DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

How To Create A Great Blog Post In 4 Steps

If you own, operate, and manage a blog, then you already know the demand for generating quality content on a routine basis. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could just crank out a wonderful blog post using a proven process? Well, I think I found one. Let me share my process with you.

Blog Content In 4 Steps

Finding Ideas – The very first step in generating some nice content is coming up with ideas. This is probably the hardest part of the process for most of us – it certainly is for me. I discovered a long time ago that the very best way to get your creative juices flowing is reading blog posts from others in your market. I simply put RSS feeds from the popular blogs into a feed reader and review them from time to time.

You certainly don’t want to steal ideas, but rather expand on things that have already been written. How can you add more value to what has been said? Or how can you modify it for your particular readership. Another good way to get ideas is by going to Topsy.com. Visit this nifty site and type in a topic and you will get tons of ideas.

Create Attention Getting Titles – How important are titles? Many great copywriters out there will tell you to spend as much time writing the title as you do your salesletter. I recommend that you read a few posts about writing good headlines and learn the styles that attract the most attention.

An interesting place to visit is this nifty title generator site. Type in a few topics and check out the titles that it gives you. Pretty cool!

Add Text To A Cool Image – My feeling is that every post should have an image. This does two things for you: 1) It adds a little extra SEO to your post (by putting keywords in the alt text and image names), and 2) Makes the post more visually appealing and easy to read. Lots of us like to use free images – which is cool – but they get stale if everyone is using them.

If you want your images to stand out from the crowd, then consider adding text to the image. You can either use Photoshop or Paint, or you could go to PicMonkey, which is a free online photo editor.

Add Subtitles To Your Post – Now that everything is written and laid out in your blog, you need to add a few subtitles. This accomplishes the very same thing that images give you – added SEO and visual appeal. I recommend that you use a few secondary keywords and designate them as H2 or H3 – if you are using a Wordpress Blog.
