One thought on “About Chiropractor Doc Joe Leonardi

  1. Hi,

    We just came across your site and was wondering whether you would be interested in a free article. We are interested in doing a guest post on your site as we feel that we could add some value to your site with a unique article.

    We have a website in the fitness and exercise market (http://itsabouttreadmills.com) and would be able to write a unique, informative article that would suit your audience.

    The type of article we would have in mind would relate to “tips” “How to’s” etc and would be a minimum of 500 words.

    All we ask in return is to include 2 or 3 links in the article back to our website.

    If you are interested please let me know and I will get to work writing up this article for you.

    Thank you for your time, we look forward to hearing from you very soon. :)
