    Awesome podcast… as always :) I am definitely going to take your advice and invest in a Woo Theme. You’re absolutely right in saying that it would make your blog unique. I think I have the most used free theme there is because EVERYONE has it! (ha!)

    Thanks so much for mentioning my post in this week’s podcast! I really do appreciate it.

    Thank you, Hector – for giving me a shout-out on your podcast! I so appreciate it, and I hope your readers will find the ‘motivational’ wallpapers useful!

    As always, great podcast episode with so much meaty material to act upon. I especially like the point about displaying elements of social proof! That’s something I really need to effect on my own website. (How DO I overcome the fear of Facebook?!)

    Keep up the awesome work, and again – THANK YOU!

    The tips are great and they can ensure that you become not only an authority blogger but a better blogger in general. Content is always king and you have to ensure that your content sticks out because of in depth information and uniqueness.

    By building authority sites (blogs), we are building real business assets that grow in value. When built properly, these high value websites stand the test of time. Because of their higher quality traits, these sites have much more potential to earn backlinks, maintain a high search engine ranking and earn more money.
