Post everyday

When you start a brand new blog, it’s smart to add a post every day. By putting up a new post every day, you’ll start to win returning readers right away, so that you can get your new blog off to a robust start. Returning readers mean a consistent stream of traffic that grows through word of mouth, so you can count on increasing numbers of visitors without having to worry about marketing. Uploading a post every day will help make your new blog credible and distinctive, two qualities that translate into a devoted readership. Read on to learn how and why putting up a post every day is the best thing you can do for your new blog, why its especially important to post every day during the first month, and how to take your emerging blog to the next stage.

Get Credible
To hold reader interest, a new blog needs to earn credibility fast. The best way to overcome this reader bias against new blogs is to post every day. Because many people start blogs, post once or twice, and then drop the project, surfers are often skeptical of a new blog, and rightly so. After all, until they see otherwise, they have no reason to believe the creator is committed to the project. Posting on your new blog every day for the first few weeks shows visitors that you’re devoted to continuing to provide exciting new content. Readers will understand that if you’re making your new blog enough of a priority that you can find time to post every day, you’re serious about blogging, and are not about to wander off on a whim. This will earn you fast credibility with your readers.
Get Distinctive
To get big visitor numbers, you’ll need returning readers who continue coming back to your site because they enjoy your subject matter, your unique writing style, and everything that makes your blog distinctive. If you can put up a post every day, your new blog will fast accumulate lots of pages, which means lots of chances for readers to get to know you. One of the reasons why it’s unusual for a new blog to attract large amounts of traffic is that readers can’t recognize what distinguishes a new blog from the pack until they get to know the writer’s voice, and that can’t happen unless there is a fair amount of content to browse through. The more information you can give a surfer about the tone and content of your new blog, the more likely you’ll be to hook the valuable repeat visitors who want what you’re writing. The best way to get this information across to surfers isn’t to have a mission statement or a summary of your goals on your front page. The best way is to deliver the goods, so post every day and start building up an impressive archive that will hook return visitors from the start of your new blog.

When Your New Blog Ain’t So New Anymore
Once you’ve gotten your new blog off to a great start, it won’t be a new blog anymore. This means that you can skip a day once in a while and still retain the credibility, distinction, and devoted visitors that you’ve earned.  It’s not as crucial to post every day once your new blog has passed its one month anniversary, because an established blog has some credibility just by virtue of its staying power, and your archives of postings will help readers see how you're distinctive right away.  However, it’s still a good idea to post as often as you can. After all, although your blog may have been up for a while, it’s still a new blog to every new reader, so put your best foot forward by updating often. Although you may not need to post every day, it is important to keep adding fresh new content to your blog on a regular basis. Frequent posting means better search engine rankings, so you’ll keep winning new visitors while solidifying your relationship with your returning fans. If you can’t post every day, try to post regularly one or two days a week; that way, your readership will know when to expect new content, and they’ll be sure to check it out.

Business Opp

As a young boy of eight years of age my life included not much more then school, work and sleep. Each aspect of my life took approximately eight hours and constituted a third of my daily time within any twenty-four hour period. From morning until night my hand was flipping through pages of books, blistering my small hands on a hoe, or clenching my white bed sheets with my hand. My hands were always put to good use. Despite my mundane style of early life I have learned to listen for business opportunities and harvest the results.

Farming as a major occupation has now ceased to be for the majority of Americans who have become accustomed to food in a can and a few hundred television channels. Apple pie, chords of wood piled in the back yard, and draft horses sound more like something from a Christmas carol or a Budweiser commercial then from a true way of living. Yet this simple lifestyle, and the values that come from it, have taught many worthy Americans how to run and succeed in business. Have you ever heard of Henry Ford, George Washington, Isaac Newton, or Thomas Edison?

Before one laughs at such an odd conclusion they might consider that a farm is a business. The same skills that would be required for corporate success often present themselves daily to farmers. Children learn early how to calculate the yield of an acre and how much a bushel will earn in one's local economy. Of course, such an education wouldn't be complete unless their fathers stopped scanning the local newspapers to find out how much corn is trading in Wall Street for on any particular day.

Certainly the hard skills of math, commodities, production, supply chain and economy aren't the only skills needed to start a successful business. Business gurus must also learn how to set a goal and meet that goal, be persistent enough to wake up every morning to tackle business problems, and need the mental toughness to defeat challenges as they present themselves. In other words, they must have the right personality traits to succeed in business.
Kids on a farm know hard work. Shucking corn, pulling weeds, hauling wood, pushing old Betsy out of the creek, and skinning chicken isn't anything if it isn't hard work. Farm kids wake up every morning to a long list of chores and work each day and complete them without complaint. They learn by the age of eight to handle responsibilities and tackle their goals. Their blisters and responsibilities ensure that they can face any challenge that may present itself in the future.

As the snow sloshed under my rubber boots, and my scarf waved in the wind, at the age of eight I came to the realization that I will someday live farther then "a stones throw away" from all of my other relatives. Since that time I have devoted myself to the scholarly pursuit of business and the rewards it has to offer. Deep nights have been spent in hermit like solitude thinking about the next great business opportunity. While other kids collected baseball cards, I was watering the fields and thinking about a more efficient method of finishing the job.

On his eighth birthday my son received an ear of corn which he examined closely with curiosity. Passing it from hand to hand he kept looking at me and back at the corn in hopes of figuring out why his father would give him such a ludicrous gift. The poor boy finally decided he was going to investigate what was under its wrapping. As he pulled the ears back in hopes of finding some money or other hidden oddity I said, "This ear of corn listens for the next great business opportunity".

Increasing your RSS

Every strong website or blog has an RSS feed. These feeds are used by subscribers to read your content and stay updated when changes happen. The stronger the site is in maintaining and increasing these visitors the more money the site will make. However, RSS feeds work off of their own business model and website owners should understand what works in RSS feeds and what doesn't.

Tips for Increasing RSS Feed Subscriptions:

Original Content: Original content gives readers a reason to subscribe to your feed. If they can get the information somewhere else they will subscribe there. Even though it is acceptable to add interesting articles from other authors most of the articles should be uniquely designed for your site.

As well as content the owner of the blog or website should concern himself or herself with quality over quantity. Misspelled words, poor grammar and typos detract from the overall impression of your site. Continual mistakes will make it appear as though you are an amateur.

Credibility: Subscribers to your work want to know that what you are telling them is the truth. They don't enjoy information that is questionable and may hamper their overall reading experience. Questionability is a sign of an amateur who can't back up his work.

There are a number of ways to increase credibility. Quoting well known people in your writing, using references like you were in college, having an appropriate knowledgeable tone for your work. It is also important to understand that the quality of your work (i.e. spelling) also supports the overall credibility of what you are saying.

Listen to Your Audience: The internet group is very verbal about what they like and what they don't like. Listen to your audience's feedback, comments and emails. Watch how certain articles bring in new visitors and try and offer similar type content.
You may also consider adding a poll to your website so that you know exactly what the want. Once you have narrowed down your overall topic base you can then ask them which they prefer. After you have collected this information you can move forward in the process of designing your page and writing content that appeals to them.

Getting Exposed: The best way to increase your overall RSS subscribers is to get your information out there. Submit your RSS feed to RSS directories. You can either do this for free by hand or you can pay a service that will help you submit to these directories. The more times people see our RSS subscription button the more people will subscribe to it. It is a numbers game.

The second method is to locate this subscription feed in a place that everyone is going to see it. Simply shoving this feed some haphazard place on your page isn't going to work. Market in your site, write about it and make your readers aware.

Make Money with RSS

Advertising has enjoyed a steady rate of growth on the Internet ever since the general public was first introduced to cyberspace. Along with these ads, the opportunities to make money from them have grown as well. Google started the recent trend of profitable marketing with AdSense; now, with RSS being the latest trend, you may soon find yourself earning income with RSS feeds.

Is such a thing even possible? Simply put, yes. RSS is a new vehicle for advertising, and if you use it correctly you could easily create more client interest in your business.

Since many people still don't know what RSS is or how to use it, I've previously written an article on the subject (you can click the link I've included here to see it.) In a nutshell, RSS is the acronym for "Really Simple Syndication". Similar to a blogroll, it searches the Internet for content related to the parameters you set and automatically adds that content to your site. Before you get upset, it's not plagiarism-the owner of the content you end up publishing has willingly chosen to let others display their work on other websites through the use of an RSS "feed".

This is a benefit to both you and the RSS feeder, since they're having their content displayed to a wider audience than they usually would, and you get to use that content to promote your own website. The content that usually ends up in an RSS feed can be press releases, blog posts, or virtually anything related to the keywords you specify.

If you opt to use RSS feeds on your site, you never have to worry about running out of content. With RSS you have a program that's constantly scouring the web for any and all new information, every single day, all for the sole purpose of helping your website. This way your site is always kept in the public eye with fresh, updated content on a regular basis. How can anyone turn down an opportunity like that? If you work at tweaking your search a little, you can even find content that isn't housed anywhere else. That's extra money in your pocket, and you didn't even have to walk outside to do it.
The true test of your website will come when the client clicks onto it and reads the RSS feed. They're satisfied, but what else can you offer them? If you rely only on that updated content, clients will quickly realize they can get that information from the publisher directly and bypass you entirely. It's very important you offer some other form of incentive, whether it be your own take on the content the feed is adding to your site, or even a simple coupon related to the kind of feed you're receiving.

Make it an irresistible mix of shared and unique content, and you'll have the perfect website that will attract more customers to your site and, in turn, increase your revenue with little effort.

Build Traffic

It is important to build traffic using search engines. Search engines let people know that your website exists. Search Engines is one of the most important methods of advertisements on the Internet. Your website can be listed in most of the popular search engines without paying a ton of money. Here are five tips on how to build traffic using search engines.


It is important to pay attention to the keywords on your website. Why? Customers find you by keywords. The search engine will list your website by rank and keywords. The keywords are words are an individual would most likely search for in a search engine to find your company. The more keywords you use then you will generate more traffic to your website through search engines. For example, if you sell soaps then you want to use the word soaps a variety of times through the text on your website. Keywords will help you build traffic using search engines. Think of what words that your customers would most likely type into an search engine to find you. Think of what products that your customers are most interested in.


Your company can become popular on Search Engines. You can be the first in ranking on the search engines across the Internet. It is possible to have your website come up first in an search engine than your competitor. You just need to have the right amount of traffic and use enough keywords.

Your competitor can lose customers

You have the advantage when your competitor website isn't ranked very high in search engines. It makes them lose customers when it is difficult to find a website to place a order. You can generate more orders from their customers if your website is much easier to find in the search engine.

Use location in your keywords

You can use location in your keywords. It will help build traffic using search engines when you use location keywords. You can get more local customers this way. You will also probably get customers to order your products that live a few towns away.

Write articles or booklets to build traffic
Make sure to put your company name on every article that you write. You want to include your website address on every article. The articles will get indexed into an search engine. The articles will build traffic to your website since it will bring the visitors to a product that he or she is looking for.
