Wassup With The Link Directory? Why Not List Your Blog?

I’ve always liked the idea of swapping links with other bloggers but have always steered away from it because I thought that those huge blogrolls were so unbecoming. The obvious solution was to have my own link directory which is only possible because I host my own blogs. I decided to go with Reciprocal Links Pro for functionality and ease of use. If you want to add your blog click here or use the link above my blogroll.  If you can’t find a category that is suitable for your blog just leave me a comment with the details and I will get right to it. There are certain other benefits from having Reciprocal Links Pro (RLP) as my links directory; It will create permanent one way links to this blog. I say one way because RLP is actually hosted on another domain This will have a flow on effect of…

I just want to encourage those potential bloggers who are sitting out there on the sidelines wondering whether they should enter the Blogging world. I reckon the thing that is holding you back is that you’re just not too sure what you can blog about. Considering that the web is so big and that there are a whole lot of people out there ready to absorb information I reckon it is safe to say that you could blog about almost anything at all. Take for an example an Aussie blog called Karen Cheng’s Snippets of Life, a blog that has been in existence since around 2000. Karen is thought by many to have reached power blogger status and was even featured on Channel Ten’s News along with ProBlogger Darren Rowse. You are all probably thinking that she is another blogging guru, full of tips, tricks and ways of making a…

Google Sucks And How Inspiration Can Help Your Blog

Inspiration can come in many forms, sometimes it can be because of positive things that happen to you and on other occasions it can be because of something more on the negative side. Take this little poem for example. It will probably never make it into a book of poems and that does not bother me at all because I had fun writing it. It all came about on that dreadful day not so long ago when Google decided to strip my PR4 blogs of their ranking and reduce them to PR0. I was not impressed, ergo the birth of this poem. Google’s like a woman As fickle as can be Use all The SEO you can She’ll crush you like a flea You read all the SEO tactics You apply it to your blog Then those Google pricks Give your Rankings a flog Women like to change the rules…

Are You Maintaining Your Blog’s Profitability?

Maintaining your blog’s profitability is essential if you are serious about making money and all it involves is a little bit of time and effort. I have just learned this the hard way. I have the PrestoGifto WordPress Plugin installed on two of my blogs and having installed and set them up I forgot about them in the hope that they would make me a bit of money. For those of you who are not familiar with this plugin, it sort of turns your blog into a virtual shop by giving your ‘customers’ access to all the products on offer by CafePress. I have just activated it on this blog and I have called my newest store WassupShop. Anyway, I decided to go and check out my stats for my other stores and to my surprise I noticed that they had generated over 5000 clicks. I thought Wow, that must…

Developing Good Blogging Habits Is Essential

I have learned in life that when I am attempting something new, whether it be a new business or tackling a particular job, that it is always best to develop good habits right from the start because bad habits have a tendency to hold us back, and prevent us from reaching our potential. This is especially true for Bloggers and so  every serious blogger should develop good blogging habits if they want to gain and keep a good readership. There are probably a lot of different versions of good blogging habits on the net but these are the ones that I like to adhere to. Make Your Topic Interesting! This is important as you need to grab peoples attention so that they take the time to stop and read your post. This goes hand in hand with a catchy title and for SEO purposes it is also a good idea…

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…
