Why Feedburner Doesn’t Love Us Anymore

Why Feedburner Doesn’t Love Us Anymore
15 Jan 2010

Blogging I almost feel guilty about positioning this as a problem.  With earthquakes devasting an entire nation, with the U.S. economy sending the world economic markets into the crapper, this one isn’t on a level to legitimately describe it as a nightmare. But it sure felt like one. Like so many other bloggers who are foolish enough to obsess over their Feedburner number, I woke up two days ago to a worst-case scenario from blogging hell: my ...

Blogging As we’re entering the new year, it’s possible you’re finding yourself in something of a blogging rut. Maybe your traffic growth has flattened some, your entries don’t feel as good as they once were or you just don’t seem to be making any progress. There is many reasons that this could happen, some of them unavoidable, but many bloggers sabotage their own efforts without realizing it. If things aren’t coming up ...

Setting Daily Intentions to Achieve Your Goals

Setting Daily Intentions to Achieve Your Goals
13 Jan 2010

Writing In my post Tips for Success: Begin With the End in Mind I talked about goals and other such things. Today I want to talk about setting intentions and not leaving things to chance. Setting intentions is different than setting goals; intentions are more for the here and now—in the moment—than they are for long term. But setting daily intentions will help you achieve your goals. Decide how you want to feel and what you want to accomplish. You ...

Blogging for Therapy and Skill Development
13 Jan 2010

Blogging Do you ever wonder why you really blog? Perhaps it’s for money, or perhaps there’s just some subject for which you feel strongly.

And there are several ways in which blogging can help you, on a personal level, outside of the mere act ...

WordPress Plugins From a marketing point of view, it’s important to cloak your links. Cloaking links is a little deceiving in some ways as the URL is hiding the true destination of the link. Unfortunately, many spammers use this technique to mislead visitors into where they are going. Though there are good reasons why legitimate bloggers and marketers use cloaking. The most obvious one being presentation. The link www.bloggingtips.com/go/websitename looks ...

Theme Forest Make Amends

Theme Forest Make Amends
11 Jan 2010

WordPress Themes Last week I spoke about the problem I had with Theme Forest. Specifically, the theme I purchased wasn’t working correctly and neither the theme designer nor Envato support were answering my emails. Thankfully, the issue has now been resolved. Chris Wallace was away for a few weeks so wasn’t able to reply to customers. He has posted an updated zip file on Theme Forest. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work. Though at the very ...
