    Hello James and Arlene...

    This was a really helpful Buzz! I'm working on thinking like a publisher so that good content will flow steadily into my site.

    In one part of your message, you spoke about Mondays will be for Lifestyle types of articles. Can you explain a little about that term Lifestyle?

    I would like to have interesting, informative, and entertaining articles created for my visitors but I would also like these articles to somehow engage a visitor to take another step of some kind. Perhaps sign up for my newsletter or to read a review that I may have posted.

    Are we not ultimately running a business? To stay in business, even to keep up with regular expenses, requires some sales to be made.

    What is an idea or two that you may offer?

    To Your Continued Success...

      Hi John, yes thinking like a publisher is important. You are also right in your thinking that it's important to have a goal in mind for the visitor within each page you are adding. It could be any one of a number of things:

      1.) Clicking through to your merchant to make the purchase
      2.) Signing up for your newsletter
      3.) Clicking on a Google AdSense ad
      4.) Etc.

      As for a lifestyle article in could be about community living, family, travel. etc, It truly is what it says it is an article about "lifestyle".

      In your case with the eCourseClassroom, I see lots of opportunities for lifestyle articles. I would think most people who are looking to go back to school are doing so because they are looking to improve their lifestyle.

      A lifestyle article is typically a great place to display Google AdSense ads because they are not generally promoting a product. Here's a few headlines to illustrate:

      - Gardening – Yep it is Exercise
      - Family Time – Create a Family Game Room
      - Adding Activity Into Your Life – The Easy Way

      And your question "Are we not ultimately running a business?" is a good one. This is why we should always be thinking about ways to monetize the page, which I can see you are doing.

      Keep up the good work.

      James
