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.

Nobody Gives a Damn How Many Followers You’ve Got

Apparently it’s easy to get zillions of subscribers to your blog – Just follow a few simple steps, work hard, and write good stuff.

I know this, because there are a ton of pro-blogging sites which are eager to dispense the wisdom of their own success whilst making you feel inferior for having less than 20,000 subscribers.

Unfortunately for many of us, the promise of multiple thousands of subscribers is unrealistic no matter how hard we try – sometimes because we work in less popular niches, sometimes because we just don’t have the available time, and sometimes because we just don’t have that magic mix of talent and luck.

Ultimately this leads to frequent disappointment among bloggers.

But the bitter truth is that blogging is not a hobby or a profession for those without perseverance. Continue reading “Nobody Gives a Damn How Many Followers You’ve Got”

Blogging Mindset: Emotional Immunity

Jim Rohn used to say that if someone gives you a million dollars, you’d better become a millionaire real quick. That way you get to keep the money.

The thing is, most people would say yes if offered the opportunity to get all that they ever wanted. As if by magic.

The same right answer? Not yet.

Because this is one of the trickiest parts when it comes to developing a proper mindset when it comes to blogging. Continue reading “Blogging Mindset: Emotional Immunity”

Write Like Yourself

Let’s face it: most people can’t write their way out of a paper bag. Further, most bloggers are boring, most journalists are so heavily edited that any personality they’ve added to a story has long since been weaned out by the editorial process.

I want to let you in on a secret, though: it’s not really that people are boring, but that too many have been taught that you shouldn’t write the same way you talk. I blame our educational system, actually, with those 5th grade teachers who drilled us on adverbs, pronouns and the minutia of grammar, coupled with too many boring, tedious academic books that we all suffered through while in college.

Instead, I suggest to you that the best way to write clear, coherent, engaging and enjoyable content is to write the way you speak, to recognize your spoken voice and pour it out onto the virtual page of your computer screen and weblog. Continue reading “Write Like Yourself”

Are You a Gutless Blogger?

Let me know if this has ever happened to you: after sitting at your desk for what seems like hours, writing and rewriting, trying to communicate an idea, it downs on you that you’re feeling a bit… lost.

You write a paragraph, only to decide that’s not what you really want to say. So then you rewrite it to something you’re reasonably happy with, but then you can’t figure out what comes next.

You sit there thinking about it for a while, becoming increasingly frustrated with yourself. Finally, you just walk away, trying to find some perspective, but when you come back, instead of gaining some clarity, it seems like your ideas are even more muddled than before.

Every writer has been there. Some call it writer’s block. Others say they’ve lost their “creative direction.”

Personally, I think they’ve become gutless. Continue reading “Are You a Gutless Blogger?”

The Secret Traits of Successful Bloggers

We all know the “rules” of blogging. Produce consistently high-quality content, position yourself as an authority, cultivate relationships with your readers and other bloggers.

But some of the best and most popular blogs have traits that might surprise you. Here’s how being negative, angry, and stupid (in the right ways) can create breakthrough success on your blog.

Blogging Mindset: Persistence

“My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” Abraham Lincoln

Odds are that every new endeavor you are thinking of trying, all the shoulds, all the things you wish you could do, all of those are clouded in fear. You do not know what’s going to happen, whether or not you’re going to be successful, or how long will it take.

Maybe you’re trying to justify that fear by researching the best strategy. Maybe you’re telling yourself it’s not worth it, you’re not good enough, or that there’s too much competition. Continue reading “Blogging Mindset: Persistence”

What Is Creativity?

What is creativity? It’s one of those deceptively simple questions.

What does it mean to be creative?

Well… create is a verb. Creative thinking without execution is not creativity. Also, I personally feel that true creativity results in something useful to others. Something that either solves a problem, entertains, or helps us connect with other fellow human beings.

What do you think?

How Do You Stand Out in This Crowded Blogging World?

Ever sat down to write and felt like there’s nothing left to blog about? All the great ideas have been written about.

I mean, sure, you try to find a different angle, to write from your own point of view, to infuse your idea with that personal touch, but those things are supposed to enhance a great idea.

And you start to wonder: how are you supposed to stand out, writing about the same old stuff as everyone else?

You’d think it would be impossible, but it’s not… Continue reading “How Do You Stand Out in This Crowded Blogging World?”
