How to Write a Great Blog Post: A Beginner’s Guide

There are more blogs in existence than ever, yet more and more people are seduced by the idea of sharing their thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world.

As a matter of fact, it does seem as if there’s a war out there. Everyone is fighting for attention, there are so many things to learn and master. So many social networks, marketing techniques. There’s even an awful lot of content on blogging itself, which makes it even more frustrating.

How do you write a great blog post?

I wouldn’t be asking if I didn’t know the answer. Or would I …

How to Be a Boss at Blogging When You Have 0 Followers

Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a photographer. Mostly with other people’s cameras. And the results are oftentimes… not bad.

I do not research the subject, I do not take classes, I do not read about photography, I do not actively aim to become better.

Yet, somehow, I am becoming better with each photograph I take.

And I wondered why.

Wouldn’t you? Continue reading “How to Be a Boss at Blogging When You Have 0 Followers”

Free E-book: The Ultimate Blogging Checklist

Hi guys,

Jordan here. I have a small favor to ask of you.

Let’s all be honest for a sec here, okay?

Once upon a time, you looked at blogging and thought, “Oh, I can do that. Writing a few posts a week? Piece of cake.” From the outside, it looks so simple, so easy, so fun, and so you rushed off to start a blog of your own.

But then you realized: this stuff is complicated. Blogging isn’t so much about writing blog posts as it is about juggling dozens of little odds and ends, all of them important, all of them demanding your attention, and all of them requiring you to learn something.

And it’s easy to drop the ball, so to speak, and not because you want to neglect anything, but because it’s too much to keep track of.

What you really need is a checklist of sorts – an itemized breakdown of everything you need to do to transform your blog and dazzle your readers.

That way, you can stop trying to handle everything all at once and just go through it one step at a time.

So, that’s what I created for you: a checklist of 52 things you need to do, along with some links to help you learn how to do them well.

This is just a sort of preview of the kind of content that you’ll be receiving if you enroll in our Blogging Bootcamp.

You can download the e-book here.

Also, only two spots available in this bootcamp, so if you’re interested, do check it out here.

What To Do When You Run Out of Words

Even though you do not want to think about it, there will come a time when you simply run out of inspiration for your blog.

You’ve been writing blog posts about the same topics for way too long.

You’re exhausted.

You just don’t know what to write anymore.

Not that you’re one to give up easily. You try to unblock your creativity. You start going back over old blog posts, rewriting them, trying to find new angles and new ways of talking about the same old thing.

You’ve talked about everything you know how to talk about four times over, from every conceivable angle. You’ve reworked all the posts you can. You are done. Finished. Finito. Really freakin’ tired.

Time to quit blogging and become a Starbucks barista, right?

Wrong. Continue reading “What To Do When You Run Out of Words”

The Art of Blogging: On Sale!

It’s frustrating, isn’t it? Sometimes even downright discouraging.

You have so many ideas you want to share with the world. So many things you want to say. So much you want to try.

But your job is demanding. You’re constantly juggling family schedules and obligations. You’re always heading off annoying interruptions.

You wonder if you’ll ever be able to make blogging a permanent part of your life.

You want to get your work out there, but at the same time you’re not an idealist.

You love writing, but it’s not just about self-expression for you.

You don’t need to be a unique snowflake who makes every word trumpet from the heavens so that unicorns prance down on Earth.

You just want to create something you can be proud of.

To finish something you start.

To see some results for a change.

You want to live life on your own terms and change the lives of others — and you know you could do it… if only you knew how.

There’s got to be an art to it, right? There’s got to be some secrets that few are willing to share with the world, some sort of trick that allows you to turn off your phone, sit down at your desk, and produce thousands upon thousands of words. Continue reading “The Art of Blogging: On Sale!”

Why Being Bold is Essential to Having Success as a Blogger

There are thousands and thousands of other blogs that talk about the same thing your blog does.

Read that sentence again and let it sink in for a moment. With so many blogs talking about the same topics, how will you differentiate yours from the rest? How can you come up with new and interesting angles on the same topics for both your post and your overall blog theme?

If you don’t mind being just another blog among millions, just keep talking about the same thing. But if you want to be considered a successful blogger, you have to find a way to get noticed. You have to stick out from the crowd.

How do you get noticed? You gotta be bold.

There’s no other way. Continue reading “Why Being Bold is Essential to Having Success as a Blogger”

TRUST: And How to Lose It

“But the phenomenon of reputation is a delicate thing. A person rises on a word and falls on a syllable.” – Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis

This online world is a bit strange. It allows us these great tools to reach people half a world away, in truly ingenious ways, and yet trust is still essential to how others perceive (or act upon) our message.

And when your readers lose their trust in you they stop engaging with your content, and the odd thing is that this might not be about what you write, but rather the stuff you don’t write.

Here are seven ways you might be losing their trust. Continue reading “TRUST: And How to Lose It”

The 0 to 5K Program

THE 0 to 5K PROGRAM IS FOR YOU IF…

  • You’re struggling to gain readers
  • You seldom receive any comments on your posts…
  • You want to create a community around your blog…
  • You want to learn how to tell a compelling story
  • You want to blog like a boss
  • You want a big smile on your face every time you check your WordPress Stats

Well, this is the program for you then.

Six months of receiving feedback and pointers from me, on anything from the visual layout to the content. I’ll be offering you tips and tricks on:

  1. headlines
  2. introductions
  3. how to end your posts with a bang
  4. how to be a master storyteller
  5. how to use social media to your advantage
  6. how to network with fellow bloggers

And more importantly than all, HOW TO FEEL LIKE A PROPER BLOGSTAR.

If you want to take your blog into the blogging stratosphere, this is the right program for you.


Is this YOU?

Writing has always been one of your passions. You decided to start a blog, to share your thoughts and ideas with the world. You poured your heart and soul into every post, did the very best you could… only to be COMPLETELY IGNORED.

No comments, no shares, no feedback whatsoever. The bottom of the ocean has seen more life.

Maybe no one was around, you think. You write post after post, decide that perseverance and patience will bring you the readers you deserve.

But no. Months go by, you gain a couple followers, maybe receive a comment or two.

What to do? How to go about it?

No one’s reading your blog…
EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE DOING YOUR BEST.

Meanwhile, other bloggers seem to be having the time of their lives, putting out awesome content, connecting with amazing people from all over the world, building communities around their ideas.

It’s really not fair, because you’ve actually put in WORK into this blogging thing. You’ve seen others be successful, so you know it’s possible… but for some reason, you can’t even get a couple COMMENTS.

At this point, even a “hater” would be something you’d appreciate, because at least then they’d be acknowledging your online existence. Right now, and for all intents and purposes, you’re invisible.

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU I CAN TAKE YOU FROM ZERO TO FIVE THOUSAND FOLLOWERS IN SIX MONTHS …

This is the best program for growing your traffic/readership I have ever designed.
This is the program to put an END to the constant lack of feedback.

Imagine having five thousand people read your blog.

Can you imagine what your life would be like if you could get five thousand people read your blog? Regardless of how “beginner” or ” advanced” you are? How fulfilled you would be? How relaxed you would be? How happy would you be?

I have been blogging for six years now, making this blog into one of the most popular blogs on WordPress. I managed to take irevuo from a few hundred subscribers to over 5,000 in less than six months.

I have created this program packed with traffic building tips and tricks:

  • The best ways to create engaging content that makes it impossible for readers not to comment on.
  • The best ways to network with fellow bloggers and create connections that will prove to be helpful along the way.
  • The very, very best ways to use social media to your advantage, to boost the reach of your posts.

This program is literally the closest thing to “magically boost your traffic” that you are going to find, EVER!


At this price, and at what I am offering, this is a bargain.

My blogging friends said I was crazy to offer this for such a low price. But, yes, I am going to help you grow your blog to 5K WordPress Followers in 6 months.

But, Cristian, what happens if you don’t?

A Money-Back Guarantee, that’s what happens. You get your money back at any point during this six month program, or within 30 days of it ending.

So, what are you waiting for?

Let’s Work Together

Hi,

I’m not going to waste your time with marketing stuff. I’m not going to tell you that this or that product is going to change your life, because it’s not, and because if you don’t purchase one of my products, you’ll still be able to live your life and keep blogging.

That’s the truth.

But it does help buying one of my programs.

There’s a big difference when you make a commitment and there’s someone who makes sure that you do the work.

Wait, what?

Yeah, you’ll still have to work. You’ll still have to blog. To do the actual work of writing words, replying to comments, and learning as you go along.

But you won’t be doing this alone. You’ll have someone who’s done this already offer you a strategy and ideas — stuff that would take years to learn by yourself.

Can you live without all this?

Yeah.

But if you want to be successful as a blogger, if you like my style and would like to work together, if you are serious about blogging, then do click here to read more about our programs.

Want More Traffic? Here’s How.

Sometimes I ask myself if there’s more to this blogging thing than being addicted to traffic.

You start a blog, or a YouTube channel, create a podcast, whatever your passion may be. You put some content out there, and a few people stop by and compliment your work.

That’s when the madness starts.

You start to go online for traffic strategies, going to webinars instead of movies, and even studying blogs the Art of Blogging. Hehehe.

But you know what?

I feel you. And because I went through this myself, I am going to share a few strategies with you. Continue reading “Want More Traffic? Here’s How.”

[Blogging Mindset] The Secret

“The secret is in the line.”Charles Bukowski

When you first start blogging, it’s all too easy to daydream yourself into chronic procrastination. After all, you’re not where you want to be, so why not spend a few hours each day thinking up of all the ways in which becoming a blogging superstar is going to enhance your life.

At the same time, there are so many technical aspects, from themes to plugins to formatting, to images, to sharing videos, to… it’s easy to spend most of the time taking care of such stuff.

Then there’s the sheer quantity of available resources. Just think of how much time it would take you to read all the articles on this blog alone. Then the comments, to get a feel for what folks want or have tried.

It’s all too easy to forget what really matter when it comes to blogging.

What is that, you ask? Continue reading “[Blogging Mindset] The Secret”
