How to Find Blog Post and Article Topic Ideas

I-have-an-ideaToday my main task is to work on a new article pack for PLR Content Market and as I sat down to pick out my article topics I thought the process I use to pick topics might be helpful to bloggers, writers, and PLR providers. So, today’s blog post is a step-by-step of me doing my research and deciding what my articles will be about.

Okay, so the topic for this pack is paper shredders. It was requested by a particular buyer and I’m not sure how much interest there is for it, but he’s a long time customer so I figured I’d take the time to put it together for him.

3 Tips for Getting Back on Track With Your Blog or Online Business

Many of you know I’ve been rather ill lately. I think my headache when on for nearly five days non-stop. I had a fever off and on in there and horrible body aches. It was no fun at all. It was a lot of sleeping and watching Doctor Who on Netflix. (I’m part way through season 2 now.) Now I’ve finally spoken to the doctor and I’m feeling so much better.

Unfortunately I fell pretty behind and when you’ve gotten used to not working it can be really hard to get back into the habit. I’m working on it and wanted to share three things I’m doing to get back on track.

9 Free Must Have WordPress Plugins For New Blog Owners

pluginsSo, you’ve just started your very first self-hosted blog. (If you’re not quite there yet, check out this tutorial.) Now you need to figure out what to do with your fresh WordPress installation.

The main things you’re going to want to think about (besides the content itself) are:

  • Your WP settings.
  • Your theme.
  • Your plugins.
  • Your widgets.

I’ll be covering all of this over the next few days, but first I’m going to share a list of plugins I install on every single WordPress installation I set up (unless I end up getting a paid alternative) and they’re all free.

Steps for Setting Up Your First Self-Hosted Blog

blogI’ve been connecting with a lot of bloggers using Blogger, Weebly, and sites like that to start their blog. I myself started on Blogger. The thing is, a lot of these people are also realizing it’s not too safe to fully depend on a 3rd party website. If you’re going to get serious about making money online, it’s just smarter to set up a self-hosted website.

The main reasons people don’t are:

  • They’re worried it’ll be too complicated.
  • They’re worried it’ll cost too much.

I’m Proud! – My Fiance Builds His First Site and Uses Covert Store Builder

Basic RGBToday I’m super proud. My fiance has been a freelance writer for a while now. In fact, clients pay him more than they pay me. (*insert small sad face here*) Well, today I told him I think he should really consider starting his own blog to earn some affiliate income.

He was goofing around on NameCheap and found a domain that he thought sounded brandable. I heard it and what he thought it would be good for and I told him to go for it. We bought the domain and installed WordPress.

What is the Best Theme For an Amazon Review Site?

I recently wrote about a new Amazon theme called Covert Store Builder. Since then I’ve had a few people asking me which themes they should use for their sites so I wanted to share a bit of insight on the subject and share some of the themes I’d personally recommend.

When I got ready to start my Amazon review site, picking a theme was one of those things I was dreading. There are so many out there, how do you pick?!? I had a list of features I wanted but I couldn’t find any that had them all. After searching for a little while I reminded myself of a very important point…

It may start out feeling like a juggling act, but it gets easier!

It may start out feeling like a juggling act, but it gets easier!

Yesterday I posted a little blurb on my Facebook page about this is a message that needs to be spread far and wide.

I’ll go ahead and quote the post for you.

“When I was mainly a freelance writing I remember my clients would come back all of the time asking for more Amazon reviews. I had a lot of repeat clients but the ones that wanted review articles came back over and over again, often times offering to pay more if I would move them up higher than my other clients.
