Of Easter, PR Updates And Other Things

First off I would like to wish everybody a Happy Easter. I’ve been listening to the radio a lot, as I am wont to do, and I’ve noticed a lot of people complaining how they are tired of us Christians forcing our ways onto them, how they are going to eat meat on Good Friday and they hope the smell coming from their barbies are going to make us jealous. :lol_tb:

Firstly, as a Christian I’m not at all fussed whether you eat meat on Good Friday or not. I decide not to and as it’s a choice that I’ve made, so the whiff of steak sizzling on a barbie has no effect whatsoever. I also don’t push my ideals onto others so if you choose to not believe in Jesus and all that he’s done for us, that being that He died on the cross so that those who believed could be saved, then that is fine also.

I know that nothing I can say can make a person a believer, only God can do that, and so I don’t try. I remember Saul of Tarsus who hated Christians, doing all that he could to persecute them, who one day became the strongest of believers. I reckon when God finds someone who has it in them to be a good Christian He will send them a sign, but then it’s up to that person to do with it as he will.

So, if you don’t believe in God, that’s fine, at least use the Easter period to spend some time with your family.

As to PR updates it seems that once again I’ve been given the Google Nod as Google has lifted this evil dofollow blog to a PR 4, once again reaffirming my post The Myth That DoFollow Leaches Your PR! Having said that it could be that it also has a lot to do that I heavily moderate my comments deleting those that I feel do not add something to the post. Yes it’s more work, and yes some people may not like it, especially those that get deleted, but then all they have to do is try a little harder and their comment will be accepted to the benefit of all.

I would also like to thank Jannie for selecting me as one of the 18 reasons why people should subscribe to her blog :devil_tb:   If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like spending a whole lifetime of chasing hogs, ropin’ wild turkeys and jumpin’ nekkid into the cement-pond at night you will want to read her blog.

Anyway, the family is starting to wake up, the wife’s made me a coffee and once I’ve had that we’re off to Church to celebrate Easter and then off to some family get togethers to celebrate our the closeness of our family and our faith in our Saviour, Jesus the Son of God.

  1. Wow! Your blog has become very pink. Nice work on the PR update, guess that really does go to show that do-follow does not affect your PR as long as you are getting the links back in as well.
    .-= Tom@Cheap Article Writers´s last blog ..Unique, Premium or Free? Themes and Your Blog =-.

    1. It’s only Pink because of Easter Tom, once that’s over I will simply click the mouse and it will magically change back to the usual theme.

  2. Yay! *big hugs* Congrats on the PR upgrade! You’ve totally earned it!

    I’ve got to agree that heavily moderating comments really is the only way. Infact I think its the only way whether or not a blog is dofollow. Guilt by association carries heavy penalty!

    1. You little ripper, it so happens Kimberly I love hugs so they were really appreciated. Sorry if I groped a little while returning the hugs :devil_tb:

      I reckon the reason some blogs go nofollow is so they don’t have to worry about moderating comments. Not stating a fact there Kimberly, just a theory of mine that I just made up :laugh_tb:

    I always thought the fish thing was only a Catholic thing. No matter; I eat whenever and whatever, which of course my wife fights when it concerns desserts.

    Enjoy your holiday with your family!
    .-= Mitch´s last blog ..Workshop/Webinar In May =-.

    1. You could be right there Mitch. I only referred to Christian is general because that’s how the talk back radio referred to them.

  4. Wowsers, like heavy syrup you pour oit on there, good job! lol

    I grew up in the most catholic of catholic households, so I do know what’s what…being the carnivore I am, it twasn’t easy. lol

    DE scored a 2 on the home page, 3 on the about page and 1’s-2’s on many inside pages, woohoo! Very sweet, considering it’s young age.

    Congrats on your 4!

    1. Thanks Dennis. I’ve never thought to check what anything but the home page ranks and I’m not even going to waste my time finding out as it doesn’t interest me.

      I don’t find lent hard at all. It’s only one day and there are people all over the world who go out with a whole lot more for so much longer and not by choice.

      1. Hmm, when did they chop 39 days off lent?

          1. OK then, that was a bit of a shock to the system. lol
            .-= Dennis Edell @ Direct Sales Marketing´s last blog ..Will DEDC Comments Remain Do-Follow? It’s Up To YOU! =-.

    1. Same to you Glen

  5. Great job, I feel you on this one. I believe that when we choose to share the “gospel” – it should be done with as less words as possible.

    And good plug for Jannie because I’m on my way over there!

    Happy Easter to you!

    1. Yep, people don’t like having things shoved down their throat, and when you do it they go in the opposite direction. Thanks for dropping by Kissie

  6. It’s going to be a great day. I’m taking a few of my bounce houses to our family event. As for PR, Google lifted the site I”m working on to a 3. I don’t really pay attention to PR though any more. Traffic and conversions! Happy Easter!
    .-= Anthony @ Innovatively Simple´s last blog ..The Left Turn Lane Was Created For ME! =-.

    1. Congratulations Anthony, and what the heck is a ‘bounce house’?

      1. A bounce house is that jumpy thing that you see at birthday parties, carnivals, etc. I’m sure you’ve seen them somewhere.
        .-= Anthony @ Innovatively Simple´s last blog ..The Left Turn Lane Was Created For ME! =-.

        1. :doh_tb: Of course I have, I just didn’t make the connection. :wallbash_tb: :lol_tb:

  7. Belated Easter Wishes to you :) Why google has updated the PR especially on the bank holiday week? Do you have any idea about that? I dont guess its an easter gift :D Yes my website got an increase in PR :) So many of my inner pages got PR now. Its great and I want to celebrate. Thanks for writing up this post. Only after reading this I came to know that google updated the PR. Thanks and I am sharing so that it get the necessary spread. Ciao.
    .-= Craig@Car Rentals New Zealand´s last blog ..Rugby World Cup Car Rentals =-.

    1. Nope, no idea at all except that from my experience Google does whatever it wants whenever it wants. :smoke_tb:

    That’s Right Sire, You Said It! lol

    Like Mitch, I thought Lent was a Catholic tradition where they don’t eat meat, but I’m no religious expert. All I know is my wife and me enjoy Lent every year because that’s when the Big Boy restaurant has the all you can eat seafood buffet. We’re so classy lol pictures on my Flickr :)

    I’m like you, to each their own when it comes to beliefs and I respect the fact you don’t push it on others.

    Congratulations on the page rank increase. I stayed at a three but if I was in charge of it I would have dropped mine to a one or less. I do very little to create links.

  9. Happy Easter, indeed! It is wonderful to see a blogger so embrace his/her Christianity and personal savior, Jesus — in a blog post. You and your family enjoy church this Sunday. I can’t make it for personal reasons, but God knows I’ll be in worship service some other time.

    My wife said she got some Easter eggs for me — as she handed a bunch of big red radishes to me. Not Easter eggs, but still sorta round, colorful, and good

    ..

    1. Thanks, the service was really quite good. I should go more often but I am pretty slack in that department.

    1. Right back at you Peter.

  10. I like the fact that you moderate your blog’s comment, it’s brings seriousness to commenting. I mean some people just post comments for the sake of links or just to appear as Top commentators. If you read an article and have nothing beneficial to add, i think it will be right to just move on.There will be other articles you can add points to. Though appreciating the writer’s effort by dropping one line Thank you message is encouraging, but i don’t think it’s right just to leave a comment that says ‘Thank you, nice post’

    It’s also a good thing that you let people know what you don’t want or allow in your comments, so they stay off it. It is not polite to just delete people’s message without forewarning them

    1. Hey Karo, I decided the moment I went dofollow that I would only accept the best of comments as I knew this would be beneficial to this blog.

      There are times when I allow short comments and they’re normally allowed because I know the blogger and I know they’re not there just for the link.

      1. I agree with you Sire that you make exceptions when you know the person’s intentions.

        When you think about esther, have you ever wondered how it affects your business success? I was thinking deeply about the meaning of Christ death for mankind and it occured to me that there is a lesson we can take from Jesus’ sacrifice and apply to our business success. So i did an article titled ” Lessons of esther to our home business success” it’s quite interesting, i think you should link this article to it to give your readers something more to think about than just the esther meal (lol)

        1. I’ve never heard of esther so I can only assume it’s the same as Easter. I read Lessons of Esther to our home business success and I agree that starting a business does require sacrifice. You also need to know when to get out because not all business work out well and I’ve seen some people go bloke because they didn’t get out until it was too late.

          1. Hello Sire, thanks for pointing out the spelling error, i don’t understand how i could have spelt Easther as Esther, ofcourse i meant Easther. I have updated it though,so there’s a change in the permalink,this is the updated link Lessons From Easther to our Home Business Success

            And yes i agree that one should know when to give up on a business, but before doing that you must be sure you’ve giving it your best

            I must commend your fast response to readers comments, it’s really encouraging. Most times when i comment on some blogs and even request that the blogger gets back to me with an information, i never get feedback. So i really commend your effort, i believe a blogger should have a good relationship with it readers

            1. No worries Karo, and you’re almost there with the spelling as it’s Easter and not Easther. ;)

            2. This is really funny, i can’t believe i’ve had to edit one word twice, where is my head! I’m really sorry everyone for having to edit the article link twice, i guess it happens sometimes. I also edited the title so it’s now “Home Business Success-Helpful lesson from Easter” bear with me please and thanks Sire

            3. No sweat Karo, you’d be surprised at the mistakes I make. Just ask Mitch.

  11. Happy Easter Sire I hope you had an excellent day and chowed down on some excellent food. Big day here at Wassup Blog with the Google Page Rank showing you luv with the PR4, not too shabby for a Do Follow Blog huh?

    Looks like more and more of those myths about Do Follow Blogs being easily leached of PR isn’t all that true at all.
    .-= Extreme John´s last blog ..Tanning n Smoothies Closes, Extreme to Honor Tanning Packages =-.

    1. Thanks John. It was a good Easter mate and as usual I ate way too much. Still, it was good to get together with the family and all. Hope yours was was just as good.

      As to the Myth, yeah I reckon it’s busted :tongue_wink_ee:

  12. Serious pinkage. Serious.

    Two of my newer blogs were converted to dofollow this past quarter. Once stayed the same in PR, the other went up. And, of course, the one that stayed the same is the one that had the most effort! Personally, I think PR is a bunch of crock. I have a 5, 4, 3, 2, and 0 — and the rank seems only very remotely related to the content.
    .-= Alison Moore Smith@Easy Blog Setup´s last blog ..WordPress Backup: A Two-Step Process =-.

    1. Not any more Alison, now that Easter is over I’ve changed the appearance of the theme.

      As to PR being a crock, I totally agree that’s why I keep telling people to forget about it and once they do they will enjoy blogging a whole lot more.

      Thanks for dropping by Alison and I hope you make WassupBlog a regular stop.
      .-= Sire´s last blog ..The Lighter Side Of Blogging =-.

    and congrats for a PR 4
    keep up the good work bro:)
    .-= Dev | Technshare´s last blog ..Building an SEO Daily Schedule =-.

    1. Thanks Dev, you know what they say, better late than never.


  14. Twitter:
    Congrats on your PR4 increase – you deserve it :)

    Regarding the whole Good Friday thing – people just need to think about something else than religion. I don’t care if people are christians, muslims, etc., but we all have one earth to share so it’s important to respect eachother.
    .-= Klaus @ TechPatio´s last blog ..Review: Sony MDR-NC300D Noise Canceling Earbuds =-.

    1. Respect for each other is so important it could resolve so many issues in this world. Too bad there isn’t enough of it going around.

  15. You know me always better late than never. I hope everyone had a great Easter and congratulations to you, Sire, and all our dofollow CommentLuv KeywordLuv blogging friends whose pagerank was recently increased in spite of our “evil” dofollow ways.

    You are right you know (about God) calling people. Jesus did not have his Apostles going door to door handing out fliers. Churches that are profit centers seeking more tithers do that.

    Those who are called and by their own free will choose to do His work shine like beacons to those who are seeking Him. Hounding people is never necessary. The peace He gives is sufficient for those who are interested in hearing more to find us.

    I’m off to “meet” Jannie now. Thanks for the tip.
    .-= Gail @ KeywordLuv´s last blog ..KeywordLuv: How Using It Benefits Us All =-.

    1. Easter was good thanks Gail and I hope yours was the same.

      “Our ‘evil’ dofollow ways”, now that’s funny :laugh_tb: Reckon we showed em huh?

      As to Jesus, now there’s someone that everyone should learn to follow.

  16. As a Christian, I agree that we need to sacrifice and not eat meat on Good Friday. Let us give this day to praise and thanks to God for sacrificing His life for our sake. If God died on the cross for us, how much more to be able to sacrifice a day for Him by not eating meat.
