Drafting The Perfet Post?

Just what is the perfect post? It’s several things really… things like subject matter, attention to detail, length, how well you convey your message, and so on. I’m not really even sure if it can be done, I don’t think I’ve personally ever written the perfect post, I’ve read about it, but have yet to find it.

I think that as long as you put you heart into it and your happy with your work then it just may be the perfect post. If you can take something that is not easy or even fun to do and make it sound easy and interesting then you may have what it takes to write the perfect post.

I however don’t have those skills, I get ahead of myself and even leave things out. Then again that’s one of the great things about having your own blog, nothing is set in stone and it all can be changed. I really like how easy WordPress makes it to edit your past posts.

I’m never really truly happy with any of my work, and will go back and read over some of my past work. I will then change it if I see something wrong or maybe even delete the whole thing. Also the perfect post is one that doesn’t try to do all the work on its own, it uses other resources and is not afraid to send people to another site for more information.

I have a couple dozen posts that have been in the draft stage for months, because I don’t feel like they are good enough to be published. You don’t always need pictures or video in your posts to make them perfect, just like you don’t have to try to sell something with every post… hey don’t look at those AdSense ads they appear everywhere because of an plugin.

I could go on and on about stuff that is way to hard to achieve, what really matters is if you are happy with it and others don’t tell you how much it sucks then you can tell yourself that you have written a post that is as close to perfect as you can get… then you see that you’ve misspelled four or five words and you used four or five ands in a sentence and stuff like that lol.

Blogging Basics

So you want to be a blogger but your not sure where to start or even what to blog about. Well I’m going to walk you step by step on how to get started with blogging. It’s really not all that hard, the hardest part is picking out a domain name that fits what you want to blog about.

Take my blog for example it’s about blogging and blogging to everyone in the world, ok so maybe I haven’t gotten that far yet, but I’m working on it and people like you can help by sharing anything you like about this site on social networks or with your friends but that’s really another topic for another time… moving on.


Picking A Topic: Step One
The very first thing you should do is make up your mind on just what you want to blog about, who your target market is. Will you blog about blogging, making money, fashion, cooking, social networking, camping, travel, fishing, golf, health care, government affairs, etc. You can blog about anything you like you just need to have an interest in it that will transfer in how you write about your chosen topic.


Picking A Name: Step Two
You should pick a good name for your blog something catchy, that relates to your subject, and is easy to remember. Think about all the well known blogs about pets, blogging (not mine), making money, and so on. They all have different things about their names that relate to what they cover, mostly… so started with a different focus and shifted gears later on.

You’ll want something that is not overly long, but sometimes the name you come up with may not be available for when you go to pick your domain name. This is not really a big issue, you can use just the letters of the name is you have more than one word in your name, I could have went with bttw.com or something like that if I wanted to.


Step Three: Getting Your Domain and Web Hosting
A domain name is your address on the internet, just like you have a physical address for your home you have a domain name so people can find your blog/website whatever you want to call it. If you are starting a new blog you may as well get a domain name and hosting package in the same place at the same time.

There are a whole lot of web hosts out there that offer deals on domain names and have low cost hosting, I’ve used about ten of them over the years for different sites that I started in the past, some failed because I didn’t know what I was doing, others failed because I just got lazy and forgot about them, and one got stolen because I didn’t have the money to pay for my domain name and when I got it someone had already snatched it.

Anyway here are three hosts that I really happen to like, the links are all affiliate links but you can Google the names if you like, I need money but I’m not doing this just for the money. If you click the links it does not effect how much you’ll pay, it just means that they will pay me a few cents to a few dollars. (Still waiting to be approved for Host Gator and Go Daddy)

  1. Host Gator | Get started for $3.95 a month, of course it can be more upfront depending on how long you pay in advance. Good Host, easy to use, easy to work with. Like most comes with a free domain with paid hosting plan.
  2. Blue Host | Same price as Host Gator, easy to use, simple to work with, has a better c-panel interface.
  3. Go Daddy | One of the big boys, they were the second web host I ever used and they were good, but it had too much going on and was hard to get around the site to the right area, but it looks like they have that fixed now.

Step Four: Decide On What Blogging Platform to Use
Now that you have you nice spiffy domain name and hosting account you need to pick something to help you manage your blog. I personally use WordPress because it’s free, has tons of addons, plugins, and themes. And the documentation is extensive so learning it is a snap.

Lets say you pick WordPress, inside you admin area of your webhost lies your CPanel or Control Panel. It allows to install different tools that can allow you to setup a blog, an online store, message board, etc. It does everything for you so it’s easy to do on your own.

There is really nothing to it after that, pick a theme that works for you and a few plugins that fit your needs. All you have to do then is whip up some interesting articles and other content like pictures and video if it fits and get everything looking good with some good content and your done… well not quite but your ready for the next step.


Step Five: Get Some Traffic
Your blog is looking great and your been plugging away for a couple of days now, your content is on point and you feel really good about it. So what do you do now?

Well you submit it to the search engines like Google and put your like in front of as many people as you can just about every day. Add your site to the end of your emails. Add it to all of your social profiles, join some message boards and make relevant posts and comments, be sure to have your like in your profile.

Make posts on Facebook and Twitter from time to time asking people to check out your new blog or share some of your articles. If your posts contain images you can share those on all of your social account Pinterest and Instagram included. Google+ may not be as popular as Facebook or Twitter but you shouldn’t over look it. You want as many people to see your link each day as you can get.


Step Six: Getting Paid
So now that you’ve gotten some traffic and have the plugins in place where people can share your content with others then why not get paid for it. There is no reason not to earn money from your work, either by selling your own products and services or those of others.

Hope over to Google and signup for AdSense if you like, it’ll take you a while to earn anything but once you get your traffic levels high enough then you’ll start seeing some good returns. Also check into ClickBank and other affiliate networks, this will open up a world of products that you can sell. You can also check into Amazons associate program but I would hold off a little until you get some traffic because if you don’t make a sale in a few months then they’ll drop you from the program and you’ll have to signup again.

You’ll need to do some research on what products to offer but they should fit your blog. Amazon will give you access to a ton of products that can fit into any category, books, music, movies, games, electronics, you name it and Amazon is a trusted name so people see the Amazon link and they will be more likely to click on it.


Well that about wraps up the basics of starting a blog, no matter if your starting a blog as a hobby, a source for extra income, or a full blown business you can get a good start by following these steps. There are more advanced steps that you can take like paid search engine placement, Facebook and Twitter ads, and lots more.

You can even have some business cards printed out, make guest post on other peoples blogs, submit articles to article directories all with your link on them. Some even allow you to add your own affiliate links which not only helps you get more traffic it can help you make more money.

My Six AdSense and ClickBank Affiliate Sites Review

I just got the links to six sites I ordered over this past weekend, it was only supposed to take 48 hours but took all week. I have to say that I’m not impressed with the design, the content, or the navigation. I really don’t like the way they look. As long as it took they should have done a better job or given me a rebate.

However they do contain some useful information but they could have been better! I should have gotten some control on the backend where I could change things because they truly suck in the design area. These sites are intended to make me money, however I don’t see that happening, but I could be wrong.

They sent me sites in the following niches… Banking, Cars, Cell Phones, Insurance, Real Estate, and Web Hosting.. The order was supposed to be for five sites, but I guess they tossed in an extra because it was taking so long. I’m going to give these a couple of weeks before I request a refund if I don’t make a dine… in the meantime I will submit them to Google and other search engines in hopes of getting traffic to them and maybe someone will click on the AdSense or ClickBank ads.

If you check them out be warning that the navigation is crappy, the home and sitemap links are at the bottom of the pages, why on earth would they do this is beyond me. I designed better website when I was twelve and that was a long time ago. Sure simple sites can still make money but when most people see these thing they will be like WTF I’m not clicking on this crap.

Now here is the thing, these sites contain 300 pages of content each, each page containing my affiliate links which is great, but as I read over them some have minor errors that I would never make. Also you will notice two links at the bottom of each page, Home and Site Map, click on Site Map to gain access to the rest of the pages. Feel free to click on all the AdSense ads you like or ClickBank products I need the money lol.

Anyway I will update this post again in a few weeks I’m going to list these sites in the search engines tonight and see how it goes, I’m also going to go one step further and post them on my Facebook, Twitter, Facebook Page, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts. I don’t have a lot of followers but maybe some traffic will start to seep to these pages, that would be awesome.

It doesn’t matter if you click on those sucky links or not I don’t own them anymore I missed my payment because I had to use the money I made from affiliate links to pay some other bills.

Simple Ways to Speed Up Your Blogging

Writing blog posts can be time consuming and a lot of work but they don’t have to be. There are a whole lot of little tweaks, hacks, and tips you can use to hone your post/article writing skills, in this article I’ll share with you a dozen or more things that you can do to speed up your writing skills and I’ll also share what works for me.

For starters lets me say that everyone has his/her own style and using what works well for others may not be the best way for you. However it never hurts to impalement things that work for others into what works for you, who knows you may combine the techniques to produce the best, fastest writing method ever.

Alright for starters when writing an article it’s a good idea to have an idea of what you want to write about, no pun intended. Have a place that you feel relaxed to work in, for me this is just sitting back in bed, on the front porch swing, or in a rocking chair as long as it doesn’t make my butt hurt. Also the more you can write the more potential money you can make, not always true some people get lucky and write just a few and make some good money, but this article is not about making money that comes later.

Once you are in your zone, your work area is setup, and you have the idea for your post in your head you could just start banging away at the keys and this works for some, not so well for other. Some people are gifted with the ability to just flow through articles like it was part of their diet and crank out ten or twenty articles a day, while the rest of us are lucky if we get done writing one of two.

Here is what I like to do before I go to sleep. I take a pen and a tablet [paper notebook] and write out ideas for post topics. Some of them I know a good deal about and others I need to do a little research on, for the ones that I’m a little iffy on I place an asterisk * by.

The next morning or whenever I get started, I start by finding the place I’m going to do my best work at, open up my laptop, open up my notebook, turn my phone on silent, lay my Android tablet nearby just in-case I need to research more than I can on my laptop.

Once my laptop is on I open OpenOffice and add in post title then start filling it in with everything I want to cover or know about the subject, I also open up a web browser and do a search on the subject to see how many other article are online. I then open a couple of the top ones in new tabs, and even a couple for a few pages away in the search.

I then glance over them to see if there is anything in them that could make my article better. I read them quickly, take a few notes if there is not much that could help me and move on to the next one. I never just copy the work of someone else, I may take a key point that is common or if it is unique to their article I’ll copy it and add their name and site to it.

That is something you just don’t do, never steel the content that someone else worked on. Use it if you must but be sure that the credit goes to them, or better yet ask them some bloggers may have no problem with you using some of their work for a link back to their site.

Anyway moving on to writing faster. I like to do most of my work offline, well drafting it off line and once I’m done I copy it to my blog as a draft where I’ll tweak it a bit. [That’s to funny not to mention, I was typing tweak, but didn’t hit my a key hard enough so my auto-correct made it twerk]

Alright all joking aside, well maybe not all joking that would make it a very dull read, even more so that it already it so just deal with it ;). Ok moving on… many good and great bloggers agree that using a simple structure for your posts is a great way to speed up the writing structures like lists.

They also say it’s a good idea to play around with your headline, hack it a little you don’t want the same title as ten-thousand other articles, you want to stand out a bit, but still be in the same group… headlines like 7 Ways to Earn More Money Online, How-to Achieve Your Goals, or whatever. Just play with them and you’ll come up with something.

You’ll want you headline to provide a benefit that your readers will be drawn in by and make them want to read your post. You can write your article however you like, you can start with a simple list of tips and expand from there adding sub-headlines to help explain things a little better and break it down into more readable content. People tend to digest things in smaller doses. I’m not saying to skip on all the great content you are writing, just to break it up a bit, when will even make your article/post look a bit longer.

Give an inspiring conclusion or your best tips at the end, you can even add a call to action to get your readers to subscribe to your list but that’s another topic altogether. Introductions are important but when you write them is not that important, some people do it before they start on the main content of their article and some do it after the article is done.

I mainly do my introduction before I start writing, and usually only do one draft because I don’t go back and change the spelling of words I do that while I’m writing, which is not the best way to do things if your looking to bang out ten article a day or more but it works for me.

Sometimes mistakes are alright for some bloggers, as long as people know what you are talking about. I personally try to avoid them but sometime overlook them especially when I was doing all my work online. I never did like looking too stupid unless it’s just for fun lol.

Anyway I could go on and on and on, but for your sake and mine here are some quick tips in list form and I don’t want to start breaking one of my new habits that being a one hours time limit per post, and if I can get done faster then great yeah me.

Quick List of Speed Tips:

  • Come up with ideas for posts in advance | this reduces wasted time you can do this by making a list.
  • Make an outline each and every time | Use you idea, start with the key points, you can expand on them after your basic outline is done. Every topic will be varied depending on what’s it about but the basic just of it is.
    • An Introduction
    • You main content
    • Facts, case studies if any
    • and Conclusion
  • Breaking your outline down into bullet points that help move through the post can help greatly, they should have a beginning, a middle, and an ending.

Added Tips:

Reaching is a great and sometimes fun way to come up with great content for your next post or even the one your working on now and using the right tools and make it even better. You spend an hour or two the night or morning before you plan to write coming up with ideas and then doing some research, take some notes, and when you start you article you should breeze through it.

Once your are writing don’t stop, if you come to a point that you need to do a little more research on or fact checking just mark it with an asterisk, X, highlighter, brackets, or whatever. Once your done with the first draft while the idea is still fresh in your head then go back and edit the points you marked.

Most professional writers don’t stop after every sentence or paragraph, they wait until they are finished before they go back and edit it. Unless they are highly productive and nail it on the first try, but hey we are human we make mistakes, we are not perfect and even our computers screw up from time to time. The point is if you stop after every sentence to change, refine, and edit your post it will take hours to get it published.

Just write the whole thing in one setting. Granted there are times when your on the go and an idea hits for a great post, well you can write out a quick title and key points then and fill it in when you get time, but for the most part when you start an article finish it staying within your outline.

Once this first draft is done, then go back and change the errors and add to it if needed and remover stuff that just does not make sense. Add your images and other media at this time if you have any.

Don’t Worry About Being Perfect

Your not writing literature your writing a blog post so it’s alright if it’s not perfect. However you should correct any typos, grammar, and spelling mistakes just so you don’t look like too much of a dummy. The awesome thing about blogging is that you can always go back an change it and fix anything that you may have missed.

After all we are human and our eyes get tired so we sometimes miss things the first, second, or even third time around. I know I have and still do, I’ve looked over some of my old posts and while reading it come across something that made me say WTF, well if I said it then how many others said it… so I edit it real quick in hopes no one else will see it, it doesn’t happen often but it happens.

Like the old saying goes practice makes perfect, or close to it I say. You need to train yourself to just write, you may want to go back and waste time, don’t move on. Your writing will suffer, I fix most of my errors as I type now, but not always, like I said not every tip is for everyone you have to find what works for you, using these tips can save you a butt load of time.

I do only fix my errors after each paragraph or section, never after each word or sentence. Also work using a timer, this timer can be used to say OK your done for the day, or hey take a break and clear your head. It could also be used to let you know that you are getting close to you time limit.

Lastly take a break, if you run into a road block just save your work [better do that often], get up and take a walk, a nap, watch a movie, have sex, whatever gets you out of your funk, do anything but think about your post. After a bit of a break get back to work and you maybe surprised that you start to flow.

Also don’t expect that you can cover everything, that’s the great thing about the internet. You can link to other sites that explain things a little better, no sense in reinventing the wheel, I don’t think it’ll give you a smoother ride using any other shape.

Keep Your Notes and Other Research Organized:

Being organized can really help speed thing up, it also takes time to put all those notes, ideas, links, and other research into one place that just works, for a time I used Google Keep and still may dip into it a bit but now I use Evernote, sure it cost a little if you want more but the basic features are enough for most people.

Any tool can work as long as you use it, heck even online like Google Drive and Docs are a good way to go. It gives you a place to store your documents, notes, photos, video, sex tapes… uh cough… never mind that last part, you can store anything you like and access it from any device you like as long as you have internet access and remember your password.

I personally like to give myself two hours for research and post writing, then allow about half an hour for editing. Also here is a tip that may not speed up your writing but make it look a bit better… add some white-space.

Other Sites With Great Information:

Well there you have it that is all I have for this article until I decide to make it better, or cut out the fluff. Anyway I hope you enjoyed it and found it a little informative, please leave any suggestion you may have or would like to see in this article in the comments. I will read them, and add them to the list and keep the best ones for myself… cough you can’t see that last part, you are getting sleepy.

Not A Very Good Month Just Like The Rest Of My Year

Oh well that’s life, had to go to the ER Sunday apparently I may have a gallstone and a kidney infection oh the sheer joy lol, it made me feel like I was having a heart-attack. Anyway like most of this year this month is turning out to be very unprofitable and unlike most affiliates I don’t mind showing you what failure looks like.

As you can see I’ve been plugging away on this site, Facebook, and Twitter but have not made the first sale. It’s disappointing but not to the point that I just want to curl up and quit. I will just keep trying until something works. I have not made any money in affiliate marketing in years and that was when I didn’t need money and was just goofing off, now that I need it I can’t make it lol go figure.

So what are my next steps? Well I plan on building more followers on Twitter, figure out how to get more friends on Facebook and Google+, get more traffic to this site and my Facebook Fan Page. I’m not trying to just push a bunch of junk on people I pick some useful products, products that I have or would use and promote them.

It seems that people are very untrusting of affiliate links, well don’t be buying an item through an affiliate link changes nothing for you. The only difference is the seller of the product has to pay me or whom ever is promoting the product a commission and that comes from their end. You don’t get a discount just because you go directly to the website and not through the link, that just means that the seller gets 100% of the money and I the affiliate get 0%, as sad as that is that is how some people think.

They think that if they click on an affiliate link they’ll have to pay more, but they don’t and in some cases they may pay more. Especially if the affiliate is promoting a program that is offering a discount. Most likely the discount only applies to the affiliates link, because it was done through an affiliate network and just going to the sales page without using the link just make it cost more with no discount.

I’m not out to get rich, as much as I wouldn’t mind being wealthy and all it’s not what I’m after, I just want to earn a modest income maybe $10,000.00 to $20,000.00 a month. Which when you figure I will have to pay taxes on it, and bills, food, insurance, and so on it’s really not that much. If I were to make $20,000,00 a month I would bring home only about $13,000.00 less if I were to make only $10,000.00. However I don’t have to worry about that because as you can see from the screen shots I make $0.00 a month.

If I was trying to suck you into a sales funnel to capture your email address so I could mail you special offers that were crap, I bet people would be all over it. People tend to be suckers for fancy sales pages/landing pages where they offer a free course that is crap for seven days where all you have to do is give them your email address and name.

This puts you on their mailing list and an auto-responder sends out pre-made emails to you on a preset interval like once a day for x number of days, or once a week for x numbers of weeks, and so on. This methods works not only does it give them the name and email of a potential client that they can then promote their affiliate offers to or custom products/services to it gives them a list that once it gets large enough can be worth a lot of money.

They can then keep using the list to mail you new programs they come out with that are usually crap or sell the list for a few hundred or thousand dollars a few thousand people and make a ton of money. Congrats you just made these people millions of dollars and can’t even spend a few dollars on small time affiliates like myself.

It’s cool, I really don’t mind if people don’t buy from me. I’ll just keep doing what I do and if I am a little to honest to want to stoop to low-ball tactics then I guess I may never profit. People seem to like those who lie, cheat, and steel more anyway. I’m sorry I can’t be that dishonest and lie to you just to make a sale, if that’s what you are looking for you are on the wrong site.

You see the products I pick are ones that I have tried, or products that I would use myself. I don’t just pick random stuff to promote, that’s why there’s not hundreds of thousands of products listed on this site. I do plan on promoting thousands of products but that may take quite some time because I hand pick the ones I list.

Most of these course work, hell almost every program offered works to some degree, however your results may never be as much or even close to those that were in test groups. It’s not because you’re doing it wrong, it’s just that it’s been done too much and no longer as profitable. It also depends on how much effort you put into it.

I can tell you this, that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Like the ones that tell you that with just a few clicks of their special software you will make $10,000.00 a day. What a load of crap the only ones making 10k a day are the ones who made the software, you the user would be lucky to make $10 a day. I prefer the ones that teach you something, what to promote, where to promote it, how to do something, etc.

If you need a place to start check out Amazons Associates program, ClickBankSponsored Tweets, and the thousands of other affiliate networks around on the internet. Two of those links are affiliate links, I didn’t feel like digging through Amazon until I found the affiliate link to the associates program.

Facebook Twitter YouTube The Ultimate Social Media Trilogy

What do you get when you combine Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube? One hell of a social media marketing tool that you can use to promote your website, affiliate offers, your own products, etc. If you want people to know about what you can offer them, or have for them to buy you need to put it out there where the most people hang out and millions of people each day use Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Let say you want to promote “brand-x traffic booster” lets say it’s a ClickBank item, well first off if you’ve tried it all the better now you can give an honest review. You can make a short video about the product, you can even use free software to do this. Screencast-O-Matic, Free Screencast, and Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), all can do a good job of this for you. Or you can fork out some cash and grab one of the paid one, you can find them on Google like Camtasia by TechSmith you can get a trial for free or buy it for $199. In a few days I hope to be approved for the affiliate network they use and a few others so I can bring you the best software and reviews I can and hopefully get paid a little something, got to eat right.

Anyway make your review video and even write up a good little review article for your blog if you have one. Next one your get your video edited upload that bad boy to YouTube. You’ll then want to write a good description about what the video is about, a good title, and be sure you have your affiliate link and the link to your own site in the description, this may get you some more traffic and may ever result in a sale or two, more if you are lucky.

Next you’ll want to share that video on Facebook, Twitter, and even Google+. You’ll want the posts public so more people will see it. Ask your friends to help you out by liking your video on Facebook and Retweeting it, or +1ing it. The more social signals you get on your video the more traffic you should be getting on YouTube, and your own site.

Now make another video for another product, and then another and another. Try to make about seven reviews a week for the next couple weeks, with any luck in a few weeks you may start seeing some sales. If people like you and your work they may be willing to spend their money to help you out, and if your a jobless bum like me you’ll need all the help you can get, unless I get accepted to a truck-driving school.

Anyway if you want to lean more about meshing these social giants together to produce great results then check out the book below, it’s on Amazon. I know that I won’t make but a few cents if you buy it but hey you need cents to make dollars. Best of luck to you in whatever path you take.


Searched the Internet for Secrets to Making Money With WordPress

In my search to find ways to the secrets of making money with WordPress I cam across a vast number of sites, more than I would ever care to read, there were 14,100,000 different listings so me being the good little researcher I am (cough) started at the top and the article was very well put together. I will list the sites I visited on down the page a little, however the first article was by Victor Pride titled The No Bullshit Guide to Making Money Online, written in 2011 and still at #1 on Google, that has to say something, while it didn’t cover WordPress it did cover making money online in general.

The article is great and quite long, the site Bold & Determined where the article is hosted may be a little rough and brash for some. It does have some good articles and some that are not so good well in my personal opinion that is, the author has some loyal readers that will fire back at those that express different ideas but it’s all cool that’s the great thing about the internet, you can take bits of information that works for you and use it, and you can leave the rest behind. Also if you don’t like or agree with something no bigger no one is making you read every last word. This site is mostly geared towards men, the empowerment of men, men’s health and success. There was an article about finding the right wife that I didn’t agree with but it did have some good points here and there, so most women won’t care for it very much.

Moving on I then traveled down the page and picked BforBlogging’s article on Top 10 Secrets to Writing Money Making Blog Posts which contains some good useful information for what I am trying to achieve here at the blog. It talks about post structure, SEO Friendly content, meaningful content even if its short, internal linking, and more.

My next stop was an article titled How do I Start a Blog and Make Money over at Tips and Tricks HQ. The article lays out step by step what you need to do to create a blog and then making money from it, there are no short cuts and it takes work and time but if you follow the steps. I personally think the site contains some great information and is well put together and even has an affiliate program that I’ll have to check into later, but the design needs some changes the white of the navigation just does not work very well.

The next place I landed looked like utter crap, the information was good, but not for me at this point in my life not until I start pulling in some traffic on this blog about 1000 visitors a month would be great. Anyway the article is titled $10,000 Per Day – The Secret To Making Big Money Online by John Chow, it’s rather short but talks mainly about selling higher ticket items and making more than you would selling $10 items or using Google AdSense, I can see the logic, but getting that one high ticket sale would be nightmare for me, I have a hard enough time giving away free information. For someone who makes so much money he sure skipped when it came to site design, but the money is in the funnels. Signup for the free eBook and it’ll take you to a click funnels page where they’ll collect your email address so they can send you other offers after all there is money in the list and funnels allow you to try to sell other products or different packages of the same product, anyway next.

I fell way on down the page and landed on my face at WPBlogging360.com on an article title Top 10 Ways to Make Money Online (Easily) which seems to be a good article, has good site design, and so on. While the article was good and the information solid the author got very lazy with the links they only linked to a couple of sites and didn’t bother linking to the rest but that’s just my opinion but it’s not a big deal just copy and paste the sites that interest you into Google or whatever search engine you use and it’ll do the rest.

I then went over and paid a visit to Make Money With Your WordPress Blog, it’s a website/blog that while it does contain some good information is in reality a sales page for an book on Amazon by the same name, so I’m sure that while the site has some good information it just does not give you the answers that are in the eBook. Most of the content has to do with affiliate marketing, which is the method I use, you’ll find very few products that I made my self here, if any because they are works in progress.

So after that pit stop I stumbled into a site called How to Make Honest Money Online and landed on a review of something called $7 Dollar Secrets. Yeah that page was all about an older program that may not work for everyone, go figure just like all the rest, but it was fairly well written and only contained a few mistakes. However the site itself contain some good information and has a few reviews for some affiliate products that can give you a heads-up before you spend your hard-earned money on them.

I then skipped over about four pages and found myself staring at Hellbound Blogger’s article about 10+ Interesting Ways How Porn Websites Make Money and couldn’t help but laugh, just glad I wasn’t drinking a glass of milk. I admit I’ve looked at porn sites in the past and never gave a second thought to all the different ways they make money, I even had a porn site at one time, only had a few sales, but that was my fault for not promoting it enough, heck I didn’t promote it at all. Anyway there are some really good pointers in this article if you want to start your own porn site or not.

Next I got tired of all the reading and a few sites were flagged in Microsoft Edge, so I took a brief break to rest my eyes and go get a drink, a came back and went over to an article called How To Make 6 Figures in a Year With No SEO hosted at https://feinternational.com/ which clam to be Professional Website Brokers.

Sense I like to travel and dream of broadening my travel experience I clicked on How To Start A Travel Blog: A Step By Step Guide over at Expert Vagabond. This site didn’t really go into great detail about making money online but in starting a travel site, you could make a good bit of money with the right promotions and right packages. You could offer to arrange travel for people for a slightly higher fee than it would cost them to do it themselves or have a shop on your site the sells travel related products. The earning potential could be great over time, can’t compete with the larger travel sites, you don’t have to think locally or regionally, maybe just your own state but those are my ideas you can’t use them lol.

Well that’s about it, the deeper I went the less and less stuff I found that was even remotely related to my keywords, oh well I’ll do another search later and see where that leads me. Hopefully not down a dark alley way with creepy perverts and crooked folks. Anyway enjoy and let me know what your personal favorite site about making money online using WordPress and I will review it and may even add it to the list.

Easy Way To Display Amazon Affiliate Products Horizontally

So you like to add Amazon products in your WordPress blog posts but they keep running down your page vertically. Well you can fix this rather easily by inclosing the Amazon code in a table, yep a simple HTML table will do the trick, the only problem is the whitespace below it but that is in the Amazon code you could remove that too but it takes some playing around with the div tags and if your listing a few products then you may want to just leave that be it’ll save you some time.

Anyway here is the simple HTML tables that I use, nothing fancy but they do the trick. You can get fancy and change the border size or add color to the cells, or even a title bar like (books) (movies), you get the idea. I used the HTML Encoder to encode and display the code because WordPress won’t let you display raw code it want to interpret it, which is fine but the need to make a method to display raw code without jumping through hoops.

<table border=”0″>

It’ rather simple, all you do is paste it in Notepad or whatever your favorite pure text editor is, hop over to Amazon grab the code for the item you want to display and then paste it in between the td tags. You can also add another row by adding another set of tr tags with the td tags below the closing tr tag. Confused I don’t blame you.

You’ll need an associates account to get the code and profit from it. Easy enough to get, plenty of information on how to set that up online. That about covers it but if you still need a little help you can follow along with the short video. Uh video will come later, I will have to remake it, had too many interruptions AC kicking off and on, phone ringing, people coming in and talking without knocking etc. Or I just may do a slide show using screen shots that would cut out the background noise. Oh well screen shots will have to do.

Oh good grief come on why can’t I upload the rest of my images without a freaking error lol. Just my luck not even a cloud in the sky to blame the crappy Internet on just Dish Network or WildBlue whoever powers this crappy Internet need a kick in the rear. Guess I will just have to go to McDonalds to steel their Wi-Fi lol.


How To Get Easy Content For Your Blogs

So you have this new blog and your sitting there scratching your head trying to think of what to blog about, you get an idea for a topic but it’ll take you hours to research it all. What to do? Well there is a method called content curation, simply put it is the collection of information on any given subject organized into a way that makes sense along with some of your own thoughts on the subject.

This is alright and chances are it’ll be original content for your blog you just need to make sure you give credit where credit is due. So how long is all of this going to take? Hours my friend hours spent search Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, Wikis, YouTube, and a dozen other sources. Is there a faster way to get this done so I can get content on my site faster? Yes there are quite a few programs out there that can search many sources for information on any subject, some are free and others are paid.

Sense I’m in this to attempt to turn a little profit, I’ll recommend a paid one, it’ll get the job done fairly quickly like a couple minutes. Of course you’ll still have to put the information into a post in a why that makes sense and add in some of your own content, you don’t have to add much, Sometimes all you need to add is a short introduction and maybe a description of different parts, or maybe a heading here and there to break things up a bit. Toss in some original hand drawings to really make it unique.

So what is this piece of software that I recommend? CurationSoft 3.0! Yeah I’ll give you the name and yes you can just search it and buy it yourself but that won’t change the price any. You could also click my link and buy it and its still not going to change the price. Just be careful of the up sales, they can get rather expensive. I’m not sure but they may offer some down-sales if you don’t accept the first offer, many affiliate do this so they still make some extra money off of the sale.

Personally it does not matter to me if you buy all their extras, its not like I’m going to get much if any of the up sales. Anyway below in a good bit of information about CurationSoft 3.0 along with the link to the website and yes it’s a ClickBank affiliate link. Matter of fact below here is the whole post I did about it awhile back, not much has changed just the focus of this site.

Do you need great content for you blogs, social networks, and such? Well you could spend hours and hours writing each and every post or you could use a content curation software to poll relevent information from a number of different sources to creat masterful content that many may deem ready to post.
While you can post the content created via CurationSoft 3.0 I would suggest you spend another five or ten minutes reading over it and make some personal changes that would make it even more different than any other article posted. While CurationSoft 3.0 cites its sources and put the required copyright information in its genrated posts you can still add some of your own thoughts within the article.
