Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Blog Advertising

There are two main forms of blog advertising, paid or free falling under the categories of graphic (eg. banners, badges) and text (eg. backlinks, text ads).  Have you ever heard the adage don't put all your eggs in one basket?  Well that adage applies to advertising as well.  We have had a successful family owned and operated business for 30 years as of this coming February.  From experience I know that it is imperative to use a combination of advertising methods while building good will by providing a top notch, professional service.  The same is true when it comes to blog advertising.  You cannot use only one blog advertising method and expect to build good traffic.  Instead you should use a multitude of blog advertising methods (eg. banners, badges, text) across a variety of mediums (eg. directories, social media, blog advertising networks, forums, newsgroups, newsletters).  It is the only effective way to consistently build good quality traffic for your blog.
