This is a good blog and the likely show to morepeople or you'll search you'll end up in search results. If you have backling,so you can have more than one you get it more than two.

...calld, the action. I see too manypodcasters saying check out. My Patriot. Go to my facebook page sign up for myemail, Lis wash my car. Take me to the store. It's too many things. It causesWHATI's called paralysis. Bianalysis people want to do one thing, so,whatever the one thing you want them to do, the most you're Gongna want to putthat at the end, and usually it's good to have a link there.
