I don’t know how in the world 2013 is flying by so fast, but it feels like it’s going at a lightning speed for me. Is it doing that for you?
Let me start off by sharing some of the neat things I’ve seen throughout my searches on the great Wide Web this week. The first thing that happened was I got a bit of an inspirational video that made me dig in my heels and really work it this week. This little dude produces a powerful punch with his little message.
Then I did some more blog hopping for both my blog and also someone else’s (notice my services page.) I came across so many amazing blogs. There are so many people that are truly making a killing blogging. They are using all of their resources and knowledge to create something awesome.
There are several different blog forums that are worth joining. All of these ladies in charge of these forums are making some pretty good dough each month. You figure at $5.00 a month times 1,000 plus members and the average fee for keeping a site going is less than $200 that’s over $4000 profit. It looks like a good bit of work, but it looks like FUN work. Who wants to join a forum on my site, talking about blogging opportunities, blogging tips, videos we find that are worth watching and sharing, and our lives in general?? Wouldn’t that be fun?? Speaking of forums, I’ve found another one that even has blogging classes as part of their membership. It’s called Mom Spark Media.
I’ve gone back to using HootSuite to help manage my social media sites and groups in one spot. One of my favorite bloggers has given us a quick easy tutorial on how to use HootSuite. I’ve also joined the banned wagon to get them to let us connect our personal Google+ pages within HootSuite.
Speaking of Google+, I’m still learning how to get the most of out. I’ve definitely been enjoying many of the wonderful Hangouts that have been airing by bloggers who are sharing their knowledge with us. However, I got an email to finally get rid of that remarkably long URL and actually use my NAME in the URL. Since I had a Fan Page for my blog (that just gets promotions of my blogs every now and then–which is really spammy–not recommending that anyone do that) I couldn’t use my Tidbits of Experience name. So now, my Google+ URL is : https://plus.google.com/+CrystalGreen/posts. So much easier to remember, and promote. Please don’t ask me how I got the invitation, but I did. I’m so glad I did!
Do Not and I repeat DO NOT waste your money on the books: How to Make Money Online by Mike Omar or How to Start A Blog That People Will Read by Mike Omar. They are the exact same book with the same exact information in it, the only thing he changed was the name of the book and the covers. I’m fuming mad about that detail! Plus he just primarily promotes his website all throughout the book. I’m confident he knows what he’s doing to earn money online, but he makes me wonder if he’s doing it the honest way just because of how he’s done these books!
Well, I’ve shared a lot of blogging information, and shared some blog love along the way.
Jimmy turned 10 years old on the 29th. We went to a local pumpkin patch. We were not overly impressed by the place at all. The corn maze was more of a field maze. Del could literally see all the way across the top of it with complete ease. The pumpkin patch was nothing more than a bunch of small half rotten pumpkins spread out across an open field. The kids had a blast, and that’s what counts the most! Jimmy considered it to be a great birthday because he got to hang out with friends from school and be with his entire family.
Zeva has been fighting a cold and teething like crazy all week. She’s being a trooper though. She’s trying not to be overly fussy.
Tell me how your week has been? Have you learned anything cool and unique this week?
