Top 100 Family blogs, DigitalMint version

Moms have always been one of the best bloggers out there. All of them have a lot to say about their family, about kids and each story will be unique and interesting.

Most of the mommy bloggers are SAHM with babies so their blogs are their way of expressing themselves, of sharing useful information they have learned from their own experience and mostly blogging is a good way to earn money.

If you are searching for useful parenting tips, for interesting product reviews or giveaways and especially in search for advertising opportunities on such blogs then you came to the right place. Feel free to check our list of top 100 family blogs.

Top 100 Travel blogs, DigitalMint version

Top 100 Travel blogs, DigitalMint version

 

If you browse the net you can find a lot of «Top 100 sites» in every niche. Every list has its own criteria. Some are based on Domain Authority, some on PR and we also found couple based on traffic. We even found some guys who managed to invent their own formula and we applause them.

Here at DigitalMint we thought: «We can do that, too». It’s a bit early for us to make a list with the help of our own formula, because it’s not finished yet. And since we don’t want to be like others we want our formula to be special. The only way to do it was to make it complicated and include everything: DA, PR, Alexa, Twitter and Facebook followers and other stuff…

But for now we want to represent you the list of «Top 100 Travel blogs». We have included the blogs of our friend-bloggers here. Some of them will be glad to see themselves in the Top 10, but some may be disappointed to see themselves in the end. But its numbers talking, so please no hard feelings.

And I would like to thank all our friends for working with us as making this list would be impossible without your help! Thank you all guys and have a great upcoming Christmas.

Benefits of guest posting

“Guest posting” is still one of the most important strategy for growing your blog readership and people to know your business better. This termin means writing and publishing article on someone else’s website.

Now let us quickly browse through these 3 reasons “Why guest posting is important?”

First of all in order to make guest post you need to contact the blogger and that brings you to the relationship with a new person from your niche! And that is always good. Second it can open the door to the already established comunity of bloggers, which will help you in the future to spread the word quickly.

And the last, but not least – guest posting is really good for search engines, of course if they are related to the blog itself! So if you didnt tried it dont hesitate.

How to be a successful Travel Blogger

Hello there, readers. We are hereby starting our blog. The first post of ours was about guest posting, because this is the essential purpose of our service. Besides that we are going to have several different rubrics in our blog, which will be dedicated to the others niches we are woking with. These are going to be CEO advices, our simple notices and even a few gospel truths. Some will find our content to be familiar, some will discover something new in our posts.

We will start with the Travel niche. Under this heading you are going to find the major points which are required to become a fine blogger on this topic. So noobs – pay attention. First you have got to remember – before becoming a travel blogger or starting a travel blog, you should first become a regular and passionate traveler. In other case there is no point writing about stuff you didnt experienced yourself. Then go buy yourself a good camera and keep looking for unusual photo opportunities. Dont forget to write about everything you see and experiences in your journal. Yesm you heard correct, cause sometimes we travel to places with no wifi (there are places witn no internet in this world). Our memory is not a computer, so its better to write it down and then upload to the blog.

Ok, since we have a camera, remember it does shoot video, not only photo – so use that option. And always remember to keep things real, as you experience them.

Back to Basics: The Concept of Reciprocity

Exchange

Once, long ago, the economic relationships between people were based on the principle of exchange: a pure product in exchange for another pure product. Twenty bags of millet in exchange for ten head of cheese, forty jugs of milk in exchange for three deer carcasses. Such a structure has worked flawlessly for countless ages, and each transaction partaker obtained exactly what he wanted. Fundamentals of subsistence farming now underlie the very beginning of the economy, but today the pure exchange ceased to exist, with the products replaced by the conventional units. Ancient alchemists believed that not only nascent economy, but also the entire universe exists on the basis of the principle of equal exchange. If you want to get something, you must give something in return equivalent. The time has passed, both alchemy and subsistence farming have sunk into oblivion, but nevertheless the law of the equivalent exchange is unyielding, and over the centuries its accuracy has been not diminished at all.

I have some sincere doubts that whatever person has some life goals less important, than the ones correlated to profit. And there is no wonder, that we are possessed by greed, because people are naturally hungry for gain. Although the principle of equal exchange is unwavering, the idlers of all times have tried to deceive or circumvent it. With every present day passed, there are more and more people who crave to earn money by any means necessary, while making the least effort. Somehow it is widely believed that the easiest way to do it is online. In a sense, this is certainly true, but it is not as straightforward as it might seem at a first glance.

Make money onlineFor people who dream to earn easy money on the internet, the principle of equivalent exchange must be a cornerstone. Internet is a zone free from the conventionalities and boundaries, but there are some laws which exist even online. And any virtual gold-digger is ought to remember that if he wants to get something, he must give something equivalent in return.

Let us endeavor a thought experiment and imagine you to be a private entrepreneur who wants to get rich on the internet without spending a decent amount of money on a start up and not really straining too much. You possess a website which should bring you profit, which means that you have a pure product that you are hoping to swap to get something in return, something you require, some conventional units – namely, money. But the laws of the Internet are strict and inflexible, and you will have to make considerable efforts to get a return an equivalently considerable profit. Here you are – an entrepreneur, who starts his own content production business, for instance. So what does it take? How much effort? How much devotion and loyalty?

Dating  As a baby step, you should vigilantly consider efficiency of your outreach process, because this is, basically, the only thing you can do to get in touch with those who can perform the exchange you are craving for so badly. The outreach process is very similar to dating: the same timid first moves, a fear to disappoint and or to appear stupid. The same timorous attempts to force the issues in one’s favor, then a gradual acquisition of trust and confidence, lastly more and more daring and reckless actions, some challenges to impress and delight, and, as a climax, a close and trusting relationship, an open and mutually respectful one. It requires great labor, an endless supply of patience and subtle knowledge in the field of human psychology, because this whole process is, inherently, advertising. And advertising without the knowledge of the intricacies of the human nature is advertising of a poor quality or is not advertising at all.

So, is it possible to get the users to like you, and if so, how to gain their trust and respect? How to achieve someone to wish for exchanging their pure product to yours?

You need to supply your website with interesting and relevant content which will be interesting for a specific audience. The content should be written effortlessly, witty, grammatically flawless.

If you want some qualitative content, you should do everything it takes to make this content faultless in every way. Provide your writer not only with paycheck and respect, but also with loads of information about the desired article. Give the name of article, describe in the tiniest details the topic you necessitate, clarify the role and the message of the article. Do not forget to mention of it is possible for him to use his own experiences in the content and the purpose for which he writes this particular article. Be specific about the site, on which the article will be placed, what audience it is intended for. Offer him examples, showing several similar articles to the one that you would like to get in result.

communicate directlyWhen the stage with the writer is completed and you have received the content you ordered, the time has come to communicate directly with the site owners/bloggers who will post your article on their site. Before you begin a dialogue with this “landlord”, carefully evaluate the available content, and make a decision, once again using the law of the equivalent exchange: would you get the desired return in exchange for a pure product? Is your content worthy of the chosen blog? Is it qualitative and interesting enough? Can you try again to put yourself in other people’s shoes, but this time not a writer, but a blogger or a site owner? Think if you would like such an article to be posted on your own site. If the answer to all the previous questions is yes, you can procrastinate no longer and safely send your inquiries to the bloggers and/or websites owners.

Next point, no less important than the previous one, is the placement of the client’s links in the body of the article. It is important for the reference in article to be appropriate, no matter where they are. Try to put in only those links which do not break the pattern of the article. Following once again the law of the equivalent exchange: will you as the reader consider these links to be worthy of your time and attention, would it be satisfactory to follow this link to the site? Is the site useful and interesting in the exact same measure that was your times valuable? If not, try to avoid adding a redundant link. Only link to those sites which are correspondent to the topic of the article.

It can be said that this is just a bunch of arguments on ethics and “laws” of Internet space. It can be said that this article is yet another example of what the content is about. It can be said that this is a reference to the concepts of long-forgotten days and generally does not make any sense. It can be said that it is life-affirming art sketch under the topic of: “do good and you shall be rewarded, even if you are online.” Countless things can be said and even more opinions can be drawn, but one thing remains the same.
