Blogging isn’t what it used to be. It’s not exactly dead, it’s not dying, it’s just… different.
When I started blogging seven years ago, all you had to do was create a blog, share some decent content, be consistent, and you’d attract readers and comments.
And you’d be making some money too. Maybe even afford to become a full-time blogger if you managed to build a community of folks who were passionate about your content.
But now… things are different. Now, there are hundreds of thousands of blogs out there for every topic imaginable.
Stuff got complicated. We didn’t even have half of these words back when I first started blogging: webinars, landing pages, sales funnels, SEO, copywriting…
Heck, we didn’t even care much about headlines, intros, and formatting our damn blog posts properly. Just read this old post of mine on “blogging:” 3,647 likes, 508 comments, and all that as a reward for delivering some mediocre advice…
Nowadays, even with all this expert advice, even with all the e-courses and mentorships and books and tutorials, people are having a hard time.
Want to know why?
Because there are some things that no one ever tells you about blogging.
But I am going to.
So, if you want to make it in this brave new world, read on.
