Is Blogging Procrastination Killing The Success of Your Blog?


Are you not getting your blogging tasks done as quickly as you would like?

Why did I switch from Commentluv to Disqus comments system?


Blog commenting - I’m a fan of the approach. I love blog commenting mainly for two reasons:

  1. It helps me connect with people in the blogosphere - the connections I establish are genuine, good quality connections - not something that occurs for the sake of a mutual benefit.

Right, now that I love blog commenting a lot, I leave quite some comments on other blogs in my niche. I focus on high quality blogs that [Read more...]

7 Affiliate marketing tips to become a trustworthy affiliate


Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online. There are various benefits to it. One of the major benefits that attracts me is that with affiliate marketing, you don’t need to create a product in order to make sales.

Creating a product is a tedious task (although for some businesses, this cannot be totally avoided). Some bloggers might find it easier especially after they have created more than one product in the past.
