Question: I’ve got a real problem over here. I am currently using MailChimp as my mailing list provider and for about two years, everything has been fine. I think I’ve managed to collect around 800 email addresses from people who are apparently interested in what I write on my blog. By the way, I have […]
I’ll be writing a series of posts in this thread that have to do with writing in general and how to best write to connect with your blogging audience. The reason for doing this is two or three-fold; first, I love to write and by this point in my life, I feel that I need […]
I challenge you to prove me wrong on this. Actually, I plead with you to prove me wrong. Someone, please, prove me wrong. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever seen the noindex tag improve the ranking of a website? I’m venturing a guess that you haven’t. I haven’t and I’ve been playing […]
I write a lot. I mean, a lot. I can be found at my desk for at least 12 hours per day and for most of that time, I’m writing. I obviously enjoy doing what I do or I wouldn’t be doing it. Anyone as diligent as I am can find a variety of things […]

Since 2006, I’ve written well over 4,000 posts as well as countless articles, emails and anything else you can think of. I spend most of my day […]
Oftentimes, when I write, I think only about what I want to write. I think about whether or not it’s going to be grammatically correct or whether or not it’s going to make sense. I think of the content and how I’m going to feel after I write it, but oddly enough, I don’t think […]
Through the years, I’ve met a lot of people who don’t take their grammar seriously. Even folks who write for a living don’t take it as seriously as they should. They have this thought in their heads that as long as they have an idea to express, that’s most of what they need. They think […]
One of the most important things you can do when you’re finished (or as you’re writing) with your blog posts is to proofread them. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve caught mistakes in my own writing. I don’t even want to get into seeing errors with other people’s because it’s just insane out […]
