Writing Is The Best Productive Hobby For Me

I like to write and it is my passion. It's my hobby, It's a source of my income - And that's why I term it as an Productive Hobby.

But if we look more precisely, then it would be clear in front of us that writing is a very attractive activity to me. It doens't necessarily mean that it should be yours as well. This is the reason, why I say do what you like the most and as soon as you'll be able to squeeze some profit from it, you'll gain succcess - yea, that's for sure.

Why I think writing is the Best Productive Hobby For All:

Do you like to see movies, read books or travel? Then you can share your knowledge through 'writing' and pass your knowledge to the next generation or the people who are inquisitive to know more about the 'field'.

It's possible to share your knowledge through a-
  • blog
  • book
  • daily newspaper
  • magazine
  • yearly journals
How to make profit from a blog? a book? a magazine? - These questions do not have that much difficult answers as you think.

My suggestion for you is to pactise whatever good hobby you have, write all about them in your diary and publish it in front of the world!

5 Steps To Create An Article Directory Without Knowing Programming In Wordpress!

We all net-users use Article Directory to read and submit articles in order to get various information and backlinks. Within so many thousands of sites and blogs some may not differentiate an Article Directory with other Websites and Blogs. For some quick idea I suggest you to visit Articlesbase and EzineArticles.


Why You Want To Create An Article Directory?

You can create it for various purposes. Firstly the money from monetizing. Secondly, to promote you other blogs. Thirdly, to share information and lastly, be the owner of a huge site.

How to earn money from Article Directories? Its a common question. Answer is simple too. Increase your quantitiy sign up for Google Adsense and gain popularity to earn per impression and click.

5 Steps To Create An Article Directory


#1 - Register a domain : 50% of your company and online success depends on your domain and hosting planning. Choose such a domain that is - 1. easy to remember -  2. easy to pronounce - 3. as short as possible.

#2 Wise Hosting - Always buy secured hosting. Otherwise, you are mostly probably going to be HACKED! I suggest you HostGator. And for this article directory you should better plan how big site you are willing to create and how much you can invest for articles. So take bandwidth accordingly.

#3 Install Wordpress - Installing wordpress is too easy. Look up here and work accordingly. It may take an hour to install if you are here for new and know nearly nothing how these works.

#4 Choosing the right theme (template) - You won't be able to work with a simple theme designed by your baby. Rather go for the Articlesss.com and get the theme. We all thank that site's owner for providing this fantibulous theme.

#5 Write Articles - Make categories, sub categories. And insert minimum five articles to go on. As soon as you have a minimum of 50 unique articles, go for promoting and advertising. And monetize wisely with Adsense and Infolinks (which are the best couples). Also tell your friends, family and known ones to submit and contribute articles.

Some Extra Tips

1. Get the best articles from me in bulk quanitity but in cheap price. Go in Hire Me page.
2. Or, buy an article re-writer from online providers.
3. Buy a fascinating theme with more options from here with $99. You may earn more. 


Warnings

1. Don't go for creating the directory without having $100 to invest. Its very risky.
2. Also do not come for creating the directory if you are unable to give enough time.

10 Qualities You Should Have To Survive in the Blogging Battle

Blogging is not for all. In fact 'Everything is not for every body'. In this post, I want to show you all and make you understand that Blogging Is For You or not.

So for this, firstly making you acquainted with the 10 Qualities would be definitely a wise doing. You should go through serially and look that each and every quality is inside you or not. If you find that a single one is missing, then Blogging is not for you, rather I suggest you Data Entry from the link left-

10 Qualities Which You MUST Possess To Survice in the Blogging Tussle


1. Believe yourself: You will require to believe in yourself. You will NEED to show off excessively to your readers. And have a tendency to speak that "What I say is correct". This quality helps to get more loyal readers.

2. To know what you don't know: Have you ever tried to tell about something you don't know full? While blogging, it should be clear from your writing style that, what you write - you are confident. And the tips you give are proved. This way your affiliate income may have a chance to increase at a great extent.

3. Be Social: Always keep in touch with your readers and similar bloggers. When  their help will be required to you, You don't know.

4. Understand yourself: Most of the guys have an enquiry : What will I blog about? To this, I like to say that 'Unless you get yourself the answer of this question, you aren't a blogger yet in real sense'. So self understanding is necessary otherwise belief in yourself is not going to develop in your mind.


5. Idea inventive capability: Make sure that you love your job and you aren't only doing it for MONEY. This way, you will get several ideas to keep up blogging.

6. Better Typing Speed And Quick Thought: Be quick on updating your blog. Who knows? Maybe, a dozen of people are waiting for your next post.

7. A Blogger=Author: Always keep it in mind. So keep a stylish english and no mistakes in spelling and grammar. So your readers get fun and don't become bored. You are not here to write hundreds of dumb posts only; rather some qualitiful ones.

8. Doesn't like to depend on others: Blogging is a kind of independent writing. You should not depend on other's content even with money. Write yourself and customize yourself with easy Wordpress or Blogger platform. Many people think that they will succeed by buying content. In most times this thought is totally valueless.

9. Be 100% Unique: If you have a tendency to be 100% unique all time, you will surely succeed in the journey whether soon or later.


10. Patience is the only key: If you are an impatient man or something like that, do not come to this holy Blogging world. Look at me, I blog around 2 years and earn a good deal of money but I am not a Darren Rowse or John Chow yet. It takes time....time....and time....

    15 Ways To Receive More Comments In Your Blog

    It is a very common phenomenon that new bloggers are tired of writing content more and more without a single comment. Today I am writing a post with 15 Techniques which may help you to increase your comment amount to a high extent. But make sure that you apply all the techniques step by step.

    1. Make a relation with new visitors: New visitors will obviously have a hard time to understand what you provide and how to get the most from it. You can help the new visitors by a quick chat or something like that in this time. Use this service from Woopra .

    2. Reply to each comments you receive: Once you receive a comment from your visitors, reply them even if they do not ask a question. By this another visitor will be interested and subscribe to comments in the blog. This is a good way of getting more comments.
    Copied from here.


    3. Ask some questions inside the content: In your blog post do not forget to ask one or two questions to your audience. But please do not spam the post with a bunch of questions.

    4. Give some value who comment regularly: Keep a widget in your blog with the title 'Top Commentors'. So people will be interested to see their name there with their blog link and photo if possible. Learn from here.

    5. Expose yourself: Try to tell about your bad sides in a friendly manner to your blog readers. This is going to increase your comment quantity. If you are lazy, if you look bad, if you failed to do something share it with your readers. Because people are more interested in other's activities!

    6. Make the process as easy as ABC! : Here, I mean that make your commenting process a bit easier. In Worpress, the bloggers are having a good time in getting comments. But for blogger users, they must cutomize the systems and make easier. For this go to 'Settings' tab and 'Comments' sections to customize. Check the 'anonymous' button to enable comments from all people.

    7. Do not say everything: You do a great research on the post but do not give all the information. Then people won't have any  point to share in the comment box.

    8. Disable the register option: When I find somewhere that I will need to register and then comment, then I normally do not comment in that blog. Because I am a bit lazy and do not want to share my information all day long!

    9. End with a invitation:  When you finish writing your post, then tell your visitors to comment your audience 'Teach me in the comment box' or something like this.

    10. Give your visitors opportunity to edit their comments: Sometimes people make some mistakes in spelling and grammar. If they do not get the right to edit their own comments, then probably you're going to loose some valuable subscribers. For Wordpress users, use the plugin: here.

    11.  Reward with name in the post: When some commentors ask you a question very much relevant to your blog topic and you know a lot about it, then you can reward a post for him. And write that 'Dedicated to (name) .' in the intro.

    12. Make 'Recent Comments' like I did: I placed a widget in the right sidebar titles as Recent Comments. To see your name there, comment me below! You should place the widget to give some additional value to your readers.

    13. Enable 'emoticons': Haven't you seen a smiling face in the comments, yet? When visitors type :), then the the sign automatically turns into a smiling face. When, :(, then it shows that the commentor is sad. These are called emoticons. In most cases, in Wordpress it is automatically enabled. But in blogger you should look for here for a box full of emoticons above the comment.

    14. Enable 'DoFollow' tags: Do you know why nowadays people comment like mad? They comment specially in dofollow blogs to increase their Google Page Rank. If you are interested to give something free to your visitors, then enable that system. If you are hearing new about dofollow, then read the article here. To enable it in blogger, go for here.

    15. Let users make your blog a discussion forum: You can enable threaded reply system in your blog. So if someone comments your blog something wrong, then let another reader reply and correct him.

    These are the systems to get more comments in your blog in a short period of time. If you know some more points, please let me know below.
