WordPress for Android powered devices

In Internet on May 3, 2011 by Asif Mumtaz Tagged: , , ,

I am having a great day after i installed the WordPress app from Android market.

It is a powerful yet extremely simple application that gives you a mobile version of WordPress. Once the app is installed, you can add a new blog or add an existing wordpress blog. You can add self hosted wordpress blogs as well as blogs hosted by wordpress. Adding blogs is really easy and simple.

Once you have added blogs, you will see all of them on your Mobile WordPress dashboard. From there, you can access comments, pages, posts and stats for your blogs. You can also add new posts using a powerful wordpress editor. I am using a small android phone to write this post.

Its a powerful app with all the features that i may ask from a droid version.

You can add media to blog post, format text and can even add links and categories. Posts can either be published immediately or can be scheduled.

If you are a blogger, then this android app should be on your droid device.

Note: Be ready to write without a spell checker and a smaller keyboard than most of you are used to. Despite these limitations, the app is really great.

Novice Bloggers Can Make Enough Money to Support Their Studies by Devoting 2 Hours a Day!

In Making money on March 17, 2011 by Asif Mumtaz Tagged: , , , , , ,

I was brain storming about my new venture when a friend called and asked if he can make money using the internet. I normally do not give an advice to those interested only in get-rich-quick schemes. Nevertheless, the guy calling, was a close friend and he was desperate to make money. When I dug deep, I realized that he was finding it difficult to carry on his studies due to financial problems.

At one stage in my life, I thought of setting up something, may be a content creation company, where I can help students make enough money. But the idea just died inside my mind as most of my ideas do.

Anyway, I looked around a little and talked to some other friends on social networks only to realize that economic problems were affecting the students more than ever. However, they do not need to give up. There is always something out there that can help!

Setting up a blog and using it to make enough money to afford tution fee is not a big deal. I will go through the basics quickly. If anyone wants to do this, catch me at skype (psasif) or engage me through comments on this post.

  • Find a niche quickly. For those who do not know what a niche is, Google it quickly and then continue reading.
  • This is how you can find niches quickly. I have made up a chart to help you out. (don’t mind my drawing- I don’t have time to photoshop details)

niche hunting

 

  • Quickly set-up a blog using WordPress (its free and Google just loves it).
  • Select your keywords using Google Adwords, which is free. Put your main keyword there and you will get plenty of keywords to write about. Just make sure that you are looking at the competition before selecting the keywords.
  • You are done! Just blog once a day. Devote an hour and write down a blog post every day. Spend the other hour marketing your blog. At a later stage, I will give you some quick tips to market your blog without spending a dime.

Here are some quick links to get more info about the things that I’ve barely mentioned:
