Maybe the 2nd time with be the charm. I’ve been at this long enough, you think I’d remember not to write the hard copy in real-time; I lose it every time. But, anyway…
Last night, I mentioned that some pretty exciting things were happening, and then Marie mentioned it in one of her comments on the last blog. So, are you ready to find out? 😀 I hope so, because we think they’re pretty incredible!
The first thing that happened is that Lynne figured out that Il Volo Flight Crew is on the major search engines now!!
That’s right! If you go to Bing and search for us, it will bring up our blog, and Google brings up our twitter account. I think that is amazing, especially for a blog that hasn’t even been up for a week yet! It’s proof of how much we love Il Volo and how much our site was needed if we could get onto the internet searches in just two days. 😀
This makes us pretty legit. If people can search for us, they will be stopping by and looking for a great place to join in with like-minded people who love Il Volo. It won’t just be the group of us anymore. We can turn into one of the go-to fan sites for Il Volo!
Which is why we are even more excited about what happened next. In an exchange of e-mails between Myron and Michelle, we were contacted by Team Il Volo. They told us that they had been religiously following the comments at the other site, were glad to hear that we were starting up our own blog and asked to be our affiliate!
We of course said, “Yes”, because we couldn’t think of anything better than to be affiliated with a blog such as theirs.
They have added a link to our blog on their site and started promoting us today via their twitter account. We have returned the favor (you will see that they are noted under Affiliates on the left side of the blog), and ask that we all join together and support them as well.
I hope you guys are excited about the opportunities that have presented themselves. I know Michelle, Marie, Linda, Elaine, Elizabeth and I couldn’t believe how quickly things had happened for us. We have a lot more ideas about how to grow our site a little bit at a time, and we want you guys to be involved too. Like Marie said, if you have suggestions or ideas, please let one of us know!
