Hi. I'm Simon. Inspired by Kyle MacDonald's quest to trade up to a house with only one red paperclip as a start, I thought I'd try a similar project/adventure with a slight twist... Everything has to be in two's or an item that technically comes in pairs! Here goes...

How are things progressing?

I've made some efforts to get links out there, and submitted my URL to Google. Also, joined BlogExplosion, looks like a nifty way to get traffic to your blog if you have one, and made some moves on there. Another way to get more traffic to your site or blog is a link exchange *HINT HINT*...! Whilst on the forums at BlogExchange I found a post about Glass Palace Directory and I have submitted myself to that. All links count, so if you have a blog or site PLEASE PLEASE link to me. It's not like I am sitting back asking others to spread the word or promote this, I've spent hours and hours over the last few days but there's only so much one person can do!

Oh yeah, I'm slowly learning about HTML and stuff and I've managed to insert links and some scripts but I really need to make major changes to the layout and colour scheme! If anyone has any tips, pointers, constructive criticism (I didn't make the template!!) or can offer any help at all please get in touch, by hitting "Comment" at the end of any post and messaging me there. Oh yeah, I know the Adsense looks ugly and out of place, but I've still to find out how to move it somewhere better!

Surfed here through Angels & Demons. A tip: your adsense will never make you any real money. Ads are ugly. Just ditch 'em. I remember when I first started and there's so much to learn with the HTML and getting traffic. Try Blog Mad, too, and technorati.

If you need websites for finding new templates and such, let me know and I'll email you a list.

Welcome to the blogosphere!

I arrived here via Angels & Demons as well. I wish you luck with your project and learning how to set-up your blog. I'm new to it too, so don't really have any tips for you. I'll keep an eye on your progression and how you develop it and the site. All the best. Cheers.

Here from PresentStorm .. I read down through your posts and you had me at "whilst". Good luck with your trading. It will be fun to watch things progress.

P.S. I have no tips for you. Half the time I can't even get my links to work. I am very computer illiterate.
