More about Brownie Cameras in a minute. So anyway, I did indeed have a stroke, or hemorrhage to be more exact. It has taken about four years to return. My speech is still slightly affected along with my balance and right hand, but luckily my mind is still the same; I remain abnormal. Isn’t that wonderful. And although the world of blogging has become much easier to enter in the past several years, the basic elements remain very much the same. Even if you have all the tools, you will still need an underlying talent to get your message out. Good content is what is able to highlight good bloggers…just like a good photographer with a Brownie Camera. Same with blogging. You only need basic tools if you have the talent. And that’s what this web site offers. Tools.

Comments:

This is the second time I have referred readers to Spy, the first being during the Mumbai massacre. Does it have anything to do with ranking your site? Not really. Does it have something to do with life on the “outside”?  Yes.  Use the pound sign to follow a specific subject and be continually updated. (#Iran).

(The Wowzio site is no longer operational.

Meetup serves multiple purposes: it will allow you to meet like minded individuals who share your goals and ideals; it will allow you to mix in and eventually rank your own site, and it will help you to prequalify your idea. What good is the last thought?  If you need to identify an interest in your area of expertise, this is the place to find it.

Google Zeitgeist1 

Google Zeitgeist Review 

What does this tool do:  Keeps you from believing there is a trend…when there isn’t. 

Cost: Free

Who Needs It:  Do you want to ignore Google stats?

Info Page:   http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/zeitgeist/index.html

Comments:

“The word zeitgeist describes the intellectual, cultural, ethical and political climate, ambience and morals of an era (similar to the English word “mainstream”) or also a trend.”  So says Wikipedia. Of course you could just say Trend, but it doesn’t have the cache. It’s German you know. Enough of this.  Go to the above link and find additional Google sites that will help you prequalify the niche of your choice.

Sitepoint: Find the Competition

Sitepoint1 

Sitepoint Review 

What does this tool do:  Identifies competition.

Cost: Free

Who Needs It:  Do you want to make money?

Info Page:   http://marketplace.sitepoint.com/

Comments:  

At the Marketplace tab within Sitepoint you can identify sites that are making money. If you can do better then this is the place you want to study. Internet marketing flies in the face of traditional thinking…instead of find a niche of low competition, you will want to seek out HIGH competitive areas and then stick your hands out to snag sales as you build up your site.  This site identifies where you need to go.
