Alleba Blog – Philippines Top 100 Blogs for 2008

Visited 18497 times

Andrew Dela Serna’s Alleba Blog got included in this year’s Philippines Top 100 Blogs for 2008.

Andrew, who also owns Ratified, shares his blog secret.

Janette: What have you done this year for your blog that contributed to its growth?

Andrew: I try to write about topics that I’m interested in, but admittedly I don’t write as often as I’d like. My older posts are still what gives me regular traffic. Hopefully when I have the time, I can go back to blogging full blast.

Janette: What marketing strategy works best for your blog?

Andrew: I can’t specify a marketing strategy. What works best for me is to write a great post and promote it to my online friends through Plurk, Twitter and forums. And everything else will follow.

Janette: How much % of your annual income do you attribute to your blog as the source?

Andrew: Strictly speaking, only 5% of my annual income comes from blogging. There are other avenues to earn money online. You just need to know where to look.

Janette: What tips can you give to bloggers who would like to achieve blog growth?

Andrew: Find your niche. Blog about something you’re passionate about. At first don’t be too concerned about earning money immediately. Build your blog with quality posts. Avoid paid posts, at least for the moment. To keep track of your blog’s progress, get ratified!

    Dear Ratified,

    I just want to ask what are the requirements to be included in your organization?

    I already emailed about thrice regarding my application but unfortunately, no response I got.

    I do believe I have quality posts and I am slowly driving traffic into it.

    I hope I will also be soon “get ratified”.
