Ileane Smith – I think is the name not requiring much introduction. Who might not have met Ileane if he/she is been on blogging for a while? Karl Foxley recently published a post to thank Ileane “Have You Met Ileane Smith from Basic Blog Tips?” I refer the post as her intro! Visit her blog at Basic Blog Tips (http://basicblogtips.com/).
Here goes her first guest post for SEO MMO Tips. I hope you’ll find the post useful and worth sharing the Luv!
Video podcasting is a great deal of fun and I find it to be one of the most enjoyable aspects of blogging. When I created the Ms. Ileane Speaks podcast almost a year ago, my primary goal was to provide free tutorials in the form of video screencasts. Each lesson includes step-by-step instructions for completing specific tasks online. A few highlights include, Installing CommentLuv on Blogger, Using Readability for Chrome, the SEO Site Tools Demo and of course there’s much more.
After recording more than 40 episodes, I must admit, it’s pretty challenging to build a high-quality resource library that attempts to cover many diverse topics effectively. Luckily for me, I get most of my inspiration from watching these 3 killer resources, who are known for setting high standards and leading by example.
Lisa Irby from 2Createawebsite
#1. On the top of my list is Lisa Irby from 2createawebsite. In addition to being the most powerful woman I know when it comes to online income, Lisa runs a popular webmasters forum called Website Babble, and she has two top-notch YouTube channels with a combined total of well over 5 million views. I subscribe to Lisa3876 and 2createawebsite and I strongly advice you to do the same. Here’s a sample of how kind, generous and knowledgeable Lisa is. In the following video she shows everyone how to increase earnings during the upcoming holiday season, by implementing targeted AdSense channels on their site.
#2. I’ve been a fan of the Lynda.com online tutorial website for a long time. Way before I started blogging I used to watch the free podcasts on iTunes. Recently I got accepted to their affiliate program but my recommendation of this service is my own opinion based on years of experience. The quality of the videos is unmatched, and the knowledge of the instructors at Lynda.com are the cream of the crop. You can watch introductory level lessons from literally hundreds of learning modules, or you can take advantage of a free 24 hour pass through my affiliate link.
#3. This final resource I need to share should be very familiar to every blogger but often goes overlooked. In grand WordPress style WordPress.tv explores every aspect of blogging.
Did you know on WordPress.tv you can learn:
- How to Create a Plugin
- How to Prevent Content Theft
- How to Use BuddyPress
- How WordPress Themes Changed the World
These are just a few examples of what you’ll find hiding in the WordPress.tv repository.
Now that you know my three favorite resources for viewing online video tutorials (well actually four if you include my YouTube channel) what are your favorites? Please share them with me.
