Think You Know Ana Hoffman?

Ten Questions:  Ana Hoffman This week, I’m continuing my “Ten Questions” series with internet traffic diva Ana Hoffman.  Ana’s Traffic Generation Cafe is an incredible website with lots of great content.  She was kind enough to answer my ten questions – so enjoy the post! 1. What made you choose traffic generation as a theme for your site?  Is it something you struggled with yourself?

Ten Questions: Dave Malby

I’m starting a new series on the blog called Ten Questions.  The plan is to spotlight interesting people who I have discovered on Twitter, Facebook, or even blogs.  I’ll send them 10 questions and post the answers.   It should be interesting! To lead things off, I sent my questions to Dave Malby.  I came across Dave when I first got into Twitter.  I was amazed that he had such a large following, but still managed to interact with everyone.  Read on and see what you think… Ten Questions:  Dave Malby 1.  Your Google profile lists your occupation as:  Inventor/Musician/Photographer .  Are those in any particular order? No, I am also a Real Estate investor and entreprenuer but they allow only so much space on the bio 2.   You invented the Pet Rock Training Leash – do you still have any of them around? That was 1975 .. No. 3.   I discovered you by way of Twitter.  Seems you have quite a following?  What’s the secret? Being unique, engage with people and follow back who follow you. 4.  I miss your old Twitter profile pic – with you pointing at the camera.  Any plans to revive that one at some point?
