Watch Screen Capture Videos of Me Blogging!

Have you ever wanted to see someone else blog? What their process is and how they go about doing certain aspects of blogging? Well, I thought screen capture videos of me blogging would be a unique way to connect to you guys. So I’ve started doing screen capture videos for our new Best Buddies Patreons! To start with, I wanted to show you an example of one of the Screen Capture Video. This is a video of me blogging while editing the previous Website Development post I wrote here. This is recorded Live and in Real Time. I try to keep them between 5-20 minutes but include valuable blogging tips and hacks, and type notes to you while I capture whatever blogging task I might be recording for you!   So I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to do a video of me developing this website for the week in the series on Development. But I had been procrastinating on writing THAT VERY POST because I have been… too busy Developing… This… Website? Ironic, I know. I do a lot in this 18 min screen capture (no sound but I type to you in a notepad) including draft, assign a…

Why We Love Being Affiliates of the Ultimate Bundles + Why You Will Too!

We’re a few days into yet another AMAZING bundle of resources provided to us via Ultimate Bundles. And it’s a good one, as always! I want to share with you why we love being affiliates for the Ultimate Bundles, and why we think you will too!   For most bloggers, probably the most difficult stage of blogging is when you become serious enough about it, to start monetizing your blog. You probably know that affiliate marketing accounts for a mass amount of profit for bloggers, dare I say the majority of income for most bloggers. It’s overwhelming at first, to start swimming through all the many options you have about monetizing your blog: What kinds of things do you want to be an affiliate of? Do the companies and products I love have affiliate programs? How do you apply, and better yet when you do, what next? There are places like ShareASale and the rest, but how do I make the most out of those affiliate offers anyways?   I know for me, the most confusing part wasn’t how to become an affiliate, or even what kinds of things I wanted to rep. It was what to do when you…
