You have heard it and maybe even said it: Blah, Blah Blah…this saying is very akin to yada, yada, yada. But what do they mean and what does it have to with anything?
Monotony, rudimentary and mundane are all words that come to mind. And the reason I write about these is to explain the process necessary to maintain a successful blog. So here goes:
- Writing is not mundane – it is a craft – and like any craft must be practiced;
- It is important to be diligent – we have up to 10,000 comments and have to go through each and every one of them and determine if they are real or fake;
- It is important follow through – I am constantly on the lookout for things to write about and we have more than 85 posts;
- Don’t give up – it took us 14 months before the blog has taken off like it has;
- Be consistent – write at least once a week;
- Use lists and tags – apparently they work;
- Have fun – writing is not a chore;
- Share that which is useful – I could write about anything but I choose to write about things that are useful to the human condition;
- Go through all the comments – we use the good, the bad and the ugly;
- Clean up the comments – some people comment and add websites that are not appropriate to our site.
We write about spiritual things, marketing ideas, personal experience and relevant topics. I do not write too much about current events because I am not the news. I could but I choose not to.
I have learned that this site does not work good with OPERA and the rss feed is at the bottom of each post. You can share what we write and please pass this forward. I don’t know what link backs, track backs or pingbacks are – but if they are good – please do so. Do not plagiarize.
We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to communicate with you. We can be reached.
We Face book, we tweet, we have a blip.tv site (http://latinfusiontv.blip.tv/) and we welcome serious suggestions. We have a group page on Facebook as well as individual pages. We have a website with videos and photos – check us out – www.latinfusiontv.com. I will check out a website if you ask me to. It is monotonous, and rather mundane but it must be done to be successful.
You can advertise on our site but you must contact us to do so. We have more than 5000 unique visitors a month with more than 200,000 hits a month. I know that many of you put up url’s to your sites but we have been kind enough not to erase them. We do not use SEO nor will we.
We have tried to reach those of you who ask us to but you will need to put in a good email address in the comments. We will check to see if your comment has spam and we will clean it up for the rest of our audience.
I enjoy what you all have to offer – especially the funny comments that are repetitive and nonsensical – but you will never see them because I go through them all and erase the ones that do not add to the blog or to the comments.
I have thought about cheeseburgers and sausages and the media has changed and it affects the global structure as a whole. Zune is better and the ipod is great. I know that I am not responsible and you can point fingers – but please do not expect that I will put porn url’s on our site and we will be diligent to keep it clean for you.
We think up the topics ourselves and we are passionate about what we do. With that being said – yada, yada, yada and Blah, Blah, Blog away!
Take care, God Bless and Cool Runnings mon – Michael Arellano
