The Lighter Side Of Blogging


If anyone was to ask me what the purpose of this blog was I would tell them it was to entertain and instruct it’s readers. I write not only to show others how to make money on the Net by posting all the different sites I’ve tried, telling them the honest truth about my experience, I also like to share my blogging tips and SEO findings.

Trouble is I’m the sort of person that needs a bit of variety in my life, it can’t be all work and no play and so I like to run this blog the same way. That’s where the entertainment comes in. It could be a short story, something that I thought was funny and so posted it in the Funny Post category or something that I posted just for the fun of it.

All in all I’m trying for a package that will please a large majority of people, and while I hope they appreciate what I do it also helps to keep my blogging interest up.

Today I would love to share a couple of jokes with you. The first one is about life savers.

A teacher decided that she would treat her class by incorporating Life Savers in her lesson. She showed the kids the different colors and they began to identify the flavours by their color:

Red………………….Cherry
Yellow………………Lemon
Green………………Lime
Orange ……………Orange

Finally the teacher gave them all HONEY lifesavers. None of the children could identify the taste.

The teacher said, ‘I will give you all a clue. It’s what your mother may sometimes call your father.’

One little girl looked up in horror, spat her lifesaver out and yelled, ‘Oh my God! They’re arse-holes! :lol_tb:

The teacher had to leave the room!

It constantly amazes me what our kids pick up at school, but imagine how the mother must have felt when her daughter came home from school with this little story.

Little Sally came home from school with a smile on her face and told her mother, Frankie Brown showed me his willy today in the playground!’

Before the mother could raise a concern,
Sally went on to say, ‘It reminded me of a peanut.’

Relaxing with a hidden smile, Sally’s Mum asked, ‘Really small, was it?’

Sally replied, ?No… Salty.? :innocent1_tb: :laugh_tb:

Mum fainted.

OK, last but definitely not least, you may recall the post Necessity The Mother Of Invention And How It Relates To Blogs where I pasted a video clip of an ingenious invention, a fridge that would fetch you a beer? Well that’s nothing compared to this crazy inventor that entered a robotic mini-fridge in a Robo Bash contest.

The truth is I love jokes which is why I have a section just for jokes called Comedy Corner in my blogging forum.

First off I would like to mention that I’m not all that fussed with either of them, but of the two I much prefer Alexa. The main problem I have with Google‘s Page Rank is the way it seems to dominate some bloggers lives. They are so taken up with trying to improve their PR that it affects their blogging style, or worse still, ruins their blogging experience. I noticed long ago that I became a much better and happier blogger once I stopped worrying about PR.

With Alexa it’s entirely different as it’s rating is supposedly due to the amount of traffic that your blog receives. Most people assume that it’s all derived from those surfers who have the Alexa Toolbar installed on their browser. If this is the sole method Alexa uses to acquire data then I would say it was rather limiting as toolbars are only available on Firefox and Internet Explorer.

I have several blogs and so I decided to compare the Alexa Rating of the two busiest ones, this one and What A Load Of Bullshit. Of the two Wassup Blog has the better ranking 71,076 compared to 431,546, but of the two What A Load Of Bullshit gets more traffic. If this is the case why does Wassup Blog have the better ranking? Surely it can’t be because there are more people with the toolbar that visit one blog over the other?

A couple of months back I started to increase my posting frequency to see if that would increase my ranking. I figured more posts would generate more visits which would in turn increase the ranking as more visits equals more traffic. I can safely say it worked as my ranking went from 120,000 to just over 60,000. Unfortunately I was unable to keep the momentum up due to things happening in my offline life and once I slacked off I noticed my Alexa ranking starting to slowly increase.

So on these findings I could make the assumption that posting frequency increases your Alexa Ranking but I know that Mitch of I’m Just Sharing posts more frequently than I do and yet his Alexa Ranking is 115,681, and whist I don’t have access to his Google Analytic my Cool Blog Links site shows that Wassup Blog gets more traffic than he does although still not as much as my Load of Bullshit blog.

This gets me to thinking that perhaps there is another or several factors that Alexa uses in it’s algorithm? If you think about it they would be pretty silly to just rely on one factor, their Alexa Toolbar, to base the way they rank individual sites, although one can safely say that traffic has a lot to do with it.

So, I got to thinking, what is it about my site that differs so much from Mitch’s that enables me to outrank him? The answer could well be  because I have Alexa’s widget, as can be seen in my sidebar, installed on my sites where Mitch does not. This leads me to assume that the widget passes on certain information to Alexa, information that is used to help gauge a more accurate ranking.

So, although my Load Of Bullshit site get’s more traffic than Wassup Blog I update it a lot less frequently. Could it be that the Alexa widget is able to pick up when new posts are made using that as one of the many factors in it’s algorithm?

Promoting MyDomain Brand Me Contest.

I’m not one for running contests, probably because the ones I have run have failed miserably :laugh_tb: but I do like to promote those that I feel some of my readers will appreciate. This contest is run by MyDomain and it’s all about Your Domain!

From what I can gather it’s all about promoting your domain. It’s open to all US residents and the prizes are $1000 Apple gift cards. Naturally there has to be something in it for MyDomains, and that something is exposure of the .ME extension for domain names. This is great for those who are thinking of a particular domain only to find that it’s been taken by somebody else. So if yourdomain.com is not available why not go for yourdomain.me before someone else takes it?

Come to think of it, a .me domain sounds pretty cool, especially if you were going to use your name as the domain.
