Walk A Mile In Another Person’s Shoes

This is a poem that I called “Why Must It be This Way?” and in writing it I tried to imagine what it must be like for an innocent girl on her first date, how she could react and hopefully how she in the end she should react. Perhaps my perspective of this is tarnished ever since I became the father of a daughter even though I do not recall ever acting in such an uncouth manner. It sort of brings to mind the Joe South classic made famous by Elvis Presley, “Walk A Mile In My Shoes”. Perhaps if we could physically do that before making rash judgments that lead to one person hurting another, the world could start to become a better place. Anyway without further ado I present to you Why Must It be This Way? When you asked me out that day I thought it too…

I reckon those of you who read my blog regularly would realize by now how I hold my commentators in high esteem and I how I love to reward them for leaving a comment. Those of you who don’t, well let me list them here for you in order that it may encourage you also to join in the discussions on this blog. Do Follow: First of all, by using the Do Follow plugin I have removed the No Follow tags and so Google will now be able to follow the link, left in the name field when you leave a comment, to your blog or site.

Commenting Etiquette Is Important

When you enter a persons home there are certain rules that everybody follows, little rules such as farting in the presence of your hosts and not making a pig of yourself. Most people know about the etiquette involved when visiting and on the whole they do their best whilst visiting. I have made the analogy before where a blog can be considered the bloggers home and we as guests should follow a common commenting etiquette. We should follow the bloggers, rules if such exist and also monitor the way we behave while commenting. This means to always be polite and not to flame others in whatever comments we leave. We can however fart to our hears content and the hosts will never know. My blog is no different and I have a Comment Policy for all to see. I also have the following added in the comments box so that…

Getting A High Technorati Ranking

Like most rankings Technorati ranks your blog depending on how many other blogs linked to it. If you had a good ranking you would displaying it on your blog in the hope that it would demonstrate to others that you are a blogger with some authority. As I wanted to be one of those bloggers I decided to increase my ranking and I came up with several methods that I pursued with great diligence. They worked so well that I managed top get a Technorati Authority for my Blogsire Blog of over a 100. I was quite happy with this and so I slacked off taking things easy and then I noticed my ranking was slipping. Why? Were bloggers removing my links? Nope, nothing so sinister. It appears that Technorati only counts those links for a period of 6 months, so what was happening was that as the age of…

Some of you may have noticed that I have a new logo, one that I think is pretty snazzy, and it’s all to do with my commenting regularly on other blogs. I’m always on the lookout for blogs that I can leave meaningful comments on and a lot of the time I find one that I like so much that I subscribe to it so as not to miss any updates. Work From Home Business Blog is one such blog and unbeknownst to me I won a competition for being the Top Commentator and that prize was a professionally designed logo, and there it sits for all to see. Thanks Peter for the prize. Yet that wasn’t the only thing that resulted from my commenting sprees. I’ve also got to meet a lot of other bloggers who come back frequently, and on top of that I get a heck of…

Is Timing Of the Essence In Regards To Blog Posts?

This photo is one of many I took in another series of falling drops on my my Photos2Blog blog. Sell photos on photrade | By Sire I have found that in many situations in life, just like capturing this particular in time of the falling drop, that timing is of the essence. If you get the timing right you can usually expect great things, but if you get it wrong there can be a catastrophe waiting to happen. Take the current share market as an example, those who waited too long have either lost a bundle or are forced to sit on their stocks waiting for an increase in the market, whilst those who got out in the nick of time are rubbing their hands with glee as they search the stocks waiting to pick up all the best bargains. One wonders if this can also be true in blogging….

The Meaning Of Life In A Poem

A blog for me is more than just a means to make money, it is also a way of expressing myself. One of the ways that I may choose to do this is through poetry. Don’t get me wrong as I am not a poet in any manner of shape and form, but I do like to dabble in it every now and again. I don’t write many poems and I reckon the reason for that is because I need to be inspired and that doesn’t happen all that often. When it does happen though the words seem to flow fairly easily and I am usually fairly pleased with the results. This is one of those times. I call this one. The Awakening As I lie on the ground Gazing at the myriad of stars Thinking how insignificant I am What am I, but a mote in the universe? I…

Hosting An Effective Blog Contest

I’ve seen a lot of blogs that host contests of one manner or another and usually the main motive for doing so is to gain readership. Sounds like a good idea but I figured there must be more involved than doing a post about it and getting good results. I was lucky enough to come across Prizetastic’s How To Host An Effective Competition as it contained certain information that had never crossed my mind. I mean have you ever thought about the legalities of the competition you are holding? I know the legal aspect of a competion would never have crossed my mind. Honestly the six steps posted by this Aussie blogger, yep us Aussies are a clever lot, could really prove to be quite useful to anyone planning on hosting their own competition.[eminimall] r> Sharing is Cool
