Presenter:

Frances Monahan Rupp (@msmon, @SallyWigginHair)

Session Description:

Why You Deserve Pay for Your Blogging Work
This session will address blogging and writing for pay versus free
Because it is work!
But, but, I NEED published!
Everyone’s a writer/photographer/graphic artist
What about the Huffington Post?
Exceptions to blogging for pay

Category:

Blogging

Takeaways:

You will leave empowered with kahunas to walk away from a “gig” where a great deal of time and skill is required, but no pay is offered. With grace and dignity in tact for everyone.

How to FIND paying work.

If you’re looking to get paid for blogging, make it worth your while. Ad-sharing revenue and clicks are simply not going to add up.

Additional Info:

Sure! I’m a long-time paid freelance journalist living in Pittsburgh. Currently, I do PR for a nonprofit company. But I still freelance, and I don’t do it for free.
I was also the first female opinion blogger for the Post-Gazette but parted ways when we weren’t getting anywhere with ad revenue sharing talks.

Personal Blog | Is It Important To Have One?

Discover My Secrets: http://bit.ly/13PSJTC

Personal Blog – Is It Important to Have One?

Branding is important for anyone who’s online, and writing your own personal blog is a perfect way to brand yourself. You need a personal blog if you want to tell the world about your unique talents and the value that you bring. Here are a few reasons why a personal blog is so important:

Why You Need a Personal Blog

It’s Your Social Resume. Your blog is an online resume that shows people what you can do and what value you bring. It shows off your strengths.

It Keeps You Relevant. In order to establish an effective personal brand, you need to establish your expertise. Your blog shows that you’re up-to-date on what’s going on in your industry.

It Builds Trust. One purpose of branding is to build trust. People want to know who you are before they buy from you or hire you. Your consistency in your blog posts helps to build this trust.

It Gives You an Avenue of Communication. Blogging is all about networking, communicating and sharing interests with like-minded people. You can build relationships with other bloggers and with your readers.

Image Control. Your blog is your ‘home on the Web.’ It can help you manage your reputation.

You Can Tell Your Story. A compelling story is important in branding. It shows who you are and where you came from. Your blog gives you a chance to tell yours.

Naming Your Personal Blog

The best name for your personal blog is simply your own name. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. For one thing, if you use your name for your personal blog, you should be the only person writing content. It’s okay to occasionally accept guest blog posts, but the purpose of the blog is to sell you, not other writers.

You shouldn’t use your own name if the purpose of your blog is to sell products or services. For example, if you’re going to do affiliate marketing, use something else for the name. Your personal blog should focus only on you. If you’re using it to sell unrelated products, this will cause a disconnect for your readers.

One more thing to keep in mind is that you should only use your name if you plan to blog long-term. If you think you may someday sell the blog, use something else. It’s nearly impossible to sell a website named with a person’s name.

What Should You Write in Your Personal Blog?

When writing your personal blog, focus not on what you want to talk about, but what your readers want to hear. What would help them the most? Answer their questions and offer tips to help them with their problems. You might also post news about your industry or other topics that you know about.

Try to focus your blog posts on getting some dialog going. Ask questions or present arguments and encourage your readers to voice their opinions. You want to get as many people commenting as possible.

Don’t forget that the personal touch is what really sets a brand apart. This means that it’s alright to sometimes write purely personal posts. You don’t want your blog to be all about what you did today or how you feel about something you saw on TV, but it’s good to let your human side come out. Your readers want your helpful advice, but they also like to know more about you as well.

Galapagos Islands; Ecuador; Galapagos Travel Video Postcard

  • By
  • May 26, 2018

http://www.ietravel.com/ or http://www.newmediatravel.net or http://www.youtube.com/travelvideo
The Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador are the result of ancient volcanic eruptions from beneath the sea. The crusts of hardened lava that form them are black and forbidding. But the islands surprise the eye with their bursts of brilliant colors.

Whether it’s the flash of a yellow Galapagos warbler in a tree branch, or the red and green costume of the Christmas iguana, or the bright orange shells of the crabs — known as Sally Lightfoot crabs — colors abound.

The famous blue-footed boobies have feet the color of lapis lazuli. Their red-footed cousins seem to have dipped their toes in raspberry juice. But the most striking color of all comes from the inflated breast pouch of the courting male frigatebird — a brilliant red balloon.

Granted, the giant tortoises of the Galapagos are not the most colorful creatures on the planet, but they are the epitome of Galapagos, residents here long before any human set foot onto the otherwise colorful archipelago that is Galapagos.
