New Thread: It’s All Free (and Mostly Easy)

This morning I added a second thread to this blog, which will be a description/tutorial on how to get started blogging for free, and how you can do everything you see on this blog without programming knowledge. Go here — or click It’s All Free (and Mostly Easy) in the navigation bar above) — for the start of the tutorial.

Why do you start a new thread? If you are posting regularly, some of your good stuff will move way down in the reverse chronological format of the blog. For reference material you want to have easily accessed, and which isn’t commenting on news of the day, adding a new page (with child pages or sub-pages) instead of a new post is the way to go.

In this case, I hope to make it easy for people who want to get started blogging to do so, and to eliminate excuses for not starting.

I’m at a conference on blogging and podcasting where people are spending a minimum of $1,699 plus travel and lodging (and two days of their lives) to learn about these topics.

I think that’s a really worthwile investment. Conferences like this are great to get you out of the routine and think about the bigger picture.

Why not take the next step and really apply what we’re learning, especially since it’s FREE? By investing 90 seconds or less now, and no money, you can start a blog. Then, for those who are at the conference, you could even blog about the presentations, as I am. Or, when you go home, you could take a couple of hours to write about (and link to) the blogs and resources you found most helpful. It will be a great way to get hands on experience and really have the information sink in.

  2. Good Day

    Just wanted to share my new experience.

    If your system denies to run due to an error corresponding to missing HAL.DLL, invalid Boot.ini or any other important system boot files you can fix this by using the XP installation CD. Just boot from your XP Setup CD and enter the Recovery Console. Then launch “attrib -H -R -S” on the C:\Boot.ini file and delete it. Launch “Bootcfg /Rebuild” and then Fixboot

    Cheers,

  3. Hi people,

    I recently registered to this forum social-media-university-global.org and hope that somebody can
    give me an advice on the forex – I am looking for an introduction
    for beginners. I have already some knowledge about shares. (Hope this is the right category.)

    Any help is so much appreciated. Most important question: can a noob make money on the forex exchange market?

    Thanks,
    Jim

  5. Digsby is a free program which combines IM, Email, and Social Networking into one. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and it’s really good. I’m running 3 IM accounts, facebook, myspace, and 2 gmail accounts on it and everything works. I’m honestly impressed so far.

    Check it out and download it here: http://www.lan5.net/digsby.html

    I do have a one problem with it though. I can’t figure out how to put links into my profile. It’s not that big of a deal though.

    What do you think, is Digsby better than Trillian and those other communication programs?

  6. Hi. I regularly announce this forum. This is the oldest culture unqualified to ask a ridiculous.
    How multifarious in this forum are references progressive behind, knavish users?
    Can I bank all the facts that there is?

  7. Hello I’m new here
    And it looks like a good forum, so just wanted to say hello! :):):)
    And looking forward to participating.
    Going on vacation for a few days, so i’ll be back

    The odds are statistically in your favor to put your money at the casino as opposed to wasting it on the stock market or real estate. Fact is, the stock market has been dead for over a year and the housing market offers a million dollar high interest mortgage for a home that will soon after be worth 1/3 it’s purchase rate. It almost makes sense to default on loans today!

  9. Great Article. Wanto to share the following:

    Marbella and the surrounding area is the jewel in the crown of the property and real estate market on the Costa del Sol. Some areas in and around Marbella are the most wealthy and expensive in the whole of Spain. The real estate market in the Marbella area has seen phenomenal growth in the past decade, which shows no sign of abating. Some properties have doubled or tripled in the space of a few years and many investors and private buyers have become rich through intelligent speculation and investment.
    Apartments Marbella

    The quality of the property for sale in the Marbella area and the excellence of the infrastructure and services has been a significant factor in driving the Marbella property market. This quality combined with the cosmopolitan international outlook of the population has played a big part in the success of the real estate market here in recent years.
    Do not be put off by the high prices of certain properties, there are still bargains to be found and provided the property market in Marbella remains strong (which appears to be the case) investment in Marbella property should still provide a handsome return on investment.
