How To Make A Monthly Income With Your Blog

I read somewhere that those blogs that hit the top do so because the blogger provides the reader something that they desire, and they do it for free. It could be many things including interesting articles, competitions, tips and tricks of the trade, but whatever it is, it is of value to the person visiting the blog. Unfortunately, bloggers like myself do not have the means to run competitions or give away prizes and such, and so we have to rely on the quality of our content or the passing on of valuable information to our readers. This may included blogging techniques or tips and tricks, and on occasions it can even be a way for increasing their blogging or webmaster revenue, which is what this post is all about. I have just come across a particular site that is going to guarantee me a monthly income. This site is definitely a must for bloggers and webmasters alike as long as they have their own domain, another reason for hosting your own site! They will pay you £5 (it's an English Site) every month into your PayPal account. I've copied this from their Home Page: All you have to do is implement 3 of our 468 x 60 banners on your web site. Your site can be or any size, with any amount of traffic, we don't mind at all! As long as the banners are implemented on your site and retained, you'll continue to receive PayPal payments! You can even have…

Do You Want More People Commenting On Your Blog?

When looking back at my blogs I get the feeling that although I am doing all the right things and most of my blogs are getting lots of hits, very few people are taking the time to comment. Now if you're like me you just have to agree that getting comments virtually breathes life into a blog. Without comments it's sort of like talking to the wind. If we think of our blog as a room and the readers as visitors to that room then perhaps getting that initial comment would be like what would happen when someone breaks the silence and a conversation ensues. So, what we need is a way to break the ice, and what better way than to offer an incentive and the incentive that I have in mind is that we return the favor by commenting on a post on their blog. Considering the vast amount of bloggers out there who would dearly love to increase the comments on their blog I reckon the solution should be very popular. I want to start a "You Comment And I Will Comment On Your Blog" movement, and to show who is involved in the movement we should display the following icon. In addition I feel that like the 'dofollow' movement we should also get rid of the no-follow tags that is standard with most blogs. Anyone who wants to get involved in this movement needs to meet the following requirements Always follow the commenter to their blog and leave…

The F Word, When No Other Word Will Do

Image via Wikipedia You may have recalled from one of my previous posts how I said that hosting your own blogs gave you more freedom? Well this is completely true in regards to censorship. I've had many posts/articles deleted from community sites because there were some there who were offended or even found it distasteful. Heck I even had the word SEX censored to S*X! Nope I am not kidding, now you tell me how anyone could find sex distasteful? Hosting my own blogs gives me the opportunity to post what I want, but even so I would not post anything that I felt my readers would find 'distasteful' as I want to entice people to read my posts not scare them away! So even though I am able to use the ever popular F word, a word that Gordon Ramsay has made famous, I choose not too, as I find the word can be used way too often, even when not necessary. On the other hand I admit that there may well be times when that very non-descriptive word can and will slip out. I actually wrote a poem about it that was actually banned from several sites. Without further ado I present to you The F Word! The F word, always on the tip of your tongue As an expletive the F word is rated number one It’s always there when the need arises And most times it will win you no prizes There are many occasions when it’s in…
