If you enjoy any of the articles, advice or guides on this site, please help support this blog by having a go at one of the following. It only take a few seconds and a couple of clicks and you really will be helping me out and doing this site a big favour. Just a small effort from a few of our readers will go a long way and allow me to continue building this site for the benefit of the guitar community.
Here’s how you can help.
Subscribe to my Feed
The easiest way you can help is by subscribing to my Rss feed. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Rss feeds, they are simply a way of getting the latest updates or new content of a site to those who sign up. They are totally free and automatically delivered to the user via email or to the users feed reader. Click here to learn more about Rss feeds and the benefits of subscribing to them.
Please subscribe to my feed, it will really make my day.
Stumbling an article or page you like on this site is also one of the best and easiest ways you can help out.
If you’re not sure what stumbling is, then go and check out StumbleUpon.com, sign up for a free account and download the tool bar. It will only take a minute.
Stumble Upon is a great site that lets you randomly traverse the net finding great web sites that you never knew existed, with one click of a button. It’s really good fun and totally addictive. Clicking the stumble button will throw up loads of bizarre web sites made by all sorts of weird and wonderful people that you would never have found had you not stumbled upon them.
You can set your stumbling preferences to throw up sites geared to your own likes such as humour, religion, politics, music, alcohol, history and loads of other categories.
The good thing about stumbling is that when you come across a site you like, you can click the thumbs up button which lets stumble know you like that sort of stuff, and it will make efforts to show you more sites of a similar nature in future.
If a few of you thumbs up or stumble an article of mine every now and then, it should push a few people my way, and help increase the traffic to this site, and that’s one of the best ways you can help.
If you are into your social book marking sites such as Delicious, Faves, Spurl, Simpy, Linkatopia etc. then bookmark one of my articles. This will let others know this site exists.
Social bookmarking is when a user keeps a list of their favourite sites in a free online account at a social bookmarking site such as Delicious or Faves etc.
The benefits of social bookmarking are not only that you can access your list of favourites from any location, not just your own home PC, but you can also view other peoples’ bookmarks to see their favourite sites. This is great for discovering sites that other people who have the same interests as you (such as guitarists, or teachers etc.) regularly visit.
Digging a page, is simply submitting a page to the Digg web site and voting or commenting on the content. If enough people digg my articles, it could lead to more traffic for this site. Go and get a free Digg account and simply click the digg icon at the bottom of one of my posts. I’d really appreciate that.
Simply saving a page on this site as a favourite in your own web browser is also a good way of helping this blog. Google knows everything, and the more times this blog is favourited, the more Google favours us.
Tell Your Mates and Leave a Comment
If all that seems like too much effort, then simply telling your mates or leaving a nice comment on one of my pages will also go a long way to helping this blog become successful. It’s all about traffic and doing any of the above will tell Google that you think this site rocks and they’ll send others here to find out.
So go on, please take a few seconds out of your day and help make this blog a success.
I’ll really appreciate it, and you’ll make my day.
