Pictures in Google Earth

I really enjoy using Google Earth, as many of you probably do as well. One if the things I enjoy most about Google Earth is looking at the photos that people have uploaded through Panoramio. They usually show up as blue dots on Google Earth. Back in January I submitted a few photos I took…

Epiblogger Valentines Giveaway!

Happy Valentines! It has been a really great month and a half since we opened the doors here at Epiblogger and we wanted to celebrate a little with our first giveaway. We thought we could give away our first month and a half of income to one lucky reader, but then you would end up…

Making Money is about Trust

If you want to make money on the Internet, you need to earn the trust of your readers. Trust is something you have to earn, it does not come easily. Readers have to trust that you are telling them the truth. Unfortunately, we live in a culture that does not trust. While the reasons are…

Important Notice to BlogRush

Domain Name Giveaway!

I was looking through my list of domain names and have come to the conclusion that I will never develop thewebhostingforum.com into a website. I currently have the domain parked over at NameDrive, and while it has brought in the odd click I think I would rather give it to a new owner, someone that…

Word of Mouth Marketing Still Relevant?
