I have a confession.

Sometimes I miss the good old days when you blogged mainly about what you wanted to write about without Google, SEO, SMM, content marketing, etc. hanging over your head like Damocles’ sword.

But then again, if you want to stay on top of your blogging game and rely on it for a living, you do have to think about those factors in addition to the most important thing of all: writing content that readers will find useful.

So, let’s say you’ve got the topic down pat. You know what gets the attention of readers, but have you thought about other factors that can help you become a better blogger? [Read more…]

The Most Destructive Viruses of All Time


Computer viruses have existed for as long as we can remember. Well, almost.

The first computer virus (externally released) is thought to be ‘Elk Cloner’. It is attributed to Rich Skrenta. It infected Apple DOS 3.3 computers and was spread via floppy disc – in those early days, the floppy disc was the main method of spreading viruses. That was back in 1982.

Funnily enough, Skrenta created the Elk Cloner as a simple prank when he was 15 years old. Elk Cloner embedded itself in a computer’s memory when an infected disc was used. It then spread to other discs that were used later on. [Read more…]

“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”
― Albert Einstein

We’re still alive, aren’t we? We continue to look for new clients and work with existing clients.

Shouldn’t we then apply Einstein’s words to our professional lives? Shouldn’t we find ways to continue growing professionally?

The reason I’m writing about this topic is that I have always been a firm believer in keeping up with new ideas and trends in my line of work. This is particularly important for online writers as the landscape of freelance writing, blogging, and content marketing is in a constant state of flux. If you stand still by not expanding your knowledge, you’ll find yourself being left behind. [Read more…]

“’Writer’s block’ is just a fancy way of saying ‘I don’t feel like doing any work today.’” – Meagan Spooner

Christopher Lee blogging life lessons

The death of veteran actor (among others) Christopher Lee has been the talk of the town in the last 12 hours or so. The legend has touched so many lives that his passing has not gone unnoticed – quite the opposite in fact.

But what has that got to do with us writers and bloggers? Sure, we could cover the news, but that’s just adding to the echo chamber. Worse, it’s bandwagoning. Everyone knows he’s gone, and we’re all feeling bad about it.

Everyone is paying tribute to Sir Christopher Lee. While we’re not making light of all the coverage – that’s practically all I’ve been reading in the past hours or so – I think there’s another angle here that bloggers can learn from. [Read more…]
