# Contact your blog web host and make technical and financial arrangements for increased traffic, if necessary.
# Streamline your blog’s design and content to feature more text than images, requiring less demand on the bandwidth.
# Reduce the number of database queries by changing link template tags and PHP requests for typically static information to static information, such as your blog title to its name, removing the code that requests it from the database.
# Use a cache utility which creates static pages from your generated pages, allowing visitors to view those, requiring less hits to the database.
