What type of content should I post in my blog?
If you had asked me in 2008, I would answer that you should definitely write articles for your blog. Now over the years the definition of content has been changed. Now there is more than one type of blog content. Back then we would say content writing, now we say content creation. There is video, audio, image, flash, animation, slideshow, documents and many more forms of content you can create for your blog.
Now article writing is the most basic form of blog content creation. More people prefer reading text articles because it is so easy to consume. Creating text based content is a no-brainer for a blogger. Search engines like google & bing can easily read the chunks of text and can rank your page easily.
Now what if you are not good at writing?
Face it, not everyone can become a blog writer. For some people it’s a boring little thing to write in a blog. Now the question is, if you cannot or don’t want to write, will you still be able to create a successful blog?
For every successful blogs, it needs engaging content; content that people will love to consume and share with their friends.
So let me share what are the types of blog content you can produce for your blog other than written content, [click to continue…]
Hello friends, this year I haven’t been able to write many updates here in BlogKori (other than some 2 posts in Bangla) and you must be thinking what is going on? Is BlogKori turning into a Bangla blog?
I was busy working at my other blog and also the upcoming Udemy course of mine. So the good news is I am launching a new course in the Udemy platform: “Advanced Digital Marketing Skills for Busy Professionals” by Jan ’15.
Now what is Udemy?
Udemy is an online learning platform that hosts courses. Two years ago when I launched BlogKori Academy, all the course materials were hosted by me, which was a hassle. Now last year I posted a test course at the Udemy platform and it exceeded my expectations. I got 500+ students through the platform without doing any promotion from my end. [click to continue…]
For years I have blogged and made money by selling advertisements in my blog. However I haven’t got the chance to share how I got ad deals from my blog. Frankly speaking I haven’t done anything special to get advertisers in my blog but in this article I like to share how to do it. In this fresh new article you will learn how to get the advertisers emailing you for putting ads in your blog.
What Advertisers Want?
Some advertisers want visitors and some want backlinks. And there are other advertisers who just want to be all around the market. So they are more like focused on brand & awareness building. So let me give you a small overview for all these types of advertisers,
- Advertisers who want visitors: They are simply looking to increase the number of their web visitors. Look at this way, I spend my time to build my audience and this advertiser can buy some of these visitors. From an advertiser’s point of view, this is the fastest way to gain some quality & targeted visitors. This is also called media buying. The more traffic & engagement you have in your blog the more ads you can get. [click to continue…]
This is a 3 part guest post series written by Ravinder Sahu; in this article he shared the pros and cons of using social media as a background check in the hiring process. You can read the first part here.
Businesses are becoming even more creative in recruitment efforts more than ever. With the high risks often associated in recruitment, businesses are using even more avenues to obtain and verify information regarding applicants’ employment history, education credentials – like having an MBA degree online, credit checks, criminal history and background checks. This has proven to be a very beneficial and cost effective move for many employers. With company theft, increase in worker compensation claims, business assets being compromised and confidentiality breaches, businesses are consistently placed at risk. To minimize such risks, more companies have enhanced their recruitment efforts to ensure the most qualified and ethical workers are hired.
Although there remains to be no full-proof measure to ensure all information checks out in a background investigation, there are some creative techniques businesses are now executing. With the usage of social media in today’s society, more and more employers are now using social media background checks to determine if an applicant should be hired. In fact, approximately 75 percent of recruiters conduct online research of potential employees and 70 percent have used such findings to make a determination rather or not to extend a job offer to a candidate.

I don’t usually do any product reviews but this one is an exception. Few weeks ago I shared on facebook that my lifelong dream is to make movies. (I will share about that in another post) I got a warm response from my followers and someone from Tmart sent me an email offering a freebie. They offered me this Mini DV camera and told me to share my experience after using the camera. So I agreed and selected this exact model.
I was so happy and excited to receive a mini size HD camcorder. So after a month I got a message from my local mailman. [click to continue…]

Blogger & Tumblr
In the past I have shared what is the difference between a paid host and a free host. I always recommend using a paid web host for your online ventures. But there is no one size fits all approach in web publishing. So in this article I will be talking about 2 of the awesome web hosts around the internet, Tumblr and Blogger.
Now you must be thinking, isn’t these 2 platforms solely for blogs? Yes they are, but you can extend them to a semi-professional level. The best part is, both of these platforms are FREE forever.
Blogger (Blogspot) is owned by Google & Tumblr is recently acquired by Yahoo!
Since these 2 services are owned by these giants, there is a big chance that these 2 platforms will stay there forever (unless the parent company wishes to discontinue the service)
Now let us see why I think Tumblr and Blogger are the best web hosts for blogs, [click to continue…]
