I don't personally have a site set up yet but I think the main thing I would do to promote it is go to art sales and such and ALWAYS have business cards with my website address on them. Some people just want to look at art at a sale but that doesn't mean they won't buy at some point in the future so if they're interested leave cards out for them to take at your booth.

I know I always end up with a huge collection of cards after I visit an art sale/show and I will NEVER remember the name of an artist who didn't have a card. So it's always a huge plus to have a business card in my opinion

All of the few little art galleries that have exhibited my paintings in the 21st century found me via the Internet. But it never hurts to have a business card, if for no other reason than it cuts short a lot of agonizingly tedious conversations. Here's mine:

Here's my blog. No doubt these can be an excellent promotional tool, but one needs to keep them active in order to attract a readership, and I have a hard time writing stuff on a daily basis. It's impossible for me to write unless I actually think I have something to say that's worth reading, which really is not very often.

Here's my blog, http://slbarkley.tumblr.com. I have a few followers, only because the makers of the blogs have a big following. I also have a site were I tried selling my screen-printed bags, http://www.owlystrig.com. But it hasn't really got many views.
It's pretty hard to promote yourself. :(

I also have a hard time trying to get people to notice me. But that's no surprise right now since I've just newly stepped outside of doing just fan art and moving on to more commercial stuff. But there's always a way where we can team up and promote each other through blogs and stuff, so if anyone's curious, this is my blog http://amalimrock-arts.blogspot.com/ and we can exchange links and feature each other's artwork in posts and whatnot.

The graphic behind your text on the first page makes the text a little hard to read. Otherwise, it's a nice site.
