Mom’s Know All About Mistakes!

2010 April 16
by Dick Schaefer

Such as why did they marry that jerk in the 1st place and what can a single mom do to earn some extra money? Why, blog, of course, the easiest way to make money with your clothes on!

Blogging, according to my blogging friend Ann, is a great way to earn substantial income, just by talking about the things that moms do every day.  In her latest post, the three things to do from the very start she is telling bloggers where to start. That’s a good thing and something I wish would have been available when I started blogging. The best advice I could give to a new blogger would be to follow the advice and council of another more experienced blogger. Someone who came into blogging before you, bloggers who have learned from their mistakes and who want to share their knowledge with newbie bloggers, providing them with free advice, tips and shortcuts that will make blogging easier than ever for those already overstressed moms.

Any advice from a blogger you admire is free for the asking and you can get it via the comment system of a blog. Here is a great little tutorial on How To Comment from my friend and fellow blogger, Extreme John. Don’t be fooled by his appearance, he is an amazing individual. Learning the art of commenting is the thing that will eventually make you an authority in your niche – if you know the protocol.  We will offer new bloggers a whole bunch of time-saving and frustration-fighting tips and shortcuts within this blog and hope you will enjoy.

Forget all that stuff I said at the beginning of this paragraph, I was just being my usual obnoxious self.

The idea of teaching moms to blog, giving them the idea that one mom can make a difference, influencing  the buying habits of other moms, making retail chains sit up and take notice, inferring there is money to be made and products to be tested, I think is a bit unfair to motherhood in general, and I have stated my position on this in a previous post about moms attracting the attention of major retailers . However, Ann is unshakable in her beliefs that any mom with something to say and a unique approach to saying it can become a successful blogger. I guess she is right in one sense, if you have what it takes to be a mom, (in my mind one of the toughest jobs there is), you sure have what it takes to be a mom blogger.

So instead of being such an downer on the subject of mom bloggers please allow me to set both the reader and my friend Ann on the straight path.

The first rule of how to become a successful and powerful voice in the Blogosphere as an influencer is – listen to Ann. She knows what she is talking about when it comes to blogging and she is a mom herself. I am just here to provide the male (jerk) perspective and to play devils advocate, although I do know a few things about blogging myself. So don’t depend on Ann to give you all the great stuff,  after all she is a busy woman and although very SMARTY, if you get my drift, she doesn’t know everything! And despite all the drivel that you hear from me, giving the impression that I am against moms being bloggers (it’s a commie plot!) I, as much as Ann, want to see you succeed as a blogger.

    Thanks Ileane, coming from you that’s a real compliment! I thought it a fascinating concept too, Ann was skeptical at first but I think I convinced her that a back and forth dialog would be fun to do.
