Huddle Allowing People To Collaborate Online

I love the English language because some words have so many meanings it can confuse the crap out of anyone trying to learn English. There are words that sound the same but mean something entirely different. One example that comes to mind are the words threw and through. There are also many words that can have several meanings, one that comes to mind is huddle. A huddle can be a person who draws themselves into a crouch or it can be a group of people that crowd closely together. In sports a huddle is when the coach or captain of the team gathers them all together for a pep talk or to discuss strategy. I’ve chosen a nice image to illustrate this type of huddle. The reason I chose this picture should be quite evident to those who know me. But I didn’t get you here just to look at…

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I wrote one of those ‘killer posts’, not that I consider it one of my better posts, but because of one thing or another it went viral for a short time. That post was called Why I No Longer Link To The Likes Of ProBlogger And John Chow, and to date it’s had 217 comments, close to 4000 view and sits at the top of the ‘Popular Post’ ladder. What sent the post viral was the involvement of a couple of ‘A Listers’, and I’m not mentioning any names so that I don’t get accused of link baiting again. Those very same A Listers said that the reason they didn’t respond to their commentators was because they ran their blogs as a business and taking the time to reply to comments would only hurt their business. Anyway, that post led…

Membership Drive For Where Bloggers Meet

I had hoped that my post introducing my new forum Where Bloggers Meet, would entice some of my readers to join, but unfortunately most people did not take up the offer. To those of you who did join I thank you, to those others I wish to point out some important points as to why you should join.

I am very fortunate to have two Heathers in my life, I’ll call them Heather I and Heather II. Naturally Heather I was the first, a most delectable woman who has a wonderful blog called Happymaking, her last post Fiction Or Bust, all about her aspirations of writing her first novel. This post is partly due to her as she once commented on one of my posts; Sire, it was wonderful to read more about you. I love finding out what makes people tick, why they do the things they do. Especially people I know. Then there is Heather II. I must be totally honest here in admitting that at first I thought that Heather II was Heather I, I just thought that she had changed her avatar. Being the dumb ox that I am it took me quite awhile before I realized that I wasn’t talking to Heather I…

The Morning Glory Cloud And Anna Creek Station

I love Australia and so in this post I want to share a couple of things that make Australia unique. The first is called Anna Creek Station. I’ve heard on more than one occasion how Texans always boast as to how everything in Texas is bigger than anywhere else, well that’s only because those Texans haven’t been to Australia. I’ve had a few relatives come over from Italy and they usually land on our front doorstep wanting to be shown Australia. Yep, sure, as if we could just hop in the car and drive them around over the week end. They just couldn’t comprehend the size of Australia until I explained to them that we could fit the whole of Italy comfortably into Victoria, and once I showed them Victoria on the map I think it finally dawned on them. OK, back to Texas and Anna Creek Station. The biggest ranch in…

Winners, Those Who Never Give Up

I thought that perhaps my last post, The Honest Truth About Blogging For Money, would put some people off blogging, but you know, I’m cool with that because people who aren’t prepared to put in the hard work to succeed should give it up. Actually if all they all pulled out today it would make it better for the rest of us. Truth be told making money from blogging isn’t easy at all, but it can be a very enjoyable, especially if you enjoy writing, and for all of you thinking not to take it up because writing is not your forté, it was never mine either until I took up blogging and discovered it to be something that I love. In regards to making money, just because most of us will probably never get to be six figure earners, or who like myself have no wish to be a…

Beware Scraped Comments And Fake Trackbacks

Only last week it was brought to my attention that someone had been scraping, as related in Has Your Blog Content Been Stolen, my posts, and although it may well have been happening before it didn’t bother me because I was completely unaware of it, and like they say, ignorance is bliss. I have to admit I think I took it pretty well, I wasn’t all that pissed but even so I knew something had to be done, which brought me to my next post, the Update On Stolen Blog  Content. Who would have thought that someone would stoop to stealing the very comments on your own blog? It happened to me today, someone left five comments on five different posts. As is my want I always follow the commentator to their blog so that I could repay their kindness by reciprocating with a comment of my own. Imagine my…

Why I Will Never Be A ProBlogger

I’ve just been over to The InfoPreneur where I read his post, My Promise To You. In this post he’s outlined how he intends to conduct himself as a blogger, a lot of which I am in total agreement, many of which I’ve either posted about or left a comment on another blog. His post got me to thinking about probloggers. To me a problogger is someone who has attained independence via his blog, enabling him to leave his day job so as to concentrate on his blogging full time. He is now a Professional Blogger. When thinking of probloggers I usually tend to think of a person who’s earning a six figure income, mainly because that’s what most of them tell you. This six figure income is what attracts many people to the blogging in the first place. The thing is that all that money does not come from blogging alone. Many…
