A little more info on traffic generation is always a good thing and can always come in useful if you haven’t tried it yet.
One way that has been working for my flagship site, The Honest Way, has been by me getting busy visiting other people’s blogs and leaving pertinent comments in them. Ok, some blogs still stick to the “nofollow” code so there is no back-link to the site. But even so, a lot of people read some of those comments and when you make a good, though-provoking one, some of those people are liable to click your link to see what you write about on your blog!
It’s been working for me, not in huge amounts but it’s all a part of the snowball effect. It starts with a few people coming over out of curiosity and they, in turn may mention my site on their blog if they liked it. That brings a few more interested visitors of whom some do the same. As more and more people visit, more get to hear about the place and the numbers rise.

PS: While we’re on the subject of traffic, a great pointer to how much traffic your site is getting is your Alexa Rank. For someone with the Alexa toolbar, you can see exactly what rank other sites have, so if they tell you they are getting more visitors than you, but their Alexa rank is much lower (bigger number) then you know they’re lying!
There’s a very good reason to get the Alexa toolbar for your browser!
