  4. Personally, having a full time job, I couldn't give building websites enough attention to make it successful. What I am doing now is paying attention to my first and primary blog, not paying attention to getting sidetracked with making money and sites.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying those things don't work. I just know being new I should focus on traffic. For me that is the golden key to everything. If I can get that figured out I'm set.

    I am making great connections and finding blog commenting brings the best fruit. From that traffic I'm seeing sign-ups to my list but still battle getting comments. I'm running a competition but nothing yet. Perhaps I should,let it run a little longer and be patient.

    I already asked about the subscribe plugin but I wondered also where3 I can get the 'Tweet this' plugin?

    Hope to hear from you soon.
