Twitter is my queen! It has made such a tremendous difference for voiceBoks and if you notice, a lot of new members come from Twitter as well. However, you have to reach a lot of followers in order for you to get to the point of comfort.
voiceBoks (@vB_mama) currently has 19,162 followers. Its giveaways (@vbgiveaways) account has 7,051 and voiceBoks Amplified (@vbamplified), which is still to come has 3,415 followers. So yes, it's because we do have a lot is the reason it is working for us. So I believe whatever you're comfortable with and you have lots of followers for it is what would make it happen for you.
I agree that Pinterest is awesome. I haven't spent a whole lot of time on it, but I know people who have never used Twitter that are already hooked on Pinterest. It can work just as well for regular blogs as long as you attach photos that really make you go , "wow!"

I get most of my traffic from self promotion. One thing I am learning recently. Build an email list. Now when I join giveaways, I put my email subscribe instead of twitter and all those other social media options. I do still do twitter and facebook, but promoting through an email list is a very nice target. Just something to think about.
How does this work? I've wondered about how email subscriptions work with blogger.
I use Feedburner's email. I have it on my blog, for easy sign ups. It should work with blogger as well. :) As it's google.
To expand on this, I have my email go out once daily between 7am to 9am. So no matter how many posts I write, the subscirber will get an email only in the morning. So if I wrote a few posts that day, the morning email will show a few posts in it. :)

@Kathy, @Sarah - Is it copywright, copywrite, or copyright? Now I'm confused lol!
I have the same problem and have heard others say the same, so I think it's pretty common. I'm not really sure what the solution is. If you find out a trick, I'd love to know.

I share more on Facebook than G+, but I can't get anyone to comment or share my posts which is frustrating to me.
