Welcome 2017. Let’s start over again with a smile.

I have been a lousy writer for many years. I mercilessly let my blog behind and for many years. Colouring my future is up to me. So I am back again. Ups and downs of past years are packed in a suitcase and left behind. The blank page of 2017 is slowly starting to colour. I do not plan my future. It happens. Making it a better and a colourful year is up to me.

With this resolution let’s start back. I will do my best to contribute to the future of beauty. Cheers!

 


2017 Journey begins.

Christy Interviews the Flower Girl’s Rural India

I am moved to see that Christy, in her writer’s reviews blog has interviewed Sindhu. She is one of my favorite bloggers. Sindhu authors four blogs and her Flower Girl’s Rural India is the best blog of them all. It shows her passion for creativity. Christy has done a very nice interview with Sindhu. Well done Christy.

I feel like mentioning my favorite bloggers apart from Christy and Sindhu. Give me a break. Yes, Surjit in his Gurushabad is one of my favorite bloggers with his little inspirational posts I recommend him as the best inspirational blogger.

Priyanka in her Friendship postcards has a nice blog with lot of friendships and lovely pictures. Nikki is a freelance writer and she writes flowing articles in her Chaos in the country blog

Happy blogging to all of you my fellow bloggers.

Creating blog traffic with search engines

When you talk about traffic, to your blog or website, Yahoo, MSN and Google are the best search engines you can think of. Once you submit your article to these search engines their search bots will crawl through and hopefully find your blogSubmitting to Yahoo needs a payment but if you are so eager, then submitting to Yahoo is worthwhile. Google and MSN are easy to submit once you set up an e-mail account with them. You get your own homepage with your e-mail. You only have to follow their directions and submit your feed URL and hopefully wait for awhile until you can find your blog in the search engine.MSN is easy to submit once you create your own homepage with MSN. You can type your URL and if it does not appear, a message comes telling you to submit your URL and that’s it. You’ve got your URL submitted to MSN.I found a site called http://www.freewebsubmission.com. I do not know how it fully functions. You have to submit your site URL and you get listed in several web directories including main search engines. I think they provide a free trial for main search engines. The other site I fund was http://www.exactseek.com. It gives you many options. Just have a look. I still have to research these sites.

You can use ping services to submit your blog to directories once you get your blog URL submitted to them, the ping service will send pings for you to all these directories. You do not have to worry over individual submissions.

Blogging to business

Blogging to business is becoming more popular than ever. It is a cheap method of advertising and also fun. You get exposure to lot of like minded people and if you are a very skilled and creative blogger, you will attract people in no time.Growth of a blog takes time and effort. It depends on how your activities in blogging communities. Participation is essential to become popular. Make lot of friends. Make your posts meaningful and easy to read. People like to read simple and short articles.

You can advertise seminars. Your bargain sales, today’s specials, used items or any service you do locally and mix with local community. Make friends and keep e-mail contact with friends. You can send your blog as your e-mail signature. If you are not doing an online business search for local sites and submit your blog. Locals will respond.

One thing to remember; it takes time for a blog to grow. If you are using a free blogging platform like Blogger or WordPress. How ever it is advisable not to submit your blog to a community until you get a dot com domain. When your URL changes whole community and set of links created to your blog will disappear and you will have to start from scratch again.

My blog came back with URL Changed

Hi friends, I have to tell you that very strange things happen in this blogspheare. Hide and seek I call it. I was lamenting that my blog disappeared with my URL being taken by someone else. Well My blog appeared in my account with its URL slightly changed.

My previous URL was http://bossyourboss.blogspot.com but my blog returned with its full content with the URL http://bossyourboss9.blogspot.com what do you think?  I was telling everybody and posting everywhere about bossyourboss, I got it back but I have a blog called http://kurrykitchen.blogspot.com It has not appeared.

My blog ranked high with that URL in search engines. Now I will have to try link love with that blog. Never did it before. It was a long time journey with slow and steady growth. I think I have no option. I have to do a bit of link love.  I am ready to exchange links with anyone with this blog and I will submit my other blog to communities again hoping to exchange link love. Please leave a message if you are willing to exchange links with my blog and I will do the same.Happy blogging!

Prevent people from steeling your content

Recently after loosing my blog I was searching for solutions and reading many blogs on how to prevent content theft. After loosing my Blogger account I started my old wordpress blog again. WordPress seems very difficult to use. But when you follow the tutorials you can get to know it better.

I am still following tutorials and learning. The discussion board is very active and I find it very helpful. Most people using Blogger even after they loose their blog, start a new blog again with Blogger simply because WordPress is difficult. I agree, but give it a try and you will find it very interesting.

I think you fellow bloggers should reed these articles on How not to blog and what do you do when someone steels your content?.

Let’s continue blogging.

Do something different

We always talk about how to design a good website. Refer my article on Planning a website for your business.

What I am going to say today is the power of good writing will attract visitors better than many pictures and soapy sales articles. There are lots of business with websites that do not except payments online. They do it via cheque or credit. They even trade internationally. So if you are a new comer and cannot handle all the electronic web payment stuff, just market your website and if people are interested, they will contact you.

A good article in a website and correct key words can make wonders. You have to describe the specific item or service you are offering. You can do it in a very interesting manner. A reader must feel curious about what you are saying and keep reading on. And if it is really interesting, he might then try searching for your specific product or service and you might be able to do a sale. Many websites lack this ability. Almost all websites look the same to many customers. A different website will attract a customer during their search, and that will influence buying.

It should not always be a website. I have seen people doing business with blogs. If you describe your product in a very influential manner interesting to the readers. For example, if you are selling clothing or fashion jewelry, you just have to write some articles very interesting about them. Tell in your article why this fashion is important. Some people like to imitate celebrities, why not tell that a certain celebrity model wore this to that particular party and so on. Check Laling’s blog of Fashion.You have to do some research on your potential customers and write your article according to that. If you are selling uniforms or professional clothing this will not work, they will reject your article immediately.

If you are selling ladies make up kits, little articles on herbal treatments, natural facials, beauty tips and tricks will interest the potential customer. They might not buy at that point. But there is good chances of them keep returning to get new tips from you. Already you are offering free advice to your customers. Keep them encouraged in all the little articles you write by saying I will be back with more tips in my next article. Your frequent customer will tend to buy from you. At this point good customer service is really important. Only a satisfied customer will return to buy from you or refer others to you. Angry and frustrated customers will give negative feed backs about your service. All the time and effort you spent in preparing your website or blog will be of no use if your customers are frustrated. So be prepared at any time for a sales order. Assure your customer how long it will take to process the order and deliver the item. Display your terms and delivery time in your website. If you have a currency calculator it will help your offshore customers to verify their payments.

I have found that daily tarot readings on the web do not influence people very much. They are all the same and people get fed up. Most of the time they lure you into it and then you have to pay for the rest. But if some one tells you what Astrology is and what aryurvedic and holistic medicine has to do with it, will you not be interested in knowing more? You dig further to know what Astrology really means just click here to reed how Dr Teja explains Astrology.

For a beginner a blog will be a wonderful place to promote your service. Just leave your contact details and start doing business. Submit your blog to search engines and blogging communities. And I must say never limit yourself to internet. Just advertise locally and you can get more results. Usually at the beginning a website might not give you the results you expected, but with time it will grow. Satisfied customer recommendations and an up to date website will make your chances in the web grow.

Dear All

I am editing my first article on this blog because I want to write articles on business related topics. Earlier article here was about butter and food stuff. That was from my interests in natural science.  Since my blog with Blogger which had great content has disappeared, I cannot stay Idle. I will write articles on this new blog on themes of e-commerce and business related topics based on my research and studies.  This blog is not a new one. I just did not make this blog public. This was idle and now is the time to start writing on themes I love. I do not know whether I will be able to recover my previous blogs. If I recover them, its ok I will write articles there too. If not, I will take it as every thing is impermanent. When we are not sure weather we will be there tomorrow or not, what can you say about a blog?
