I know its been a few days and you've got some good advice from everyone (except for the lovely spammer)...
I always suggest to set-up your own blog first because that would be the center point of all your marketing efforts... It's kind of like your home base.
Out of all the social and article sites out there, your blog is the one place that you can control everything.
That is, if you're using a Self-Hosted Blog.
Ditch the wordpress.com or blogger blog sites, my friend.
They could shut your content down any time that they want.
For a few dollars a month, you can set-up hosting for a self-hosted wordpress.org blog that will eventually become your number 1 asset.
Do this before anything else.
In fact, you can have this done for you for just the price of hosting with Free Blog Factory....
(I use them and they create awesome blog sites, I'm also an affiliate but no links posted in this forum...
Once you set-up your self-hosted blog, you will have to set-up an awesome opt-in offer.
Study other people's blogs. You'll see what looks attractive and what doesn't and you can get good ideas of how to create your offer.
Use articles, videos, etc to point traffic back to your blog and there are some other great resources out there that you can use to get tons of traffic to your blog like TribePro.....
I'm sure you will find some great training inside the marketing system you are using as well. Definitely spend some time inside your training materials under blogging...
If you don't mind taking a small piece of advice, upload a real picture of you on your profile here.
We want to get to know you and not the system you represent. I say that with the kindest thoughts towards you and not trying to be critical. It's just really important that you always brand yourself and your image before anyone else's... or co-brand at least... plus, it's a social thing here.
All my best,
