This is written by Chris Poteet It amazes me how many bloggers spent an inordinate amount of time trying to improve their hits, comments, etc. that they forget the most important element in having a good blog.

The content of your blog is what separates the good from the bad, and the visited to the not visited.What will follow are tips that will help to ensure that your sphere of influence in the blogging […]

This is written by Haasim Mahanaim The so-called “Microsoft Scandal” began when Microsoft and public relations firm, Edelman PR, gave 90 influential bloggers high-end laptops. The machines were powered by Microsoft’s yet-to-be released operating system, Windows Vista. The computers were accompanied with a letter (or a phone call) that described the laptops as a “present” with “no strings attached”. Bloggers were free to keep the machines or give them away. They were told that they had no obligation to review Microsoft’s new operating system – let alone provide a favorable one. When news of the giveaway became […]

I decided to add an element into the romanian blogosphere, an element that might shake it up so badly that people wouldn’t even know what hit ‘em. And that element, my friends, is a blog corecting the language errors of other blogs. And a purpose I had: get the blog on the front page of the most visited blog in Romania, in under 1 month. To ruin the surprise, I managed to achieve my goal in just a week’s time. This is my story. Being only a humble […]

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you. This is written by Abhijit Nadgouda I never considered writing a necessity. Understandably, I was not a big fan of documentation. It required me to do a lot of things that I was not interested in, like improving my language vocabulary and grammar, and getting it proofed by the ones with an upper hand. I was too busy with programming languages to worry about such things, talking to the machines was more interesting than talking to people. Things slowly changed with my work. I was suddenly supposed to do many more things, and my talks with people […]

This is written by Claudia Pena Entry 9-21-06: Mayans and many Mexicans today still have a delicacy of quail in rose petals…wow, they can say their fecal matter smells like roses and be honest. Are there any more cultures that have such delicacy? On that same month I also wrote one of my longest pieces about my strained relationship with my mother and took a political stand on the climate fear on my website. I spent hours on the computer. From the time I came home from work at 5 until midnight, I was writing, reading, searching, […]

This is written by The Private Intellectual It’s probably something which you hardly notice, something which is there, but also not there. You see it every single day of your waking life – some people even dream about it – and yet you don’t see it or, at least, it doesn’t register in the same way. Advertising is as much a part of our lives as eating and drinking: no matter where you are or what you are doing, there is something close at hand which is advertising a product someone wants you to buy. It could […]

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you. This is written by Ronald Huereca When writing for a blog, there are what seems an endless amount of topics to choose from. Bloggers write about design, cars, blogging, technology, gadgets, and more. However, there comes a time when bloggers are running on empty and can’t decide what to write about. During those lull-in-blogging moments, certain bloggers may be tempted to write about topics as useless as making a grilled-cheese sandwich. Throughout my limited exposure in the blogging world, I have come across topics that seem as taboo as yelling “bomb” in a movie theater. Within this […]

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you. This is written by Infocrat Who are bloggers? Why do they blog? What do they blog about? Find out. Why do people keep blogs? What drives millions of people to spew billions of weightless words out into the void? Some, perhaps most, are personal bloggers. They create a blog as a public diary, so that their friends, family, and fan clubs can keep tabs on what they’re up to from day to day. It’s a way of record-keeping as well; it’s comforting to look back through one’s archives and find that the all-consuming troubles of November 2005 […]
