Looking for bloggers who went looking for audiences

Today I got a call from a NYT reporter who is looking to find people who have started weblogs, written for a while, and had a hard time finding an audience.  Are you one of those people?  Ideally, you should have tried a variety of methods to gain an audience, and after trials and travails, you now have a regular readership.  If you're interested in being interviewed to find out your experiences, leave a comment below describing why you would be right for the article, some of the things you did that didn't work, and some of the things that worked.  Don't forget to leave a way to contact you, as the reporter will want to follow up with a number of people.  No promises that you'll get a call, but this does sound like an interesting upcoming article.
