I’ve always had a bit of entrepreneurial ADD, and I’m always thinking of the next project or idea. Lately, I’ve been toying with the idea of building a network of websites, and to get somewhat serious about blogging, (well, as serious as I can be, doing it in my free time between work and family).
One of my hobbies and habits is to pick up domain names that match some “big idea” that I’ve had, and I’ll throw up a simple site or something, or just hold onto the domain for one of those “rainy day” projects.
I recently picked up a copy of WP Robot, which is an auto-blogging plugin which will automatically post and update a blog with content from ebay, amazon, articlebase, and other sources. I think this will help me keep some of my sites updated, and hopefully be able to generate some affiliate commissions as well. It is SLICK! I showed it to a couple of my co-workers and they were impressed with how it worked, and how it simply automated a blog.
Now, I understand that SE’s and readers alike prefer to have genuine hand-written content, and so for my blogs, I’ll still post articles that I write myself. As well as comment on happenings and other things. But by having an automation tool, I can also have some filler things within my blog.
Who knows! perhaps in a year, I’ll have a nice little blog empire that will pay for a vacation to somewhere tropical.
