Good Job Tam, didn't read what Sheryl wrote you but just keep in mind content is king, be as specific as you can when describing what you are talking about. and always use anchor text when possible. The words covering the link are describing the link good to change this up some also when posting the same link multiple times.
After you are done with your mini post here, or a comment on a bolg here is a tool that you should use to call in the cavalry and get cashed Pingler.com
. On moderated blog comments I just keep a list of links so I can return and ping them later. It is also good to keep this list to easily find sites again.
I have pinged this already
