Oh No, Not Another Blogging 101

I thought about creating a series on blogging giving it the ever so creative and unique name of “Blogging 101.” After I thought about it for a while, I realized that I’m no bogging expert. Yes I do blog and yes I do make a penny or two from it but if you’re going to learn how to blog I think he should really learn from the best.

If you haven’t done so already visit the Griz. His blog How to Make Money Online for Beginners is chock full of great information for beginners and veterans alike. His information is free and readily available. You don’t have to buy a book or sign up for membership. You do, however, have to spend a little time reading the tons of information he’s got there.

There, I’ve condensed my Blogging 101 series into three words – Visit the Griz.

    I love your blog, Felicia. Recently started my own and this will be really helpful 🙂 Thanks!

    I find that I am constantly recommending your blog to newbie writers and bloggers. I think you are more than qualified to post a bloggers 101. Thanks for the great tips as always!

      Thanks for the compliment, Elizabeth.

      I think if you take one look at Grizzly’s blog, you’ll see what I mean. He’s doing extremely well with his blog.

      I might be able to give some basic advice, but he’s got the topic pretty well covered.

    Thanks for the reminder about the Griz. He really is the blogging king. But I give you queen status and personally find your blog more user friendly.

    Wicked post – you forgot to mention that it may take the casual visitor to the Griz about a week to escape LOL

    • Felicia November 13, 2009, 6:41 am

      You’re right Lis. I probably shot myself in the foot. Once readers go there, they’ll never come back. 🙂

    With all due respect, there’s a difference between blogging and blogging for money.

    Felicia and Griz give fabulous information about blogging for money. But not all people monetize their blogs. When it comes to just plain blogging (which, of course, can always lead to making some money), the approach is a little different.

    I learned about social networking and blogging from The Blog Squad (Denise Wakeman and Patsi Krakoff) and Connie Ragen Green. Before you blog – for whatever reason – you need to learn the basics (technology, content, and more). So I recommend establishing a foundation before you try to make money from blogging.

    My two cents. 🙂

    Last time I went to Griz’s site for a reading session I almost starved! 😀

    There is a ton for information on that site and most of it is good. Griz is a man and his approach will naturally be different than Felicia’s.

    Both are good, both have different takes on making money on the internet.

    Griz teaches you how to blog for money, Felicia teaches you how to make money with writing on the internet and style to write that can charm the fangs off a snake 😀

    Anyway, love both blogs.

    Soon I am going to be publishing a course on using Wordpress MU for blogging and saving yourself some money while doing it.

    PS: I’m still learning, may be a while. So far so good, my experiment getting targeted Adsense ads on my separate WPMU blogs seems to be working well. I’ll be fine tuning it as I go.

    I’ll be opening up dofollow comments as soon as I get the spam filters in place I want to implement. It took me a week to figure out the basics of what I was running with in regular WP. Wish me luck.

      Elvenrunelord, you’re too sweet! 🙂

      I guess I have a lot of learning to do when it comes to WordPress MU. The first I heard of it was when you posted about it once before. I’m interested in learning more.

      Since you’re going through all of the growing pains, I’ll learn from your experiences. Thanks and good luck with it.

    Hi Felicia,
    Thanks for sharing this resource. I will check it out once am through posting this. However, for the record, and as many of the commenters have stated before me, for me you are Queen of the Blogging world. I have dinner table conversations with DH about what I learnt from you each day, so imagine! Yeah doesn’t say much about my social life, but what the heck!

    Wow…Griz’s blog IS great. Thanks for pointing me to him. BTW, I came upon your blog from a post on another blog. And he was correct about you: you provide great info too. I’ll be a frequent visitor to both you and Griz.

    I’m reading the information now about blogging and is currently setting up an account and make my very first blog but I’m just trying to think of what I want it to be about. Anyways wish me luck and thank you for posting such helpful information!

  • Felicia November 19, 2010, 1:40 pm

    It appears that the Griz’ money making blog is no more. Does anyone know if he created a new blog or was his blog disabled by the Big G?

  • Ignatius November 19, 2010, 4:12 pm

    Hi Felicia,
    See http://internetmarketinglessons.ca/
    for an explanation.

    • Felicia November 19, 2010, 4:25 pm

      Thanks, Ignatius. Pretty interesting. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if Google reinstates his blogger blog.

      • Ira January 5, 2011, 8:47 pm

        Hey Felicia, I ran across this page of yours today, and thought I would let you know that Griz is back on a different page now.


        Thats his new home.

        I know this is an old post and all that but since a lot of people search for Griz’s information, I figured I’d point him out here 😉
