One year ago, my father asked me, the young internet entrepreneur, “What’s a blog?” I paused for minute. I had heard the term before … but I couldn’t answer him. I honestly didn’t know. Little did I know that so many people would soon tap into a new type of gold mine and make money with blogs.
There are a lot of opportunities within your blog to promote products or services.

My point is many blogs on these lists available to all are usually nofollow by the time you discover the blogs.
