Socialize– Try to talk to other bloggers as much as possible! If someone follows you make sure to pay their blog a visit and leave a like or comment! And be interactive in your own comments section too! Blogging is all about meeting new people from all around the world and sometimes you learn really interesting things from them and end up making great friends.

Edit– Make sure you edit your work at least once and make sure everything is on point because let’s be honest no one likes a sloppy blog. Some grammar mistakes usually go unnoticed but if you are particularly bad at something make sure to double check it! Having a more neat and coherent blog can really help you increase traffic and followers to your blog too!

Reach Out– Don’t wait for people to visit your blog but rather go visit theirs! You can follow…

5 Ways To Make Your Blog Look More Professional

You do not need to necessarily have a super professional looking blog but it would help increase both traffic and followers. It would also help if you are thinking of attracting sponsors or working with other blogs as more companies are likely to work with you if you have a very professional looking blog. Anyway, here are some tips that might help you out

1. Edit- One of the first things people tend to notice is whether or not your post has been edited. It may not seem like a big deal and it may seem like your writing is fine but a lot of times when you reread your post you will find little mistakes you didn’t even realize you had made. Make sure to read through it at least once to check for spelling errors and grammar mistakes. A well edited post shows the reader that you have put a lot of work and effort into it and looks really professional.

2. Use High Quality Pictures- To make your posts seem more professional be sure to use high quality images.  It looks much more professional and you’ll be more likely to get sponsors or companies that want to work with you.

3. Create Social Media Pages- Advertise your blog on social media. Most professional blogs do tend to have social media pages such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Another really great place to create a profile on is LinkedIn. Here you can broaden your professional connections and also find jobs.

4. Organize Your Blog- If you want your blog to look professional you have to make sure it is well organised. Make sure it has specific categories and tags the reader can use to find specific posts.

5. Sound Professional- This sounds a little obvious but try to sound professional by doing things such as avoiding too many contractions. I am totally guilty of breaking this rule and I tend to use contractions a lot but this is where editing comes in. When you reread your post make sure to get rid of any contractions that are unnecessary or anything that doesn’t sound professional.

From Blog 2.0 To Money Site – How To Monetize A Web (Guest Post)

From Give it a Spin

We are going to talk about that step that turns our blog into a whole money site. Since we are talking about a money site and not a blog that allows us to vent on our hobby every weekend, we have to think about what our future source of income will be.

Monetizing a blog is not as easy as some people think. In many cases it comes unintentionally, you have a quality project and a company is interested in you …

Why is monetization important?

  • Costs of maintaining a blog such as hosting, domain, payment plugins, images…
  • Hours of work of the blogger. Training, writing, content promotion, creation of images…
  • Copywriters or professionals who collaborate sporadically.
  • Costs of external services, such as SEO or web design, digital marketing, advertising…

For these reasons and especially because everyone who works deserves a reward for their work, it will be necessary to monetize a blog. It is important to be clear about the difference between “monetizing a blog” and “getting rich with a blog”, they are very different things.

Can all the blogs be monetized?

No.

The first thing to know is that a blog always starts with losses (without visits there is no advertising but costs). To know that the time has come to monetize your blog you have to get a monthly number of visits between 30,000 and 50,000. Afterwards, manage to maintain it. An objective that belongs to the digital marketing team in many marketing agencies.

Symptoms that tell us about when a blog can be monetized

1. Traffic to the website. Let it be enough and continued in time.

2. Ensure the update of the page in the medium term.

3. Have a series of loyal followers, who read us always, no matter what happens.

4. Have a good organic position (SEO) for the keywords that interest us (which give money go).

5. THAT IT IS A USEFUL BLOG. The most important without a doubt.

How is a blog monetized?

There are many ways to monetize a blog. Let’s see some examples of how to sell or monetize a blog:

Google Adsense

It is the best known way to monetize a blog. Part of the basis that a greater number of visits higher income. To me the experience tells me that for a personal blog it is not the best formula.

Sale of products or services

Selling a product or service on a relevant and already positioned website is a great way to get money. However, this is one of the most complex options to achieve in the short term. To get to sell something on our site we need more than time and dedication. Here we could talk about:

1- Drop Shipping: It is a type of sale in which the retailer does not store the orders, simply acts as an intermediary with the wholesaler. Let’s say you “pass the order”. Very interesting today.

2- Training courses.

3- Events.

4- Webinars: In short, it is something like offering online conferences.

Affiliation with brands

We recommend certain products to visitors to the site, and if they buy the product through a link on our website or through a cookie that has been inserted into your computer, we will obtain a percentage on the purchase. Here the interesting thing is to know which keywords offer the most money …

Infolinks

System that allows inserting advertising links in some keywords of the page.

Payment content

With tools like Shoplocket to sell your products.

1- Templates

2- WhitePapers

3- E-Books

4- Podcast

Advertising banners

That we locate in the “hot” places of the web or the blog.

Consulting sale

Professionals that offer their low cost services and online.

Agreements with advertising platforms for bloggers

As for example E-Buzzing, Adlemons, Bloguzz, …

How To Get More Followers On Your Blog For Free

When I started out I had no idea how to get more traffic or followers and it was kind of a tough learning process. I actually almost gave up on my blog and if it hadn’t been for those two followers I had I may have actually given up on blogging altogether which is a scary thought! But thankfully I kept blogging and I eventually started gaining followers and got more traffic. Here are some of the ways I did that:

Reach Out- If you want other bloggers to view your posts and leave you likes, comments and follows you should be doing the same! Especially if you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to check out other peoples blogs- not only will you learn new things from them you’ll also start getting your own name out there. It helps to leave comments because then they’ll notice you and most likely check out your blog as well. However, make sure you don’t just like posts for the sake of it and you don’t just follow random people for follow backs because it’s important to be authentic and get real followers who will engage.

Be Regular- It’s so important to post regularly because your traffic and number of followers will drop as soon as you stop posting regularly. And if you post regularly you’ll notice a rise in likes and followers. I learnt that the hard way because I spent a long time posting randomly and not getting a lot of follows/likes but as soon as I started posting regularly I was like “OMG”.

Image result for be regular gif

Tags Are Important- Make sure to Google before you post to see what the most viewed tags on WordPress and most Goggled words are so you can add some of the relevant ones to the tags on your post. But don’t add random irrelevant tags because honestly that’s just annoying.

Image result for tag gif

What’s your niche?- Make sure to like and follow bloggers who write about the same or similar topic/topics because they are way more likely to follow you back. Also search some relevant tags on your reader to find similar blogs!

Keep It Real- Keep your writing honest because people can tell when you’re being fake or lying and no one really wants to read a blog like that. People will appreciate your writing more if it’s honest and you’re not afraid to express your opinions and they’ll be more likely to give you a follow!

Image result for keep it real gif

Have Fun With It!- Honestly, don’t stress out too much about followers and likes because at the end of the day you should enjoy what you do and if you write just for the likes/follows it will kind of suck the fun out of blogging.

Image result for excited gif

I just want to take a minute to thank all my amazing followers out there! When I first started this blog I didn’t know what to expect or if it would even work out but I’m so glad I stuck with blogging. It has opened up a whole new world for me. I have made so many friends from around the world that I would otherwise have never known. I’ve learnt so much too and have got so much inspiration from you guys! Thank you for always supporting me and my writing. When I see the likes, follows, shares and comments it really lifts me up and makes a difference in my life. Thank you all for everything and I hope you guys continue to support the blog.

Image result for thank you gif

I also want to say there are some changes coming to the blog! I am adding a few new categories which means I’ll be blogging more often now- everyday minus the weekends if possible! I’m really excited about that and don’t worry I’ll still be doing all the other stuff I did, these are just some additions to that!

Image result for new stuff gif

I just wanted to end this post by saying thank you again for making blogging so amazing for me and your continued support! All this is because of you guys!

Lifesfinewhine Is Officially On Instagram!

So I finally decided to join Instagram! To check out my profile click here.

I decided to join because firstly I wanted to share my blog posts on it and secondly I thought it would be fun to share a bit more of my life and what I’m doing because as much as I try to share on my blog I can’t really share everything I do every 20 seconds because that would be weird and slightly annoying but totally normal on Instagram! 😂

I also wanted to sort of make more memories and I thought this would give me more incentive to go out more often and also try new things. It also help me kind of document my life and this way I have pictures/videos to look back at and remember stuff and smile!

Image result for instagram gif funny

I am also planning on sharing vegan and vegetarian recipes as well as some posts about makeup (like tips and my favourite brands) because I feel like Instagram would be better for that then my blog.

This is probably what my Insta is going to consist of… 😂

So if you want to get more of an insight into my life and just what it’s like for me day to day as well as vegan/vegetarian recipes or stuff about makeup make sure to follow me and feel free to DM me whenever!

Great News – The Banning of Ivory and Tusks from Being Imported Into the U.S. – Change.Org

Finally some good news!!

Opher's World

Ban elephant ivory and tusks from being imported into the U.S.

1M supporters


Petition update

Victory!

Kathleen Martin
Vancouver, WA

28 Jan 2018 — After months of limbo, the Trump Administration just officially announced the reversal of the ban lift of African elephant trophy imports into the United States! This victory was won by you, and the more than 1.1 million Change.org supporters who rallied together to protect the threatened African elephant.

I started this petition because we are not powerless to effect change in any administration. Because of your incredible support, this is true, and our voices were heard! Thank you to every individual who signed and shared. Together we reversed a policy that would have been disastrous for the majestic African elephant, and I am so hopeful we changed this future together.

Thanks so much!

Kathleen Martin
