Class, I'm sure you must have noticed I've not shown up to post for some time now, and truth be told, I've grown weary of posting and need a break. I've come up with a solution for my boredom and laziness. I've hired a substitute blog teacher to come in once a week and post sizzling hot blogging tips for your edification.
No, she's not as HOT as your blondalicious teacher, but believe me, she's spicy and spunky, and I think you'll like her style. Her name is Blondie, the Badass Blogger. And she'll kick your b*** if you get outta line with her. She's been a teacher for many years, and she knows how to deal with naughty students! I filmed her brief introduction, and she made me film it over and over and over. Man, is she a demanding teacher!
I was shocked to discover all the cr** on my computer recently, even with all the housekeeping I do on a daily basis. Something diabolical had attached itself to my 'puter, and it took a long time to get rid of this yukky thing. In the process, I discovered so much MORE to delete. My history. My cache.
Twitter people who don't follow me back. Deleted.
Twitter people who only write, "Updated my Squidoo page." Deleted
Twitter people who promote, promote, promote. Deleted.
Twitter people who only write good night or good morning. Deleted.
Cracking the whip never felt so good. Quite satisfying and juicy.
The same thing happened to blogs which were not updated. Deleted. The bloggers hadn't even bothered to inform me their blog had died, or they had offed or abandoned it. I said a silent prayer for all the blogs who had passed my way and who were now zombified in cyber-land.
There should be an online cemetery for dead blogs, dontcha think? This would be a place where we could go and light a candle or place some flowers on their cyber grave and honor them.
Back to the present--what captures my attention are amusing, creative, and generous bloggers twitter-ers, and plurkers.
Class, I've been doing a lot of thinking about JOBS as of late. And I'd like to share three ways you MIGHT be able to make some money through the blog world.
Since so many people have lost their jobs in the economic downturn in America and are now out of work, they're seeking new employment and/or ways to create income.
If you're strapped for cash, you may have considered making an adult movie such as the characters in the new movie, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno".
Some of these recently unemployed are EVEN investigating blogging to see if there's a way they can make a living through blogging.
Well, I'm here to tell them, fat chance! An adult movie would probably be a better bet.
Not to say money can't EVENTUALLY be earned by blogging if you work your sweet little tushie off! But this will take TIME!
If time isn't on your side and you need monies now, here's three ideas to earn money through the blog world which won't embarrass you someday should your adult movie go viral:
1. Blog flipping--buying and selling deserted blogs 2. Create a blog group in your town/city/area where bloggers get together to critique blogs & help newbie bloggers and one another with their skills and knowledge. Charge for membership or at the door. 3. Create a Blog Bash event where for 24 hours enrolled bloggers would engage in a smackdown. Betting, dirty tricks, psychological gambits, voting, monetary prizes, and power would be involved. It would closely resemble the U.S. political process. This is a sure winner.
