Are People Reading Your Posts

Are people reading my posts is a question that I have asked myself on a fair few occasions. It’s also a very important question because as bloggers the reason we do what we do is so people can stop by and read what we have to say. But how do you know if people are reading your posts? Is the fact that they’re leaving a comment enough proof of them reading them? If only that was a true indication! You know as well as I do that the majority of comments left these days are by people who are only interested in getting a link back to their site. They don’t care in the slightest what you have to say and more often than not formulate their comment from your title or from quickly scanning some of your content. Sometimes their comment is so bad you know they’re full of…

Will Adbeans Affect Your PR

PageRank

I’ve already done two posts on Adbeans, mainly Using Adbeans To Increase Your Online Income and Update On Adbeans – Can You Make Money With Adbeans? I wasn’t planning to do anymore posts but something came up that I felt wass of the utmost importance to a lot of my readers, especially those who are concerned about their PR! Firstly, let me say that I have had no problems with Adbeans themselves as they have always paid me my dues. Unfortunately Google does have a problem with me using them and because of that they have decided to strip the blog where I was using their ads of it’s PR. Yep, it went from a PR3 to PR0. No biggie for me because I’ve never been too worried about PR but I reckon because I’ve lost my PR Adbeans won’t be sending any more jobs my way. That’s cool too because those links…

Improving Lists And Stopping Annoying Popups

Do you guys remember the post I did on how many emails it took before you considered it spam? That post included a poll which showed that for most people it took at least three emails. For others it was four and for some as low as two. The problem is that good or bad lists will not change unless we do something about it which is what this post is all about. Let’s face it, the reason so many people use lists and those really annoying popups is because they work. Yep, those popups and all those crappy emails you keep getting manage to generate sales for those people using them. Still, the fact that they work does not make them any less annoying  The question is can we do something to stop people from using them? Well that all depends on whether or not you’re willing to make a…

Your Guest Poster Breaks The Rules! Now What?

Its time for another poll but before we can start a new one we need to discuss the results of the last one. I started that poll on April the 15th and what I was trying to work out was whether or not it was ethical for bloggers to do paid posts? A total of 46 people took part in the poll, 43 saying yes it was ethical and only three saying that it wasn’t. From the comments left by my readers it was obvious that even though most agreed it was ethical it all depended on how the blogger conducted the paid post. Was he being honest and not intentionally misleading his readers? Did the blogger disclose that he was being paid to write the post? As long as he adhered to these and certain other criteria then doing paid posts was not a problem. Before we get to…

What Is This World Coming To When It Comes To Morals

I did a post on my Load Of Bullshit blog some time ago called Shame on Noel Biderman For Promoting Adultery which was about my personal opinion of this blokes idea of promoting adultery as a being good for business. Perhaps I’m a puritan but I just feel that this sort of thing is pretty sick. It continues to get a fair bit of traffic and even had a visit from Noel himself when he attempted to justify his immoral actions. There was a time when adultery was pretty well frowned on, and perhaps rightly so as it effects could be far reaching, and for what, a bit of personal gratification? Image via Wikipedia I’m sure that in those days the retribution for trying to promote the act would have been just as harsh as it was committing it. I’m also pretty sure you wouldn’t have seen any posters or…

Embracing The Difference In Fellow Bloggers

This morning I’ve had the pleasure of reading a post by Jordon of NotAProBlog. As is his want Jordon precludes the post with a good video on the subject which in this case is Allyn’s extremely funny post, When A-List Turns To A-Hole.  Well it seems that Allyn has removed that particular video because all the f-bombs pissed off some people who withdrew their consulting deals. Let that be a lesson to some of you, there are people who take what you say and do too literally at times and this can bite you in the ass at a later date. It was obvious to me that Jordon didn’t like the way Allyn handled himself in the video and so he brought all his 13 years as a professional stand up comedian into play to show others the error of his ways. Truth be told it was all rather convincing, on…

What Made The Baby Boomers So Strong?

Every now and again I come across an email that I just have to post about and this is one of those messages. CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE READING THIS WHO WAS BORN IN THE 1930’s 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads of bacon and processed meat, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes or cervical cancer. Then after that trauma, our baby cots were covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets or shoes, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking. As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. We drank water…
