The post by Hyder from everybodygoto got me thinking and I think I want to ramble on about this term ‘problogger‘. I know Hyder briefly from one of the paid post forum but I think both of us have left the paid post field for a while. However, I still subscribe to his blog because I like a variety of bloggers on my reading list. Hyder said :
How do you define a ProBlogger?
– A person who has built a reputation on a subject via an online weblog
Do you concur?
Well, here are my opinions on problogger.
Problogger is a term people bestowed upon you and not the other way round. I normally snigger at those bloggers who labelled themselves problogger just because they become a full-time blogger.
Problogger has to have multiple skills and that includes writing, technical (i.e. all those coding and programs), business and marketing.
Problogger must be a generous leader, i.e. sharing their wisdom and knowledge.
Problogger has to earn the respect.
Problogger has to have an brandname.
Problogger must exudes a personality online that people immediately can remember.
Problogger is not measured by the amount of money they make but by how they made it. I wouldn’t call those internet marketeers who sell ebooks that cause noobs to buy even more ebooks and softwares to make money a problogger.
In conclusion, if you ask me if we have any problogger in Malaysia, I will give you a blank look and say…HUH? Come again? What was your question again?
So, how do you define a problogger? Do you think you can slap on that title in your about page and start thinking you are a problogger already?
SEM strategies like pay per click and per inclusion work well only with domain names of trusted web servers. The hosting service should be able to do this with or without broadband. A webmaster is aware of these facts.
