  • Great podcast, Yaro. I love the interviews you do, because they’re always informative. There are a lot of podcasts out there that just talk about the news, so it’s nice to listen to the ones that teach you something.

    I actually just added a newsletter to my blog in this last week, so it’ll be interesting to see what I can do with it. I don’t plan to market any products directly to the list, but just using it as a way to remind people of my site and put some links to recent posts should help increase return traffic.

    P.S. Have the gal from your program who was looking for garden blogs to guest blog on or trade links with send me a note. 🙂 I have a lawn & garden section on my blog.
