. I have tried to sign up for blog search engines, but I've only found a few so far, and some of them require a fee before they'll even evaluate your blog. As for keywords, it's a Blogger blog - it does pretty well in search engine rankings. What are some ways that I can drive traffic directly to my blog?

I am in the process of putting together a website for blogs/sites like yours!! It is fully functional and I already have a fair amount of traffic, so you can increase traffic right away. The site is based on making money online opps and ideas and allows site/blog owners to submit articles with links, add their link to the directory and participate in the forums (with links, of course). You could submit summaries of a few of your reviews to be posted on the front page, in the new 'Review Of The Day' area. The site is makemoneyonlinehowtos.com if you'd like to check it out.

My blog is similar I like link referral as a site that promotes my blog. It is a good site and one that I am happy with. MY blog sounds similar to yours check it out and I will check out yours as well. If you like we could trade referrals.
