BloggingYou may have heard of blogging but not be sure what it is or why so many people are doing it.  If so, you’re far from alone–lots of people are curious about blogging.  To get your start in blogging, continue reading this article to find many tips which will help you to learn what blogging is and how to do it successfully.

Blogging income is great, but it shouldn’t be the focus of your strategy.  While it is certainly quite possible to make a living by blogging, creating a content that focuses completely on your pocketbook will almost certainly lead to disaster.  You need to build a strong readership and if you’re not interested in the topic you’re blogging about, it will be obvious to those who read your blog.  Write your blog about something you love, and that passion will be apparent in your posts, which in turn will build up the readership you need to monetize your blog effectively.

Keep your finger in the pie so to speak.  Know what other bloggers are doing and adjust your site accordingly.  Since you are in direct competition with them, it will serve you well to see what they are doing and what the response to it is.  Be mindful of the fact that they’ll be investigating your blog for mutual reasons.

If you want to build and hold onto a large audience for your blog, good content is vital.  Your blog needs posts that captivate, inform, and entertain your readers.  Content that demonstrates real quality (and, more importantly, honesty and individuality) will encourage readers to revisit your blog again and again.

Consider trading links to reach your target demographic.  It is best to trade links with blog sites that include information that is relevant to that in your blog.  Don’t waste your time or your readers’ time by trading links with sites that aren’t relevant to your own blog.  Your main concern needs to be drawing in visitors who are likely to stick around; this will improve your search engine rankings dramatically.

Use your existing social networking accounts to let people know that you have a blog. Request that they share the link to your blog so that you are able to gain a wider variety of readers.  An account that is a personal one may work even better, because people know they are interacting with someone who is real.

Create a plan for your blog.  Before starting a new business, of course your first step would be to write out a detailed plan.  You need to think of your blogging as a business, and do the same thing.  Having a plan will help you progress as intended and achieve your goals.

You want to use Windows Live Writer.  It is widely thought to be among the best blogging client platforms.  While this Microsoft product only works on Windows, it is much better than the blogging clients for Mac.  Best of all, this blogging tool is free.  You don’t have to pay anything to use it.

Remember the tips in this article so you can run a great blog.  Remember what you’ve learned here, and apply it to your new blogging lifestyle.

voice menu optionFacebook is rolling out another change.  Yeah, I know, what else is new. But this “Voice Menu Option” is actually pretty handy once you get the hang of it.  I will admit that it took me a day of working with it to understand it completely.  If you’re finding it confusing I hope this post will help and of course I’m assuming that the option has rolled out to you already.





Facebook Voice OptionIf it hasn’t and you don’t see a “Voice” menu item between your name and “Home” in the top blue navigation bar when you’re using Facebook as yourself (on a fan page) then bookmark this page so you can come back and read it later after the option shows up for you.

To see the Voice menu option button you’ll need to be using Facebook as yourself and not your Page.  The purpose of the new option is to make it easier for admins of more than one Page to switch back and forth between using Facebook as a Page and themselves. Previously, the way we did this was to select an option on our settings page to “Always comment and post on your page as [Your Page], even when using Facebook as [Your Name]” so that even if we were using Facebook as ourselves our posts and comments would always be as the Page.

Posting PreferencesUsing the old system, to switch back and forth between Pages and your personal profile you would click the down arrow to the right of the “Home” button and select the Page or your profile from the drop down menu.

Use Facebook As Elaine

I always found using the “Use Faceboook as:” drop down cumbersome so I just added all of the Pages I admin to a folder in my bookmarks. I selected the option to always post as the page in the settings for each Page and always used Facebook as myself.  If I wanted to post on my own profile, I was Elaine Horner, and if I wanted to post on my own or another Page and had turned on the “Always comment and post…” setting, I was posting as that Page and not myself.  Not a bad system and easier than switching to using Facebook as the Page from the drop down menu and then switching back to Elaine Horner (Personal Page) if I wanted to post on my personal profile, but if I did want to post on one of the Pages where I’d selected the “Always…” setting as Elaine Horner, it wasn’t possible unless I went into the settings and temporarily turned off the “Always…” option… until now.

With the new Voice menu option the system has been simplified and I’d have to say it’s one of the better changes Facebook has made lately.  The first thing to understand is that there is no longer any need for the “Always comment and post on your page…” setting.  Simply visit each Page you admin while using Facebook as yourself, select the Voice button and set it to say “You are posting, commenting, and liking as [The Page].

You are posting

After you’ve made sure the Voice for each Page you admin is the Page and not yourself, you can always use Facebook as yourself and ignore the “Use Facebook as” drop down. Just create a folder in your bookmarks so you can access the Pages or click the Home button to view your personal news feed and select the Page you want to post on from the left sidebar.  Instead of selecting a Page from the drop down (which always switches you to using Facebook as that page) and then having to switch back to yourself when you want to post on your personal profile, now you can always post on a Page as the Page and your profile as yourself, no switching necessary.  And, if you do want to post on a Page you admin as yourself you can make the switch quickly using the “Voice” button without having to access the settings.

Is GVO The Ultimate Marketers Toolbox?


GVOFinally GVO!  When marketing on the internet, sometimes you feel like your head is going to explode!  The amount of tools, systems, and services out there will make your head spin which make promises of easy riches when you use them.

Every day, there seems to be another “magic tool” that pops up promising millions of visitors to your site and large sums of money in your bank account….effortlessly.

GVO Your One Stop Shop

It can get overwhelming and take focus away from what you should be doing to build your business.

As you know, there are tools out there that not only make your life easier, but keep your business running on auto-pilot for you.

The trick is to know which ones to focus on and which ones to stay away from!

Let’s go through the essentials which every top internet marketer depends on a daily basis to run their million dollar businesses..

GVO Web Hosting

Obviously, without hosting, the internet would be a pretty boring place to hang out. If you have a domain name, you need a place to host it so others can find you.

Hosting companies out there range from free all the way to over $500 a month for dedicated hosting.

The key is to find a company that provides 99% uptime and also provides 24/7 support in case you ever have a problem.

And of course, just like anything, you get what you pay for.

GVO Auto-Responders

Have you heard the phrase, “The Money Is In The List?”

Well, having an autoresponder and building a list that knows, likes, and trusts you is the fastest way to literally pushing a button and having money coming in your bank account… faster than you can say… Hot Biscuits!

The formula is simple.

Create a page that gives something of huge value totally away for free. This could be a free report, a video lesson, an audio interview, or a live webinar.

Then, in exchange for your free information, the visitor will give you their name and email address.

And then the magic happens. You can follow up with them automatically and offer more value and even get them to buy something!

This is all done using an auto-repsonder, all automatically and efficiently for you.

Again, companies providing auto-responders range from $20 a month up to $99 a month.


GVO Video Hosting

The internet is all about video. And without some type of video on your website, most people will simply not hang around.

Video allows you to bond with your visitor and create more trust than with just words on your site.

We’ve all heard of YouTube for sure. But is a free service that is known for pranks, jokes, and music videos the right image for your business?

There’s a reason the top marketers host their videos through paid services and you should to.

GVO Website Builder and Prospecting System

99% of internet marketers don’t have the time and/or the skills to create their own websites or prospecting pages. Trying to learn website design and HTML code is not the best way to spend your time.

That’s where website builders come in. You simply customize your pages with your own video, product info, auto-responder, and you’re done!

GVO Live Webcasts

The most powerful way to sell is face to face. You get instant feedback and customers can ask questions and get their answers immediately.

Since we don’t want to meet all our visitors in person… Webcasts are the next best thing.

We can sit in the comfort of our own homes and present to people all over the world. Product demonstrations, video overviews, live questions and answers, it’s all possible with Webcasts.

If you’re not using Webcasts in your business, you are missing out on thousands of dollars of sales.

Typical companies charge between $49 to $99 a month and more.

The Top 5 Essential Tools

These are the top five tools that every top marketer uses and depends on a daily basis to make sales on auto-pilot.

And you can too.

The Best Way To Deal With Sleep Apnea.


sleep-apneaIf you wake up after a full night’s sleep not feeling refreshed or suffer morning headaches, consider sleep apnea. Is your loud snoring keeping your sleep partner awake at night?  These can be signs of sleep apnea.  The effects of this condition are often serious, so start looking for ways to treat your apnea immediately.

Try toning your throat muscles to help you sleep at night with sleep apnea.  By strengthening your throat muscles, you will stop your air passages from collapsing while you are sleeping.  Humming or taking up a wind instrument are good sleep apnea remedies.  Each of these things will help alleviate suffering that comes with sleep apnea due to weak muscles.

Sleep apnea can make you chronically tired, which is bad for you throughout the day.  Try getting to bed at about the same time every night and relax with meditation or a warm bath before going to sleep.  Try to go to bed and get up at the same time each day. This helps to stop sleep apnea from getting much worse where it could possibly lead to complete insomnia.

Sleeping pills are the worst way to deal with sleep apnea.  These pills can worsen symptoms.  Pills relax your throat muscles and cause a lot of issues.  Instead, take natural sedatives, including melatonin or warm milk.

Two unhealthy habits that make sleep apnea worse are drinking and smoking.  Each has a somewhat different affect on the throat muscles and the airway.  Alcohol cause the throat muscles to relax, sometime too much.  Smoking causes the throat tissues to swell, blocking the airway.  You will get tremendous relief if you just stop smoking and drinking. In fact, you may entirely resolve the problem.

Take what steps you can to reduce the risk factors of sleep apnea you’re subject to.  Certain risk factors that are associated with the condition cannot be controlled, such as being a man or having a family history of it.  Yet some risk factors are controllable, for example heaving drinking, smoking, and being obese.

Some cases of sleep apnea stem from an excess of throat tissue that obstructs your airway. Surgery can be the answer if this is your situation.  A surgeon can remove the excess tissue and open up your airway a bit by performing a UPPP.  Often times they remove the tonsils when they perform this surgery.

Excess weight is an issue that plays a negative role in many sleep apnea sufferers’ conditions.  If you suffer from sleep apnea and are overweight, try losing a few pounds. Diet and exercise can do wonders to treat this condition.  Reducing carbohydrate intake can be an effective way to take off the pounds, according to some recent studies.

Sleep apnea may be quite a serious condition and can be hazardous to your health in ways, but it is treatable.  Use the tips you have learned from this article to guide you in finding relief. If that doesn’t work, seek medical help as soon as possible.

Last Will and TestamentA Last Will and Testament is something that, as soon as signed, gets placed away and not thought about again for several years.  Wills do not expire so there is no built-in deadline for renewing them.  But we should evaluate and update our wills from time to time.  The question is – when?  How do we know that it is time to dust off the old wills and check them over?

For those of you (you know who you are) who did your wills so long ago that now you are unable to remember exactly where the wills are or which lawyer drafted them or even what the will says, the answer is – you must get new wills now.  If your will can not be found, in actuality you have no will.

For the rest of us, a will ought to be reviewed after life changing events take place. Obviously this is a bit different for everyone when it comes to how many years are involved, however the life events are shared by all.  They are:

  • when you are married or divorced
  • when you are widowed
  • when you have your initial child
  • when your kids all reach the age of majority
  • when you retire

Other possible issues going on inside your life that should spur you to re-visit your will are:

  • you own a company and are considering retiring or selling
  • you buy a holiday property in another country
  • one of your children has an addiction, bankruptcy or other problem that interferes with handling cash
  • you’ve become estranged from one of your kids
  • you want to set up charitable giving via your will
  • your spouse is experiencing early signs of dementia
  • your monetary status has changed, for much better or worse, since you made your will
  • you have moved to a different province or nation

Finally, you will find events related to the will itself that need you to create some changes:

  • the individual named as executor has died, lost mental capacity or moved far away
  • one or much more from the beneficiaries has died
  • you want to include extra beneficiaries or eliminate somebody who is presently named as a beneficiary
  • you need to hold some beneficiaries’ shares in trust

I encourage anyone who hasn’t looked at his or her last will and testament in the last five years to take it out, skim it more than, and possibly sit down with an estate planner to talk about whether the will still meets your needs.  Not each evaluation outcomes in modifications being made.  In case your will continues to be suitable, you’ve gained peace of mind without changing your documents.
