Picture yourself as a pimply teenager working for minimum wage at the nearby fast food joint. You stand at the counter, with your feet aching, and take orders during your 4 hour shift. The only thing you’re thinking about is getting out of there and hopefully snagging a bag of fries on the way out. You do just what you’re asked to do and nothing more.
My personal preference for a blogging platform is WordPress as it is easy to set up, easily modifiable and has almost limitless themes and plugins to make your blog more aesthetic, functional and almost 100% automated. Some plugins are essential tools to make your blog site more visible and profitable.
In order to make money blogging and look like a professional doing it, prospects will not accept bad grammar or massive spelling errors. I suggest writing your blog post, then letting it set for 24 hours, come back, read it again and you will easily find errors that were overlooked on the first reading.
In most cases, you do not want to get in your visitors way. However, if you are hoping to earn AdSense revenue, you need to get directly in their path in order to get your ads noticed – and clicked on. This is why so many people opt to put their AdSense code directly in their entries. When it comes to blogs that is usually where a visitors attention is focused – on the entries. Try putting the AdSense code directly in the middle of each post blogging for fun using one of the rectangular boxes. Just make sure that you tell your visitors that the post is continued below.
Depending on the time of day, and since this is a new blog, the article should publish very quickly. You’ll see a message like “100% complete”. Voila, you now have a live blog. You can click on the “View site” tab to have a look.
