WassupBlog Now Hosted On A VPS Host

google speed

You certainly don’t have to be Tom Cruise to have a need for speed! Nope, you just have to be a blogger who wants to supply his readers with the ultimate experience. Sure, we all know that content is king but, people may not hang around long enough to see how good your content really is if your blog takes too long to load.  That’s bad and what’s worse is that if you’re blog is all about making money then having a slow blog may be costing you sales. I’ve done a couple of posts on how to increase your blog speed, the last one being Taking The Time To Increase Your Blog’s Speed., but this one is going to show you ways that won’t just make your blog faster it will also make Google happier, and we all want to do that don’t we?  I’ve put up with this blog loading…

What Is A Bloggers Biggest Cost?

You want to become a blogger but not sure whether or not you can afford it? Well, unless you go the free platform route, which would be a grave mistake, you’re biggest expense would be your hosting costs. Even though hosting a blog on your own domain is one of the few recurring costs as far as owing your very own prospective business it is so cheap it’s laughable. Those who know me know I own a fair few blogs, 10 to be exact, more if you were to count my other websites. I used to host all my blogs with the same host but I learned the hard way how the error of my ways.

The Products You Can Promote On Your Blogs

Out of all the emails I get from my readers the one question that comes up the most is a variation of the following; “Sire, everywhere I go I read that if I want to make money on my blog I really need a product of my own to promote. The problem is I don’t have one and so I really need some advice as to what products I actually can promote.” Naturally, all the emails were different but that quote portrays the general gist of the emails. Its safe to say that this problem is one that many bloggers struggle with and it is in fact one that I struggled with for a few years myself. The obvious reason is that bloggers, like myself, don’t have our own product to promote and probably never will have. That being the case we join sites like Commission Junction, Clickbank and the…

Of Good Hosts And Bad Hosts, Beware The Bad Hosts

Over a year ago I wrote a post about how I moved this blog from one host to another. That post was called WassupBlog Alive And Kicking After Transferring to BlueHost. If you’re looking for a good host you can’t go past BlueHost and their CPU Throttling would have to be one of their best features. Over a year later it’s happened to that host again. The first time it happened I thought it wasn’t really the host’s fault, it was just that Wassup had outgrown it, especially as I had three other blogs hosted under the one domain. Let that be a warning to people, although many hosting packages give you unlimited domains you have to remember the more domains you have on the same host the more strain you’re putting on your CPU and the more likely you’ll get your account suspended. Once I moved WassupBlog I left…

A Step By Step Guide Of Hosting Your WordPress Blog

A couple of weeks ago I did a post on Why I Don’t Comment On Blogger Blogs and it turned out to be quite popular. I know that sooner or later a blogger may decide to make the wise move of hosting their 0wn blog, and I thought that perhaps one of the reasons holding them back is the assumption that it’s pretty difficult to do so. This post, a step by step guide of setting up your own WordPress blog is for those bloggers. Once you’ve downloaded the the latest WordPress files and you have unzipped the files. you will need to a FTP client to upload those files to your new domain and I recommend FileZilla.
