Time to Get Serious in Blogging

Maybe some of you had noticed that I had new blog post nearly every single day. Well, the reason is that I did not suddenly become an addict blogger. The truth is that I have been addicted to blogging since three years ago and nothing has changed since then. I think, now is the time for me to step up my blogging career and be a more serious blogger.

For the past months, I have been studying the intricacies of blogging. I have read tips from professional bloggers like Darren Rowse. I have applied many of their tips here on my blog, especially on marketing my site and raising its pagerank. I implemented some of the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques that I collected from the World Wide Web. I have also absorbed the mantra of Social Media Optimization (SMO), that's why I joined the social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

I also came out of my shell and I imbibed in the belief that I am a part of a community. This is the reason why I am eager to attend any blogging seminar and conferences that I discover. That is also the reason why I began connecting with my fellow Filipino bloggers, so that I could be a part of the Filipino blogging community. Aside from my Filipino blogging friends, I also got connection from my non-Filipino blogger friends who gave this blog better perspectives.

So far so good. The tips and techniques that I got from the blogging gurus are giving this blog some positive results. Now is the time for me to rise up. I believe that I should continue absorbing tips from the blogging gurus; study the potential of web hosting, like vps web hosting; and continue my foray in the social media.

So here's Ishmael Ahab, getting serious.

  1. Good luck to you in your quest to be a serious blogger! I am still treating blogging as an enjoyable pastime and not a tool to earn money.

    Nevertheless, I hope you will share with us on your blog all those techniques you use to improve your blog's ranking and traffic : )

  2. Thanks my good friend. ^_^ I am enjoying blogging too that is why I am also getting serious.

    I am enjoying it while earning a little cash.

  3. I am also a serious blogger. I am actually not-so-familiar with the tips you gave. Thanks for that info's ISH, i learned and i also want to add traffic to my blog, not so for business but more on people to know my thoughts, opinions and arts!:)

    Gotta be serious!:)

  4. @Steve:

    Well, I do hope that you will learn the things that I learned. Those things are helpful for any kind of blogger.


    Thanks my friend.

  5. Yay! nakaka adik naman talaga ang blogging ^_^

    As for me, nililimit ko lang ang sarili ko sa 1 entry per week. Nakasanayan ko na yung ganun :)

    Happy Blogging parekoy!

  6. Ako two blog posts per week. Yun yung planned posts ko.

    Pero nadagdagan yun kapag merong paid blog post na offer.
