Blogging for Dough, Does it pay?

(20)
July 23, 2013

I first started blogging back in 2010. One tiny blogpost and then nothing for an entire year. I restarted in ernest in 2011 but never got any colossal views on the Blogger site. I added Tumblr to my little blog verse and, again, didn’t really set the world on fire. It wasn’t until I made… Read More ›

60,000 and Rising

It was with great joy this morning as I squinted with sleep filled eyes at my stats page and saw I’d finally crossed the 60k mark. With one hand on my ubiquitous coffee mug and the other on my Macbook mousepad, I scrolled down and also saw that my following list had increased. All was… Read More ›

It’s the Big Four-OH-OH!

Wow! I woke up this morning and after a long debate on whether I really wanted to get up or not, I finally rolled out of bed. The first thing I do in the mornings is pop the old kettle on for my caffeine fix (aka getting my heart started) and the second thing is to… Read More ›

Blogging Part 5: Viewing

As I sit here watching my WordPress follower number steadily approach the big four-oh-oh, I’m thinking of things that I’ve done and can’t help but wonder if others do it too. One of my lazy habits for a long time was to go to the Readers menu and go through all my followers blog posts…. Read More ›

I’m Still a Versatile Blogger!

I’ve got to thank Asian Cinema Blog for sending this award my way. When she told me I’d been nominated, she stated, “I see you already have one, so another couldn’t hurt.” How true. I’ve always wanted to refer to my site as an “award-winning site” and now I can, several times over. Due to the… Read More ›

BOOM Upside My Head, Versatile Blogger Award!

Whilst I was reeling from getting THREE nominations for the Epically Awesome Award for Epic Awesomeness, Dave over at  Last Road Reviews pummelled me upside the head with a Versatile Blogger Award. Ouch! I didn’t see that one coming! As with all awards in the Blogging verse, this one comes with rules. Since I’ve taken days to respond… Read More ›

Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness Times Three

My mother always told me I was special (she still does actually) and even though I knew that she thought so, I knew it was because all mothers think their children are. But today, I’ve had no less than three different bloggers nominate me for the Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness! First, Kim over at Tranquil… Read More ›

That little badge of excellence.

Blogging Part 4: Etiquette Part II

Metaphorically strolling through the recent entries on the Freshly Pressed page, I noticed a disturbing trend. Some of these recent winners of that coveted page placement aren’t responding to their comments. They are responding to a few, but not many. When I got Freshly Pressed last year, I tried my damnedest to answer every single… Read More ›

Best Moment Award

I owe a heartfelt thank you to Sandra over at quirkybooks who nominated me based on my blog post – 50,000 Plus! Thanks Guys. This is the first time I’ve received this award and I am, to put it plainly, chuffed to bits (in American English that means damned happy). So  again, Sandra, thanks! I also… Read More ›

50,000 Plus! Thanks Guys!

Literally the day after I posted about my 1 year anniversary on WordPress, I passed the 50 thousand mark. To add to the excitement of that landmark, I also got 673 views yesterday which obviously helped to move my view totals up. While still surfing this wave of excitement, I thought I’d do a short… Read More ›
