I am too busy trying to make a living online. I guess I could outsource it, is that what you do?
Well there are ways to around it. I sign up to all the free blogging platforms (wordpress,tumblr,blogger etc) and then sign up to Posterous.com (also a blogging platform).
Then I link the posterous account to auto-post to all my blogs (its simple to do when you login to your posterous account).
So every time I make a blog post - It posts everywhere automatically along with any links, linking back to my main website, hosted by a web hosting company.
PM for any help on that - or if you have questions on it. Dont want to hijack the thread which is about web hosting =)
