How to Write a Blog Post in One Hour Which Is Guaranteed to be Published, Get Noticed and Even Go Viral!
If you are really perturbed by the subject matter, you are likely to persist and read more either immediately or over a period of a few days to follow up on the event to satisfy your own information crunch and curiosity. You may even save the article or pictures or video for a future look if you don’t have time. Actually you are unknowingly preparing the matter for your blog post.
All you have to do is to do all that on the document you saved , under the headline you just typed in. The easiest thing to do is just copy and paste the URLs from the address bar under your headline. For a good measure, just copy any vital quotes, opinions or tweets which you agree with or which upsets you, as you continue to read.
Of course you can add on bits and pieces you feel like blurting out among all those you are adding. Very soon, you will see you have already a great part of it your post.
Now, if you are someone who likes to dig deeper, you are likely to do some search as you go along. Well those might exactly be the things anyone who reads your articles may be searching for. So you have your keywords for your SEO. Just keep adding all those links to the bottom of your post.
So you see, you now have not only the skeleton but also some body for a emotionally driven, compelling stuff you want to share with your readers. The best thing to do now is put it away and forget it till you are ready to spend that one hour adding what you have to say, annotating and referencing with the links and embellishing with the quotes and tweets you have collected.
Now that you have your post in front of you, you can apply all those check lists the experts have recommended, to refine and fine tune your article. Almost certainly you will find that you post already covers most of them and "improving" further might even destroy the natural flow and readability of your post.
If you are looking to get your post published elsewhere, chances are your post will be accepted by any sensible editor, as it will have substance supported by relevant references and interesting current information everyone is talking about.
If you are aiming to get your post go viral, a check with the following checklist and guidelines of Carson Ward from SEOMOZ detailed in his brilliant article can help.
A viral checklist
Two months from now it’s going to be easy to sit down and create content in the same habits we always have. Not all content needs to be viral, but when that’s the goal, make sure that you accomplish all of the following.
• Did you sufficiently cover the topic? Is it long enough? (24)
• Does the content inspire a high-energy emotion like awe (16), anger(18), or anxiety (18)?
• Did your tone convey emotion? (12)
• Is it practically useful? (16)
• Is it interesting? (14)
• Is it surprising? (8)
• Does the author have fame/credibility? (8)
• If it’s supposed to be funny, is it actually funny? Are you sure your friends aren’t just being nice? (∞)
You can’t always have all of these factors, so I’ve added a maximum score in parenthesis to help prioritize those factors that research has shown to be most important to sharing. If you rate your content at or near 100, it’s likely that it has a far greater chance of going viral.

Acne is a horrible condition that can seriously undermine a person’s self-confidence. It can affect anyone at any age but seems to be more aggressive in the teenage years, which is probably the most important time for self-confidence development.
The main point to this article is to briefly discuss the causes and cures for this condition which shows up on the body as red patches which can darken and split causing scaring in extreme cases. These can cover small areas of the back, neck and face and often spread to cover bigger areas.
Poor diet, stress and hormone in-balance have all been attributed to acne causes. Sometimes the body has a reaction to a rise in testosterone and this is often blamed on certain outbreaks of acne. Of course the hormone in-balance can be linked to both poor diet and stress and so it becomes a vicious circle.
The first thing to do is to visit your Doctor, because they can tell exactly how bad the acne is and if there is any infections that need to be treated separately. A common problem with this condition is that the pustules break open and foreign bodies enter causing even more problems.
Get rid of stress. Stress is a problem in many areas of our lives and it really does not help acne at all. Find places to relax and clear the mind. Take up a hobby and learn to escape from the main areas that cause stress.
There are many different creams readily available on the market. When trying a new one it pays to test a small patch first in case the body reacts in an unpleasant way. Most of these creams are designed to sooth rather than cure but this is important because the sufferer is less like to scratch or rub and this will lessen the chances of infection.
Another method that has seen some success, or at least helped in some way has been the use of facial steam bathes. This opens up the pores and at least helps with preventing infection.
So to quickly recap
Try to eliminate stress if you suffer from this nasty condition and do make sure you take a look at your diet. Eat plenty of whole foods and fibre. Also try to get regular exercise because that also helps with stress.
Do at all costs avoid scratching the skin because this is the main cause of scaring.
I do hope this information helps in some way and please check the resource box for even more help on the subject.

As a lover of animals, I am shocked and disgusted at this news:
Five pit bull terrier puppies have been born in the world’s first cloning of a pet dog for a paying customer.
They are the genetic doubles of Booger, a pit bull whose death from cancer two years ago left his owner Bernann McKinney so bereft that she sold her house to raise the £25,000 [$48,000] needed to – in her eyes – bring him back to life.
A little backstory…this woman adopted from an agency a pit bull that she named Booger. Some years later, she was attacked by a mastiff and Booger intervened in the attack, helping fight off the dog and probably saving her life. As a result of the attack, Bernann was left in a wheelchair after reconstructive surgery, so Booger learned how to become a service dog. He would do things like open doors, take laundry out of the dryer, and getting things out of the fridge. So obviously it seems that the relationship between the two was a loving one, as most relationships between pets and their owners are, and especially between a person and their service animal.
Tragically, Booger developed cancer, and distraught at the thought of losing her friend forever, Bernann had some skin cells taken from his ear and frozen. Failing to produce a duplicate of Booger in the US, she turned to a lab in South Korea, and they were able to produce five identical-looking Booger clones:
The 57-year-old Californian scriptwriter has named the puppies Booger McKinney, Booger Lee, Booger Ra, Booger Hong and Booger Park, after herself and the South Korean scientists behind their birth.
RNL Bio, the Seoul cloning company, said the process was so straightforward it could clone 300 dogs a year for bereaved pet owners around the world. [...]
The technology, the same as that used to create Dolly the Sheep, brings with it high risk of miscarriage and still birth – and for those creatures that do survive, ill health and premature death.
Bernann, for her part, defends her decision to have the cloning done:
‘Booger was my partner and my friend. They are perfectly the same as their daddy. I am in heaven here. I am a happy person.’
‘I had to make sacrifices and I dream of the day, some day, when everyone can afford to clone their pet because losing a pet is a terrible, terrible loss to anyone.’ [...]
‘I wanted my friend back,’ she said. ‘Booger taught me I could do anything I could do before the accident. I just had to figure out a different way to do it.’ [...]

On May 1, the Better Sleep Council (BSC) advised the sleep-deprived to turn off the technology switch in order to improve their quality of rest. A new survey showed that nearly half of Americans don’t get enough sleep and gadgets such as cellphones and tablets are partly responsible for the mass insomnia.
“Simple things like turning off cell phones, not eating in bed and sleeping on a comfortable mattress rank highest on the list of missed opportunities,” said Karin Mahoney, director of communications. “Part of the problem is that people think they can push through their lack of sleep without negative effects. Men, in particular, are more likely to believe they can train themselves to function normally on less sleep, but studies show that just isn’t true.”
Psychology professor Andrew Campbell at the University of Sydney advises individuals to reduce their interaction with electronic devices in a May 3 Telegraph article. “Technology can make you socially isolated because you don’t meet face to face …. But nothing is better than seeing a real smile, instead of a text smile.” A recent Pure Profile survey found that young Australians aged 35 and under are spending up to 16 hours a day interacting with technological devices such as smartphones and tablets.
The Better Sleep Council recommends that people should reduce electronics use in the bedroom, specifically in the bed. Constantly checking one’s cellphone while in bed leads to restlessness. Unfortunately, nearly 80 percent of Americans don’t turn off their cellphones when going to bed. Thus, late-night texts and messages can be a source of stress and prevents the relaxation necessary prior to one dozing off to sleep.
Additionally, intense back lighting from high-tech gadgets stimulates chemicals in the brain that adversely affects one’s quality of rest. According to BSC, technology users should power off one hour before bed and sticking to hard copies to read in bed with soft lighting.
The sleep council offers this advice: “Buy a $5 alarm clock and exercise the ‘power down’ feature as part of your bedtime routine. If that’s not enough, consider keeping your phone in a separate room. At a minimum, keep it out of reach.” Silent digital clocks serve as an alternative for road warriors who frequently stay at hotels.
If you love toys and consider yourself a “kid at heart,” you might want to indulge your playful side by seeking employment at one of the top toy companies. Imagine working with toys every day and getting paid for it.
“Playing around” will take on a new meaning when you play at work, working for a toy company. Imagine designing the next top toy or spending your day testing toys. That sounds like fun to me!
There are several types of jobs you can apply for and there are added perks for working for these companies. Most offer big discounts on their products while others provide social activities for their employees. Take a look at the following companies, one of them might be the company you’ve been looking for.
