1. Sell Your Blog for the
Bloggers are looking under every rock for ways to
monetize their blogs.
But most of them aren't doing one of the easiest things
possible to get massive exposure and earn a little
money. They aren't publishing their blogs in the Kindle
An Amazon employee told me this week that only 4,050
blogs are available for the Kindle. I almost fell over!
There are, roughly, more than 6.7 million blogs. If my
math is correct, that means less than 1 percent of the
bloggers publish their blogs at https://kindlepublishing.amazon.com.
Go there now for instructions on how to get started.
Kindle Blogs are auto-delivered wirelessly to the Kindle
and updated throughout the day. They are fully
downloaded onto your Kindle so they can be read even

I know 27 other ways to make money from blogging and I
explained them all during the webinar "27 Ways to

producer visualize the segment.
If you've written a book about dogs, let the station
know you'll bring your lovable collie with you. (These
shows LOVE animals.)
What about props? If you have them, mention them.

counter-intuitive messages such as "How to lose weight
by eating buttered popcorn."
During the webinar I hosted on Thursday, author Clint
Arthur walked the audience through the most important
elements of a segment proposal and showed them exactly
what it looks like. He also listed the four ways to
pitch TV shows and explained why don't have to be
good-looking or slim (even though the hosts are) to get
onto local shows. Tips galore!
Bingo came into Cole Hein's life when he was just 2
years old to assist the boy with an undiagnosable
disorder that stops Cole from breathing. The dog has

"lick it list" of things he wanted Bingo to experience
before she dies. Grab a tissue and watch it here.
