Attracting an Audience

I've been thinking how I might attract an audience for my fantasy novels. Conventional wisdom says blog. And build a website. And tweet. And post on forums. And and and...
Who has the time for all this? I have a 40-hour a week job. So my spare time should spent writing.
Besides will a web site really attract readers? Will tweeting?
I can see blog might help and might posting in forums but the latter activity is a major time sink and the former is very hard to do well.
It did occur to me that a blog about my characters and places in my world might be of interest to fantasy readers but I'm not convinced of that. So if anyone reading this has an opinion of the subject, please let me know. Thanks.
