Hello folks, today our Guest Author Peter Milar has took some of his precious time to write articles on our site. See How To Become a guest author on My Blogging Techniques.
It is no secret that on this date, .NET is the most popular platform for developing web applications. Even though it is one of the oldest programming frameworks around, there hasn’t been any monotony crept into it since the developers have kept reinventing the wheel. This platform has kept with the times and has even innovated to an extent that it has set a number of benchmarks when it comes to creating unique applications.







.NET is endorsed by the best programmer son earth who are testimony to the incredible value of this platform. Simply for the fact that it drives you towards the very best f your programming capabilities, .NET is making heads turn in the programming world.

So, What makes .NET so good?
It Gives Novices Space to Breathe

.NET is not one of those platforms that will make life hard for the beginners, who are often funding themselves struggling with the programming codes. It gives them enough scope to learn, and also to create programs that don’t require as much coding they would have otherwise envisaged. Unlike other programming languages where even the minor features would force developers to write long drawn-out codes, .NET makes it absurdly simple. C# and VB.NET are the best options to choose from when it comes to choosing which language will suit you fine. .NET facilitates a non fussy code structure – one that breeds straightforward writing of programs. If you are expert, there is not a place you can’t reach. By streamlining the development process, .NET ensures that you are left with enough juice to make your application dripping with creativity and uniqueness. The plugins and extensions you are provided with further ensure that the need for getting caught in the code complexities is greatly abridged and that you add certain features by simply installing those extensions. Also, these extensions draw your attention towards adding certain features that you might not have paid attention to while developing the apps.

It is Powerful, Flexible and Customizable

The stout framework of .NET ensures that you can aim for bigger grounds. The powerful features of this platform give you the freedom to eye for improbable features and turn them into reality. Injecting the avant-garde features in your app is one endeavor met with amicability and enough room to breathe. At the same time, .NET is highly flexible. Any time you see the market trends veering off to a different direction, you can embed some changes in your apps seamlessly. The incredible customization capabilities of the platform let you tailor the apps whenever you want, howsoever you want.  Even if your web application is generating enough buzz in the market, you would want it to adapt itself with the changing trends. And the app developed using .NET is equipped to do exactly that.

There is Greater Security Assurance

You can hardly be blamed if the news of certain website being hacked is making you jittery. After all, you can never know when your website finds a place for itself on the radar of hackers. They might be looking for that one opportunity to attack your site and damage it seriously. But when .NET is the platform you used while creating that site, you can be rest assured that the robustness of the site is reliable enough to keep the hackers away. There are in-built authentication features that  prove to be much resourceful for guarding your website against such miscreants.

All the features combine to perch .NET at the top of the ever-growing stack of programming frameworks. Find dependable developers for your project and set your foot on growth accelerator.

How to find materials for your blog


Hello folks, i hope that the contents of this site is serving well for you online knowledge.
Today our Guest Author Kate Funk has took some of his precious time to write articles on our site. See How To Become a guest author on My Blogging Techniques.

One of the reasons why a lot of blogs are abandoned is because the blog master runs out of material for his or her blog. This article is full of great ideas that you can use to improve your blog and come up with a little bit of material for your blog. Sometimes just seeing how other people do it is enough to get your own ideas flowing. So here are a few you can try for yourself with your blog.

Think about complaints or praise

Sometimes the best material comes from criticism or complaints. If you want to write a review then do, but you do not have to be confined by the supposed fair rules of a good review. For example, a good review should not show too much bias, but there is no rule that says you cannot be biased if you want to be. You can write a whole post that is just one long complaint about something and there is nothing stopping you from doing the opposite and writing a burningly positive post about something.

Google alerts

You can use Google alerts to let you know when a new blog post has been written or a new article has come out that relates to your chosen keywords. You can set it to tell you when a relevant article or blog post comes out that either relates to the query you entered or the selection of keywords that you entered into the Google alerts tool.

It emails you when it thinks a matching blog post or article has just been published (crawled by Google). This sort of thing can be used in two ways. You can hunt for articles within your genre and then copy their theme or use their ideas for your own blog posts, or you can go the other route and write counter arguments or counter attacks to the work of other peoples blogs. You do not even have to write about just one blog post.

For example, there may be several blogs that dislike Iron Man 3 (there are more than several--look it up!) so instead of counter arguing for just one blog you can pick points from several blogs and argue against them in one go. You may counter the argument that anxiety attacks are more than losing your breath from one blog and counter the argument that Pepper is a hero then a girly weakling inconsistently from another blog.

Think of the half life of facts

This idea comes from the fact that a lot of what you learn in college today is not going to be true or even relevant in 20 years. The only trouble is that we do not know which are going to stand the test of time and which are not. People used to think Freud was top notch but now most of his work has been discredited. People thought we had one moon, then two moons and now recent counts show over 18,000. People a few years ago were taught that Pluto was a planet when it is not. You can post about these ever changing facts on your blog (especially if it matches up with your blog theme.

Read case studies

It may be dull and a little boring but if you are going for a higher brow blog then case studies may fill you full of those facts and figures that your blog needs so badly. You may also criticize the case study and find holes in it.

Read more books on your subject

It is not the book itself that is going to inspire you. There will simply be a few parts in it that help you come up with new material. Plus, if you put in a few quotes from books then your blog looks as if it is worth more than it actually is. You may find a number of ideas or concepts that can keep you writing for a long time. Do not forget that each concept you find need not be a single blog post--you can write numerous blog posts based on single concepts you find within books.

Try video seminars and audio books

It seems pointless going to seminars these days when you can find most of them on YouTube or on dedicated websites. If you are still stuck then you can find them on sharing sites. You can watch or listen to these seminars and learn a few new things that you may either further research or you may apply to your blog with a new blog post.

7 Counterintuitive Ways to Boost Blog Traffic


 Hello folks, long time since last post. Today our Guest Author Maddy Bertelsen has took some of his precious time to write articles on our site. See How To Become a guest author on My Blogging Techniques.

Blog traffic is hard to improve. Even blog practitioners are challenged to keep up with many algorithm changes that affects the quality of their sites. But sometimes the solution to solve their problems are just under their nose. They just can't see it because of their limited perspective in search engine optimization and blogging.

To help you, here are effective counterintuitive ways to improve blog traffic and readership:

Don't Use Captcha

Captcha is an effective tool to block spammers from infesting your website. But this tool has its cons. One of these is that, captcha also prevents “real” people from visiting your website. Another reason is that it takes more time for people to leave comments, click to another page and more. In other words it limits user engagement. As you already know, comments and shares from these users help in improving your website quality.

Know When to Post Your Blogs

Instinct tells that when a blogger finished writing his article, he needs to publish it. But to schedule publication and to know when posts get better engagement is an effective way to gain more readers. According to Buffer, men prefers reading blogs at night while women read posts in the morning. This means to publish blogs at night if you're writing about sports, fitness and other male oriented topics. If you are writing about fashion, cooking and other female-oriented articles then you should update your blog during day time. To know the reading habits of your readers gives better mileage to your blogs.

Link to Other Websites

There are many bloggers who avoid creating out bound links going to other websites. They argue that these links reduces their link juice, which might lower their rankings. Atually it is the opposite. Links going to authoritative websites are helpful in improving your blog quality. It adds credibility to your articles and to you as a writer. Not linking to your source is rude, not to mention selfish. You should be grateful to your sources and give them citation through a link.

Be Authoritative

Use command rather than suggestive sentences because they are authoritative. Avoid using “you can leave comments” or “you may share this post.” Instead use commands like “leave your comments below” or “share this article.”  Suggestive sentences are unclear, it keeps readers second-guessing on what you want them to do, whereas commands are clear. It gives better response or action from the readers.

Share Your Posts Multiple Times

Sharing your article in social media is important to get more mileage for your blog. More share means more people can read your blog. That is why you should take Guy Kawasaki's advice in sharing blog updates. According to him, it is okay to share the same link more than one time because not everyone can see the link the first time you post it. He also adds that he shares his post 3 times a day with an 8-hour interval. He adds that 75% of his traffic happens because he tweets or shares his blog posts several times. At first you might think sharing the same content multiple times pisses your followers but Guy Kawasaki has a point. It gets you more traffic and readership.

Avoid Pop-Ups

Whether an encouragement to like your social media or an advertisement of your affiliates, you must think twice when putting pop-ups. These are intrusive and people do not like being pushed to do things they don't want. Also, it is irritating to click though different pages and these pop-ups keeps showing. Online readers have short attention so they'd rather leave the site than to see these advertisements over and over. Limiting pop-ups to once per session is good, removing it all is better.

You have to take chances and be open to various strategies to be able to survive constant algorithm changes. To make blogs effective, you have to experiment which strategies are better to use. Sometimes the less obvious strategies are the most effective ways to lead your blog to success.

Content Marketing: The 6 Secrets to Eye-Catching Content

Hello folks, today our guest author Sonia Jackson has taken some of her precious time to write for us. See how to become an Guest Author in My Blogging Techniques.

Eye catching content does not mean being offensive to the eye. Sometimes when you say things such as “eye catching” people think of it in terms of cereal boxes. But there is no need for bold and striking colors and graphics when you are working online.
content-marketing
 
You can be subtle and eye catching, plus you can work on catching your reader’s interest instead of grabbing their attention in an overt way. After all, the user is already looking at the screen, so unless your font or graphics are in a very small font it is going to be hard to miss what you are trying to sell to them (ideology wise or service/product wise). Here are a few tips to help your content marketing strategy along a little.
 

1 - Appeal to what your target consumer actually wants

 
This is something that so many people forget because they are so caught up in techniques that they cannot see the wood for the trees. If you are trying to appeal to young boys then drape ladies over video game consoles. If you are trying to appear to women then drape Brad pit over a motorbike wearing nothing but a honey sandwich.
 
Give people what they want and it will automatically become eye catching. It is just up to you to figure out what they want and how to get them to look at your content in the first place. For example, there is little point in getting sexy pictures of Brad Pitt if your content is attracting middle aged business men.
 

2 - Put your most interesting stuff at the top left of the page

 
If you are looking for psychological placements, then here are a few to consider. If you have a product that you want people to favor over the others then put it near the top left. It does not have to come first in your list, but it does need to be near the top left--so either second across or second down.
 
People are happy to put up with affiliate adverts if they are in the top right hand corner. People expect a search bar to be placed near the top right or left of a page. Put it elsewhere and people automatically assume it does not exist. A site map should not be on its own page--if you want one then put a well thought out one at the footer of your home page.
 

3 - An enticing title should also be descriptive

 
There are some people who just write enticing titles which is okay, but they do not gain the custom of those people who are immune to such tricks. If you make your title descriptive too then more people will give you the benefit of the doubt and read your content or click on your title link. The people who do not click on your description title or description link are the ones who would have not enjoyed the web page content anyway.
 

4 - A picture can say a thousand words

 
You can describe a lot with words but you can say even more with a picture. For example, you could spend paragraphs explaining how the little girl you saw on the train was brave, or you can show her standing her ground on a picture as her father raises a belt to her. Such an image will easily convey a more powerful message than your hundreds of words will, and there is a bigger chance that it will make a bigger impact on the reader.
 

5 - Make your text look easy to read

 
Do this in the same way that this article is laid out. Make your paragraphs of a reasonable size and split them up if you have to. And add headers to your article so that people can quickly skim read them and then get down to the rest of your content if they fancy reading it.
 

6 - Keep it fresh, simple and original

 
In simple terms this is all you need to be eye catching. It is because the Internet is over populated, and as satellite and cable TV has taught us, when a medium starts to fill up then it starts to fill up with crap. If you can produce content that is simple yet original, fresh without being weird then you will be like that TV station that is simply kept afloat because it has one good TV show on it that everybody loves. You can be that TV show if you just keep it simple, fresh and original.

Five Ways to Get Back Your Spark in Blogging


Hello folks, today our guest author Lauren Todd has taken some of her precious time to write for us. See how to become an Guest Author in My Blogging Techniques.  

Ever started a blog, worked on it, and later on felt that you don't want to blog anymore?
 
This happens to bloggers everywhere. Losing your interest for blogging is like a nagging writer's block that's difficult to deal with. If you find yourself not wanting to blog, consider doing the following solutions. Maybe you're just feeling exhausted and may need a little push to continue your blogging hobby.
 
Girl-Using-Laptop-003

1. Start posting again.

 
It's so easy to get fired up with blogging; first, you are so enthusiastic about it, only to find yourself disinterested in it later on. When this happens and you lose interest in regularly maintaining your blog, give yourself a chance to rest from feeling burned out because of blogging. Then, if you're ready, you can start posting again. It doesn't have to be the usual lengthy blog entry. A picture that captured your attention or a short thought will do. Starting small will help you get back your spark in blogging.
Other ways to make your posts interesting are the following: writing prompts, lists, "how to" types of posts, Throwback Thursday/Throwback posts, and reaction pictures using the gif format. Those are some small ways to spice up your blog once again.
 

2. Make it a habit again to blog.

 
Sometimes, you just have to do the activity again in order to make it a habit. If you want to get back to blogging again, but you don't have much time, make your blogging schedule easier to manage. Your blog doesn't have to be updated everyday. Even a once or twice a week update will do. Start with small steps so you can rekindle the fire in your blogging spirit.
It's not about filing your blog with lots if posts, but making sure that your blog posts are high quality and fun to read. The fun factor in your blog must never be compromised, and the important thing is that you're also having fun at blogging.
 

3. Change your blog's layout.

 
Having a new layout or theme in your blog might be able to help you blog again. There are lots of free themes available online for your blogging platform. You can just copy-paste codes in your blog theme settings or customize it yourself. A new look for your blog might work wonders and this can help you get excited again for blogging.

4. Follow and check out other blogs for inspiration.

 
If you want to get inspired with blogging, checking out other blogs will do! That can give you ideas on how to make your blog and entries interesting once again. Find out something nice that you like about other blogs, and take inspiration from it. Remember: don't copy other blogs! Just be inspired and add that dose of inspiration to your own blog.
 

5. If all else fails, do something else.

You don't have to suspend your blog account. That's an effort that just goes down the drain if you do. If you realize that you really don't want to blog for now, then find something else to keep you busy, like reading a novel or taking up a new skill. That can reduce the boredom you're currently feeling from blogging. Plus, it doesn't hurt to learn a new thing or two.
 
You don't have to force yourself to go back to blogging immediately. Just take a breather, and find other ways to enjoy life and make it fun for you. Bloggers, just like writers, do feel burned out, and dealing with it positively is the best solution.
 
Rest for a while, then blog again if you feel ready to do so.
