Blog vs Dog 0:1

A black and white Border Collie dog on the beach on a windy day.

You might have wondered why SEO 2.0 has been so silent for over year. I’ve promised much but couldn’t make it all happen. That’s life.

I got a puppy in early 2009 and it has changed my life.

During the first two months I had to go for a walk each hour and still the dog’s pee or poo ended up on the floor in many cases stinking in my room for a while before I discovered on entering.


Move on up!

On the other hand a dog makes you move. I moved a lot ever since. For the first few months even at night.

The stationary lifestyle of a geeky SEO blogger doesn’t make much sense for your body.

A dog is the healthiest choice you can make. You get forced to move at least three times a day.

My dog is now fully grown and instead of having to go for a walk every hour, every two or three hours I only have to go out three times a day. I only walk the dog once during business hours.

My mind hasn’t been completely off business blogging.

I’ve almost managed to get a full fledged sponsor for the blog at one time. I wanted to make it more popular again before I make my final offer but failed to spare enough time to do so.

Two well known SEO companies were willing to sponsor me though. Maybe I find someone in the future. In case you want to sponsor this blog to get publicity contact me now!


How do I finance this blog?

I’ve considered 3 other ways to finance this blog so that I can keep blogging here without having to work more for money on other projects.

  1. crowdfunding/microfinance
  2. additional services
  3. paid content/premium features

As you might know I blogged at other business blogs for clients, two German ones not related to SEO (one about gadgets, one about cycling) and of course the fabulous Oxford SEO company.

I’m still learning more and more on how to blog for money. I also learned how to make blogs profitable both for me and my clients. It works quite well for all 3 of them.

I’d like to share more insights on how profitable business blogging works in future.

I know I have promised it a year earlier already but then I still did not know yet that I would become a dog owner. In fact I had been wary of dogs for years during my youth and

at 20 I have even been bitten by a small black dog.

I didn’t get hurt but this in a way confirmed my aversion to dogs. Now guess what color and size my dog is?


Get my ebook to learn modern SEO

A few months ago I have even started to write a post called “7 Business of Blogging Clues a Puppy Can Teach You” but never finished it due to my manifold obligations. I guess I will finish it now.

In case you ask yourself whether I will introduce one of my three blog financing models I favor #1 and #2.

I won’t make you pay for straight blog content. I can offer you something you might want o pay for though. You can buy an ebook by now. It’s a complete guide to modern SEO.

What do you think: Would you pay a few dollars for an upcoming SEO 2.0 ebook? I’d preferred to keep free or rather donation based instead of selling it afterwards for a fixed amount of money.
