When you read featured posts in the AM on your iPad, you can get more comments as an agent if you link to other posts like you have done. You are limited to the first ten posts for comments but this gives more reading opportunities hence more comments. Thanks for the great info this morning,

Thanks folks for stopping by.  Cheryl, regarding the iPad.  I have an iPad too and love it!  It was amazing to see the number of folks at RainCamp with iPads.

Colleen, what is Promote 120?  I have to say, people "stalk me", in a good way,  on Facebook.  I can go to an event, and have 5 people come up and tell me what I've been doing.  I try to be funny when I post, so people go to my site for a laugh. 

Love to make people laugh!

Hi Cindy,

The "Promote 1:20" was a reference to how much self-promotion to do in social media.  In other words, promote yourself once in 20 posts.  Of course, there is not science to the ratio.  The point is, avoid too much self-promotion.  :)
