A Great Idea For a Blogging Web Site is No Longer Enough

Whether you
are starting up a new web site aimed at bloggers or
whether you are looking to make your existing blogging
site more distinctive, the key to building and
maintaining a site that will capture the interest and
attention of the blogging community is finding your
niche. If you can fill a unique need in a way that no
other web site does, you'll be able to build a lasting
readership among web surfers. Once you have
discovered a niche, you will still have a lot to do, but
finding your place in the blogosphere is the place to

Every great blogging web site starts with a great idea,
and you can't build a successful site that will last
without one. There are many great sites aimed at
today's bloggers, and competition for the attention of
this growing demographic is fierce. To make your
blogging web site stand out from the pack, you will
need to offer something that no other site is currently
offering, or you will need to do the same thing that an
already popular site does but in a more impressive or
valuable way.

One way to discover an ideal model for your blogging
web site is to look at the sites that have successfully
captured a blogging audience already to determine if
you can appropriate some of their strategies to help
realize your vision. Of course, you will also need to add
a unique flair to your project in order to stand apart
from your competition. Many people agree that the web
sites that do the best in today's market are the sites that
have the most personality. The fiercely individual
surfers who are bloggers are a demographic that
responds especially strongly to personality, so consider
how you can give your site a unique and attractive
feeling by lending your own voice and sensibility to
your site's design and content.

Once you have a great idea for your site, have
pinpointed a special niche that you are well equipped to
fill, and have infused the site with personality, the next
step is figuring out how to get the word out to bloggers.
In the long run, a great idea just isn't enough to propel
your blogging web site to success. You will need to
draft a smart and realistic marketing plan in order to
draw readers to your site. Once you hook a blogger,
your great content will keep them coming back, but it is
vital to get that first glance or your site won't have a
chance to shine.

How To Start Your Own Blog

These days, if you have something to say and want to share it with others, there's an easy way to do it: Start a blog. If you thought only the young or computer-savvy create blogs, think again. Just about anyone can start a blog-and people of all ages are doing so.

What is a blog? A blog, short for Web log, is a Web page where you write about things that are important to you. Many people use blogs as online journals. Some bloggers write about their hobbies. Others use blogs to share their opinions on politics and serious issues, often adding their own comments to news stories.

To start your own blog, just follow these three simple steps.

1. Select a Topic and Blog Hosting Site-The first step is deciding what you want to write about. Next, find a blog hosting site. Many portals, such as Google, Yahoo and MSN, offer free hosting. Also, there are specialized blogging sites focusing on specific topics, such as family and business. Do a search to find a site that best fits your topic. Once you've selected a site, you'll fill in some basic information about yourself and your blog topic. Now you're ready to start writing and posting to your very own blog.

2. Add Video to Your Blog-The next step is to add a video to your blog. This is called a vlog, short for video blog. To create one, you can use software such as Vlog It!, from Serious Magic. The software lets you create videos that look like a TV news show. First, connect a Webcam or camcorder to your computer. Next, import pictures or video from your computer, digital camera, camcorder or cell phone. Finally, read your script from the teleprompter included with the software. Because the Webcam or camcorder is positioned directly above your monitor, it will look as if you're staring into the camera.

The program offers special effects and graphics similar to those used on television, so your production looks professional. The technology also has a wizard feature that makes the entire process relatively simple. To learn more, visit www.VlogIt.com.

3. Share Your Blog-Decide if you just want your friends and family to see your blog or vlog, or if you want more people to view it. If you want it to be available to the general public, register with search engines-such as www.technorati.com-that specialize in tracking the blogging universe.

Now that you know the basics, it's time to get creative and join the blogosphere.

Create a vlog and transform your blog into a TV news show.

Surreal Blog Directory

Copyright 2006 Darren Dunner

Most of us know what a blog directory is. Most of us have some knowledge that everyone who has an online presence needs an online blog. Most of us do not realize that blogging in the wrong way is a waste of your time!

Today you can search and find blogs everywhere on the net, it seems when you search the major directories that blogs show up in top positions. Is your blog appearing in these places? If not, then maybe you don`t know something that these other bloggers do know.

Before getting into more information on Blog Directories it is important to know that your blog needs to be set up properly. Here are a few things to know:

Install your blog directly on your site Make sure you are using full search engine friendly urls with these blogs Do not copy other blogs and post them on your blog as this is duplicate content and will hurt you Add at least 1 post a week if not more If you are unsure about these mentioned above contact us for assistance.

The power of blog directories are incredible! These blog directories are supported by a large community of search engine experts who know that the only value in these is getting traffic. To test out these directories we did an experimesnt with I Loan Resource this blog is about 1 month old and is installed directly on a domain. Notice the page rank is pr4 and if you go to the main site www.iloanresource.com the page rank is lower there. Why is this? It is due to listing the blog on several high ranking directories!

Don`t waste time on this anymore, get your blog, get listed on directories and increase your page rank.

Blogging Tips that can help

· Key word relevant content: Meaning, stay focused on 1 subject and about 2 - 4 related keywords or phrases. Decide ahead of time what you will write about, do research to see if the topic has keywords that match and use those keywords.
· With those keywords or phrases spread them out so they appear within every 100 words or so.
· Add your URL in the first sentence & approx every 100 words using it about 3 times max. Don’t do more then this as it won’t help at that point
· Make sure after you have written your article to do a spell and grammar check.
· Install your blog on your own URL. You will find that your links from your blog going to other sources will count more if these are installed directly on your site
· Notify Blog Servers by pinging them.

Blog Host that Pays

If you're considering starting a personal blog using a free blog host, it is a good idea to do a bit of research as to where you will put up your "home". There are plenty of free blog hosts appearing these days because blogging has become incredibly popular! These are the things to consider when looking for a free blog host:


Does the blog host provide a wide range of templates? Is it easy to customise? Is there a guide for users about the templates?

It's refreshing to see blogs with a look that matches the blogger's personality. Find a blog host where you can easily personlise the look to make a lasting impression on viewers.


How easy does the blog host make it for users to start blogging? Do you have to read up on a set of long instructions before you can start?

Personal blogging should be fun and easy so if the blog host makes it complicated by being too cluttered or not providing enough info to get you started, it can be a bit of a turn off. You should be able to login and immediately be able to start posting!


How long before they reply to your email or support ticket? Do they even have a contact available? Do they have a FAQ section?

Different blog hosts have different approach how they tackle their users' concerns. Often, if the host is fairly new , they would or should go to more effort to help their customers to make them stay and keep using their service.


Are you looking for other bloggers to read, rate, review your blog? Do you want to make friends in the process of your journey through blogging? Are you interested to read what other people have to say in their blogs?

If you want to get your blog up and running and other bloggers checking out your site quickly, seek a blog host which is also a community to help you enjoy blogging even more!


A bonus to any blogger is getting paid to blog! A lot of blog hosts are adding more features to their service to attract more users.

One such host is Blog Charm, which pays its users a percentage of ad revenue they generate. Everytime a blog user gets a visitor, that user will get paid.

There are a lot of other free blog hosts out there so before deciding where to settle down, consider which features are important to you.

A Blog Farm, Why You Must Have One If You Want Huge Amounts Of Traffic

Someone wrote a comment on one of my articles at EzineArticles that I had written about the need to have a Wordpress blog. The point made was that whether you have a Wordpress blog or one of the other types of blogs, you still have to have people coming to your site.

Traffic is a part of the formula that you must have for the success of your Internet venture. Without people coming to your web site you will have no sales. Without sales, you have no Internet income.

In this article I will discuss how to get links to your Wordpress blog. If you just bought a new domain and put a Wordpress blog on that domain you will not get any traffic. That is, unless you have lots of links pointing to your blog. Remember, "no links equals no visitors". Let me say it another way, you have got to get links pointing to your site or you will not succeed!

These links should be high in terms of quality. If you get twenty five links from sites that are not authority sites it will not do you much good. It would be much wiser to get five links from web sites that have good page rank and are closely matched to the overall theme of your blog.

There are basically two ways to get these types of links. First, you can research the web and find high quality web sites that are theme related to your's and email them asking for links to your site. However, why would they want to link to your new page rank zero site?

You will get better results if you build a "Blog Farm". A blog farm has one distinct advantage, it is under your complete control. Instead of having to go asking for links, you will have the ability to post a link from your blog farm to your new Wordpress blog yourself. You will have the power to add a link to "any" new blog that you build in the future.

This is what happens, the link to your new Wordpress blog draws the search engine spiders which is mandatory in order for your blog to be indexed in the major search engines, which are Google, Yahoo, and MSN.

I will go over exactly "how" to build a blog farm in my next article.

Efficient Blogging

One of the challenges of blogging is to come up with good posts that interest readers and keep them coming back. Sometimes I do not feel like I have good original wisdom. It is presumptuous to think I can have top quality original material all the time.

A second challenge is the time to blog. I run a $1 Billion dollar company so when I decided to blog I knew I needed to figure out how to do it efficiently. My blog is mostly about efficiency and time management; these are topics I study.

These two challenges can be solved with a simple concept. Copy.

Ideas to use when copying are:

1 – attribution. Give the credit together with the link to the original author.

2 – look for something you can add to. Blogs can be synergistic. Take a concept or part of a blog post and expend on it and give your opinions, insights or views. In many cases, this can start a flow of ideas that are enriched from the original post.

3 – You can use either the whole post or most usually just part of it and point people to the original.

4 – I usually ask for permission which has never been denied. After all copying helps the original author and garners them some readership. And of course never copy copy written material without permission (and most blogs are not copy written).

5 – The simplest place to find material to use to copy is by blog surfing although this can mean a lot of irrelevant material to filter. One source of free articles sorted by topic is www.isnare.com.

6 – In many cases the person you copy from will point a link back to you since it is flattering to them. Charles Caleb Colton said “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” (one trick on quotes is to look them up on www.brainyquote.com). These links to you can increase your traffic.

In summary, copying saves time and increases the quality of material on your site. It can even lead to traffic since in many cases you will get link backs from the original site.

Extreme Blogging- Uses and Benefits

Blogs. Most people have either heard of them, read them, or have created their very own. Blogs or blogging has become very popular across the internet recently. Blogging is seen as something to do for fun, for a hobby, or in thinking and reflecting on the experiences you are writing about. This holds truth as some of the most common uses for blogging are personal, yet few realize the power of blogging. Though blogging is a way to interact and connect with others, there are many other uses for it.

Blogging is a great way to share knowledge and gain knowledge. For example, if someone has a question they can ask it on their blog where they can potentially get a lot of good answers and suggestions. Blogging is a good way to communicate with others across long distances. Blogging is, of course a great way of self-expression and self-promotion. It can be a safe haven for some who are otherwise more inhibited to be able to speak their mind and give their opinions on a certain subjects without having to show their face. Blogging can be used to track experiences, somewhat like a diary or journal, where there are daily entries that are dated. Blogging can also be utilized in storytelling. They are used in campaigning to get the word out about whatever the issue may be. Imagine how many people surf the web and can potentially see your issue. Great things can happen with such a huge audience involved.

Blogging can help in building community amongst different types of people. Blogging is also a great way to meet business partners. Some of the up and coming uses include opportunities in corporations and education, entertainment, health care, and government.

What better way to get people to your site for free. Blogs are practical everyday tools, like email. The blogging boom is on and it’s wise to get on board while it gains popularity.

Grab attention – on the net (Blogs)

Exchange of information on the internet has become a way of life today. And this is done through various modes by the technology savvy people. Everyone from small scale businessmen to large multi national companies are resorting to the world of web to let the world know of their existence and about their services. If one wants to know information about general market scenario or how to start a business, there are numerous websites and blogs that will provide the necessary data. There are some sites where the user has free access, and others where one needs to sign up, fill out a simple registration form to become members. This gives them the privilege of using the services of the blog or site and posting their own comments and experiences. Not all blogs will get noticed, because when a person is looking for some specific data he will key in those words and use the search engine. Unless the particular blog is about it or listed in top ten category the chances of it appearing is next to nil. For this purpose, some blogs and websites have the facility of paid memberships.

The forum must be used strictly for promoting and educating others about the business offerings and cannot be utilized to carry out online businesses or any illegal activities. If found to be such, then the company has the right to remove the concerned website and cancel their account. Since an agreement is entered to by the users and the company running the website, they need to abide by the laws stated and maintain proper conduct. The Bloggers are also expected to follow the same and not post any illegal or illicit information or use the board to send out common emails to all. Also, the data provided must be authentic and there should be no fraudulency involved. These are what make the site popular and will bring in more readers to the blog thereby increasing traffic. A textlink exchange option is also available incase the user wants to check out more information which could be on other blogs.

The main aim of the blog site is to promote healthy interaction between people from a similar background or those who are interested in sharing their two bits. This in turn should be of value to the readers and other users coming by to solve their queries on the subject.

Blogs-Why Do People Blog?

Blogs are becoming very popular. The rate at which the numbers are increasing is mind-boggling. Why is this happening? Why every body wants to create a blog? Who else will read that blog? If everyone is busy writing his/her blog why and when will they get time to search for other blogs and read them? Because of this over population and density, will blogging become another failure? Is it a fad, which will pass away? Let us examine?

Why do people blog? Most of the people write blogs to express themselves. They are sure that on their blog they will get what they want printed. If they write articles or columns for newspapers they may or may not get printed. Writing a blog gives the power to each of us to get printed immediately. I personally write my blog to express myself freely and feel good to see that what I wrote got printed immediately.

Another reason of writing in a blog and website is freedom of design, layout and structure. Blogging gives this freedom. It does not need navigation architecture designs of a website nor a structured menu. You write and get printed - as simple as that. This has a flip side also. In a website one can lay out the information in an easy to access and read format. You can lead your reader to a particular page in a website. You cannot do that on your blog.

Do blogs get read? How does one popularize one's blog? These are difficult questions to answer. For most of us, it is difficult to find time and submit our blog in the increasing number of directories. It is also difficult to make sure that our blog will get one of top rankings in a search. Only the search engines know the secret of that and others only speculate. If we try to read the articles written on this subject, not only the quantity but the difference of opinions will leave most of us tired, frustrated and undecided. One more issue- before you decide that you would want to popularize your blog, please think - whether you search for blogs and read them? A lot many of us are so busy writing our own blogs, that we find no time looking for others. Why should this not apply to our potential readers?

Whatever the pros and cons of blogging, one outcome is certain. Blogs give us the opportunity of writing what we want and get it printed.

Opening doors on the web (Blogs)

Writers' world over use various platforms to showcase their work and this can be done for two purposes, either for their own compilation or to tell the world that they have this talent thereby inviting projects. They can either adopt the age old system of maintaining a personal journal or diary where they write about their daily lives and also poetry or prose, depending on their interest. Another is making use of internet technology and creating a blog to put down their writings. Technology has advanced to a point where all one needs to do is create an account, a username and password and the doors to the wide world are open. Bloggers across the world also have the liberty to share and let their work be read by others. If there are a group of people who are into similar writing they might even get together and write on a single blog where they all have unlimited access. And one can also use the text link exchange option incase there are other blogs he frequents. Those who are interested in advertising their websites can avail a premium membership where they will be expected to pay a nominal amount every month or year.

In order to bring in more readers to the blog, one can either write about current hot topics or have a simple name which will come up while doing a search. There are a number of companies coming up with sites to promote business ventures, news about businesses, any seminars or events happening in the same arena. The traffic on such sites will be people from the industry or those looking for more information on how to enhance their business ventures. These are sites where you become a member, and can share, exchange and get information from. The content is monitored regularly and so are the kinds of people visiting the sites. Since they mean business, they do not encourage random visitors or offensive languages, and adult content. At the end of the day, there must be something that you gain by being part of the site.

A website is a place on the internet where people go to look for some information or learn about something that draws their interest. It may also churn out leads for prospective clients or new projects. Learning to go through the maze of the web is the way to survive.

Blog your way to profits

Everybody has picked up the trend of blogging. And blogging has picked up the money-making scheme.
If you have a blog and have not used that to make money online, then you are being left behind by the others who are already making some good profits from blogs.

How do they do that?

Selling advertising though blogs.

This is the most common ways of making blogs produce income. The process is simple. If your blog is one of those more famous and well-read, you can it to sell ad space all by yourself. But for those not so famous blogs, there are services that can be used to set up an ad program. The widely used one is Adsense.

Adsense lets you choose some ads that are somewhat related to what your site is about. You are then paid based on the number of the readers that clicked on the ads to check them out. Why people opt for Adsense is because they can get it for free.

Blogs as an affiliate program.

This is another one of those click-through opportunities. This allows blogs to serve as a medium between the affiliate sites and the readers. When a visitor became interested on something that you have promoted on your blogs, they can click on the link that you have provided that will lead directly to the affiliate site.

Once the customer has decided to buy or avail of what is offered, you will get a commission based on the sale made.

Soliciting though blogs.

As opposed to the first two mentioned, you are not offering something to your readers. On the contrary, you are counting on their kindness and seeking out their help. You can ask for contributions, whether money or goods, for a certain cause.

If your readers are taken or is moved by what you have written, there is a likely possibility that they will be more than willing to help you.

Blogging to market.

Blogs are a way of generating new businesses and getting potential customers. If you already have a product or service being offered, you can try and offer more and new things though blogs.

They can be your own or in reference to other site or business that you want to offer your readers.
With the publicity that blogs are getting nowadays, there is no doubt that it has become one of the most effective income generating tool online today.

This book is filled with step by step instructions and screenshots to make sure you have no trouble at all in setting up your blogs. Blogging to the Bank is written by Rob Benwell and even includes several videos showing you how to get your blog indexed by the search engines.

Why should you use blogs to make money online?
If you wanted to create 10 or 20 websites to make you money, you would need to register domain names, pay for webhosting, and know how to setup a website. But with blogs, your account is free and you can create lots of different blogs on any topic you wish for free! You do not need to know any web programming or even how to build a website to setup your blogs.
You can review a product and place an affiliate link to the site and earn you money. Another good reason is that you can include google adsense in your blog to create even more revenue.
I purchased Blogging to the Bank and have setup a few blogs already which are making me good money. One of the blogs I created is Guitar Lesson. Check it out at http://guitar--lesson.blogspot.com .This is a blog I created thanks to the information I learned in the Blogging to the Bank ebook.

Lets look into this a little further. If you open a new window and go to MSN and search for guitar lesson you will see there are over 2.5 million pages in the results. Now if you look at the first couple of pages of results, you will see my http://guitar--lesson.blogspot.com is ranked number 11 at this time, and I am just getting started. I was very excited to see my recently created blog dominate over 2.5 million other pages! Most web browsers do not look past the first couple of pages so this is where you want to be. I was able to get my blog ranked this well thanks again to the information in the Blogging to the Bank ebook.

Start building your money making blog empire now and you will see just how easy and profitable this is.

Using A Free Blogging Web Site

When you’re new to blogging, a free blogging web site is a good way to get started. Popular blogging web sites like Blogger and Eponym allow users to set up and host a blog for no cost at all. The fact that one of these sites can provide you with all of the tools that you need to get your blog up and running for free, encourages people to start a blog. As it’s free, you don’t have anything to lose. Many people that have never had any other kind of web presence before find themselves drawn to blogging, partly because it is so easy to find a way to blog for free.

Compared to starting your own blog from scratch, signing up with a free blogging web site will get you listed in search engines much easier. For example, Google, that runs the free blog hosting site Blogspot, crawls its pages very often to look for updates. As a result, if you have a Blogspot blog, you are almost guaranteed to be listed on Google's blog search engine. This way you can spend less time on promoting your blog, and you can gain a following with a minimum of marketing effort.

If your blog attracts many readers, you may want to think about moving your site. Many people think that a blog that is hosted by a free blogging web site has a kind of amateur flavor, not appropriate for a high-profile blog. Your own domain name can help you make your blog feel professional, and finding a webhost is not difficult or expensive. Once your blog starts to attract a large readership, you will probably be able to sell enough advertising space to be able to afford to buy your own domain and pay for a hosting package, and still have money left over. However, until you have a sizeable readership, there’s really no need to invest in these luxuries.

When you want to build a following before you spend any money on your blog, using a free blogging website is a good idea. Later, when you feel ready to take the next step and pay for your own domain, your readers will follow you to your new home.

Tag and Ping – Get Your Blogs Indexed Fast

What is a tag?

Tags are keywords that you use in your blog post. If you have a blog about dogs and you just write a post about dog food, your possible tags would be, say: dog, dogs, dog food, natural dog food, dog food recipe, and any other keywords that you used in your post.

How to use tags

Tags using your blog URLs:

<*a href="http://www.yourblog.com/[tagname]" rel="tag">[keyword]<*/a>
(remove asterisks in actual code)


<*a href=http://www.yourdogblog.com/dog+food rel=”tag”>dog food<*/a>

If you are using Wordpress blogs you can set tags using Wordpress search function:

<*a href=http://www.yourdogblog.com/blog/search/dog+food rel=”tag”>dog food<*/a>

Using Technorati Tags:

<*a href=http://www.technorati.com/tag/dog+food rel=”tag”>dog food<*/a>

Ping Technorati and IceRocket using following URLs to your ping list:


You can also ping Technorati and IceRocket manually by going to
www.technorati.com/ping/ and www.icerocket.com/c?p=ping

You can use www.pingooat.com to ping more than 60 ping services in the same time.

Technorati and IceRocket will index your blog posts according to tags that you used.

Some of Technorati tags pages are highly ranked in search engines. Search engines bots spider daily these pages and when it finds your tags it will index your blog posts too.

It is recommended to use this method for each post that you write. By adding tags to your post you can drive more targeted traffic to your blog.

By using this method you can index your blogs in 24-48 hours depending on the popularity of the tags you used.

Why is my blogs revenue so low?

Those who blog partly because they want to earn some extra money often ask the question:”Why is my revenue so low?” There are people who think that blogs simply can not generate much money. They are wrong! Blog can generate you the same amount of money if not more compared to any other website. Now im talking about PPC (Pay per click) sorces of revenue such as google adsense here.

The main problem I have noticed is that people tend to concentrate on wider markets. If you are running a personal diary kind of blog, the chances are that there are thousands of similar blogs around. The more competition you have, the harder it will be for you to make some cash. Instead try concentrating on smaller markets also known as niche markets. Not only it will be easier for you to develop the traffic, the CPC (Cost per click) should also be higher due to advertisers demand exceeding publishers supply.

Secondly you need to have a unique selling point. You need to give your readers something that nobody else does. This should really help you get returning visitors.

Finally it’s the ads themselves. You should channel your ads. This way you will be able to measure your ad block’s performance. One of the most important things is to experiment. Try different ad formats, colours and positioning. Run your setup for a few weeks, note the performance and try something different. Even if you think you have found the optimum ad setup keep on trying to improve it. In most cases you can always tweak something to make your ad performance better.

If you need help finding traffic for your blog, you can always submit your blog stories to the new personal blog news publishing system designed especially for the blogging community at the blog reporter

Indonesia as the next important market of internet business

Indonesia, with its growth on internet user, from 2 million in 2000 to 20 million in 2007, has recently grow an enormous amount of internet learner. By looking on this opportunities, in 2007, public speaker from Singapore, Malaysia, experts in tourism internet marketer, has recently visit Surabaya, and tell how Internet, with its opportunities could change people lives in the future. With vast amount of internet learner, for sure Indonesia need additional internet teacher. Especially, Indonesia need a patient teacher, as those who participate in internet classes in Surabaya, is the baby boomer generation, who usually are working as a businessman but they couldn’t even make an email, or we could say they are freshman.
If a lot of internet teacher among the world could maximize this potential market, there are possibilities to be made for both parties. Indonesia could gain knowledge about internet, which in the long run could help their economic condition, and the internet teacher could gain fortune from this niche market. Who could know that Indonesia with its approximately 250 millions people could change the world economic condition, if they run their businesses using internet.

Is Blogging Only For Money?

When one gives a quick look at the articles written on blogging, the common theme seems to be making money from blogging. The authors invariably talk about adsense and how we can make money from blogs. Is blogging only for making money? Did blogs begin with that idea? Are we losing the direction somewhere?

A blog gives an opportunity to everyone to express himself/herself on the Internet. We feel that we are sharing our deepest thoughts with other members of the world. Blogging is bringing the world nearer to each other like never before. In certain cases, a blog is a great therapy for venting out anger, frustration and other negative feelings, which can otherwise damage the psyche. Blogging was never started with the object of making money on the Internet.

Imagine the scenario when the majority of blogs will somehow try to collect content from different sources and hope that their ad gets clicked. Is that not wasting of quality time? Will such blogs contribute to the Internet at all? Who will visit such blogs? Everyone is busy building a blog that makes money, so why should he/she visit other blogs?

A blog can contribute to very lively discussion. A blog can be a great platform to meet people and talk. A blog is a great way to help budding talents show case their work to the world. Let us not make blogs only as a money making tool.

Intriguing Irrelevancies

The Internet links us all to a vast array of information-sometimes more than we expect, and to sources we didn’t know even existed. When searching for ‘online dictionary’ I pulled up a variety of ‘ordinary’ dictionaries, and such sites as etymology dictionary (www.etymonline.com). Adding ‘desert’ to my search query pulled up sites as diverse as:
Dream Dictionary (http://www.soulfuture.com/dream_dictionary/dream_dictionary_main.asp)
and The Astrodigital Online Dictionary of Meteoritics (http://www.astrodigital.org/astronomy/metdict.html)

Like a lot of people I sometimes get diverted from what I’m doing by this kind of interesting link appearing in front of me, of which is entirely irrelevant to what I’m doing. In this case, I looked up a definition of the word ‘desert’ which I subsequently found, but in the end didn’t end up using. My search had nothing to do with meteors called ‘fireballs’ which are much brighter than normal meteors because they are roughly the size of peas, some even the size of a grain of sand. I love discovering this kind of trivia. Thankfully, using the Internet makes researching much faster so I can spare a few minutes to connect with interesting web sites, and still learn what seeing a desert means in a dream, before getting back to connecting with the facts I need to know today. You know the next time I see a very bright meteor, I may remember it is a ‘fireball’, and why it is so bright.

Boost Your Online Revenue With a Niche Blog

You already know how valuable blogging can be to increasing the visibility and value of your online business. Having a niche blog is something that can be profitable and easy, or challenging and difficult depending on how you handle the day to day posting. Niche blogs are typically blogs related to one or more specific industries or fields, including hobbies, illnesses, and sports. The more niche, or in-depth a blog is, the harder it might be for people not involved in that niche to get into it. However, people who are interested in the topic will become very loyal because they will find the connection very valuable. It is for this reason that one must think about the best way to make the most out of niche blogs, and finding the right niche is a good start.

Have you ever realized just how many Google blogs are out there? Ten, twenty maybe? Well no there are actually over 100 Google blogs by my last count. When we refer to Google blogs, these include actual blogs started by Google to communicate news and updates about their various products and services. In addition there are a number of blogs, 50 or so to be exact, by Google people (Googlers as they have become known as). We have reviewed over 120 Google-related blogs and came up with the Top 50 Google Blogs. We took the time to visit these 120+ blogs and have compiled a list of the Top 50 Google Blogs.

Note: While there are a number of unofficial Google related blogs, this list contains only blogs that have been released by Google itself or from current Google employees.
