This is merely a question not necessarily a criticism, but...
what makes you an expert?
You are a new poster to the forum and we know nothing about you. If you have a PhD in biomechanics and have written numerous scientific papers on the causes and treatments of running injuries, then your opinions are likely to be taken much more seriously than if you're 'a bloke on the internet who's read 'Born to Run' and is promoting his blog.'
One handy tip for future reference: people who post the same topic across different parts of RW forums are considered to be spammers until proven otherwise. And yes, I'll post this on your other thread too
Genuinely hope this helps.

Are you a qualified coach?
Well i'm 39 and I started running ~37 years ago... never needed anyone to teach me how to do it...
...by the way, I walked at 7 months
Help is nice, but I think the point is that people don't appreciate newbies just wandering along and basically spamming the forum with the blog...
Which is basically what the initial post is. If you said as an experienced runner I find that doing x, y and z helps then fine, But you don't you just try and send everyone to your own blog... that is SPAM!!
Simples, tell us your great wisdom on the forum and we will probably find it interesting, send us off to your site, which might or might not earn you any money from any advertisements that might be on your website is a no-no.
Hope the friendly advice helps
