    Damn! I pasted this link: writeupmylife/com/2012/03/07/tamson-weston-pitch-contest-winners/ and it didn’t work. :(

    BUT … do not fear! I found it anyway.

    I thought the title of your blog (What makes a good pitch? Some great advice. | Helen Ross writes) doesn’t seem to be well optimized for exactly what the blog post is regarding. Hit me back on StevenLMunos@teleworm.com if we want any help with your own on page Search Engine Optimization! Would definitely be glad to help such a awesomely well blogger :-)
