Creating Value: The not so fine line between self promotion and canned ham

April 10, 2013

I would have to agree completely. I tend to delete all comments that are just people spamming trying to get a link. All bloggers could learn from this.

However, I cannot see the point of following a blog, then not reading the posts. I apologise if this is all a bit ‘old hat’ for most of you, but it is new to me, so I am going on about it a bit. To those who follow blogs, but do not really follow them, can I suggest that you unsubscribe?<

    Keep up the good work, your blog is maturing well, and you are obviously enjoying it. regards, Pete.
