Peter's Consultation for promoting website selling beauty products using private blog

I had a request from someone to for help to promote her website which sells beauty products and offered good rewards if I do well. So what did I do? I set up a private blog Peter's Consultation where I will be posting secret tips and tricks gained from experience through long hours and hard work. Can't afford to make those secret tips and tricks public you know, for after all, someone has offered to pay for it, and it will not be fair if what I give her is made public available to everyone for free. Plus I still have one son to put through college on my pension.

It is easy to create a private blog. After creating a Blogger account and a blog, go to the LAYOUT, post editor or other pages and click on the SETTINGS tab, then the PERMISSIONS sub-tab. You will get to a page that look like the screenshot below. Change the "Permission" setting by ticking the "Only people I choose" radio button (highlighted by red arrow pointing at it), enter an email which can be your own, click "Invite" and this will make the blog private. Now only those you invite can get to see what is inside the private blog.

Wonder if website owner or owners may be interested in me help promote their website which sells beauty products like Headbands and Fashion Jewelry plus other dainty stuff like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. It will be like killing 2 birds or more with one stone. After all, I will be putting in some hard work. Why not make it do double or triple duties, or more?

I am pretty sure I can help them. If I contact them and make an offer, wonder if they will bite. No harm trying I suppose. The worst I would get would be a rejection, but that would not kill me.

  1. So how did it go?

  2. Hi Matt,

    What I have done is to contact the website and told them I used their photo in this post and took that as an indirect offer but don't they didn't mention anything about wanting help to promote their website. Maybe I should be more bold and be more direct. Do you think I should?

  3. Be more direct, tell them exactly what you want

  4. Hi Matt,

    A thousand apologies, but could not understand your second comment. You ask in the first, "so how did it go?" and I though I was answering your question. I don't see in my message about anything about wanting anything so don't know how to respond to your second question.

  5. Hi,

    wonder if I'm in right place.

    Problem: trying to find a code wich works in private blog, gadget/widget for recent comments. My blog is only for the authors.

  6. There is a Recent comments gadget in the Featured gadgets included in the Blogger Layout

  7. Hi! Random I know but I was wondering if you could answer a question for me?! I prefer to have my blog set to private but am really frustrated that my updated posts are not showing up on my friends blog lists. Is there a way to fix this feature??
    Thsnks :)
