Hello. I'm Blogger SEM & SEO.

These days everybody has a blog, but does having a blog make you a blogger? 

Back in the 90's, anybody who was anybody had a pager. In 2010, having a blog must be the cool thing to do. These days it seems like everybody wants to start a blog for the sole-purpose of making money. From potty-training to fixing cars, blogs on just about every topic are springing up all over the world wide web.
But while the blogosphere is getting more and more polluted with blogs, only a fraction of the people setting them up, will make any money at all. What this means is, a large percentage of the people who start a blog to make money, will most likely abandoned it after a couple of months, without making a dime.

Everyone needs to realize, the days are long gone when you could start a blog about "How To Make Money Blogging" and be just one out of a handful on the topic. Nowadays, your blog would be more like one in a million handfuls in that particular niche.

Of coarse there is absolutely nothing wrong with being one in a million, at least that's what my mother always told me. But when it comes to blogging those aren't the best numbers to be playing with.

This is something that people just don't understand. They hear about all of the successful bloggers out there that make a full-time income with their blogs, and they think... how hard can it actually be. Well, it's not as easy as some might think. Trust me, I know.

By the time I made my first dollar blogging, I had already been at it for 3 months and it was anything but steady after that. As of today, I have been blogging for about 2 years now, and even though I'm not making six-figures a year, yet, I enjoy it just as much now as I ever did.

But I consider myself a blogger. See I think that there is a big difference between a blogger and a person that has a blog. And if right now you're sitting there unsure about which category you fit into, read the 2 lists below to see which one best describes you.

How do you know if you're a blogger, well -

You might be a blogger if...
  1. If writing for your blog feels more like a hobby than it does work, you are most likely a blogger.
  2. If the content that you post is original and not stolen from another blog, you might be a blogger.
  3. If you have passion for the topic you are writing about, you are probably a blogger.
  4. If you are posting to your blog at least 3 times a week, you might be a blogger.
  5. If you write for your readers and not for the search engines, yep you guessed it, you're probably a blogger.

Now if these 5 things more or less describe you, congratulations, you fit the description of a blogger. On the other hand, if the list above doesn't sound like you at all, you might want to check out the next 5 descriptions.

You're just one more person with a blog if...

  1. If you have a blog because you thought it would make you popular with the ladies... You should try to get out more, and you're probably just another person with a blog.
  2. If you have a blog because the "get rich quick scheme" that you purchased told you to start one... I hate to tell you this, but you wasted your money and you're just one more sucker with a blog.
  3. If you have a blog to bully and make fun of kids at your high school... You're probably not a very good person and you're just another teen with a blog.
  4. If you started a blog just so you could tell people that you're a blogger... Stop it, because you're just another person with a blog.
  5. If you started blogging because you thought it would be an easy way to make money online... You were dead wrong, and you're just one more person with a blog.

Now, if you find that this second list better describes your situation, congratulations, you own a blog...

But you are probably not a blogger.

Don't get me wrong, there are many people out there that started blogging for all of the wrong reasons and are now successful full-time bloggers. I personally started blogging as a way to drive traffic to my websites, which I used to sell affiliate products.
However, after I got started I soon realized that I had a strong passion for blogging. I now have 2 main blogs, i-Blogger and HCG Diet 411, that I focus all of my energy into because I enjoy it.

You are more likely to succeed at what you are doing, if you enjoy doing it. No matter what it is. If you have a 9 to 5 job that you absolutely hate, you're either going to quit or just work hard enough to not get fired.

Same thing goes for blogging, if you can't stand doing it, you probably won't last. If you do want to start blogging, try to pick a topic that you have an interest in, don't just start writing about something because you think it's a hot niche at the time.

Try to understand, just because you might not be the pioneer of a certain topic that you want to write about, doesn't mean that you can't have a successful blog. If you truly have passion for something, blog about it. Who knows, you might do it better than anyone else out there.

Remember, try to be creative, don't just do what everyone else is doing. This is what can help define you as an individual blogger. Otherwise you might be...

Just one more person with a blog!

So would you say that you're a blogger or just another person who owns a blog?

Have you ever deleted a webpage on your website, or simply changed its location? If so, you may be opening yourself up to a realm of frustration.
All too often, webmasters seem to forget to incorporate an amazing 404 error page. Believe it or not, your 404 error page could be one of the most important of all of your pages.
While most hosting providers make it insanely easy to create an elegant 404 error page, it is even easier to create a beautiful and functional one inside of WordPress with little effort.

Significance of an Amazing 404 Page

The 404 page is a HTTP response code that, in layman’s terms, signifies that the file is missing – the server is connected, but it cannot find the file.
You may be wondering, though, why it matters – what’s the point of it? If the error is displayed to a visitor, they’ll just move on to other parts of the website, right?
No. They will not just move on. They will leave – you don’t have what they’re looking for.

Key Parts of a Great 404 Page

A Brief Description

Depending on your niche, your readers may have no clue what a 404 page is – you need to explain to them what happened. Accurate or not, the message must be carved into their brains.
With the help of my adorable friend Carl, it is easy to convey that the page is missing. Every 404 page is different – some use humor, some are serious, and some are straight out stupid.
The short description of the error is key to keep the visitors around – you want to force the visitors to stay even though they couldn’t find what they wanted instantly. You have to sell it to them.

Suggestions (Smart 404)

Right after your quick description of what went wrong, you need to provide some suggestions to help the visitor along – they need to be directed.
Luckily, there are some amazing plugins available to WordPress users that make this possible:
Smart 404 is an amazing plugin that will literally bring life to your 404 page. Like never before, your 404 page can be relevant to those who receive it.
Picking apart the invalid URL that brings the user to the 404 page, it can give suggestions to other posts, or even redirect the user to the appropriate area.
Should the URL of one most have words that another URL has, it will display the results in a list with the latest occurring first. If only one match is detected, however, it will cut the middleman out and redirect them.
When used in conjunction with Smart 404, SEO Slugs creates a powerful base for shortening URLs.
With these newly shortened (and SEO friendly) URLs, the results of the Smart 404 plugin will be more accurate, while also helping your SEO efforts.

Closing Plea

Uh-oh. No matches were found. Your brief description told the visitor what went wrong, but Smart 404 failed to find a relevant post. What now?
A closing plea, of course! Tell them to go to the homepage (and link it – that goes without saying), or even provide a search bar. Make it easy.
On the bottom of my 404 page, I added a link to the homepage, and referred the viewer to the searchbar on the right. It’s pretty efficient.

What’s on Your 404 Page?

It’s that day of the week again. You hope for a guest post to be pending for review, but there is no such post in existence. You need an idea. Anything. Your readers are demanding content.
You must satisfy them. You search social media. You take a break. You ask people what they want you to write about. You get the idea. You’re all set to get writing, right? Wrong.
Most blog posts generally [for a lack of better words] suck because of one reason – they’re forced. That article you spent three hours writing could have been a thousand times better in forty minutes. You may be wondering how that’s possible.

The Constraints of Forced-Writing

The Causes

You found the idea that you’re going to write about. It’s not the greatest of ideas, but hey, it’s an idea. You sluggishly open WordPress and begin to craft a title and then…
The flow of the creative juices is stopped – you’re brain dead. All too often, this very scenario happens to bloggers. They get caught up in the mindset of a fixed posting schedule that they abide to as if it were the law.
The simple fact of the matter is that if you aren’t passionate about the idea, nothing great will come out of it. Even the greatest of writers will struggle if they aren’t passionate – it’s how the human brain works.

The Result

Nearly three hours after the idea hatched inside of your head, you begin re-reading the article. With a look of disgust resting in your eyes, you quickly skim the words that piled upon one-another.
The result wasn’t great, and you know it. Three hours earned you a very low-quality article that you are positive your audience will think is terrible.
That doesn’t matter to you, though. You need an article. You hit publish.
Forcing your writing is never a good idea. It shows – the quality staggers, and the mood changes. The article quickly dies off. Unique visitors are appalled – they leave. Returning visitors don’t share the article. You provided the article that your schedule demands, but was it worth it?

The Fix

The simple answer is no. It’s never worth it to compromise quality for the quantity. Ever.
The question, therefore, arises – what do we do when we don’t have passion to write an article, or even an idea to base it around? That answer is quiet simple, too – log out of WordPress.
That’s right. I told you to just log out of WordPress. Don’t even bother writing the article. Quiet frankly, it’s better to conserve the idea for a later article when you’re inspired. Although a bit far-fetched, we can easily relate the situation to Apple.
The original Apple iPad was thought-up nearly twenty years before it was created. The iPhone and iPod Touch were released before the iPad. Why was this product of the future withheld? A lack of quality materials.
Steve Jobs knew that the materials weren’t good enough for the product he imaged. Thus, he waited to begin development. Picture an iPad with an even cheaper screen, breaking with just a flick. Perhaps it lost its camera. The processor could have been slower than your computer running Windows 1995.
Things could have been a lot different if it was forced.
