Why you should backup your Wordpress Blogs Regularily

lets make money onlineThere are many reasons to backup your WordPress blog and make sure you always have a copy of it in case something goes wrong. Your database might crash, you might accidentally delete some of your posts or files, and you might even need to roll back to an earlier version of your WordPress blog. It's a simple fact that computers fail all the time. A hard drive might crash out and many people don't realize that your website is simply sitting on a computer somewhere that has all the same problems as your computer. That computer might blue screen, it might not turn on one day, the hard drive might stop. But either way something might go wrong and databases crash all the time. If the database crashes it might lose the entire thing. It might lose your several last year's worth of WordPress posts, comments, users, everything might be gone in a single second.

But if you've backed up your WordPress site you can restore it later on and get access to it any time you want. Even if everything goes wrong, set it up again exactly the way it was. And even ignoring database crashes you might accidentally delete something. I know I do that all the time. You might delete the wrong comment, the wrong blog post and even empty the trash and never have a way to get that back. I know that sometimes even my webhost is fixing a database issue and they will delete something without me having to do anything. So even if you think you're perfect and you never make a mistake you might delete something and it's better safe than sorry. It's worth taking those few seconds to backup your WordPress blog so that you can get it back whenever you need to.

Speaking of getting stuff back whenever you need to, would you write a 50 page term paper in Microsoft Word and never save it along the way? Of course not. You might type one page and save it, another page and save it. Why not treat your WordPress blog like a Word document? Which means you might set up the WordPress theme, now you want to take a backup right at that point. Then add in some extra posts, take a backup right there.  Every week take a backup so if you ever need to get back to an earlier part, maybe you made one change to your theme and you liked it, but then changed a graphic and you didn't like it. You want to get back to that earlier change that you backed up your site at every point along the way, you can get back anything you ever need.

That's why you should backup your WordPress blog, in case your database crashes, you accidentally delete some stuff, you need to go back to an earlier version.

Either way you should backup your WordPress blog right away, right now. Use this backup plugin to safely keep copies of your WordPress blog at

Is this the Answer to Small Business Website Needs?

Many small business owners are at the mercy of website designers and website developers who charge high hourly rates, not only for the original website design but also for those
essential updates, modifications, price/rate changes, product updates, special offers, etc.

030106 Wordpress Theme
Small business owners are held hostage when the website needs any such content updates. Why? because Website designers and website developers know that if they create a website for their clients that is difficult to use and understand, the business owner will have to keep
coming back to them for updates and modifications.

Add this insult to the already astronomical price applied to have a new website designed and
you can be thousands of dollars in the hole before your website reaches its first birthday.

Is there an alternative I hear you ask? Well I am pleased to say that the answer is a
resounding YES.The product itself is FREE, yes FREE. You will still incur charges for a
domain name and for hosting the website but these would also apply to a specifically
designed website. Also if you are not confident to do the initial work in setting up this
product there are lots of people who will do that for you for less than $200.

So what is this product....?     WORDPRESS

WordPress was known as the No.1 blogging platform but over the last 2 years it has been
substantially developed and is now a true content management platform as well, which because it is free, has hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of users. Furthermore, there is an
army of web developers all working and contributing to make it more secure and to keep it up
to date.

Wordpress is theme driven which means the layout/look of your site can be changed in minutes
without any skills being needed. There are thousands of free themes available and thousands
more premium themes you can purchase (usually for less than $100).

Further great features resulting from this massive user base are the large number of addons
available which can extend the functionality of WordPress beyond that of just a normal
website. Known as "Plugins" the majority of these addons are again available free of charge.

Wordpress in its basic form is liked by search engines, including Google, and with the
addition of one of the free SEO plugins available the chances of high search engine exposure
Tigopedia Theme
is  increased.

On top of all that, and probably its best feature, is the graphic user interface (GUI) which makes it possible for the web layperson to make updates and additions to their own website,
including inserting pictures, videos, RSS feeds, and more....

If you can create an email then you can use Wordpress!

Its popularity and ease of use have also given rise to a number of more sophisticated "plugins" that provide all the features necessary to perform a specific operation. A full Small Business app (such as "Expand2Web") and a Membership app ("Premise") are just 2 that integrate seamlessy within Wordpress.

All in all, Wordpress is the answer to most small business website requirements and one I
recommend without any hesitation.

How to get targeted Twitter followers

Wouldn't it be great if you could find a way to get a constant stream of followers on twitter, without spending hours each day sending out tweets, re-tweets, replying to messages and finding followers?

Well, the innovative and time saving solution that many people are turning to is "twitter automation". With an automatic twitter friend adder you can set your account on auto pilot and let the software take care of the dirty work.

Never again will you spend a night cold and alone on twitter, wishing you had more followers. The technological age has brought us amazing tools that can make our online social life much easier to manage, and more fun too!

Using an automated twitter friend adder is easy, and is not limited to simply adding random strangers to your list. With a good twitter adder you can also remove friends who do not follow you back, and you can automatically respond to @ messages.

The most powerful twitter software allows you to search the entire twitter social network for people with common interests, related tweets, and favorite celebrities. You can even filter your friend searches by location and follow people who follow certain users.

For example, if you wanted to follow people who follow Dr. Phil you can set your twitter friend adder to add only people who follow Dr. Phil. This works for any account on twitter, not just celebrities!

The benefits of using automatic twitter software don't end there. With great software like "TWEETADDER" you can load up hundreds of tweets in advance and set them to go out at the perfect time.

You'll never forget to send out an important tweet again because your twitter friend adder will take care of it for you, but be aware, have a number of personal/humour tweets available to send at regular intervals. Otherwise your "followers" will think you are a spammer if all you yweet are business opportunities.

Why not take advantage of technology in these fast times, and let the machines do all the time consuming work for you? It's no wonder so many people are turning to twitter automation to get more twitter followers... It's just too easy!

By simply setting my twitter account on auto pilot I have been able to go from less than 200 followers to over 7000 in just a four months! The best part is that it literally only takes a few minutes to set it up, and after that it's smooth sailing!

Don't waste your valuable time trying to get more followers on twitter when you can let a twitter friend adder do it for you! You can spend that time doing more important things and still get a ton of new followers each and every day.
