Very recently I saw a community discussion here which mentioned a website called HARO which stands for Help A Reporter Out.
Then that same day a blogging friend of mine recommended I sign up. While it looked really good my time is so limited that I never had a chance to sign up.
Today this same friend forwarded one of the emails and told me that I need to have a look at one of the requests. A website that gets 500 000 page views a month is looking for a drug addict in recovery to give a quote on a certain topic.
Oh my gosh, that sounded like it was written for me right? So I quickly signed up and emailed the person that put in the request. Within minutes we were chatting via email and in less than an hour I had confirmation that he was happy with my quotation and he will be linking to my website. I'm not sure if he will be linking to all three of my websites or not but hey if I get one good link there I am so happy!
The website is DA 66.
So I just wanted to share that it is worthwhile signing up! You just get emailed updates of what people are looking for and if something fits in well with what you do then you email a pitch.
