Be Creative, Be Innovative, Be Positive When Blogging

Do you guys remember that post I did a little while back about creating headlines that have some sort of emotional impact on your readers? No! Well that’s probably because you haven’t subscribed to my blog yet! You really should do something about that you know, otherwise you’ll never know what important interesting little bit of information you’ll miss out on.

Strangely enough, I got this email today which actually portrays how important the wording on a title can be. It’s also a pretty inspiring message and I want to share it with you.

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.

That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.” I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.”

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.
Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling…
And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

If you appreciate this message, please share.
You may touch someone’s heart today and forever.

You know, as bloggers I reckon we can find something a little extra in that story.

Procrastination And How It Can Cost You Money


If you were to look procrastination up on dictionary.com, the first meaning is to defer action; delay: procrastinate until an opportunity is lost. This post is all about lost opportunities and how it can cost you money.

I know all about being ripped off, that’s why I started up my BS blog, to warn people about all the scams that are out there. I personally think that way too many people are overly cautious about being ripped off and that causes them to miss out on many opportunities. Opportunities that could be making them some extra income. I know this is true, and I’m sure many of you will agree with me, because there are so few readers who are willing to click on a link these days.

Personally, I will try anything, especially if it’s free. After all, what could it cost me except a little time. Once I’ve tried a product or a service I will then write a post telling others of my experience. In essence I’m doing all the leg work so that my readers don’t have to. If the trial is a good one I’ll say so and if the reverse is true then I’ll tell them that as well. I won’t give a positive review of a crappy product because it would ruin my credibility and as I stated in the post about why the Three Things Probloggers Have That We Don’t, credibility is a very important factor.

So, I have to ask myself, why aren’t people clicking on those links?

  • My credibility still sucks
  • It’s all too hard, because they’ve been clicking that mouse all day and one more is just too much bloody effort.
  • They’re scared that they’ll get sucked in to some scam or something
  • Not enough time to check it out, but they promise themselves they will come back later.
  • A fear of failure because it all seems too hard

Well, I sure do hope it’s not because my credibility sucks, because I’ve tried so hard to build it up over the years. There’s no reason of being scared, probably the number one reason for procrastination,  because I’m the one that’s put myself in harm’s way so that you don’t have to. If I can survive an experience then you will too, and if I’ve made money from it then there is every chance that you will too.

The not enough time aspect could also be a major cause, especially these days when everyone is so busy. So many people leave things for another day and then never get back to it. Once again, lost opportunities and if you think that lost opportunities aren’t costing you money, well let me tel you, you’re kidding yourself.

There’s also no need to be worried about being scared of taking something new on. That’s how we learn, and if it’s free why not give it a shot.

OK, I think this is a perfect opportunity for a poll

What Stops You From Clicking On A Link

In summary I would just like to say that clicking on a link won’t kill you, especially if it’s from a trustworthy site, and the failure of doing so could actually stop you from increasing your income, either directly, joining a new adsense alternative like Chango or indirectly from the use of software like Market Samurai.

Learning How To Use Market Samurai


This is just going to be a short post about how far I’ve gotten with Market Samurai. Let’s just say that the answer to that is not very far, I’ve yet to fire it up, because I’ve been swamped with other things. Still having said that I have taken a bit of time to visit the Samurai Dojo.

The Dojo is the training facility where you learn all about keyword research and how to use Market Samurai. Not being the most technically minded person I’m happy to say they keep it very simple. Although they have instructional videos I much prefer to use the written video transcripts as it allows me to absorb it in my own time.

I just want to share with you something that I feel is very important when marketing your niche.

Do You Know Your Niche’s Language?

I think this is very important because the knowledge may help you to target your niche with greater success than your competitors. In the dojo they used three examples, weddings, World Of Warcraft and golf citing words that others would not normally use but would be significant to those searching for products in those niches.

Let’s use our own example to illustrate the point. Let’s say that we had a niche site that sold mag wheels. I’d say that most people would use mag wheels, hot mag wheels or sporty mag wheels as their keywords. I think it’s safe to say that Mag Wheels as a keyword would be one that most people would use and so it would be pretty hard to rank on the first page of search engines for that term. Well what if you were to use fully sic wheels? Not one of the results on the first page were from anyone using this combination of words as their keywords. So if you were to target those words it wouldn’t be relatively easy to get on the top 10!

Of course the question one has to ask is how many people would use that combination of words because it’s also important to target words that people will use because that’s the only way to get traffic.

So, for all of those of you with niche blogs, have you considered your niche’s particular language?
