    Hey All One of my sites is about to get a plug in a NY State newspaper I haven't seen the article yet but it is suppose to come out this weekend. Unfortunately it's just a content site but it's still pretty cool news to me and I just wanted to share with the online family. I've been contacted by a few newspapers about the site including our local paper witch is suppose to give me a plug when they do another story on the topic of my site and USA Today contacted me awhile back but nothing became of that.

    I do have a link to the fundraising webpage I made for my daughters varsity softball team so maybe they will get a few sales out of it. That would be cool. I tried to find what the circulation is on their website, yup they have a website also but couldn't come up with anything. I believe they are owned though by the same company as USA Today.

    Congrats!

    Now, what's the bidding start at for links on your site's front page?

    Thanks SeedyBee, Trust and Leader

    Hmmm, not a bad idea Leader Unfortunately it's a weather site so I would feel guilty about doing that because the traffic would be useless Ok, ya twisted my arm, Joking. I'm banging my head right now trying to think of what ad to put on top. I'm thinking maybe a shoe link to Zappo's seeing how it's a change of seasons??? The girls fundraising site is ink so that knocks my best one out

    Weather equipment! Rain guages, weathervanes, etc.

    That weather store that was at CJ is dead/closed program, but there's a couple of other merchants with that kind of thing, too.

    I don't know if it'll sell from a content site, but it's the most targeted thing I can think of.

    Thanks Leader,

    The site is based mostly on a contest so most of the people that visit aren't really interested in weather supplies I wouldn't think. However the article is going to be about spring so I was thinking maybe sandals and sneakers? I do have a link to my main shopping site so maybe that will get some traffic also. I did just give adsense a shot but it didn't really come up with anything special. Thanks Leader

    Thanks Sandra and Ray It hit the stands today Only a tiny paragraph with my name but it did list the website. Kind of wish it gave a description of the site though. Either way I appreciate the jounalist for taking the time.

    Heidi, Send me a copy of the newspaper please

    Congrats Pakster on getting a local page plug. They work wonders for jumping traffic for a few days as my clients can testify.

    Thanks all and sorry for not responding sooner. I happen to leave my computer on while I stepped out for a couple of hours while someone was babysitting my nephew and low and behold I came back to a virus that had infected 8000+ files . Everyone knows my computer is off limits but someone else was on the play computer so I guess the temptation was overwhelming for my nephew. My fault for leaving it on I suppose. I'm still lodging a full scale war against it and seem to be making some progress on it

    Heidi,

    I'm not sure what section it would have been in but it's no big deal. Only a couple of sentances but still was nice.

    Ross,

    Not in the Post Standard, Yet anyways. I was promised a plus from Sean Kirst though if he does an end of the season article. I'll drop ya a PM when or if it hits the paper . I just realised how close you are to me. About 10 minutes away

    Hey Packy

    I got the paper from my Dad and found the article - nice mention you got

    Do you want me to scan it and send to you or do you want the actual clipping from the paper?

    There are a few of us in the area - DFLSports is nearby, too - maybe we should all meet for an adult beverage some time!
