Hello!

The biggest secret to being a “profitable” blogger is blogging about your passion. Blogs that are built with a reason of making money usually don’t make it far and do not make money.

You need to update your blog often. Once a day is the BEST but if you cannot do so, try to update it at least 2-3 times a week – this way your readers will see that you update often, they will come back and read your blog again, maybe click on some ads, buy something from your blog…

If you want to become pro blogger, you need to get steady traffic, you should consider coaching from a problogger, like shoemoney, yaro starak, ewinchia, etc. Learn from the master to become a master. There’s a lot to learn to become a succesful blogger.

Blogger.com is a great place to start or wordpress.com

Best of Luck,

How do I post to my wordpress blog from my desktop, without 3rd party software?

Question by Nate L: How do I post to my wordpress blog from my desktop, without 3rd party software?
Hi,

I want to post directly to my wordpress blog from my desktop, specifically from Command prompt.

I know there is a protocol called xml-rpc, but that is of no help to me, as I don’t know what on earth it is. Any help would be appreciated.

Someone did it with Linux:

The only way I could think of, and it’s not strictly command line, is a LYNX browser – which is a text browser that you call from the command prompt. Google Lynx for windows – if that’s what you have. It was originally for Unix and ported to Windows.

Is anything better then WordPress for building a web presence for a small Business?

Question by Mick: Is anything better then WordPress for building a web presence for a small Business?
I have been told to go and open a WordPress blog account to make web mini sites (web presence) and I am wanting to know if you have better ideas or simply more ideas? Advise for WordPress would be great as well!

It depends on the time and budget you have.

Despite the ease of setting up wordpress as a blogging platform, there is a fairly long learning curve to determine what is exactly right for your business, and if you are trying to run a business, it could be distracting from your core business.

These are some of the things to bear in mind:

1) Do you want a domain with your company name? e.g. ‘yourcompanyname.com’

You can check for the name you want in places like:

http://goo.gl/X3E2i

or

http://instantdomainsearch.com/

If you go with this option, there are other blogging/Content Management Systems that are also available with wordpress such as joomla, drupal, but these are slightly more complex.

If you do not want a company blog dedicated domain space, then you can get something like ‘yourcompanyname.wordpress.com’, this will be free. Other free blogging platforms are typepad, blogger, and a few more so you can get ‘yourcompanyname.blogger.com’ also.

2) How much information will you be putting on the blog, that will determine your webhosting plan you want if you decide to buy a domain for your company blog. Most basic plans are big enough to handle business blogs. Most places selling the domain can offer web hosting

3) Consider if you actually need another website if you already have a company website. You can just add a sub-domain to it or another section in blog format. If you want a seperate site, then you want to consider things like templates for your blog, designing it so it fits your business and easy to navigate for customers.

4) Depending on how much experience you have inhouse (which I am guessing is not too much as you are asking here?), you could consider hiring a programmer to do it all for you on places like elance.com, peopleperhour.com, odesk.com… they are all basically freelancing websites to get skilled help.

5) Then the other thing is, do you really need a blog? Can your company write articles on professional sites or article sites to submit your company website link if you already have a website.

6) If you don’t have a website, you could list your business on places like business.com, alibaba.com, facebook, twitter account where you regularly tweet related business links, etc.

Basically, I am asking you to check if your business needs a blog. A blog is to be regularly updated, needs traffic to bring you benefits of being online, also needs regular reviews to ensure you are getting back results.

Consider consulting a small business specialist like econsultancy.com to ensure you choose the right service for you business so as not to burn energy where not needed. The online world and social media space is incredibly complex.

What blogging site can I start a blog and actually get viewers or subscribers?

Question by Help4u: What blogging site can I start a blog and actually get viewers or subscribers?
I am trying to find a good blogging site where I can actually get viewers or readers to view my blog. I have tried blogspot and live journal with no real success. Does anyone know of any good sites where I can actually blog and get readers?

Another thing is any tips to get readers to your blogs? Should you follow a theme or how do you need to advertise or if you keep posting will they come to you?

Please no spam. Thanks
