Yep, you guessed it. It’s Saturday! You know what that means. Website Review Day! (cue happy cheering) Today’s lucky contestant is (drumroll, please)…SeeYouOnTheCall.com. I happened to find out about this awesome resource when I was updating the listing for my radio show on TeleseminarNation.com. SeeYouOnTheCall.com is a great tool to use to promote your telecalls. They have a free and a paid service. Basically what you do is list your telecall and they email it to their list. The paid service allows you to schedule when they email your announcement. The only thing you have to remember is to put your call on the list at least 48 hours in advance.
As part of my article marketing challenge, I’ve been writing a lot of articles about social media. Since today is the day that I normally write about networking, anyway, I decided to share one of those articles with you here. Enjoy.
So you’ve joined a new social media site. Fantastic. So you’re at the phase where you are setting up your profile. I bet you are tempted to just use the standard faceless image that they start you off with. After all if you use a picture, that fabled Internet stalker might find you. Here are some reasons why you should always use a picture on your social media profile.
I know I already reviewed this book. This post was one of those that I lost when I was “fixing” my blog. Therefore, I have to repost it so that the information will still be here. Here goes…
I had the privilege of interviewing Linda Bishop on my Radio Show, DeAnna Troupe Teaches Online Networking a while back. She is the author of Selling In Tough Times. I got the chance to read this book before I interviewed her and I must say it was an excellent and timely book. This book simply gives common sense strategies any business owner can use to increase sales. Get your copy of this book today by clicking on the icon below.
Since I decided to stop doing automatic direct messages, I had to come up with another way to give my followers the free twitter guide I’ve been promising. So what I decided to do was to place the guide on this blog. That way I can just tweet the link to the blog. This guide is the same exact guide that I read when I first joined Twitter. It helped me. I hope you get something out of it too. Good luck to you and Happy Tweeting! Just click on the link below to get your free twitter guide. No opt in is needed.
I know a lot of you aren’t that talkative. Now if you are talkative, this post might not apply to you. Don’t let the fact that you aren’t a talker keep you from recording a podcast. It is actually better to record a shorter podcast than a longer one. A podcast should be no longer than 30 minutes. The reason is that you actually want people to listen to and act on the information you are sharing with them.
30 Day PowerBlogger Challenge

Yes I know. I am participating in another challenge. I just can’t help myself. I am like one of those little kids who can’t say no to a dare (although I always said no to dares when I was little).
The culprit behind this challenge is none other than Connie Ragen Green. She’s @conniegreen on twitter for those of you following me on twitter.
So basically the objective is to post thirty 100 word blog posts between now and July 7th. This will be a bit of a challenge for me because I am just not that wordy. So what this means for you, my loyal readers is that you’ll see me post to my blog two times a day on the days that I write in my blog instead of just one. That is the only way that I see myself getting through this. Oh yeah, if you’re a blogger and you want to join me in my insanity, here’s the link with the rules:
You learn something new everyday. I’ve learned that things stay in google’s cache for only a few days. I didn’t copy my blog posts soon enough apparently. When I looked back at the cache, my old blog posts were GONE!!! Oh the horror! So that means I have to try to remember what the heck I wrote in those posts originally or just start from scratch. I think I’ll just have to start from scratch. I will have to post the announcement about the blogging challenge again. That’s the only way for everything to make sense, since I’ll be doing things a little differently than I normally do. Stick around. At least you know my blog won’t be boring…
So by now you know I am just a little bit obessessed with this blog’s search engine positioning. I know it’s a bad thing. I check everyday to see where it is on Google for my keywords. It’s bad. I should probably find a SEO addiction group or something. During the recent battle I had with my blog, I discovered something. Google keeps my blog posts in their cache! That made me a very happy girl. What that means is I can just copy my previous blog posts into my current blog! So what I’m going to do over the next few days is to repost the old blog posts in here with the notation of “This was originally posted on ___date” so I don’t confuse anyone. I just wanted to share that with you. I thought that was pretty neat.
I got my blog back! Yaay. I figured out what went wrong. It was my theme that made my blog die. So I have to find another theme. So for now I am keeping this basic theme up. I’ve got soo much to do today it’s ridiculous. I’ve been reminded of a very important blogging lesson through all of this. BACK YOUR BLOG UP DAILY. I was able to restore most of my blog since I had backed it up sometime toward the end of May, but I lost all of June’s posts. 🙁 Lesson learned. From now on I must remember to back my blog up every day.
