Three Things The Probloggers Have That We Don’t

Have you ever wondered why you’re lagging behind the pro bloggers of this world? What is it that they have that you haven’t?  I’ve been thinking about this a whole lot and I’ve decided it all boils down to three main factors.


Yep, credibility is a big part of it, and I’m not just talking about the ones that boast about their income or have a photo of a huge check posted on their blog. These guys are successful because people believe in what they say. This didn’t happen overnight either, it took a lot of time and hard work.

Over time as their popularity increased so did their credibility because other people were spreading the word via their blogs and as the word got out more people believed. It’s no wonder then that so many people were willing to buy the products that these ‘gurus’ were selling.


One of the things that you need to make money, whether it’s a store in the real world or a site in the online world, is traffic. The more people you get in the door the more chances of making a sale. The question is how do they get all this traffic? I would hazard a guess that a lot of it is from those same bloggers that are promoting them via all their posts.

Every time someone writes about them a new link is created and every time a link is created Google pricks up his pointy ears, takes notice and sends more traffic to them because he thinks that people wouldn’t point to them if there wasn’t something of interest there.


They say content is king and they would be right because without good content their popularity would be short lived. These guys must know what they are talking about because if they didn’t they would have been found out long before now.

One must wonder though if they’re making as much now as they used to. You would have to admit that there’s a lot more competition out there now than when they first started. Shit, every Tom Dick and Harry has a blog about making money and more are starting up every day. Most of them don’t have the credibility and so they post crap or rehash what they’ve read with false statistics trying to prove to others that they know what they’re talking about, when in fact they don’t.

So where does that leave the rest of us? All I can say is that I believe it’s going to be harder for us than it was for the original pro bloggers because we have so much more competition than they had to go up against in the beginning. We can still succeed though, we just have to do things better than them.

I reckon a lot of these guys are getting complacent and they aren’t spending the time on their blogs that they used to. They don’t give their commentators the respect they deserve by replying to their comments. They’re getting more and more guest bloggers to provide material that they used to provide themselves. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with guest bloggers, but they shouldn’t be providing more content than the host blogger.

We have to write factual posts that do not lead people astray. We don’t want to be promoting something that we would not use ourselves. We need to provide interesting material on a constant basis if we want people to keep returning. This last point is a must. I know that as a fact because of late the amount of posts I’ve been writing has decreased which has lead to a downturn in traffic and consequently a decrease in my earnings.

So, keep your spirits up, keep your content flowing and keep your readers and commentators happy by interacting with them. Above all make sure that you’re enjoying what you’re doing because if your not enjoying it, then what’s the bloody point.

Men And Women Are Just Born That Way

Let’s face it, I like to have a little fun with this blog and a lot of the time that means picking a little on the lady folk, in a nice way of course. :innocent1_tb: This can be seen in the popular post, If Women Controlled The Earth, which was full of images showing how many things that we take for granted would be different if women were in charge.

Then there was The Difference Between Male and Female, which showed how women and men behaved in the same circumstances, and naturally the differences were quite remarkable.

Let’s not forget There Is No Way In Hell That A Man Can Please A Woman where I attempted to show in my own Aussie way that no matter what a bloke does to make a woman happy it just doesn’t seem to go down the way it was intended.

Women & The All About Me Syndrome was an attempted satirical post where women suffered from IAAMS.  Not my most popular post but I sure did have a lot of fun with it and if I can’t have a little fun with blogging I don’t think I would be blogging today.

I reckon it’s pretty obvious though that there is a real difference in the way men and women behave and there’s not much we can really do about it if it’s all in our genes. As this video clearly shows there are preconceived paths that we must follow from the moment of conception. Let’s face it guys, and gals, it’s in our genes and there ain’t much we can do about it.

Protecting Your Online Activity With A Password Manager

The Internet is truly a wondrous invention but it has two sides. The good side allows us to communicate with others way across the other side of the world. It’s a vast source of entertainment and information but unfortunately it also has it’s dark side.

Yep, just about everything has a dark side so why should the Net be any different? The Net is the perfect tool for those who wish to abuse it and it could be anything from those annoying people who spam your blogs to those who try to rip you off or worse still steal your identity, and we all know how bad identity theft can be. Whilst I try to expose as many schemes as possible on my Load Of Bullshit blog more are being produced every day. I know that blog actually works because I’ve had many people thanking me for writing those posts. I’ve even had a company threatened me with a law suit if I did not remove a particular post but that post still stands to this day.

One thing that many people fail to do online is use proper passwords. Instead they use passwords that are easy to remember and more often than not they use the same password for multiple sites. Who can blame them when you consider that some people may have to remember hundreds of passwords. That used to be me until I found the right password manager!

With the right password manager, instead of using easy to crack passwords, you can be using passwords like ‘9fr*@]d\504a@iZ$*jR1f ! Can you imagine how hard it would be to crack Credit Card Theftthat little number? Now I know that there are some of you who think their passwords are safe enough but if you have to enter them manually you should keep in mind that there are ways where your keystrokes can be recorded meaning that your password can be stolen.

With the password manager that I’m offering you in this post there are no keystrokes, it’s all done via a simple cut and paste process. As I may have mentioned I need to have access to hundreds of passwords and so I needed a program that would allow me to access them with ease. The password manager I use not only allows me to categorize my sites by using multiple directories it also has a great search feature that directs me to the password I need within seconds.

You would expect to pay a pretty penny for something such as this. If I were into list building I could even use it to build a huge list because this program is truly exceptional. But I’m not so I ain’t going that route. I could even offer it to you once you subscribed to this blog but I’m not doing that either because I only want people to subscribe because they like WassupBlog and want to be kept up to date with my offerings and musings. Imagine those who have not subscribed are actually missing out on securing their online activities.

No, KeePass Password Safe is absolutely free and you don’t have to jump any hurdles to get it because that is exactly how the author intended it to be. Check out the site as it had a lot of screen captures and be sure to download it because it will be the best thing you’ve ever done to maintain your online security.
