Leaving Comments at DoFollow Sites
You can increase backlinks to your blog by leaving comments at DoFollow sites. Make sure you leave related comments not just “Hello!” or “Nice post!” or your comment will not be accepted by some blogs. You can find the dofollow blogs through dofollow blogs directories such as FollowList.com or DoFollowBlogs.com
Publish Your Own Theme
This is a suitable way if you love to design themes and playing with the scripts. You can publish your theme for WordPress, Blogspot and etc. The most important section is the credit section where the link to your blog will be there. Don’t forget to register your themes with CreativeCommons. More interesting themes that you produce means more bloggers will use the theme and thus you got more backlinks to your blog.
Exchange Links with Other Sites
The easiest way to get backlinks to your blog is by exchanging links with other sites. You can do this by joining online community or forums and approach other webmasters to exchange links with you. If you have good PageRank, maybe there are webmasters that will approach you and offer to exchange link. Make the deal wisely and don’t too demand or you site/blog will lose its credibility.

Blinkky, I’m not very good at coding either, however, I’m self-learning wordpress basics coding. Design isn’t a problem for me as I own Graphic Design Degree. But programming is something I’m not used to, so I found several great book to read in order to improve my coding skills.

As you mentioned above, content is always king and plays an important role with any site.
My site is currently DoFollow and I have CommentLuv plugin installed so the last blog post by the commentator is also left on my post. I visit a lot of sites and then follow these links if the title catches my eye. This leads to more comments and a lot more traffic. I have even generated backlinks from some readers.
