# 4. Promote Your Blog

Check out the video:

So, what is a blog without people to read it?

To help you gather some readers (and avoid headaches of the tree-falls-in-the-forest variety), send an e-mail with your name, your blog’s name and web address to If you choose to do so, we will post a link to your blog on the 27 Things page so members of the 2.0 team and others participating in the program can read about…well, whatever your blog is about. We promise to leave lots of comments and be very encouraging. You, in turn, can do the same for your co-workers. While you're at it you could send an invite to your friends and family as well--let everyone know just how 2.o you are! You can also blog anonymously if you like--still send us your name and your blog's name and web address--we'll post the link and leave your name out of it. Don't worry--we can keep a secret.
