  • I find this article very good, tnx for sharing, social media fails right, i actualy learn how to promote products by social media, i guess you would help me.

  • Thanks for linking to my better product reviews article in your round up. How have you been, been a long time since we ran into each other online.

    • Hi Justin. Welcome.. Yeah it’s been a while. I got involved with my brother with his company in Sao Paulo, and it has been taking me an awful lot of my online endeavors. Coupled with my existing clients, I hardly have time for anything else. How about you. How are things on your end?

      • Same here, day job consumes 50 hours per week, hard to find time for my blog and other online ventures too. Family consumes the rest of my time.
