Everyone wants to own a website or blog but not everyone has the capabilities to handle a site or a blog.
As i would always say, the best strategy to stay active and focused on your blog or site is to take information
from various sources.Creativity can also be a great way to make your blog grow.You cannot just start up a blog and
expect that your blog would start getting pageviews without working on it.There are some things that you need to take
into consideration before starting up a blog.

have a Google Account. If you don’t have an account click on sign up. When you have completed the necessary info , Log in
go to create blog. Type in the url of the blogspot page you want to create. , try choosing a name that
can be remembered easily by other people and has not been used by another person. If you want to use a custom domain e.g www.example.com

web hosting sites but the most trusted is Godaddy.com LLC, Here’s a small list of web hosts,

send it to your device. Use UC Browser most preferably on Smartphones,. Visit The Blogger Page , Go to Templates > Backup/Restore .You would see an option to upload a template . search for the template where
you have placed it on your device and click on upload after you have downloaded it. One more thing is that blogger templates are relatively small in size so don”t be scared to download it.

simply go to the pages option on your facebook account.click on create new page. Select your blog’s niche then the url you want to use for the blog. In
Choosing Page Name You have to be very careful,because the page cannot be renamed after it crosses 200 likes unless you can change your ip to U.S and submit
a little form. The next step is to invite all your friends to like your page, then set up little contests like dropping free airtime pins everyday at a specific time.
Just Sign Up or Login With Your Username. Note that twitter does not need a special page for a company or a website. Every twitter handle can be personal
or for a website, just use your blog as your username and make sure there is a link to your blog on the account. A little secret, getting followers
is a bit hard but the easiest way to get followers is to use an online api at www . twiends . com. Connect your twitter account to twiends.com and you are good to go.
You can also advertise your social profiles along side your comments in other blogs and
A blog that gets less than 50 pageviews a day is nothing to write home about, so the aim of every blogger is to get as many pageviews as possible.

from advertising companies on your blog. Now this is where most people get stuck. There are many ad companies out there on the web
but only a few can be trusted. Google Adsense is what every blogger and webmaster wants but adsense is extremely hard to get ,since
it takes double approval. Sites that are opened with Google’s Blogger stand more chances of being approved than other sites, because
one of the main reason Google disapproves Adsense applications is lack of content. There is a saying on the web, CONTENT IS KING,
Google knows the number of posts on your blogspot account and knows when it was opened since it is run by them, Make sure that before
applying for Adsense that you have up to 500 posts on your blog, this would improve your chances of getting approved ,on the other way round
you can get adsense approved by using Youtube. Yes Youtube, you might be wondering what youtube
has to do with this. Here’s the trick,
make sure you have up to 5 uploaded videos on your account and you have at least 7 subscribers and 50 views , go to www.youtube.com/monetize or type

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan
If there’s anything you need more aside from food, then it’s probably data.
Civilization has gotten more digital than ever, tech has rapidly evolved – so as apps. And regardless of what uses these apps provide, most of them need our mobile data to run efficiently.
Mobile networks are aware of these, and the cost data is obviously getting less expensive than it was. Thankfully, no matter what part of the world you’re in, there’s always a data plan for everyone.
But still, there is still a way to get the most out of your data plan without unnecessary usage that you might not even be aware of.
Now forget what similar articles you might have seen before, if you follow these two simple tips, you’ll definitely notice change in your data exhaustion rate.
1 • Turn off Apps Background Data
As simple as this may seem, a lot of individuals don’t even know this. Turning off background data for some certain apps can save you a lot of money not just data only.
Reason is, some apps use your data even if you don’t have them open. It all happens in the background.
Here’s how to turn off apps background data.
First, go to Settings, then to Apps
Click whichever app you don’t need background data
Below the app details, click data usage
Click on the toggle beside the background data
You can do these for as many apps you wish not to use your data unnecessarily in the background.
2 • Install Datally
Datally is another app from Google with the initiative of conserving more data for its Android users. The app is lightweight, its latest version is just little above 5MB.
Adding to this, it comes with a bunch of useful features like data saver that allows you to block data background usage or unwanted notifications from apps with ease, and also a detailed statistics of your data usage.
My favorite feature is the Bubble that gives real-time data usage of the app you’re using at that moment
One tip though (more like an advice), if you’re at any point managing data stay far from YouTube. But if you still have the itch to watch youtube video, go for the lite version of the app, YouTube Go. Because I heard some people only get their senses back with the “your data is remaining 100MB” message. 🙄
Okay that will be all for now. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to assist.
Thanks for reading, hopefully I’ll see you in the next post.
