Recently, the Big Sexy was asked by by the blogger I’m a Man! I’m 41! to give advice to lowly, newbie conservative bloggers. In essence, he wanted AWD to share the recipe to my secret sauce for sexy, successful blogging. Being the benevolent AWD that I am, I was more than happy…especially if new conservative bloggers can help put a dagger into the cold heart of libtardism. Noblesse oblige. Here’s the email AWD received:

We are getting feedback on this from bloggers like Pam Geller, John Hawkins, BigFurHat @ IOTW, Dave Blount, John, im41 (BC), Weasel Zippers (Zip), Moe Lane, Karen (The Lonley Conservative), Jimmy Z, Milton Wolf), The Other,Robert Stacy McCain, Waznmentobe (Buffoon), and a host of lesser known but brilliant conservative bloggers – we would love it if you could throw in your two cents…

I am asking 50 of the brightest minds in the conservative blogosphere their views, so that I can compile a set a blogging best practices to help act as a guide for the thousands of grassroots conservative bloggers — so that as a
group we can be more effective at both attacking liberals and spreading the conservative message.

What the!? AWD being put into the same league as Big Fur Hat (may many furry hats be upon him) and Pamela Geller (may peace and death to jihad be upon her!)….count me in! If this guy is including AWD in with the 50 brightest minds in the conservative blogosphere….he’s in severely deep Dukakis!

Here’s the deal. I believe everyone should blog. Except libtards. Oh sure, your blog will suck el grande uno compared to AWD’s. But you still should blog. At least your mom will read it. Remember, AWD was once a lowly newbie himself before becoming one of the top 50 minds and the number one love man in the conservative blogosphere. Once. Only for a few minutes. At first, you may not have much traffic on your blog but just think of all the libtards you can piss off when they come across your right-wing extremist rantings! That alone is worth the price of a Go-Daddy URL registration!

So if any of y’all are thinking about starting a blog, here’s AWD’s pearls of sexiness to help you cut years off of figuring what the hell to do to have a moderately successful, supa-sexy blog like the AWD’s:

If you’re going to be a blogger, be bold. Say what you believe and don’t apologize for non-PC beliefs. Don’t allow your ideological enemies to define the rules of the game.

Write quality stuff and make it interesting. AWD tries to infuse humor (tries, anyway) to make his stuff more fun to read while getting across the message.

Write daily. Seek blogs you like and ask them to post your stuff or at least link to you. Most large bloggers will help small blogs get started and push traffic their way.

Decide if you’re going to have an opinion blog (like AWD) or post news stories written by others (like Drudge, Instapundit, Weasel Zippers, etc). Find your niche and decide who you want for your audience and focus on building traffic from readers who share those opinions.

Do not censor trolls unless they violate your rules. AWD has two rules…no N or F words. Oh, and no vulgarity. I prefer opinions and ideas (even leftist) if they are thought out and not name calling.

Get a good webmaster and learn SEO. Use Key Words to be more easily found in search engines. Use Facebook and Twitter.

Make your blog look professional for buying a ready-made theme. Most are under $100 and make your page look professional and serious.

Use photos and graphics in every post that relates to the topic. Learn to embed videos. Be creative and come up with things you would like to read. AWD has Libtard of the Week, Music That Doesn’t Suck, Dude of the Week as topics each week.

Off the top of my head, those are some of the things that has made AWD the 126th largest conservative page (according to Doug Powers) in four years. I try to make it fun, irreverent, funny, and sarcastic. My page critiques the world from the eyes of a middle class white guy. Hope that helps!

Remember, when you’re a big blog star, it was AWD who sent you on your way! However, you must still continue to worship me like a French cathedral and get dates for my friends. Oh, and the number one rule of successful blogging is….don’t suck. That would make you a libtard blog.

  4. You know too much enlightenment all at once can kill you – no doubt this thread eradicated more than one liberal.

    But I am still breathing…

    I guess what is good for me is not necessarily good for the weak minded.

    More I can not do – my work here is done…

    Thanks for playing along

  5. Better git in the right-wing extremist blogging while you can! I can’t imagine Lord Obama’s going to be tolerating dissent for too much longer…

    • We really need the chat that has a thumbs up option at every site so I can essentially say “Hey I totally agree with you” without having to hit the reply link & type in something like this. I love this site but if I could change one thing that would be it..A ‘disqus’ addition… (Same goes for atlasshrugs, pajamasmedia, theblaze, thegatewaypundit, frontpagemag, libertarianrepublican etc. etc.)
      Oh & BTW I totally agree with you. The King does not like dissent. 😉

      • I totally agree with your thumbs up/down option.There are some regulars on this site who will not agree because of their(how shall I put this)penchant for the written word.

        Man,I’ll catch h*ll for this.

            Yeah but you could make it better. A lot of it just depends on upon what you really got under the hood. Some excellent, some good, some fair and some just plain bad. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have talent. You do and have it in spades. It’s just what’s next. Get back to me.

        I actually tried to install a wordpress addin awhile back to do just this…and it crashed the site. Since then, I haven’t touched sh*t. But I do concur with the recommendation.

    • “O” may not like it but its going to be coming at him till he leaves the WH one way or another and after he’s out too. Scum like him are not easily forgotten especially when they have “soiled” the highest office in the land.

  7. A deep, heartfelt thanks for all the bloggers out there who are dedicated to getting the truth out about what is happening to our country and our culture. Your task of bringing to light the myriad destructive activities that our government is foisting upon us has enlightened and informed us all. However the time for just knowing about the issues is over. I find myself tiring of reading about the continuing destruction of our country and culture. I know, I know, I know already but what to do?

    I read the boycott blogs etc. but the lists are overwhelming. A concerted effort is needed by all right thinking Americans to bring about change. We cannot counter act the Left’s domination of the media which influences those who choose not to see so political change is almost impossible. We can however bring to bear our economic might if only we had a clear and easy plan to follow.

    I read about the hundreds of companies that support the left or right. Too many for me to personally integrate into my buying habits, so I just pick out a few that are really egregious and boycott or buycott as best as I can. For example: No to Costco, J.C. Penny, Home Depot, Ben and Jerrys, Yes to Chick Filet, Small non chain eateries, Lowes. No to Chevron, Yes to ethanol free gas ( it is available at many independent stations, but you have to look). When purchasing on line, I do not buy from sellers in blue states. When traveling, I gas up and eat in Red states before traversing blue states. I do not vacation in blue states. I will not support any Hollywood offering period. ( I will by used dvds ). Whenever possible, I buy previously owned items saving on the purchase price and not paying sales tax. I also work under the table whenever possible and always ask small merchants and service people if they offer a “discount” for cash.

    My list is small and not inclusive. As I gather more information I will adjust my buying and behavior habits accordingly. I feel there should be more leadership from conservatives, bloggers, politicians, celebs, on what we can really do to effect change, not just reading and writing about it, or watching the moochers vote themselves access to our wealth. This is not meant as a slam to the information providers, but a call for someone smarter than I, to organize an effective pattern of purchasing and behavior that will reward conservative and punish leftist organizations, and is easy to incorporate into the consuming activities of conservatives. Am I alone?

  8. And don’t EVER require membership in Facebook or require registration in order to make comments. John Kass of the Chicago Tribune said that since the Chicago Tribune made this mandatory, it now kept out the “racists.”

    Personally, I find the so-called “racists” to be enlightening in their commentary as it is far more honest than the “approved” comments and leashed statements…

  9. I needed some gun advice, but I think I found the answer!

    WILL A 9MM REALLY PROTECT YOU??

      A pellet gun, in the right hands, can protect you! Of course a 9 can! Its not the most powerful or even the prettiest but for personal protection, most are good handguns! Stay away from the Hi-Pints, cheap doesn’t mean better but then again, neither does expensive! Find a gun YOUR comfortable with and practice, practice, practice…keep your weapon clean and know how to clean it! Compare different ammo makers, loads and ball vs. hollow points, there are a lot of variables, but 1st is are YOU comfortable with the gun?
      I was shot many years ago with a 38., and later in the army by something much bigger, and it hurt like three kids of hell every time, so…a 9 is bigger but for me, a 44 is too big, so I settled for the Smith & Wesson Sigma 9 and another Smith 357. 4inch…(have 2 of each) both are incredible effective weapons but the skill and comfort of the shooter is priority!
      Shotguns make GREAT home defense weapons just watch the barrel lengths, too much barrel and you lose maneuverability (?), too little and it’ll set you on your butt! My personal preference is the Remington 870 riot gun, short enough to be practical anywhere a shotgun is needed, or the Mossburg 500, tactical!
      Good luck and be safe!

  10. Great advice AWD! All conservatives should make their voices heard all throughout the internet. Also, we are in desperate need of promoting a “very biased”,”right leaning” and “unbalanced search engine”. You know, one which is the total contrast of the “very fair & balanced”, Google search engine which “truly refrains from censoring conservative thought”!

  11. Dude, You da man. If I weren’t a happy married heterosexual I’d be putting some monkey moves on you. AWD for president.

  12. And be sure to liberally distribute terms like “libtard” and “democrap” in your blogs.

      It’s like this Biff. Few people are the equivalent of a Navy SEAL. The deal is this. Would you act like a man and would you go out like a man? It doesn’t make you superman it just makes you a man. You’re seriously lacking.

    • Biff, do terms like libtard make you sad? Good! Your feelings are the last thing I’m concerned about. Libs cornered the market on name calling since they’re short on logic and reason.

      • I was only adding to your advice to budding conservative bloggers.

      • WhiteFalcon1 says:

        Yep…if being called hurtful names will put you in a closet, stay away from blogging….it IS the lefties number 1 response to anything truthful you ever say, get past that and like AWD (as a guy I’m going to have to take a pass on the “big ole sexy’ stuff…sorry Bro!) says, speak your mind and toss all that PC crap out the window!

  13. And no conservative blog post is complete without at least one funny variation on Hussein’s name, like “Obungle” or “Oblameo”

    • Biff,I was pretty sure that I understood all of your comments,I think something got lost in translation for a few readers.

      I think you’re one of us (the good guys).I sure hope so or else I missed something and you pranked me.
