We’re Certainly Getting Noticed — Seniors That Is

When I shifted the focus of this blog a few months ago to seniors and retirees making money online there was virtually no one interested in the subject.  In fact I immediately ranked number one or two on a Google search for that term ..… Read the rest

Time Sensitive Recommendation

Here’s something about a program  you’ve seen me recommend before.  I wouldn’t make another blog post about this so soon, except there is a real-world time limit.

Yaro Starak who is a long-time, multi-thousand dollar a month blogger developed a great course called "BlogMastermind".  this is a private, for pay instructor-guided course that is designed to take people from square one to successful, money-making blogging.  It works.  taro’s had over 500 satisfied members over the time he’s been running the course.  On December 10th he plans to close the course to new members so as to make sure he and his teaching assistants (who also have excellent, for-real blogging credentials) can devote enough time to current clients.… Read the rest

Empowering Retirement With a Blog

A few days ago I recommended an eBook recently published by a blogging friend of mine, Pat B. Doyle called Blog Traffic Jumpstart.  I got a few comments/emails, etc. that seemed to think I was missing the mark on my post which was, of course, nothing but an announcement/recommendation for Pat’s book.  What did this have to do with my general theme of making money … aside from making money for me if anyone clicked on the link and bought the book?  Fair question.  Here’s an answer:

If you are reading this blog because you are earning money online or exploring the idea of earning money on line, no matter if you are a senior citizen or a high school sophomore, a blog is an important tool.  And if you have a blog, you need traffic.  Pat has an excellent record for attracting traffic and page rank in a short time, and she writes with clarity and conviction … that’s why.  If you need a hammer to build a fence and I know that a Stanley is much better than the Wal*Mart "thumb-buster" you are thinking of buying, I’m going to recommend the Stanley.  You can build a fence with a rock to hammer in the nails, but it’s a poor, time consuming, pain-prone way to do it.… Read the rest

Delighted To Pass this On

One of the risks of delving into the field of blogging …. especially in the little niche of “Meta Blogs” … blogs abou blogs … is that any time you are thinking you are keeping up you are indoubtedly falling behind … but that’s ok, I’m never going to be a winning runner, but I do like to finish the marathons I enter.… Read the rest

A Blog Is A Blog But Is Also A Website Or Is It?

A few days ago I posted something to give a little definition to the question is a blog a website, is a website a blog, or?

Today I came across this interesting discussion:

… It’s easy to confuse blogs with plain old personal sites, especially if you only consider blogs as an online diary of telling whoever cares what you did and ate that day.

Days Late But Not Dollars Short

I really feel foolish that I haven’t posted this sooner … but it’s been a long weekend for most of you and this will be just in time to give you something to get started for the coming week … I just did come more clean-up on one of my old sites that I am "resurrecting" and added another advertising  program … you … are going to do something this coming week, aren’t you … and not just read more blogs like this?… Read the rest
