How to Find Your Blogging Muse

A blank page.

There’s nothing more terrifying for a writer. Not an actual blank page, of course, but a Word Document with no words on it, that mysterious absence of words that is amplified by us staring at the white screen of death for so long that we feel our brains exploding.

You think and think and think, but nothing is happening, no matter how hard you try.

It makes you feel… powerless. Frustrated. Angry. Sad. Bitter. Sure, it’s your mind, your thoughts, your words, but there’s a bit of magic to writing, like Tinkerbell sprinkling lost boys with pixie dust and enabling them to fly.

No amount of happy thoughts will help you fly without the pixie dust. You need that extra bit of magic, that spark that makes your words take flight.

Where does that magic come from?

Well, from your blogging muse, of course. Continue reading “How to Find Your Blogging Muse”

Do You Want to Grow Your Blog and Make Money? Give Something for Free

Some might say that we live in a world of free entertainment and information. Ads are supposed to finance everyone’s needs. Somehow.

To make matters worse, there isn’t a single day that goes by without a e-book, video, or podcast being released for free. Products that offer the kind of content that a lot of people would pay quite a lot for.

You’d think that income from blogging would be shrinking in the face of all this free information, but it keeps getting stronger. How can that be?

The 3 Best Ways to Hold Your Readers’ Attention

Your blog post might have a brilliant headline, the perfect balance  of emotion and logic, and maybe you’ve even captured your reader’s attention with a great introduction.

But after your reader clicks through, does your post hold their interest?

If you can’t keep the reader’s attention, nothing else matters. And this brave new world demands your best techniques, because tempting distractions are always just a click or swipe away.

All writers and bloggers have their favorite tricks to glue reader attention to their content, so here are three of mine. Continue reading “The 3 Best Ways to Hold Your Readers’ Attention”

Sick and Tired

Aren’t you sick and tired?

To put your heart and soul into every piece of you write, and no one cares? Aren’t you tired of it all? To write and write, to publish post after post, and no one gives a damn? Friends and family don’t count; they’re supposed to be supporting you anyhow.

And people don’t get it, right? They can’t see this dream of yours, they can’t see inside your soul, can’t see how much you want it.

You can’t measure want. You can’t measure any of it.

Don’t you feel angry? Don’t you wake up some mornings and just want to yell? Stare in the mirror and yell your guts out. You should be dominating this.

You should be the greatest damn blogger this world has ever seen.

But you’re so sick and tired of it all. Nothing seems to work. It’s as if you’re invisible.

I get it. I do. I used to be just like you.

I used to wake up in the morning, defeated. Held my head down every time I had to tell people I had my blog. I was ashamed. What I had wasn’t a blog. It was a static page. Words that no one read, words that no one ever commented on.

You just want to give up, don’t you?

Or maybe you’ve managed to lie to yourself that it doesn’t matter? It’s just a blog. It’s just some writing. It’s just a hobby.

No, it’s not.

If this is your dream, then it’s no one’s right to take it away from you.

If this is what you want, then you have to fight for it.

You have to find ways to learn, to grow, to expand your view of the world. You need to be around the people who have figured a way out of this no man’s land you’re currently inhabiting.

How bad you want it?

Be honest.

Do you want to be a successful blogger?

Do you really want it?

Then do whatever it takes. You’re not a kid anymore, to make excuses.

You either do whatever it takes, or not.

But don’t lie to yourself. It does no good.

If you want to become a great blogger… not good, but great, then you need to enroll in this program. Last spot.

A six month one on one program with me. We’ll have loads of fun. You’ll develop the right tools, the proper mindset.

You’ll be dominating it.

The people who once didn’t care about your words will be sending you fan mail.

Six months of getting it right, that’s all it takes.

Six months with me, and you’ll know everything that you need to know in order to create amazing content.

But you gotta hurry. Last spot available, and for only $499 $299, this is the cheapest program that comes with this kind of guarantee.

Increase your readership to at least 5,000 followers in six months, or you get your money back.

That’s what I offer.

Now, ask yourself…

How bad do you want it?

This Four Letter Word Keeps You from Writing

Writer’s block.

The most hated words by those who love them more than anything else in the world.

Also known as creative bankruptcy.

Truth be told, writer’s block is all about one four-letter word. One that we rarely even want to mention.

It’s an “F word” that is frowned upon by people from all areas of life. And this word is keeping you from writing.

Fear.

Fear affects us all more than we care to admit, and it’s especially insidious for writers. Writing online is one of those activities where you’re really putting yourself out there, and the critics seems to be all to eager. But as we’ll see below, failure and mediocrity are not the only things we fear.

Most fear works at the subconscious level and manifests itself in the form of procrastination and writer’s block. We want to write that novel or business book, start that killer blog, release that article that will boost our authority… and yet we keep putting it off.

I don’t like to waste time on regret, because, well, it’s a waste of time. But looking back, I see I’ve wasted so much time in my writing life because I let fear hold me back.

And the truth is, every time I push myself in a new direction, I’m still afraid. I don’t think that ever changes—it’s just part of the game.

The key is to not let it stop you.

Here are the main ways fear holds us back as writers, with a few tips for looking fear in the face and sitting down to work. Remember, courage is not the absence of fear, it’s doing what needs to be done despite fear. Continue reading “This Four Letter Word Keeps You from Writing”

The 7 Deadly Sins of Blogging

It’s easy to get discouraged when reading about the millions and millions of other folks who also blog.

The good news?

Most of them kind of suck, because they never bother to do a bit of research, to learn from their mistakes, so they keep doing them over and over again.

Only Read This if You Are Serious about Blogging

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 do not get lucky. I make my 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?”
