Sweet, thanks for the great resource.

David King July 24, 2009 at 1:21 pm

Those are very great resources…

I think that having a custom designed professional background really set’s you apart…

I have noticed an increase in followers since i have gotten a “real background” and I have also realized that they treat me more serious… I’m seen as more of an expert.

Thanks for the great post!

I look forward to getting to know you better!

David
