The Right Blogging Platform For Your Needs

Choosing which blogging platform to use is one of the
most important decisions that you can make as a
blogger. The right platform can make blogging a
breeze - and the wrong platform can make blogging a
chore. Because the program that you use to blog with is
such a powerful part of your blogging experience - it is
well worth putting in the time to find a platform that
provides your ideal balance between a user-friendly
interface and a flexible framework that allows you to
make your blog look and feel unique. Finding the right
platform isn't always easy - but with a little bit of
contemplation and a little bit of research - you will be on
your way to finding the perfect blogging platform.

Deciding what your priorities are in terms of ease of use
versus customization. Most highly customizable
blogging platforms - like movable type - are a bit more
difficult to use than very automated platforms like
wordpress. If you are new to blogs and to Internet
technology - you might want to sacrifice the ability to
create a custom background design or to integrate a
unique font into your template in order to find a
program that will be easy for you to use. On the other
hand - if you are a veteran web designer with knowledge
of HTML or javascript - you will probably find the
limitations of a user-friendly platform to be frustrating.

There is no such thing as a blogging platform that is
objectively the best platform - because every blogger has
unique needs. The blogging movement is very much
about individuality - so it makes plenty of sense that
there would be many different platforms available that
are designed to meet the needs of different kinds of
individuals undertaking different kinds of projects. This
diversity is a good thing - because it means that you will
almost certainly be able to find a program that suits
your level of technical aptitude.

However - the fact that no two bloggers need the same
thing from a blogging platform can make your search
for the right platform a bit tricky. When you are reading
reviews of different platforms - try to keep your
priorities in mind and do your best to take into account
the position that the reviewer is coming from. For
example - a negative review written by an accomplished
software designer who complains that a popular
platform is too limited may tell you that the platform in
question is ideal for a beginning blogger. There is no
such thing as the perfect platform for everybody - so
instead of looking for the 'best' platform - look for the
best platform for your specific criteria.

Using A Free Blogging Web Site

When you’re new to blogging - a free blogging web site is a good way to get started. Popular blogging web sites like Blogger and Eponym allow users to set up and host a blog for no cost at all. The fact that one of these sites can provide you with all of the tools that you need to get your blog up and running for free - encourages people to start a blog. As it’s free - you don’t have anything to lose. Many people that have never had any other kind of web presence before find themselves drawn to blogging - partly because it is so easy to find a way to blog for free.

Compared to starting your own blog from scratch - signing up with a free blogging web site will get you listed in search engines much easier. For example - Google - that runs the free blog hosting site Blogspot - crawls its pages very often to look for updates. As a result - if you have a Blogspot blog - you are almost guaranteed to be listed on Google's blog search engine. This way you can spend less time on promoting your blog - and you can gain a following with a minimum of marketing effort.

If your blog attracts many readers - you may want to think about moving your site. Many people think that a blog that is hosted by a free blogging web site has a kind of amateur flavor - not appropriate for a high-profile blog. Your own domain name can help you make your blog feel professional - and finding a webhost is not difficult or expensive. Once your blog starts to attract a large readership - you will probably be able to sell enough advertising space to be able to afford to buy your own domain and pay for a hosting package - and still have money left over. However - until you have a sizeable readership - there’s really no need to invest in these luxuries.

When you want to build a following before you spend any money on your blog - using a free blogging website is a good idea. Later - when you feel ready to take the next step and pay for your own domain - your readers will follow you to your new home.

5months of Online money making.

It has been an interesting five months since I started working online. In those few months I have learned so much from SEO, different types of Web Hosting options like HostPapa and diffrent sites to buy websites New Customer 25% off Sale from! When I just started I was using blogger to promote topics that just did not garner any useful click and unique visitors. Now that I have been studying more and understand a little about internet marketing; I feel a little less stressed.

When I first started back in December 2010, I was hoping I would make a quick buck and be able to make money with little to no work. I was foolish, now I understand there are few overnight success stories but people who dedicate their live at learning how to promote items. Some of the options many people are takaing seriously is affiliate marketing like witch gives you many opportunity to find company's who are needing people who can promote their items.

The HTML banner above will be my next project starting soon. I have found one needs to make sure you write articles a couple months in advance to ensure you article has time to be found by the search engine.

Many people wonder how you can start making money in a couple month with legit online work. Blogging and article writing are a couple options if a user do not have a lot of money to spend if any  Squidoo Earn cash

I hope with all the knowledge I have learned will help make enough money so I can take more time off to support my family.

HubPages and Articles Writing Update

I have been working hard recently trying to figure out how I can kick start my article writing online. I have been implementing some new techniques that have shown that my daily views has risen since trying the new techniques.I have been using most of my time to crate enough of quality and well written work, so that I can have a fighting chance to earn a passive income.

On February 4th, 2011 I created my first Hub on HubPages. I was doing a lot of writing and SEO work over on Info Barrel, then InfoBarrell changed there site up a little. Since then I have published 15 Hubs between the first month of being with Hub Pages. Here our nmy online stats ffor the forst month
  • 274 visits
  • 666 page views
  • 2.43 pages per visit
  • 59.85 bounce rate
  • 7:54 seconds average time on site
  • 21.90 new visits
  • Direct Traffic:138 views
  • search engine views 106
  • Referring-sites-view: 30
With these stats I have found out that I am about average when it comes to proficiency. I was creating Hubs about every day items and dissions people have to make. I learned how to use the Keyword machine that Google allows people to use.

After my birthday I have been becoming more of a member with HubPages, by communicating, commenting, and answering questions. I also am running a social network campaign to see if social media helps out with views and if it does what does it do.These are my stats for the last 12 days since implamenting the new campaign.

I have seen a steady increase with views and visits. My bounce rate has shot up, but that is due to the Campaign. I have broke my 1,000 views since stating and my next goal will be 5,000 total views.

Understanding How to Make Money Online

I have been trying to make money online for around 3 months now. I can now say making money online is one of the hardest things to do. There are so many different ways to make money, and mixed in are so many scams.To truly learn how to make money online has been hard. I understand there are not that many different ways to make money then people really think. You just need to learn the different terminology and understand some SEO concepts.

What I am trying to say is these are the following ways that I have learned How to Make money online. I am not saying there are more ways, but I will not promote anything that has not made me money. I will post an estimated amount, that an average person using the proper skills can expect to make. Well earnings can be drastically different , don't despair.

Content Creation

Creating content for people who need it for there blogs and websites is a decent way to make money. Webmasters and article writers are looking for writer who can crate original and well researched content. They will send you a list of researched keywords that you will have to make a predetermined amount of word article. Proper grammar and nicely formatted work is what the people are looking for. You do not need to be limited to work other people are looking for. Creating your own content will give you an opportunity to make some passive income. With creation of a website that is promoting a certain object or item will give you an opportunity to make money from Amazon, Google Adsense, and Ebay.

To sum up the last paragraph , with your writing skills money is to be made. It will take some time, but if you use proper keyword search and form your article and or website properly, you make have a decent flow of money. I have earned roughly $1,000 from content creation, and it truly helps with bill payments.

I also understand that there will be sacrifices to ensure I make enough money to survive on in the future. I will not put up non researched work that has fluff, but will be focusing on 5 niche topics that are proven money makers.

Update on Info Barrel. 1st week of the year

I am currently working on making an impact on Info Barrel. I am currently researching all of the possible ways to make money consistently while learning how to write proper articles also. The website as I have said before is relatively new and the majority of the posters all ready on are doing good. The average so far for writer that are consistently producing quality articles are around  400 - 700 a month. While there are a few people who have made a name for them selves they are the exception.  Earning can be made if you can produce quality article ranging around 1000 words. Subject may or may not produce more in earnings.

I have produced three articles so far to date. While the articles have not made any money I am also trying to figure what type of submission proses they are imposing. It does not take to long from the moment your press publish to the time they approve the articles. I am trying also to figure out why my articles have page views before and don't seem to get any after.

Continuing to write quality articles while pushing out the amount of articles will be hard. Time is the biggest hassle not the subjects to write about.
