Blogging and Social Media tips for people born to blog
Sadly I have seen it so many times. People think there is money to be made on the internet so search for the hottest niche and attempt to create a product about it. They end up trying to write about a subject they have no interest in and do not understand, purely because “that is where the money is”. As a consequence they quickly become bored and discouraged and a month later they have either given up on the whole internet marketing idea completely and are cursing the day they connected their computer to the internet or else had seen another shiny opportunity packed full of false promises and are now chasing after that.
If someone has tricked you into thinking you can become rich overnight then you need to read my blog post The Dark Side Of Internet Marketing! Online success is a long journey that requires perseverance and dedication. When starting out you really do need to choose a niche that you are passionate about, one you enjoy researching and talking about, or else you are doomed to failure before you start. You will encounter many distractions and problems along your pathway to success and you will often feel discouraged. You really do need to start your journey to success by choosing a niche you are passionate about.
If you are passionate about the subject you are writing about it becomes a joy to create your product and you look forward to completing it and sharing it with the world. You become proud of what you are creating and your passion shines through your words bringing your product to life when read by your customers.
In my particular case I recently had my blog hacked. After the initial reactions of anger had subsided I became passionate about securing my blog and have decided to create a product about what I discovered in order to help other people protect their Blogs. I am still creating my “Essential Blog Security” product but because it is a subject that I am genuinely interested in, and am passionate about, it is a joy to write it and I am looking forward to when I can offer it for sale to help others protect their blogs.
Create products you are passionate about and the creation process becomes a joy rather than a chore!
By now I think most people in the world know about blogs.
What most don’t know as there is a great income to be made as well for free.
Rob Benwell is only a mere 24 years old and has already made several million dollars. Early in 2006 he shared his secrets with the world in his highly successful Blogging To The Bank ebook and has made making money online a whole lot easier for everyone.
Just over two years after the success of his first book and over 20,000 copies sold of it and the 2007 2.0 update he is now releasing his third version of Blogging to the Bank helping to wet our appetites and keep the fat bucks rolling in.
I got this book as soon as I could and it covers quite a lot of new information and techniques to adapt your blog to the new demands of the major search engines. Many of the techniques in the old book are now dated and don’t work so well. This is why Blogging To The Bank 2010 is a godsend.
Also this guy doesn’t consider himself to be a “guru”, he’s just a normal guy who wants to help the little guys out. I find this a nice change as he doesn’t talk “down” to you like most of the other guys do. He explains everything in a nice simple manor so everyone can understand.
Saying that when he “goes off on one” it may take a few reads until you get it but when you do it’s just shear genius. Some of the topics in my opinion could have been covered a little more, then others went into great detail. You also get his 5 Blogging Commandments For 2010 that you must follow to give you blogs the greatest success in 2009 and keep them future proofed. This should be printed out and put on the wall of every online marketer without a doubt! His book starts off with market research (so that you are making the most of your time) to building your blogging empire. Everything is covered in this new outing that helps bloggers withtodays online issues regarding making the all mighty search engines happy.
Final Verdict: if you are out there in the blogging world and want to make money the easy way then I highly recommend Blogging To The Bank 2010.
Why work harder than you need to as the new techniques are there ready for you to simply implement.

After a busy couple of weeks I have now finished writing my “A WordPress Blog Of My Own” eBook. I will soon be selling it through my main Made Simple Guides online store but, as promised, I am first offering it free to all my blog visitors.

Simply use the contact form on this blog to share your dreams and ideas with me so we can chat about my personal coaching service. By working together we can explore and develop your dream and I will be happy to assist you reach your full creative potential as you turn your vision into reality.
Although I have received good feedback about my Blogging Made Simple eBook showing people how they can get their own free Blog I have started to receive requests from others wishing to learn how to set up their own WordPress Blog on their own webspace.
Using a free Blog is an excellent, low cost, introduction to Blogging which I would recommend to everyone starting out in the world of Blogging but it does have several limitations:
• You do not own the Blog so they can shut it down whenever, and for whatever, reason they like which could cause you major problems if you have had it running for a while and so made hundreds posts and built up good ranking in Google.
• The website URL addresses of free Blogs does not look very professional. It gives a much better image of your business to call your Blog www.BlogOfMyOwn.com rather than http://awordpressblogofmyown.blogspot.com
• You dont have the freedom to install any of the large number of plugins available for WordPress on your Blog
I have therefore listened to your requests and have started creating my eBook “A WordPress Blog Of My Own” which I intend to offer free to all my Blog visitors as a way of thanking you for stopping by and to help you set up your own self-hosted Blog. My illustrated, step by step, Guide will be packed with screenshots not only showing you how to get your own domain and install WordPress but also how to customise the appearence of your Blog and walk you through how to post messages on it and also how to leave comments on other people’s Blogs. As I said I will be offering it free to all my Blog visitors so if you would like to be informed when I have completed it simply sign up to my newsletter using the signup box on the right hand side of this page.
Dave Nicholson recently released a amazing product called ‘Tweet Dynamite’.
It is a high quality video series that shows you everything you need to do, starting from scratch to totally ‘Exploding’ your Twitter followers. Dave shows you how you can start making serious cash from your Twitter account.
However, personally, the best thing about it is the fact that he shows you how to do all of this on complete Autopilot, and apart from a tiny bit of ‘general maintenance’ there is nothing you need to do once this is set up! Also, there are NO additional costs involved for anything at all, that’s always nice to know! So, in my view, all you need is Tweet Dynamite and you are ready to ‘EXPLODE’ your business, quite literally!
In my opinion this is the best Twitter video series out there, bar NONE!
Dave has a special ‘launch price’ on there at the moment with a MASSIVE DISCOUNT, so I HIGHLY recommend you go take a look!
And if like me, you think this is awesome, grab it while it is still discounted.

Imagine the situation: You have heard your friends talking about their blogs. They are really enthusiastic about them. You have gone online and visited their blogs, like what you see, and think blogs are a really cool idea. You think to yourself “I wish I had a blog of my own” then your mind goes numb as your technical friends start talking about Domains, Blog Hosting, creating a WordPress Blog and you think “I wish I could find a simple to use Blog which was easy to set up and use for free”.
If this is you and you are looking for an easy to follow beginners guide to setting up a free blog then I would recommend that you take a look at Blogging Made Simple.

It takes you through the steps of customising it’s appearance and personalizing it as well as showing you how to post messages onto your new blog and how to leave comments on other peoples blogs.
Why not get a blog of your own and make your dream come true?
