Few tips for a good looking professional blog

This is a guest contribution by Tara Nair. Read more about her in the author bio below the post.

Hello, readers! I am glad to be here to make you aware of some of the facts that we usually neglect while starting on with a blog. I know you become so enthusiastic in the beginning, that what all matters to you is a head-start on the content and run. But hold… take a pause… you sure don’t want to be the only one, present in your blog right? You also want lots & lots of readers to go through your blog and subscribe to it.

Now to make that happen, you also need to give your blog… good-looks, value and your personality. Honestly, as soon as someone hits your page the first impression is the upper fold of your blog i.e. the face of the blog is the one that doesn’t include scrolling down. So let’s get into the depth of the designing part of your blog… what all you need is…

Few tips for a good looking blog design

Great header

There are few elements that will attract the readers and make them more curious about the blog. They are the header tabs and the about column (author in brief). Out of which header is the one that will be sending a loud voice out, about the look and feel of the blog. So make sure that the header sends a clear message to the reader about what does it contains by adding the name and also a tagline that defines the niche of the blog.

The Background

I have seen few of the blogs having starry skies, or a lot of beautiful patterns behind the content. Honestly, though that looks good, but at the same time, it may not give the same feeling to all readers. The background is suggested to be either plain black or plain white… for me it is better to have plain white because it then gives a chance to write with black ink that looks far better than the letters in white. Why plain colours, because it will help the images from content to pop-out and majorly because it makes the content rule the page (prime motto) not the background prints.

Your Face

There are a lot of blogs out there; that doesn’t have the face of the blogger in their widget section. Not even in the about page. That is a big drawback since people won’t be able to connect with the blogger. Also, his/her thoughts or knowledge that is shared in the blog will not win the trust and will signal the brain with a flag of fake. If that blog is your identity, then sure you must have your face pictured on it too. Am sure some of those blogs are getting a lot of hits indeed, but then your personality will remain hidden till you show your face.

Few tips for a good looking blog 101

Width of Picture v/s Width of Content

Though it is not at all necessary that your blog post must contain a lot of pictures,  at least one good-quality photo at the beginning of the story will be of great help to the readers. Why? Because an image or a video has the power to drag the complete attention of the reader and make them glued to your content. Also, I have been through so many blogs that have the pictures that don’t match the width of the content. It looks pretty unorganized and clumsy. If you are a serious blogger and want to earn from your blog n all, then better it would be to take the shot appropriately or do the graphic picture according to the width of the content.

The Power of Font

Yes, this means exactly the same as it sounds. The fonts have the power to make the show go bright n shine, or it will be a complete flop. I went across few of the blogs that have coloured fonts, that means… my friend… I will be out of there within seconds, and the same feeling is what the crowd gets.

Few tips for a good looking blog 1005

If you want a particular  word or sentence to stand out in the content, then go for bold, not even italics. Also, better to use not more than three different fonts. One for the topic, other for the content and the third shall be for a disclaimer or a tip or anything that comes at the bottom of the content with star marks.

Even though these are pretty strong points that a lot of internationally known bloggers stick with, but as they say, there are no rules to creativity and rules are made to be broken. So well, if you have something that is far better to come up with, other than the ones that have been shared here, then please do try them out and ask your readers about their views on it. Trial n Error must go on. I hope this post helps you in a lot many terms, still… if there’s anything in your mind with regards to this, then please do reach out to me in the comments. By the way, what are your thoughts on the strength of having a good-looking blog? Please do let me know. Thanks for having me here. Enjoy!!

Ideas for writing a blog post

Sometimes we all get stuck to get ideas for writing a blog post. It happens with most writers and bloggers time and again. Are you worried about the next topic you want to publish in your blog? If you are worried, then this post will give you some topic ideas as I am sharing twenty-five ideas to create content for your blog. This post may not be useful for a much-experienced blogger, but I bet this will do wonders for newbies in the field.

blog post ideas 2

#1.Watching YouTube videos

If you are a technical blogger, it is a very good idea to watch as many youTube videos as possible. For example, if you watch a video showing how to post simultaneously on Facebook and Twitter, you will get the idea to write a better post on the same topic.

#2.Write about something in your life

We all get stuck at times without getting any topic to write. We call it writers block. When you search the internet, you will get some ideas to tackle writer’s block. Even if you are stuck with writer’s block, I am sure that you will be having a stock of subjects that you can write in your blog from your own life. It may not sound okay to write in your technology blog, but it can be a best fit on your personal or some other niche blogs that suit your style of writing.

#3.Ideas from infographics

The internet is full of infographics. If you have been in the blogging field for more than a year, it is sure that you might have come across a lot of infographics.  Here, I am not telling you to publish the infographic but to share the ideas behind the infographic in the form an article in your blog. But, make sure that you write all the contents in your own style.

#4.Review products

Reviewing products is another choice you can rely upon while writing blog posts. You can review products on your own niche. A technical blogger can review products like a mobile phone, camera, etc., etc.

You can read one of my reviews in this blog here.

#5.Reviewing services offered by an organization

Reviewing services offered by a company or organization is a common topic in most of the travel blogs we read on the internet. You might have to write a review of the hotel you stayed explaining the quality of service that provide you. It can be another service provided by someone else like an advertising agency.

You can read one of my reviews here.

#6.Ideas from the comments

You can get plenty of new ideas from comments on the blogs on your own niche. I came across few situations where the query of a particular reader encourages me to write a new post from the idea that I got from his or her comment.


Interviewing other bloggers on your niche is a great source for creating more contents in your blog. But, it is always better to make sure that you are only interviewing bloggers with a certain level of quality and fame. Otherwise, you will end up boring your readers with more interviews that may not be interesting for them.  So, make sure to choose the interview posts with great care. Read

Read one of my interviews here.

#8.Write a list post

List posts are the favorites of any people. Even when people read a newspaper or magazine, they like to read the list post. We know that people have no time to read a detailed post as they are too busy in their life with other things. But, list posts are an attraction for most type of readers even when they are busy.

#9.Write about your blogging journey

People like to know about your blogging journey. They like to compare themselves with other successful bloggers as they like to know whether they succeed themselves as a blogger. So, when you write about yourself describing your success and failures, it will make a good read for your readers.

Blog post ideas 1

#10.Publish an infographic

When you continue as a blogger for at least a year and if your Alexa rank is fairly good, I am damn sure that you might have approached by many bloggers and graphic designers for publishing their infographics in your blog. Try to utilize those opportunities if you find that the infographics they provide contain relevant and good quality messages.

#11.Create a post about the traffic report in your blog

Bloggers and those who own online businesses are eager to know about the methods of improving their traffic to their website. If you can provide your readers with a traffic report explaining the methods how you increased your traffic status, it can attract a big percentage of your readers.

#12.Make some predictions

Predicting something that is going to happen in future is a source of interest to your readers. You can be able to create posts predicting something relevant to your niche.

#13.Create a list of blogging mistakes

No one in the blogging arena did blogging without making any mistake. Most of the bloggers start blogging as a trial and error method. They do it and then realize the mistake they made so that they will correct it afterward. Sometimes the mistakes we made as a newbie blogger cannot be corrected. For example, when I choose the domain name Digitaldimensions4u, I was not much aware of the concept of keywords and other related areas of blogging. So I made the mistake of not choosing a proper name for the site as well as adding the number 4 in the domain name.

#14.Publish an income report

When I started blogging as a newbie, I used to wonder why people publish their income report on their blogs. For me, it appeared as a show off from the author. But, late realized the fact that income reports act an inspiration for another blogger who follow us. Also, it is a must for attracting prospective customers or buyers when we use certain affiliate programs in our blog.

Ideas for blog post

#15.Create seasonal content

Although creating seasonal content is not a good idea for many of the niches of blogging, you can do that in some blogs like a personal blog or travel blog or lifestyle blog. I created a short post on a Mother’s day that look awkward in a blog that contain more of technical stuff. Even though I know it is not a right fit for this blog, I still keep that in this blog. I did that during the initial stages of my blogging. It could have been a better fit in a personal blog.

#16.Create profiles of influential people

I always like to read the biographies of influential and famous personalities from various walks of life. It is natural that everyone like to know more about the personal details of someone who achieved success in a field that they are interested. If you are a football fan, you will definitely be curious to know the personal stories of your favorite players. I bet it is a matter of much interest to your readers in your niche. Click the link here to see how Atish Ranjan, an expert blogger from India created a profile of Sundar Pichai, the current Google Inc CEO, in his blog.

#17.Make some video of your own

Some people have good presentation skills when it comes to making video presentations. Gone are the days where blogging is confined mainly to writing blog posts. A blog may not be fully acceptable for few of your audience if there are no videos in it. So, it is better to have few videos in your blog. Even if you are not interested or don’t have time to make long videos, a few short videos will make an impact on your readers. Watch this video I created for a review of Tabtor Math where my daughter is explaining a little bit about its use.

#18.Use Quora for ideas

Are you registered with Quora? If you are not, do it as soon as possible. The site can provide may provide you with a valuable source of information that can help you to create new contents for your website or blog. If you are looking for traffic, it is good to leave comments on Quora so that you can add links to your blog post related to the same topic. I am sure that you will get hundreds of new ideas from this site if you go through the questions and comments in this very useful website.

#19.Write review of a movie

I did come across plenty of blogs where people write reviews about a movie they had seen recently. Even though there are blogs that are specially meant for reviewing movies, a few movie reviews in you blog can attract your audience. Also, this type of reviews makes your readers know your interests, likes and dislikes in a particular area of interest. So, why can’t you review a movie in your blog and share your opinion about it?

Movie review blog post ideas

#20.Promote other bloggers post in your blog

We all promote other bloggers posts in social media. What about promoting useful and quality posts from other people in your own blog. Yes, you can do that in your blog. Give an introduction or a brief explanation of the post describing why the post is so important citing reasons and add the post as a link. Here, always make sure that you give credit to the author in a proper manner. Bilingual writer and blogger Philip Verghese Ariel do promote a lot of posts like this in his own blog.

#21.Write a list of bloggers you find interesting or important for you

Make a list of bloggers whom you admire or interact with in day to day life. Create a short profile for each of them in your post. I had a similar post on this blog, and I would like to update that with more bloggers soon.This kind of posts will attract the attention of fellow bloggers and hence may lead to finding a good friend, co-author or someone who can join you as a business partner.

Read a similar post here now,

#22. A comparison post

I bet we all have the have the experience of using two products from different brands for the same purpose. Then why can’t you write a comparison post? Read this post ‘MAC Versus PC’ where I am comparing my views and experience of using both MAC and PC.

#23. Prospects and Consequences

Another topic idea that you can utilize in your blog is writing about the prospects and consequences of a product, service or an event. It is always easy to write about the advantages and disadvantages of using a product or service. When I wrote a post about the advantages of blogging, I actually included some of its disadvantages too. But, I never like to add something negative about blogging in this blog and like to include only the positive and inspiring part of it. Hence, I edited and removed that part from the post.

#24. Write a short story

Do you write short stories? I am not a good storyteller. Still I published a short story in this blog. If you are good at writing short fiction, you can publish it as a post and ask for your reader’s opinion on it. Here, no need to say that a short story looks awkward in a technology related blog. But, if your niche suits that type of posts,  you can utilize the tactics of adding short stories at times.

Read one of my short stories here so that you can leave an opinion on the comments column below.

#25. List of motivational quotes

Write a list of quotes from famous and inspiring people. Your audience will like it as they all need some motivation and encouragement to succeed in whatever they do in their life.

Blog post ideas for all

Bottom line

I would like to update this post and make it a list of 100 blogs post ideas as soon as possible. Hence, feel free to share more ideas for creating contents in the comments column and so that I can update it as a list of hundred ideas very soon. Your sincere co-operation is welcome in this regard.

For your success.

How to earn money and traffic from Traffic Monsoon


Some of you reading this blog are familiar with the concepts of Traffic Monsoon. Still I know there are many who are unaware of this advertising company. In this article, I am familiarising you with the basic concepts of Traffic Monsoon and how to make money using the same.

What is traffic monsoon and what are the services it provides?

Traffic monsoon is basically an advertising company that shares its sales revenue with its members. When you purchase an Ad pack from Traffic Monsoon, you are actually buying an advertisement service that helps you to get more exposure for your business website. It also offers a Pay to click Advertisement service to its members. Remember it is an advertising company and not an investment company.

Let me explain the services it offers in a more detailed way.

Cash Links

cash links traffic monsoon

When you join Traffic Monsoon, you will get the option to use the cash links. Cash links are those Ads with a value ranging from $0.001 to $0.01 and when you click on those links your account gets credited with the corresponding value of the cash link. Here there is a condition you need to follow so that you can be qualified to get payments from the clicks you make on the cash links. The condition is nothing but you need to click at least 10 Ads from the traffic exchange every 24 hours. The site has a clock counter that display how much time left for you to go for the next Ad clicks so that you can make sure that you made the minimum ten clicks in the last 24 hours. There is no membership fee to join this service. But, if you would like to make some money using Traffic Monsoon alongside with the promotional activities for your site, you need to buy the Ad Packs. Let’s read further to know more about Ad Packs.

Ad Packs

The main purpose of using Traffic Monsoon is to promote your online business. You might have a business website that is not having much publicity and traffic. Then Traffic Monsoon is the best companion for you to promote your website. If you buy an Ad pack worth $50, you are in effect promoting your website by having the banner of your website getting exposed to a large number of new clients. In this way, your business may get more leads and conversions. Here, when you buy an Ad pack, you are also eligible for the revenue share from the company. Hence, you get $55 on the fifty-fifth day of the purchase of a single Ad pack.

Referral Commissions

You will get a commission of 10% every time one of your referral buy and new Ad pack from you. For example, if someone buy 10 Ad pack from your affiliate link that worth $500, your account will be credited with $50 immediately.

Also, there is 100% referral commission you can earn from the clicks by your referrals on the cash links. This commission turns out to be a  small amount but if you get a large number of referrals, it can be a sizable income too.

Is traffic Monsoon a scam?

I never say that traffic monsoon is a scam like many people and reviews say (see my income report given along with this review). The founder of Traffic monsoon, Charles Scoville had allegations in his name that one of his previous online business ventures was a scam.Truly speaking, I don’t have any any experience of using his previous websites other than Traffic monsoon. So, it is not possible for me to comment on something that I had not experienced in real life. But, I am using Traffic Monsoon since the 20th of July 2015 till date, hence sharing my experience here.

Probably, Scoville’s previous business might have failed due to other reasons that are not in any way intended to cheat its customers. He is now regularly conducting the business meetings with its members at various locations around the world and hence people are more convinced that Traffic Monsoon is a legitimate business. If it is not legitimate, they may not like to have regular meetings with its members from different places around the world.

Even if you are completely sure that it is not a scam, you may have some fear of losing money in these type of business. Okay! I can understand that. Who like to lose their hard earned money from their pocket? You don’t want to take the risk with your money. Still, if you take a small risk, you can make income from Traffic Monsoon. Let me explain how I am doing that.

How to make money online from Traffic Monsoon?

In the starting I bought 10 Ad packs that cost me $500 and whenever my account gets credited with $50, I buy one more Ad pack, and this process continues. Now, I am going to withdraw the initial amount (i.e., $500) I paid from my account in a few days but still carry on buying new Ad packs with the remaining amount that I will get in my account. By continuing this process, I will buy more and more Ad packs and hence more income. Here is the screenshot of my income earned on 13/09/2105 from the date (20/07/2015) I joined Traffic Monsoon. So, it is exactly the earnings in about 53 days time.

Traffic monsoon

You can also try to earn some income  buying just one Adpack so that when you get $50 in your account, you can buy one more pack from the account balance keeping the rest amount in the account. You have to keep  on doing this step by adding one Adpack after the other hence earning some income from that.

Note:-If you are using Google Adsense in your blog and is a great source of income, please note that the Google Adsense policy requires you not to use any traffic exchange programs on your website or blog. So it is better to make sure which works better for you before joining Traffic monsoon.

Here is the screen shot showing the income earned till 05/10/2015.

Traffic monsoon

If you are a blogger, it is not a bad idea for you to join as a free member so that you may gain  more exposure for your website or blog.

Most of these type of business are considered to be risky considering their online nature in general.Still it is possible to make money online from this venture if you are ready to take the little risk. If you follow the way I mentioned, you can get your invested money back and the rest all you getting will be your profit. But, make sure you are paying only that much amount you can afford to lose.

Power Affiliate Club(PAC) – Review

Power Affiliate Club - Members Helping Members

Successful blogging is always a group activity where we involve in blogging communities, the most recent one I joined is the PAC or Power Affiliate Club. You may never make any success in your online business or blogging without the help of others. Here networking with other bloggers and readers plays a big role in promoting your blog or business. Nobody will realize this fact during the initial stages of their blogging journey. But, in a matter of time they all realize it if they are serious about blogging and soon start joining communities.

If you are into blogging for at least a year, you might be familiar with few communities that promote bloggers and their blogs. Probably, you may be very much active in some communities. Some of you might have left some communities due to lack of time to involve with more communities. I never say any of the blogging community is bad or good as anyone can learn at least few new lessons such online communities.

You may get more traffic from one community. Another community may help you acquire more technical skills with the support of its members. Some other communities may help you getting more products for review in your blog. Now, let’s see what PAC can offer you.

What makes PAC different from other communities?

Power affiliate club review

The most important thing that the PAC is different from other communities is the provision to add your affiliate links to it. Perhaps you may be struggling to get some sales from your affiliate links on your blog. You may be trying different affiliate links in your blog and yet not able to make many sales from it. PAC finds a solution for this by helping each other and buying affiliate products from its members, thereby getting some commission to the members involved.

What are the benefits you gain by joining PAC?

The members of this community are so approachable for any help and will help you in one way or the other to promote you and your online business.

There are always contests going on in the community like the top author, top member, top commentator and so on. The winners of these contests are promoted by adding their links on the home page of the website so that more members will start commenting and interacting in those blogs of the winners.

Also, the link to our Facebook Fan page will be added to the community website so that there are more interactions in that too from the members.

Interview with Nisha Pandey, a talented professional blogger and founder of Seotechyworld

NISHA PANDEY INTERVIEW1 PROBLGGER AND SEO EXPERTHi Nisha, Thank you very much for sparing  your valuable time with us for the interview and it is a great pleasure for me to introduce one of the leading female bloggers and SEO expert from India to my readers.

Reji: Before I start with the questions related to your niche, could you please give a brief introduction of yourself to my readers in case a few of them may not be familiar with you?

Nisha Pandey: Hello everyone, I am Nisha Pandey – a professional blogger and SEO professional from Mumbai, the commercial capital of India. I entered the world of online marketing when I joined an SEO trainee course and then got placed with a leading SEO firm.

My blogging career started in 2013 when I launched SEOTechyWorld.com. Since then I have gone on to launch other blogging platforms including How-to-make.in and Aappleiosnews.com

Reji: I did a writing course from Writers Bureau, U.K., to improve my writing skills and that eventually lead me to start blogging very accidently. Similarly, do you have any particular incident that made you enter the field of blogging?

Nisha Pandey: That’s good to know! Yes, I too have a story, and a series of events led me to start with blogging. I already had the background in SEO career, but it was during the early days of my motherhood that I came across the idea of starting to blog. I had lots of time at my hands during this time and spent it reading a lot about blogging. I started with SEOTechyBlog.com, and gradually things evolved!

Reji: Could you explain some of your strengths that really helped you in blogging?

Nisha Pandey: My background in SEO and my interest in tech and gadgets are perhaps the most important factors that have helped me excel in blogging. Besides, consistency is another big factor that has helped me succeed so far. I think that is the most important aspect to blogging successfully!

Reji: Blogging is a very time-consuming process that I am practically experiencing now. So, how do you manage your time and prioritise your blogging activities alongside your family responsibilities especially when you have a small child to look after at home?

Nisha Pandey: You are absolutely right. Blogging is a time-consuming job – especially during the initial phase when you have to build your ‘brand’ and work hard to get those first few visits!

Being a mother is a full-time job in itself, but setting a fixed amount of time at night has proven to be a good strategy for me. Now that my blogs are slightly set and generating a decent amount of traffic, it’s all about publishing the posts periodically.

Reji: What is the biggest challenge you face being a top female Tech and SEO blogger from India?

Nisha Pandey: I wouldn’t say that being a female tech blogger from India has raised any related challenges for me. But as a young mother, it has been difficult to maintain a balance between family and work life. It was initially challenging, but after some time things became normal and I was able to give proper time to all aspects of my life.


Reji:  For me, I got a large number of friends from different parts of the world after I get into blogging. Similarly, what do you feel the biggest difference in your life post-blogging?

Nisha Pandey: I would like to say that blogging may be something hard to start with, but there are ‘online social’ privileges to it too. You get to make friends from all across the world while building a network. The best thing about our job is that it helps us connect across borders.

Blogging has certainly changed my perspective of the world now that I have so many friends from other countries. What I have learned from it is that there are so many good people out there. Never hesitate to ask – there are so many wonderful people out there who also want to network with you.

Reji:  Could you name few bloggers who encouraged, motivated and helped you to promote your blogging related activities?

Nisha Pandey: There are so many bloggers out there and so many who have encouraged me! It will not be fair to claim that any one of them is better than another one. Everyone have their unique traits and strengths, and I appreciate and respect each one of them.

Still my inspiration somehow comes from Harleena Mam of aha-now.com and Harsh Agarwal of shoutmeloud.com. They have been innovative, and I have learnt a lot from them.

Reji:  If given a choice, do you like to be known as a blogger? Please tell me the reasons behind that?

Nisha Pandey: Certainly, why not! I am a full-time blogger. Besides, I have a strong passion for tech and SEO related topics, the web, the latest gadgets and technologies that are making things easier and faster for everyone.

Reji:  Where do you see yourself in five years from now as a Pro-blogger?

Nisha Pandey: That is a difficult question. But I have a few plans down the line – I already have started few new blogs How-to-make.in and http://iOSpit.com. So my focus will be to develop and build them further. Probably there will be more launches in the near future!

Reji:  What would you prioritize? Readers? Content? SEO? Traffic?

Nisha Pandey: That’s another tough question, but I would say the answer is simple – everything is equally important. One follows the other, and it is a kind of a cycle. We bloggers need to start with high-quality content and SEO, but once traffic and readers start coming in, it becomes a cycle.

Many times I am developing new content to address the needs of my readers!

Reji: Could you explain the best social media strategy that works well for you in terms of bringing traffic to your blog?

Nisha Pandey: Best Social media strategy is: share others posts as much as possible than yours. Use 70:30 rule Or 80:20 rule for social sharing. Share 8 times others and 2 times yours in a single day. You can use this for all social media sites. It really helps. This is the proven technique from so many bloggers.

Reji: What do you think are the few best tips you can give to newbie bloggers in terms of SEO strategy in blogging?

Nisha Pandey: Blogging is all about keeping things as organic as possible. SEO is crucial too, but there are limitations – use minimal keyword density, write only high quality content, write for the readers and not for search engines, write relevant content to your niche, and gradually also start writing on topics that your readers want to read about or query about!

7 reasons why you should have a personal blog alongside your niche blog

Thousands of new blogs are created every day. Why so much of people are into blogging now? Are they attracted to it because of the benefits it may offer to you in your personal life as well as for any business you run? Do they think it is an easy way to make money online? But you need to survive those crucial and toughest period until you make your blog successful in terms of generating income.

Oh! Sorry, I am not here to discuss anything that help you earn money online. I am running away from my points. Actually, I am here to discuss the benefits of having a personal blog alongside your primary blog that is a niche blog.

1.Write any subject of your choice

With a personal blog, the major advantage, anyone can enjoy, is the variety of topics they can write. Do you think your knowledge and ideas are only limited to a few particular area? That may never be the real fact. Everyone will have their views and opinions on what they see, hear and experience in their day to day life. How can you write something about your recent holiday to ‘Gods own country‘ in your technical blog? No need to say that you can’t write about the cake decoration ideas your wife or mother have in mind in one of your blogs dedicated to gadgets. Even a Christmas wish on my blog sounds to be unprofessional to many readers. I am pretty sure that having a personal blog will let me enjoy the freedom of writing about anything under the sun, as well as anything above the sun.


2.Brand yourself as an authority

A personal blog can make you brand yourself as an authority in a chosen field. You may have a niche blog or a business blog of your own. But, that may not help you brand yourself. Here, comes the advantage of using your personal blog to brand yourself as an authority in a topic or field you are good enough.

3.Platform to create an online business
When you start a personal blog, the number of audiences you may have is limited to few people who are close to you. It may not be easy for you to find some motivation to continue writing such a blog as a personal diary. I know few of those people reading this blog now might have experienced that is some point of their blogging journey. Here, I suggest you to keep motivated since you cannot rule out the fact that your personal blog may soon develop into a money making website if you carefully take the necessary and right steps. There are a lot of instances where people turned their personal blogs into high earning travel blog. Also, you might land up getting the chances of selling products that are related to the topics you are writing.

4.Improve your writing skill and style

When you are writing a blog in a particular niche, you may not be able to adopt different styles in your writing. For example, when you are writing a blog about technology or mobile phones, you can adopt only a style that is very much suitable for that kind of niche. The same author may have the ability to write a humour article that he or she will not be able to implement in a technical blog. A personal blog gives you the flexibility to try different styles of writing since you may not be posting similar kind of topics every time you publish a new blog post. Today, you may publish a humour story and tomorrow you may write something else.

5.Use your blog as a personal diary

A personal blog can be used as your personal diary if you wish. It is all up to you to decide that. It may not sound good to many people as they are not interested in revealing their personal life to others. Still for many people, they like the idea of boasting about their latest holiday destination of the brand new car they own. It acts as a medium for such people to express anything of your choice. Also, it acts similar to a social media platform where they can update all the events (happenings) in their life so that their friends and loved ones will notice that.

6.Improve traffic and ranking for your main blog

Imagine you have a personal blog with a good number of followers and traffic. Then it may help you increase the traffic and SEO ranking of your other main blog if you can make successful links to each website on a large number of articles.

7.More networking opportunities with bloggers of different niches

When you are involved with only a particular niche of blogging, you may get the chance to interact with people who are running blogs in the same niche as yours. It may not be the case with an immensely successful personal blog. Since the blog is a personal one, the followers of that blog may include readers of different niches. Hence, the chances of interacting with people from different walks of life around the globe are more compared to your niche blog.


It is always better to have a personal blog alongside your main blog so that you can utilize all its possibilities to achieve more heights in blogging. I would like to hear your views and opinions on this topic especially if you have a personal blog or thinking of starting one soon.

Thank you for spending time with Digital dimensions. Have a great blogging journey ahead.

Review of Infolinks, the Google Adsense alternative


The most important part that I like about blogging is reviewing products or service that I use in my daily life. When you share your experience of using a product/service with others, they may grab some new ideas, and you will get the satisfaction of sharing something worthwhile for others or your valuable readers.

In this post, I am sharing my experience of using Infolinks. I believe most of the readers of this blog know what Infolinks is. Still I am giving a small explanation here for the sake of those who are not familiar with Infolinks.

What is Infolinks and why you should use it in your blog?

Infolinks is an in-text PPC ad program that allows you to monetize a website or blog. Even though it is an in-text ad program, the most important feature of this ad program is the availability of five different types of add units that we can choose to use on a website. Before going to more details on Infolinks, it will be interesting for you to watch a short video about Infolinks.

When you compare Infolinks with the other type of advertisements of the similar kind, you can easily notify the following advantages over its other counterparts that may tempt you to use it in your blog.

>Getting approval as a publisher is easier.

>Threshold limit of payment is $50 when you use PayPal or Payoneer as your mode of payment.

>Infolinks ads are easy to customize. You can have the options to    turn on and turn off the ads according to your needs that you like.

>It is compatible with AdSense and other ad networks.

>Infolinks Ads are highly compatible on mobile devices.

>If you have any issues with your AdSense account, it acts as a better alternative.

Five different type of Ad units

1.Intext Ads


In this type of ad, Infolinks hyperlinks the keywords on your blog with the most suitable advertisement matching it. The ad is customizable, and you can change the colours. Here you can have the choice to choose the number of ads you need to show ranging up to 12 in number. Even though it is possible to choose up to 12 ads here, it is better to choose the number of ads depending upon the word length of a blog post. Otherwise, it may annoy your readers when they come across more number of Ads on a single page.

2.Infold Ads


This ad is supposed to be the most converting one. It appears as a popping and floating banner at the end portion of the website visible to the reader when they open a site. (Refer figure above)

3.Intag Ads


This type of ad displays ad related to the top keywords in the website. This add is customizable, and you can easily change the colour of the ad as well as the position of the ad.

4.Inframe Ads


It is a display of floating ad banners at those spaces where the website have unused margins like the one shown in the figure above.

5.Inscreen Ads


It is a display of pop-up ads that appear as shown in the figure when you access a page of the blog or website. You can customize this add to control its display.

 Drawbacks of Infolinks

>The Inframe Ads may not show up in the website even when it is active. It seems to be obstructive and overlapping at times. Still the On/Off options is a great help to run the other type of Ads even if we turn off the Inframe Ads.

>It seems that some of the advertisements they show as Intext Ads are not relevant to the topic of the content. It may not be of interest to the readers. So Ad relevancy is one thing that needs to be improved.

Men and fashion blogging

(This post is a guest contribution from Shiwangi Srivastava, one of the leading female bloggers from India. Read more about her  and her blogs in her author bio.)


Did you ever come across fashion blogs run by men? Probably you might have seen one or two on the internet so far. Am I right? Men are always interested in other niches of blogging.Even if they see few fashion blogs on the internet, they may not be interested in reading such a blog instead of reading their favourite niches in blogging like technology, politics, social media, news, business etc, etc.

Why men are not interested in running a Fashion Blog?

Fashion blog niche overcrowded, and its competitive space is mostly captured by women. Even if there are men involved in creating a fashion blog, they keep forward women to highlight their business as they are not comfortable in presenting themselves in promoting female-oriented stuff like fashion, outfits, beauty products and makeup. As far as the masculine items are concerned in blogs, they do not hesitate to brand the blog by their name. Why this barrier in the online world?

Whereas in the offline world you see a lot of men, running a beauty parlour, fashion outfits store and they are eventually fashion designers on the go. They never qualm about their masculine images. Their heart is so much into fashion and leaves several women behind in this profession. These men are flaunting themselves not only in branding and marketing the men’s item, but they are equally involved in women’s ethnic and western wear. In fact I believe men can describe better what suits a woman more. From her outfits to her makeup, men can judge better and analyse what is working well on her. So I think they should not remain hiding behind the scene instead be a curtain raiser and expose publicly as a fashion blogger or the owner of a fashion blog.

Fashionbloggingformen.jpg (2)

Some effective tips for men to become a good fashion blogger.

•First you need to create a blog that is different from everyone else. Be different and more perceptive in being particular about your choice rather than following others footsteps.

•You need to identify your audience and their requirements from you. Be analytical enough in this that your readers want a book or launching of collections from your end.

•Build your community in Instagram. Instagram is a source for fetching more traffic to your blog. Since fashion blogs are more pictorial, you will get more exposure in branding you and your blog. Interactions become easier when you use Instagram for fashion and style blogging.

Content is always king. If you want to present your skill as a fashion blogger only being pictorial is not sufficient. You need to decorate your blog with quality and attractive content for drawing the attention of your audience so that they can relate more with you. Focus on building engaging content for six months at least then ocean of opportunity will land, and brands will beckon you.

•With the right attitude and appealing personality, you can move your audience. Your picture says a lot about you and your products. There should have a deep connection between you and your camera. You should be camera friendly to present your correct attitude publicly. If men are running women’s product blog then naturally he will not showcase himself for that. In that case, he will put women’s images. But when he is branding a product for men, he can present himself.

Fashion blogging is definitely for men too

There is no doubt blogging is booming fast, and fashion blogging apparently has become a good medium of business. Bloggers today managed to gain several followers and huge command over readership almost becoming like a celebrity. There is a strong bond between bloggers and brand, brand needs bloggers for the endorsement and publicity as bloggers have thousands of followers and have a good rapport with viewers. Brand wants a shout, and that shout is provided by bloggers. Similarly, Fashion bloggers are kith and kin for the Fashion Brands to target audience.

Bloggers are the sum of skills in modelling, acting, photography, videography, style, entertainment and presentation skills. I know few of you who are reading this post may have some or all of the skills mentioned above. Blogging is a platform where you can showcase your skills. With the extensive use of the internet, social media, and blogs especially Vlogs (Video blogging), there are more chances for self-promoting your skills. During the recent years you might have noticed that many actors and singers got their chance to make themselves noticed for greater success due to the YouTube videos they created either by themselves or their friends or family created for them.


Here, my point of view is that more men should start considering fashion blogging as an option while deciding a niche for blogging. They should not kick their opportunities away with a concept in mind that the fashion blogging is only meant for their female counterparts.

Here is a list of few fashion blogs that you can have for reference if you are interested in starting one.


2.what’s he wearing?


4.Ape to Gentleman


6.Stylehighness.com (India)


A lot of doors are open for you to make a great career if you have those talents related to fashion industry. Apart from choosing tech blogs or similar niches as an automatic choice for men, they should also try their hand in a fashion niche blog and find the new way of branding.One thing is true that fashion bloggers who want fame and fortune right from their beginning stage is next to impossible. There are too much media chasing and ambitious social climbing. I wish fashion bloggers would slow down a bit and enjoy the beauty, peace and joy of creativity through their blogs.

How to make money from different niches of blogging

Make money blogging

Many of the newbie bloggers are unaware that they can generate income or make money from their blog. Some people start writing blogs as they are too much interested in showcasing their talents in writing, and they are never behind money.

In this article, I am trying to cover income generating ideas for six different niches of blogging that include technical, travel, fashion, sports, photography and personal blog. The aim of this post is to give anyone (mostly for the newbie bloggers) an overall idea of the various ways by which they can generate income from a blog. Let me first start with the case of a technical blog.

1.How to make money from your technical blog.

 There are numerous methods by which you can make money from your technical blog.

> Have advertisements on your blog

Once your blog grow out into one having sufficient amount of traffic, you can try for contextual ads like Google Adsense in your blog. There are various other alternative platforms of ads are available like the Infolinks, Chitika, etc. You can also use Yahoo Publisher once your traffic on the blog is high enough for that.

Sign up here for  Google Adsense.

>Reviewing products on your niche

Product reviews are another source of income for your blog if you are interested in continuously reviewing different products on your blog. In the initial stages, you may just wonder what products to start with for the review. Don’t worry. Start with those products that you use in your daily life like your smartphone. Once your blog gain enough reputation, you can have the options to get products for review from websites that provide you the products for reviewing.

>Use affiliate programs on your blog

Start using affiliate programs from Amazon and E-bay that will help you earn a sizable income if you can drive enough traffic to your blog and sell your products.

Blogs from home

>Be a blog consultant

When you reach a certain level in blogging after a period, you will gain more knowledge about the subject that you write. Once you prove that you are a master in the topics, it is the time to start thinking of making yourself available as a blog consultant.

You can avail the services of an excellent blog consultant here for making your blog a great success.

>Become a freelance writer/ghostwriter

You know that millions of websites are there on the internet. The owners or those who are running these websites need contents for their websites in various niches or topics. If you can find some time and have the talent to pen down quality articles, you can be a freelance writer or ghostwriter providing articles for them.

You can contact here a blogger who will do freelance as well as ghostwriting for you.

>Selling websites

There are a lot of web entrepreneurs who intentionally make websites to sell for a profit. This option is a better fit for technical bloggers than bloggers in any other niche. There are websites like Flippa.com that you can utilise for this purpose.

2.How to make money from your travel blog?

When I started blogging, I was just wondering how these travel bloggers make money from their blog? I was so curious to know how they met their travel expenses. Later when I got the opportunity to interact with more bloggers, I found out my answers for the sources from which a travel blogger can earn money.

travel blogging

Most of the travel bloggers start writing about the local places first. Their blogs may not give the impression of a quality one in the beginning stages. When more and more contents are added to it, people and organizations related to travel may start noticing the site and hence more traffic to the blog. From this stage, a travel blogger can start thinking of seriously monetizing their blogs starting with advertisements like Google Adsense, Infolinks, Chitika and that similar kind.

Sign up for chitika ads here.

You may just wonder whether there is any more source to earn income from a travel blog.  Even I was thinking the same way like you when I landed in U.K for the first time and seeing a lot of travel blogs and fashion blogs on the internet. The curiosity why the people here are more interested in travel blogs made me have a small research on the topic. Also, I had interacted with many travel bloggers to have more money making ideas from their blog. So here are the few ways by which a travel blogger can earn money.

>Sponsored posts

Sponsored posts are a source of income for most of the travel bloggers worldwide. Perhaps, some of you reading this post may not know much about sponsored posts. Hence, I am giving a small definition here for those who are new to the concept of sponsored post.

A sponsored blog post is a post written by you or by an advertiser for promoting a product or service and with the condition that you will get paid for publishing such post in your blog.

>Affiliate marketing

When you are doing affiliate marketing as a travel blogger, you may not be always selling a product but referring some service. For example, you may write a review about a good hotel that you stayed. Visitors to your blog may use the links in the blog to book the hotel and hence you may get a commission.

>Sell your products on the blog

After few of travel blogging, you can have travel related items that you can sell on your blog. For example, you can make e-books or CD’s describing tours to few particular destinations you travelled. It may serve as a source of information for the best and cheap airline details, better accommodation facilities and much more.

>Speaking at conferences

After you achieve great success as a travel blogger, you might get opportunities to speak at conferences. If you are a good public speaker, try to polish up your skills. You might even get a chance to appear as a television presenter for travel shows.

Travel blog

>Mentoring and coaching

Like any other niches in blogging, new travel bloggers like to have mentors and coaches. If you are into blogging for at least six to seven months, you might know the importance of having a mentor to help you. Always keep that option in mind and work towards it when your blog reach to the next higher levels in terms of traffic and other rankings.

>Run a travel agency alongside your blog

You might have acquired vast knowledge and experience after travelling to numerous tourist destinations around the world. What else you need to run a travel agency alongside your blog to help your customers (your readers are now your customers) to plan their journeys in a better way.

>Freelance writing projects

While you are writing your blog, you may get chances to write for different projects like writing for a well-established travel magazine. It is not a bad idea spending time for writing one or two articles in a week for established publications.

>Create videos of your travel

It seems easy to create a How-to video for a technical blog if you have the presentation skills as well as good knowledge of the subject. But creating videos of a tourist destination can be done only when we are at that particular location. If you are a well-established travel blogger, it is not a bad idea to have a small film crew while travelling. Filming your journeys may be easier if you are doing travel blogging as a husband-wife pair. You cannot rule out the chances that your travel videos might be used in one of those reputed television travel shows.

3.How to make money from your fashion blog?

Fashion blogging is a big trend among teenagers especially in countries like U.S.A. A quick search on the internet will reveal you an idea about the large number of fashion blogs created by teenagers. Like travel blogging, you may not expect that a fashion blog can be used as a source of income. It may never give you the impression that someone can make money from it. Only when you are associated with blogging for a considerable amount of time, you will realize the true earning potential of a fashion blog.



Advertisements are a common source of income for bloggers of any niche. The only difference is the type of advertisement that suits your niche. If you are a fashion blogger, the type of advertisement you can have on your blog should be related to fashion. An advertisement showing the latest tablets may look awkward in a fashion blog. Similarly, an advertisement showing latest trends in clothing will look awkward in a technical blog.

>Sell your products

If you are running a fashion blog, I am sure that you will be updating it with the latest trends in clothing. Why don’t you start selling the trendy clothes? You can do that from your blog itself or choose to start an online shop separately using platforms like Shopify and give a link from your blog.

>Affiliate Programs

Using affiliate programs in the blog is one of the most common methods for generating income from your blog. If you can get big traffic to a blog with affiliate programs from Amazon and e-bay, there is the chance that you can earn a considerable amount of income from it.

>Blog Consultant

Millions of new blogs are created every single day. The amount of new blogs in the form of fashion blogs is increasing day by day due to the presence of social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest. The chances of getting you hired as a blog consultant more if you can make a success in promoting and projecting yourself as an authority in the field.

>Be an ambassador of certain products

As a fashion blogger, you will be writing reviews and opinions on various beauty products you use or wear. It therefore becomes easy for you to become an ambassador of such products, provided you have the necessary talents and skill to make it big.

>Actively involve in fashion shows

Do you think anyone can start a fashion blog and make it a success? I would say that the answer is a big ‘No’. A fashion or beauty blog is not everyone’s cup of tea. You need to have some qualities in you that can make you a successful fashion blogger. Of course, you need to be a fashion model too. Your blog will let you brand yourself as a fashion model. This positive aspect from your blog will make your journey much easier for you to actively involving in fashion shows.

4.How to make money from your sports or games blog?

When the idea of writing a blog came up in mind for the first time, I was thinking of starting a blog on cricket. Born in a country where cricket is considered as a religion, it is not unusual that I planned to write a cricket blog. But later I decided not to proceed with that idea and instead started this blog.

Sports blog

Well! You might be wondering how you can make money by writing about sports or games. Trust me, we can make money from our Sports blog as well provided that you have a decent traffic to earn.

Here are some of the ways you can earn from a sports blog

>Advertising platforms like Google AdSense.

>Selling tickets for major sports events.

When you try to gather information from different sources for your blog, it makes you in touch with different authorities who shoulder the responsibility of organising a sporting events. It will lead you to get opportunities for selling tickets for the event. This income may be a meagre amount, but it may not be that bad if you can get that income every few months in a year. For example, you may get the opportunity to sell the season tickets for big football matches or cricket matches that are played every year as a tournament.

>Write sponsored posts

You can try using sponsored posts on your blog. Getting sponsored posts for a sports blog is not an easy thing. Still there are chances that you may get such posts when big events are taking place.

How to make money from event blogging?

A blog created keeping in mind an event that is going to happen soon like a world cup football or something similar is called an event blog.

An event blog can be run for few months until the event is over. For example, if a world cup football match starts next month, you can start a blog now until few weeks after the event finishes. The event blog will provide its readers with all the details of that particular event. The whole site can be used as an advertisement in various social media platforms to attract the attention of the crowd and sell tickets for the events. The events can be anything like a small musical concert or even a big event like a football or rugby world cup.

>Selling your photos

You know that the millions of blogs out there on the internet need images for their articles. If you are into blogging for at least six months, you may be knowing the importance of images in your blog post.

>Do graphic designing works for the clients

If you are a good photographer, chances are more that you may be a good photo editor and have some talent in graphic designing. Freelance Graphic designing is one way that you can choose to earn an income. Each and every new business on the internet is looking for logos to brand their business. If you can provide those clients or businesses with good quality logos at a reasonable price, there is a chance that you can make it as a source of income.

>Run a photography course

Are you a highly skilled photographer? Is it possible for you to provide your readers with all the tips and trips in photography? If you can do that, there is an option to give photography lessons in the form of various online courses.

Create and sell e-books explaining good photography skills and tips to enhance it. You may get a wide audience who like to know more about photography since it is a hobby for many people from various walks of life.

6.How to make money from your personal blog?

Making money from your personal blog is not an easy thing. The main reason is the difficulty you may face in branding yourself. If you are a celebrity, it may become easy to brand yourself. But, of course, it is logical that anyone having a celebrity status may not go behind the money from blogging.

Personal blog

Still there are examples we can site where people converted their personal blogs into money making machines.www.johnchow.com is one among those top blogs that make huge money from blogging. Even though his blog cannot be considered a purely personal blog, it is interesting to note that the domain name is his name, and he includes a lot of his personal stories in it. You can read here some of the ways by which you can monetize your personal blog.


Using advertisement is one of the major sources of income for personal blogs. Still traffic is the main criteria that decides how much you can earn from a personal blog.

>Sponsored posts

It is an unimaginable situation for newbie bloggers to get sponsored posts for their personal blogs. Trust me, it is hard getting those sponsored posts even, or bloggers involved in high earning niches of blogging. Still we can see that there are a lot of sponsored posts on those personal blogs where the bloggers were able to brand themselves as an authority in the field they are publishing posts. So, I can assure you that it is still not an unachievable target getting sponsored posts for your personal blog.

>Blog Consultant

Being a consultant is an option anyone in the field for a considerable amount of time. Even in your personal blog, there may be few topics that you cover regularly, and that may make some percentage of your readers approach you for help and mentoring.

>Review products and services

Even in your personal blog you have the freedom to choose any product or service to review. You may be able to review certain products that you use in your daily life. Also, it is possible to write your opinions about the places you visit. For example, you may write about the good services you received from a hotel that you might have visited recently.
