How to promote a food blog?

NonnieMuss | Aug 27, 201307:46 AM     25

I hope this is not against CH's policy, but I couldn't find anything in the rules about it, so here goes. I'm going to be totally original and start a food blog - you know, talk about things I cook and eat. I know you've never heard of such a thing before, so this must be exciting for everyone.

Anyway I wanted to ask those who have food blogs how they get traffic? Do you allow comments? Do you allow advertising? Do you promote or advertise your blog? Do you have any advice? What sort of traffic do you get? I am definitely NOT trying to promote my own on here, as I only have one post so far and I'm not terribly happy with it yet. Just wondering about the experiences of others who have tried and failed, tried and succeeded, or just keep trying for their own amusement.
