Blogging Tip – 10 Things Bloggers Should Consider

1) You need a great laptop or desktop. You will be on your computer all the time. I use a Mac for everyday and my Chrome book when I travel.

2) You need a fast internet speed

3) You obviously need a domain name. My blogging tip is for you to buy it through Go Daddy.

4) You will need hosting iPage



iPage is cheap and the service is awesome. You can also host multiple sites on the same host.  is fine until your blog gets bigger than I would transfer your blog to Big Scoots. This statement was made prior to me trying iPage until you get several thousand posts you should be fine on iPage.

Chutzpah: Burden of Proof

ChutzpaChutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.

chutzpah Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment.

Wow! If you have a theory that is wonderful. The point of a theory is you do not share it unless you have proof. I have to say I never really networked until this year. I was frankly too busy raising and having my family and working at  my other job and blogging was for fun. I decided to start to network because blogging is lonely and I have a lot to learn. I have met several awesome bloggers and I have run into several bloggers that honestly make me ill.

The problem is certain people make up stories. Then they spread them. It is kind of like online high school. If you knew me in high school I didn’t put up with bullying then either. I was friends with everyone. I mean why not?  Last night one of my blogging buddies received a nasty note from another blogger accusing her of taking match-ups. She wrote her a really nasty note. I guess I hit my limit with bloggers behaving badly and I wrote her a note demanding she apologize. She does NOT have proof and honestly matching up coupons with the sales ad isn’t hard. We all have coupon databases that match the coupons to the products.  It takes time but it is not brain surgery. I hope this blogger does what she should and sends my friend an apology because without proof it is called harassment.

I decided I was going to have some Chutzpah and stand up for my friend. She is too nice. She was just going to ignore this person. I think if we ignore bullies they just get more powerful and that is not okay! I hope you take the route of right no matter how difficult it is.
