One way to get news topics to write about is to set up Google Alerts on the topics you want to write about.  When something exciting comes out, Google will email you about it so that you can write an interesting article about it.

Don’t Always Have Time to Blog – Blog Ahead

Monday, June 28th, 2010

If you are like me, time is a valuable commodity.  Now, with that said, how do you make sure you have time to do your blog at least 5 days a week (Monday through Friday)?

 

What I do is this.  I try to have some blogs done ahead of time.  I have them done and sitting in draft mode waiting to be published.  When I have a day that is crazy, all I have to do is to find 30 seconds to get into the blog’s administrator console and press publish and the blog is published.  So, if you want to make sure your blog goes out everyday always work ahead.

Power of Blog Widgets: Don’t OverUse Blog Widgets – Part 8

Friday, June 25th, 2010

As you can gather from the past group of blogs, there are many widgets that can be added to your blog.  These widgets can add content, they can help you save time, and they can give your blog more features. 

The important point of the blog post today is to tell you not to overuse widgets.  Widgets are tools and enhancements for your blog, but don’t overdue it.  Also, it is important to add widgets that make sense for your blog.  If the widget does not add value to your blog, don’t add it.  So, remember to always be on the lookout for good widgets to incorporate in your blog and remember periodically to check http://www.widgetbox.com .

Power of Blog Widgets: Blog Widget for Posting to Facebook – Part 3

Friday, June 18th, 2010

A good blog widget to use is a Facebook widget.  It allows you to update your Facebook page after posting a blog entry.  Be careful of circular widgets.  A circular widget would be like your blog updating your Facebook page and then having your Facebook page updating your blog.  I have been there, done that, and it is not pretty.  Have your blog as the central control for your postings and you will be fine.
