Many thanks to Ted Demopoulos for his guest posts this past week. Better late than never, I created a category for Ted's posts so you can easily find and review them. Be sure to read the comments too, as there was some good discussion on his posts Blogging Improves Writing? My Secret and Blogging's Biggest Business Effect.
What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting is an excellent resource. Rather than reading it in sequence, I've been flipping to random chapters to read expert tips. This morning I read Chapter 49: Can I Make Blogging? This is a question Patsi and I almost always get when we do teleclasses about blogging. And Chris Garret of Performancing makes some excellent points:
...money from blogging starts slowly. Significant money will come only months down the line after building traffic, reputation, and reader involvement steadily day by day...Being a professional blogger involves more than just writing. You need to build traffic and get links. You can't assume that people will magically find your blog--you have to help them.
There's tons of great advice in this slim volume and at only $12.89 it's a great investment in your blogging success as well.
Thank you, Ted, for your wonderful contributions to Build a Better Blog!
