20 Mindset Tips to Help You Become a Better Blogger2 min read

If you want to become a better blogger, the first thing you need to know is that you’ll have to work hard. Sorry. There’s no way around it, no shortcut, no tip or trick.

You have to be willing to show up, and you have to be motivated enough to want to improve.

In this post, I am going to share with you twenty mindset tips to help you become a better blogger.


Because I believe that it all starts and ends with your inner game.

How’s your mindset?

Not great? Not sure? Not wanting to think about it?

Well, let’s read on and see what it takes to become a successful blogger.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.

Are you willing to do what it takes?

Are you willing to punch those damn keys even when you don’t feel like it?

This is the most important step in becoming a better blogger.

Doing the work. Showing up. If you don’t show up, nothing ever happens.

Then, you should keep in mind that:

  1. Blogging is simple, but not easy.
  2. Success is never owned. You have to pay rent. Every day.
  3. You need to pay your dues first, before you get the reward.
  4. Practice makes perfect.
  5. Focus on habits, not goals.
  6. You can’t be successful without discipline. Keep showing up and persevering.
  7. There will always be resistance; punch those damn keys, anyway.
  8. Know your why. A strong enough why can overcome any how.
  9. Stop worrying about being a good blogger; just punch the damn keys.
  10. Forget about being popular; write what sets your soul on fire.
  11. Get over your notion that perfection can be attained.
  12. Write your truth even if your hands shake against the keyboard.
  13. When everyone else is giving up, that’s when you have to put more time and effort.
  14. Provide value to your readers.
  15. Patience is a virtue.
  16. Little by little, a little becomes a lot.
  17. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, to break some rules.
  18. Don’t just think outside the box. Think like there’s no box.
  19. You write blog posts one word at a time. That’s all it takes.
  20. Never, ever, ever give up.

Mindset is crucial.

If you don’t get your mind right, you will never have the inner fortitude to develop the skill you are required to become successful.

  1. Amazing tips, brother!

    It surely taking time and a lot of efforts to keep my blog going, people shouldn’t take this lightly. 😀

  2. I especially like tip #18, Cristian. “Don’t just think outside the box. Think like there’s no box.” I can do that! But folks think I’m kinda weird when I do that. Tip#21: Don’t let fear of looking or sounding weird keep you from expressing yourself genuinely.

  3. I resonate with #10: Forget about being popular; write what sets your soul on fire.

    Humor is what sets my soul on fire. I have a wellspring of humor IN me. I simply cannot help myself for very long. Repeatedly, I will set out to write a serious post and before I know it, I find myself once again derailed and off the side of the road in the humor ditch.

    I write b/c I HAVE to. I must get it out. It’s painful if I don’t. Brene Brown helped everything congeal for me when I saw this interview she did on the vulnerability of being creative and fearing the inevitable critics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAk4cwjvJ0A Daring Greatly to Unlock Your Creativity with Brené Brown | Chase Jarvis LIVE

    She also has a great quote on this: “Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgment, sorrow, shame.”

    While I’d certainly like for others to enjoy my work, I realize that not everyone likes to laugh … and worse … many people who have been where I found myself are uncomfortable when I lampoon my past emotional trauma. That’s why I picked the URL: cricket-chronicles.com. I write for me and the crickets of course. They’re loyal followers. They’re consistent. They show up every night and they always interact—especially the males. LOL

    You state it so beautifully and teach in your courses, it’s about keeping on for the sake of keeping on. Thank you for the great post and for the encouragement!
