If you are fed up with your blog and no longer want to live with it, there are certain ways you can kill it. Here are some tips if you really want to murder it.
Spam other sites..
You can spam other sites using the comment feature. You can write useless comments such as; “great site”, “nice post”, “thanks for sharing” etc. Pick a site and do this on every single post of the website. Sooner or later, the blog owner will be get fed up with you and filter you to the spam corner for good. Move on to the next site.

Ask any blogger what they want to achieve out of their blogging activities and most of them will tell you that they want to make money out of it. But it’s a hard thing to do but not impossible. Making money online is down to 2 things; creating content and then letting other people know about it. You combine them together; you are half way there to making the money you want from the comfort of your own home. One thing is important; you have to believe that you can make money online. The moment you think you can’t, you are out of the rat race. So here is a plan on how to make your first $1,000 online.

Your Essential Webinar Tools
Hosting a webinar isn’t all about being a speaker who delivers the goods; it’s also about having the right goods to get the job done. I’m talking about the essential webinar tools you’re going to need to make a great first impression.
Let’s talk about some of the tools you’ll need to have in place before you host your first event:
Webinar Software to help you create a webinar
This one’s a given. You can’t actually get people to your webinar if they have no place to go. It would be like trying to hold a live conference without having a physical conference room to send people to. Your webinar software is the location for your event. Like a live venue, you’ll want to pick something that the audience will be comfortable with, that they can reach without too much trouble and that has the facilities and features they’d expect when they arrive.
Two common webinar software programs are Go To Webinar and Adobe Connect Pro. Read More…
StudioPress Themes for WordPress
Genesis itself is a very plain theme. It contains all the functions and pages necessary, but there is very little customization in terms of colors, fonts, and header. Think of it like a blank canvas on which you can begin to paint. And in WordPress, you do your painting with a child theme.
Studiopress offers a wide variety of child themes to work with. Lifestyle, Copyblogger, News, and Executive are some of the most widely known, but no matter what your site’s style, you can probably find a Studiopress theme to match.
The advantages of using the Genesis framework include price, support, and availability of information, and the disadvantages are very few. Plus, their licensing structure is very lenient, which means you won’t have to spend more money for every site you build – a distinctive advantage for businesses on a budget.
The Studiopress forums are very active, with a board dedicated to each child theme they produce. Whatever theme you’re using, you should be able to get all your questions answered quickly just by visiting the appropriate forum. You’ll also find many Genesis developers online, so if you run into a problem that’s not addressed in the forum, a Google search will probably turn up the solution. Read More…
If you’re still not convinced that a premium theme is right for you, there are a couple of other options worth checking out. All are free and offer a good support system, important no matter which theme you ultimately choose.
The first is a free theme called Atahualpa. Off the shelf, Atahualpa isn’t much to look at. It’s a simple three column theme with a header and some not very appealing colors and styles. But once you log into your dashboard, you’ll see the power that Atahualpa has.
Within this theme you’ll find an extensive customization panel that allows you to easily change everything from your header to the way lists are displayed. Choose a single column theme or add up to five sidebars. The makers of Atahualpa, Bytes for All, maintain a popular forum just for users of their theme, so you can easily find answers to your questions. In addition, there are a lot of users of Atahualpa on the Internet, so a Google search will find a lot of answers as well. There is also at least one paid guide (independently published) created just for users of this versatile theme.
One of the many reasons why WordPress is so popular for blogging is because using it means it’s incredibly easy to change the look and functionality of your site. Anytime you feel like for a makeover, all you need to do is just upload a new theme, activate it, and voila, you have a sparkling new look with all your content and pictures right where you left them. It’s like a new pair of clothes with the same person inside it.
Changing the look of your site might be as easy as clicking a button, but choosing the right theme is not so easy. There are several thousands of free themes available on WordPress.org and many others. Many more are revealed with a simple Google or Yahoo search. And those are just the free themes. Paid – or premium – themes open up a whole new world of possibilities.
With premium themes meaning that you have to pay for it to use it on your blog, not only do you get a better quality, better coded theme, but they also come with support you won’t find in the free Read More…
