About Blogging Successfully

Filed under: — Carthik @ 3:49 pm

Simon’s Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Afraid To Ask attempts to be a complete round up of essential and practical blogging knowledge.

There are obvious contradictions: Be Original(#19) Vs. Plagiarism is Encouraged(#22), but he probably does not expect to be taken seriously(#4).

I wish he extended (#49) to include padding between items of the list. The current format of the article makes for difficult reading, thus emphasizing (#29)

All said, I spent a long time following the links at the end of the post. Just what you need for a perfect weekend — a long article, and a lot of links that lets you waste more of your time reading up on how to waste time efficiently and effectively :)

Happy reading!

I haven’t got paid in a month, and the pocket is feeling the pinch. Then I got renewal notices for two old domain names I had registered, which is when I thought I probably should help you help me, if you so desire. So this site now has a Paypal “make a donation” button in the menu.

I have made a sum total of Zero dollars through my website and all this work so far, so let’s see if we can change that. On a side note, I tried to donate myself some money, just to test if everything is working fine, and also to see if I can give myself 2 cents ;) , but Paypal told me,”You cannot email money to yourself. Please enter another user’s email address if you would like to send money to someone.
