Here’s a Blogging Tip for you!
- 5 Comment
Kevin from Blogging Tips runs a great blog. He has a whole arsenal of bloggers to write the latest news and their opinions on the blogosphere.
Great Domain Name
Obviously, first off this is a great domain for a blog. At blogging tips Kevin wants to you to “take your blog to the next level!” using his tips, tricks, help and advice. I do think he should definitely work the domain name though. I googled “blogging tips” and “blog tips” and he’s not on the first page for either one.
He did things right!
I mentioned I found Kevin’s blog from other reviews. He bought two reviews, from two powerful and influential bloggers. I subscribed to Blogging Tips after Kumikos Review, and made sure to keep it after John’s Review.
He waited to order these reviews after he had some good content and information to read on his blog. That skyrocketed his subscriber level to over 300, and gave him a good Alexa Ranking to work with. Definitely a great move, and another from getting a review from us.
Now That He Has the Visitors…
Competitions! Blogging Tips has held some great competitions, last month it was a “Win a Mascot” competition.
This month there are several competitions. I mentioned one on Comment Friday, where you can win 1 year of free hosting and a free domain name. The person ranked #1 for his keyword term on google will win the prize.
The second competition prize is a new blog called Zune Zag. ‘Focusing on the Microsoft Zune mp3 player”. This contest is pretty straightforward, just guess how many unique visitors he will receive on June 20th, in the comment section of his June Competition post.
The last competition is for 100$ cash! I could definitely use that as could most bloggers trying to earn a decent income via blogging. To win the cash, all you need to do is register to the Blogging Tips Forum and guess how many page views and posts he will receive.
What I didn’t like about this is it actually took me a while to realize it was three different competitions, and not 1 competition with 3 prizes. I would definitely recommend breaking up the competitions into different posts and dates. Then you could run a competition a week or something to that extent.
At First Blogging Tips Didn’t Hold My Attention
I wasn’t as active reading blogging tips after I first expressed interest in becoming a guest poster due to several reasons.
- After receiving an okay to become a guest blogger, I never received another email. I was actually excited because Kevin had heard of me, but I hadn’t read his blog much yet. After the ego boost, I didn’t hear back.
- The stream of posts and guest posters weren’t as interesting to me. There would be several posts in a day, not made by Kevin. I don’t blame him for this as many bloggers were on his hype due to the reviews he’d purchased and the content he provided.
- Lastly, his blogging tips weren’t the tips I was looking for. He started blogging about scripts and other things I wasn’t really interested in. I can barely install a plugin! He also noticed the drop in RSS feed readers after his subjects changed.
Now That He Has My Attention…
When reviewing a blog or website, I want to give my full effort, and research the blog. So now that he has my attention I found some great articles.
With all the talk about the robot file on your domain and supplemented pages indexed in google, bloggers may find this post useful.
Blogging Should Be Easy
I’ve personally been racking my brain for posts and ideas, but I don’t think I need a break. Blogging should never feel like hard work, do you agree?
Doing Sponsored Reviews the right way
