Part One - Shane Melaugh Blogger Interview by Kate Luella (November 2012)
Hybrid Connect - AWESOME   http://budurl.com/HybridConnect (pop up light box to collect emails on overdrive!!)
It was truly a thrill for me to chat with Shane Melaugh of http://imimpact.com/, who also hosts a podcast from his blog.
We chatted about his blogging journey, how his blog came about and how his journey has now made him a full time product creator -- my dream!! 
Shane has now a few very successful products in his catalogue, and most recently one of his latest products "Hybrid Connect" is about to get a new launch with all the finishing touches to the opt-in lightbox (with way too many features to list) being a "must have" list building tool for all bloggers and online business people.  I'm going to set that one up on my site, if you want to see it working, and you can buy it over here (aff link) if you are ready to put your email list building through the roof!  I think I'll do a "Shane Review" (which means "a very thorough review" of the tool in a few months and share it with you, and Shane of course!
PS: This interview has been cut into two interviews to keep them not too long!
