Make Money Blogging In 2017

Make Money Blogging in 2017

Make money blogging.

For the person who:

  • hates traffic
  • enjoys the company of his wife and children more than most
  • does not desire to have someone set his daily priorities for him.
  • looks at those online reports of how no one is coming to save you or give you anything and chuckles
  • hates cubicles

…the idea of learning to make money blogging is a bright light of hope. They understand that they are not their job. Their job does not define them.

A job is how you eat. It is how you take care of your family. Nothing else. To the extent your job defines who you are, you are defined by another human being and not yourself.

So, what is the plan?

The Plan

What Do I Sell?

You can sell:

  1. Your own products if have them or plan to produce them.
  2. Products and services of others you either like and use or think folks will benefit from.
  3. Include Google Adsense and such. Small change but when you blog becomes popular that income can be significant.

How Long Does It Take To Make Money?

First, understand that you are going to have to be patient.  Blogging is planting, like a farmer plants seeds.

You plant at the beginning of spring.

You collect the fruits of your labors as the end of the summer.

Remember that old soap opera, ‘Days of Our Lives?’ Well…

Like seeds in the ground, so also are the blog posts on our websites.

Your First 90 Days

Breaking your year into 90 day segments is a good way to organize your work. It gives you a time frame long enough that you can do some serious work as well as be able to observe the results.

Once you know what you want to do, you decide how far along in the process you feel like you can get in that time period. It is okay if you want to start out with small expectations for your first 90.

That is not because I don’t believe you can accomplish great things; just exactly the opposite.

It is precisely because I believe that you, a human, an offspring of Deity, can accomplish anything that sits within the boundaries of your imagination.

We just want to stretch the perceived boundaries imposed by your imagination. Every 90 days expand your borders a little bit.

You will do this until you realize that the boundaries are set by you.

Then they disappear.

Then you get rich.

Another 90 Day Plan

All the big, six figure+ earners in the online marketing space agree that one can be independent in 90 days. You can make money blogging in your first 90 days. Lots of folks do.

Yes, that is something that is agreed upon. As with all things, the devil is in the details.    Also, let me be clear, overtly so, that there are no guarantees in this or any other business. If there were guarantees, they would pay you minimum wage because they, not you, are taking all the risk.

But, back to making money in your first 90 days. When I got started in this last go round, I make my first $125.00 commission in about three weeks. So, I know without a doubt it can be done because I did it.

I did not even work particularly hard at it. The purchase was made through a blog post I had set up.

You get me? Here is what you are going to do in order to repeat it:

  1. Set up your blog.
  2. Pick something you want to sell.
  3. Write a blog post
  4. Post it.
  5. Promote it.

You do this. People will see your post. Those who:

  • Like what they read
  • Think you can help them
  • Who and find the articles, videos and free training that you provide helpful

will then spend money with you to solve their other problems.

What do you do if your 90 days does not get you to where you want to go?

Make another 90 day plan based on what your learned in your first.

In Conclusion

Is this an oversimplification? Yep.

You will have to develop your own style and understand that as you read, learn, observe and study your own style will emerge. As your style emerges, so, too, will your native audience.

For one of the best courses I have been through on blogging go here.

I bought it. I learned a lot, therefore I am recommending it to you.

How To Make Money Blogging

How To Make Money Blogging

Blogging For Beginners

“How to make money blogging?” is the question the beginner asks trying to discover the path to profitable writing.

Taking a deep breath and relaxing is a good way to shorten your path to quality writing.

Learning how to make money with a blog for beginners is often a journey filled with lots of hard work, late nights and small or none existent paychecks.

Understand top money making blogs do not just slap up some copy with some pictures, a link to a YouTube video and some off handed copy. In order to start pulling in the viewers and sales you provide solutions to problems. Your readers trust you because of this and begin to place orders.

This requires you climb a learning curve. It requires

  1. Writing interesting, engaging, quality posts.
  2. Solving problems for your readers.
  3. Posting regularly so that Google has a reason to keep indexing your website.
  4. Having an SEO strategy that continually builds back links in an organic fashion.

Paying attention to your copy is how you make money.

Solving problems for people who come to your page so that they share your page with their friends is the ultimate solid gold e goal for your posts.

This means what you give away is often of more value that what your competition is selling. Further on in this post I give you several things you can do today that will set you head and shoulders above what most of your competition is doing. Those things prove daily what they are worth to many top earning bloggers.

How Much Money Can You Make Blogging?

How much money can you make blogging? Some bloggers make 7 figures.

A month.

Some bloggers make 7 figures a month.

No clearly, not everyone will. Like everything else on line there are a few who are exceptional and many who try, get tired or bored and quit.

The question that you really want answered is how much money you, yourself, can make. As with everything else that depends on how hard you work and the lengths you go to in order to get the knowledge you need to do it right.

Seven figures is the exception, but hardly a case of there only being two or three who are doing it. It is a growing club, glad to say.

A seriously profitable blog is very much within the grasp of the average person, in my opinion. I say that because lots of blogging sites that pay the mortgage, the car payment or both are not uncommon.

WordPress

To make money WordPress is a must. Again, that is my opinion. All the research I have done indicates that Google’s search spiders love WordPress because it efficiently indexes pages created with it.

Reasons for using WordPress include:

  • Google loves it.
  • Easy to use for the beginner.
  • Wide array of widgets, and add ons to help you customize it.
  • Wide array of SEO and copy writing tools to help you create effective, interesting posts.
  • It is free.
  • Many of the add ons are free as their developers use add ons to demonstrate their coding talents.
  • Largest community of users so you have lots of depth when asking questions.

Ways To Come Up With Content

You begin by asking yourself what you will blog about.

You write about:

  1. Something you know about
  2. Something you learn about so that you can blog about it.

Invest, Learn, Teach

Investing in learning the skills you need to successfuly blog is a given.

By investing in yourself and your knowledge, you are separating yourself from the 99% who ‘wish’ to be successful by becoming someone who does the things the successful blogger does. Learning is how you become an expert to those who have not.

You invest time, money or both into mastering skills and knowledge you do not currently have.

Because you invest, you are able to learn things you don’t currently know. Learning essential skills is how you ensure you are profitable.

Because you have invested time and money to learn new skills, you now write blog posts teaching your readers what you have learned.

This is one way you provide value up front for your readers.

Obviously, you don’t throw everything you know out there for free, but there are more than enough skills sets out there for you to pull them together in convenient form for your readers.

Ask yourself how many free PDFs or PDFs you have taking up space on your hard drive. Each and every one of them represents good information about which you can write and perhaps solve some problem one or more of your readers may have.

Read, Learn, Teach

On your way home, stop off by the local bookstore. Look at the titles on the recent best sellers list for business books. Leaders are readers and you need to so do so. While you are reading make a note of any top ten or so lists it may go over.

Top ten lists are awesome for quick blog posts.

You can do a book review and use any top ten or so lists discussed in the book as a bullet list of things to talk about in your review of the book. You can also just use the list as a jumping off point for a blog post not book related.

In Conclusion

Because you wanted to know how to make money blogging, you invest in learning the skills demonstrated to be needed by successful bloggers.

As a result of learning the skills necessary to do so, you are now able to teach others how to make money blogging.

Due to your teaching others some of the skills needed to be a successful blogger, they begin to trust you.

Folks buy from those they trust, consequently, your readers begin to buy from you.

To check out one of the best blogging courses out there on how to make money blogging, go here and see the Three Minute Expert, Attraction Marketing Edition.

I bought it. I use it. Recommending it to you is one of the easiest things I have done today.

Affiliate Marketing Companies

Affiliate Marketing Companies

Affiliate marketing companies are a dime a dozen. Some pay so little you wonder if they really even want your business. Others pay nice sums on which you can build an income. These latter tend to provide higher quality experiences for their users. They also are companies who are in business for the long haul.

Your mission is to stay away from the center and more towards the quality, long lived and profitable side of that spectrum.

Keep this phrase in mind, too. ‘Residual monthly memberships on interest sites.’

Why Membership Sites?

I cannot speak directly to your interests since we have yet to have a heart to heart but on one thing I am certain. Your ability to steer folks to sites where there is an active community of users who are willing to pay to be a member of that community is key to your success.

Sites who are willing to pay you double digit percentages of their fees, of course. Some of you bohemian types will no doubt grab yourself by the man bun and throw yourself away from the PC in horror at making a good solid profit. That is fine. I understand.

Others will understand that in today’s online market eyeballs and clicks are precious and hard to come by.

Actually getting someone to your site that is

  • interested
  • willing to pay
  • willing to pay every month because their interest is ongoing and not just passing

is worth its weight in gold. It is well worth sharing the wealth with folks who are interested enough in your site and your business to repeatedly invest their time and talents into making your business a core profit line for their business, too.

Their reputation as a marketer of quality products and services is depending on your giving them good and satisfactory service to those they refer to you.

These are the things in the minds of folks with whom you want to do business.

Affiliate Marketing Companies List

A short list of affiliate marketing companies includes:

  1. Amazon
  2. ClickBank
  3. eBay
  4. Commission Junction

These are companies with which I have dealt. Here is a top 20 list.

Just so you know, Amazon and eBay have restrictions that ClickBank does not. Amazon for instance grants you an affiliate link but if your site produces no sales within say, 6 months your link will be inactivated. eBay qualifies its affiliates and many do not qualify.

ClickBank is a lot more lenient. It is the best place for the beginning affiliate marketer or new affiliate marketing company to begin with.

How Do I Find Affiliate Marketing Companies Focused on My Interests?

Companies that offer affiliate marketing programs are all over the place. Many include a link to their affiliate program right at the bottom of their sales pages and marketing emails. Chances are if you have bought a product online, they have an affiliate link.

When you buy something and are happy with it, see if they have an affiliate link. Write a report! Brag about it! Just write it first hand and do your best to keep the passive voice to a minumum. If you don’t know what that is, well, English grammar is beyond the scope of this article. Still, you need to know that keeping passive voice to 10% or less makes for more interesting reading.

The main point is, write a review and link to your affiliate link. You can go back and do the SEO thing later once you learn more about it.

Most Bang for the Buck…or Affiliate Link

Top paying affiliate programs are more difficult to quantify. If something is an easy sell and everyone wants it, chances are your commissions will be low. This is fair; this is business. If on the other hand, they are offering you 75% some might wonder just how good it is.

This is relevant, unless it is irrelevant.

Things you look for when starting down this path include:

  1. the best affiliate marketing programs for beginners
  2. best affiliate programs to make money
  3. best affiliate programs to make money

Your successful hunt for these will include companies, programs and products that speak to your interests because your interests are the things you speak to with passion and conviction. This is what sells.

THE Number One Affiliate Marketing Company for YOU, SPECIFICALLY You

You, Inc., of course. To succeed branding yourself as a ‘go to’ resource is job one. Investing time and energy into making your site fun and interactive will bring people back. Posting new and helpful information several times a week will keep Google and the search engines happy and keep you bouncing in the search results until you get your SEO game on track.

Go here now and watch a free video on the seven things all six figure income earners in the affiliate and network marketing arena do.

There are no exceptions to this rule, either.

Regards,

Affiliate Marketing Companies

Definite Chief Aim

What Is A Definite Chief Aim?

‘Definite Chief Aim’ and its importance is one of the principles of the Law of Success.

Other names for this include Your Major Purpose, Mission Statement and so on.

These days folks tend to talk about goals, too, although seeing the great divide between what they say they want and what they actually do makes it clear that what they call a goal the practical man calls a wish.

Which is to say, it is:

  • What you are working for.
  • Why you want it.
  • How will you achieve it.
  • By what date you will have accomplished these things.

Why Do I Need One?

How can you ever accomplish anything if you don’t a sense or an idea of what it is you want to accomplish?

Back during the dot com boom I made a little money. When it crashed, one of the lessons I personally learned was that if I had:

  1. No debt, no calls on my paycheck
  2. A decent car
  3. Cable and high speed Internet access
  4. A fridge and pantry full of food
  5. If I can lay down on a Friday night in front of a fan and take a nap without worrying about what I have to do Monday

…then I am okay. Hell, more than that. I am happy.

Doesn’t sound like the motivation of a man destined for greatness, does it? Well, that’s as may be, but knowing what makes you happy lets you clear a lot of mental rooms that others set up for you.

Knowing what makes you happy, what you want, lets you examine all the struggles you have been engaged in and evaluate them.  It makes it easier to throw out the trash.

A definite chief aim is a road map. It is the concept, the idea, the center of what drives you. It focuses your energies and activities so that you can see the progressive realization of the things you say you want.

Getting rich is not a definite chief aim. One definition is “a goal, written down, that lays out what you want to accomplish in life; and how you intend to accomplish it.”

Having your definite chief aim well defined, written down, with a time table for its accomplishment and posted where you can see it every day and recite it, morning and evening, is a critical method for reprogramming your mind and strength on achieving that goal.

Any definite chief aim that is deliberately fixed in the mind and held there, with the determination to realize it, finally saturates the subconscious mind until it automatically inflluence the physical action of the body toward the attainment of that goal.

-Napoleon Hill

Definite Chief Aim Example

Here is an example of a definite chief aim that had some teeth.

Bruce Lee

I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward til the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.

Creating YOUR Chief Definite Aim

A path to a working main aim includes you deciding what it is you want. Write it out in clear, detailed, very specific language. Then outline your path to that.

Key Parts of a Definite Chief Aim

  • What you want.
  • What you are willing to give up or give in return to have what you want.
  •  Smaller, in route, goals that will help you achieve your Definite Chief Aim.

Always write in the present tense with power and commitment.

Saying ‘I want’ rather than ‘I will’ leaves room for failure both in actually accomplishing the goal and in your being able to reprogram your mind by verbal repetition of it.

For an in depth review of this subject I am going to recommend you get your own copy of The Law of Success in 16 Lessons.

You can order it from Amazon by going here.

Best Regards,

Definite Chief Aim

Home Based Business Success: Be Determined

What does it take to create home based business success?

Determination

Home based business success is one area where determination is a characteristic that is shared by all. There are no exceptions.

Since it is Monday, the day when we all have to drag ourselves up from sleep and out the door to our jobs, I thought is a good day to provide some quotes on determination.

When we start applying the same level of determination to our businesses as we do to going to our jobs so we can eat, those wheels that will move us to success start to turn. -Tim Singleton

Home based business success stories always start with someone who is determined. Are you?

Determined Quotes

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
Leonardo da Vinci

If your first run, or your 21st run, at home based business success fails, remember what Claire Cook says,

“If plan A doesn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters – 204 if you’re in Japan.”
Claire Cook

Point is, be determined to not stop until you succeed.

I cannot remember the author, but he wrote, “I will either succeed, or I will die. Which one happens first may not be up to me, but those are the only two outcomes I will accept.”

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston S. Churchill

“He that can have patience can have what he will.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“Don’t change your mind just because people are offended; change your mind if you’re wrong.”
Criss Jami

“You will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle.”
Shannon L. Alder

“People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. When you change for the better, the people around you will be inspired to change also….but only after doing their best to make you stop. Live your truth and don’t EVER stop.”
Steve Maraboli

“It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses, we must plant more roses.”
George Eliot

Thinking about starting a home based business but don’t know if now is the right time? Think about this.

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”
Karen Lamb

 

Monday morning is the perfect day to take a few minutes and consider your determination to work from home in a home based business.

Ask yourself how determined are you?

Visualize the freedom you will have to do what needs to be done in your business and then spend the rest of the day being happy, being with your wife and family, being involved in causes you care about.

Best Regards,

Home Based Business Success

Win 10 Upgrade for My Home Based Business PC

Starting my upgrade. All my reading says 4GB is fine for Windows 10.

We will see.

Wish me luck.

Will update this post with the outcome, LOL.

Tim

UPDATE 12:25AM

As upgrades go, I have to say, this was one of the easiest and most problem free, so far.

‘Pleased’ does not begin to cover it.

There was that one hiccup, entirely self-imposed. I tend to like to stick with what I know. Internet Explorer was my browser. I have to support it at work and so I use it at home as well. I am on enough learning curves as it is, thank you very much.

So, I keep clicking on the blue E, thinking that is IE. It keeps saying Edge.

What the hell is Edge?

Clearly, I have regressed to the status of cantankerous old Internet user who does not like change.

Internet Explorer Is Pitiful on Windows 10

Chewing my way down through the file system, I found my beloved, for the moment, Internet Explorer 11.  Finally, I thought, I will be able to do my thing as I like to do my thing.

Then, genius inspiration hit me.

Entering in the phrase ‘What is the best Internet browser for Windows 10?” I got the following link, ‘What’s the best Windows 10 web browser? The benchmarks are in.’

I also got the bad news about Internet Explorer; it sucks on almost every measure running on Windows 10.

Anyways, here is the link. It will also provide you a free guide on’How To Get The Most Out of Windows 10 File Explorer.’

So far, the interface has been fairly easy to navigate. I cannot spell out the differences between 8 and 8.1 and 10. I can only tell you that I thought the both of the first two sucked bogwater and I think I may like 10. I fully admit it may just be that I am in a better mental state to deal with it for whatever reason.

Anyways, I upgraded a DELL Optiplex 7010 with 4GB of RAM and it went like a breeze.

Best Regards,

Lead Generation Ideas

Lead Generation: Your Lifeblood

Lead generation companies want you to think that this subject is hard. They want you to think it is just better to outsource it. By outsource they mean pay for their services.

Perhaps there is some truth to this, but that is the magic of attraction marketing.

Creating quality content that is of benefit to your target market gives them a reason to continue to view your pages.

Do I Really Need to Master Lead Generation?

Yes, you do. You may think you would be okay without it, but you won’t. If you don’t, you leave yourself dependent on others.

Isn’t being independent part of why you are trying to build a home based business?

Lead Generation Techniques: Attraction Marketing

Understand, attraction marketing is a powerful technique. Looking at the number of folks who have mastered it who make 5 and 6 and no doubt soon to be 7 figure monthly incomes I think an argument can be made that it is the technique.

Attraction Marketing

When it comes to lead generation ideas of how to proceed are not in short supply.

I would argue that good ideas are in short supply.

The best way to get up to speed is get educated on the issue.  As you create quality online real estate lead generation becomes less of a concern because as you increase your footprint, you increase your authority.

Ask yourself, “What problems can I solve for my target audience?”

Take each problem and create a resource for it.

To sum up:

  1. Generating leads is the lifeblood of your business.
  2. This subject is not an easy thing for most to master.
  3. It must be mastered for your business to reach its full potention.
  4. Attraction marketing is the best way for a small business to master online lead generation. It is free and mastering it builds skillsets into the business owner for free.
  5. Ask yourself, “What are the problems of my targeted audience?”
  6. Ask, “How can I solved this for them?” or “What do they need from me to solve this?”
  7. Solve the problem.
  8. Create an online resource page showing your solution to their problem.
  9. Distribute the solution through online and social media.

You should go here to learn more about attraction marketing.

Best Regards,

lead generation

Network Marketing Training # 2

Network Marketing Training-When to Pitch?

Network marketing training #2

A couple of up fronts on the issue of when, where and to whom to pitch your business opportunity.

First, understand that the average person wants to be an employee. For me, employment…blessing that it is, can be defined as modern day indentured servitude with the exception that you can choose to switch masters (bosses) any time you like. My reasoning on that is too long for a blog post. Perhaps I will attempt it another day, though.

Anyways…

Step back from the issue of when to pitch your opportunity for a moment. If you are in a situation where you’re not getting the results you want you need to ask yourself whether you are working hard and often enough or if you are possibly pitching too hard and too often.

Too Eager, Too Often

Slowdown and take a beat and remember what you are trying to do, what your mission is.

Remember that the people to whom you are pitching don’t care.

Quit pitching to your family and friends and start creating educational content that is actually helpful. Creating that content will help you create leads, giving you the opportunity to develop a relationship with that lead so that you can determine what that person’s needs are and place yourself in a position to supply a solution to that need.

To summarize:

  1. Slow down. Quit doing busy work and remember to focus on solving problems, educating others, providing value.
  2. Generate a lead.
  3. Connect with that lead.
  4. Determine the need.

Sometimes the need is not your opportunity, whatever it might be. Sometimes something in your product line is exactly what they need. Sometimes they need to be your customer, not in your business.

Customers Rock

There have been some MLM companies who have gotten themselves into a bit of hot water; sadly it happens. Their solution and one that should have been emphasized in the network marketing training provided is the need for customers.

Then again, what passes for network marketing training in many companies is throw them all at the wall and see who sticks.

The products you sell should be able to stand on their own merit and not just as part of a business opportunity.

If you have scorched what is commonly called your warm market, try focusing on product sales rather than just recruitment into the opportunity. Customers rock, they pay retail and generate profits to keep you eating and are monster good sources of referrals for both new customers and distributors for you business.

In order to do this you are going to have to actually know your customer and find out what they need.

Focus on their need, not your quota.

  • Customers buy, putting profits in your pocket.
  • Customers, happy customers, are sources of repeat profits and referrals when you ask for them.
  • Customers tell others about you.  ← This is marketing at its best.
  • Customers rock.

I hope this second installment of what was taught in Wednesday’s free training seminar.

You can sign up to attend here. Remember, it is free and business neutral.

Best Regards,

network marketing training

Home Based Business: No Work!

Home Based Business

We Do The Work For You!

This claim slash promise I see come up from time to time. Especially on late night television when you are psychologically at your most vulnerable.

For only $39.95 you can be free of your job! Listen to what Nancy Neverexisted had to say! Nancy went from dead broke to making $10,000 a month…

Really?

Lord have mercy, do you really think that someone else is going to do all the work for you and just send you a check every so often?

Look, I know some of this marketing stuff is complicated. I also know you have a job, a family and beaucoup other responsibilities.

Well, I cannot promise you an income, but I can

  1. Show you the tools I am using.
  2. Explain why I am using them.
  3. Show you where to get them.

But we are about to get ahead of ourselves here.

Promising To Do The Work For You

Let’s address a few issues up front.

  1. We will do the work for you.
  2. This is easy to do. All you have to do is follow a few instructions.
  3. You can be free in no time at all.

First of all, I am not going to do your work for you.

Second, some of it requires time and energy and sticking to it when you really want to go to sleep. There will be instructions but you may have to have a few dry runs before you get the ‘follow’ part right. I know I did.

Some folks who have concentrated, to the exclusion of all other things, have gotten free in 120 days. These are generally folks for whom the entire universe was aligned. Were I you, I would bank on 2 to 5 years and consider it a short period of time to be free.

Don’t mistake me. I am doing my best to find a shortening of the way that does not involve you or me taking shortcuts. Have not found it yet but hope springs eternal.

Yes, I Want To Learn

Then stay tuned right here my friend. I expect I will be giving you more value than you are buying from lots of other folks.

Best Regards,

Tim anad MaryJane

Blogging Subjects

Blogging Topics List

Blogging topics are all over the place. A trick I learned from one of my mentors is what I now call the ‘Bookstore Top Ten.’

‘The BookStore Top Ten?’

How does that work?

It’s real simple.

Let’s say you are beat from work; you are not quite free yet.  Your brain hears your bed calling, but you can’t come home right now. You have a blog post to create.

So, you stop at the bookstore and walk in. You run your eyes over the most recent releases of anything worthy, say in the business section or the self help section. Find a book that interests you and flip through looking for a top 10 or top whatever list.

“There’s one,” you say. Then you pull out your phone and copy the list.  Then you can purchase the book or not, as you like. Since you are there and the book interested you enough to stop you,  consider purchasing it and adding it to your list. Leaders are readers, as they say.

You get home and whoop, there it is. Your blog post can now be created from using the top ten list as either a post about the top ten or use the top ten to inspire you .  It is a simple thing, I know, but it will keep you on the track when you get bogged down.

A Quickie Blog Topic

When I began my research on this issue, I typed ‘blog topics’ into Google. Here are the related searches it listed after the pages.

  • blog topics list
  • personal blog topics
  • personal blog post ideas
  • popular blog ideas
  • fun blog topics
  • top blogging subjects
