Content is always king. But writing good content alone will not bring you enough visitors to read it. You have to spend some time promoting your content after you publish it on your blog or website. Promotion is mandatory for any blog to bring in the initial visitors to read your content. Once visitors land on your blog, then there are other metrics like design, loading speed, and content to retain the visitors.
You have to promote your content in the right place whether it is a Facebook group or Pinterest board or any forum. You can’t talk about kids’ toys in the financial trading group or forum. So, I have shared some websites to submit your post to get a kick start. You might promote your blog post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn but here is the list of websites to submit your blog post.
Only posting your links or content on these websites will not bring traffic. Try to engage with other content creators or authors. Get some ideas from them, share your thoughts on their posts.
After all, what you give, you get back. This list is arranged randomly, not in the rank wise. Here is the list of websites to submit your blogpost and kickstart your traffic.

Formerly known as Stumbleupon. One of my favorite sites to drive enormous traffic to my blog. But “Mix” is not driving enough traffic as it was before “Stumbleupon”. Still, it’s a good site to submit your blog to get a decent amount of traffic.
Like other sites, you can’t link your RSS feed to publish your posts automatically. You have to post each article manually. This makes the process a little tedious, but you should make it a habit to post in the Mix after every live blogpost. Create your account, submit your blog posts manually.
#5. Blog Post Vote Up

Scoop.it is similar to Mix where you have to post each link manually and it has a limit to free users. Free users can post only 50posts. If you would like to post more than your old posts will be deleted. You can post more articles as a paid member and keep your old posts untouched.
