How to Blog Anywhere, Anytime

There’s a big world out there (no, not online – the other one). If we’re spending all our time at a desk we’re missing out on the very experiences that can catapult our writing into new realms of wonderfulness. Experiences make us richer writers, and the best bloggers are looking for ways to get out there and bring the blogging with them. This article can help. Are You Managing One Blog or Many? Before looking for the right solutions, you have to carefully define the problems. Bloggers posting to multiple blogs have different options than those who only need to post to one. If you’re a single blog person, the apps developed by your own blogging platform are likely to be your best bet. Look for WordPress, Blogger and Live Journal apps. Most of the mobile versions work very much like the desktop versions, Live Journal and Tumblr in particular. Bloggers keeping up with many blogs on the go need more powerful apps, such as CellSpin. This free app allows you to post to WordPress as well as LinkedIn, Blogger, Live Journal and also give you the option to email the post simultaneously. It can replace several apps, freeing up memory in the mobile device and making posting quicker and more convenient. Bloggers who only want to share with a few people also have mobile options. Posterous Spaces lets you manage Spaces, which work a lot like Tumblr’s Tumblelogs. You can upload a photo or an entire group of photos and share videos or just a text post. Users can create one Space or many and create groups so...

With Blogging, Consistency is King

We've all heard the adage "Content is King". And in a lot of ways it make sense. We live in a world that has a voracious appetite for content. Social Media needs constant content to keep people engaged. Google needs content to have something to analyze and rank in its search engine. Companies need content to attract new customers and to establish authority and trust with their visitors. That's a great argument for content's supremacy. But here's the counterpoint. Any single piece of content, while important, will eventually fade away with time. Consistent content is key. Regular, predictable content is what helps Google, will drive repeat visitors and will keep you visible on social media. Too many companies, solopreneurs or hobbyists lose the battle with consistency and lose all of the benefits that come with content production. How to Blog Consistently Here are 6 ways to improve your consistency and gain the business benefits of producing regular blog content: 1) Keep To A Schedule Set a realistic schedule and keep to it. Don't set an idealistic schedule that will demotivate you (e.g. twice/week, once/week). In a company, have someone on point to make sure the schedule is followed. 2) Use Content Curation Techniques In addition to original content, share some of the amazing content available out there by curating great content. Curationsoft is one tool to help you find recent blog posts, videos or pictures by keyword and insert them into your post. 3) Use Blog Writing Formulas How-to posts and list posts are consistently strong post types that resonate with readers and get lots of shares in social...

8 Methods for a Successful Blog

There are several attributes that go into making a blog successful. Although the majority of these are related to the content of the blog itself, there are various methods offsite that can improve success. As long as the most important methods are tended to, nearly anyone can build and operate a successful blog. 1. Blogging System - Choose a method of blogging that best suits you. WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems for blogging. With a quick installation, you can be adding content in minutes. 2. Keep the Niche - The most successful blogs are those that keep to one category style. For instance, if your blog is about space exploration, then you wouldn't want to write a review about the local diner you ate at the night before. 3. Knowledge - Although there are successful blogs on the Internet by professionals in his or her field of study, there are some popular blogs developed by people who are discovering the field for the first time. These can become humorous by design of the blogger as they progress. 4. Opinionated - As opposed to a website article that is based around fact and precise information, blogs are expected to be from a first-person point of view. Personal opinions on the subject matter give the blog life as opposed to an article. 5. Regular Content - Keeping with a regular flow of content could help keep a regular flow of visitors. For those interested in reading blogs, constant postings make the reader feel like they're in the loop of information. 6. Visitors - Know what your...

All The Women In Social Media Universe In This One Post

You would think I was a feminist with this, that and the other post, featuring women in my posts. What can I say, I love the girls and getting the content is like shopping for bananas, crazy easy.

What's a grown young man like me to do? Of course, I had to sign up and take the pledge to touch some boobs. And damnit, so should you. Women Worldwide Every Woman, Every Child, A United Nations Initiative "... an unprecedented global movement, spearheaded by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, to mobilize and intensify global action to improve the health of women and children around the world." Yea, the United Nations clearly sees something in being ahead of the women-in-mainstream wave. Unless ... now that the power's shifting ... the Secretary-General is actually being held against his will and Mrs. Secretary General is running the show. Hmm ...
