Keeping a journal can help you with your blogging. What do you want to accomplish with your blog? Do you want to gain more readers? How about get more traffic? These are some of the things that you can write in your journal. First, you should write at the beginning of  your journal that this will be your blogging journal. That way you can stay focused on your blogging goals. Would you like to be a better writer? What niche would you be writing about? How do you get traffic? How much traffic would you like to get? These are all things you can write about in your journal.

Once your blog starts taking off. You can write down how many comments that you received and who left them. Also, in your blogging journal you should write down your progress each month. How many blog post would you like to write a week? One, two, or three. I think it's best to start out with at least once a week. That way you aren't putting too much pressure on yourself and at the same time it's a good time span for your readers to get a new blog post from you.

You can also write in your journal the improvements that you want to make. What could you have done better or what needs to be worked on? This way you won't get bored. There are always things that you can get information. Maybe you want to make money with your blog, learn more about internet marketing or affiliate marketing. These are all goals that should be written down. If you find out about some good websites that can help you with these goals write them down and bookmark them. I made the mistake of not writing down a good website about affiliate marketing and I forgot all about it. I am just now remembering it and it's been a couple of years.

Make sure you take notes on what you are learning from different websites or your favorite bloggers. That way you can go over them later on. You can keep a journal for many of your other interests too, but they should be separate. That way, you can keep all of your thoughts on different topics organized. Keep a mini journal on you at all times. That way you can just jot down all of the good ideas that come to you and save them for later.

Blogging is a lot like keeping a journal instead of your thoughts being private they are public because you are sharing them with the world. Keeping a journal is a lot of fun. It's fun to write down all the things that you would like to do with your blog and all the endless opportunities that you have. Plus, it's nice to be able to look back at how far you have come. You see all the things that at one time you wanted to accomplish and now they are realities. The more you accomplish the more you want to accomplish until you have achieved all of your goals.


Maybe this is your first time keeping a journal. You might like it so much that you may want to keep journals on other interests that you have. Maybe you are an avid reader and you would like to keep a book journal or maybe you would like to monitor your weight by starting a weight loss journal. You might thought you didn't like writing but you may find that you do and you are good at it too. I would like for you to check out,"The Writing Personal Journals" page. If you are new to keeping a journal or want to find different kinds of journals this page has some awesome journals. You want to get started right away on your blogging journal. "The Writing Personal Journals" page will help you find a journal to get you started and it also has some great  tips on the benefits of keeping a journal.

I started using Grovo a couple of months ago. I was searching on Google for some help with mailchimp and I came across their site. I immediately signed up and started taking a lesson. Grovo is an online training company. You can get training for various websites. I consider myself to be very tech savvy. However, with things changing so fast and so many websites coming out each and every day it can be very hard to stay up to date. That's one of the reasons I have been using Grovo.

Even if youare not a tech savvy person you can still use Grovo. The interface is very easy to use. The lessons are given to you on videos. It is a very hands online learning program. After each lesson there is a quiz that you take. If you cannot complete a lesson you can just pick up where you left off. If you score 90% or more on a quiz you can become certified in that course. You can download the certification or post it to your social networks.

You can also set goals for yourself. For instance, if you want to create your own blog they will help you learn to use a variety of tools to help you do so. It's nice to be able to go somewhere online that will help you stay updated an even help you with your online goals. This is also very helpful in helping you stay organized.

There is so much to learn and many times you want to learn quickly. With Grovo you can get the help that you need right now. It is frustrating when you need help and you can't get it right away. Grovo gets you the help that you need right now. You don't have to be searching all over the internet looking at this site and that site for help. All the information that you need is covered in the lessons.

Many businesses use Grovo but even if you are not a business owner you will find it just as helpful. If you are in the online world Grovo is something that I recommend you use. There is an upgrade option called Grovo premium and it costs $9 a month or $99 annually; both plans include a free trial. Group pricing is also available.


Right now, I am taking a lesson for Quora. I didn't know that they had so many features. Many times I learn to use some features but not all. Grovo helps you learn to use all the features so you can really get the full potential out of the sites that you are using. It's fun and helpful all at the same time.

Grovo also recommends sites that they think that you would find helpful and they include: Facebook, Evernote, Wordpress, Tumblr, Twitter, Youtube and many many more! I hear a lot of people online always asking for help for these sites. Now, you can get the help that you need.

There are so many features that this site offers. I can't mention them all here because this blog post will be way too long. You will just have to signup and start using it yourself.



I would like to know if you are already using Grovo and if you are how do you like it? Did you find it helpful as an online resource? Have you recommended it to your online colleagues? Or if you have a business is Grovo what you use for your online training?

Social networks are places where you can socialize with people and share what you like, dislikes, and many other things. However, the most talked about one's are Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. There are many more but today I'm going to talk about five of them that I don't here too much about and they are some very good ones that have lots of features. Before, I get into that I wanted to ask you. What do you consider a good social network for your business? I haven't had much success with Facebook for my business as I use it mostly to keep in contact with family and friends. I know the reason that I haven't had much luck with Facebook as those people are not my target market. I know that I need to be utilizing social networks that can help me find that market for my business.

I have found five of them that I know that are beneficial to my business. They also have lots of features and tools that you can use for your business and to enhance your social experience. I know sometimes it can be a little overwhelming trying to socialize in so many social networks. It can really get exhausting sometimes. You don't have to tell me about it because I already know.

The fight against spam is an ever-going battle. Even if you don't have problems with spam you still want to keep your email organized. When you signup for different newsletters or mailing lists. These can cause your email to become very unorganized and before you know it your email has become very cluttered. Or if you use list builders. We all know that with list builders they send out lots of email continually which can really overtake your email account in a matter of minutes. It can become quite the messy experience.

I know from experience because I have more than one email account. You have different emails for all of your blogs or websites. You have different emails because you want somethings coming here and somethings coming there. It can be quite the headache. If the spammers get a hold of your email than that's all she wrote. It's just a constant battle to keep your email organized and spam free.

That's why I started using viralinbox. I did not realize how powerful this tool is. You can have a main mail box but you can also make boxes for all of your mail subscriptions, newsletters, list builders and anything you need one for. Viralinbox is just like a regular email and you can have everything you have with one such as a signature and address book. If you make a box and you do not need it anymore or if someone is spamming you all you have to do is delete it. An example of a box you can make is myname.subscription@ezvib.com. This is also a list builder too! I have cleaned up the clutter in my email dramatically using viralinbox. I had signed up sometime ago but I never really used it until now. This will do wonders for your business.

ViralinBox comes with a list builder that allows you to build a 5 to 8 levels deep downline, and earn above industry-average commissions of every upgraded referral you make: up to a whopping 55%! You will even earn additional storage space for your emails every time you refer a member, up to an INSANE 50,000 MB of storage space! You will NEVER have to delete an email again!

You can even promote and advertise your business for free!

This is something that anyone doing business online should be using. Doing business online should be easy and using Viralinbox makes it a whole lot easier. Not using Viralinbox! I'm not going to lie! You should be! You already have a yahoo account or gmail account! They don't have the features for your business that Viralinbox does! Viralinbox. Get your own Viralinbox today! Don't be like me and wait too long to start using this great tool! Don't leave here without making your own Viralinbox account.

There are a lot of products on the internet. How do you know which one's are good and which ones are not? That is a very tricky question. You need to be able to decipher what is truly a scam. Many people say they have encountered a scam, when actually they haven't. They may didn't utilize a program correctly. However, you can find out what your needs may or may not be by reading another person's reviews. It's good to be able to find out what another person thought of a program before you purchase it. However, regardless of what someone might say you are going to have to make the final decision.

The problem many people face is where can they find good reviews about internet marketing programs? It's really hard because everyone is selling something and you want a honest review. Am I correct? Most definitely. You want a review from someone just like you. Someone who has actually purchased the program and used it. For better or for worse. There is no reason to be scammed these days. Imreportcard will help you not get scammed. There you can read people's honest reviews. I have utilized this site many times myself.

While you there you can even share your own reviews about different internet marketing programs that you have purchased. Read reviews about not only internet programs but also internet gurus as well. Imreportcard is a site that everyone should know about and utilize. Pass this on to everyone your know such as your blog readers or anyone who is interested in internet marketing. Make Imreportcard your go to site for internet reviews.

This past February Weebly shut down my blog. I had started it in 2009. Everything was going really well. I had written a substantial amount of blog posts. So, you can imagine how I felt when I logged into my Weebly account and I couldn't access it. I frantically contacted Weebly. They reopened it. I was elated. However, this happened several times. Each time it happened they said it was a mistake and it wouldn't happen again. Finally, the last time they told me that they would not be reopening my blog because it was deemed as one of those free money making sites. Anyone could clearly see that my site had lots of quality content. I had spent lots of time on my blog. I did have quite a few advertisements which I had planned to take down anyway if Weebly would have given me the chance. I was furious as anyone would be. I almost lost all of my hard work If it wasn't for me adding my blog to this one blog directory (which I will be writing about in a next blog post). I would of lost everything. Weebly did give me some of my pages back but none of my blog posts. I am a blogger/affiliate marketer I did have some affiliate links in my blog post but it wasn't used overly too much. There were not affiliate links in every blog post that I wrote. I would of thought that Weebly would know what an affiliate marketer was as they have their own affiliate program.

 

I thought it was very unprofessional of Weebly just to shut down my blog like that and not even give me a heads up or allow me to make the necessary adjustments. When I had contacted Weebly they told me to read their TOS rules. In them they basically said that you can't refer any companies that you will be using an referral link and they basically ruled out all network marketing companies.  I felt that was very harsh, because all network marketing companies are not scam and all companies who have a referral link are not scam either. To me, they basically have limited their clientele. It makes it very hard for you to write about anything on your blog especially if you are a network or affiliate marketer. I have seen sites that don't have quality content and they only have advertisements but my blog was not one of them.  My plan was to move to wordpress, but since I had started my blog on Weebly and I liked them. I was planning just to upgrade with them. Boy, would I have been furious if they would of shut down my blog and I was paying! Anyone could clearly see that my blog was not a spam blog as I had written a blog post on what a spam blog was and how to avoid writing one.


Some people look down on using free sites, but I don't because many free sites do allow you to upgrade. Thus, given you the opportunity to have a professional looking site. Many people start out free and than they choose to upgrade later on. Weebly not only lost out on a great blogger:) but future money as well. I don't write this blog post to be vindictive as I really liked Weebly but I think people need to know what could happen to them if they choose to use their blogging service. What I went through with Weebly I wouldn't wish on anyone else. The frustration and continual writing of emails to them about my situation was nonetheless a constant headache. It practically drove me crazy to have to check my blog everyday just to make sure they hadn't shut it down. Which in the long run they did anyway. Well, I've moved on and I must say I am a lot happier and my nerves are much better. So, if you are doing affiliate or network marketing I suggest you do not use Weebly as your blog platform of choice. At least I have given you the heads up that Weebly never gave me.

I have been writing for a website called review stream. So far I have written 3 reviews. They will buy your reviews for $3.55  this. However, the price chart refreshes automatically. I am waiting for my 4th review to be approved. When you write your review make sure it is descriptive but also very opinionated. They really want to know what you think about the product or service that you review. If you would like to be paid $3.55 for your review make sure that you do not put a check in the bulk rate box. If you do you will be paid bulk rate. Bulk rate is the regular rate divided by 5. If the regular rate is $5.00 the bulk rate will be $1.00 Even if you don't click the bulk rate box they still may not accept your review. If they don't accept it for $3.55 you can submit it again and they may purchase it for $1.00.

If you are submitting a review for a particular store or shop make sure you put the location in the location address. Before you submit your review make sure that you don't have any grammatical errors, because they might not accept it if it does. The more people vote on your reviews the more you get paid. You may not republish your reviews that you write for reviewstream on your blog, but they give you a block that you can place on your website or blog so people can read your reviews. However, you don't have to have a website or blog to write reviews for reviewstream.

Reviewstream pays you using paypal and you have to have $50.00 in your account to cash out. All in all I think that reviewstream is a good website. Even if you don't want to write reviews you can go to the site and read the reviews that other people have written. You may find them helpful before you make your next purchase for a particular product Reviewstream is just another way you can make some extra money online.
