The learning curve for blogging is a rather winding course. To increase visits to the site I was advised to try a few different things; one being writing articles on a magazine site. This I have done, and the following articles have been published at http://ezinearticles.com the following articles are in their shopping and product review section with articles written in the pen name MacDonald Innes.
Hope this works, if you like the articles please let me know or go to the ezine web site and rate the article. Thanks
