What is a blog exactly? It’s just a bunch of text and pics and hyperlinks. That’s all it is. What makes a blog unique? It’s all about the readers. It’s not even the content. Blog readers are the ones that enable blog owners to make a few extra bucks. The readers are the ones who grow the blog. Why don’t bloggers focus more on their readers? Why don’t we pay our readers for ads? Why don’t we hire our readers to do site design or seo? Why are we only paying off johnchow?
I recently gave out free ads to my readers. I also announced that i want to advertise on blogs owned by my readers. I sometimes ask my readers questions or consult them for their opinion. I do this cause i’m really interested and i do it cause i want more reader involvement with this blog.
I want to extend other services for my readers. Bloggernoob dot com gets steady traffic so i know there are a lot of regular readers of this blog. And amongst these readers, i think there are a lot of talented individuals. Instead of outsourcing my services and money to random stranger, i was thinking maybe i should do it from with in. I should consult my readers. To start it off, i have some work that i want to pay for. Specifically, i want to pay one of my readers for a site redesign of bloggernoob dot com. I know some of you are good with CSS and PHP and HTML so i was thinking i should hire one of you to do a site redesign. I’ve bought a few unique wordpress themes from people on scriptlance and elance. I had them design a new one from stratch. I paid $80 for each theme. Instead of going to scriptlance or elance, i wanted to see if anyone of my readers wanted to redesign my blog for me. I’m willing to pay $80. It’s not a lot of money and if i get no takers on this, i’ll just hit up my coder on scriptlance. Just thought i’d run it by you guys first. If you’re interested please leave me a comment or email me with your work samples. Thanks!
