Are You 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 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?”

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”

How to Write Incredibly Creative Blog Posts

Creativity is extremely important when it comes to crafting effective content. And, yes, content should also be useful and valuable to the reader, not an indulgent exercise in self expression.

Still, creativity is key when it comes to content that works, content that engages your audience, content that enriches other people’s lives. While creativity for its own sake is a smart way to strengthen your lateral thinking skills and to align your work with what you love to do, it’s when you create something useful to others that you add value to the world.

How to Edit Your Blog Posts like a Boss

Write. Edit. Write. Edit. Edit. Edit. Write…

Does this sound familiar?

I bet it does…

Truth be told, I used to say that one knows a piece of writing is properly edited when he feels sick just thinking about having to read it one more time.

And it’s easy to drive yourself crazy trying to edit like that.

So… what do you have to do instead? Continue reading “How to Edit Your Blog Posts like a Boss”

Why No One Reads Your Blog (and What to Do about It)

So, you’re not getting much traffic, right?

I’ve been there, and well… it sucks. No other way to put it.

And worst of all, it’s not always clear why it’s happening.

It’s not like you’re a spammer. You genuinely care about your audience, and you try to publish content that’ll help them.

But nobody gives a damn.

And you’re beginning to wonder…

What are you doing wrong? Continue reading “Why No One Reads Your Blog (and What to Do about It)”

All Good Things Come to an End

It happened to me on more than one occasion, when on a 1-on-1 Skype chat with a client, that I get really excited and blurt out strategies and tricks and tips and a detailed plan of action for the next month or so because listening to them describe what they love gives me the right kind of energy and provides me with the clarity I need to know how to help them grow their blog.

The thing is: I love leaving people with not just that “moment” . . . but also a full set of meaningful, organized steps to take.

That being said, if you wish one-on-one help with growing your blog, expanding your readership, earning money, or even becoming better at blog writing, this is your chance.

There’s only one spot left in the 0 to 5K Program.

Also, there are two spots for one-on-one sessions.

That is it.

I’d love to sit down with you via Skype and create a strategic, thoughtful action plan for your next few months of growing your blog. . . the smart way.

To be honest, I considered crowding this post with all the testimonials from folks who I’ve helped before, but the reality is, you probably know by now whether or not you want my help, whether what you’re doing now is working at the ideal level, and whether you need a fresh approach to growing your blog . . . or not.

What if by this same time next month, after we’ve decided on a strategy and you’ve spent your days focused on implementing it with ninja-like quickness?

Honestly, working with you on this programs is fun for me too. From health and wellness coaching, to financial planning for high powered women, to teaching creative writing to kids, we’ve crafted smart plans for unique people like you with amazing blogs like yours.

Weeks of one on one sessions, fresh ideas, brainstorming, and advice that is designed to guide you through specific actions, all of them worth well over $1,000 each if it were any other superblogger.

It’s pretty simple math, actually:

You + me + Any Program = actual magic (okay, I mean, you’ll have to do the work of implementing the strategy, but you get the point).

I don’t want you to jump on this opportunity if it’s NOT the right time for you. One million percent don’t enroll if (1) you’ve been hearing about “blogging thing” and just want to see how you can make some quick money, or (2) you have no idea who you want to help or what you care about.

But if you HAVE been hearing about my programs and reading along with this blog post and thinking “I need this clarity and focus; I’m definitely serious about my blogging . . . and I do realize this price for everything is literally insane” . . . then click here to grab the last spot.

What Blogging is all About

Blogging has many benefits. And it can be a great way to earn a living, to inspire others, to change the world.

Blogging is also about problem-solving. Helping others to fix certain issues, to grow and evolve, to overcome obstacles in their lives, to become more productive, etc.

But, ultimately, and if we are completely honest with ourselves, blogging is simply about people.

That’s it. Continue reading “What Blogging is all About”
