What is a Blog? How to Blog Series – Post #1

What is a Blog? How to Blog Series – Post #1 | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

'What is a blog' is the first post of 'Bivori How to Blog Series' a blogging guide for complete new readers. Find how some famous bloggers define blogs...


Karen Woodham from Blazing Minds has always inspired me. I love that she is always kind and thoughtful and she’s also very talented musically. I remember when she would blog about anything and really didn’t have a niche blog so to speak. As time went by she experimented with all sorts of ideas but she always managed to maintain her unique outlook on the blogosphere. She does movie reviews these days but still manages to connect with her audience on a deeper level by sharing personal stories every now and then. She is also a bit of a celebrity these days, but she stays grounded and I think she is an awesome role model.


Ileane is truly a very active blogger with exceptional networking skills. She has an awesome blog – Basic Blog Tips. You can turn to her for WordPress blogging, social media, podcasting, YouTube marketing and tech tips!

Check her blog – Basic Blog tips | Find her in Facebook, Twitter

I'm not a pro blogger though. My blogging journey started some two months ago and I have struggled to create an impact. While moving on, I have read tons of blog posts and have come across very interesting bloggers especially on the famous blog Engage platform.

Stop. Feel Like You’re Marketing With a Blindfold On?  Not Getting Results?  Here’s Help! | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

Blog post at 2 Create a Website - The Blog : Hold it.  Let's put on the brakes for a moment....


SEO Time Wasters 


This is an area where I feel people waste too much time today. Not because SEO is a waste, but many of the strategies we used to rely on have died/are dying.
SEO is becoming more and more manipulation proof. In other words, activities that can be easily replicated will have less impact than they did before.
Anyone can submit a bunch of articles, forum signatures, amass oodles of links through schemes, submit to numerous directories, etc. Spending hours per week on those activities will no longer give you the same benefits you may have realized years ago.
So you could spend your day chasing backlinks or write one really solid article for a popular blog like ProBlogger or Basic Blog Tips.

Google is Trying to Tell You Something, Are You Listening? | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

Google has put so many awesome tools at the disposal of bloggers and small business owners that at times, it's almost impossible to keep up with them all. Google wants you to succeed with your online endeavors but let’s face it, we all know that they are getting more then their fair share out of the deal too.


Yet, as bloggers and webmasters, when we stop to think about all the perks we get from Google, two things should stand out in our minds above the rest:

  • Google Analytics.
