    tremendous number of people get lost their data and blogs for some reasons. The worst thing is that people usually dont make a backup to restore all the lost info. If you host your own blog, you have full access to it and there are less worries about loosing data until some quirky PCman would mind to spite you and huck your blog :) Anyway, there are many reasons why it's better to host your own blog, and its not that difficult, its as easy as to host any other publishing website.

    Serge - You can enter blog carnivals right away if you'd like. It is best, however to make sure you've got at least a fairly decent number of articles on your blog before you do. I'd wait until I had 10-15. If you get into a carnival and have no other content for your new readers to see, they may not be as inclined to return again.

    @bigp
    10-15, ok i got it :) that's new information for me for today ;) and at least it's logical. Offering a single post on a blog is not a good idea indeed.
    BTW, i think i will need your help. I have started promotional blog for our product and i'm going to post daily articles there. So, some kind of review on my first artcle is needed... :) the topic will be somehting like "how to choose the right publishing platform" or something like that that is related to publishing software IAE. For sure, i'm not going to abuse our competitors, coz nobody would like to read such a blog IMO :) what do you think about it?

    P.S. further i would like to write big article about "The Latest Trends in Publishing Software"... and submit it to article directories. You know i didn't find anything specific about this topic on internet, so i think this article will be unique one, and i hope usefull.


    @bbb91
    Well there are lots of publishing and blogging software you can find on the internet, whether it's wordpress or article dashboard... Well, you can try xooArticles Articles Script.... it's new on the market and shows much promises. We have a free campaign now for 50 registered members. Demo version is at http://www.xooarticles.com/demo/
    If you have any question, PM me

    Serge - Are you familiar with the topoic that you want to talk about? If you're starting a blog about something you may have a hard time writing, you are bound to burnout rather quickly.

    @silentincome - Just Google "Libel" and you'll learn all there is to know about the topic. It is simply a written statement that is defamatory.

    Thanks for the info bigp,

    Not to worry if your written statement are all positive but there are times when a few person get offended of some bad critics

    Well again Focus is the main thing that I am lacking off and most newbs too. In fact, I have made some changes to shift my PC and IM references to a separate room just to ignore such distractions. This will make things done quickly i am sure of

    Agreed. Very MySpace and Vey Tagged as well. :D
    Embed music will consume more space and slow uploading

    Joshua, Great post man! It's quality posts like this that make the game of blogging better for everyone. I have a question about blog carnivals. How do you think Google's new algo changes targeting content farms will affect the carnivals, if at all? Any thoughts you have are appreciated.

    I've never heard the term "blog carnival" before and the strategy looks like a win. Keep up the nice blog.
