We got you started with the idea of building your own blog (versus hiring an agency to do it) in “Chapter 3” from the previous article, but our primary focus was on building a blog that makes you money. True, that could almost be the final chapter, but we thought with all of the talk about spending money, that you could use a chapter that finished out with you seeing how you could spend time and (acquired) skill in actually bringing the money in instead of sending it away from your pocketbook.
We all want to get ahead, right? Or maybe we simply want to reach our dreams? Whatever your goal in life is, somehow you have found yourself thinking about blogging. Am I right?
Great, then you have come to the right place for a two-part “Ultimate Blog Discussion.” Whether your goal is to start a blog for the first time, enhance your blog and make some money, or get some help in making your blog something that goes higher than the clouds, as far as your dreams go. But, no matter what the objective, we need to start some place and that is with a discussion.To help us do that, we have broken down the topics into chapters or modules.

I recently visited a website and was drawn to it in a way that is not customary for me. Now, I’m trying to figure out what it was that was so appealing about the design. With my own sites, I try to keep them fresh, but also try not to change them so often that visitors start to wonder if they have arrived at the right place!

It was hard to believe that it was not something fancy or technical or complicated, but simply a case of well-chosen fonts that were perfectly placed on the site.
The speed at which your page loads is better if it is loading the image off of your server instead of connecting to another server and loading the image from there. However, you can use a CDN (Content Delivery Network). The way that it works is that the company caches your blog or website in various company-owned data centers. When a visitor visits your site, instead of waiting for the page to load every element and piece of data and image, as if loading for the first time (which is always going to take longer), it connects to the Incapsula CDN and finds the fastest current cached version of the site and loads that.
Here at Basic Blog Tips, most of our blogging articles are focused on WordPress, but today we turn our attention to the topic of Squarespace. It’s a wonderful addition to the Internet space.

As a blogger and freelance writer, I discovered that I needed a good bookkeeping solution to help when the time came to do my taxes. Due.com is really the answer to the needs of a blogger who also freelances a bit on the side. It is an easier solution than anything else I have seen and yet it covers the needs that some other solutions miss (i.e. PayPal only).
