I am thinking of posting to Blogs to help promote my domain business.
Any suggestions for a couple of good sites to start with?

Starting your own blog to provide quality content on a daily basis is one thing. Traveling around the 'net to insert a free advertisement into someone elses blog is another matter entirely.

In the past I may have done some blog spamming, but it is a little past it's time now as far as general purpose effectiveness. If you really want to blog spam you may want to set up a blog with open comments to have the automated spam bots request links from it. You can then check their backlinks to look for link locations. The problem with comment spam is that most blogs which allow blatent blog comment spam are not well taken care of and the ones with free inline comments do not usually have free hosting...which means the links will eventually go away.
The biggest problem with blatent blog spam is that it is rude, but if you don't care about offending people then you may want to create an automated bot. If you do create one I will view you as greedy and evil though...

I posted a blog entry on it here http://www.seroundta...ves/000232.html
Some spam still gets through, but it helps me fine tune the spam filter to block more spam like the ones that came through.

I was more thinking of adding helpful comments, that also contain a backlink to my site, helping everyone concerned.

If you're really intent on gaming the system, your best bet - the one that stands the best chance of your links being left intact and you not virtually run out on a rail - is to start a blog of your own. Make it something interesting to you, so that you'll actually want to maintain it every day / week / what have you. Don't make it a strict commerce site. Then go and leave your comments with URLs.
The downside of this solution, of course, is that it requires substantial continuing work on your part. You not only have to create the blog, but maintain it as active.
The upside is...if your posts are related to your business, you could start to build a reputation as an expert, or at least a very willing tutor.
Another thing to keep in mind: the blogosphere is almost as cliqueish as any highschool. It is truly an online community, with your popular people, your scathingly intelligent people, your willing outcasts, your social pariahs, your clowns, what have you. They're also as volatile as any high school clique - and they're all networked. Irritate one, you've pretty much put yourself on the outs with almost all of them (unless you can get yourself on one side or the other of some political issue.)
It's kind of like irritating a constipated elephant. The creature is big, awesome, somewhat ponderous, a bit unpredictable...and you **really** don't want to be in the wrong place when it lets loose.
