It will help you to get more readers of your blog. The key is to let search engines know that you are there. They will not learn it by themselves. I listed below some basic possibilities, that can instantly add traffic to your site.
1/ Get registered with linkrefferal.com. This is pretty friendly system if you would like to spend some time on it. You visit other websites, make reviews and get more traffic. Munus of it is, that this source doesn't give you targeted traffic, which is most required. However if you are at the beginning of your blogging journey and you want to promote your blog, this is a good source of traffic that will help your posts to get higher position on search results.
2/ Submit your URL to Google and Google Directory
3/ Submit your URL to Yahoo requires account opening
4/ Submit your URL to Add Me
5/ Submit your URL to Microsoft MSN Search
6/ Submit your URL to Alexa - scroll down to the bottom of the displayed page after you click the link
