Do you want to become a better blogger? Silly question, eh.
In that case, I’ve got some great news. The best way to become a better blogger is to blog. And to keep blogging.
If this blogging thing is difficult and frustrating, then you must force yourself to do it, and do it, and do it, until you get better at it.

Then there are a number of thing we can do to become better at this blogging thing. Quite a few of them… Continue reading “50 Ways to Become a Better Blogger”
It’s frustrating, isn’t it? Sometimes even downright discouraging.
You have so many ideas you want to share with the world. So many things you want to say. So much you want to try.
But your job is demanding. You’re constantly juggling family schedules and obligations. You’re always heading off annoying interruptions.
You wonder if you’ll ever be able to make blogging a permanent part of your life.
You want to get your work out there, but at the same time you’re not an idealist.
You love writing, but it’s not just about self-expression for you.
You don’t need to be a unique snowflake who makes every word trumpet from the heavens so that unicorns prance down on Earth.
You just want to create something you can be proud of.
To finish something you start.
To see some results for a change.
You want to live life on your own terms and change the lives of others — and you know you could do it… if only you knew how.
There’s got to be an art to it, right? There’s got to be some secrets that few are willing to share with the world, some sort of trick that allows you to turn off your phone, sit down at your desk, and produce thousands upon thousands of words.

I’m not going to waste your time with marketing stuff. I’m not going to tell you that this or that product is going to change your life, because it’s not, and because if you don’t purchase one of my products, you’ll still be able to live your life and keep blogging.
That’s the truth.
But it does help buying one of my programs.
There’s a big difference when you make a commitment and there’s someone who makes sure that you do the work.
Yeah, you’ll still have to work. You’ll still have to blog. To do the actual work of writing words, replying to comments, and learning as you go along.
But you won’t be doing this alone. You’ll have someone who’s done this already offer you a strategy and ideas — stuff that would take years to learn by yourself.
Can you live without all this?
But if you want to be successful as a blogger, if you like my style and would like to work together, if you are serious about blogging, then do click here to read more about our programs.
The Internet has made it possible for us to live in a world of “information overload.” A few clicks, a few swipes on a smartphone, and we have access to more ideas, blog posts, and news stories than we could ever possibly consume.
It’s hard to remember — or imagine, if you’re that young — when information was a scarce resource. But time is still a scarce resource. And with this much information easily available, you must treat your readers’ time with respect when they give it to you.
Especially if you want to build trust with your audience so they give you more of their time in the future.
The curious paradox is that even though it doesn’t cost anything to publish blog posts, send emails, share our life with others through social media updates, if you’re not adding value with those pixels, you’re wasting the time of your readers.
And time is an irreplaceable resource. Time is precious. We all know it.
So avoid these eight common blogging mistakes below at all costs. At all costs. Continue reading “8 Blogging Mistakes that Waste Your Readers’ Time”

Let’s admit it: Blogging is one of the best ways to grow a business, promote a certain cause, or spread new ideas, because you offer people crucial insights, and thus you gain their attention and trust.
Blogging is less about converting random people into customers, but more about making friends. Establishing the kind of connections that might, just might, last forever.
While there are as many ways to approach blogging as there are blogs, some things are more effective when it comes to gaining influence.
Here are five essential laws of persuasive blogging to keep in mind: Continue reading “Persuasive Blogging”

On average, 8 out of 10 people will read the title of your blog post, but only 2 out of 10 will read the rest. This is why a great headline is so important.

So, how do you write a great headline for your post? Continue reading “How to Write a Great Headline”
