In the Beginning there was Persuasive Article Marketing

Well, it was about time! I started this blog very slowly in October of 2010. Back then I was writing about one post a month.  Because of being so busy with all my other internet marketing work, and other things, there was just no way I could have posted more often.

I first started with one of those pretty lame looking free WordPress themes for only about a month or two. Then, an online buddy of mine installed a paid theme that already looked much better, while not great.  But it was fine back then.

Over time, however, I decide to concentrate way more on the blogging side of my online business and less on other things, such as article marketing and affiliate marketing.  Naturally, this was bound to bring up some changes.

Changing Looks

This is when I was starting to realize that I wanted a blog that looked more professional.  So, I looked around and found out that a Thesis theme was what I wanted to go with.  I decided to purchase the Thesis theme called BlogSkin which made a huge difference in the look of my blog. I explained everything about this here.

So, things started to look better. I started to post more regularly and more frequently as I always advise others to do. I decided to get rid of all the blogs that I wasn’t interested in anymore and kept only three including this one. You can visit the other two over here.

Everything started looking much better for this blog, still called Persuasive Article Marketing then, but something was still missing.  A professional looking header!

A New Header

Wow, did I need one! I started shopping around and asking people with good looking headers where they had gotten theirs. When I interviewed Barry Wells, few weeks ago, I asked him where he got his, because I thought it looked very professional.

He sent me the link and I really liked what that guy was doing for the price. Plus, Barry told me how happy he was of the service.  So, I decide to go for it.

I told, Steve, the creator of my header that I would definitely recommend his service. I even got a free footer with my header and a tremendously fast and good service.  So, if you need a header or any online product design, check Steve out.  He is doing a great job!

A New Name

Just before I installed my new header, I changed my domain name from PersuasiveArticl to This was a well over due thing to do.  I remember six years ago when I purchased my first domain, Go Daddy was trying to sell me the domain, and back then I thought, why in the world would I need to purchase my name as a domain name?

Well, like I said, that was six years ago, and I had no idea what I was going to go with my online business back then.

Thankfully, six years later, the domain name was still available for the taking and I did.

So, in just about a month my blog had a new theme, a new header and a new name… This is what it used to look not that long ago…

Blog Traffic Improvements

Since I started doing what  I was supposed to be doing with my blog, I also started getting more visitors and more comments. I really started to interact with other bloggers like I had never done before.  I also started participating in blog contests, asking for interviews, did guest postings, blog commenting, and guest invitations.

This is another big thing that is going to happen on this blog.  Big names are going to start appearing as guest writers, once in a while. This is very exciting to me.  As a matter of fact, my first big guest is coming very soon. But I won’t say more about this for now.

So, there you have it! It’s my hope that this blog will attract more and more readers who will enjoy its content and benefit from it.  As a am also starting to target the big blogs out there as guest author, I am sure that the popularity of this baby will only grow.  However, I could never do it without your help and support, so thanks to each one of you for reading this and, please, don’t leave without saying hello!  Your comments are always appreciated.

  1. Oh Sylviane, I LOVE the header. What an awesome job he did, it’s definitely you.

    Your blog looks nice girl, really nice and I love the changes you’ve made here. So glad I’m the first one to comment on the new look. You made a very smart decision going with the new theme and getting a custom header created. It made all the difference in the world.

    I just love the new look Sylviane and congratulations. I’m excited for what is in store for you this year.

    1. Thank you Adrienne for giving me your feedbacks.

      I love it too. When the creator of the header sent me the first draft for review, I told him, I can’t even see a single thing that would need to be changed!

      Then, Hasham the guy who helped me with my Thesis theme said he loved my hearder without even me asking, so it kind of confirmed to me that I had made the right choice.

      The only direction I gave to Steve, the guy who did the header, is that I wanted a dark red to burgundy color for the background, I wanted sylviane in white letters, I gave him my picture and the sub heading and tha’t all. It’s like he read my mind.

      I’m glad you like it Adrienne.

      Have a great day 🙂

  2. Hey!

    I absolutely love the new look. It looks clean and all sorted out and yes, the header is amazing! I am so glad all your hard work paid off! 🙂

    Good luck with all your efforts! Looking forward to your guest post’s and the guest post’s here! Keep us informed! 🙂

    1. Hello Hajra,

      Thanks so much for your kind words. If you have any idea about a blog post that would preferably be about “writing” or internet marketing, you can always let me know. I love to welcome guest writers on my blog. All I am looking to is “quality” and I think a lot of people can write quality articles 🙂

  3. Sylviane, aloha. CONGRATULATIONS on your new header. It’s looks terrific because Steve conveyed your theme and your professionalism with flair.

    Looking at your old blog and your new one isn’t even as close as night and day. The look is so fresh and new it is like you cleaned house to make it sparkling and ready for company.

    Look forward to watching your blog evolve and, of course, to getting to know you better. Until next time, aloha. Janet

  4. Hi Janet,

    Thank you for coming Janet. Nice to hear that you like my new header.

    I am so glad I met you. I had seen your picture around for a while at Adrienne’s and I think other places, and you know you’d like to click on everyone’s link but it’s also time consuming 🙂

    So, anyway, I finally did, not that long ago, as you know, and I really liked your blog which is a theme right up my alley. I am glad we met 🙂 You seem to be a very nice person and really want to know you more as well.

    I met so many nice bloggers lately, I don’t know what I had been doing all this time in my bubble 🙂

  5. Hey Sylviane,
    Congratulations for your new header, it is simply superb. It looks beautiful and attractive :D. And yes, good to see your new domain name its really a good one and I am very happy for this as you got your own name domain. I am eagerly waiting to see guest posts by other writers on this blog :).

    1. Hi Manish,

      Thank you for your nice words. I am eagerly waiting for my guest bloggers as well. I want to make this blog as valuable as possible and I am sure that guest posts will add some value to it.

      Thanks for passing by and have a great day!

  6. Hi Ilka,

    Well, not so smart of me. I’ve been blogging for years but more as an affiliate than a blogger, if you know what I mean. And I just switched to my name domain name only a couple of weeks ago, before it was going to be too late to do it.

    I saw that you have a huge crowd of followers on your blog, do you think that would too much of a hassle to switch your blog to your name domain? If you told all your follower about the change I am sure they’ll follow you  Than, of course it would take a little while for Google to recognize the switch as well.

    Thank for coming by and, please come back 😉

  7. I love the new name and the new look, Sylviane! I also love your new picture – I think you ought to update Gravatar with it, too. You are coming into your own, and that’s clear from the new domain and focus on you – I realize the other domain’s good for SEO and all, but I would be MUCH more inclined to stop by and spend some time here – because now it feels like there’s a real and credible person behind it. (There always was – but had I not known you from the contest, I probably wouldn’t have stuck around the old site for long or read deeply enough to discover the writer behind it.) Congratulations!

    1. Hi Holly,

      Thanks for passing by. I am glad you like the new look. Yes, I’ve been thinking about updating the avatar. Maybe will do. Thanks for the feedbacks.

  8. Over all site is looking nice but the header of your site is just amazing . It looks so sweet and soothing to eyes. Love it.
