I Am Getting A Bit Discouraged Lately

Ok people I'm gonna lay it on the line. I am quite puzzled as to the visits that I have been getting to my blog recently. I have been doing this for about a year and a half now and granted this a genre of music for whatever reason is not more widely recognized, but I thought that as time goes by readership would increase. This is what I believe discourages many bloggers out there like myself. When I first started out, I was getting about 50-100 new visits per day and was thrilled at that amount. Last month I was getting 400-600 new visits per day and was ecstatic. So far this month I am only getting 100-200 new visits per day and am starting to get discouraged. One thing that I started to do in the beginning was to offer free album downloads and MP3s from sources found on the internet: from other blogs, file sharing sites, etc. but kept on getting e-mails from bands, labels, etc. to take them down or get sued. How all of these popular sites do this I still do not understand and there are so many of them. I don't want to sound like I am complaining, all that I would like is a little input as what I can do to keep these new visitors coming back. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I would love to hear from you. Alright enough already, on with the posting...
