My Gaming Blog

Don't know if anyone is really interested in reading Blogs but I'm just trying to get some writing experience and the like. Hopefully get a few followers and regulars reading it.

Anyway, the link to the Blog is:
Gaming is Life

Not asking for anyone to be clicking ads and all that just trying to get myself recognised :)

Going to be updating when something pops up in my head and hopefully you will advise on what I'm doing wrong and right! Let me know via this thread or comment on the Blog posts :) Thank you! :thumbsup:

:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
As long as I know a few members are enjoying the material I just need to work on my writing skills.

Always good having some good feedback.
Will keep updating it as much as possible so basically, watch this space.. well.. that space.

One thing I noticed (without wanting to sound like a grammar Nazi) is the use of there/their.

Other than that, it was a nice bite sized read. Keep up the good work. :thumbsup:

good start so far fella... i personally would've chosen wordpress over blogspot but that just my preference.

If you really want to make a go of things, it's all about the content, good quality content.
It's wise to get a few articles written up and then schedule them to post through the week.
For example, write say 3 or 4 articles this weekend then schedule them to post different times throughout the week, you are then a week ahead of yourself in terms of content, and if anything pops in to your head you can just post it as normal.
The ultimate goal would be to have a ton of articles written up ready to go and you just post the 'spur of the moment' or 'breaking news' posts as and when.

Why not open it up to some gamers on here and see if they want to write some articles for the site too - you don't have to use their content, but you never know, you may find a great new writing partner. :smashin:

Sounds great, I was thinking about wordpress but once I downloaded it I couldn't set it up. Also you have to buy web space to host it? Am I right?

And I'll get back to you Darryl. PM me your email. I'll more than likely do it :)

Looking good dude, but if you want hits, you really should get your own domain and go hosted, there's loads of options available. I see someone mentioned Wordpress, Google LOVES Wordpress, pages are indexed quicker, for example, I have a Black Ops blog running and get around 1k hits a month, it's only been up a little while.

Also, content is king, make it unique and interesting and the hits will come.

Finally, consider submitting articles to N4G, they dish out alot of hits to websites just like yours and can help with building an initial reader base, but the content has to be there.
