Who Am I?4 min read

Look how bad-ass I looked in this picture of a print of a picture

Yesterday I received an e-mail from a fellow blogger. They said they were interested in enrolling in one of my courses, but they wanted to know who I was.

Fair enough, right?

Most people who sell e-books or courses will have a lengthy list of accomplishments that is meant to show others that they’re qualified to teach you want they want to teach you.

I’ve always found that to be mildly narcissistic.

So… who am I exactly?

Well, my name is Cristian Mihai, and I have been blogging consistently since April 24, 2012.

I started with this blog:

In October 2012 I had built and grown the blog to over 20, 000 readers.

In October 2013 I had over 54, 000 readers, and I was interviewed by The Daily Post. You can find the interview here.

In the meantime I somehow managed to gain over 140, 000 readers, while being the only blogger ever to have three different blog posts featured on Discover/Freshly Pressed.

Posts such as this one right here.

Or this one here.

My content is also being curated and featured heavily on Medium, where I am a top writer.

I’ve also used to write blog posts for Wattpad’s blog.

I also founded the following blog:

An online platform dedicated to all things art that has over 13, 000 readers.

Oh, and since 2012 I’ve been working on a one-on-one basis with over a hundred different bloggers.

I also grew The Art of Blogging to almost 40, 000 readers in two years.

I have made blogging my passion, my full-time job (I have earned in excess of $35, 000 over the last three months alone), and my area of expertise.

So, yeah, this is pretty much who I am.

And if you want to learn from me, from all the experience I’ve accumulated during my eight year blogging journey, join me and hundreds of other bloggers on Learn@TheArtofBlogging, where you will find courses such as:

Everything you need to know to start making money from your blog.

And plenty more e-courses, tutorials, and e-books.

Became Internet famous by the age of 23. Never recovered. I write short author bios all over the web. I’m an acquired taste. Don’t like me? Acquire some taste.

  1. Very impressive resumé. Congrats on your accomplishments.

    Just a quick question. What do you feel is a good number of posts per week for just starting out?

    1. Here’s a simple recipe:

      You post as often as it takes to develop a proper conversation on your most recent post.

      What I mean by that: you post a blog post today, and then you network and comment on other blogs until you get something like 10 comments on that post. If it takes you a week, fine. If it takes two weeks, fine as well.

      The more popular you become, the more often you can post.

      You need to do this in order to have social proof on your blogs. Nobody likes to comment on old posts, and if there are no comments, readers are far less likely to read and subscribe.

      Another thing to consider is your creative output: never, ever, ever go 100%. Publish a lot less than your 100%. Life tends to happen, so you need to have plenty of content to publish if you are unable to write for a day or two.

      1. Thank you, this was honestly very helpful. I greatly appreciate the feedback. Keep up to good work.

  2. Do you ever find it hard to separate writing as a passion from writing as a job? It sounds like you’re split into 800 directions. How did you learn to keep up when first stepping into literate stardom?

    1. Sometimes it feels like a chore. But everything feels like that sometimes. The difference is that often I’m reminded of how much I love it, of why I do it, and the impact that my words have on others.

      The truth is that if you don’t love it, you won’t succeed. It’s not logical to pursue this journey. It takes an insane amount of work.

      About the second question, what do you mean? What effect it had on me the fact that I’d receive over a thousand e-mails per week?
