Well that gives me ideas for how to write my blog. I haven't written one yet for real. Thank you for sharing all that. I think that will be a big help.

Glad to be of help. Writing the first one is the hardest. Once you get past will become easier. Plan your blog posts according to the top ten keywords you want to rank for. It's always easier to write from an organized plan.


Very nice informative post. Thanks for taking the time to put it together and for sharing.

Well thank you very much, Betty. I appreciate your comment. ~Rebecca

Thank you so much for the information! We should all keep the 7 Commandments by our computers and cross check any information we are uploading to our websites that it meets the criteria.

We all appreciate you taking the time to create the Commandments!

Thank you, Sharon. It's nice to have your support. I'm glad you enjoyed the post and found some value in it. ~Rebecca

Always worth a reminder!

I know what you mean...stay focused and stick with the basics. Thanks for your comment.

Thank you for this!!! I still struggle with blogging versus article writing and social network writing to drive traffic to my website. Everyday because of my WA membership I believe it will all fall in place ... thanks to members like you -

You are so-o-o-o right! It will all fall into place. It took me quite some time to learn the rudiments but once they are in place you simply have to be diligent in researching your target marketing and writing specifically for them being careful to establish the right keyword density in your post. You can do this!

Thanks for your comment. ~Rebecca

very helpful

Glad it helped! Thanks for your comment.

So much information in one post. I needed this because of your quote: "The money you hoped for is not falling like ripe apples from a tree. Now what?" I guess that's where I'm at. I don't expect "falling from a tree" but a few would help. :)

I hear you Virgie! We are all here to make a profit. Once of the activities I do to keep my self motivated is to study successful bloggers. Once you find out what they have done, you can model their success. Some niches take a while longer to gain traction and traffic than others.

You will not fail, Virgie....unless you quit. That was a hard lesson for me. I had to make several adjustments to my business model and writing style before I saw any cash flow.

You can do this! Kyle likes to say, "Give me a year and I'll teach you how to succeed with internet marketing."

Thanks for your comment!

I LOVE this! I have talked with so many people that ask how much money I make with my online business. People have to understand that it takes time to do it right, just like starting a brick and mortar business. Thanks for this awesome post- it's going into my favorites!

Thank you, Tracy. I'm with does take time to do it right. My first site failed because I failed to identify what my readers were looking for. I added a ton of content that didn't relate well. Needless to say, I've learned a lot since then. Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to blogging. ~Rebecca

Awesome advice!

Thank you. I'm glad you liked it. Sometimes I write to keep myself reminded of what I need to be doing more of! :)

Brilliant idea. That way you can help others and remind yourself at the same time. I may have to follow that example... :o)

Great post and nice to see you again rebecca :)

Thanks, Steve. I have been busy building my local marketing company. I'm glad you found value in this post.
