Beat Blog Fatigue In 5 Easy Steps

"This is a Guest post from the Profitable Productive Blogging Blog or also known as As I pointed out in a previous post, I have limited Internet access which in turn limits my time for posting, reading and, just being productive all together. Ironically enough Cman decided to give me some material explaining ways to beat blog fatigue. When I regain full access I will definitely put these tips into affect."

How many times have you been busy with your job, spouse, kids, home duties, hobbies, community obligations or whatever else occupies your daily waking hours and just didn't feel like blogging. Well here are 5 quick tips to help you overcome that blog fatigue.

  1. Post a link list article. Have you read some good articles recently? Put together a list of the best of what you have been reading. This style of post is quick and easy to put together and is also a great way to build relationships with other bloggers. Contact the authors of the articles you are linking to and let them know they have been featured. You never know you just might get some return "linkage."

  2. Read and Cross-link old posts. This is something you should do periodically anyway, but it is also great to do when you are running out of ideas. I have found that through this process I always get new ideas for articles. Take the time to put some links to some of your newer content in older related content. This will also help in finding some other related articles and chances for linking to the older posts.

  3. Recycle an old post. Now if you have read over your old posts and done some cross-linking and still haven't found some new inspiration, then this is a great idea. The key is to pull from posts about 3 months old, and don't just leave it the same way. Re-work it a bit. Add a new picture element, change the title, add some links, update with some recent experiences, but don't just leave it the same.

  4. Give Your Blog a mini makeover. You don't need to change your template or anything drastic. Little tweaks can make a big difference. Change some colors around, add a new widget or plugin. Things like this can help break through the blog boredom. If you feel your blog is looking better it helps motivate you to produce.

  5. Write a review. I know for me that sometimes even when I'm not inspired to write something I can still review a money making program, affiliate program, or another blog. Pick a smaller blog, someone who has commented on your blog, or added you to their technorati faves, someone that is connected to your blog in some way and has their own blog. I'm sure they wouldn't mind a free review. Of course you will need to probably make it at least neutral :) to positive. Don't blast another blog that isn't nice! If you don't have another blog to review write one about an affiliate program you are involved in, or a money making opportunity you have been successful at. Reviews are simply your thoughts and feelings on and impressions of something and so are fairly easy to do even during times of blog fatigue.

There you go! Now go break of your slump and get back into your blogging groove. Do one of these suggestions each day for 5 days and I am sure it will help. This article is the third installment in Cman's "5 Easy Steps" series. Read the other great articles Feed Failure in 5 Easy Steps and Feed Success in 5 Easy Steps.

Later all and have a Profitable Productive Blogging day

My brief absence from making money online

I have been gone for a little while now because I'm just coming home. Things are a little crazy and I don't have regular Internet access right now. I had a few things in the works before all this but did not have the time to finish them. I will return very soon with my regular posting. Until then this blog may seem a little dry but, remember the beauty of making money online is that you don't have to be here to keep making money. I foresee myself being set up and ready to go by the beginning of next month. I'll see everyone around and thanks for stopping by.

Posts Far and Few Between

Trying to blog while in the busiest of conditions can be tough. As of late I have been having trouble getting the chance to post any articles for my blog and most important my readers. It can be hard at times to keep a blog in tip top shape. You need to constantly improve your blog or else it does nothing for you and you end up making no money online. Here are a few struggles I have been having lately and what I could have done to prevent this from happening to me.

1. No Time-Lately I have been very busy at work which leaves with hardly any time to use a computer.

2. Waisting Time-When I finally get a chance to sit down, I usally kill time by reading other blogs.

3. Writers Block-When it come time for me to write something I have trouble getting it out because I'm usally exhausted from the days work.

These are some things I should have done to counter my problems before they came about.

1. Plan Ahead-I should have planned ahead of time. Writing future posts for the time I knew I would be busy.

2. Work for me-I should have been working on my blog instead of browsing the internet when I had some down time.

3.Details-Remember its the little things that count

Basically if I would have planned a little further in advance I wouldn't be in this jam I'm in now. So plan ahead and your posts will not be far and few between.

Having someone to help you is another good idea. Wether it be a friend, spouse, or a internet partner. I wrote a post on this earlier entitled Blogging with Partners. Well I hope all of you can learn from my mistakes and I know many bloggers have this happen to them and it will proboly continue to happen.

Advertise with Us

I set up an Advertising page on my blog the other day. I know some of you may think it's too early to get sponsors on such a young blog. Well I'm doing it anyway. No harm, No foul. This is one of the best ways to make money online once you have a well known site. Advertisers put their links or banners on your site and you get paid. You can use sites like Text Link Ads to sell the spots on your site. I'm cutting out the middle man so my rates are extremely low. If you would like to see some stats and figures go to my Advertisement page. If you would like to take advantage of one of these limited time offers just drop me a line.

Blogging with Partners

I do not work with anyone on my blog but, many people do have partners. I personally think it's a fantastic idea. This gives you two opinions on your posts, blog, and direction. Two heads are better than one. Having someone just to help can cut down on the amount of time you spend online. You could have a girlfriend or spouse just comment on other blogs for you or submit your blog to directories. While he or she works on your promotion and back links you can worry about quality content for you articles. Also a partner can proof read you articles for spelling, grammar or, just any improvements all over. It would be nice to have someone who could also write posts. This could dramatically improve the quality of your blog because you now have two views expressed on your blog and twice as many posts.

Well what about the money? I guess if it was a girlfriend or something you could work something out between the two of you. If it's an Internet partner I would suggest working out all the details beforehand. Some things you might want to discuss is money, ownership and, work. You will probably want to split the profits 50/50 but that could be a problem depending on who believes they have done more. Ownership of the site is another thing. If one wanted to leave, who gets the site? The amount of work should be outlined to. How much is to be expected out of the individuals. These are all things to consider when picking up a full time partner.

All this planning is probably why a lot of people don't blog in teams or with partners. Most blogs will occasionally have guest posts which sometime benefits both blogs if the traffic is right. Having a guest post doesn't make you partners. It's more just like a back link than anything else.
I believe having a blogging partner would be great if you could find someone dedicated and trustworthy. Also they would have to be like minded and headed in the same direction as you. I would like to have a partner to blog with because it would relieve some pressure but it might also add a little. I would be pressured to make posts and make them better as to not let partner down. I think that's a good thing though.

Well that's my opinion on blogging with partners. hope you all enjoyed it. If anyone has any experience with blogging in a team or having a partner, please share your experience.

$100 Guess

Well a fellow blogger has announced a contest he is having to guess what his nickname stands for. I have been reading his blog, profitable productive blogging, for some time now and honestly never stopped to think what the "C" in cmanlong could stand for. Well now he is offering a $100 to whoever can guess what the meaning to it is. Honestly I have no idea what it could be but even if no one gets it right he is going to randomly draw 5 names from all the losers and award them $20 each for giving it a go anyway. This contest is a bit of a shoot in the dark but it also has the best prize out there, which is cold hard cash. No trinkets or useless stuff. Money is what I like to win. So without anymore delay here is my guess. I would think that the "C" would have to stand for "computer". That's it computermanlong. Well that's my guess and you can't have it. If you would like to guess what the "C" stands for head on over and check out the contest, What the F does the C stand for 4

Top Tips to Work From Home

Who hasn’t thought of working from home? We have all had that dream at some time. Usually you just want to make some extra cash with chance to become successful enough to quit your job and work from home all the time or the dream of making it big and being wealthy.

With the maturity of the Internet, building a home based Internet business is becoming a reality for many people. However there is something you should know before you start on your exciting journey to a new life.

I have learned a variety of things on my journey to making the Internet work for me. In the beginning it was hard, just like anything else that is worth having is hard to make work. So I thought I would share some tips that I believe are to the up most importance to making money online.

Get organised.
You are setting up a business, so you really need to be organised. Ideally set aside a room as your office. Stock it with all the items you need. Computer and printer are obvious! However think about stationary and filing. you could use a whiteboard next to your PC which you could use to write important to do’s. Here is a great article written by the pro blogger on using a binder for organization.

Be disciplined.
It’s easy to get side tracked working from home. There are so many other things that attract your attention. Stay focused on you blog or website. I have often found myself spending way to much time browsing the Internet and reading forums. This is not a bad thing, just limit the amount of time your doing it. It’s easy to find a whole day go by and you have done nothing to improve your own site, so stay focused on your business. It’s another good reason for allocating a room as an office. You can shut the door and really focus on your Internet business.

Family and Friends
If you work at home, it’s easy for Family and Friends to think you are available for other things. “As you are at home today, can you pick up the shopping” etc. It can be really frustrating how working from home can be seen as not a “proper” job. Keep to strict business hours and spend the time working on your Internet business. If you waste that time you will just reinforce any prejudices that you are not really doing a proper job. This is especially important if you are also working a job which most people have to do at first. Set aside a couple hours and get done what you need to for your web site.

Getting your website noticed
This takes time When building a home based Internet business you need to accept that getting noticed by the search engines can take months, especially if you are using a new domain. Using Pay per Click can get immediate results but if can be costly if you get it wrong. Don't give up and keep plugging away. You will see result eventually. Most people give up too soon because they thought it was a quick way to get rich. Making money online is not a get rich quick plan. It takes time and patience and it will slowly build into a profitable business.

Learn about keywords
Keywords are king. If you are not using keywords properly on your website then you are in serious trouble. Get keywords right and you will sail ahead of the competition. A well optimised website using the right keywords for your Internet business will reward you time and time again. Be sure to use proper targeted keywords in your website in the hopes of being ranked #1 in Google for relevant content.

Do it yourself Optimisation
There are many companies offering optimisation services. This might be ideal if you really don’t have the time or the inclination. However it can cost you some serious money and it’s not always successful. There are quite a few so called “experts” who are talking a lot of rubbish. Optimising your website really is easy. You can do it yourself and once you’ve learn the tricks you really are the best person to do it. You know your business. You know your customers and so you know what words they are likely to use to find you. Use all the free tools that the Internet provides and you will find your self getting ahead.

And finally Above all enjoy the journey. Enjoy building a home based Internet business. In the beginning you need to do it because you want to. The money will come later. Give it time, patience and dedication and you will be successful at making money online.

The Jackal Strikes Again!

The Jackal is the creator of the work at home manifesto. I previously wrote a short review on the work at home manifesto in a previous post entitled the Work at Home Manifesto Review. I'm retouching on the subject because I feel that many people are missing out on the opportunity to take advantage of this program. Originally he was only offering a 7 day trial for only a $1 down which you get back if you decided not to proceed with the program. Now the Jackal is offering a 60 money back guarantee for only a $1. You still get the dollar back if you decide not to go on with his program. If you decide to continue with the work at home manifesto you will continue to have full membership for life with a one time payment of $49. That's just one payment. Not monthly like some gurus might charge. Now I say for a $1 you have 60 days to determine whether or not you would like to stay with the jackals program. If not you can simply send him an e-mail an cancel your subscription. If you would like to cancel at any time just go to and let him know. It's just that easy.
Now some of you might be wondering what you get for a $1. Well you get full access to the work at home manifesto. It's an ongoing process of quality information being feed to you. Everything you will ever need to know from where to start and how to get to the top. I read something new everyday and apply something new to my own businesses. You will find tons of triggers that will set your ideas off in the right direction and help you move them to the top. Don't have ideas, well don't worry, the Jackal can help. I believe this to be a very productive and profitable system that can work for almost anyone. I say almost because nothing is handed to you on a silver platter. You still have to use and implement the Work at Home Manifesto so that you can work from home full time and make a living making money online. I am serious though. If I could make this work for me than you can make it work for you. And I personally will tell you that the information provided is quality stuff and the work at manifesto is not a scam.
Is it worth a buck to you to see if the work-at-home-manifesto is all it's cracked up to be? And, if it works for you and puts kitchen-table wealth within your reach, do you think it's well worth the $49.00 for lifetime access to it? I think so. The hundreds of insiders already privy to the info inside the Manifesto certainly think so too (not to mention those trying to keep this info private and force it back underground).
