The Traits & Habits of Successful Bloggers

Kevin Muldoon – The Traits & Habits of Successful Bloggers

I just finished reading a great ebook by Kevin Muldoon titled The Traits & Habits of Successful Bloggers: What Separates the Best from the Rest.  I started reading Kevin’s book and couldn’t put it down until I had completed it.  Kevin’s ebook is not a technical guide, so don’t expect to find instructions on how to code or how to select a theme and build a blog using GoDaddy, Fat Cow, 1Page, bluehost, or any of the sites you’re familiar with.  Not going to happen.

What you will get from Kevin’s book is straight forward guidance on the characteristics exhibited by successful bloggers.  For example, if you treat your blog like a hobby, you’ll make hobby money.  Successful bloggers treat their blogs like a business, and get a greater return for the time invested.  Some of the chapters I found most helpful in Kevin’s book were Chapter 12 – They Understand The Benefits of Variety, Chapter 13 – They Plan Ahead, Chapter 17 – They Know When Something Isn’t Working, and Chapter 21 – They Love What They Do.

I’ve been blogging since 2011, and I want to better monetize my blogs.  Kevin is making a great living blogging.  That’s my goal as well, to have a profitable blog.  Listen to this.  In 2010 Kevin sold his former blog, for $60,000.  He sold for $80,000 in 2012.

If you want to be taken seriously as a blogger, you should definitely invest in a copy of The Traits & Habits of Successful Bloggers: What Separates the Best from the Rest.  The guidance Kevin provides is exceptionally helpful, and can be implemented immediately.  So, stop procrasting and invest in your copy today!!!

The New Leviathan

Bestselling au­thor David Horowitz and co-author Jacob Laksin have written an unsettling book about the distribu­tion of power in America.  The New Leviathan: How the Left-Wing Money-Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens America’s Future over­turns the conventional wisdom about which end of the political spectrum represents the rich and pow­erful, and which represents the people.

The Democratic Party presents itself to the electorate as the party of working families and the poor. In the 2000 election campaign, Democrat Al Gore ran on the slogan “The People vs. the Powerful,” while President Obama describes him­self as a “grassroots organizer” and a spokesman for “fairness” and “progressive change.” Such is the world of political myth. In reality, the Demo­crats and the Obama progressives represent the richest and most powerful political machine in American history. Backed by a near trillion-dollar treasury in America’s oldest and largest tax-exempt foundations, progressives outspend conservatives by a factor of seven to one.

In The New Leviathan: How the Left-Wing Money-Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens America’s Future, David Horowitz and Jacob Laksin examine this growing financial power of left-wing organizations and politicians. They show how left-wing foundations under­wrote the political career of Barack Obama and how massive funding advantages for progressive proposals have disenfranchised American voters and shifted the national policy debate dramatically to the left. The New Leviathan draws connections between the Obama administration and progres­sive organizations from labor unions to media outlets to nonprofits to political groups, and shows how on key policy fronts—national security, immigration, citizenship, environment, and health care—the sheer force of left-wing financial resources has reconfigured the nation’s political agenda.

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, 2012 Commencement Speaker at Trinity Washington University

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, graduate of Trinity Washington University, class of 1962.  2012 marks the 50-year class reunion of the 1962 graduating class of Trinity Washington University.

How appropriate to have Nancy Pelosi deliver the commencement speech on Sunday, May 20, 2012.  It was a beautiful day for a graduation, and Trinity’s graduates were quite surprised to learn who was delivering the commencement speech.  Up until the last minute, they did not know who the commencement speaker was going to be.  As I walked toward campus, reading the program, I was overjoyed to see that The Honorable Nancy Pelosi had been chosen to address the Class of 2012.

Not only did she address the class, but she gave every graduate (464 graduates) a copy of her most recent book, Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters.  Mrs. Pelosi believes all men and women are created equal, and that the sky really is the limit for our daughters and granddaughters.  Nancy Pelosi made history when she became the first woman Speaker of the House, and she continues to inspire women of all ages in Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters.  She encourages women to never lose faith, to speak out and make their voices heard, to focus on what matters most, and to follow their dreams wherever they lead.

50 Shades of Grey

Wow!!!  This book is off the Richter scale.  Supposedly selling one copy per minute.  What’s the book about?  When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Who Came Up With The Volkswagen Design?

Did you know that Hitler promoted, or insisted on the development of a small, affordable, everyman’s car, more notably the Volkswagen.  I didn’t know this.  

There is question regarding who actually came up with the Volkswagen design.  Two new books, The Extraordinary Life of Josef Ganz: The Jewish Engineer Behind Hitler’s Volkswagen by Paul Schilperoord and Thinking Small: The Long, Strange Trip of the Volkswagen Beetle by Andrea Hiott,  research the issue, and come up with different conclusions.  According to Paul Schilperoord, Josef Ganz designed a car called the Maikafer, or May bug.  The car was a tremendous hit in Germany.  One of the test drivers was an Austrian-born automotive engineer name Ferdinand Porsche.  In 1931 Porsche had no experience designing light-weight models with rear-mounted engines and fully independent suspension, but after his test drive of the May bug, he commenced developing drawings of his own small car, including many features of Ganz’s Volkswagen design.

So who should get credit for the Volkswagen design?  Read the books by Paul Schilperoord and Andrea Hiott and decide for yourself.
