Wassup? CommentLuv Now Working, You Little Beauty

When I first started this blog I spent a long time trying to find a great WordPress Theme because I wanted it to be just right, and truth be told I love the theme that I finally settled on. I later found out that Andy Baily’s CommentLuv Plugin wouldn’t work, and I really wanted to reward my readers for leaving a comment. For those of you who don’t know, Andy’s plugin rewards you by displaying a link to your blog’s last post and I know how bloggers like to promote their blogs. Anyway, no matter what I tried I couldn’t get it to work. Then I remembered that Brian’s Threaded Comments plugin used its own comments.php and viola it worked a charm. So now, not only can you get a little link love, you can also reply to a particular comment as this blog now supports nested comments. Also don’t…

Excuse me young man, what is a blog So many talk of it I am simply agog Is it something that I can eat Please tell me, that would be a treat No worries pop, it’s a diary of sorts Don’t get so stressed, don’t eat your shorts People record their thoughts and dreams Businesses may even take it to the extreme But why do they waste their time I’m sure they do not make a dime Why would you waste so much effort I am sure they sell themselves short Are you kidding me you silly old coot People like ProBlogger are makin the loot They make so much they quit their jobs They work from home to make a bob That makes no sense I am bemused Even more than that I am confused How can a blog make you money That’s like believing in the Easter Bunny…

I have been a paid blogger, in that I’ve been paid to do posts advertising certain products and services, and I have learned over the years that there are a whole lot of advertisers out there willing to pay good money to have their links and selected keywords out on the blogosphere for the search engines to pick up on. They do this because that realize the potential for exposure that blogs represent and knowing this has led to the emergence of sites such as Pay Per Post, Blogsvertise, Smorty, Review Me and a myriad of others that are willing to act as a medium for Bloggers and Advertisers, and doing quite well out of it as well. Advertisers will pay a minimum of $5 to hundreds of dollars for a post of up to three hundred words depending on the PR (PageRank) of the blog. The problem is that…

If there is one thing in common that all my blogs have, apart from the best content , its the fact that they all contain posts of my favorite jokes. The thing is that I just can’t help it, I love jokes and I love to tell them. According to my kids though, I should learn not to laugh at my own jokes but how can I not when that are so damn funny. Anyway, to cut a long story short, this blog will follow the general trend and it will have a ‘Funny Posts’ category. If you like a good laugh once in awhile, and believe me laughter is the best medicine, then I suggest you pop in once in a while and get that smile back on your face. Todays joke is about three old codgers who are standing around discussing all the bad points about growing old….

I truly believe that if you want to show the world that you are a serious blogger then you should really host your own blog. Just think about it for a minute. If someone was going to advertise on a blog or ask someone to write a post for them who would be their first preference, a self hosted blogger or one that opted for the free blogging platforms such as myspace.com, typepad.com, xanga.com, blogspot.com, livejournal.com, wordpress.com, and vox.com. But it doesn’t all have to be about money, so let’s look at some other reasons why you should host your own blog. Security: This is very important. Imagine spending months or even years developing your own blog only to have it yanked out from under you and being left with nothing. It has happened and I know because I lost two blogs in this way, one that was hosted on…

Welcome to Wassup Blog, my latest blog. My blogging name is Sire and I am an Aussie who has been blogging for some time. I am not one who sticks to ‘niche’ blogging as I find these too restrictive and so Wassup Blog will cover many areas including, blogging tips, humor, news, blogging for money, SEO, affiliates and whatever I consider to be either interesting or important at the time. Like all my blogs I encourage comments from my readers and to facilitate this I have incorporated such WordPress plugins as commentluv, and dofollow. If you do comment on one of my post you can be assured that I will in return comment on one of yours. Having said this, I would still like quality comments and I will delete those comments that are I consider spam. To encourage this I have installed a plugin that I have set to…
