I currently write educational articles on the topic of "endurance sports", focusing specifically on triathlons. I specifically focus my topics on people and things that would interest local Salt Lake City constituents, and spend my time bringing visitors to our site by taking advantage of social networking sites such as Facebook, and rss feeds such as digg.com for their ability to do quick marketing.
