Blog Templates Can Make A Difference

  One of the first processes of making a blog is designing the template. Usually, basic templates are made by the hosting website to let you choose from. However, these templates are limited. Templates also affect your blog very much. It can affect the amount of readers, pageviews etc. If you get the wrong template, your blog may end up shoo-ing away visitors just when they see the header. 

  The main thing is: What is a good blog template?

  Here is the blog template of

  If you notice, only the title of the posts and a short part of the post is shown. That way, many posts can be shown in a single page and people can easily browse through the posts they want to read and just skip the ones they don't want to read. The short part of the post also initiates the reader's interest about the post and he/she will automatically click and view the whole post in a new tab. 

  Also, there is a small widget of popular posts in Problogger that does wonders. Though small and unattractive, readers who notice it can get around easily in the blog, knowing which posts are for beginners, which are all time populars and so on. Popular posts gives readers the impression that the post must be good and valuable, thus they will want to view more.

  Isn't a good blog template wonderful? Try it out on your blog! I'm sure it'll bring more pageviews for you!

Why niche blogging?

  First, do you actually know:

What is niche blogging?
Basically, niche blogging is like having a blog about a certain topic only. Let's say you chose the topic photography. Your niche blog is about only photography and nothing else, meaning the whole blog has the same content-about photography.

Now we got that covered. Next, the main question:

Why niche blogging?
If you blog about only one topic in your whole blog, people who are attracted to one post they read may lead them to other posts as the posts are about the same thing. As opposed to that, if you blog about any random topic in your blog, people who are interested in this post may be not interested in the other random topics of your blog. If he/she gets bored, he/she will just leave your blog. Niche blogs usually get loyal readers that want to read only on a certain topic that a niche blog provides. If your blog is what he/she wants, then congratulations! You have a loyal reader!

How does niche blogging get you better income?
A niche blog helps advertisers find the relevant blog that has a connection with their ads. For example: a blog about photography can get ads about new cameras to put in his/her blog. Readers who read about photography are naturally interested in the topic, thus cameras are relevant to this topic and can get attract more interested people to know more about the ad. On the other hand, blog with random posts makes it difficult for advertisers to choose the right ad to put in your blog as there are too many topics. Imagine finding a guitar sale ad right next to a post about animals. Off topic isn't it? This reduces the number of potential customers that will want to find out more about the ad. 

Doesn't labels help blog readers get around in your blog?
Let me ask you: How many of you who are interested to find out about blog tips on my blog are going to click the label to find out more? Let me guess: None? Blog readers can really be as lazy as they can get (even I am). The content they want is not shown on the page? Out of their reading list. They usually don't bother checking labels as it takes time.

I'm more of a personal blogger than a blog-to-earn blogger. Is this step necessary? (Changing to a niche blog)
If you are just going to blog about your life and personal stuff, then it doesn't really matter. Your income is not that important as it just gives you a small sum of money. It does not really affect you unless you're going to be a professional blogger full-time.

  The conclusion is, niche blogging helps to increase your income. I think I'll have to go niche blogging to. On my next posts, I'll reveal on how to choose your topic for blogging!

Inserting HTML codes to your BLOGGER POSTS

You know those times when you want to post a HTML code in a blogger
post as a guide to the public, but when you publish it, it becomes the widget or application instead of showing the HTML code?

For example: I want to put a guide on how to insert a CommentBox widget. 

The code that you insert:


Becomes the widget itself!

  But fear no more! I am here to teach you how to make it into the original HTML code:
<!-- HTML codes by -->
<form action="/html/tags/html_form_tag_action.cfm" method="post">
  Comments:<br />
  <textarea name="comments" id="comments">
  Hey... say something!
  </textarea><br />
  <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
<p style="font-size:10px;"><a href="">Create website</a></p>

  First, go to  It looks like this:

  Simply copy your HTML code to the space given, and press "make it friendly"!
Then, copy the given HTML code into your blogger post, and TADAA!! It's the HTML code! Not the widget itself!
