The World Wide Web is a crazy place with billions and billions of websites, it not easy getting your site recognized. I’m no stranger to marketing. I’ve helped market some great projects in the past. As I ventured into building this site, I’ve come to this simple conclusion. Its MUCH easier to work on a team, than it is to go it alone.
Never the less, I needed to get my site out there. I thought about creating an email and sending it to everyone on my email list, but I was a bit shy. I know a motivational speaker shy. Its weird, but I can get in front of a crowd and speak about nearly any subject, but pouring my heart out online, and sharing it with people I know is a bit scary to me. Looking forward, I know I’ll get to that point, but until then. I need to move forward with my marketing plan.
Getting your site public, is a subject that one can write a book on unto its self, but I’ll be skipping all the “normal” things you do to get your site on Google, Y!, MSN, etc. I won’t be talking about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The route I’ll be taking is a little bit longer, and more grass-roots. I’m not looking to win a popularity contest with my blog, or to gain a huge following. I’m only interested in being the best me I know how, and motivating others to do the same. On this quest, I began visiting other blogs. I did this for a few reasons. Initially, I did this to market my site. I figure, I read a blog. Post a comment and link to my site. Snap!, I just gained a few new users. This isn’t what ended up happening. I may have jumped up the page rank on google a bit, but that was about it. The thing that got me was, inspiration. The more and more sites I visited, the more blogs I found. The more I read, the most I posted. I didn’t just post to get my blog out there, but I really felt I contributed to the initial blog post and opened the floor to new questions. It’s a truly inspiring thing. This is why I check my comment here daily — feel free to add any insight you may have, or link your blog
