----- Editor's note -----
A warm welcome to all the new subscribers. I've been
doing some promotion work for this newsletter, and it
showed offf: 180 new subscribers joined in during the
last 2 weeks. Not bad :-) Nice to have you here!
I also started a whole new web site. It's filled with FREE
web master resources, tools, software, directories, etc...
and it comes with a NEW monthly newsletter too, called:
SmartPromotion. No, I can't get enough of it :-)
Go check it out here:
Hey, I got interviewed in "Sites, Biz and Zines"! You can

BTW, if you find that there are too many ads in this issue,

Next time we'll be back to normal.
