Andy Bailey Takes CommentLuv Up Another Notch

I use commentluv on all of my blogs and Andy Bailey is one of the few bloggers that I subscribe to. I’ve known for awhile that he has been playing around with a  new version of his popular WordPress Plugin and I was really exited when he released the Beta version. I’ve installed it on WassupBlog to put it through its paces and with luck I think it will add another dimension to getting people to comment on individual blogs. What makes this plugin different from the old one is that instead of parsing the last post it now enables you to choose from your last 10 posts. Think about all the times that you wished it hadn’t picked that particular post and how you would have prefered to have shown one that better related to the post you are commenting on. Why not leave a comment and test it…

Marketing Your Business Via The Web – Guest Post

I have always said that blogging was a great way to build up relationships, especially if you take the time to comment on blogs that you happen to visit, it’s sort of like saying ‘hello’ to someone you pass on the street. Something that very few of us do. I know I get a brief shocked expression when I give a cheery ‘good morning’ to a passer by but it usually changes to a bright smile and a reply from the recipient. Anyway it was through my interaction with bloggers that I met Mitch, a very intelligent blogger from America. Mitch had asked me to do a guest post for him and I was more than happy to to whip one up for him. I then thought how great it would be to have a person of his capabilities do one for me and so I tentatively sent out the…

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…
