Good for you for getting started! It doesn't take long and if you keep it up, you'll find that people will find you. Mine is now visited by an average of 125 people a day from all over the world.
The Internet is a bit like a spider web - which is why search engines "crawl" the web. If your site is active, it tends to move up in search engines - as if a fly is wiggling around in a spider web, the spider finds it because of its activity.
Interesting note from Mr. Rogers: The reason a spider doesn't get caught in its own web is that the horizontal lines in a spider web are not sticky, so the spider navigates on the horizontal threads rather than the vertical ones which are sticky. (Oops - I think I said it backwards - the vertical ones are not sticky and the horizontal ones are :roll: :roll: :roll:)
Also the more you write about, the more topics on your site are referenced by the spider. I imagine this also has to do with Google being the host of my blog, but if you search Google on any beekeeping term on which I have posted, my blog typically shows up in the first or second page on a google search - mostly because I have "wiggled" a lot and therefore gotten a lot of attention from the spider. I think when a visitor reads a page on my blog, that also counts as a "wiggle" in the web.
