How to Blog like a Boss

The Internet has revolutionized the way we think. As a matter of fact, I believe that it’s going to change the way we operate and perceive the world around us a lot more than we can even imagine right now.

In other words, there’s never been a better time to be a creator instead of a consumer, to be exposed to so many different points of views and beliefs, absorb them, and then offer your own thoughts to almost everyone who can find your words and read them.

What does this mean for you?

Well, for one, it means that your words, if carefully crafted, can nudge the world a bit.

If that isn’t something to get excited about, I don’t know what is.

What about your personality? Your fears? Expectations? Desires?

Networking for The Novice Blogger

When just starting out, it is quite clear that a blogger has no audience, so to speak.

0 followers isn’t inviting one to put his best content, of course.

As a matter of fact, I think that lacking an audience is far worse than earning no income from blogging.

The thing is, people tend to go about building an audience the wrong way.

Notice that?

I said, building an audience.

You have to build it, one reader after another. One great blog post after another.

But how exactly do you do that?

Easy. You network.

The Best Way to Get More Blog Subscribers

This is the question I get asked the most.

Despite writing on this subject a couple of times, and basically dissecting every tip and tactic I know for converting site visitors into regular readers, people seem to think there’s some big secret.

No one wants to believe that there’s no magical secret. They’d rather fantasize about some forbidden technique that drives subscriber attraction. If I’d just share the magical words that make the difference, they’d immediately put those words to use.
