Blogging and promoting it with Web 2.0 marketing, one beginner’s discovery.
It’s all over the internet you can quickly start making money on the internet, just start a blog. Now you can’t just blog about anything and expect it to get read, get subscribers or make money. You need to pick a topic and a niche within that topic and give it a catchy (memorable) blog name. So you go to blogger.com, cause we want to start out with the least amount of expenses as possible (free is good), to register and get started.
Now you need do some blog postings. Writing an article doesn’t just mean putting down thoughts into words then typing and writing it. You have to capture the interest of your readers and get them to keep on reading. To send your message across you have to get the attention of the reader and have a firm grasp of their interest and pique their curiosity.
The main ingredient in baking up an article is a large dose of creativity. While creativity may come natural to many people, some others have to work a little harder. Putting words into images in the readers mind is an art. A clear and crisp depiction requires a certain flair that only creativity can provide. The way an article gets entwined word for word, sentence by sentence then paragraph by paragraph into a whole article develops the essence of the article.

So now you’ve started and are on your way, do you just sit back and let SEO do its work? I wouldn’t.
So where do we go next, how to we get people to our blog? Now is the time to start integrating some Web 2.0 Marketing.
It is finally starting to click with me, what needs to be done and the steps that need to be taken.
1. Have you set up/picked the social networks you would like to work with. There are many to choose from and to try and participate in them all would be time consuming. So I recommend you pick a few (include at least one of the top web 2.0 networks and social networks (digg, mixx, stumbleupon, twitter, myspace, facebook and many others) and go from there.
2. Write the best article you can muster, no direct sales pitches here, on whatever topic relates to your blogging world, post it and then we start having some fun.
3. Submit your article to Digg, Mixx, stumbleupon or whatever platforms you have chosen.
4. Let people know you have posted to your blog through twitter, myspace, facebook whatever social networks you have decided to use.
5. Repeat steps 1 thru 4…….
In the end it all comes down to the friend of a friend of a friend theory. Well go with 90% of your subscribers, readers and ultimately your customers at some point were referred or found you through your “friend” network and if they stay you are bound to get more of those referrals.
Let’s get out there and make some FRIENDS.
