Jonathan's Blogging Journey


I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

How to Get an MBA in the Expert Business in Just 2 Weeks

The Amplify Summit - 10 Days, 27 Experts.

One of the top determining factors of success is whether or not you decide to keep learning after college. Studies have shown that the average college graduate will only read one book after college over their lifetime. I remind my kids often that what I do today for work (running an online blogging business) didn’t […]

5 Reasons You Can Go Further Faster with a Mentor

Why Mentors Can Make All the Difference.

“Keep your elbow in when you shoot the basketball.” I remember hearing those words thousands of times growing up. I was fortunate to have a Dad that was not only my mentor but my basketball coach. Behind every success in life, stands a mentor. Someone who lovingly told us what we were doing wrong and […]

How to Start a Membership Site in 8 Simple Steps

90 Days, 8 Steps to Income Freedom.

One of the best investments I’ve made in my online business was learning how to start a membership site. I’m amazed at how many people are against the idea of having one.

3 Questions You Must Answer to Get Paid to Speak

Speak your passion, change lives.

I still remember my first big public speaking opportunity. I was 19 years old and it was a gym full of high schoolers and parents. Sometimes it’s good to be young and naive. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. That was a good thing. While many people dread the idea of public speaking, still several […]

Hi Diane,

Welcome to the group. That is awesome that you have stayed with it that long. Too many people quit too early I am afraid. Took a look at your blog. Very nicely done! I bet if you applied some of the key word targeting strategies to stamping, card making, polymer clay, altered art, collage, mixed media, scrapbooking, baking and cake decorating you would really benefit from even more traffic. Nice job!

So happy to be joining this group. I have been "blogging my Passion" for about a year and a half. Have little patience with computers but I can drag and drop with the best of them. Look forward to reading tips and ideas to make it better. You can check out my blog at www.creativedestinations.blogspot.com

ok, excellent. You might want to consider doing what is called a 301 Redirect. You can find more info here: http://www.theinternetdigest.net/archive/301-redirects-seo.html

Scroll down to 301 redirect section. You will want to consider this for several reasons:

1. Less effort (don't have to move your old posts).
2. Your search engine rankings won't be effected (you will be able to keep your link popularity....as posts age google does favor them more and looks at them to be credible.
3. You won't loose any "link juice." When people point links to your blog it is a very good thing (as long as it is a "do follow" link. You would be starting from scratch with the new one.
4. Your content won't be considered "duplicate content." Google will always allow the first "indexed" article to rank better.

I know I just gave you alot of info. Depending on your experience it may not make sense to you. One of my first blogs had about 30 posts in it when I decided to switch the domain. I had someone from scriptlance.com do it for me in less then a few hours and I paid him between $10-20. I was able to move on down the road without skipping a beat. You can also take your current theme and upload it to the old one. Looks like they are both Wordpress.

Just some thoughts...

Thanks Brian. Great explanation. I took a moment to check out your new blog. Looks like you are on the right track. I noticed you are just getting started. Your in the perfect place to target the right keywords up front and get a jump start. With my first blog, I just wrote about anything for the first 50 post. Then, for the next 50 posts I applied some strategy like keyword targeting. I can tell you that it made a difference. I tripled the amount of traffic from my last 50 posts to the first 50 posts. Would love to help you anyway I can get your blog off the ground.

Wordpress.prg was a typo HAHA.....
Wordpress.com is a free account but you do not have complete control over everything.....it is like having a blog like: mypassion.wordpress.com
Wordpress.org is where you can install the blogging platform for your own blog. It is the process that I recommend. Keep asking questions......it will take a little while for it to all sink in.
Comment by Donna McQueen on July 21, 2010 at 2:58pm
Thank you, Jonathan. This is great info you're giving us! And very timely for me. What is the difference between Wordpress.com, Wordpress.org, and Wordpress.prg?
So glad you're sharing with us!!!
Blessings,
Donna
