One of the questions I get often is how to build a popular blog. I got a private message from one friend on Facebook 2 days ago who said “Enstine, your new blog is getting so popular. How do you do it?”

Many people all over wonder how others do things to work for them. If it works for me, it can work for you. That’s right!

Now, I often give two answers to this question on how to build a popular blog;

  • Work smart and work like an ant – Get it quick
  • Take your time and build it gradually

As expected, many bloggers want to build a popular blog so fast. That’s achievable but you have to be an ant 😉

There are two entities involved:

  1. The blogger first
  2. The blog second

I have seen very popular bloggers with some little known blogs. For the most part, these popular bloggers have several blogs. Some of these blogs are just not a major part of their blogging career.

Now, there are also some little known bloggers that run very popular blogs. They have succeeded in building a community that runs their blog.

However, to be able to build a popular blog in just 90 days, you’ll need to work smart and like an ant. Now, these are a couple of things I recommend you do as you strive to building a well known blog.

How to build a popular blog in just 90 days

1 -> Write top content that’s loved

The very first step at building a popular blog is constantly publishing the kind of ‘wow’ content that attracts readers. There is no magic key here! The more you publish sharable content, the more the news about your blog spreads.

You have to go beyond just writing 500 words posts and produce in-dept treatment of specific topics. That’s the key to writing viral content. It’s not about the number of words. It’s about your mastery of the subject and how you drive understanding home.

Google’s RankBrain is a step towards rewarding authors with a deep understanding and treatment of specific topics on their blogs.

2 – > Build an attractive blog

The attractiveness of your blog is a strong factor. There are several ingredients that make your blog more attractive and sticky;

  • The theme (graphics, colors, fonts, responsiveness, etc). Get the right theme here
  • Photos or medial objects on your blog posts.
  • Load speed of your blog. Host with WPX Hosting for top load speed
  • Browser compatibility.
  • Engagement and interactivity
  • Less annoying elements (popups, banners, etc).
  • and of course attractive articles.

These things put together will compose the attractiveness of your blog. Any of these that’s not a factor of professionalism will be a deterrent.

3 – > Be active on social media

This is almost no news. If you want to build a popular blog as early as possible, social media most be a strong factor. 90 days may not be enough time to build a huge follower-base but joining Facebook groups and and other social media platforms is a fast way to start spreading the news and growing. Respond to comments, tweets and retweets to attract more attention.

4 – > Using social media applications

There are some recommended Facebook, Google+ and Twitter apps for bloggers. These apps generate real likes, followers, retweets, tweets, shares and thus traffic. Some of these applications are free and include EasyRetweet, Viralcontentbee, Triberr, etc. These apps don’t only generate traffic but also help in building relationships with other bloggers.

5 – > Content sharing community sites

Content syndication sites are great places to pull traffic to your blog and spread the word. They are also wonderful communities to meet and network with like-minded bloggers. Here are some sharing communities I use and recommend:

6 -> Blog commenting

There is been a lot written on the Internet on blog commenting. As a matter of fact, it’s a powerful expansion tool if done right. You have to leave reasonable and related comments on related blogs. The key to succeeding in commenting is reading the post thoroughly and sharing your own view about the topic discussed.

Another result driven tip is to leave replies on comments made by other visitors. Don’t just reply to the comment on top (like I see many do) simply because your want your comment to be on top.

Trigger conversation in your comments and remain interactive. Make it real discussion and avoid simple words or few sentences just to build link.

7 -> Guest Blogging

Although this blogging activity (just like blog commenting) is being messed up by link-hungry bloggers and some SEO firms, it remains an important tool in building a popular blog and networking with bloggers in your niche. Submitting your top contents to popular blogs in your niche of course will bring you huge benefits – traffic, backlinks, relationships, authority, etc.

The first thing to do is read the guest posting guidelines on these blogs. Most blogs do provide details on the type of posts they accept. Reading, understanding and following these guides is the first step towards getting accepted.

Often, you will have to decide between posting on someone else blog and posting on yours. Now you think the content you have just written is killer. Remember no blog will accept thrash. They need your best. The content you submit on other blogs must not be lesser than what you publish on your own blog.

8 – > Attending live event

Live blogging events are fertile grounds to gain popularity and expand. That’s where you meet other bloggers physically and share points on a more practical note. Don’t miss any opportunity to attend a live event in your area. While on the event ground, make an effort to meet and chat with more successful bloggers.

9 – > Constantly run Contests and Giveaways

This strategy is the killer and can make your blog very popular in a very short term. People love winning stuffs so they always look for opportunities to win something. If you want it even hot, do a cash prize giveaway.

From my experience, RaffleCopter makes your contest go viral. The reason is that it has a reward feature. Participants are given a unique link to promote the event and earn points. Given that each participant has higher chances of winning with higher points, they will always share their links to earn the points.

At the moment of writing this post, each visit that you bring to the contest page through your unique link earns a point and each participation earns points. You see why participants will get into hot promotion of your contest?

10 -> Build a list

In this post, I detailed out some helpful points on building a list that keeps your subscribers. List building is a way of going popular as it’s a hot source of traffic. If you have trust from your subscribers, they will help share your content bring in more traffic.

These are some few points to help you on how build a popular blog in 90 days. Follow these tips actively and see where your blog goes after just 3 months. Your Alexa ranking should be within 100K. You should be having 300+ more visitors per day

11 -> Start Pinning

Piniterest is a huge source of traffic. Trust me the result you get from this traffic tool is tremendous. I see it as a social media and SEO tool. SEO because a huge part of it is based on keyword discoveries.

That’s it

This post is part 15 in the series to create a blog that makes money. Check out the previous parts here. In the next part, we are looking at earning backlinks and getting to Google page #1

Sperm Donation – Make $10,000 by donating sperm

If you are a healthy, young male, and able to pass an intensive screening process, you can make money with sperm donation. As a sperm donor donor, you will be compensated and you will also help individuals that cannot produce a child on their own. The sperm donation process is quite involved and requires commitment and patience.
Sperm donation

Sperm Donation

Selling your seed can net you up to a $1000 a month, but it’s not as easy or as fun as the media (or movies) makes it sound, and very few men actually qualify. You need to be in excellent health, have a clean medical background, be within a certain age, height and weight range, have a post secondary education, and be attractive (who determines that, we are not sure). You can’t use tobacco or another drugs (in any form), and can’t be a heavy drinker. You also need to be able to “deliver” an amount of sperm that is about twice that of what a typical guy produces. If you meet the rigorous requirements, theoretically, you could donate once every 24 hours but most sperm banks prefer variety and may not want large amounts of your sperm. We know you are special, but the world doesn’t need 200 of you. Compensation for your DNA can range from $35 to $100 depending on the size of the sperm bank, how much sperm you can produce in a single session, and how often you donate. Anonymous donors typically get paid less as well. An individual sperm, on average is worth about 0.00000033 cents each, but don’t worry, men produce anywhere from 40-600 million sperm per session.

Being a sperm donor takes two basic male desires — orgasms and money — and, in a seemingly “too good to be true” moment, combines them. That said, sperm banks hold to exceptionally high standards: The extensive, multilayered screening process eliminates about 95% of us.
Prepare to expose your family tree to a thorough, honest dissection, going back two generations. You’ll be asked about tattoos, drug use, experimental sex, your grandma’s TB, your uncle’s alcoholism, and your mother’s schizoid episodes.

If invited in, you’ll be given a sterile cup and offered “aides” in the form of movies or magazines, or both; just don’t count on a hand job from the hottie at the front desk. You’ll be instructed not to use a lubricant, as it can contaminate the “specimen” (or load, or wad, whichever you care to call it). Your boys will then be tested for everything from the obvious (sperm count) to the unexpected (forward momentum), and that’s just for starters.

If accepted as a donor, you’ll earn between $50 to $200 per specimen. You’ll be expected to rub one out into their cups two to three times per week and make a commitment to the program that lasts six months or longer depending on the policies of the clinic. Because they need a consistently potent specimen, you’ll have to abstain from having an orgasm anywhere but at the clinic; and yes, they’ll know if you’re cheating on them.

Sperm banks can be found in almost every major city, but because of discretion, they aren’t always easy to locate. You can try a Yellow Pages search for “sperm banks” in your area, or there are websites such as SpermBanker.com that operate as information clearing houses.

Steps

1. Determine if you are a viable candidate to donate sperm by meeting the basic requirements.

  • You must be a healthy male between the ages of 20-40 (age range varies among facilities).
  • You must be attending college or have graduated.
  • You and your sexual partner must have no history of sexually transmitted diseases.
  • You are required to make a commitment to stay in the area of the sperm donation clinic for 1 to 2 years and make up to 2 donations per week.
  • Conditions that automatically disqualify candidates from donating sperm include hemophilia, HIV-positive status, intravenous needle use or a predisposition to certain genetic medical conditions.
  • Candidates will also be disqualified if they were adopted, have had sex with another male, have engaged in intravenous needle use, or have smoked marijuana or used cocaine (past or present use).
  • After meeting the initial requirements, continue to the screening process.

2. Schedule a screening appointment with your chosen clinic.

3. Attend your appointment. Be prepared to participate in any of the following events.

  • Complete a thorough medical history questionnaire. Generational family history will be explored, as will your current and past health issues, if any.
  • Provide a semen sample. The clinic will test the sperm for several different factors, including count, motility and viability. You may have to provide more than one sample.
  • Submit to blood and urine tests. The clinic will evaluate for infectious diseases, genetic conditions, and perform blood typing.
  • Receive a comprehensive physical examination.

4. Get your application approved.

Once you have been accepted into the clinic’s donor program, you will be educated on the clinic’s sperm collection process and the donation schedule. You will be compensated for each successful sperm donation. The sperm collection process, compensation fees and scheduling vary by clinic.

Who cannot be donors?

There are a number of reasons why a man cannot be accepted as a sperm donor. This is to minimize the risks of transmitting infection to those women inseminated with the donated sperm and to minimize the risk of transmitted common genetic diseases or malformations to any children born. Reasons for being unable to accept a man as a sperm donor include:

Age
Because there is evidence to suggest that genetic abnormalities are more common with older fathers, most men who donate are under 40 years of age.

Adoption
People who are adopted can donate only if there is availability of a family medical history. It is necessary to examine their family history for evidence of serious inherited disorders that could be passed on to any children born following DI.

Promiscuity
Anyone who is sexually promiscuous is of increased risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted infection. Although each accepted donor is screened at the beginning and the end of the donation process, few clinics would risk taking on as a donor someone who may subsequently acquire an infection.

Drugs
Certain medicines as well as recreational drugs can affect the production of sperm or in some cases damage sperm. Moreover, the use of some recreational drugs can lead to sexual promiscuity and the risks that this carries.

Heritable conditions
Because some birth defects (e.g. spina bifida, cleft palate, hare lip) and serious diseases (e.g. diabetes, epilepsy, schizophrenia, asthma and hemophilia) are genetically linked, it is not possible to accept as a donor any individual where there is a family history of these conditions.

Time
Becoming a sperm donor involves a regular commitment over several months, as well as being able to keep in touch with the center for about one year; a clinic would not normally be able to accept as a donor anyone who cannot make this commitment.

Previous donations
Because the number of children that can be born following the use of a donors sperm is regulated by law, a center would not accept as a donor an individual who has previously donated at another center.

Tips

  • The screening process can take up to 6 weeks to complete.
  • In some clinics, initial sperm donations are frozen and quarantined for an extended period. These donations are then retested for diseases. Once cleared, the donor will begin receiving compensation.
  • Check with your clinic for sperm donation procedures. Some clinics require donations be made on-site, while others allow off-site collection. Off-site collections must be transported at body temperature and be received by the clinic within 1 hour of collection.

Warnings

  • No ejaculations are permitted for up to 5 days before scheduled sperm donations.
  • No lubricants, saliva, water, or condoms are allowed during the sperm donation process. These items can kill sperm.
  • Donors must sign contracts denouncing any parental responsibilities or contact with offspring that may result from their donation.
