Learning How to Promote My Websites

A Day by Day Journal

August 16, 2007 – Blogging for Business?

By Peter Ramsey

Blogging for my website product was the furthest thing from my mind early on in my attempts to promote my site. What would be interesting to blog about? There was no doubt in my mind which blogs get attention – sensational, passionate, controversial. My product is useful to most people, but kind of boring to talk about. Now I’m not so sure that’s true…

Today I’ll create an entry about the preacher’s wife, Mary Winkler, who was just released from jail after serving about 60 days for shooting him in the back while he slept. Her defense was that he was abusive and the jury apparently agreed. I happen to have a few assessments or quizzes to help evaluate the warning signs of an abusive relationship (, your own or someone you care about. I’ll mention it and include a link to it as well.

Now all I need is time to blog more and create all these great links.
