Do you have a good method for how to write a blog post?
It’s a lot easier to write posts quickly if you do. Who doesn’t need that?
I start with an outline and then I add other important elements of the post that completes the process.
This helps me do two things.
It keeps my posts consistent; and when it comes to links, photos, signature, call to action, P.S., and links, I don’t want to forget anything, so consistency is important.
Secondly, I can write posts faster every time because I’ve got everything I need right in front of me for every post. Read More →

No doubt, your guest posts are helping with links and traffic, but what about your guest post byline?
Is it working as hard as your content? Are you getting the full potential out of your byline?
Don’t simply create a guest post for the sole purpose of getting inbound links and call it good. Use guest posting to boost your sign-ups, get you more clicks, and potentially boost sales as well.
Here are byline tips and ready-to-use byline templates that I use, and you’re welcome to copy and use them for your next guest post. Read More →

In reality professional blogging and making money online is just as tough as any other “proper job”. It requires organization, creativity and good time management; three things you’ll see on almost every job advertisement across the world. Read More →
Did you ever think that your blog writing style could be turning your visitors away?
A painful thought isn’t it? But it could be, especially if you’re writing your blog posts based on how you were taught to write in school.
Blog writing is different than traditional editorial or article writing. Your blog needs to project a writing style that is interesting, easy to read and personalized.

It’s their style of writing. It draws you in at the title, and keeps you reading until the very end.
So how do they do it?
Their writing style is relaxed, easy to read and holds your reader’s interest from one point to the next. Unlike the traditional, academic style of writing that can be dull and an effort to get through.
Here are some helpful tips that will improve your writing by showing you a writing style that will keep readers interested from beginning to end.
