If you’ve missed out on any of these articles, this is your chance to catch up.

I would like to thank every single one of you has visited this blog, subscribed to the RSS feed, read an article, linked to this site, left a comment, helped me out in some way, or offered your insight. I really appreciate it, and I can’t wait to see where 2008 will take us – I’ll be posting my blogging resolutions on January 1 (that’s tomorrow)!

It’s Time to Upgrade to WordPress 2.3.2

December 30, 2007

WordPress just recently released a new version, WordPress 2.3.2, which fixes a security bug that can allow people to see your drafts. This can be pretty bad for some who save their best articles in drafts, or keep important information stored in draft files. Either way, if you don’t want anyone to have access to your drafts or to be able to read what they contain, then it’s best that you upgrade to 2.3.2. The folks at WordPress call this an “urgent security release”, so maybe you shouldn’t skip this one!

However, upgrading to 2.3.3 also allows you to customize DB error pages. According to WordPress:

“As a little bonus, 2.3.2 allows you to define a custom DB error page. Place your custom template at wp-content/db-error.php. If WP has a problem connecting to your database, this page will displayed rather than the default error message.”

If you’re currently using WordPress 2.3.1, then you can see the differences between it and the newest release, 2.3.2. Or you can go ahead and download the latest WordPress upgrade, staying on top of the game and keeping your blog safe!

Make Money Online With Your Talents

We all have different talents and abilities, but as bloggers we must learn to recognize what we’re good at and use our unique traits to help us make money online. Obviously as bloggers we should be able to write and we should know what we’re writing about, but there is more to us than just that! Everyone has a multitude of talents, and all you’ve got to do is think about what they are and put them to use, implementing ideas no one else would think of.

A huge part about making money online is being unique. Think about one of the most popular blogs in your niche, whichever one that comes to mind first. Did that blogger get successful by copying others and never doing anything new, never sharing their unique talents? Of course not. You need to separate yourself from the crowd and offer something different.

Right now I challenge you to sit down and grab a pen and a piece of paper. Jot down at least ten things that you’re good at, and think about how you can use these abilities to make money online. Take notes on how you can apply those talents to new projects or how you can work them into your existing blog or site and create linkbait or money-making potential. This might seem hard, but honestly it isn’t. The key thing here is to be open-minded, to think out of the box. Open your eyes to a new perspective so you can see how your talents can be used in a different way from the norm.

It’s obvious that you can use your talents and abilities to start new projects. For example, if you’re a great cook you can start a baking blog, posting photos and recipes to some great dishes or even a video of you in the kitchen. But there are already plenty of blogs like that, and unless you can think of even more ways for yours to stand out, it could end up being a wasted effort.

Think about how you can use your talents and apply them to your current blog or site, no matter what its niche is. If you can draw, draw a picture of an A-list blogger and it’ll probably get plenty of attention. Can you sing or write songs? Make a video of you singing a song you’ve written about your niche – it might go viral like Kina’s song about Digg did. Like mentioned above, maybe you can bake. Bake a dessert or cookies that resembles something in your niche, such as a popular site’s logo. Use your abilities and your creativity to your advantage!

There are thousands of ways to create linkbait and draw attention to your site, thus helping you to make money online – all you have to do is open your eyes and look around for something unique that you can do. One of my New Year’s resolutions for this blog is going to be offering something different and being more unique. What about you? Share your ideas and opinions in the comments section!

Happy holidays, merry Christmas!

Earlier I discussed wrapping up the year and making resolutions, but now it’s Christmas and the holidays are here. I love celebrating and I’d also love to make the holidays and the end of 2007 better for every other blogger out there, so I am going to share a list and link to all of my favorite blogs of the year. And here are some of them:

And if you’re not on that list, that doesn’t mean you can’t be! I’d love to give a little Christmas present to everyone, so if you like just leave a comment and I will add you to the list if you’re not on it already. This applies for anyone and everyone who comments before January 1, 2008. Please feel free to visit and subscribe to the above blogs, and happy holidays! Also, be sure to comment so you can be included in the link love as well. :)
