I thought I’d write this post because every so often I receive comments about driving traffic to a blog or site. I’m not so crazy about the term driving traffic, because when you’re stuck in traffic, the only vehicle you can control is your own. On the internet super highway, your blog is your vehicle [...]
In reviewing my stats the other day, the question of backlinking came to mind. You see, back in mid September, 2010 I registered 5 new domain names. It took me from September, 2010 to December, 2010 to finally set up the WordPress template and add content to the blogs. I didn’t add much content to [...]
I recently received an email from a reader on the topic of networking and advertising. In essence, she wanted to know the best method for networking with other freelance writers and getting the word out about her new blog. I prefaced my response by saying that I’m probably not the best person to ask about [...]
I had resisted signing up for a Twitter account when I first heard about Twitter. I couldn’t see a reason for Twittering. Over time, I acquiesced and signed up.

I’m still new to the Twitter world and am experimenting, but I’ve found Tweet Later to be a helpful and useful utility. Post Dated/Timed Tweets With tweet later I can post [...]
It’s amazing. There seems to be a whole other world going on behind my computer screen and I chose not to be a part of it. Well, two days ago I stepped into that world and my life hasn’t been the same. I’m talking about the world of Twitter. Twitter World Check out my past [...]
Whew, I spent an untold amount of time on Twitter yesterday. I was fiddling around with my background image, reading other Tweets, learning about how to add RSS Feeds and trying to understand how to respond to folks. With all of the Twittering, I didn’t get as much writing done as I wanted to. What [...]
