Creating and Launching your first Blog in blogger.com (A free web hosting service)



Blogger is an excellent platform where you can host your blog. I would suggest that you should start up by creating an email id in gmail different from your personal id. For purpose of this exercise I have created new id for myself too

--> Go to site http://www.gmail.com/
--> Create an id for yourself from “sign up as a new user”. I have created chillihunter@gmail.com for myself

Now here are the steps to set your first blog
Step 1
-->Go to http://www.blogger.com/
-->In Username put your gmail id username (In my case it is chillihunter)
-->In password put your gmail password



After Signing you would go to Step 2

--> You will get the page “Sign Up for Blogger”. Here your gmail id and password is good enough to take care of all information that Blogger might need.
-->In Display Name add the name which you would like your readers to see on your blogs. In my case I have put Chilli Hunter
-->It is advisable to read their terms of service to avoid conflict in future


Step 3- This is the step where you would give Title of your blog and the url.

-->Give the title of your blog. It is important that you title should reflect the true nature of your blog. Sometime you can keep the name general in order to highlight your identity as an individual which is ok. In this case I will keep Chilli Hunter because I would be looking for spicy things over the web.
--> Url is an Important part. Jut like you write http://www.google.com/ or http://www.yahoo.com/. It is important that people should write the url for your blog easily or should be able to remember it without any difficulty. Again I want it as chillihunter. Please note that though you can change it later on but it is not advisable because the posts that you have written would be from the old url only and hence you can loose some value of your site.

Step 4- Choose the template

This is a basic step. Preview and select the template which you like. I have selected Thisaway rose for my blog.

CONGRATS- Your blog is launched and it will take you to your first post. Just write something on your first post about the topic which interests you a lot. Give a tag and there you go.

Hold ON- This is not over yet
I would like you to set up different template (the outlay of your blog) than this one and also how you can set up adsense to make that extramoney.
                                                             

You need that extra money- Internet is your best bet

There is always a first step when you start anything. If you have started reading this article then the prime reason is that you want those extra bucks for which no qualification is required and no one is going to reject you. You don’t need to go through a job interview or those lengthy courses which promise you a job. Even if you are in a job you would like to make extra money to supplement your income in order to fulfill your wishes or create assets for safe future.


Blogging is certainly one field where if you become successful there is no stopping. People from remote areas of our country have left there job and have started active blogging only when they realized the potential it hold. Wait …… wait…………I am not saying that you leave your job immediately but I would certainly vouch you to take this seriously so that in coming years and far ahead you should have something to fall upon. Its like a journey with low success rate but like any profession hard work do pays off. Don’t expect thing to be fine from moment you write your first blog but be confident that market is out there which is hungry for information kept in your head.

So let’s take first step in this direction.

There are three important things before you start your blog

1) Presentation of your blog – It is platform which would be your launch pad and face in ever expanding internet.
2) Content and its effective marketing- Content is key. You need to have your niche and expertise for visitors to rely on you completely (More on this in my coming posts). It also covers the tricks which would help you promote your blog.
3) Other streams- there are other streams which would complement your earning. You need to set your foot here and with time it would be like the ATM machine for you.

I am keeping this post simple and informative because I have tons of friend who have capability to make big but don’t know from where they should start. Internet is expanding worldwide which means the sooner you ride the wagon; the higher you can go with each passing day.

This sums up where we are and what we need to do. As always start writing down about the vision. Vision is only step which provides direction. If there is no vision there are chances that you will fail much sooner than tasting the signs of victory in earlier phase which is important as a fuel.

In my next post I will talk about Setting up your first blog with all basic widgets.                                                              

Make Money Online- A Primer of things to come

Like Every other business you would like to do and don't know from where to start, making money online is no different. You must have been swamped by large emails promising to give you large number of dollars for your small time but its all fake and just crap. The reality is that in order to make money online you need to invest time and work hard. Its not difficult but then its not that easy that you will fill a form and dollars would start to pour. Like any other profession perseverance is the key.

I used to be novice just like many of you who are reading this blog are. But in order to make everyone aware of huge opportunity on Internet and to be prepared for revolution I would dedicate the postings which will tell how you can "Make Money Online" in style and effectively. Through series of postings my effort would be to start how a layman would like to work and then give you pointers which will help you succeed.

Just like you cannot learn swimming by reading, same way you cannot make huge bucks by reading. You need to work hard and earn it.

Good Luck and keep looking for this space.............

Stock Market Crash - A boon for Asset Managers

Corporate Pension funds are huge accounts and asset managers are more than eager to secure their mandate. Rising markets has always made it difficult to secure a mandate in light of returns and flexibility they get for handling the account. Also with rising markets corporates were confident enough that they can get returns through their own strategies without paying hefty fees. Stock market crash in some way has worked as a trigger for corporate funds to buck this trend and rely on the professionals to get returns on their money.

A recent news of Cadbury adds hedge fund sweetener is one of the incident where mandate has been given to two hedge fund managers. So for hedge funds, if their business has survived the current turmoil, this is the fish they can grab in depressed markets.

Lessons to be learnt- Happy Couple

A couple was celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Their domestic
tranquillity had long been the talk of the town-"What a peaceful & loving couple".


A local newspaper reporter was inquiring as to the secret of their long and
happy marriage.

"Well, it dates back to our honeymoon," explained the man.

"We visited the Grand Canyon and took a trip down to the bottom on the
canyon by horse. We hadn't gone too far when my wife's horse stumbled.

My wife said, "That's once".

"We proceeded a little further and the horse stumbled again. Once more
my wife said, 'That's twice.' "We hadn't gone a half-mile when the horse
stumbled the third time. My wife quietly removed a revolver from her purse
and shot the horse dead.

"I started an angry protest over her treatment of the horse; while I was
shouting, she looked at me, and said, "That's once".

"And we lived happily ever after "

Men have good friends...

Men always have better friends...

Men always have better friends...They will stand by you, no matter what....!!!

Friends of Women:

A wife was not at home for a whole night. So she tells her husband, the very next morning, that she stayed at her (girl) friend's apartment overnight. So the husband calls 10 of her best (girl) friends and none of them confirm that she was with them.


Friends of Men:

A husband was not at home for a whole night. So he tells his wife the very next morning, that he stayed at his friend's apartment over night. So the wife calls 10 of his best friends and 5 of them confirm that he stayed at their apartments that night and another 5 are claiming that he is still with them!!

Gaur GreenVista Indirapuram - Construction is in progress to meet the deadline




Visited Gaur GreenVista Indirapuram a month back. The construction seems to be progressing well. With date of possession be 31st December 2009, the construction has reached the fourth floor.

I was particularly impressed when I saw that encroachment has been removed by the Municipal authorities and the road to approach the same from Supertech icon is straight and clean. The boundary wall of patrakar society has been removed and now one can go straight.






Gaursons has delivered some good projects like Gaur green avenue and gaur green city and hope despite all issues they will live upto expectations. One this which follow this builder is its reputation and its seen in this project how they fare. Its only because of their reputation that their project got sold off very quickly and they did not even thought of building the sample apartment.

Best of Luck Gaur......only thing that survives is the reputation.
