    10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job
    Just for fun I recently asked Erin, Now that the kids are in summer school, dont you think its about time you went out andgot yourself a job? I hate seeing you wallow in unemployment for so long. She smiled and said, Wow. I have been unemployed a really long time. Thats weird I like it! Neither of us have had jobs since the 90s (my only job was in 1992), so weve been self-employed for quite a while. In our household its a running joke for one of us to say to the other, Maybe you should get a job, derelict! Its like the scene in The Three Stooges where Moe tells Curly to get a job, and Curly ba...

    What Makes a Good Guest Blogger
    If ProBlogger was a real estate property, it can probably be likened to a snazzy professional suite in a condo. Top floor – latest furnishings and decor hip, business-like, but with a comfy feel to it and a nice view of the world around it. So, when Darren first invited me to become a guest blogger here at ProBlogger, I was honoured and pleased. It felt like being invited in to someones home – someones personal space – and genuinely telling me to make myself at home. And, with just a few house rules to follow, I can do just about anything else as Darrens guest. I can sip pe...

    eBay AdContext Product Manager Sheds Light on Program
    One of the product managers from ebays new AdContext contextual ad program, Ken, has just left a comment on my previous post about AdContext. As the comment was pretty long and quite comprehensive I thought Id promote it to be a post of its own. Hopefully it sheds some light on AdContext for those of you considering joining the program. Keep in mind the information is from someone working on it so there is an element of natural bias there – but I think Kens done a reasonably good job. Thanks for stopping by mate. Heres his comment: Im one of the product managers for eBay AdContext. I ju...

    The Importance of Letting A Good Post Wait
    Growing a readership is something that takes hard work and a little luck. Sure, sites like Digg and Reddit can greatly expand your readership overnight, but its really the way you craft your posts that will help the most with growing your blog. A bangin post is worth 10 mediocre ones any day. But unfortunately for most of us, in order to write a great post you have to be a decent writer. Becoming a better writer should be every bloggers goal. Better writers can craft posts in a way that a) get their point across quicker and b) connect with the audience more effectively.

    The Most Important Tip For Better Writing
    Im going to let you in on a little secret: Becoming a better writer is the best thing you can do to improve your blogs readership and traffic. Not how many buttons you have for easy submission to social services, not detailed SEO optimization, and certainly not gimmicky headlines that are created to tempt potential readers into reading your article. All of these things do have some effect on getting people to your blog, but if they dont like what theyre reading, theyre sure-as-shootin not going to come back. Its all about the content. Good writers have an advantage on traffic because their rea...
