It’s been awhile but I think I’ll be geting back to this blog a bit, if only to see if Ican send stuff from Zazzle to here. I wonder how that works? Good luck to me!
I am trying a new website called Wed Cents. It’s basically a site about sensible wedding tips. I figure this is a short sweet write and then I can leave it. I can get some adsense revenue as people search. There are lots of ideas and maybe I can eventually sell ads. The wedding industry and saving money industries tend to be hot searches. As I planned my own wedding, there were few really good places to look for practical ways to save money. Many required too much work or didn’t offer the sort of wedding I wanted. I found a few really good ideas but mostly they were in books. I hope that this site works!
I’ve been writing a lot about cat litter. I have heard that link to specific pages actually help more than just to the main page so I have decided to work on writing about cat litter and seeing if I can get traffic to that one particular page. After all, Siamese cats use a lot of cat litter–or not, depending upon the cat!
So if your Siamese cat needs to know more about cat litter, I have the main page. I’ll also be writing other pages and articles about Siamese cats and cat litter. Look for my squidoo page coming soon as well.
I just logged onto Ezine Articles and I’ve just received the upgraded approval. I am now at their maximum level and can submit as many articles as I want. One more of my articles has already been printed. It was a very timely article on things that stress a cat during the holidays.
I’ve had a lot of folks looking at how to market your acupuncture practice free. I think people know that’s a title that will draw others in. I’m glad about that. I’ve noticed that the people looking at quantum tend to be a bit more inclined to click on my affiliate links and such, although when I get clicks through My Siamese, they tend to buy. It’s interesting the two different demographics.
I have submitted by 10 articles to ezine articles and now I have to wait until my account gets upgraded, which could take up to two weeks after the last article is reviewed. It’s taking forever. It takes almost three weeks right now to get an article reviewed and it seems to get slower and slower… Maybe by the end of the year, I’ll be upgraded and then the reviews are supposed to take less time.
I like ezine articles because of the features. I can see how many page views I’ve had. They bring traffic to my writing. I am not the main force driving traffic, though if people like what I write I might be. I can send people to direct links but it’s not required. I feel that Associated Content is getting cheap content from me in order to drive more traffic to their site. They also expect me to drive traffic to their site and I’m not planning on doing that. I have sites that I want to drive traffic to.
Squidoo, I can understand that I need to drive traffic. It’s like a big affiliate marketing group there and you need people to go to your particular site. That’s always important.
There are other good article submission places but they don’t give me the feedback that ezine articles does. This is definitely my favorite for the moment.
This is my first post and I’m still deciding what to do with this blog. I write a lot. I want a place to keep track of my articles, how much money I’m making from my online activities and track traffic stats.
I don’t know that this will be interesting to anyone but me, but you’re welcome to visit if you happen to enjoy it.
