When I first wrote my original “Why I Hate Blogs” for article submission I was pretty sure that the humor would get some hits but in my wildest dreams I never thought that out of the 26 articles I did write that it would be second in the amount of the hits it did get. Actually it was dark humor because I honestly do hate spending the time blogging away or let us be more specific – I honestly DID hate spending that time.
Traditional safelists are becoming somewhat threadbare. Isn’t it amazing how quickly business changes on the ‘Net, and isn’t it weird how safelist people ‘spin their wheels’ by posting, posting, posting, when most messages go to ‘junk’ in-boxes to be automatically deleted. You can send out a whole lot of messages with safelists, but only a tiny percentage are likely to be actually read by a real person. Maybe that’s why email traffic is threatening to choke the Internet. Because of this, many canny web business people have now shifted to blogs as their main tool for promotion. Many others, like me – who continue to believe that safelists have a role (when properly used) -have made Learning a valuable extra facility in their marketing toolboxl.
Personal blogs are everywhere; they give people a place to share life long events. They give people a place to express their creative sides and talents; most of all they give people a place to meet people. With the hustle and bustle of today’s hard working society many people simply don’t have the time to meet and make new friend, contacts, or acquaintances Though we still long for stimulating conversation we rarely find it. In personal Blogs people have the chance to share the things with everyday people they would normally share with friends. Like posting vacation photos, stories they heard that day, even just a funny joke someone told at work. People share their opinions on current world events, to even house and garden issues.
What I like about Pat is he’s very open. He was the first blogger I come across that actually disclosed his earnings online (Every month he does a report which includes how much he made, where he made this money, and any lessons learned). He also strives to have a real relationship with his readers, replying to a large numbers of comments and talking to your personally on his Facebook page.
Of course, this type of exposure will have the SEO guys pulling their hair out as you can rise to the top in the Google charts pretty quickly without their help. A “Win-Win” blog if you like!
Furthermore, with online blogs, you could adjust the settings so that each entry would be located in one separate web page. This means that if you publish 100 entries, all of which contain a link to your main website, you’d have 100 back links just like that!
Blogs are simply the cheaper way to get ahead not only on search engines but everywhere else on the internet as well. With it, you’ll get the traffic you need at half the cost. What’s more, you don’t have to rely on anybody to get your site going. You can set it up yourself, update it with entries, and maintain it to ensure its integrity. No need to pay for a professional. And the only thing you really need to brush up your writing skills.
You can skim the headlines and only read the ones that jump out at you or save others for later. This gives you complete control over what you read. It’s also possible to search blogs and old archives of blogs when you’re looking for something in specific that might help you in the game.
