A Blogger’s View On Google Chrome

Yep, I am one of those guys that just has to try every new gadget, especially when it is free, so first chance I got I downloaded Google Chrome. I am actually typing this post whilst using the Google Chrome browser and I haven’t read any other reviews as I wanted this to be completely unbiased. Good Points My blogs all look great in it. This was a real worry and the last thing I wanted was to start modifying the themes to work with this browser. It was a breeze to set up, no problems at all and seemlessly imported all my passwords and bookmarks. It is bloody fast, it’s like the computer has been turbocharged as so far all the pages load a lot quicker than FireFox or Internet Explorer. Memory usage seems heaps better and it also allocates the memory diferently. FireFox used to increase the memory…

Chitika Has Proven That Their Ads Truly Work

I remember the time I got my first check from Google for my Adsense account, man I was so thrilled, it was just like the time I got my first paycheck. Even though it took over a year it was still a milestone in my blogging career as it proved that it was possible to blog for money and it gave me the incentive I needed to expand and improve my blogs. The thing is that I didn’t want to put all my eggs in one basket as I could see it was bad business sense to rely on just one source of income revenue. So, the search began to find out what other ways existed to add to my Adsense income. I came across Chitika only a month ago but it wasn’t until today that I realized just how good it really was. What made today so special? Not…

Quality Comments Does Bring Results

If you go back through some of my posts, specifically Do You Want More People Commenting On Your Blog?, you will notice that I put a lot of value on the importance of quality comments and how they can build up a growing community. There is also another reason for inviting comments because there may well be many occasions when comments can add so much more to the value of the original post. No matter how much time we put into a post we are only human and we are bound to miss things out or perhaps not even explain certain aspects of the post properly. Comments help to rectify this by allowing us to expand on the original post as well answering questions from our readers. There may even be times when a comment sparks a light bulb situation that leads to an entirely new post. There was one…

This is just a post I put together to have a bit of fun. It’s just to show that blogging can be used as a medium to enjoy oneself. In a time not so long ago, when Rundle Mall first became South Australia’s main shopping district, there lived in the nearby suburb of Elizabeth a typical Aussie couple, Dastardly Darryl and Big Bertha. Just like any other couple who have been married for some years they had settled into a routine where the male works his butt off and the female spends all his money. It wasn’t always like that as things were very different before the birth of Rundle Mall. Big Bertha used to be just like any other woman that stayed home, loyally making sure that the house was clean, the bed was warm and her husband content. Once Rundle Mall came to life and Big Bertha and…

I was Number One On Problogger

Image via Wikipedia Yes I was number one, but not the way you think. Ages ago I read a post on Garry Conn Dot Com on how you could get a whole heap of traffic to your blog from leaving just one comment. The idea is that if you are the very first person to comment on a blog, and if that comment was meaningful and related to the original post you would be bound to get a whole lot of visitors from people reading the post. The other day I was able to put the theory to the test because I actually was the first person to comment on Problogger’s 12 Tips To SNAP Readers Out of Passivity with Calls to Action! I couldn’t believe my luck, and in my rush to to beat everybody else, the comment probably wasn’t as good as it could of been. But heck,…

There is one thing that almost every blogger wants and that is to make their blog more profitable. There are many ways that you can make money via your blog other than by doing paid posts. The most used method is by displaying Google Adsense on your blog. As you get paid every time someone clicks on an ad you want to make sure that you place it in a prominent position on your blog. Adsense is a great way of generating a passive income. Obviously the more visitiors you get the greater the potential of earning money via your google adsense and some other systems I will now mention. Only recently I have been trialing another system similar to Google Adsense which is called Chitika. I must say that I am very impressed as so far it is producing 90% of Google’s income. The best thing is that you…

How To Make A Monthly Income With Your Blog

I read somewhere that those blogs that hit the top do so because the blogger provides the reader something that they desire, and they do it for free. It could be many things including interesting articles, competitions, tips and tricks of the trade, but whatever it is, it is of value to the person visiting the blog. Unfortunately, bloggers like myself do not have the means to run competitions or give away prizes and such, and so we have to rely on the quality of our content or the passing on of valuable information to our readers. This may included blogging techniques or tips and tricks, and on occasions it can even be a way for increasing their blogging or webmaster revenue, which is what this post is all about. I have just come across a particular site that is going to guarantee me a monthly income. This site is…

Do You Want More People Commenting On Your Blog?

When looking back at my blogs I get the feeling that although I am doing all the right things and most of my blogs are getting lots of hits, very few people are taking the time to comment. Now if you’re like me you just have to agree that getting comments virtually breathes life into a blog. Without comments it’s sort of like talking to the wind. If we think of our blog as a room and the readers as visitors to that room then perhaps getting that initial comment would be like what would happen when someone breaks the silence and a conversation ensues. So, what we need is a way to break the ice, and what better way than to offer an incentive and the incentive that I have in mind is that we return the favor by commenting on a post on their blog. Considering the vast…
