Create-Communicate - Promote - Learn (Loop)

Getting popular on the internet is a great thing. Take what you do send it out and listen to the answers back. Learn from what you do.

People will give you feedback if you are willing to listen to it. Even if they say "You Suck" think about what prompted them to say that.

Brainstorm Content Ideas:
Engage your visitors and make them come back. Content will make this happen. Don't worry about repeating yourself. it is sometimes necessary to get the thoughts out there.
