These are what I believe makes a good blogger, tips that I strive to follow in my own blog. 1) Proper writingI have no clue why, but I cringe when I see improper grammar/spelling, especially when it’s written by an adult. There are certain exceptions. If you’re using slang or improper writing that is common in your particular field or hobby, that makes sense. If you’re still in school, cool. But when you’re finished highread more

Quick disclaimer here, this entire blog post was written by me (Nessy), not by an AI (artificial intelligence), in case that’s what you’re looking for! 😀 I’m fascinated by the idea of using AI for content creation. It can be used for blogging, email, advertisement… Steve Pavlina even gave me the idea of potentially using AI to draft songs. I thought this could be useful, especially in finishing song drafts or in generating new ideas.read more

Soooo… I’ve been running Google AdSense on my blog for years. I don’t know when I actually started using it, but if I had to guess, definitely 5-6 years ago for sure. I’ve also been part of the YouTube Partner Program for some time, maybe a year or so. And despite being a part of both programs for so long, I haven’t yet even cashed out a single penny. Both programs require you to hitread more

As I’ve been going on with my 30-day reading challenge and have been keeping up with Steve Pavlina’s NaNoWriMo challenge, I’ve been thinking more about writing a book of my own. I hesitate to start it early or to make it too challenging. But, it’s been a goal of mine for years to write a book. Just over time, my ideas on what I should write have changed. Currently, I’m thinking of writing about myread more

For weeks, I’d have the itch to write. I’d think, “I want to blog, but I don’t know what to write about.” Then, I’d try reading other blogs or my old posts to see what I could write. Usually, I’d end up with nothing. Yesterday though, I wrote three blog posts and scheduled them to post on three consecutive days. I don’t know exactly how this surge in writing happened. But when it does happen,read more

I’ve always wanted to publish a book, one that would do very well or be impactful in some way. I always thought it was a big goal. I have self-published a few books already, just to experiment with passive income. I took down two titles, one which was created out of uncopyrighted material from other bloggers, and another which was based off an old blog post I wrote. The last one, which I’ve kept up,read more

I don’t consider myself a good writer. I think I’m okay. Maybe I’m above average because I tend to make few spelling or grammar mistakes and I get my point across. Also, I’ve been blogging for many years. And, I’ve done pretty well in school whenever I had to turn in a paper. Regardless, it doesn’t matter much to me to be the best writer. I just want to be able to provide some kindread more

When I first started blogging, I didn’t really pay much attention to visuals. I just stuck to writing. I was used to seeing blogs with just text. Some of my favorite blogs don’t have any images on their actual page and may have many paragraphs of text. But when restarting my blog, I decided to add images. I wanted to create a visually enjoyable experience for the reader, with the theme of my page andread more
