I think it’s only natural to want to get better at things that are important to us, but when I look back at my past four years of blogging, I have not really done much to try and make my blog better.
I hoped that by writing every day, my writing would get better; maybe it has, maybe it hasn’t.
I hoped that by sharing my blogs on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter that I would get lots of engaged followers, creating a community of engaged readers who would comment on my posts. That has certainly not happened.
That’s not to say I haven’t met some wonderful people online through my blog who have been kind enough to comment frequently on what I have written.
One of those people, David Kanigan, was even kind enough to offer a comprehensive set of recommendations about my blog when I asked him for advice.
But I’ve come to the point where I recognize that if I want to be a successful blogger, I need to commit to learning more about the art and science of blogging.
So when I came across Cristian Mihai’s 0 to 5K Program for improving my blog, it seemed like it was created with me in mind, and I made the decision to sign-up for the program. I’ve also ordered Cristian’s book, The Art of Blogging, which just came out this week.
This represents my first monetary investment directly related to improving my blog, and I am excited to get started. – Jim Borden
Some folks e-mailed me Sunday that they couldn’t take advantage of the flash sale because the had yet to cash their checks or similar situations.

Do you know what is the biggest secret to growing Your Blog to thousands of adoring readers who follow every word you publish?
Would you like to know?
Let me be blunt: there are very few people in the world who can tell you.
The vast majority of so-called A-listers are bright but otherwise normal people who were in the right place, writing about the right things, at the right time.
Many of them pay thousands and thousands of dollars on advertising.
Why would they pay such outrageous fees?
Because they stumbled into popularity. Because they realize they got lucky, and they are desperate to seize the opportunity before it slips away from them. Little do they know, that we always make our own luck.
I turned this blog into one of the most popular blogs on WordPress to date. I did it by studying from all the great bloggers before me, I did it by implementing the advice that most suited my needs, and discarding the rest.
Through trial and error, I figured things out.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: stop messing around with blogs in your spare time. Instead, look at this like a career and get serious about mastering your craft.
“WHAT?! No magic traffic or monetization tricks?”
