Online Marketing

I’m having a crappy day, so I thought I’d make a post about something that goes pretty well for me: online marketing. Online marketing is often called Internet Marketing, or Affiliate Marketing. I like online marketing, because it doesn’t have the negative connotations the other two. Hell, as often as not, I see people doing the virtual head shake of sadness at those poor internet marketers who never make a dime, and snarling at the idea affiliate marketers essentially work on commission.

In the end though, whatever you want to call it, it boils down to this: I find a topic on the internet that people are interested in.

Baked Ravioli

So, I make a kick ass baked ravioli recipe.. And I took pictures of the process, only to find out that half the photos I took never actually stayed on my phone. So, I will present yummy baked ravioli without photos. Next time I make it, I’ll add photos in and remove this.

However, there’s no Buca nearby, and they’re hard to get to. So after some looking online, and some experimenting, I came up with a kick ass baked ravioli recipe. It’s one of the recipes both mine and Pet’s family adore. I get requests for it frequently.

So, if you’ve been there in the last year and like that ravioli, this one is different, but excellent. And it’s easy! who doesn’t love an easy baked ravioli recipe?
