Forums are good way to drive traffic if you are regularly posting something.
Stay simple and be original, have patience and perseverance and connect with other bloggers to grow as a blogger!
Don't just type, talk to your audience. Blogging is way big a market on internet and people will like you if you do more than just providing information. Suggest, express, appreciate, criticize and have an opinion to build a relativity to a like minded audience. Make them feel that their visit to your blog matters to you.
