This is a great way to get your pages spidered fast. But it's important to have pge you are linking to be somewhat related to topic of your post. Google is getting more picky about content of pages where your incoming links are coming from.
Also, it is important to optimize your blog just as you would for a website if you want to get theat free targeted traffic. Optimizing is easy, include your keywords within title and description of your blog, as well as in title posts occasionally. And don't forget to include same keywords within link text of your incoming links to your blog.
Most bloggers don't see traffic potential their blog holds if it was oiptimized just like any other webpage.
One more factor to consider: Google loves blogs Not simply because it's a blog, but because of nature of blogs; They usually have fresh relevant content on a specific topic. That's what Google loves. Give it what it wants and it will visit you more often.
