>>Any thoughts?

Definitely R.A.C.

When I see someone write something like:
" I was going to list my site: http://www.FreeLiveWebsites.com  under your free internet tools area .... a person can get a free website, free hosting and free internet marketing consulting from my site but I wasn't sure if it would be an appropriate listing since http://www.FreeLiveWebsites.com  is my business .... My business is giving away free websites with the potential of business related up-grades down the line. So please advise about that....there really is NO FEE associated with my immediate offer. Money comes into play if someone wants to add a Merchant Account; Shopping Cart etc. later. Personal web pages, hosting and an eMarketing book are all totally free at: http://www.FreeLiveWebsites.Com ", I lose all faith in the advertisement.

Why do you repeat your link 3 times? Don't you think we could see it (and understand what it is) with one display?


I don't object to 3 line sigs as a lot of us promote a number of sites and it is, or should be the tag line to the post.

Networking is not advertising.
Networking is building relationships, connecting on a personal and business level and exploring opportunities to help.
As I say on my main Ryze page:
"If you join my networks, want to network with me, sign my guestbook, or instigate any contact I will enable my instant messenger info for you, should you wish to build a relationship."

This is my first post here, so I would like to include a quick bio by way of introduction.
I'm a nerd.
66 and fell in love with computers in '84 and online in '94.

In past 'lives' I was a web offset pressman (23 years), a tech service rep in the same industry for 8, and retired in '90 to sail my (mostly) home built 54 foot ferro cement ketch "Sea Dove" to "points south", returning to Canada in Oct '94.
Through out my life I have usually had some sort of "sideline" business. Sponsored racing, photography, wood turning, commercial property management, teaching, to name some.
When in the Bahamas I started a marine repair business which I built over the period of about three years.
Services included  everything from minor repairs to a complete refit of a 72 foot steel private sailing yacht, which took over 3 months and $140,000.

After I returned to Canada I started Charie Computer Services which morphed into DotCom-Productions in '98.
My current business is DotCom-Productions which deals with web design, marketing, open source, SEO, affiliate sales and a bit of MLM.
I have been hosting on co-located servers since '98 and now own and operate Zero Grief Hosting.
For the graphic artist. web designer or photographer I sell Fantastic Machines Tile Tools as well as being a reseller for Portrait Pro.
I also designed and market April Point's pet friendly Vacation Cottages.
Kenny Shaw and RICarbide are a couple more of my sites.

On Ryze I run Telling IT Straight and Zero Grief Hosting networks and have a third network in the planning.
I do a weekly series on The Suggestion Box called THURSDAY's Techno babble by Reg and contribute to several other networks, Small Business Think Tank, Let Me Vent, Personal Sovereignty and others listed on my Ryze page.

Wishing you all success in your endeavors.
