Week #1 of being healthy...SUCCESS!

DIY Self-Promotion

A few weeks (now, several months) back, while working on another project, I came up with the bright idea to do some self-promoting. Everyone walks around wearing t-shirts, baseball hats or even carrying a tote bag promoting something. Well if I want to attract more visitors to my site, I need to get the name out there....more
