The seven deadly sins in make money blogging

I have a very hectic week because my children all return to school, kindie and college. As a mom with four boys whose age range from 18 years old to 6 years old, I have to deal with tiny sandals to three piece suits (for the chef-wannabe) to Government aided books to crayons and a million other things. I took a week off from my voluntary work at the cancer hospital because I was worried about separation anxieties. It turns out that my little boy was so excited about school, he cannot stop talking about ‘School is so fun, I want to go back tomorrow’. Phew…

So, I have no time to do any serious blogging or do any researches. Therefore, let’s look at what are the seven deadly sins. Actually, seven deadly sins is part of our Christian faith, a reminder that we can go to hell if we are ruled by these. Of course, don’t take it so seriously because not every one of us go to the extreme until we deserve hell. Hehehe, once, someone told me that we humans are built not to do wrong and hence, it is harder to sin than to do good things. Comforting, eh?

But it is fun to see how this seven deadly sins apply in our make money blogging venture.

LUST – Do not waste too much time watching porn till you have no interests in making money.

GLUTTONY – Do not eat too much if you are a food blogger, eating on the pretext of blogging materials. You will end up fat and broke.

GREED – Do not buy more domains than you can manage.

SLOTH – Do not take too much time writing a post or updating a blog or Google spiders will never visit you or index your blog.

WRATH – Do not lose your temper too often on a business-like blog like make money blog because people who read serious blogs have no sense of humour.

ENVY – Do not envy your competitors pagerank, alexa ranking, technorati ranking, traffic or awards. Spending time comparing those stats only give you ulcers.

PRIDE – Do not get too puff up to reply your comments. And you may lose that PR 6/10 the next time Google pagerank updates again.

So there you go, the sage hath speakth. Hehehe.

    lilian, do you mean that it’s ok if we do not reply all our comments?

    I am most guilty of SLOTH cos’ I can’t seem to stop myself from spending lots of time writing a post, then preview, correct errors, then preview, check links, then preview, until I am finally happy with it. HOHOHO.

    A little ENVY too cos’ I blame myself for not starting my blog early enough, so now I can only *drool* at other’s PR and Alexa, and not vice versa.

    Btw, anyone knows how to “invite” the Alexa spider to crawl and index again? Seems like it has been quite a while no update?
