    I have a friend who has created a website to help 'get off her chest' the fact that she has put weight on.

    She is also very depressed and I have encouraged her to download her story, her feelings in the form of a blog.

    The address is www.newmetoday.com

    I would appreciate any members could visit her site, give her feedback and encouragement.

    THANKS beforehand.

    Just looked her last post and understood that she is on wrong way now.
    Tell her to find info about glycemic index.

    Yeah that could be a cool site for your friend. Definitely tell her to delete the Hello World post. The rest of it looks ok for the type of site it is.

    The biggest thing you should have a talk with her about is to not become too emotionally vested in the website. In other words something like that can be helpful, but she needs to understand that over time it's also likely to get random idiots that'll leave hateful comments just for the fun of it. If that happens she just needs to delete those type of comments rather than enter into a debate, or even worse take it personally.

    That doesn't mean just delete anything negative altogether. Some constructive criticism should be expected, in which case the comments can still be helpful. In that case it's again really important for her not to become too emotional about those types of comments.

    She isn't really so overweight as to become too concerned about it. A daily diary blog can really be helpful for some people, as long as they keep it in perspective. I wish her luck with it all. :cool:

    This is GREAT advice greywolf, I'll let her know about the idiots out there!!

    I appreciate all of your help and support. She is buzzing at the fact she has all these great comments!!

    Thank you

    Any advice as to how she can generate 'organic' traffic? Does she need to submit her RSS feeds or something?

    Thanks all again

    Thanks for all of those that have left comments.

    Unfortunately the whole think has backfired on me. I warned her that the comments might dry up, which they have and she is very disheartened.

    Is there any way I can use the sites rss feeds to help generate traffic? Do I just submit them to rss feed sites?

    I'm going to try a few scrapbox blasts also to see if I can generate some links and organic traffic.

    Thanks for any suggestions
