Make More Money as a Passionate Blogger

If you want to build make money blogs, you’ll want to consider your personal passions.

You might think sentiment seems misplaced in the otherwise mercenary world of internet marketing. Why should you really care about something as unquantifiable as your emotions? It’s really just about finding a good niche with the right numbers, right?

Wrong.

It’s a simple fact that marketers who feel passionate about their topics tend to earn more than others do. There are some strong justifications for choosing a niche you love. Let’s look at a few of them.

First, you’re more likely to create quality content that really answers the concerns of those looking for relevant information. If you really know your topic, you’re less likely to supply inaccurate information. You’re also far more likely to create content that will connect with your blog’s readers. If you want to know how to make money, you need to realize the power of working on topics that interest you.

Additionally, you’re more likely to keep your project moving forward when you care about it. Motivation is a critical part of internet marketing success and it’s much easier to find the motivation to work on a project that interests you than it is to labor on something that bores you to tears. Blogging isn’t a one-off way to make money. Your success depends upon regularly adding content and making improvements. The failure to choose a niche that excites you can lead to project abandonment.

Third, making money […]

WordPress is Versatile and Adaptable

Why WordPress ImageMany years ago, HTML was the only way that you could have a web site. You had to hire a web site designer if you wanted to have an appealing site online for your business. You had to pay good money if you wanted your site to look professional. The more things you wanted it to do, the more money you were likely to pay. Since WordPress came along though, things have changed drastically.

At first WordPress was just used to power blogs. Many people turned to blogging as a means of representing their business because it was easy to start a blog. You could have WordPress up and running with your own hosting and your own domain in a matter of minutes. People loved it. It wasn’t blogging that they loved as much as the easy-to-use content management system (CMS) though. Businesses and entrepreneurs that wanted their own site no longer had to dish out hundreds of dollars (or more) for a website designer because WordPress was free and it was something they could learn to use themselves!

The more people used WordPress and its simple CMS, the more uses they found for it. Although it started out as a blogging platform, people have since found that there are many other ways that it can be used thanks to the wide scope of WordPress Themes that are available. While free WordPress themes are quite useable, paid themes offered webmasters […]

Start Taking Action Now

One of the most common problems I hear about people who are doing some business online is the lack of action taking. I too have had to face this problem as well. See, I haven’t published a new blog post for quite a while and I’ve been pondering why. Here is what I observed and how I overcame my writer’s block.

At first, there was a sentence I kept repeating to myself, “writing is hard”. So I decided I’d rather concentrate on my strengths. While it is wise to focus on our strength and not our weakness, the other reality is also crucial: an online business is primarily made up of having fresh and original content and releasing them on a continual basis. So I noticed while I kept repeating to myself “writing is hard”, the result was: no new blog post was being written.

What you keep telling yourself (to your subconscious) is self-prophetic, if you tell your mind, “writing is hard”, your subconscious just “agrees” with you: “You’re right, so be it”. So, while it makes sense to focus on your strength and not on your weakness, it also makes sense to also aim, at the same time, to turn your weakness into your strength. So how do you go about doing that?

How I changed my thought pattern and turned my weakness into my strength

So how did I change my thinking and behaviour around and start to write again? It’s by stopping telling myself “writing is […]

Steps For Internet Marketing ProgressThe life of an Internet marketer/blogger newbie could be very lonely. Invariably they work alone, the people in their immediate circle don’t share their ‘nerdy’ enthusiasm and they often don’t even have someone as a ‘sounding board’.

Like most things in life results for the newbie Internet marketer don’t come immediately – on the contrary, if they achieve results, chances are it took a lot of trial and error, wasted money on empty promises of so called ‘gurus’, who sell ‘secrets to success’ that are only secret to the naive newbies.

But worse of all, it erodes the confidence of an already despairing aspiring Internet marketer whose low self-esteem is the only thing decreasing at the speed of light, and as if on steroids, the roots of self doubt are choking the last dwindling gasps of hope… Soon they are lost in the lush dense ‘forest’ of the ‘Internet’. Sure, the net provides an abundance of information, however, the inexperienced newbie has no way of knowing which bit is actually useful, relevant to the needs of their business or, whether it is really the latest in technology or if it is outdated.

Now most newbies are conscientious people who want to do things ‘properly’ and everything has to be ‘ready’ and ‘perfect’ because they want to do a ‘good job’. Getting stuck on details and fine tuning along the way inevitably takes the focus off, a resulting in that ‘lost in the forest’ feeling, […]

Changing Your Webpage URL is a Bad Thing

Here is a quick tip to WordPress users and web  masters in general about a practice that could be detrimental to your search engine ranking. (Warning WordPress jargon is used in this post)

One of the main advantages of WordPress is the ability to quickly publish a new web page or blog post and to edit the content of a web page after it’s been published. Now with WordPress it’s very easy to change your webpage URL as well after you’ve already published a page.

Beware, this is a change you must not do. Do not change your web page URL after it’s been published and the page has already been indexed by Google (i.e. found by and listed in Google). Google doesn’t like that.

The reason is: when you change your URL (slug), Google thinks there is a broken page (former URL), and a duplicate page on your site (new url): it may penalise both URLs (pages), and your page severely drops in ranking on Google: well at least for a while until Google decides drop the old page from its index.

So choose your URL very carefully before you publish a new page and never change it from then on.

However, if you do need to change a page URL, make sure the old page URL has a 301 redirect to the new page to avoid the above mentioned problem with Google. A 301 redirection means, you are telling Google that the old page has been permanently […]

Facebook commentKnowing that Facebook is number 1 in the world when it comes to visitors number, more and more bloggers are focusing on finding ways to present their blogs to Facebook users.

Almost every blog has a “Share this on Facebook” button, and on Facebook there are Networked blogs, where you can syndicate your blog and so much more.

I ran into this neat little plugin, used on this blog as well, called Facebook Comments for WordPress.

We are all aware that there are people reading our blogs who are not bloggers themselves. They won’t care about commenting when they need to enter their e-mail and have no idea what to put in as their website.

So they don’t comment. But knowing that Facebook has 520 millions of users (according to USAtoday), don’t you think that you are loosing a comment or two (and maybe a reader or two) because you are not making it easy for them?

Installing this plugin is as easy as installing any plugin. There’s just one extra thing to do, that’s to get a Facebook ID but the instructions are pretty clear and you won’t miss it.

After you have installed and activated the plugin, the fun starts.

Now you make it possible for everyone who has a Facebook account to comment on your post easy. If they are already logged in Facebook, all they need to do it type in the comment and press the button :).

Here is the nicest […]
