When I first wrote my original “Why I Hate Blogs” for article submission I was pretty sure that the humor would get some hits but in my wildest dreams I never thought that out of the 26 articles I did write that it would be second in the amount of the hits it did get. Actually it was dark humor because I honestly do hate spending the time blogging away or let us be more specific – I honestly DID hate spending that time.
Now you know what a blog is, but in blogs-name is a web 2.0?!? First of all, it’s not “a” web 2.0, its “the” web 2.0. Web 1.0 is the boring, html links everywhere, non-interactive, non-social internet that most of our online experience is comprised of. Web 2,0 is the multimedia rich, user friendly, options galore, and most importantly SOCAIL web that we’re beginning to experience. Sites that allow users to share videos, bookmarks, have discussions, and integrate content left and right, are being defined as web 2.0 websites.

Creating different types of blog posts and mixing them up during the week will keep your audience interested. It will also keep you from seeing your blogging task as a chore rather than a tool to help you make money online. Whether you are blogging to make money directly from the blog by selling products from it, blogging to drive traffic to an affiliate program or blogging to rank higher in SEO… you need to know about these six different types of easy-to-write blog posts.
Now that you have your list of online blogs you are ready to start contacting blog owners and asking them if they’re interested in having guest posters. In your e-mail explain that you have some great articles that would work great with their blog. Ask them to e-mail you back for more details. Not everyone will respond but those who do will be interested. I like to e-mail about three blog owners a day so I don’t get overwhelmed with responses. Make it a habit of doing this and you should be writing guest posts in no time. Just remember when you’re writing your post that you are offering really good content. The better the content the better the response you will get from the readers.
Some of you may have heard of the legendary Google sandbox, sometimes called, “The Goggle Sandbox Effect.” What happens is that newly listed sites rank well for about two to three weeks, then suddenly drop off the radar screen. These new sites are placed in a type of probational sandbox, away from the “real” sites.
And when your blog gets higher ranking and drive more traffic, then it’s about time to earn the cash money that you’ve dreamt of and this time, and all your efforts and sacrifices will be well rewarded.
