This is a guest contribution from Will Nicholls. It was a little over two years ago when I first went online and bought my blog’s domain name. I wanted to announce it to the world and get started straight away, but instead I spent the next 6 months developing and filling the website with content so that I wasn’t launching on an empty stomach.
This is a guest contribution from Brian Lang of Small Business Ideas Blog. According to an article in the NY Times, 95% of blogs get abandoned within four months, and blogging has a higher failure rate than even restaurants. Yet, an estimated 172,000+ blogs are started every day. Succeeding with blogging can allow writers to grow their influence and be able to generate incom ...
So apparently the (Facebook blue) sky fell and then picked itself back up again, but not before everyone went completely bananas over yet another policy update. It doesn’t really matter what the policy update is this time (although we’ll get to that, and key lessons, soon). The more interesting thing to ponder is why does everyone go bananas? It’s because anyone with an inves ...
This is a guest contribution from Julie Petersen. With so much information on the web these days, the competition for high-quality content is strong – and it’s growing. You can’t always introduce new topics to your target audience, since influential bloggers have already written tons of content on the issues you have in mind.
This is a guest contribution from Leona Henryson. As a blogger, you might spend several hours working on a single post. You search for topic ideas that are trending and relevant to your followers. You spend time researching and narrowing down your topic even further. You write your post, then edit and proofread until it is free from errors.
So apparently you guys were just as confused as the rest of social media with the Facebook brand promotion brouhaha? You loved Laney’s post unpacking that for those of us who had little clue of what was going on. I don’t know about you, but I feel much better after reading it! So much to talk about today, not the least of which some changes at Instagram that look eerily simil ...
Do you update old posts on your blog? Lately I’ve spent quite a bit of time here on ProBlogger in my archives updating old posts – perhaps even more than creating new content for the ProBlogger blog and podcast. It’s something that I’ve done regularly over the years, and a task that I think many blogs could benefit from.
This is a guest contribution from Blogger Legal LLC. In our experience, bloggers tend not to be very familiar with their rights when they enter into a contract with a company. It’s understandable; companies will throw five-page contracts full of legal jargon at you, when all you want to know is “how much will I get paid?” As a result, you might just glance through the agreem ...
This is a guest contribution from Iniobong Eyo. You can admit it. You think the headline is outrageous. Is he in his right mind? In fact, you’re surprised – or even shocked? But you’re reading this anyway. Because it got you thinking: How can I steal my way to content creation success? The truth about original content With well over 150 million blogs online, the blogosphere is a crowded place.
This is a guest contribution from Jason Gracia. As I write these words, dedicated men and women struggle to grow their blogs and they don’t have a clue as to the cause. Could it be effort? Could it be talent? Could it be that just one more course is needed? Could it be that I’m not good enough? Poisonous thoughts like these swirl with enough force to permanently shatter one’s confidence.
This is a guest contribution from writer Lauren Sirt. Writers leave their mark on the world through their words. Whether you’re a journalist, author, blogger, or anything else–your words have power. People read your work and start to think differently. They may begin to avidly follow your writing or oppose your statements altogether.
Happy Saturday! (or Friday, if that’s where you’re at). We’ve been working hard this week on shaking up the content plan around this place so I’m super excited to see where the next few months will take us, and keen to get started. I hope you’re feeling as motivated as I am right now! It’s a nice place to be.

This is a guest contribution from Jonathon Ohayon of Brilliance.com From infographics to Slideshares, articles to memes; marketers and bloggers can never have too much help coming up with ideas for compelling, relevant content. However, ideas can be elusive and trending subject matter can be hard to nail down.
This is a guest contribution from Larry Alton You could be a prominent authority in your industry, with multiple bestselling books and a successful business around your writing; or you could be a novice who just launched their first blogging website – as long as writing is a significant part of your life, there’s one thing you’ll always want: to be a better writer.
So I’ve been experimenting more with Facebook and to be honest I still can’t tell what will work and what won’t at the moment – everything I know has gone out the window! Stuff I think will do well totally flops and some other thing I forgot I scheduled has everyone buzzing. I cannot figure this out for the life of me! Also the Instagram icon changed colours and everyone wigg ...
This is a guest contribution from Jerry Low of Web Hosting Secret Revealed. When it comes to social media website players, Facebook is too huge to be ignored. With over 1 billion daily users, 934 million mobile daily users as of April 2016, one thing is obvious: you simply must market on Facebook if you want to reach highly targeted users.

This is a guest contribution from Anna Johansson. Unfortunately, if you’re an industry expert in construction, finance, software development, or other similar “dry” field, you’ve already been handed the short end of the content stick. Your industry is important, and the subject matter is interesting to you and other industry gurus, but it just isn’t that exciting to the average web user.
