Fourblogger Moves One Step Forward in Blogging

Hi,

This is small update from Fourblogger.Com.

You know that Fourblogger.Com is creating Videos for every post. But till now, all videos are just screencasts and slide presentations. I haven’t shown my face yet. Still I can’t afford to buy a video camera. I am trying to get one from any of my friends. Once I get it, you can see me in videos. I  have planned to start taking videos later this week.

Why am I doing videos in blogging?

When I started Fourblogger.com, I decided to create screencasting video tutorials as an experiment to know how much far videos able to drive traffic for a blog. At that time, I did not know the real potential of creating videos.

The result was a great surprise. My videos started to receive more views and I got more traffic to my blog.

I am testing other techniques also to drive traffic for this blog. At the same time, I don’t want to leave videos anymore. I want to increase my video views. Again I am taking “videos” into my lab to test further. I will submit all reports related to video blogging in coming days.

As an experiment, I will be talking in my videos that will be uploaded later of this week. Forgive my poor vocabulary, bad accent and nervous in videos. I can remember that, before two years, I attended a software company’s personal interview, I could not talk anything. So the interviewer asked me “Ok. Will you please tell me, What you have done from today morning until this minute? Oh. Bad. I talked word by word, not sentence by sentence. I couldn’t even frame sentences.

So, let us see. :(

Note: I will upload captions in YouTube so that even my accent not understandable, you can get what I want to say.

I thank you for continuously supporting me.

    Hey man, first of all, thanks for everything, this page has been so useful to me!
    I am having only 2 problems and You are the person that most knows about Wordpress+Thesis that I know, haha.
    First of all, here is my blog http://bloginthebox.com
    My first problem: How can I do for the pictures or videos I post, to appear in the main page too? I put pictures on my posts, but they dont appear on the main page.
    And 2nd problem: How can I add a graphic footer for posts? Like you know, for example, in the main page, after I posted, at the bottom of it, it would say like “Posted by – 22 July 2009 – 10 Comments” like for example this page http://pablogeo.com
    Thanks for everything I hope you can give me a hand!

    Hi 4 Blogger,

    I’m happy to hear that you are testing some things. Your videos have been very helpful to me, when setting up my site with Thesis.

    I have to admit there were times, when I would have to rewind, because you are talking so fast. I think all is well with your videos, just slow down and talk slowly.

    Keep up the good work! :)

    Hi, you prepare great videos and also your vocabulary is good. Your vocabulary is better than my vocabulary, believe me.
    Please go on video tutorials. I am sure most of bloggers need your video tutorials. I wish, i could send my webcam to you.

    Why do not you place google adsense or other advertisement programs in fourblogger.com? I am sure you can earn good money with adsense.

    Thank you for all tutorials and information articles…

    Hi Friend,

    Very much happy about your encouraging comments.

    I got today sony Ipod from my friend which has video camera. It looks enough and trying to take videos. I will upload videos in coming week.

    I haven’t get approved for google adsense even for my onlineideas.info and My fourblogger traffic doesn’t match with other ad networks also.

    Currently I have traffic targets. Once I achieved them, I will try to monetize my blog.

    I really love your friendship. You wish to send me your camera. what else will be more than this great to me? Thanks for continuous encouragement.

    Oh thanks for the reply man, the thing about the code I already resolved it! thanks anyway.
    what i couldn’t resolve is the thing i was telling you about, putting a graphic footer after each post saying published by, date and comments, like the blog i told you http://pablogeo.com
    it would be nice if u made a hook for it!
