A Recap Of 2011 And Best Wishes For 2012

The year is almost up and I feel it’s time for a little reflection on all that has transpired over the last 365 days. I started the year with my post Are Your Goals For 2011 Achievable?, the first of 115 posts for the year. That particular post outlined why I believed so many people were failing in their objectives to making an online income and what they should do to maximize their online income potential.

The first money making post for the year goes to How To Make Money Off A Popular Post where I introduced you guys to MediaPass, a site that allows you to turn those popular posts into virtual income generating articles. I am happy to report that there are some who have signed up under me who are doing very well through it adding even more to my source of passive income and for that I must thank you and say keep up the good work :wink_ee:

WordPress Plugins Were Popular In 2011

I don’t think anyone would argue that one of the reasons WordPress is a popular blogging platform is because of all the hard work those remarkable guys put into developing plugins that not only make our life as bloggers easier but also help us to add to out blogging income.

OK, there were other plugins mentioned throughout the year, including several posts on CommentLuv Premium but I reckon those were the main ones. I also expect there to be more next year as I come across other interesting plugins. The problem I will come across then will be which plugins to let go.

How I Made Money In 2011

As my regulars know, I’m the type of blogger that loves to share with his readers my experiences, both good and bad, with online money making ventures.There have been several throughout the year of which these are just a few.

Naturally there was a lot of other posts, 114 to be exact, that I could link to but that would be a little over the top. Suffice it to say that they covered everything from jokes, poems, inspirational posts to ways of making money online. I’m sure that my topics are so varied that I have managed to secure a dedicated following as well as why my list membership continues to grow.

I’ve also produced more YouTube videos and I’m planning to utilise YouTube as another avenue for making money in 2012. Speaking of YouTube I would really appreciate if you could take the time to give this particular video a little plug, naturally only if you think it is worth it. :thumbup_tb:

All in all I am more than happy with the way things have gone this year, especially with my latest venture, Buy Online Lottery Tickets, and I look forward to 2012 as being a year that holds many possibilities. Of course things will be really different if I win one of the lotteries outlined in this post. I thought what better way to start off the new year than by winning some money which is why I purchased a ticket from a Brazilian, Spanish and Aussie lottery. The size of the jackpot didn’t interest me as much as the fact that they will all be drawn on December 31st.

As this will be the last post for the year I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and that all your wishes and plans for 2012 come to fruition.

Also, if you’re going to leave a comment I hope it has some content and is more than just good post or Happy New Year as these will just be deleted.

Some Hints For The Beginning Blogger

When you first start blogging you feel like you are all alone in the blogosphere. You’ve written your first post, heck you may even have written half a dozen posts but nothing is happening. You know the posts exists because you can go online and see it there in front of you but you’re not sure if anyone is reading it because you’re not getting any comments.

So you start Googling and reading other blogs to see what it is you’re doing wrong. You install Google Analytic so that you can at least see if anyone is actually visiting your blog. Of course in the very early days not much is going to happen unless you get out there and make it happen.


Telling People You Exist


The best way to do this is to be active on other blogs by reading their ladybugposts and leaving great comments everywhere you go. It is very important that the comments you leave are filled with great content that add to the post because it’s these very comments that will show others you are going to be a force to be reckoned with. If your comments are better than all the other comments on any given post then you’re going to stand out from the rest and people will follow you back to your blog to find out more about you.

To Tweet Or Not To Tweet, That Is The Question?

There was a post that I wrote some time ago where told of my experience with Shakespeare and it culminated in a Shakespearean style piece which I called To Blog Or Not To Blog, That Is The Question? Although my poetry and other creative posts don’t always fare that well I persist with them because I find they push my creativity and I enjoy that immensely. Not only the challenge of coming up with something different from the norm but the immense satisfaction of sitting back and admiring my work after its completion.

Another reason for doing something a little different is because there are already so many posts out there covering this topic I thought it best to be a bit more creative.

To tweet or not to tweet, a question asked by many
Tom, Dick and Harry or even Mary, Kristi and Jenny
They may all be wondering whether to tweet or not
What they should be asking; Is it worth a shot?

Your Twitter rep is important, so keep it in mind
Do not tweet crap for fear of leaving it behind
Only tweet works, that you find are worth the tweet
For then your twitter rep, in time will become elite

What of self promotion, is that not a good excuse
To give a blog a tweet so that you also get some juice?
But that will only work if a great comment you’ll leave
A comment that adds value that readers will receive

Some will tweet to line their pockets with money
But if you do too many, others won’t think you funny
Your tweets must be interesting, that others will enjoy
Just keep in mind it’s a social tool and not a ruddy toy

To put it in a nut shell you should tweet posts but rather than just tweet and run off you should also take the time to leave a great comment, especially if you can leave one that stands out from the rest. Tweeting a great post which you have made better by leaving a great comment will give both you and the blogger exposure.
