  • Make Money Blogging: 20 Blog Revenue Streams

    By Jennifer Mattern on March 27, 2013
    The post below was originally published on my small business blog after a friend asked me some basic questions about how he could begin to make money blogging.

  • When it Makes Sense to Have Multiple Blogs

    By Jennifer Mattern on May 10, 2011
    In addition to being a freelance writer for clients I'm also a professional blogger and Web developer in my own right, running several different types of websites over the years including dozens of different blogs. That experience lets me appreciate the value having multiple blogs can bring through exposure, new contract work if you're looking for it, and product sales. […]
  • Elitists, Haters, Negativity and Anger—Oh My!

    By Yo Prinzel on March 5, 2010
    WARNING: This post is very negative because I was an angry elitist when I wrote it so I fully expect a bunch of haters to come out of the woodwork and say negative things about me, thereby showing what negative, angry elitists they are themselves. Did the warning above sound kinda circular in its logic when you first read it? […]
  • Is Your Favorite Freelance Writing Blogger Everything They Say They Are?

    By Yo Prinzel on February 12, 2010
    If you read freelance writing blogs to help yourself create a better career then I've got news for you. Not every blogger out there (in any niche) is everything they say they are which means you could be using untested or bad advice.

  • 3 Reasons You Shouldn't Delete Your Blog Posts

    By Jennifer Mattern on January 7, 2010
    Now you see it, now you don't. The blog post you read in your feed reader an hour ago was deleted by the blogger. But why? It always baffles me when I'm reading a blog and suddenly the content changes (as in it vanishes). There's rarely a good excuse for it, although I'm sure there are some. Before you think […]

    By Jennifer Mattern on December 19, 2009
    Happy Saturday everyone! I'm spending mine indoors with calls for potentially record-breaking snowfalls here.

  • Five Signs You Might Be a Blogwhore

    By Clint Osterholz on October 28, 2009
    Dear reader, I've called you here today for an intervention. Oh sure. It started out innocently enough. You started out at Blogspot (maybe even Livejournal!) and put your ideas out there. It was pretty nice catching up on your infrequent and irregular posts. Once in awhile you would put up several posts in a week, other times you wouldn't update […]
  • Do Readers Expect Too Much From Bloggers?

    By Jennifer Mattern on August 19, 2009
    I stumbled across a comment recently where someone said blog posts should be objective and not based on opinions. I found that odd. After all, opinions are what make blogs blogs. Remember they were originally started as more of a journal than an educational tool. The content has morphed from personal blogs to a wider variety or topics including business […]
