>Successfully Launching a Blog in 6 Simple Steps


Setting up and launching a blog is relatively easy. However immediately before and after the launch certain steps should be taken and proper blogging habits should be established. These steps and habits will help maximize the amount of success you experience during the critical infancy stages of your blog.

Here’s a checklist to help insure your blog is both properly prepared and maintained:

Step #1 – Focus on the Setup

In your rush or excitement to launch your blog don’t forget to insure your setup is complete and working properly. You should have your RSS feed working correctly and be sure your site is optimized for the search engines. Also don’t forget to check that you’re able to ping the blog search engines with every new blog post.
No matter how good your design may look, if you are not correctly ‘broadcasting’ your blog or optimized nobody will know you exist.

Step #2 -Establish Your Blog Theme

At this point you should already have chosen a blog theme or topic which you will blog about. Remember this topic and stay with it CONSISTENTLY as you post. Wandering off onto other subjects will only confuse your readers and the search engines. People came to your blog and returned because they were interested in the topic. To change that now would only make them lose interest in your blog and leave permanently.

Step #3 – Post with Predictable Regularity

In the initial stages it is recommended that you post frequently to get noticed and build up the flow of traffic to your blog. However often you decide to post make an effort to maintain that schedule. This will help establish a regimen for both yourself and your readers.

Step # 4 – Encourage Comments

Encouraging the interaction of your readers will only make your blog more popular. By exchanging comments and responses a sense of community will develop. Not to be overlooked in this process is the important feedback a blog owner can receive and use to improve the blog.

Step # 5 – Say More with Less Words

People generally skim for news and information whether online or off. Make it easy for your readers by being concise and to the point with your post.

Step # 6 – Show some Personality

Take advantage of the ‘forum’ a blog gives you and let your writings reflect your attitude, humor, flair, or uniqueness. This will help your readers identify with you while also injecting some life into what could otherwise sometimes be a ‘ho hum’ blog post.

While setting up and launching a blog can take relatively little time don’t expect to establish regular traffic just as quickly. Time must be given for word about your blog to circulate. It’s during this time that you must continue to add good content and interact with your readers. Your consistency in doing so will be reflected in future traffic to your blog. To your blogging Success!

>Blogging- so Much More Than Just Writing


Blogging.  Many people think that blogging is as simple as sitting down at the computer and typing up a quick little blurb and then moving on to the next one.  And for those who do a personal blog or who are not interested in either promoting themselves or their business or making money- it is.  But in order to create something substantial it is a whole lot more than that.


To write an informative blog post is not as easy as it might seem to be.  You have to strike the right combination and not only keep your readers interested but teach them something they did not previously know.  Every writer has their own style that becomes more distinctive as time goes on but getting into that flow takes time.

Even before writing a blog post a lot of time can be invested in research. This research can include clarifications on the subject you are writing about such as date details, a review of a product, an overview of notes taken previously on the subject, or just an overall gathering of the thoughts in your head.

Once you have have a more concrete idea about your topic the research on the written part itself comes in.  What keywords are you using and are there any longtail keywords that will work well with your topic? What type of post are you going to write and from what perspective? And what headline is going to garner the most interest?

These questions can sometimes generate confusion and lead to writers block.  There are a ton of great tools and how to posts out there to assist you.

Interlinking and Proofreading

Now you have your post written one of the first things that you should do is proof read and spell check your post.  There has been a lot of debate about whether articles should be grammatically correct and the spelling error free but a post reads more fluidly and is more easily understood if it reads the way that it should. 

Interlinking helps your blog out in several different ways. It helps to get your older pages looked at more frequently and to decrease your bounce rate. It also assists in ranking (although not as much as an incoming link).  Once you are done writing your post you can go back and pick out keywords and phrases that you can use to link to other posts on your blog. In the beginning this may seem tedious but once you get in the habit of doing this it will become second nature.

Outbound Links 

Linking out to other blogs can be a time consuming activity- but one well worth the effort.  Outbound links can assist you in that they show your readers that your knowledge of your post doesn’t stop with what you are writing but with the knowledge of what others are writing about the same topic.  It can draw new readers to your blog as people you link to will generally come take a look at what you are writing.  It can also help build you up as an authority in your field.

Make sure that you give correct credit when linking to someone else and don’t just put the link in the anchor text without mentioning them or their blog. And it needs to flow smoothly with your post and make sense- don’t just put a link to put a link.

A great example of someone who uses outbound links effectively is Jim Regan at The Net Fool.  Every Sunday he writes Sunday Link Love and Announcements in which he writes about the week, gives five links to great posts he has read that week along with a little summary and finishes up with stock market and blogosphere updates and a look ahead.  These articles are all high quality posts and really strengthen his credibility.


Last but certainly not least- promoting.  Promoting your blog can be the most time consuming part of of blogging itself if you are intent on steadily increasing your traffic. There are many different ways to promote your blog including article marketing, forums, social networking and bookmarking sites, and commenting on other blogs.

As you become more proficient in the ways that you want to promote your blog you will find that you are able to do way more in less time.  For instance, if using article marketing as a tool you can use article submission sites which automatically submit your article to thousands of websites, blogs, and directories.  Or if you choose to do it yourself you can have five different article submission sites open and copy and paste right down the line.  (Much, much faster than doing it one at a time.) 

Participating on forums and social networks which allow you to use a link to your blog in your signature is a great way to promote yourself and create traffic to your blog.  Twitter is also a good source to promote but don’t get too tweet happy with announcing new posts- most of the people following you will also be subscribed to your site and you will be giving them a double whammy.

By using the concepts of attraction marketing and you will make your job that much easier.  You can also submit your post to relevant bookmarking sites and directories.

One of the easiest ways to promote your blog is to comment on other blogs especially those that use the comment luv plugin developed by Andy Bailey.  This is a perfect example of why headlines are so important.  With comment luv there is a line under your comment that links to your last blog post.  If your headline is intriguing you may be surprised by the number of clicks you get. (One tip here- if you are getting ready to publish a new post wait to make your comments until after you publish.  This gives you a fresh link especially if you have made a lot of comments since your last post).


Overall, it is clear that blogging can be very time consuming to those who take it seriously.  Bloggers that have learned how to take what started out as a fun past-time and turn it into a lucrative career have known this all along.  While every post doesn’t have to be a candidate for the Nobel prize you do have to be sure that you are using most, if not all, of these techniques in each one to gain the blogging success you are looking for.

The next time someone makes a comment about why it takes you so much time to write a little blog post you can just smile and think to yourself, blogging is so much more than just writing.

This article is not intended to give you the newbies course about hosting, installing a blog on your domain and etc. It will give you some serious advice on your blog business Bad blogging habits are easy to get into, and one of the worst is to leave your ‘About’ page unchanged. You know the page: it is provided by Word press as standard and a whole host of bloggers leave it unchanged. For more help visit to: they do this is known only to them, because this is the first page that a large number of first-time visitors to a blog check out, and the reason why many of them leave without looking further. All you have to do is to say a little about yourself, who you are, and what your blog is about, why you feel qualified to write a blog about this topic and how you can be contacted. If your blog covers a particular niche, rather than being simply a log of personal comments, then your potential readers will want to know why they should believe what you say by reading…

There is nothing wrong with having a personal blog about your personal thoughts on things, but if you are presenting yourself as a form of expert on a specific topic, then you will have to persuade readers that you have a right to do so. You should use your ‘About’ page to do that. Another tip you should take is to claim your blog with Technocratic. This registers it as yours with Technocratic, and you can get a whole load more visitors. Since joining Technocratic most of my Blogs’ traffic rocketed. It takes a while for new Blogs to get going, but it’s a lot easier if you make use of sites such as Technocratic. The same is true of most of the social Bookmaking sites if traffic is important to you. If you are using a blog to promote a product, then this is essential. If you have a website then doesn?€™t get lazy and be content to run your blog from a hosting site such as wordpress. It is better to download the software from, and host your own blog. You have much more control over the look and feel of it, and can use any of the thousands of plugging that are available online. You can also use any template you want, or even design your own. That way you get total customization of your blog pages, and can make it more distinctive than the majority hosted on Word press or Bolger?€™s site.
If you have tried and had problems downloading and installing it then send me an email. If needed I can take you through it online, or by telephone. These are the two main tips that any Blogger should take if they intend to blog seriously. However, was I to provide the third most important tip for anybody interested in blogging, and then it would be to monetize your blog? Don’t blog for nothing. If your blog concerns a specific niche subject you can likely throw up one or two affiliate programs on your sidebar so that they appear with your new posts. A three column blog is useful for this, since your regular sidebar will generally be full of permanent links. If you monetize using Adsense, a three column layout is even more essential, since you will want a vertical block down one of the columns, in addition to some at the bottom and the middle. A good Adsense layout would be a column to the left or right of the main text column containing a vertical ad unit, a horizontal link unit at the bottom of the blog, and also a horizontal ad unit at the bottom of the latest post. for more help visit could also include a search box at the top or bottom of your main sidebar that allows a search either on Google, from which you get income.

>Building A Blog Audience Through Commenting


Sometimes as bloggers, we overlook some of the most basic tools of the online community. Our commenting behavior can actually make a large impact on our reputation, our traffic, and our audience building.

Make the Most of the Comments You Make

One of the best ways to get others to find your blog is by visiting theirs and leaving comments about their posts and observations. Blogs, especially the popular ones, often form small online communities and fan bases and comments play a huge role in the communicative function of blogs. People will read a comment made by Bill on Bob’s blog, and in turn, start reading Bill’s blog as well. Bloggers tend to check the blogs of those who have visited their favorite blogs and you can develop some regular readers simply by making comments on other blogs.

In many cases, you can leave the URL of your blog in the comments, making it easy for all of that blog’s readers to find you, too. Be careful to remember how your blog comments may affect others, though – when you offer criticism to a blogger, think about how that comment will be received. Are you building a relationship or burning a bridge? Unless you are being anonymous (which is never really recommended), every time you comment, you associate your name and reputation with the comment. Are you willing to stand by that comment and have it represent you in the blogosphere for an indefinite amount of time? Even if you consider the blogger you’re commenting on to be a “competitor” – it’s best not to create controversy in such a way that you could tarnish your reputation. Remember that website content lasts a long, long time.

When leaving a comment on a blog, there are two things you should consider in terms of attracting traffic:

1. Length of the comment: Make sure your comment is at least two to three lines – up to a paragraph if your post is on a topic relevant to your area of expertise.

2. Quality: Make sure your comment is something like a mini-article – it must be informative, unique, and offer a perspective or insight into the topic that the blog post did not provide.

Making the Most of Comments on Your Own Blog

In most cases, as a blogger, it is important to allow comments from your readers, especially other bloggers. This inspires the sense of interactivity and community that makes blogging so attractive to the Web 2.0 world.

You may have to deal with blog comment spam as a result of your willingness to accept comments unless you configure your blog host to help you out – make sure you use the tools they offer to help you combat it. If you can do a word or code verification, it will filter out most. You can also choose to moderate your comments. This can become a time-consuming process down the line if your blog becomes super-popular down the line – it can also slow down the commenting conversation.

Try to allow as much interaction as possible on your blog – it keeps things interesting and interactive. As soon as you start getting comments, respond to them. Keep the dialog going.

Blogs are loved by many because of their interactive nature, so the more lively and interesting the comment section, the better the blog. This, of course, in turn, creates more traffic. If you don’t respond to comments, you cut the the debate short, signaling that it was never a very important feature of the blog anyway. That doesn’t mean that a blogger should necessarily respond to every single comment, but you should always be visible in your own blogging community.

When a person posts a comment on a blog for the first time, surprise them by acknowledging their presence with a simple “Hello”. (Or, if you own a larger blog, and have noticed an influx of new traffic, greet ALL the new readers.) Let them know that they’re welcome. Blog communities (and traffic) are built, after all, one person at a time. Never forget where that community was built from.

>How To Make Money Blogging With 3 Easy Tips


Blogging has become so popular recently that many people have been able to turn it into a full time job. Making money with blogging can be difficult and many people who try do not succeed in their initial attempts. This is not because it is a bad way to make extra money. People tend to fail to make money blogging because they do not approach it in the appropriate way. Blogging for money is a job. While you may work for yourself, just like any other job, it requires knowledge and hard work in order to succeed. I think we can say that about anything in life. For someone who is serious and wants to make money blogging in their spare time, or even making enough money to quit their day job, there are a few good tips that they need to follow.

First, picking a good topic for blogging can be a tough ordeal. Many people want to blog about their hobbies, but if the niche is too small, generating traffic can be difficult. It is important to find a topic which will draw in a good crowd, but it must also be a topic about which you are willing to write. A blog that lacks passion or insight will not retain visitors and will not give them the incentive to use the banner ads on the site, or click through on your affiliate product. This is the primary way most blogs generate revenue, so if the ads or sales fail, the blog may not make any money. Becoming an expert at your particular niche is key.

So how do you go about making the best of your blog? While most people who are considering blogging for money are already web savvy, it is important to be up to date with the latest internet publishing software and websites. An out of date blog, or one which does not take advantage of new methods for increasing traffic, may struggle against technically superior blogs. Blogs today take advantage of things such as RSS feeds and podcasts. By utilizing the latest technologies a blog can keep up with the rest and really stand out. WordPress blogs are especially regraded for their use of ease and plethora of features.

One thing anyone who wants to blog for money needs to remember is that regular visitors will lose interest if the blog is not updated frequently. Updating the blog every day can result in a very high turnover for certain blogs, but may be too much for others. A blog about a rapidly changing medium, business for example, can thrive on daily updates. However, a blog about a hobby such as snowboarding, may be better served by information-rich weekly updates. A blog which is unnecessarily updated may come off as spam to some readers. Despite this, a blog with appropriate and well-written updates will keep readers coming back for more time and time again. Making sure the updates are on a schedule, rather than random, can also keep readers coming back.

Blogging for money does not have to be hard. Do not let the lack of success from others steer you away. Those who are unprepared or not serious about blogging for money will make room for those who want to turn real profit. By doing your research and approaching the blogosphere with a professional attitude, it is very possible to supplement an existing income or replace it all together. Make money blogging today with these 3 easy tips!

The success of a business blog is determined in terms of its traffic in most of the situations. Quality content helps the blogger to keep his blog alive and grow.

There will be many experiences in a life of an average person that strikes him with an inspiration to write a blog. There are no restrictions of time or place for the inspiration to write a post for personal blogging. Nevertheless, for a business blog, time commitment in creating and posting content is crucial.

Whenever you are hit with an inspiration that you think would be good to include in your business blog, just note down those.

Time commitment doesn?€™t just keeps your blog active, it also reflexes your commitment and discipline as a businessperson.

Many successful business blogs are interactive with the targeted readers. They have a passion in them that gives the readers an ease to read and to deliver your message in a simple and straight manner.
