I know, it’s been awhile.. I feel compelled to apoligize for not posting.. I’ll try to do better. But many of the blogs about blogging posts out there tell you to never do this…. Apologize.
I suppose I wouldn’t need to would I since I am the owner of this blog and have left it unattended for months before… So, what’s new about that.. I can be kinda flaky with my online activities… Continue reading “I’m Back Hipsters.”
Doing my usual looking around on “how to blog“, blogs I came across a post with over 200 tips to do it better. One of them was to write a post about Google. So I’m gonna bust one out about the mystery of getting indexed.
I have been blogging since 2003 when blogger first opened and I heard about this new “wave” coming across the Internet. Then I heard about how you can make money blogging. I thought. What the heck? As I studied this further I heard of a guy making “six figures”
Of course I jumped right on in there and started this (and other) blogs.
Now there seems to be TONS of blogs that “teach” you how to become a “professional” blogger. The most famous would be Problogger.com. He comes up right away if you do a search for “blogging” He’s a full time blogger making over $100,000 per year.
Who can argue with success?
I went straight out to a bookstore and slapped down the $30.00 for his book. I learned a few things.. Implemented many of these suggestions on this and another site. I had a lot of fun (like I am now) but only earned about $50.00 and it’s a lot of work, so I slowed down on the blogging and pursued other, uh… Hobbies. (I’ll let you use your imagination)
Now there are 100’s of sites teaching many of the same things that are on the problogger website and book. They all kinda teach the same things. Examples:
Use a “professional” theme (or one that looks like it)
Always be focused on a “niche”
Yea, yea…Whatever… All these sites are basically writing the same thing. How to “build a better blog” and make money with it. They are called the “A” list. And I have learned a lot from them. I have posted a comment here and there on their sites… No reply.. Why would they want to talk to a guy that’s just writing complete nonsense anyways? Ya know… (worthless opinions)
Then there’s this cat named “Griz” He has a totally different view of how to make money online. He is kinda radical and tends to bag on the “A” list dudes. He has a free blogger site up and claims he can now work a few hours a week and then play golf the rest of the time.
I enjoy following his blog but he doesn’t post much… He’s out on the golf course… You dig?
Now, in my search again, I came across a bloke who explains how it’s REALLY done. On his blog he reveals 3 secrets to a popular blog. Hey now, I can dig it. I have kinda tried #3 for awhile. (It’s one of Griz’s methods) But I don’t want to work as hard as he did.. I just want to post wacky stuff in my “niche” – Opinion. And like everybody… I got an opinion on EVERYTHING.
Hey, you ever heard of myspace ? I remember hearing those words years ago. It was brand new then and growing strong… So, I of course joined. See here !
Many web geeks then (and now) can’t stand myspace. But for all the sexual/dating/flirting/cheating computer novices that just want to have fun-You can’t beat it. It has to be the biggest free internet meat market on the net. Why join some kind of paid dating site when there are millions to choose from on MySpace. (If that’s where you go to get dates anyways)
I have been fed up with myspace in the past while having difficulties with a girlfriend that I met there. She seemed to enjoy the excitement on the website more than me. Still, I keep my profile up and check it from time to time… I sometimes promote my blogs on there to try and build my pathetic traffic stats.
Do you like to surf pages at myspace? I always find it hard to read most pages as they tend to put up all kinds of gadgets and background pictures… Gee, It reminds me of yahoo geocities. This is the reason a lot of web designers don’t like myspace.
People sure can have a good time. With all of those “theme” sites out there. So many people are cashing in on myspace’s success…Especially Myspace itself. (800 million in revenue 2008) And, they don’t even have to add content… It’s members do plenty of that. They just monitor the datacenter and fight hackers… No need to actually write anything.
MySpace – Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. But I usually just forget it.
With millions of blogs out there on the internet one has to wonder if what we have to say is useless. Anybody at anytime can simply post whatever they want. Rather they know what they are talking about or not.
Where do Bloggers get their Info?
Don’t believe everything you read, so they say… Apparently people do have a problem with blogging. But you know this is the new millennium. Everybody knows that the internet is unstoppable.. People like myself are going to be blogging about stuff. OUR OPINIONS! Are my blogs inaccurate? I think not…
Are YOU one of us?
If so I hope are reporting what you feel is correct… Freedom of speech-All that good stuff
