3-year old blogger demonstrates the 3 most important steps in effective blogging

3-year old blogger demonstrates the 3 most important steps in effective blogging

Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

The 3 most important steps in effective blogging was captured on camera today when my mommy dropped by the Panera Bread shop to pick me up after a morning of working with my problogger daddy yecky (Ed: aka) Wil.by.

Daddy gives his 50 best tips to make $4 (Ed: Mia thinks all money units come in 4s.) by blogging at his pro-blogging web site.

Daddy also brings me to work with him sometimes. And he buys me purple drinks (Ed: raspberry smoothies) and flower cookies. (Ed: cookies shaped like flowers.)

And and, he teaches me stuff, too.

Today I learned 3 very important steps to be a defective  (Ed: effective, sigh) blogger.  And just by axe in dents (Ed: accidents) my mommy caught them on camera.

Step 1 to be an effective blogger – Think

Bloggers need to use their noodles…um, thinkers.

Daddy says there are a lot of people who don’t think but do think (huh?) they are bloggers. For some reason, just because they can hit the keyboard a lot and know where the publish button is, they reckon they are bloggers. Not so, says Daddy

They also wonder why nobody reads their stuff.

Gotta think good thoughts. That’s what daddy says.

Step 2 to be an effective blogger – Write

Bloggers need to write….and hit publish…a LOT

It ain’t no good to think good thoughts. You gotta hit the keyboard…again and again and again and again….and you gotta hit the publish button.

Daddy says that the more times you hit the publish button, the more chances you have of somebody finding your stuff. Duh.

The more stuff you have in the spider web, the better chance of catching a bug I guess.

Step 3 to be an effective blogger – look for social poof. (Ed: proof!)

Bloggers need Social Proof

After you write stuff…gotta find people to read it and think, “That’s good.” Face the book, Linked the inn and Google plus minus zero. Daddy says these guys are the good backlink Jen are ate hers. (Ed: generators).

Especially if your stuff is good and your friends pass it around.

Do these three things over and over and over again…and according to my daddy, you can be a infective (Ed: effective) blogger.

Try it and let me know how it goes for you.

What’s left when you have no right brain, left brain or good looks left

What’s left when you have no right brain, left brain or good looks left

Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

My daddy is a joker. Or maybe he is serious. I don’t know.

He says that my big brother Benjamin got all his right brain ability. He’s an amazing artist – plays the piano, draws, pants, um, I mean paints.

My other big brother, Micah, got all his left brain ability. Micah is an amazing scientist – moles and cute girls x r size fits ee eye ee eye oh. (Ed: molecular exercise physiology).

And I got all of my daddy’s good look.

The conclusion – he has none of any of  those to left.

Here’s all there is – Georgie (that’s Benjamin) made this.

I am sure he has more left to give, being the giver that he is. He says lots of people believe in give and take. He gives and they take.

I don’t know about those things.  But what I do know is the cuter I get the happier my daddy is (see the smile!).

One of these days, I hope I can give back to my daddy. For now, all I have are hugs. He says they are more than enough!

All of San Jose saw my daddy get drunk

All of San Jose saw my daddy get drunk

Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

The entire city of San Jose, everyone in the whole wide city, saw my daddy get drunk this week.

My daddy wrote about getting tic toc in cases (Ed: intoxicated) at his site.

Intoxicating blog traffic

Seems like a whole lot of people came to read one of his sites. About the same number of people who lives in San Jose.  (Yeah! He and I both know the way. He drives and I ride in the back.)

Daddy is a professional blogger. He knows how to write, what to write, when to write stuff so that lots and lots of people come to read. He makes money, too. Buys me stuff from the Disney store and takes me places like to the movies to see Tangled and Rio. He also teaches others how to

石の上にもう三年 – 3 years on a rock

石の上にもう三年 – 3 years on a rock

Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

My daddy teaches others how to blog, how to get people to come to their blogs. He says people come to mine. But I never see them. He says it’s because the readers come by birds in twos and threes. (Ed: virtually).

One of the questions he gets asked is “How long does it take for a blog to catch on?”

3-year old Problogger Mia Mei

The Japanese say ‘石の上にもう三年´. It means 3 years on a rock….which means, if something can last 3 years, it will likely continue on after that.

3 years!? That’s a whole life time!!

But…the good news is I guess that means I am
