The DOs and DON'Ts of Blogging

Alright, well SOME Dos and Don'ts for blogging. Of course there are A LOT of things you should and shouldn't do when it comes to blogging. At this point you should already have an idea of what you are going to blog about. I am going to point out a few of the important Dos and Don’ts. Let's start with the DON'Ts.


Spend ALL day online. First your eyes will start to hurt and then you will start to experience horrible headaches. LOL! This is what happens when you sit in front of a computer screen all day. Searching, writing, reading, watching. At some point during the day, you have to give it a rest. The great thing about the Internet is that what you are looking for will always be there. Go back to it later. If it is taking you more than an hour to write a blog posting (unless in depth research is involved), you need to change the subject.

Plagiarize. Duh. Just like in school, you cannot do this. You would be breaking the law if you did. AND for the record, there is a difference between copy writing and plagiarizing (you can research those). You can always get ideas from other bloggers, but never ever copy anything from their posts WITHOUT recognizing them.

Waste time in forums and communities. You are going to hear a lot of people suggest you do this. But my suggestion is to find 3 to 4 forums or small social networks you like. Share the same postings from your blog with these select forums, on a regular basis. You may not be recognized at first, but eventually they will notice you.

Spam. Not only is this annoying but it’s bad “etiquette”, if you will, for bloggers. One example of spamming is coldly commenting in a forum or on another bloggers site and including your website information:


NOT cool. Another form of spamming is sending your blogs to people that didn't ask to read them. Post them on your blog, forums and communities. If people are interested in reading them they will find you.

Post every day. Not only does that put a lot of pressure on you, but people don’t have time to read your posts daily. Think of all of the online publications, newsletters and bloggers you are subscribed to. If they send you information everyday, do you actually read it? The truth is, NO. So don’t put your readers through that. Give them something to look forward to every week. Now on to the DOs!


Get advise from an experienced blogger. If there are certain blogs you have found that you really like, take it upon yourself to email the blogger and see if they would mentor you. Find a good business coach that may be able to help you focus in on what your goals are.

Ask for feedback. NOT from people in the forums you choose, but from your family and friends. They are our toughest critics. So, if they have suggestions or opinions about your blog posting, take it in stride. Don't take EVERYTHING to heart and change everything they think you should, but you should definitely take their suggestions into consideration.

Be patient. I say this all the time: Just because you create a blog or website and throw it out on the WORLD WIDE WEB (notice the word, WORLD), doesn't mean people are going to flock to it. It will take a little time to build popularity but it is definitely possible. You just have to be patient and keep posting and keep directing people to your site.

Write UNIQUE and CREATIVE content. Even if you know what you are going to write about, you need to make sure it is DIFFERENT from everyone else's. Also, you do not have to write about the SAME subject in every posting if you do not want. Make it interesting for your readers so they will keep coming back for more.

Get paid for blogging. Well yeah! What other reason would you be blogging for? There are several ways you can get paid to blog. One way, is to get advertisers on your site, that will take some time to happen, but it is definitely possible. Another way to get paid for blogging is to find a blogging platform that will pay you to actually blog and show others how to do the same. I use a great system that does just that. You can sign in and find out more here => BeFamousOnline2

Blogging does not have to be difficult or tedious. It can actually be fun to share with others your life, opinion or information that could help them. You just need to keep in mind some DOs and DON'Ts so you can be a SUCCESSFUL blogger.

Homeless, Broken and Beat (Explicit)

I had to forward an email I just got from
David Sharpe. I was a little taken back
when I started reading, but I think you'll
see why I passed it along to you.

Just FYI.

It is a little graphic.....

-------Fwd Email-------

Most folks would never tell you about the

skeletons in their closet in fear that you
might judge them.

Well here's my truth.....

For 10 years of my life I struggled with

addiction and alcoholism.

I lived mostly on the streets and in abandoned

cars and houses.

I had a daughter at the age of 16 and was

separated from her when she was 5.

I felt empty inside and never thought I

would get to experience life the way
'normal' people do.

I was a victim of my own thinking and

bad decision making.

And, I....

...on more than one occasion, almost lost my

life by way of being in the wrong place at the
wrong time.

However, in February of 2008 I reached a

bottom I had never experienced before.

I was empty on the outside.....

.....and empty on the inside.

I took a risk, and crawled my way into a room

where I knew a man and asked him to help me
save my life.

And he did.

After massive personal transformation, 4 years

passed and a little blood, sweat and tears......

......I've managed to stay completely clean and

sober and turn my life around full circle.

I've fought to get my family back, including

the most important person in my world..... eleven year old daughter.

I'm actually about to run out the door and have

a 'dedicated daddy night' with her and grab some
pizza :)

I found love.....

....and plan to spend the rest of my life with

Erin,  my girlfriend, who has also helped me
save my life.

Not to mention when I first started this whole

online marketing thing just over 2 years ago......

......I didn't even own a computer.

Today it's not like that though.

Not only do I know what it's like to have a

defining moment in my personal life - I know
what it's like to have a defining moment in my
business, too.

I've since gone on to become one of the most

sought out trainers, coaches and marketers in
the online marketing industry, and built teams
in the thousands and produced results on a
massive scale.

I invite you 'behind the walls' of my life because

I want to share my personal experience with you
in hopes that you realize......

....whatever 'monkeys' are on your back.

...whatever struggles you're trying to overcome.

...and no matter how much you think there's no

hope left.

I'm here to tell you that there is.

If a 28 yr old homeless addict, who society

wrote off as an outcast and lifetime loser
can break the mold and seize the moment....

So can you.

And not only do I want to help you create a

permanent change in your personal life...

I want to help you create a permanent change

in your business, too.

But you have to do what I did and take action.

I crawled my way into a room where I knew

a man and asked him to help me save my life.

And he did.

Now it's your turn.

In the last 2 weeks, we've seen the people

inside Empower Network display greatness.

They've done things that will be talked about

for YEARS to come.

And already, thousands of people have made


And it's been deposited directly into their bank


Because we want you to be in control of

your life ...and your money.

You work for it.

You get it.

You do what you want with it.

And don't settle for less.

Our income report is tremendous, and we're

proud to show it off to whoever wants to see it.

Because we're making a difference.

One person at a time.

One family at a time.

One business at a time.


If you haven't had your first 100% commission

directly deposited into your bank account yet,
you deserve to feel that feeling.

We've already paid out $773,024.20 .....

....and we just hit our 6,000 member today.

550 people are joining everyday.

Do you think there's a reason for that?

And all that in just 16 days.

We've got a couple of people who have made

more than $30,000.00

Several that have made more than $20,000.00

And lot's that have made more than $10,000.00

Best of all....

We've got tons more who have made a few

thousand, or even their very first sale online.

Sometimes I sit back and think about what

would have happened if I never took a risk
to ask someone to help me save my life.

Where would I be?

What would I be doing?

Who would I be with?

If I didn't decide.

Every breakthrough starts with one thing.

The first step.

Take it, now.

You will never get this moment back.

It's your turn.


This is as good as it gets.

We just want to know if you're ready to join us.

If so, we'll be waiting on the other side.

Watch This:

And Then Join Us Here:

To Your Success!

This post originally appeared on the blog, where SistaWAHMs (Tiffany & Tamara) regularly share tips, ideas, and news on leveraging entrepreneurship and frugality for an abundance of life.

What exactly is it that we do, you ask?

In its simplest form, we answer questions and give advice on ways to leverage entrepreneurship and frugality in order to obtain abundance in life.

We answer emails, chats, tweets, comments, you name it.

We are wealthy in the sense that we are giving to those in need and providing value all while doing so for free, but, we must also value our time something that is not in abundance.

The answers we provide to the questions we receive are always detailed, resourceful, and down right good.

Do you find yourself freely sharing advice but wishing you could find a way to monetize your efforts?

If so, you’ll want to read on to see what free tool we found to make this happen!

As the old saying goes, “time is money”, and if you don’t want to waste anymore time or money then you’ll want to consider selling advice over the phone.

Consultants, therapists, stay at home moms, and Internet marketers alike can all benefit from a free online service called Ether. allows you to “sell what you say”.

Before now, the only way to get paid for what you said was done by coordinating teleseminars, webinars, and live events.

Now, Ether gives you a way to hold one-on-one sessions and still get paid.

You will want to tell Ether exactly how you wish to be paid – consider now how much your time is worth.

Set your price, what will it be $5? $100? Then set whether you are paid this amount per call, per minute or per hour.

When you sign up to Ether you will receive a unique 8-digit phone number that can be forwarded to the phone line of your choice. If you have a blog or website you can get an Ether button that lets your customers know whether or not you are available to take calls.

For those of us with children or outside the home jobs, just set the hours when you want to take calls or simply turn your Ether phone number off with a click of a mouse.

If you happen to be a stay at home mom with babies or small children and the phone is not a viable option right now, Ether even uses email versus phone which allows you to sell any digital product you possess (i.e. audios, videos, interviews, etc).

The only way a customer can reach you is after they’ve prepaid your rate. So, the one thing with Ether that you can always count on is that you will only receive phone calls that are from paid customers!

To sign up to Ether takes 2 minutes and it’s free to start, no monthly fees, setup fees, or connection fees.

All Ether asks for is a 15% commission fee which you can recoup or include in the fee you specify.

How payment works is:

Ether collects the customers credit or debit card information.

Once the customer has paid, the call is transferred to you and your money is sent to you via direct deposit or check – you are paid at the end of each month.

Now you can sell advice over the phone, set your own schedule and pricing, and receive only paid phone calls!

While it will always pay off to freely give and share advice you also need to understand your worth. You never know just how much someone else is willing to pay you to better themselves in exchange for your expertise.

You can learn more about Ether - like how you can market your services and get paid right on their site. Be sure you come over to FMT after you’re done here and share your experience and earnings with us!

I was on the light rail in Newark earlier today. I decided to take a picture to share with you more elements of my life. It was soo good the feeling of freedom that comes from earning money from your own enterprise.I am so glad that we have the Black Business Builders Club where I'm building a residual income. But what's really awesome is I'm getting built in Paid Automatic Referrals. This means that everyone who pays me to be on my list, has to give me two paid referrals in order to be qualified for the instant pay, residual pay and automatic paid referrals. Cool or COOOL?Life is good. I'm just happy to be part of such an awesome program. Join Us.
