Nice stuff... tough to keep track of all that is happening. I end up reading 100 odd blogs daily. Plus there is news. You could also enrich your blog by adding current news on your blog... try out the news widget from widgetmate.com

Great food for thought! Here’s another doh! from the world of “offline/online direct marketing fusion is not quite there yet”.

I own a Char-Broil gas grill. I’ve had it for a few years and I usually have to replace a part or 2 every year to keep it running. This year it was a part I didn’t think my local hardware store would carry, so I ventured online to the Char-Broil Web site.


The Good News (for me): I found the part (took a bit of looking and head scratching) on the Web site, was able to order it online, and got the whole thing done in about 10 minutes.

The Bad News (for Char-Broil): the ENTIRE time I was “self-serving” myself in the Char-Broil online parts department, I was never prompted to buy a new grill! What better time to ask me about my new grill purchase plans and/or offer me a discount on a new grill direct purchase or offer me a coupon that I could use to purchase a new Char-Broil gas grill at a local Char-Broil retailer!

Happy grilling to all!
