Is it worth to continue submitting your blog to indexes?

Should you continue submitting your blog to indexes?

Is it worth to continue submitting your blog to indexes or directories? Once a blog achieves a certain PR (for example PR3 like this blog), that a question worth asking.
On the one hand, you want inbound links in order to increase your blogs ranking in the "eyes" of google. On the other hand, most of these blog directories or blog indexes, request that you link back to them in exchange for submitting. This can be tricky, especially if your posts appear on the homepage like on this blogspot blog.
You may end up linking to them from a PR3 webpage while they link back to your blog from a PR0 webpage. So, probably the best next steps to to try to improve your google PR without buying links, are:

1. Find blog directories that will link to you from PR3 or more webpages. That way you won't end up exchanging links with a low PR indexes.
2. Get inbound links without having to link back. This can be done by posting comments on high PR pages.
3. Be active in forums.
4. Post blogs on RSS feeds.

Yeah it seems that submitting to blog directories is no longer boosting the ranking. Need to work on other ideas to see if really works.

WoW! Do only Computer programmers blog. I have been blogging for years. Mainly for venting and for prosperity, I guess. I have absolutely zero viewers and I am rather proud of that fact. Not that it is good to have Zero viewers, but just because you can. I figure someday I will get censored. That day will probably be the day we lose our final rights. But in the meantime...I dont have the slightest Idea what yall are saying...indexes..pr3..etc. I just enjoy writing and judging from the fact I have no viewers...I must be horribly great at writing. Anyway, I dont do this for money...all though that would be nice. So I do not want to pay money, but I would if I had a ton of viewers. My real goal is to get atleast one nut out there to view my blog...haha...can some one tell me in plain lanuage...how I can do that during my morning tea...afternoon soda. I really want to spend alot of time on it though. P.S. Assume you are talking to a third grader if you e-mail me.

Just answering Phil. There are several ways to see google's PR.
If you use explerer you can view it through the google toolbar, if you use firefox you will have to download an add-on
