No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog
WordPress For Dummies
Guest blogging is all the rage these days. Two years ago when I started guest blogging, very few people were doing it and a guest post on an A-list blog is guaranteed to result in around 200 – 1000 visitors; sometimes more.
Not anymore, though. You’ll be lucky if you get 100 visits today from a guest post on a popular blog.
There are a host of reasons for this:
- Guest blogging has become very competitive today, to an extent that a lot of blogs now publish only guest posts; that’s a new blog their reader has to check out every day
- Most of the guest posts published today aren’t properly written, giving guest posting in general a bad reputation
- Due to how widespread guest posts are today, people are starting to develop a kind of blindness towards guest posts in general; you remember “banner blindness” a few years ago when banner ads was all the rage?
Does this mean guest blogging no longer works? Read More

Most of us do blogging for growing our online business and generating profit from it. So we have clear cut idea about why we are blogging. But lots of blog owners and guest bloggers are not aware about guest blogging and associated benefits. In today’s special guest post I’m going to share some guest blogging benefits you are missing if you are not using it to its full potential. Guest blogging is equally beneficial for blog owners and guest bloggers and thus it’s a win-win situation for both. Read More
With the 10-year anniversary of the first release of WordPress coming up on May 25 of this year, a lot of attention is already being paid to the reigning champion of the blogging platforms and both how it changed the Internet and how the Internet changed around it.
On one hand, it’s amazing to look at how an upstart fork of b2/cafelog, one that was created simply because Textpattern wasn’t being updated, came to be such a dominant force on the Web and launch a company, Automattic, that now employs some 150 people worldwide.
On the other hand, it’s easy to look at WordPress as a besieged king. An application and a service created in a world of desktops and blogs now living in a world of mobile devices and social media.
It’s obvious that WordPress has helped to shape the Web we’re in today. It’s used by millions of blogs large and small, including many of the most popular sites on the Web. However, the question remains, will WordPress and the WordPress platform be as important in the next ten years as it has been the previous?
It’s tough to say, but I agree with Matt Mullenweg that there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic.
Blogging has so many uses in business and social arenas. Businesses use blogging to increase web traffic and awareness about a company, product or service. Others use blogging to keep their friends and family informed about their lives. Blogging on a Blackberry device has never been simpler. New applications have increased the ability to blog. Blackberry SIM cards make it easy to select new plans while keeping applications stored on the Blackberry device. Read More
For most bloggers, blogging and friendship go hand in hand very well. I know many of the people I consider friends, including both online and off, I would not have met without my blog and some of them have become involved in my sites in various ways, either as business partners, guest authors or just general supporters.
That being said, making friends through blogging is great and having the support of existing ones is just as good, there is a big difference between being friends with someone and working with them, especially over a long period of time.
The problem is that blogging, as fun and as exciting as it can be, is also a lot of work. Work, unfortunately, can divide friends all too easily. Failing that, the business side of blogging can also easily come between two people who, otherwise, would have been great friends.
This is why it’s important to think twice before starting any collaborative blogging effort with your friends. Simply put, you could sink a lot more than your site into the endeavor, you could also lose your friendship.
You want your blog to earn you an income, right?
Most bloggers want that. But you don’t want to cramp your blog’s style by plastering it with a bunch of flashing, in-your-face advertising. You don’t want to add affiliate links to every paragraph. And you don’t like the idea of running sponsored (in other words, paid for) posts on your blog.
It just feels… not right. Not your style. Not what you wanted for your blog.
That’s cool. I’m going to share with you how you can make more money blogging a different way. Read More
This post is a little lengthy… so I won’t waste your time with a lousy intro.
1. Checks Facebook only once per day.
The average person spends way too much time on Facebook. It is true; Facebook can be a valuable tool for a blogger. It helps bloggers find new readers, and keep the conversation going with their current following. It helps them find other bloggers in their industry.
But, when not used correctly, Facebook can also be an insane time eater. Reading your friends’ every status update, browsing through photos, etc can take up much more time than you should be willing to spend on that one social media platform.
Part of being an effective blogger is using time efficiently. So, to make better use of their time, most effective bloggers will check Facebook only once a day. This allows them to access the necessary updates and spend a little bit of time updating and conversing… but not so much time that they waste an entire day liking their cousin’s photos of their dog.
*Tip to Becoming a Highly Effective Blogger: Don’t view Facebook as a fun way to take a break. As a blogger, Facebook is a marketing platform. Looking at friends’ photos is not going to make you money, or get you traffic. Limit your Facebook time to once per day. While on Facebook, concentrate on activities that will help grow your blog and readership. Read More
In a popular movie of former years, Forest Gump compared life to a box of chocolates. â€œYou just never know what youâ€™re gonnaâ€™ get,â€ he tells us.
That is, according to â€œmamaâ€.
Well, perhaps there was a grain of truth to that statement.
And, much the same, blogging has the same potential.
