Online Shopping Advantage

With the all-time high price of gasoline and diesels, most of us are watching our gas consumption very closely. Most of us try our best not to go places unless its necessary, plan the grocery trips to get more items in one visit instead of making multiple trips that are basically flushing the savings away because of the cost of gas that you need to fill your car to get to the store.

The good news is, we have the option to do our shopping online! There are so many online stores that are open 24/7 a week, meaning you can shop whenever you want, at your own time and pace. The great thing about online shopping is that you dont need to use a single gallon in gasoline in your car. Just let your fingers do the clicking of the mouse, and your order will arrive at your door. With online shopping, orders will come to you, and you dont even need to travel to get it.

Online shopping comes very handy specially when you are a busy individual and you have so many task at hand that a trip to the department store and buy yourself new clothes is almost impossible! So take advantage of new technologies and let it work for you. Online shopping has been here for years, been practice by millions and millions of people, and it is here to stay.

What To Blog About

One of the most common challenge that many bloggers face today is what to post about! Blog used to be some kind of a personal diary, where you write about your daily happenings and experiences with friends and family. But since then, blogging evolves more than that. Nowadays, blogs are being utilized to share things that you know and have adequate knowledge of. You can blog about things that you use that work or not work and give people heads up about the products or items. You can use your blog to share your opinions and reviews about anything and everything around you! Blogs are no longer just a personal diary telling everyone what you did from dusk to dawn. Blogs nowadays are more informative and great source of information and perfect for some to do research about particular things.

So if you are one of those bloggers that are struggling to find what topic to talk about, if you have a general blog, then you can choose among almost limitless topics! But if you have very specific blog, which talk mainly about one thing, for example cars or quilting, then you need to be very passionate about this topic and love dealing with it in order for you to come up with postings and reviews related to cars or quilting almost on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Depends on how you setup your blog, as general or specific, that will affect what postings you can do. But even if you have very specific topic in your blog, it should be okey to talk something else, which is related to your original topic, just make sure that you will not detour your audience or readers all the time because they might get totally confused completely. So if you write about cooking, talking about grocery shopping or a farmers market is a related topic and it should be okey to insert these topics for your cooking blog.

If you own or maintain your own blog, the great thing about it is that you have the option to get creative and stylish as you can and you can choose whatever topics works for you bests that you are comfortable writing about. A blog is a center stage for you, with the world as your audience! So your creativity and imagination will play an important rule in how will you handle your blog!

Blog Traffic Could Lead To Success

Most of my blogs are still young and still need enhancements and a lot of promotions to be known and be considered successful. I've been blogging for few months and I realized that updating and promoting blog is not as easy as it sounds. Blog requires a lot of time and effort in order to be successful. If you have a ton of budget for promotion and can pay someone else to do the hard work for you, then that is another story, of course. Most bloggers are self-made bloggers, blogging on their own and maintaining their contents mostly by themselves. For blogs that have good amount of visitors, these blogs success surely didn't happen overnight.

Here are some common ways that most bloggers do in order to improve their rankings and exposure in the world wide web:

Directory Submission. There are plenty of websites that are developed as directories. And with the growing popularity of blogs, a lot of these directories have categories mainly for just blogs. Each blog will be listed in the categories depending on the topic and content of the blog. So if you have a blog, why not submit it to blog directories in order to expose your blog to more audience. There are a lot of internet surfers who rely in categorized directories to find sites that they are interested in because they usually get more accurate and relevant results.

Search Engine Submission. Can you imagine having a blog about lighting, and every time internet surfers will enter the keyword lighting in the search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or MSN, you are on top of the list? If there are one million people type the word lighting in a single day, and your website link is on top of the search engine, then the chances that your link being seen and getting click is very very high, if not extremely high. So it is necessary that your blog will be included in the search engine if you dream of having tons of traffic in your blog or site!

Pay Per Click Advertising. I would like to relate Pay Per Click marketing to the phrase: It takes cash to get cash. If there are so many competing websites that are similar to yours, then you might have to take an extra step to stand out in the crowd, by paying for marketing. Just like traditional advertising, you pay for exposing and displaying your business and companies. With Pay Per Click, companies who offer their services post your links or ads to related websites, and every time a person see your posted ad, click it and go to your website or blog, you pay for such click, so it is like paying every person that enters your gate. A lot of times, Pay Per Click works and give you traffic because your ads will usually be displayed in related websites in mostly noticeable and visible locations of the page.

Easier said than done, but if you work hard enough to achieve at least one of the above methods, you have better chances of gaining traffic in the end, so all the hard work or cost may be worthwhile.

Branding Using Your Name

There are definitely great advantages of using your name as a brand name, and then eventually use it as a domain name for your company website. One obvious advantage is the branding. Everytime you market your brand, you are marketing yourself. The more you market and expose your brand, the more your name become known and familiar to many. With great exposure of your name as a branding, more and more people will likely become familiar with it, and if you have history of great quality products and/or services, then chances are, people who are familiar with your name/brand will likely try and utilize your new products and services as well.

The only main pitfall of using your name as a branding is that, it will be harder for you to sell your business since you are currently carrying the same name, and if someones else will buy your company or business, then you are more likely to give them the license to use your name as well, if you are selling your business with its current name. Although, the business buyer may change branding or name, but they will have to start from scratch promoting a new brand. When someone will buy your business from you, after purchase, you normally will have less or no longer have any control to the operation and reputation of the company, its operation, and what the company will become. So if you have plan to ever sell your domain name or business later on or in the near future, it would be better if you dont have to sell it with your name as the business name or brand. But if you have no plans to sell your business, then less worry.

Online Business Card That Works Hard

In the offline world, everyone is probably familiar or have seen a business card, one way or the other. Normally a standard business card measures around 2 in x 3.5 in cardboard paper containing your name or business name, contact information, and other data that relates to you or your company.

In the online world, a new way to hand or distribute a business card is EntreCard. Where you will have a space where you can add an image or graphic, a short information regarding your website and what it is all about. And then you will be given a html code that you can post in your site so that other people who already signed up for
Entrecard can drop their Entrecards to yours, to let you know that they were there and you will know where to find them. If you came across any website with EntreCard drop off, then you also have the option to drop off your EntreCard there, so that the site owner will know where to find you.

The great thing about
Entrecard is their point system. You earn point everytime you drop your card. You also earn point when a visitor to your site drops off their card in your EntreCard drop off area. As your points accumulate, you can use these points to buy box ads from other EntreCard owners to invite more traffic to your website. The box ad is your 125x125 EntreCard image which will appear in the EntreCard drop-off area of the particular site where you bought an ad from. Other EntreCard members can also buy ads from you using their points. The more ads you accept to advertise in your website, the more points you earn which in return you can use to buy ads from other EntreCard members. Whatever you do is a win-win-win situation! So why not checkout Entrecard today, to get idea of how it works.

If you are looking to have your EntreCard image
designed and customized, please do not hesitate to contact me too. I do graphics and photos.

NOTE: Entrecard.com was closed later 2012, and is no longer available for blog promotions.

Acceptable Topics For Your Blog

Blogging these days is definitely growing and becoming more and more popular, not only to people who like to write a journal and keep a personal diary of their day to day living and experience, but as well as for several different companies and businesses who realize this new valuable online tool, blogging, that allows them to reach out to more costumers and more people. Gone are the days that blogging is just a diary to write down their day to day personal experiences and family stories, blogging has reach new heights, where its becoming a method of advertising for products and services for some businesses and companies, giving bloggers plenty of opportunity to earn while blogging.

But if you own a blog and want to tap into these growing new way of advertising, by writing articles and postings that are sponsored. It is so easy and tempting to jump in to every opportunity that comes along, and just accept whatever topic comes in your way. If your blog is about travel, or garden, but you came across an opportunity to write about gaming or medical stuff, are you willing to accept such opportunities just to earn some dollars?

I personally think that if you have blog with very specific topics, you should always try to retain that specific topic, and you only accept writing jobs and advertising that are related to your specific topic. If your blog or site is not a general topic, because you originally intended to write certain topic like makeup, or decorating, or animals, then it might not a good idea to add a post there that talk about online gaming, or surgery, etc. If you do this, your blog will lost focus and your unrelated contents may possibly turn off your readers and viewers specially when its totally off-topic. In trying to earn few dollars, you may be slowly harming your blog reputation, by accepting topics that are totally unrelated to what your blog was originally intended for.

For the sake of longer terms, if you want to retain your blog reputation intact the whole time, its good to know the purpose of your blog, what topics are acceptable and you are willing to include in your write ups, without harming your blog or site in the long run.

Why Comment Moderation Is Important

Few years ago, I managed an online forum related to the website that I managed as well, but I ended up discontinuing the forum part of it because of the spammers postings nothing but irrelevant advertising of their products and services, mostly fake rip-off handbags, prescriptions drugs, enhancement products, and more! And some of these postings were obviously done by automatic programs, also known as robotic spammers. And if you don't moderate your comments or guestbook sections of the blog or site, then you could possibly ended up with a lot of these entry junks, which is a huge turn-off for your site visitors and readers. If you cannot control the contents of your site or blog, specially when it comes to all the spams and junks added, then it wont be long when most of your human readers, who wanted to read your entries, will not stay when they have to deal with all kinds of unwanted spams.

So its important that all entries including your guestbook and comment entries must be moderated by a human being to make sure that everything that will be seen in your blog or site is something that you actually want to show to your readers and visitors. You don't want to damage your blog or site reputation due to the dirty works of spammers out there. Keep your site and blog as desirable as always, don't let unwanted postings crawl their way. That's why we have the option to moderate comments and guestbook entries, to have total control of all entries and hopefully keep it that way.

There are several extra measures that you can take to control all comments and entries to new heights like graphic verification, image identification, numerical operations questions, and more. All these require that the postie need to think and see or hear in order to determine the answer to the question or verification, that she/he can type the answer in the space provided to distinguish between what is human and what is automatic program.

Advantage of Having Your Own Domain Name

Do you own a website or a blog but currently don't have a web hosting account? Then you are probably battling whether to get and register your own domain name or not. A hosted blog or website with generic domain name means that you are currently using a blogging platform provided by a blogging company and at the same time use their free server space to store your data and the current URL address of your blog or website is formatted like this: YourDomain.BlahBlahBlahXXXX.com. While, o the other hand, having your own domain name means that you own and register your own URL address for your blog or site that looks like this www.YourDomain.com

So what are the advantages and disadvantages of having your own domain name instead of using the generic URL address? First and for most, i personally think that there is no major disadvantages of having your own domain name, except for the cost of maintaining and keeping the domain name year after year. But regardless of whether you own your domain name or you are using a generic URL address, you are stil going to take time and effort to promote your blog or website, either way. And that is where the main advantage of having your own domain name comes in. If you own your own domain (with format www.YourDomain.com), then you are promoting your own brand and your name. Even if you change or switch from one blogging platform to the next, your domain name will remain the same, and all your time and effort promoting your domain name will not be wasted because you will always have the same domain name that will point to your blog or website, even if you change servers, hosting companies, or software platforms.

The only time that your effort will be wasted completely trying to promote your own domain name is when you decide to change your domain name to another name. If you rename your domain name. then you have to start promoting your new name all over again.

www.DOINGE.com Transition

To all my blog readers and visitors, I would like to let you know that I finally got the domain name running for this blog, DOINGE. Instead of the old one, doinge.blogspot.com, the new domain name for this blog is now www.DOINGE.com The old one still works, and will be automatically forwarded to the new domain, though.

It took me awhile to have the domain name hook up, because my registrar could not figure out my request several times. I finally have it running, hopefully you will the take time to ADD my new domain name www.DOINGE.com in you blogrolls or links too, i would truly appreciate it! Thank you so much and have a wonderful day to you.
