Blogging Like a Pro: Learn How To Do Effective Content Research

Posted in Blogging, Social Media, Tips, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 10 Comments

We did get our article idea, but we still have a lot more work to do, we need to move on and now work on research. It is very important to research the right way, because that will be the key to your success. People come to your blog because of your content and you need to make sure you’ll offer the highest quality,  find new tools, resources – something your reader wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. But how do you provide and achieve such quality?

The answer is good research – if you use internet tools, search engines, social media and forums in the right way, you’ll easily be able to find unique content for your blog posts. While research may seem to be a simple task, it’s not always enough to just use Google or rely on your experiences. I don’t think you need to always do deep research, but it’s good to be aware what’s being written elsewhere, so you can expand your opinion. You need to find that golden ratio – if you’re inspired too much and you may copy others, don’t do any research at all and you’ll end up providing your readers with incomplete information.

How To Find Article Ideas To Write About, Write Sticking Points

Posted in Blogging, News, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 11 Comments

I’m very happy to present the next chapter of my blogging series. Today’s topic is very important, being able to find new article ideas is crucial for any blogging business because we function the same way as magazines do – people come back to us because of the content, of course there are other things, but let’s face it, without the content they wouldn’t come back. We need to have a never ending well of ideas to engage our readers, which is not an easy task, so how do we stay inspired?

Even when you start a new blog, it’s smart to write a list of 20-30 article ideas before you launch just to make sure you’ll have something to write about for at least the first month or two. Coming up with 20-30 ideas should be easy, but what about 100,200, or even 300? How do some of these writers seem to have an endless supply of things to write about?

Forums: Precursor to Social Media

Posted in Blogging, Interviews, Social Media, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 5 Comments

We had a good friend back in the day. A friend which was with us wherever we went. Everything comes to an end eventually and we learn to move on. Our aforementioned friend is of course the forums, which were a very important part of our internet life for a very long time, they still are but their importance is fading. How did something so important started losing its relevance? Everything changes, including the way we browse the web, what once was a necessity is becoming a hassle and it’s not only the case with the forums. For the sake of this article though, we’re going to focus on it in particular.

Posted in Blogging, Freelance, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 53 Comments

Discussion on blogs has significantly dropped over the last couple of years. Going back, you will see people fighting or immensely contributing their knowledge on blogs via comments. There are actually only a few websites/blogs left with a large number of commenters that deserve praise. Most of the comments we see now are either spam or a little thank you note to promote their websites. WHY?

Piracy and Plagiarism in the Modern World

Posted in Blogging, Freelance, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 10 Comments

Ever since man created the concept of “mine” and “yours” originality and plagiarism has always been an issue. Plagiarism is defined as a close imitation or an exact copy of a piece of work or idea. Many creative geniuses have fallen into oblivion because someone of higher status stole their product or idea and claimed it as their own. Piracy, on the other hand, is the illegal distribution of materials. Evil? Very. But it happens.
