There is nothing worse than reading lame content. Â People tend to like reading things as though you are having a conversation with them. Â This is what is known as â€œconversational speakâ€.

â€œPeople online make money with their WordPress blogs by an affiliate program that matches their content.â€
â€œIf you really want to make some money with your WordPress blogs, you need to consider who your customer is. Â For example, say I am â€œJoe Blowâ€ looking for a solution to get rid of a mole on my forehead. Â What sort of program would I be looking for? Â What sort of products will remove a mole and is there anything that is natural that can cover this up without me having to consider surgery?
Answer your potential customersâ€™ questions or they will mozy along to a site that does.â€
Write interesting content and people will actually read it. Â If people want to read a technical definition of something they will go to Wikipedia. Â Help people understand stuff and relate to things by talking to them as though you would your mom or your best friend.
