Here is my new blog

Posted on Tuesday, March 27th 2007 11:27 pm by menj in Offbeat

From the guy that brought to you Critical Thoughts and Bismika Allahuma, here I am again expanding my little online Caliphate and writing in a niche that has nothing whatsoever to do with whatever I’ve blogged about in the past. Like the name says, this blog will be about blogging and how you can earn money from blogging. Yeah, I know that there is already an influx of such blogs out there, so how do I distinguish myself from the mix? Well, I won’t be telling you how to make money from blogging. I will be demonstrating what I did and am doing to earn my living from blogging.

Since turning to problogging in November 2006, I have been making quite a good sum and have not regretted it since. Everyone can earn money from their blogs but how you go about doing it is a different matter. You can do it the hard way (like I did) or the easy way. The hard way would be visiting every blog and discussion forum there is out there and spend some time reading all about blogging and how to make money from blogging. The easy way would be to simply visit this blog and read the posts here as I share my experiences.

So what is it going to be? You decide.

      I need help with naming my new blog.

      Here’s some info. about me

      My name/nickname(s): Juan, Alejandro, Fransisco, Alex, Alejo, Lage,

      My hobbies (the topic): Metalcasting, welding, general metalworking, and all the other happenings in my shop…
      I also like photography, video editing, baking, camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, ceramics, chemistry, paintball, airsoft, among others, but the emphasis is going to be on the former rather than the latter topics.

      Well I thought of some titles for my new blog… here are some of ideas you can tell me which one is the best

      *mysterious future
      *basic ideas
      *basic thoughts
      *journey to the thoughts
      *my small adventures
      *my critic life
      *Future thinking
      *My thoughts

      I’m not making a blog of talking about my life its more on my thought about life it self. i don’t know exactly what I may talk about but its worth a shot… I was wondering if someone can give me a better title.
      something that is short (or long) but still catchy…

      P.S: don’t tell me to do it myself or say some ignorant answer about what I wrote seriously!!!

      She’s got a blog about luxury brands of lingerie (not Victoria’s Secret LOL) but she’s too busy to blog and she is looking for women who love lingerie with posting new topics.

      I started writing a blog about the college admissions process. What are some ways to get people to notice it? Do you know of any other related blogs that I can trade links with that might attract readers?

      Rawrrrr: fair enough. I happen to like to sketch interesting buildings. Your blog is a perfect source of material.

      I have a blog with blogger. I have registered my blog using a gmail account. Now, I want to use a new gmail account and I wanted to import my whole blog along with the posts and comments to this new gmail id.

      Please tell me, is this possible and how can it be done?

      I’m planning to write a literature blog, and I want to get as much readers as possible, even those who don’t like books much, to be able to encourage them to read. Suggestions? No bashing please!

      Actually, I’m a blog starter. I just want more people to visit my blog to make me a popular blog. I’m capable of writing, and I know writing skill is a must. But is there any other way to make my blog more popular?

      When another site links to my blog it sometimes shows up as a comment that looks like this:

      “[…] the rest here: New Car Negotiating Tips: Single Woman Going Alone to Buy a Ca… Posted in negotiate | Tags: approval, debt-settlement, free-copy, getting-the-approval, […]”

      Can anyone tell me what this is about?

      Is it a type of spam – sometimes WordPress puts them in the spam folder?

      Can I delete the comment safely?

      I have a legacy site for 15 years which is basically a large collection of articles, organized into a tree of folders. Over time, I accumulated back links from a lot of other sites, and they are obviously conventional links like
      mydomain.comsubject1article1.html

      Now, I’m about to launch my new website which will still use the SAME old domain name. The new site is built on a custom WordPress theme and is blog-driven. All my new content will be frequent short blog posts, as opposed to infrequent long articles of the past. And I can re-publish my old articles as blog posts, too. So far so good.

      Here comes the question. I do not want to drop my old back links dead. It will hurt my rankings and it will prevent potential visitors from reaching me if they come across one of those old back links. My plan is:
      – do the normal install of the new website as WordPress theme, with the blog and the new look
      – also copy the old tree of legacy articles into the root directory of the new website, just so the old-fashioned links will still find their target
      – provide NO links from the new blog site to the legacy files, keeping them stealth
      – but on each of the legacy articles, include a notice “you have reached my discontinued legacy site, click here to visit my new site”

      Basically, I want to install a hidden closet on the new site that current visitors will not see, but my old supporters who “know” about the hidden closet will still be able to access.

      Question 1: will it work, as far as preserving old links, or will WordPress somehow disable them?
      Question 2: will I risk damaging WordPress theme by installing some “foreign” legacy files outside the theme?
      Question 3: is there a better solution to my problem?

      Thanks to all the experts!

      I have a blog that’s private, so no one else sees it, but I still want to make it look nice. How can I personalize my blog without fucking it all up?

      So I created a secondary blog off my first one, but I now want my secondary blog to be my personal or my main blog. So that as soon and I sign on the newer blog I made would be my default blog. If that makes any sense… Is there a way to do this?

      Do you blog? Do you blog to advertise items you are selling? I am rather new to the blogging world. I mainly blog to advertise products that I am selling and websites that I am selling on. How do I get traffic to my blog? Do I basically just need to add content? Does my blog get picked up in the search? Any advice on blogging is very much needed.
      Hello, yes I mention it on my twitter account and also my other web-sites.
