Is Blogging Worth Trying?

I don’t want to bug you with so many sentences and word, I would try to keep it short and simple as much as possible. This could be a very lengthy topic to discuss. 

I would rather say that this is a rhetorical question which answer cannot be predetermined as to whether it is yes or no.  But all I can say is that, it all depends on the time, effort and money you are willing to offer or sacrifice into it. 
Thank God for yet another day with great breath and a wonderful life filled with blessed people like you reading this article. JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth has made all things possible only to those that believe. So you better believe today.... 

People who are willing to make blogging worth it, spend their time, money and effort on their blogs hours after hours because that is way your blogging is going to make money for you in the near future.  One needs money to promote his blog and increase his or her blog’s search engine optimization (SEO) so the blog would be highly ranked. This is an assurance of popularity for your blog. 



With advertising such as banner placement and writing of review or sponsored post on one’s blog, one is assured of great earnings from his or her blog.  Depending on how popular and how much traffic your blogs receives, you might be closely earning up to $4,000 per month for just advertising product on your blog. Irrespective of where you place them. Just that your advertisers would want to get from you an assurance that you blog would be willing to drive them much sales as they expect. At this juncture, do you still think that blogging is worth it? May be yes or no!


Nevertheless, the time, effort and money one would spend on his blog is just not a joke to play with.  You should consider providing your blog with quality original content, you should be able to build a social media network community for your blog, you should be able to market your blog and take it to the next level,  you should be able to rank your blog in all manner of search engines and so on. With the success of this comes a very hard work and sleepless night. 

One of the UK best blogger Matthew Woodward, in ones of his post shows the expenses he made on his blog and the income he received after his hard work and son on. According to the post he published which reveals his expenses and earnings in 12 months. See it below.



Earnings and Expenses TotalOver all income 74,922.27Expenses – $1,588.18

Now you see how it pays to devote your resources into blogging. So many people who can see the future of their blogging business would do anything to shoot it up to that level. Example of such people is Matthew W. I have heard stories of people, who have dropped their current job to take up blogging as a full time business.  And because of the resources they invested into blogging they were able to make it to the top. I am not saying do the same, am just giving the seriousness in blogging and it benefits. You can offer your own in your own very way and still make it blogging.




How Do I Start Blogging?

Like I said from the beginning, I would make it short and concise.  And I wouldn't want to bug you with so many points that you might find hard considering.


Now the best way to evaluate and see how to start your blog is to know what you have fun doing, your favorite niche I mean. I niche is basically a category of blog you want to blog about. May be sports, technology, Christian messages, helping other bloggers, fashion, books, movies, games, reviewing apps and games of smartphones, social, education, business and career, or even politics. There are so many niche to choose from and all depends on your personality. What you enjoying reading or writing.

After you have chosen that, then the next thing to do is to choose a blog platform to blog with may be Blogger.com or Wordpress.com, There are some post or articles out there that would give you the benefits of these two platform, just search for blogger VS. WordPress. Read them and make your choice but I suggest as a new blogger, is to go for blogger.com because its blogging platform is easy to handle and learn.

And if it is available lucky you, A list of other domain options like .com, .net, .org and many more would be suggested with different price log. Select the one that best suits you you money level and proceed to the next step  !! 





#2
The cart continues to a next stage where you have three options to choose from.. Let me explain them to you. Please don't select any of them if you only want to buy a domain.. If you have ticked one already, you can untick it by clicking on it again.

Step 1 : This option seeks to protect your personal information from appearing on the internet. informations such as the Registrars name, email, and phone number for a fee of $7.99 per domain. you can choose to select no if you don't have the money.. 


Step 2. ask you whether you want the domain for a website plus a hosting or just hosting, Don't click on any of them, leave it blank. if you have check any of them you can uncheck it by clicking on it again!!!

Step 3 : seeks to add a custom email Address to your website domain that would look like this info@yourdomain.com
for a fee of $4.99 per month... If you don't need it just select "No thanks"

#3
Remove all the product that you don't need but has be added, it only adds to the figure of the domain.. you see the spot  circled with a red outline polygon, you can remove the any product that you don't need by clicking on the remove there !!..

And you are done...


Now let's move on to How to set it up with blogger, just follow the step correctly and your blog would be running in no time with you top domain name.





How To Set up A Blogger Custom Domain With Godaddy Purchased Domain.


STEP 1   Lets believe you have a blogger account and you have bought a domain from Godaddy already. That makes things simple and short for us. Please head over to your blogger settings menu and try to add a custom domain you just bought from Godaddy. Let’s say www.bloggingengage.com  in the box that would open after clicking on Add a third party domain.





Step 2:  If you do the previous step successfully, you would get an error text that looks like the one below. It just simply requires you to do certain setting to your Godaddy DNS settings.




Look just closely to the bottom of the whole coloured box, you would find a link that ask you to download “DNS settings file”. Click and download the file. Keep the file in a directory where you can easily access it when needed.

Step 3: Now, you are half done with the Google blogger. Head on to your Godaddy account and launch the domain you wish to configure with your blogger blog.



Step 4: If you have arrived here successfully then click on the "DNS Zone File" tab. And click on the Use classic DNS Manager





Step 5: We are going to delete the default record settings of your domain, locate them using the image below. On the A record column (first column), we need to delete the “@ that points to their host IP.

Secondly, go to the second column with CNAME (Alias). Locate the “www points to @” and delete it. After you delete you might want to save the progress, but not important now.




Step 6: Press the "Save Zone File" button if you want to save your progress at this point. Press Ok to any window that pops up to confirm.



Step 7: If we have gotten here, wow! You have done a great job. Now let’s try to add our own new records from our blogger to the settings. Click on the Import/Export button and select "Import".  Remember the file we saved from the beginning, now is time to locate it.

 



Click on the "Choose File" and find the file we have saved from the beginning and then tick the "I understand." checkbox and press the Ok button to continue….. Press ok to any other window that pops up again.






Step 8: If you have successfully done everything as described, you should be able to see your new records added to GoDaddy DNS settings. For both the “A" and two CNAME records…… Great work, I must commend you…….

 



Step 9: Now, it seems to me that we are done with Godaddy, let’s move to our blogger. I suppose you didn’t close the blogger tab, if you have, don’t worry just open a new one and still go to the settings menu of the particular blog you want to apply a top domain to. Type your domain name in the empty box starting with www. And save it.



Step 10: This is the final work or step to be done and you can have your blog to be online with your new top paid domain. After you have saved your progress, click on edit as shown in the image. And tick on the redirect checkbox and save your progress.





It can take up to 48h for DNS settings to be properly propagated. So don’t worry. You can be lucky like me and it would start running in minutes.That is all, you are done view your blog with a new domain.

Thanks for staying with me through all the tutorial. Happy blogging and enjoy your new domain…. If you still have problem let me now…………,,,,,




Inspiration for Your Next Blog Post !


On a recent episode of the +Nerdist podcast, actor/musician Jared Leto talked about walking away from acting after the success of hit TV show “My So Called Life.” He mentioned that he wanted to go out and experience the world, to “have something to say.”

The is no greater testimony that to stand among the living and as such give Glory to whom Glory is due. In Christ is life and the life is the light of men.......John 1:4

I thought this was rather poignant, and a point many never consider. I think everyone could take a lesson from Jared, no matter what industry you work in. In Press release, and particularly blogging, though, I think its extra important, and a lesson many writers should pay attention to.



# Experiences


Getting actual, real life experience cannot be understated. Its one thing to talk about things that happen in the world and yet another to actually experience them and recount them first-hand. It gives you a whole new perspective on even the simplest of matters.

Don't forget to  subscribe with us and get updates directly into your email inbox 

Let’s say your business is in table making. Woodworking conferences and meet-ups are common, and members love to get together to talk about the craft and discuss different methods and updates to technology. On the other hand, there are others who wish to stay closed off to the rest of the industry.


Which is fine, of course, if you want to stay on the same path you’re on. But blogging is all about growth and making a better world for your business. Even if you don’t end up using any of these methods you learn at the conference, just meeting new people and experiencing the event will be worth talking about. Others in the woodworking/furniture or any kind of industry would love to read about your experience.


Furthermore, you’re likely to encounter others at this conference you can talk with further online. They may also have blogs and such where you can connect and keep the conversation going and promote each other’s campaigns.

# Expert in the Field


One of the grandest goals you can have for your PR campaign is that you (and your company) become an expert in the field or industry. If you write enough about woodworking and making tables, providing readers with fresh, unique, relatable content for a long enough time, you’ll eventually be seen as the go-to person. Readers will know to expect good stuff every time they open your blog page.

But providing this unique perspective on the industry and life in general doesn't come out of nowhere. No matter how introverted you are, you've got to get out there in the world. Even if it’s only long enough to meet some new people and have just one new thing to say, it will be worth your time.


You never know: after you do this enough and establish yourself as an expert, you may be able to do this full time. You could travel around the country heading up workshops and panels about making tables and how you arrived at your unique perspective on the industry as a whole. Meanwhile your company reaps all the benefits as they associate your expertise with the business. Or you could use it all to make better tables, whichever.

Do you think it’s vital for bloggers to get out in the world more?

Basic Tips to Make Your Blog Popular



#1 Your Blog Design should be Unique.

Someone would ask, what is the relationship between popularity and design? The answer is simple. In life people recognize you for your uniqueness and it makes no difference with your blog.  Get a nice, unique template for your blog, you can buy or even contract a developer to design a unique template for you. Your design is your trade mark.

You should probably get a well-designed logo for your blog as it is the only identity factor of a blog from the others. It gives your blog a whole lot range of uniqueness and professionalism. It is also consider as a trade mark more than anything else.



#2 Uniqueness of content and information!

Readers always get attracted to unique content. The uniqueness of content is the key to blogging success. It is always good to consider how you carry out your information, the format it is arranged and the way it is passed. More often than not, readers get excited over the originality of content than the same information everywhere.

Sometimes how you compose your post also adds up to the uniqueness of your content......


#3 Regular updates and involvement 

The regularity of a blog updates shows the seriousness of the blogger. And it attracts readers on your blog knowing very well that there is a pattern of periodic updates. They stick around to know your next move and information you would provide. It makes your blog very familiar and popular.

Get involved in any discussion in your comment forum and lighten up conversions. Try as much as possible to reply any comments that comes in. It creates trust between you are your readers, visitors and friends.



#4 Be Creative with Your Blogging.

As a blogger I have recently noticed that is very good to show your creativity to your readers, share with them your writing creativity, humour, stories and many more. It makes them always feel comfortable around you and trust you in certain things and aspects. Creative blogs attract readers and visitors…



#5. Get involved with the right Search engine optimization (SEO)

Always with the right SEO procedures and tips you can easily gain a lot of credibility from search engines. The principle of SEO is simple but we have decided to make it a big deal for ourselves and at the end we suffer for it... Don’t fall a victim, follow the right steps.

To do a right SEO always make sure that you suggest good and healthy title for your post, articles. It interest readers to read a catchy headlines or titles. Your title should involve better keywords.

Remember it is always recommended that your post should contain more than 500 word count. And always remember to include important keywords in your post. Always do a trending keyword research probably before you publish your next blog post.



#6. Advertise Your Blog.

This part is consider expensive but it would eventually give you the exact result you want. You can advertise using Google Adwords or other advertising companies out there. But I would suggest that before you think of advertising your blog should be worth sticking around with. I guess visitors that arrive to your blog from the advert would be disappointed if what the advert says is not what they are seeing.

You can also consider advertising on others top blogs that offer advertising spaces on their blogs. Or probably on a friends blog.



#7. Join the social media wagon.

The social media is another great way of creating and getting a massive online exposure of your blog or business. Get your blog or business a page on the top social media networks like Facebook, twitters and Pinterest and give your readers the chance to like and follow your pages.

Create or join major groups and share your most recent or old articles with them for awareness, it increases your chance of getting popular.

Remember that it is not a day journey to get popular or probably be a man of the game, it takes time, devotion and dedication to get to that pick. So exercise patient if you are currently not seeing results after your recent moves.




“I'm wondering what other people think about this information. Tell me about your experience in the comments below. lets have a conversion”



Accessibility to free online technology and an increase in people’s IT skills are making it easy for anyone to create their own space on the internet. Blogs can be a fantastic hobby, and a way of making your own online diary and to share your experiences and opinions with others. They can also be a good way to make money. 

Don't let yesterday failures bankrupt your tomorrow's effort and happiness

All blogs have the potential to make money. The way you make money will depend on your niche topic, so you need to find the best method for you. These are just some of the ways you can use a blog to increase your income. 


Using Your Blog To Make Money Online



#1. By selling products

Your blog may not make you money in itself but can be a brilliant marketing tool by helping you to reach your target market for products you sell. If you have your own range of products, using your blog is a relatively cheap way of creating interest in your products, and driving traffic to your e-commerce site or eBay store. You don’t even have to handle any of the sales yourself – you could outsource everything to a fulfilment company. Alternatively, you could develop a blog based on your interests, find your audience, and then source relevant products to sell at a profit.

#2. By selling advertising space

A blog with a reasonable level of traffic can charge companies for display adverts on the home page, or within targeted content. The rate you can charge depends on your traffic levels, your Page Rank and, ultimately, what a company is prepared to pay for access to your specific audience. Sometimes companies will find you and approach you with an offer for space, and sometimes you will need to do your own selling – usually by email or contact on social media. You should put together a blog media pack so that you can quickly respond to any enquiries, and keep it updated as your blog grows. 



Don't forget to  share this on your favourite social media network..Thank you



#3. By writing sponsored content

Increasingly common is the practice of being asked to write and publish content on behalf of a commercial company, either for product awareness, or for keyword links which help the company’s ranking on search engines. This content can be provided by the company, or you may be asked to write it yourself. This is perfectly legal providing you are transparent with your audience about the fact you have received payment to promote something, and you should read the legal guidelines on disclosing a paid-for blog post to your audience. You need to be aware that search engines can impose penalties on sites found to be selling links, but this is not a legal issue, and you should consider the risk to your site’s ranking and reputation when publishing paid-for content.




#4. By running affiliate advertising

By joining an #affiliate network, you can pick and choose ready-made adverts to suit your site. You can choose from a wide range of advertising methods from flash banner adverts to simple text links for a plethora of companies and products to suit your niche. You sign up to an affiliate programme for a specific company, display one of their graphics on your site, or put a link in your content, and you get paid commission on any sales which are generated through referrals from your blog.


You can even place affiliate adverts in your marketing emails and in your social media feeds, subject to the terms of each programme. While affiliate advertising may not make you big bucks, it can be a good passive income for some niches, with little effort or long-term commitment on your part. 


        Which income stream best suits your blog could be trial and error, and putting the feelers out to see who’s interested in your blog and why. In reality, it is likely that you will need a combination of different methods to start making a reasonable amount of money. However, it is almost certain that the best way of making your blog a viable commercial space is to create good content that grows and engages an audience that is interested in your blogging niche, and the related products and services that can be promoted to them.

I would  love to hear what you think about this information. Let me know in the comments. Lets Discuss !!



Using Header Tags to Improve Search Engine Ranking (SEO)


In this post we are going to learn how we can use header tags to improve search engine rankings. . Before we proceed we are going to look at what a header is or heading means.  A heading is a piece of information that explains a format of context in one sentence of phrase. Usually, a heading is always a phrase but carries information about a piece of work. And the piece of work or context then justifies the headings.

Thank GOD for such a wonderful day as this.. Everyday has been blessed by GOD but you are the final determinant of the fulfilment of the blessing.............

Header tags are pieces of HTML that makes headings or words stand out in a post, page or article. To better understand how the heard tag works, let me give an instance that everybody applies when reading a piece of article or newspaper. Imagine you are reading a newspaper, there are bold title with specific font size may be underlined and given a different colour. These features makes the title or that particular phrase stand out and makes it more important and catchy. And consequently it catches your attention to read it. 


Similar to that, the header tags places the same role, it makes it possible to your readers to know what the post, article or page is all about. It also make it possible for search engine to see how important the page is. When used together with page title, Meta description and important keyword that is targeted to your content, it helps search engines improve your ranking for specific phrases and keyword.


How Search Engines Read Headings
