I feel compelled to post this because I want everyone to beware Coronavirus prevention emails and messages that are circulating out there. When I received this email I was so excited I was going to do a video to share it with all my viewers. Before doing that I decided to check it’s veracity and I’m so glad I did. It turns out to be bogus. Instead, I produced a video called, Coronavirus And Doing The Right Thing.
Beware Coronavirus Prevention Emails And Messages
This is the message I received in its entirety. At the end of the email, I’ll link to some sites that debunk some of the stuff in the email.
Blogging has never been easy and what makes it extremely difficult is the amount of competition in the blogging world. That’s when I decided I needed to develop my best blogging tactics to try and improve my blogging edge.
My Best Blogging Tactics
Show people you’re serious about Blogging
There are a lot of bloggers out there who use either free themes or who blog on free platforms so they don’t have to shell out for hosting fees. I decided long ago, that if I was going to be a serious blogger, I had to treat it as a business. Like all businesses, I knew that meant some sort of cash investment. So, how have I invested in my blogs?
Hosting Your Own Blog
Hosting my blogs on my own servers was my first investment. This was important to me because I used to blog on those community blogging platforms only to have them close down. What a waste of time and effort! Hosting your own blog means you never have to worry about someone closing you down. There are also SEO benefits of hosting your own blog. I’ve listed the hosts I use in my Making Money Online post. Blog
The first thing I did was find the perfect theme for me. The Thesis theme was my first paid theme. Unfortunately, it wasn’t what I was looking for. I wrote a post about how it just wasn’t flexible enough. Finally, I settled on the FlexSqueeze Theme which did everything I expected from it. I’m not sure how long that will last though as the developer seems to have gone awol.
Great Blog Content
There are a lot of great bloggers out there which means yours has to be as good or better to be noticed. The worst thing you can do is to write great content only to have its value deteriorated by poor grammar. This is why I consider Grammarly to be my best investment! I’ve found Grammarly to be the most comprehensive, automated grammar editing tool that checks for 250+ types of standard and advanced English grammar rules.
I’ve even produced a video to show how Grammarly works with my in-depth review of it. Grammarly would have to be my best blogging tactics to make sure I keep up with the best of them.
You probably don’t know that this isn’t my only blog. Nope, I’ve actually got quite a few blogs although I don’t have the time to update them all regularly. I’ll include a list of all my blogs at the end of this post.
When I do get to write a post on them though I occasionally come up with one or two pretty interesting posts. I thought it would be a great idea to post some of my best posts here.
Exposing The Truth About Thesis V2.03
I’ve done 2 posts exposing what I believe to be the truth about a theme I used to use. One on my Load Of Bullshit blog and the other on WassupBlog. What I am really wrapped about is that both post appear at the top of Googles search engine.
Ditto for the image search. Actually a lot of the images I design using the Logo Creator rank pretty well in the search engines. Naturally that doesn’t have anything to do with the Logo Creator as it’s more to do with alt tags and such.
I’m actually really wrapped that they’re ranking so well.
Talking about my Load of Bullshit blog. I wrote an expose just the other day about MOBE. After doing a bit of research I came to the conclusion, if it looks like a duck, sound like a duck it’s probably a duck. There are a lot of people out there promoting MOBE but it’s not something that I would be able to promote and still be able to sleep at night.
A Loving Memorial: A blog that came about after the death of Josie Zollo, my beautiful sister-in-law.
WellBlogMe: My first blog which I originally started because I read that Google loved changing content and I figured a blog was the way to do it. As this blog was part of my The Elusive Pot Of Gold domain I thought that any PR gained by the blog would pas onto the main site and I reckon it did.
SBizzTech: My third blog was a journey into sharing my experience in the business and technology sector. My technology knowledge is rather limited but I thought it necessary to give me a leg in gaining some ‘paid post’ opportunity in this field. Paid Posts are where you get paid to write posts for companies and are virtual ‘blogging ads’, something which I feel is a necessary evil for earning money in this world of ours.
What A Load Of Bullshit: I started this in an effort to expose as much of the scam, spam, rip off merchants and as much crap as possible that is happening in this world of ours in order that it will affect less people.
Scenic Adelaide: My first photo blog where I proudly display photos of Adelaide and surrounding districts. Also has reviews of restaurants and cafes that I sometimes frequent.
Photos2Blog: My full on photo blog. I started this so that I could show off the photos that would not fit into my Scenic Adelaide blog. Where possible I try to pass on relevant information about each photo as well as any tips I can pass on.
