Some confusion going on in my brain... There is so much involved w/each website: posting articles everywhere, posting to your blog every day, driving traffic w/constant twitter tweets, facebook, squidoo, myspace, etc, and that's just ONE site. How can you ever get to the point where you have multiple sites, all functioning properly and productively - even perhaps be...(I'm afraid to even say the word...) AUTOMATED as some marketers claim they can do? Or are those automated sites only traditional websites for a specific product or service whereas blogs are like babies and need constant attention? Maybe any semblance of automation is an unachievable dream? Is it possible to have a combination of the two methods w/out losing your marbles? (lol) Or may there is no such animal as 'automated' in the successful IM world. Your thoughts and experience, please?
