Weekly link round up

 

Welcome to Another Edition of the Best Blogging Links of the Week!

1. Since posting How To Make Money From Blogging Even If No One Is Paying You Part 2, readers have been sharing their motivations for blogging.  How many can you think of?

When I read What are Your Blogging Expectations, I was shocked to see how many blogging motivations exist.  Susan Langer’s guest author Renard Moreau thoroughly examines the topic.

2. 6 Best Ways Bloggers Can Save Time with Templates was well-received, and the post actually promoted on the Ronovan’s Writes Positively blog.  The reason is clear.  Bloggers are tired!

Lucy Mitchell from Blondewritemore parodies the Five Stages of Grief with her comical and totally relatable The Five Stages of the Writer’s Nap.  Lucy recently received the Funniest Blogger award at this summer’s Bloggers Bash which is an indication of just how funny this post is.

3. Since publishing How To Make Money From Blogging Even If No One Is Paying You Part 2 which offers the pros and cons of self-hosting, I have received many questions about it.  There is great interest.  Readers are definitely considering self-hosting. 

One question bloggers need to ask when considering the move is which company will host your blog.  Sam Anthony, in his post WordPress Hosting: The Complete Resource Guide on How to Choose a Managed WordPress Host,  thoroughly answers that question.  The post is written in the form of chapters.  I found Chapter 3, an overview of the choices, and Chapter 9, all factors considered, which self-hosting company is the best, the most valuable.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s selections!

As always, blogging-related link submissions are welcome! Links into your site improve your SEO ranking, and your information empowers others.  Just leave your link and a short blurb about how it relates to blogging in the comments section.  Any post about blogging, writing, productivity, or technology that helps bloggers would be considered.

If you left a link for reblog consideration on my previous site, Reflections, I would appreciate your resubmitting the link in the comments section here, so I have a running list of submissions.

Please share, so others have a chance to get their writing promoted.

  1. Eric Klingenberg

    I think you need to check your links they are not working properly. Nice summary of your posts.

  2. Janice Wald

    Hi Eric,
    Thank you for apprising me. I checked all the links, and fixed the broken one. I appreciate you letting me know. Thanks for reading my choices for Best Links of the Week.
    Janice

  3. Sam Anthony

    Thanks for including our Managed WordPress Hosting Guide, Janice! Keep up the great work with your blog!

    • Janice Wald

      Thank you Sam. Your post was comprehensive, and helpful; you deserved it.
      Janice

  4. Renard Moreau

    [ Smiles ] Hmm. Amazing. I see that I have managed to make your list.

    Susan and I would both disagree that I was a guest blogger on her blog; for the record, we share each other’s posts via Triberr, Twitter, Google Plus, etcetra.

    However, thank you for the great honour.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Renard,
      My apologies. Please give me the correct wording, so I can correct this. Team of bloggers? Congratulations again on a thorough article. I certainly couldn’t have thought of all those motivations!
      Janice

      • Renard Moreau

        [ Smiles ] Apologies accepted. No atrocity was actually committed.

        I wouldn’t use the term team of bloggers and it is not a collaboration either.

        Thank you for your interest!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jennifer,
      My pleasure! So glad you like the new (two-week old) feature. At the old site, people read about one new blogger that I featured on Thursday; now they can read about three. You are right, the round up has the same advantage as a linky party or blog party, access to new bloggers. Thanks for letting me know.

    Thank you for your posts and sharing Mr. Anthony’s post “WordPress Hosting: The Complete Resource Guide on How to Choose a Managed WordPress Host” with all of us! Hoping to be deciding on who to self-host with later today / tomorrow time frame.

    Gotta keep my fingers crossed that this works out this time!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Jeanette,
      I am getting such an education in plug ins, etc. However, you shared you are already tech savvy so shouldn’t have tech problems. I am so glad the roundup article was beneficial to your decisions. What a coincidence I should share that article at this time!

        Will be starting my site through a small orange today! Thanks again for your information. How do I let the company know to assign my new site purchase to your affiliate account?

        • Janice Wald

          That is my company! I will find out and apprise you momentarily. Thank you so much.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Melinda,
      Thanks for checking in with me today and commenting on the articles. Thank you as always for your kind words. I know how busy you get on the weekends. It’s so great to see you when you don’t have the grandbaby. and you are free.
      Janice

      • Melinda

        Janice, Thanks! I’ll have her Sat. as usual, I’m sure! And, I just found out she’s going to be a big sister! So, exciting times for this Omie!!

        • Janice Wald

          Is Omie grandma? Congratulations, another grandbaby. That is thrilling. When is the baby due?

          • Melinda

            Yes, Omie is what the baby calls me. Thank you. I’m getting excited! At first I was surprised! I believe she’s only 8 weeks, so looong time! Gives me prep time! I gotta get stuff organized for two! And start buying cutesy little bitty clothes again! Yay!
            Pudding Pop is gonna be a great big sister! I just hope she learns to share our attention! lol She’s not used to that!

    I checked out Lucy Mitchell’s 5 stages post. So hilarious! No wonder she won Funniest! Totally deserved!

    • Janice Wald

      Every time she posts she has a funny article. This one, for me, was standout funny. I guess that’s because I love naps LOL.
      Janice

      • Melinda

        Oh, naps!! Naps are my secret obsession!! Oops, not so secret now! 😉

        • Janice Wald

          LOL! That’s it; I’m going to your site and trying again. See you in a minute in Florida =)

          • Melinda

            I’m here waiting for ya! 😉

          • Janice Wald

            I’m back in L.A. I can’t find a subscribe box. At the top it says I’m following, but that could be the reader. Where is your “subscribe” box?

        • Melinda

          Also, my sweet friend just downloaded Picasa for me. It’s so fun playing with it! My pix should start showing improvements ASAP!!

          • Janice Wald

            I LOVE Picassa. I miss it. I got a new laptop and have been using Canva and Paint exclusively. I will try to rememer to download Picassa. See you in a minute.

      Will be taking your advice starting TODAY! Will be getting a dot.com site from the Orange (forgot exact name) company. Going to be an exciting day. How do I get you to get credited for the affiliate pay out?

      • Janice Wald

        Do you mean how do I get a discount for referring a friend?
        That is so kind of you to think of me. Very thoughtful! I went to their site, and it said to give you this code. http://asmallorange.com/?ref_id=S2yoXDi1o5nQ
        Be sure to use it. I am not sure if it said that you might get a discount as well.
        Thank you, much appreciated. Good luck with the hosting. Their 24/7 tech support is knowledgeable, friendly, and generous with their time.
        Let me know how it goes.
        Janice

        • Jeanette Hall

          I didn’t get the answer before I set up the account. Is there any way to notify them that you referred me after I created my account with them? There was a field for coupon code, but since I didn’t have one I ignored it.

          • Janice Wald

            If you will be contacting them today, please ask. I have an appointment soon and I will be out most of the day. If you do contact them, please let me know, so I don’t try later. Thank you!
            Janice

          • Jeanette Hall

            Am opening a ticket. Asked them to credit your account for my sign up!

          • Janice Wald

            You are wonderful. Thank you so much for thinking of me as you begin your new endeavor. When your new site is ready let me know so I can come visit.
            Janice

          • Jeanette Hall

            Will let you know as soon as it is up!

          • Janice Wald

            I will hold good thoughts for you.
            Janice

          • Janice Wald

            How is it going??

          • Jeanette Hall

            My setup had program blocking the flow between it and my site with the tiny Orange. My multiple sclerosis has left me with a cognitive thinking reduction. Takes a lot longer for me to catch on now than it used to. Figured out what the problem probably was while lying in bed last night. Just logged on to the computer for the day, so have not attacked the problem yet.

          • Janice Wald

            The people at Orange are very supportive. There are also supportive groups on Facebook. If you need their link let me know.

          • Jeanette Hall

            I know! They helped me get started on the fact I forgot to use the link to give you the credit for referring me to their business. Still working on completeing that trouble ticket with them.

          • Janice Wald

            So sorry you are having stress. They will help.

          • Jeanette Hall

            LUNCH BREAK!!

          • Jeanette

            The ticket has been closed, so you should have received credit for my new site! My new site is up, but is still a work in progress. The site is: saintpblogging.com

            Any suggestions are welcome. Have not got the parts in that has a potential to make me money, yet. Had a hard enough time moving my blog info over. Had to actually sleep on the process several times before figuring it out!

          • Jeanette Hall

            Ticket # is NAX-932-24385. I will be following up on this issue. Have a great weekend!

          • Janice Wald

            Thank you you too. I want to hear how it goes.
