Automating Your Blog - Ways to Make Blogging Easier

Automating Your Blog - Ways to Make Blogging Easier


We can automate many things in our lives. We have automatic dishwashers to wash our dishes - but somebody has to load it. We have automatic car washes to wash our cars, but we still have to drive the car into the car wash. We can make automated payments, but we still have to make sure that we make the money to pay those bills. The point is that when you think about it, in many cases, automated isn't really so automated. The same is true when it comes to automating your blog.


In theory, you cannot automate a blog. Blogs are meant to be original. They contain your thoughts, information, or your opinions about specific issues or events. You cannot automate your thoughts and therefore there technically is no method for automating your blog. You can, however, make blogging easier. It all starts with organization and preparation.


First, choose blogging software, or a blog host that is simple to set up and simple to use. Many people spend a huge amount of time trying to figure out how to use the software for their blogs. It doesn't have to be that difficult - and if it is, use a different service or different software. The blogging revolution may pass by the time most of us figure out some of that software! Don't waste time with complicated blogs. There are too many other simplified solutions that are available, such as Blogger at http://www.blogger.com or Word Press at http://www.wordpress.com.

Next, make a list of things that you can write about. Try to list enough topics to cover you for a year of blogging if possible. This way, you won't ever have to worry about writer's block. A great deal of time can be wasted each day just trying to figure out what you should blog about. You should even consider taking several days to write blog entries in advance. You could even write all of your blog entries for the year in some cases, unless your topic is more time sensitive. For instance, if you blog about world events, you cannot come up with a list of things to blog about, because those events have yet to occur. Providing Trackbacks to other people's blogs is very important in the world of blogging if you want to build a large readership. Spend some time searching for related blogs, and add them to your news reader. Plan time each day to see what those bloggers are blogging about. 


This may give you fresh ideas for your own blog, and it their posts may even tie in with a topic that is on your list of things to blog about. You should also add the feeds for your favorite headline news sites to your reader to stay up-to-date on any late breaking news that you can blog about as well. Look at the options that are available for your blog software or service. Take advantage of any option that will save you time, such as pinging services, filtering certain words, or blocking certain domain - spammers hit blogs often, and removing all that spam takes time. Avoid this by blocking them in advance. Most blogging software and services already have lists of the spammer's domains, and you can automatically block them with the push of a button. You can also send pings to services such as weblog and Feedster through Pingoat (www.Pingoat.com) in less than one minute after you update your blog.

Eight (8) Best Ad Networks For New Bloggers (with Fast Approval) in 2018

Eight (8) Best Ad Networks For New Bloggers (with Fast Approval) in 2018

Are you a new blogger & looking for an ad network which lets you monetize your new & low-traffic blog?

Welcome to Guide Tricks this article is actually written for small and new bloggers this post will be very interested to you. Today, you will be learning about eight best advertising networks that are very friendly to new bloggers and I am very sure the work very effectively.


AdSense is clearly and the best popular ads network because of its quality, but the major problem is getting AdSense approval. Even though you are a professional blogger and you run your blog for almost a year it’s very difficult to get approval due to their strong policy sometimes is just a lucky. Unique content is not the only factor AdSense Team consider when approving sites. There are many other factors AdSense team wants to see before giving your site the thumbs up. Small blogs usually found it difficult to get AdSense approval, so I have found several other good ad networks for new bloggers and I am sure you will like them. At the same time, there are many other ad networks in the industry. But not all of these ad networks are good and trusted. They may end up cheating bloggers by refusing to pay even when the minimum payout is reached like Effective ads.


Yllix

http://guidetricks.blogspot.com/2017/09/how-to-make-money-from-blogging.html
  Yllix is one of the best advertising media site like as Google AdSense. Yllix is familiar by the name of YLLIX Media. This site is very new, but looks very professional, anyone can use this site for money making online. Use Yllix site and boost up your online earning very quickly. Actually this site is the best alternative of google AdSense. Yllix inaugurate there advertising business in October 2012. You can use this site as a publisher and also Advertiser. You can use this advertising media site with all kind of standard Advertising setups like as Banner Ad, PopUp Ad, Layer Ad, Redirect Ad, Prepop Ad, Full page Ad in size like as 300x250, 728x90, 468x60, 120x600, 160x600. The best thing I like with Yllix media is you can withdraw your earning as low as $1 and their payout method is Payza, paypal, the also accept other payment method like payoneer, bank wire but you need to reach atleast $50 for payoner while Bank Wire Must at least $100 or above.

Revenue hits


http://guidetricks.blogspot.com.ng/2017/09/how-to-sign-up-in-revenuehits-affliate.html

Revenuehits unlike other advertising network is a performance based advertising network. It is a CPA based advertising network which pays around $30 in eCPM which helps you make money blogging. It doesn’t matter what kind of website you have, Revenuehits shows ads/offers depending on the traffic brought by publisher rather than advertisers needs. Since Revenuhits is a Geo Targeted and Contextual Ad Network, it adjusts according to the traffic your blog receives rather than you bringing in the traffic an advertiser requires. They have not any $50-$100 payment there sold method. Revenuehits minimum there sold money in $20 only, So when even you touch or cross this $20 marks. You will get your money end of that month and The pay via Paypal, Payoneer & bank transfer.


Propeller Ads


Propellerads is an Internet media company making digital advertising effective and reliable. With global reach across web and mobile channels, Propeller Ads gives publishers the ability to monetize their traffic, while providing advertisers access to a large number of ad places on premium sites of various categories.

They have a plethora of formats when it comes to ads. Direct links, banners, sliding banners, pop-under ads and many more formats.


Propeller ads the have the traditional banner ads like every other network does, they have some very interesting ads that can grow your Revenue substantially. However, Propeller uses a less intrusive technology called On Click Pop Under, which means the ad is only triggered after the user clicks anywhere on your website. With this network you could generate with on-click Pop Under Ads. The average CPM goes from $7 on different GEOS and up to $12 or more on Tier 1 GEOS. Most people struggle to get $7 just with AdSense or similar solutions, and the best part is that you can leave your banner Ads no matter what you’re using and add Propeller to stack your earnings and double your profit. And the pay using payoneer, Payza, webmoneyz and other methods.


Bidvertiser


Bidvertiser is Founded in 2002, is one of the oldest ad networks. They offer a large range of ad formats. The minimum payout of Bidvertiser is $10 via PayPal, $20 via check, and $50 via bank transfer. They also offer a lot of ads format.

Why you need to keep your documents and files online    

 I suggest you keep your files and documents online for the following reasons:

         => To Avoid lost: ones you kept a copy of your file or document online even if the original copy gets lost you can easily download it and reprinting it how so easy.

        => Traveling and interview purpose: for example, you went for interview to another country and you are qualified all the things needed you have but you eventually forget to pick one very simple certificate which you think is very useless and you are told “today is the only day for the interview” and without that certificate you won’t be employ and remember you are qualified for the job so just imagine when and how would you get that certificate???

How To Stop The Cause Of Computer Blue Screen, Slow Downs And Crashes!

How To Stop The Cause Of Computer Blue Screen, Slow Downs And Crashes!

How To Stop The Cause Of Computer Blue Screen, Slow Downs And Crashes!

Wouldn't it be nice to have a computer that really makes slow or clashes over time. Before you go and buy a new computer product try this key maintenance step you can use to put life back into the computer you've already got. Imagine that you start up your pc just to find yourself staring at a blue welcoming screen with white writing, termed "the blue screen of death" by those at Microsoft. So you push the power button to shut it down by force, and when you bring it back up it just crawls. Within a few minutes, it goes back to the blue screen of death.


This really happened to me some days back not me along but a lot of people are facing this challenge I have a question from my friend asking what lead to this problem and what could he do to stop that, I just asked him if he had ever defragmented his pc. he got that "deer in the headlight" look, so I knew he hadn't. Defragmenting his pc, after 3 years of never doing so, took about 14 hours to complete.


One of the main reasons why computers slow down or crash is due to poor maintenance practices. Unfortunately, when you buy a new computer system you don't usually get much instruction on how to maintain it. Poor or no maintenance allows your hard drive to become more and more fragmented which will slow it down over time. To best explain hard drive fragmentation, think of your hard drive as a file cabinet. In this cabinet, there are folders with documents (files) in them. When you need to work on something you open the folder containing the necessary file, pull out what you need and put the folder back. The files go on your desk so you can work on them. Over time certain files don't get put back, or they get put back in the wrong places. When this happens on the hard drive it leads to fragmentation. Think of defragmenting as going through all of the files on your desk, and in the cabinet, and putting them all back in order in the correct folders. Just as staying in this state of inefficiency would lead to a substantial loss in your own productivity, the same thing happens to your computer. Eventually, this even causes crashes because of how disseminated all of the information gets. Disk fragmentation can even shorten the lifespan of your computer because your hard drive works so hard that it wears out faster.





So the one step solution for this problem is to run the defragmenting tool that comes with windows at least once every couple of weeks. Do this by clicking Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, then click Disk Defragmenter. Choose the disk you want to defragment and click the defragment button. Otherwise, you can get software that will automatically keep your disk defragmented, like Diskeeper by Executive Software. Take care of your pc maintenance and you will continue to enjoy the speed you experienced when you first made that investment!
