What is a Blog? – I define a blog as a personal publishing platform. Instead of having to edit a webpage by hand using HTML, blog software makes things much simpler and more effective. Simply log into the blog via the internet, type in your subject line and text, maybe add some links or pictures, and click the publish button. Everything is automatically laid out for you, and presto…you have blogged.

How do people make money from blogging?

I know that there are probably millions of bloggers out there. I also know that there a small percentage of them make money from blogging. Does anyone out there do this, (make money from blogging) and how do they do it?

You have information that is so interesting that people are willing to pay for it. You have to give each person a password so they can enter your blog. The most-likely ones to earn money are: real estate, interest rates, stock picking, and child-raising.

There are 133 million blogs on the internet. Most of them have an audience of one person.

What are the Economics of Internet Business? – I’ve been an Internet entrepreneur since about 1996. I never really understood Economics, though. Chris B emailed me, to talk to me about an Economics paper he is writing for high school. He wanted to base his paper off of something a little different than what most kids are doing – putting his focus on Internet businesses such as mine. I was only too happy to answer his questions, and help him out! –

Blogging the ‘Google way’ with Karen Wickre at Connected Marketing Week, San Francisco, 2010

Anna Marie Virzi, ClickZ, interviews Karen Wickre, Google, at Connected Marketing Week, ClickZ Blogworks Forum, San Francisco, 2010 on the subject of how do you guide an army of bloggers. Karen says Google has about 150 corporate blogs and teams manage each of those. In order to avoid a blog coming across as too much “corporate speak,” Karen says Google does a bit of best practices training with each blog team, showing them the Google blog style and voice so the blogs can offer lively, useful content. The vast majority of Google’s corporate blog readers are already familiar with the subject matter of these corporate blogs and the role of each team is to make sure the content is useful, has tips, and encourages feedback. Blog posts are drafted and edited by each blog team. Karen recommends to other corporations that they approach their blogs as if they were publications, to engage the reader, and make the content interesting, not just formal announcements. In addition, blogs should be conversational and friendly in tone and provide useful links for its readers.

What forces are shaping the future of the printed book? What will be the future of book publishing?

Blogging Gifts – Everyone loves gifts! I especially love them when I’m not expecting them! Nancy from the Outrigger Waikiki sent me a surprise gift basket to my room when I was staying there recently, courtesy of @alohabruce. I was in Hawaii for the [re]Think Hawaii conference. Apparently, the hotel noticed that I was tweeting from my hotel room, and posting pictures of the scenery! In any case, they sent me a very cool gift basket, and I was pleased as heck with it! –
