How to Get Rich Blogging

Ken Kelly, aka Dennis the Peasant, provides a detailed handy dandy guide on how to get rich by creating a highly trafficked weblog with little or no actual writing talent. Along the way, he insults almost every successful blogger on both sides of the aisle and their readers, often humorously.

In Part One: What Do I Blog About?, he advises, “Remember, you are not a United Way agency. Your job is to generate interest, not to educate or inform: Interest means traffic, and traffic means money.”

Part Two: Know Your Audience explains that, “Everybody else reads blogs during work hours because it’s the one thing they can actually do in that cubicle that doesn’t suck as bad as work itself.” He also has some very good tips for producing tons of posts every day without doing any thinking or writing.

Part Three: Your Blog’s Theme teaches how to quickly come up with a cookie cutter formula to attract a niche audience without ever having to say anything original.

Part Four: Your Blogging Persona builds on the previous lesson.
