Publicizing your blog can happen in several different ways, but it all boils down to reaching an audience. One very popular way is by linking your page to other personal blogs (A-list blogs or celebrity blogs) with comments. It is a way to spread the word about your existence. Get your site linked on a page such as popdex or blogdex.
On many blogs, there are many common links that are just the same people, over and over. The term for this is the A-lister. These are the people everyone quotes from. They are the sites that other bloggers want to emulate.
