How to Blog like an Artist

A couple months ago, I wrote a blog post about blogging like an artist.

But what does that mean? When you think about it, what does “art” mean?

Is it that inner fire, the creative spark, the connection between seemingly unrelated dots, the unapologetic expression of one’s personality, the moment of real human empathy and connection?

What does art even have to do with blogging?

I’d say that art is everything around us. Art and life are so, so close to one another that at times they even touch.

And I believe that a blogger could aspire to the kind of sensibility required to be an artist.

After all, this site is called The Art of Blogging for a reason, right? Continue reading “How to Blog like an Artist”

Five Tips for Finding Time to Write

Time seems to be a Goliath that many of us David writers wrestle with.

I have a confession. I regularly struggle with my time—especially when writing fiction.

I look at my “to do” list and freak out. I’m guessing I’m not alone.

Despite the challenges we face, there are proven tactics that can really help us sit down and write.

Here are my top five tips to tackling time: Continue reading “Five Tips for Finding Time to Write”

Today, Not Tomorrow

One of the biggest mistakes when it comes to blogging is Procrastination. With a capital P.

Folks thinking they’ll take blogging seriously TOMORROW.

Take action TOMORROW.

Or a week from now.

Or next year.

I’ll be honest with you. That kind of mentality is absolutely guaranteed to fail.

I see bloggers stagnate for years and it’s almost always a result of simply put, not taking enough action…usually combined with taking WRONG action based on awful advice.

It’s a vicious cycle.

But one that you can choose to end … if you want it badly enough.

How Not to be Boring (as a Blogger)

There’s something you need to know, and I’m afraid you’re not going to like it.

Your blog is putting me to sleep.

I gave it about three seconds of my attention…

Nothing grabbed my eye. No headline inspired me to read. No images drew me in.

And here’s the thing: it was easy for me to rid myself of your insipid writing, your bland blog. Closed my Internet Browser and that was it.

It doesn’t have to be that way. A few tweaks here, a little more effort there, and your website will stop me in my tracks.

Here’s four ways not to be boring for you to try out this week. This will not be boring… Continue reading “How Not to be Boring (as a Blogger)”

Make Money Blogging: The Program

*Because all the other cool names were taken.

Someone to guide you every step of the way.

So you don’t have to waste time reading through tons of outdated blog posts.

If you want to make money from your blog, you’re so going to fall in love with program, in spite its dumb name.


Hi, Cristian here, crazy Romanian kid all grown up who kind of never smiles in photographs.

Oh, and I have stopped wearing glasses back in 2008 or so.

Anyways, the course I am launching today is a super simple way to earn what some call “online income” — without too much stress.

But… are you worthy?

Do you really want to be a blogger? THE BLOGGER?

Are you genuinely passionate about your blog that you are willing to do the work required to earn a nice bit of side income from it?

Do you love writing?

If the answer is no to any of these questions, do close the tab on this post right now.

Still here?

Awesome!

But how do you go about monetizing your blog? With ads? Well, ads are not going to do the trick, unfortunately. And it’s going to be almost impossible to earn real money by placing ads on your blog.

So, what do you do then?

It depends on your blog, your niche, your ambitions, and your skills.

And it’s also going to matter a lot of you invest in this e-course or not.

I’ll present to you the best ways to monetize your blog, how to go about it, what to sell, how to sell it, and why you need to sell that.

Oh, by the way…

This picture? This is how much this blog has earned me in its twelve months of existence so far.

Want to make money blogging?

I can teach you how.

This isn’t one of those online courses that offers you a ton of info which you then have to figure out.

When I say this will help you earn an income, I mean it.

I will hop on FOUR Skype calls with you to go over your blog, give you feedback, and answer any burning questions you have.

This is what I wish I had when I started, back in April 2012. It would have saved me years of working 12-14 hour days, grinding away with nothing to show for it.

There’s a lot packed in this program, so let me offer you a glimpse of what awaits you:

Call No. 1: It’s All About The Content

Wait, what?

Yes, the most essential part of making money from your blog is about the content itself.

I’ll teach you how to write extraordinary content. So you can stand out from the noise and build an audience that trusts you.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Stand out and attract an audience
  • How to write content that goes viral
  • How to take your content from “good” to “freaking amazing!” by changing the way you think.
Call No. 2: The Balancing Act

Contrary to what you might be inclined to think, making money from a blog does not mean you have to write only about what reader want to read.

No. It’s all a balancing act.

If you write about what you love AND about what your readers want to read, then you will earn an income from your blog.

In this second Skype call you’ll learn:

  • How to harness your passion
  • How to make your audience admire, respect, and trust you
  • How to punch those damn keys!
Call No. 3: Getting Readers

On our third Skype call I’ll explain in detail how to go from 0 to over 1,000 visits per day.

You’ll learn:

  • How to get popular bloggers in your niche to link to your posts
  • How to turn one-time visitors into avid fans
  • How to get your content shared across multiple social media platforms
  • How to develop a winning strategy in terms of getting more readers
Call No. 4: Build Your Brand

On our last call you’ll learn all there is to know about becoming a blogging brand.

Don’t be just another blogger, but THE BLOGGER.

You’ll learn:

  • How to choose the right name/domain for your blog
  • The elements of turning a blog into a brand
  • How to have the right mindset, so you have supreme self-confidence when it comes to your blog

Also…

This is when we cover the best ways to monetize your blog, the differences between them, marketing and promoting your products, and more.

It’s the final piece of the puzzle, so to speak.

You’ll learn:

  • How to monetize content you’ve already created
  • How to build a membership site
  • How to earn thousands of dollars from affiliate marketing

Want to know the irony?

But I know this is not why you are reading this post. You want to know how to save precious time. Because time is never enough. And how to write a blog post in 15 minutes, which is what? A bus drive? Not even that. A bit of your lunch break? A cigarette and two sips of coffee, if you’re into that sort of thing?

But please be aware of this: yes, content is king. Yes, if you can, you should spend as much time as possible writing, rewriting, editing, and polishing each of your posts. But if you’re on a tight schedule, being able to write fast is a blessing.

Blogging Is All About Problem-Solving

Think of all aspects of life as pyramids. Much like Maslow’s famous pyramid of needs.

Now, the curious thing is that each need is its own pyramid. Of course, the baseline is low. Very low.

Maybe not a lot of people are starving in the world right now as they used to in the past, but most people’s eating habits are pretty much destroying higher brain function and messing up with their bodies. Junk food is everywhere.

In fact, it’s crazy how difficult it is to eat healthy food.

Imagine how it would be walking down the street eating a cucumber or a carrot. People would look at you and be like, “What is that guy eating? A cucumber? What the…”

But if you were eating a hamburger…

How many people do get enough rest?

How many people are happy in their relationships?

How many people can say that they have the friends they want? Are you helping those around you to become better people? Are they? Continue reading “Blogging Is All About Problem-Solving”

10 Ways to Feel Good about Your Writing

Admit it. There are few things as intimidating as the blinding white of a blank page.

It makes no difference if it’s an empty sheet lying on your desk, or a blank screen aiming between your eyes. Defeating “nothing” by subjecting it to “something” with our words is what gives a writer breath.

Whether to pay our bills or please our muse, eventually words must spill. Here are ten ways to help plow past this nagging feeling of insecurity and feel good about your words.
