Back in July I discovered that I still had content on an old Christmas site and that I did, in fact, still own the domain. Starting in August I’ve posted content on that site consistently after a modest redesign. This past week, I received my first glimmer of the site’s upcoming success.
When I find a post that makes me think or that I truly enjoy I absolutely love leaving a comment. I love it when people comment on my blog, as well.
That’s why I get extremely frustrated when I encounter a blog where comments are disabled.
Should I get my MBA in Internet Marketing? Today, I found a program that directly pertains to my chosen profession. As more businesses understand how important marketing online is for their businesses, skills like mine are increasingly valuable.
I’ve been working as an affiliate marketer since 2007. One of my biggest lessons over the course of this now seven year journey is that affiliate marketing physical products sold on sites like Amazon and other trusted retailers are a goldmine.
I understand that Hubpages has purchased Squidoo and as a result of the changes that led to the purchase, I no longer have any content on Squidoo. One of my most successful lenses to date was “How to Fix Hardwood Floor Scratches” where I shared with users my tips for what to do when the floor gets scratched.

Do you need blog post ideas? I’ve been writing for a long time and I still feel stumped about what to write from time to time.

One thing I’ve learned is that I feel exceptionally creative some days and on other days, I can’t come up with an idea no matter how hard I try. So, on days when I know my creativity is in top form, I come up with a list of ideas. On days when I am having trouble deciding what to write, I just pick one of these ideas.
In my last post a few days ago, I mentioned that a meme is an option for including in your post. Or, it can be your post if you find one or create one that is snappy enough.

Yesterday, I wrote about How to Write a Blog Post Your Readers Will Love. Well, I thought I’d look around for a video that has a nice explanation on the elements and philosophies behind great blog content.
For those of you who have not been exposed to Yaro Starak yet, you’re in for a treat. He’s very knowledgeable about internet marketing so I trusted his expertise.
One thing that I want to mention is that blog content is about more than just articles and words. There are other forms of content. Yaro goes over this towards the end of his video. Here are some alternatives to writing blog posts: (more…)
I should have set up my first list back in 2005 when I started my first blog. I’ve had a subscription to Aweber for several years and I’ve only halfheartedly put code snippet on my various sites over the years.
