I’m Getting Seasick With All This Oil Rig Hopping!

Dilemmas of Picking My Blog Name

Then along comes coach Alex, (I know he gets a kick out of being called that). Forget about keywords, he says. Set up your blog in your own name and tell your story. Make it about your journey into internet marketing and how to make money on the internet.
