Necessity is the mother of invention. This is a well known proverb that can be applied to many things in life, including blogging. It basically means that whenever someone finds a need for something, if that need is great enough he will find a way of fulfilling that need. One avenue of blogging where this is clearly displayed is the creation of all the great plugins that we use in our blogs. This can be anything from Andy’s Commentluv to Microkid’s related posts. They can save us time by simplifying tasks, they can improve the SEO of our blog or they can even reward those who take the time to comment on our blogs. As bloggers our greatest need would be to get others to visit our blog. It doesn’t matter if you’re blogging for money or if you’re doing it just for the love of it, unless people are coming to…

My Spin On The Squeeze Page And Email Lists

I would dare to suggest that almost everyone who surfs the net regularly has been exposed to a Squeeze Page at one time or another, even though they may not have known at the time that was what it was called. I remember the first time I was ever exposed to a Squeeze Page was also the first time I got sucked into a scam. That was the time I paid good money for what was supposed to be an extensive list of companies who were willing to pay me for taking surveys. A lot of the stuff on that list was either duplicated or pure BS, and what really pissed me of was that it was all available on the net for Free! For those of you who are not sure what a Squeeze Page is, it’s usually a single web page designed solely for one purpose, to squeeze something…

I love Australia and so in this post I want to share a couple of things that make Australia unique. The first is called Anna Creek Station. I’ve heard on more than one occasion how Texans always boast as to how everything in Texas is bigger than anywhere else, well that’s only because those Texans haven’t been to Australia. I’ve had a few relatives come over from Italy and they usually land on our front doorstep wanting to be shown Australia. Yep, sure, as if we could just hop in the car and drive them around over the week end. They just couldn’t comprehend the size of Australia until I explained to them that we could fit the whole of Italy comfortably into Victoria, and once I showed them Victoria on the map I think it finally dawned on them. OK, back to Texas and Anna Creek Station. The biggest ranch in…

Blogging, It’s Not What You Say But How You Say It

As a seasoned blogger I am no longer amazed at the amount of new bloggers entering the fray thinking there is a quick buck to be made. Most of them enter the blog tips or blog marketing niche thinking to capitalize on that aspect of the market. Where they fail is that all they’re doing is regurgitating what others have already said and I know it tends to rub some the wrong way. Take my mate Mitch for example, who wrote The Secret Is There Is No Secret, where he’s bitching about all these types of posts that are offering nothing new, except possibly to someone who  may be considering taking up the blogging challenge by starting their own blog on blogging for money or ways of driving traffic to your blog. The way I see it is that although this market is pretty well saturated, inroads into it can…

Final Update On Snap Dollars

Why final you ask? Because once this post is complete there will no longer be a need for further updates. For those of you new to this blog, or new to Snap Dollars you may want to read my original posts. Making Money With Snap Dollars was the post that started it all and that was the post that I first reviews SnapDollars. I then followed it up with the Update On Snap Dollars which described how I wasn’t all impressed with it and how this prompted someone from SnapDollars to comment as how I was going about it all wrong. This led to Updating The Update On Snap Dollars where I changed my approach and actually made some money. Naturally, until I actually have that money in my pocket I wasn’t prepared to give it my final seal of approval. That money arrived yesterday, and whilst it’s not a fortune…

Viddler And Why Some People Prefer To Use Them

I was just over at Gary Vaynerchuk’s site where he is talking about drawing lines in the sand where I noticed that where most people use YouTube Gary is using different video hosting service called Viddler. OK, so Gary is a pretty with it sort of guy and I have noticed other people using this particular and so I wondered why they used Viddler over YouTube. Could it possibly be that being a business orientated blog he wanted a host that that concentrated on online video for business? So, I figure I should look into it and the first major difference I discovered was that you had to pay to host your video on Viddler! OK, so why would anyone want to pay for a service that you can get for free? Yeah, now that really got me wandering and the obvious thing that came to mind was that it…

Using Your Website As A Marketing Tool

I was lucky enough to get hold of an eBook written by Mitch, a well known blogger who amongst other blogs runs the popular I’m Just Sharing Blog, and I thought only fitting that I write a review of it. In Mitch’s eBook, Using Your Website As A Marketing Tool, he outlines the importance a website can play as part of any marketing campaign and how as a small business you could be missing out on the huge potential by not having one.  Mitch also stresses that while it is important to have a website you don’t want one that is poorly designed or looks cheap, for obvious reasons. Unlike some eBooks that I’ve read that tells you to do something but doesn’t tell you why you should do it this eBook states reasons for why things should be done, starting off with the reasons as to why you should have a…

If Women Controlled The Earth

I remember a time many years ago when my newly wedded wife was filling the spa for the first time. I was in another part of the house when I heard her screaming hysterically. I rushed to the bathroom to confront the following scene. My beautifully naked wife, standing in the middle of the bathroom with jets of water squirting all over the place. I couldn’t help myself as I walked past her and turned, laughing the whole time, the spa off. I’ve heard of other stories where women who were confronted with scary situations just didn’t know how to react, there was even one where this young girl in a car with her instructor let go of the steering wheel and covered her face with her hands. Let’s not get the wrong idea here folks. Not all women react in this fashion. There were many influential women throughout the…
