Independence Day

Happy Independence Day!

It was July 2nd, 1776, when the United States formally declared Independence from Great Britain. On July 4th, today, the Declaration of Independence was approved, and our nation was set on its current path. The United States had started on its path to greatness.

The 2nd Continental Congress had declared independence from Great Britain, and all of their lives were at risk. By declaring independence from Britain, these men had not only risked their own lives, but those of our new nation. If the United States could not prevail against Great Britain, countless American lives would have been lost, and America would have been left in ruin, losing decades of hard-earned Colonial labor. Art, Science, Architecture, and Spirit would have all been lost. The Colonies would be filled with sad, spiritless men, women, and children, all left to struggle with all Britain had to throw at them at the time. But we won, and our nation thrived.

But it all started with the delegates of the 2nd Continental Congress. They threw their whole lives into the idea of America. They would have lost everything–their families, their homes, and their lives–if America lost the Revolutionary War. But they believed in their idea of America so firmly, that we prevailed, changing the world forever. Their story is present in the modern day.

Thomas Edison was one of the greatest inventors in history. He invented the phonograph, a movie camera, and a practical electrical lamp. He also had over 1,000 patents. You may think, “Oh, this man must have been a genius growing up, a great student!” Well, you’re wrong, in a sense. Thomas Edison did horribly in school, and many of his teachers thought that he was too stupid to ever learn anything. They were wrong, and he proved his teachers wrong. He changed the world.

Oprah Winfrey is a television star and is worth $2.9 billion, but her days in the spotlight could have been a distant dream. She was fired from her first Baltimore acting job, facing sexism and harassment. She could have quit then, but she didn’t. She got past the harassment and avoided it, eventually turning into the woman she is today. She changed the world.

Henry Ford, creator of the Model-T, the first widely-purchased car, started out his career in a rough way. His first automotive companies failed miserably, and he gained a horrible reputation. When he went out to find Ford, no one would partner with him. They were all unwilling to work with him due to his past failures. But he stuck at it, and he eventually found someone that would partner with him. He changed the world.

Walt Disney, founder of Disney, is known for his great imagination and animation-creating skills. But this was not always the case. A young Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper editor who stated that he lacked imagination and had no good ideas. If Disney would have believed this man and not gone after his dreams, risking everything in the procees, our world would have been a much different place. He changed the world.

I hope this post makes you think a little. Take a risk. Work past a failure. Just because life hasn’t worked for you in the past, or one or two risks have turned out bad, doesn’t mean you have to quit. Take inspiration from the stories above, and take a risk or two.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
