Guest Blogging is Like Helping a Friend Move

Guest Blogging is Like Helping a Friend Move
21 Sep 2010

Blogging Bear with me on this one. I was helping my good friend move yesterday and in the tedium of moving box after box of their stuff into “the room” made my mind wander. While it was wandering I hit upon guest blogging as akin to helping a friend move. Let me illustrate. It is not your house No matter what you think of the house, remember that it is not your house. You do not have to live there but you do have to be a good guest. So, as ...

Hustle like ‘Shanky’

Hustle like ‘Shanky’
07 Sep 2010

Blogging I’m not a sports guy and I hardly ever go to sporting events. However, I did have the chance to go to a special event with my Dad and Grandfather to see the hometown team play an away game. That was a once in a lifetime trip for me because I had never gone on a trip with just my Dad and Grandfather before. We went a baseball game and what was most entertaining for me wasn’t the action on the field but the hustle in the stands. ...

Listening to the Voice of the Audience

Listening to the Voice of the Audience
31 Aug 2010

Blogging I was just reading Patti Stafford’s post on Staying Motivated when you are not seeing results and I had to chuckle to myself because I’ve just recently changed things up big time on my own blog. For seven years I’ve written about myself and my life through my blog. I started doing a photograph a day in 2005 and would post the photo and write something about it or about my family. I began to wonder why I wasn’t getting ...

Blogging I’ve been reading a ton of comic books lately. Okay, scratch that, I’ve been reading a lot of comic books my whole life but now I am reading a ton of them on my iPad (apps like Graphic.ly, Comixology, Marvel and DC). As I read through them I see that there are some great themes that you should be using for your blog posts. And I’m going to attempt to go and break it down for you. Establish Your Story When you pick up a comic ...

03 Aug 2010

Blogging, Promote your blog Last Week I wrote a post titled 4 Must Have Photo Plugins for WordPress. It got a pretty good response from people who were excited about what I mentioned. One comment however sparked my mind for today’s post. Here is what the comment said. The problem with some of these plugins is the fact that you are hosting photos off site and giving these other sites the traffic that you should have.

Is Your Blog A Sharktopus?

Is Your Blog A Sharktopus?
20 Jul 2010

Blogging Sharktopus is a new SyFy movie that is helmed by Roger Corman. The movie is about a crazy cross between a shark and an octopus. Not only does it swim through the water, propel itself out of the water or grab on to ships and people in the water but it comes out of the water and onto land wreaking havoc everywhere. From the trailer it looks like this killing machine was genetically created and is radio controlled. Of course the control gets lost ...
