Well as y’all know, Blogging is the one of the simplest way which can help you make good money online. As we all believe that Internet is a small universe of information and we often get paid to dig this universe. So lets start building your small world in it and name it as blogging to explore new information and get paid for our unique ideas through unique content.
We have attached a very good blogging file that will help you understand the concept of blogging and make money with it. And eventually, creating such Blogs, not only your earning Money, you are also giving some of your unique ideas and thoughts (whether in form of Art, Photography, Literature, Technical or any kind of interesting field.) to the concerned readers.
Once you understand the blogging concept then you are all set to start your blog and make money by becoming a Google Adsense Publisher. You can also become a publisher for Amazon to start selling their product and earn commission from them. But for all these things you first need to emphasis on Blogging and Promoting your Blog online. For that, you could refer to Famous Blogs, take some ideas from there about Site Promotion and Money Making.
Besides, I’ve something as a Gift for y’all. 😉
Recently, I’ve just read a E-book of ” 101 Ways To Becoming a Better Blogger “ by ” Ellie Harrison “. It is really interesting and i enjoyed a lot while reading this whole book. It’s just 43 page PDF file (about 607 KB size). It contains all the necessary and indeed worth helpful Blogging Tips, starting from the scratch, from Site Promoting to Money Making.
Well, It took me a whole day to read as I’m already a Blogger and know somewhat its Tricks and Trades. But still, got something NEW to learn more about Blogging, which I would follow in future. For dummies, It would take hardly a week I suppose. So, Let’s Get it Started.
You can DOWNLOAD this PDF of this E-Book.

Hello Bloggers !! 8)
I’m back again in the my Technical Yard section. I am about tell y’all something really cool and fascinating Stuff which is an awesome Widget for any Blog. Well this one, not only Blogger, but also other people would like it as well. I’m simply talking about a customized Music I-Pod Playlist, which runs on a GUI Music Player created by Mixpod.com, which simply plays Music of your selected Songs in a Playlist. It’s a very Cool Stuff to add in your Blog as many people like to have such thing in a blog these days. So just try it once for sure.
Not only for Blogs Like- WordPress and Blogspot, Add a Mixpod to any webpage and make people to listen to your Music Playlist. Every time someone visits your blog, He/She will be able to hear the Music of your selected Playlist on your very own Mixpod. Ohh !! That sounds really Cool huh !! 8)
It’s very very simple to add to your Blog.
First of all, visit the Official Mixpod Website, where you’ve to Create an account by Signing up at there. It’s just simple, like you create an account in Facebook. Just fill up the necessary details and then, You’re done !!
After making an account on there, It’s time to Create a New Playlist by clicking the required Tab for that. Here you’ve to first, choose a Skin which you would like to have in your Music Player. There are plenty of options to choose any one of them. Some of them like- Mixpod, MixTape, Old School,Ninja, Jeroen V2 etc. are typically MP3 Players only. Whereas, some other players like – Sidekick, MyPod Touch, Minipod, MyPod Nano etc. are MP3 and Music Video Players as well.
Out of them, My personal favorite is ‘ MyPod Touch ‘, because of its very cool look. 😉 8)
Anyways, after selecting Player Skin, it’s time to Create a Playlist of your favorite songs. Well, this job is very very easy as Mixpod gives you a place to search your favorite song and then add it to your Playlist. You could even change the order of the Songs, by dragging any particular song to the desired position. Otherwise, there is an option to Sort the songs in either Ascending or Descending order. You could even change your Player’s skin as well as Mixpod gives an option to select a Skin, if you are not satisfied with the Previous Skin.
After Creating your Music Playlist of your Music Player, Save the Playlist, by giving a Name(required) and description (optional) to it. Also, select some other options to describe the Genre and Category of your Playlist. You could even give some Tags to it as well. Now, your Playlist is defined as well.
You can now Save it, when you’re all done with the required formalities, and collect the HTML code for your playlist, which you could even Post on your Blog. However, You would be asked to Share/Post this Playlist in Website. Then, Go to Other Sites Tab, Click on ‘More‘ and then, on ‘WordPress‘ button. It would ask for your WordPress Username, its Password and Blog’s URL. Fill those spaces and Post it. But, it would automatically make it as a Post in Blog. 😛
For inserting it as a Widget on your WordPress Blog.
Copy the HTML Code from the Blog Post . Then Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the HTML Text Tab on your sidebar Menu. Paste the HTML Code, add a suitable Heading (your wish) and Save/Activate it.
Finally, you’ve inserted it in your Blog. It plays automatically whenever any visitor comes to your Blog. You and other visitors would get to see the Mixpod Player playing all your favorite songs added in your Playlist, all exclusive in your Blog. Honestly speaking, I have used it long time ago and even used it for a very long time as well. But all those Fun has ended now, as I’m done with it and removed that thing. 😛
But It’s not BAD thing to have it. You could atleast try at once.
!! Just make one and Have Fun !!
If you want to grow your blog, then it’s critical that you take time to promote it. Unfortunately, the old theory, “if you build it, they will come,” doesn’t apply to blogs. With over one hundred million blogs being tracked by blog search engines such as Technorati
, publishing compelling content isn’t enough to drive awareness and traffic for your blog. Instead, you need to invest in some old-fashioned sweat equity to give your blog a traffic boost. The 10 free blog promotion tips below will help you get started.
1. Comment On Other’s Posts
An easy way to give your blog a promotional boost is by commenting on other blogs
. Each time you comment, enter the same name and URL
in the corresponding fields in the blog comment form. Doing so will help your search engine optimization
efforts over time. When you leave relevant, interesting and useful comments on other blogs (particularly those that are related to your own blog’s topic), people will notice and follow the link back to your blog to learn more about you and read more of what you have to say.
2. Post Frequently
can boost your search engine traffic. Each new post acts as a new entry point for search engines to find your blogs. Writing with search engine optimization in mind can also boost the potential each of your posts has to lead traffic to your blog.
3. Participate in Online Forums
Join forums related to your blog topic and become an active, contributing member. Include a link to your blog in your forum signature, so it’s always available to other members.
4. Use Social Media
Leverage the promotional opportunities that the social web
provides. Join social networking
sites like Facebook and LinkedIn and include links to your blogs and recent posts in your profiles. Join social bookmarking
sites like Digg
and submit great content (not just your own). Additionally, consider jumping on the microblogging bandwagon and join Twitter
. All of these efforts will increase awareness of your blog and give it added exposure.
5. Link to Other Blogs in Your Own Posts
Try to include links to other blogs in your own blog posts. Refer to other blogs you enjoy reading or specific posts you found particularly interesting. When those other blogs have the trackback
feature turned on in their blogging software
programs, you’ll automatically get a link back to your own blog in the comment section of those posts. At the very least, the other blogger will see the incoming links from your blog in their blog statistic
reports, putting you and your blog on his or her radar, and that means more exposure for you.
6. Include Your Blog Link
Basically, include your blog URL everywhere you can. Your email signature and business cards are two of the most obvious places to promote your blog with a link or printed URL, but don’t be afraid to think out of the box. Promotion is key to success when it comes to blogging. Don’t be shy about tooting your own horn!
7. Hold a Blog Contest
are a great way to attract new visitors to your blog. The most important thing to remember when using a blog contest as a promotional tool is to get the word out about the contest by announcing it on contest websites
8. Join a Blog Carnival
are an easy way to get links to your blog in front of a lot of people. The more closely related to your blog topic that the carnival is, the more traffic you’ll get from it.
9. Guest Blog
Offer your services as a guest blogger
for other blogs in your niche, particularly ones that get more traffic than yours does. Guest blogging is a great way to get links to your blog and your own thoughts and writing in front of people who are likely to be interested in learning more about you and your blog.
10. Write Multiple Sites and Link Them Together
The more blogs or websites that you write, the more interlinking is possible. That interlinking can be used to promote your blog through different channels that might attract different audiences. Create an integrated blog marketing plan by aligning your promotion efforts across your various blogs and websites to reap the biggest rewards.
I’ve just browsed through Internet for downloading E-books for my IT Programming course. And finally, I’ve got to see this Website Site. It’s a very good to site to get E-books, not only Programming, but also on other topics Like- Literature, Humor, Tutorials etc. etc. In short, It’s a place where you could find E-books on various topics by many renowned authors and publishers.
Recently I began to buy eBooks for the Kindle application on my iPad. While I still love paper books, the digital wiles of eBooks are looking increasingly attractive to me. Below are five eBook features that may tempt you to buy electronic books too.
I should note that I wasn’t a hold-out on eBooks for moral reasons. I simply couldn’t access them until recently. Amazon’s Kindle, Sony’s Reader and Barnes & Noble’s Nook have all been either unavailable to people outside the US, or the eBook stores to populate them have been inaccessible. However with the Kindle for iPad, I’ve finally been able to enjoy the forbidden fruit of eBooks.
Moreover, You’ve got certain reasons to prefer E-books better than normal Paper Books. Here they are as follows :-
1. Social Highlighting
I must add that one thing I miss about paper books is the personal touch, for example receiving a book from a friend with their marked up highlights. By contrast, there’s something a bit impersonal about electronic highlighting. But perhaps eBooks will evolve to enable more personal sharing of highlights, perhaps even mimicing your hand writing style.Being able to highlight quotes and passages and easily find them again is a key feature that eBooks have over paper books. This activity can also be social – Audrey Watters pointed me to an Amazon Kindle page featuring the most highlighted passages of all time.
The ability to create and then easily display archived notes is a big plus for eBooks. Instead of scribbling in small writing in the margins of a paper book, you can type a clear note in your eReader.
3. Look-up of words
I recently bought a few books of poetry in the Kindle Store. Readers of poetry will know that modern poets like to use big and esoteric words. So one feature I have really enjoyed over the past week is tapping a word and having the definition displayed below. Very helpful and something that made me thankful I had the eBook version of the poetry.
4. Ability to Tweet & Facebook quotes
@Tooq commented via Twitter that he/she likes the ability to tweet or send to Facebook quotes from books, on the Kindle. This feature was introduced to Amazon Kindle 2.5 at the end of April.
You can search for topics or keywords inside your eBook, or out on the Web. Similar to the word look-up feature, this is something that augments the reading experience.
Most of these features are just the tip of the iceberg of what eBooks are capable of. As ReadWriteWeb’s Curt Hopkins opined yesterday, “the e-book format has inherent multimedia possibilities: trailers, background and reference materials, interviews, actors reciting the poems the book contains.”
Those multimedia features probably need to come from publishers, rather than eReader manufacturers.
In the meantime, let us know in the comments what your current favorite eBook features are. Or are you still a paper book hold-out?
I must recommend to you to JOIN this one for sure. Though You’ve to fetch some MONEY initially for that cause it’s not for FREE 😛 Still, It’s cool.
!! Have a Try !!
Well Guys !!
I’ve just found an amazing cool Stuff which is an awesome Widget for my Blog. It’s just a Flag Counter, which simply counts the number of visitors from different countries across the Globe. It’s a very Cool Stuff to add in your Blog. Here you’ll get an idea about the countries of visitors viewing your Blog.
Not only for Blogs Like- WordPress and Blogspot, Add a free Flag Counter to any webpage and collect flags from all over the world. Every time someone from a new country visits you, a flag will be added to your counter. Not only will this make your site far more interesting, but clicking on your Flag Counter will reveal amazing information and charts!
It’s very very simple to add to your Blog.
1st of all, visit the Official Flag Counter Website. Then create your very own Flag Counter.
For that, you’ve got two options for representing the Visiting Stats :-
(a) Top Countries – where you could see Flags of Top Countries in order
(b) Flag Map – where you could see a World Map with Flags of all Visiting Countries
However, (b) is bit hectic . So I recommend you Try (a) . 😉
Further options are very simple and understandable. You’ll easily get with it. 😀 8)
When your done with the desired settings, Click on the button “Get your Flag Counter”. After that, it would ask for your e-mail, so that you could have an access to manipulate or change settings of your Flag Counter. You could even Skip the Option if you don’t want to manipulate so in future. Then you’ll get the HTML Code for your Flag Counter, which you could even Post on your Blog.
For inserting it as a Widget on your WordPress Blog like I’ve done in mine, copy the HTML Code from the Flag Counter Website Code Box . Then visit to you Blog. Go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the HTML Text Tab on your sidebar Menu. Paste the HTML Code, add a suitable Heading (your wish) and Save/Activate it.
Finally, you’ve inserted it in your Blog. It automatically counts the Page Views of your Blog and categories every visitor in respective countries. You and other visitors would get to see the Page views from different counties of your Blog.
