Increase My Traffic

So, I've been researching how to increase the traffic to my blog.  I can't expect to get my big break by blogging to my mother and a few friends, now can I? 

One way to promote your blog is by linking to others blogs.  SO:  introducing my two new best friends:  Material Girls (two design divas out of Texas) and Habitually Chic (a NYC design professional).  They don't know it now - but they are my new heroes.  I figure I need to make connections any way I can - so look out ladies - I want to share your styles with my (oh so very few - but soon to be many) readers!

 I have been so encouraged by all the decorating blogs I have stumbled upon.  I just want to take each one of them out to lunch to figure out how the heck they got started in this business.  Tips - anyone, anyone?  I did notice that Material Girls started out by going to design school - and Habitually Chic works for a design firm in the Big Apple.  Uh so - how does an informally trained eye get her big break, girls?

Hi there! I have the perfect answer for you...The Society of Decorating Professionals (The SDP).

I just got back from the annual conference in AZ where we did nothing but talk about decorating, business and eat. It was great!

We are all like you with a passion for decorating. You will not meet a better group of people. I guarantee it.

I'm helping them create a new blog. Check it out at http://thedecoratingvoice.typepad.com/

I hope to hear from you and see you at next year's conference.

Wow! I'm behind in viewing my comments. Thanks everyone! My career search has found some new wind on which to sail after my recent "busy stint" at work. My blog has been neglected! I will get back to you guys in short order - i'm sorry it's been so long!
