For a blog to reach this stage of “dumbing down what the big publishers claim,” there’s a long way to go. Here are some tips to make your blog stay on the high-performance circuit.
It’s obvious that this is my favorite topic – how to help newbies get on the right track. The trickiest part, as I’ve noticed, always concern about upgrading and/or improving expertise. Sure, everyone starts from basic. But if your learning rate is pretty steep, you won’t get anywhere great for a long time.
So shape up newbies, I’m gonna fire up pointers on how you can earn your stars the fastest (and surest of course) way possible! [Read more...]
The web is a congested cyber jungle. Whenever someone is looking at your blog, the odds are he/she isn’t devoting full attention to you (never have, never will). While someone is reading (or skimming) through your posts, a lot of other websites and applications too are competing with that short attention. And unless you own Facebook, you probably have to make the make do with a 1-minute page view visit.

The best time is always now…
Stop wasting your time. If you want something done, do it now.

And for that to happen, you must do something – a plan put into action.
Don’t Be a Free-Floater
“A free-floater is a person who just let the circumstances carry him…”
Literally. It’s like being in the middle of an ocean on a boat with no sail. Yes, you move and go to some direction, but it doesn’t take you where you want to be.
