It’s great when others promote your site. There are two reasons why someone would do this.

Whether you love to explore the highways and byways across America or perhaps you have traveled extensively in Europe, Asia or the other continents, you probably have found some travel locations “dos” and “don’ts”.

If the cab driver tells you this is your destination you will know if it is the right place. Educate yourself to know approximate distances, so you are not taken advantage of by cab drivers.
Fashion: Are you the next fashionista? Love fashion and want to blog about your favorite fashion trends? Perhaps you’d like to know where your favorite celeb got his/her outfit. Or perhaps whose the designer. Fashion blogging may be just right for you. Note, beauty and fashion blogs often go hand in hand.
I’ll be writing more in the future about basic tips, because I have had so many newbies ask so many simple questions. In sum, remember this. People want to help you.
