Default Re: A smart idea...


Seems to me you've asked this question on another board. Doesn't matter. :)

My "AboutMe" page has had a great impact on my web site, and brought it from a stinkin' 3-5,000 "hits" a month, to over 1,000 Unique Visits PER DAY!

Build it, put it up, and stand back.


(Oh, ya.. hasn't hurt my wallet either!)
