I'm just an average guy who enjoys writing. I have my own website, but I also write for InfoBarrel. This website isn't as popular as Hubpages, but is definitely an up-and-comer. And instead of building a bunch of backlinks manually, I use SocialAdr. This is a community of bloggers and website owners that post backlinks for other members to major social networking sites like Delicious, Faves, Bookmark4You and many others. And I get my stock photos from 123RF. Other than that, I'm always looking for new ways to increase traffic to my site.
