Why many aspects of blogging gets easier as you become more popular

mm

Published

on

I have said time and time again that the hardest period in a blogs life is the first few months. This is the time when you need to write lots of great posts and promote your blog extensively too. A sad reality is that many great posts which are wrote near the start of a blogs life will not be read by many people. Thankfully, the more popular your blog becomes the easier it is run to the blog in many ways.

First with the news

First with groundbreaking newsHave you ever wondered why the most popular blogs always seem to be the ones who break the big news stories. Frustrating isn’t it! There are a few reasons why they are able to do this time and time again and why smaller blogs will find it difficult to compete with newsbreaking. First of all, many top blogs have a team of full time staff working for them. Not only do these staff members write posts, they also spend a lot of time reading other news sites to make sure they cover all the main stories.

Secondly, the reason popular blogs are first with a lot of news is because the news comes to them. Companies which are launching new websites or products need to let their audience know about the launch so what they do is contact the most popular websites in their niche and tell them about the product launch. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. If you worked as an internet marketer for a new mobile phone company you would obviously contact top blogs like Endgadget and Gizmodo as they have hundreds of thousands of subscribers. Put simply, internet companies contact the largest blog and news sites about an announcement as they know they will get the exposure they want.

Lastly, top blogs get the head start on most news stories because of their readers. Many blog readers contact the owner about new stories they read about and the more readers your blog has, the more emails you are likely to get from readers telling you about the latest stories.

Being the first to break the news on a story is a big deal as you can expect a lot of incoming links from it if the story becomes popular. If your blog is still new then it’s highly unlikely you will be the first to break the news on an event so my advice is to blog about it and give your own opinion on it.

Less time spent looking for post ideas

Time is preciousThe more popular your blog becomes the less time you have to spend looking for post ideas. Writers block is something that can affect anyone however it is usually down to not staying up to date with the latest news about your chosen topic.

As I mentioned before, the more popular your blog becomes the more emails you will get from readers and companies. This can save you a lot of time researching for post ideas and will make running your blog more efficient in many respects.

Another great source for post ideas is pingbacks. When your blog gets more and more popular you will see other blogs and websites linking to your homepage and to your posts. Pingbacks are great for two reasons. First of all, they can be a great resource for post ideas. If you take the time to read all the blogs which are linking to you I’m sure you will come across posts which will inspire you to write your opnion on the subject. Secondly, more incoming links means more traffic and as I have shown so far, the more traffic your blog gets the easier many aspects of blogging becomes.

More Money, More Options

Once you get more traffic and more subscribers you will find it easier to monetarize your blog. This will open a lot of doors for you and will give you more freedom with how you develop and promote your blog.

Show me the money

More money will allow you to do many things including :

  • Get a unique professional design for your blog
  • Hire some additional posters to help increase post frequency
  • Promote your blog via other blogs, affiliate networks and PPC campaigns

All of the above should help you gain more subscribers and if you are paying for them your normal blogging routine will not be disrupted much. This is an important thing to realise. Developing a new design for your blog and promoting your blog via free methods like commentating and social media can be very time consuming so outsourcing these tasks can help you concentrate on writing on your writing duties.

Overview

There is no denying that blog owners of popular blogs work hard and spend a lot of time running their site. However, in my opinion many of the frustrating elements of blogging go away when your blog is popular and your overall blogging experience is much more rewarding. You get more comments, more feedback and probably more money too.

Blogging can be a thankless task at the beginning but if you perservere and work hard at it I’m sure your blog will grow and many of the things you found difficult will get easier.

Good luck 🙂

What Does Your Blog Need?

Published

on

I wrote an eBook explaining what your blog needs:

6 Things Your Blog Needs Today

Success finds bloggers who cover all bases.

If you need nothing and feel your blog needs nothing, you succeed and live your wildest dreams.

Successful bloggers know adding the right elements to blogs and beginning blogs the right way accelerates your success. Plus it feels good to begin blogging intelligently.

What does your blog need?

1: Domain and Hosting

Invest in a domain and hosting.

Accelerate your blogging success.

Domain names make you stand out.

Observe how Pat Flynn invested in Smart Passive Income.

Of course you know immediately; the blogger covers smart passive income. Passive income seekers know the resource because Pat bought a domain name.

He also invested in hosting to ensure he owned his blog.

Take this step to control:

  • branding
  • income potential
  • blog voice

Own your site. You need to own your blog to be in control of your blogging campaign.

2: Premium Theme

Invest money in a premium theme.

Stand out from the crowd.

Circulating money on a premium, eye-catching, clear theme emits a professional, impressive, powerful message.

This was from one of my many trips to Thailand.

Readers see you are a serious, successful or success-seeking, blogger. Of course you gain trust and grow your readership quickly by investing money in a premium theme.

Why do you need a premium theme? Would you trust a blogger who uses a cheap-looking, heavy, non-professional theme? If someone cannot afford to invest $60 in a premium theme you better not trust their advice, their insight and their sharing. Why? Serious, skilled bloggers never allow $60 to dictate their life’s direction and failing, struggling, unskilled bloggers make the foolish decision to not chase their dreams over $60.

3: Content

Content drives blogs.

Your blog needs content to:

  • prove you know your stuff
  • spread your presence online
  • inspire readers to follow you
  • inspire readers to trust you

Visit Blogging From Paradise.

Look around for a few minutes. Read 3 of my recent posts. Do you see why content drives the blogging engine?

Imagine if you saw only 1 blog post. Every blogger begins somewhere but publishing helpful content from a generous, success-focused energy distances you from most bloggers in your niche.

Imagine seeing 1 to 5 blog posts on a blog. Good introduction no doubt.

Imagine seeing 50 to 100 blog posts on a blog. Massive impact.

Focus less on post numbers and more on being generous with time and talents. Content just shows off what you know.

As folks see you know your stuff thru your volume of helpful posts you begin to:

  • increase traffic
  • boost your blogging profits
  • expand your presence
  • increase brand awareness
  • help more folks
  • make a big impact in your niche

Content makes everything grow.

Publish content on the regular to become a successful blogger.

Focus on Your Dreams

Concentrate on your dreams from a relaxed, chill energy.

You need dreams to feel the calm, detached confidence of bloggers who invest in:

See your blogging wins now. You succeed now. Own it.

Feel good about your blogging career. You are rocking it out.

Succeed, being the blogger who covers all blogging needs.

Bonus Need

Invest in a blogging course.

Your blog – and you – need a blogging blueprint to follow in order to succeed from a calm, confident, orderly, relaxed energy.

Blog like a success.

Learn from the best to become a successful blogger.

Courses just give you a structure for learning in the proper format.

Imagine sitting down in a classroom to learn disciplines from a professor.

You do the same thing through a blogging course.

How Can You Turn Criticism into Blogging Profits?

Published

on

I wrote an entire eBook on lessons I learned from critics:

6 Life Lessons I Learned from Nasty Critics

As you see greater blogging success, you get criticized.

No blogger avoids criticism.

Learning how to convert nasty criticism into blogging profits helps you be a highly successful blogger.

Picture This

Imagine someone tossing big rocks at you.

Fools step in front of the rocks, injuring themselves.

Idiots catch the rocks and throw said rocks back at folks, wasting precious time and energy on rock tossing morons.

Wise humans avoid the rocks, allowing the stones to reach terra firma, and build a castle from all the granite-type rocks tossed their way.

Highly successful, happy bloggers are like wise humans; building something meaningful and profitable from inevitable criticism, versus taking criticism personally (stepping in front of rocks) or fighting critics (throwing rocks back at rock throwers).

I wrote 2 eBooks on the topic.

In addition to the prior eBook I also wrote:

How to Turn Harsh Blogging Criticism into Sweet Blogging Profits: 11 Tips

Observe the product page.

I profit through an:

  • eBook version
  • audio book version
  • paperback version
  • mass market paperback version

of the topic.

I make money through 4 income streams based on teaching folks how to profit through blogging criticism.

How can you convert criticism into coin?

Follow these tips.

Breathe Deeply and Relax

Most humans:

  • fight criticism
  • feel the sting of criticism
  • feel embarrassed about being criticized
  • fight critics
  • go into a shell after being criticized

Breathe deep. Relax.

Feel energies and emotions in reaction to being criticized.

Release said energies.

Be calm, confident and poised.

Establish the proper energy for profiting through criticism.

Gain Clarity

Criticism is a projection of individual; we see ourselves in others.

100% of the time, critics speak 100% of themselves, not you, through their criticism.

Knowing this, you do not take criticism personally. Ditto for gaining clarity in all you do, blogging-wise.

I reacted with anger, annoyance, embarrassment and shame on reading my first few 1 star audio book reviews. Turns out, those fear-based feelings needed to be addressed and released for me to generate more income through audio books.

Increased profits flow to bloggers who feel clear on income channels.

Being criticized forces you to face, embrace and release fears concerning income channels, said clearing resulting in clarity and greater sales.

If you react negatively to criticism, the reaction suggests you have fears to feel and clear regarding the criticism. Clearing these negative energies allows more profits to flow through the income streams because fear strangles income while clarity increases income.

Convert Criticism into Tangible Products

Turn hate into create.

Convert criticism into tangible profits.

Note my 2 eBooks, my audio book and paperback.

Create an online course to help your readers process criticism.

Strike while the iron feels hot; create immediately after receiving criticism to allow your prolific ideas to flow.

Add a price tag.

Profit.

See Problems and Profit in Projection

I create:

  • blog posts
  • guest posts
  • videos
  • podcasts

based on critical projections bandied about by critics.

Critics may or may not see errors in their ways.

This was from my 2 month trip to Oman.

I just stress how criticizing promotes their failure, strangles success and prolongs misery and suffering, based on my content.

If critics wake up and read, these folks become likely readers, fans, customers and clients, because if I solved their problems for free I can solve their problems for pay.

Profit through the Discipline of Detached Observation

Observing feelings from a detached, calm, confident energy versus reacting to feelings is a skill most millionaires cultivate.

What better way can you develop this skill than by reading and processing criticism without reacting to your emotions?

Wealthy bloggers observe knee jerk reactions in their being, feel energies, release, and proceed to profit. You see immense patience, persistence, poise and profiting. But the blogger just watches, feels and releases, versus reacting.

Move Up the Energetic Ladder into More Prospering, Higher Circles by Ignoring Critics

Critics vibe from a fear-based, lower, poverty conscious energy.

Ignore these folks to rocket higher in blogging circles, toward a loving, prosperity conscious, profitable energy.

I made blogging friends in high places by completely ignoring lower energy folks, some of whom criticized me and my blog.

Starve lower energies.

Make room for higher energies.

Profit, free yourself and see increasing blogging success.

What Do You Sell and How Do You Sell It?

Published

on

One easy way to make money blogging is to get clear on calling folks to buy your stuff and hire you.

Invest in my blogging course.

Visit my blog for blogging ebooks and blogging audiobooks.

Advertise on my blog.

Paypal me.

See how easy?

I clearly call you to invest.

You invest.

Simply put, knowing what you sell and how you sell it increases your blogging profits because people respond to your energy.

Prior lines? Each feels clear and comfortable to me. I know what I offer. Of course I know how I offer it. How, meaning, how I feel offering.

Imagine feeling light, airy, calm, confident and detached as you call readers to buy or hire. Money feelings. Good.

But imagine feeling heavy, resistant, uncomfortable, awkward or embarrassed calling readers to buy or hire.

Your greatest pro blogging success occurs by shifting from heavy to light during money calls.

Or feeling light, airy, detached and clear on calls because you freely share what you sell and sell with clarity results in big blogging profits.

Audio Books

I note a spike in audio book sales and reviews. Of course I barely touched my audio books over 3 years. I generate almost completely passive income; the audio books sell themselves.

After seeing royalty payments recently I pondered the passive blogging income; I barely actively sell ‘em so the what and how seems non-existent. But detaching just lets what and how unfold gracefully and beautifully, resulting in virtually complete passive income.

This was from my trip to Bali.

Getting almost 100% clear on what and how results in ever increasing, passive profits.

Why?

Blogging is energy.

Blogging Energy

Imagine feeling clear on receiving money from someone. You just accept it.

A friend buys lunch. You cheerily accept.

Why?

Your energy dictates you clearly accept and enjoy the money or purchase.

Ditto for blogging income streams. Emit the same clear, relaxed, accepting, receiving energy. Money flows to you thru clear streams. Of course my audiobooks sell passively; I am clear on that channel.

Boosting your blogging profits requires you freely offer what you sell and sell from a clear, confident, abundant, knowing, detached energy.

Example; note how I include 1 or more calls to action for all blog posts and videos. I offer what I sell freely. My readers never need guess. Clarity. No hiding or awkwardness or discomfort. I am clear. I sell.

How do I sell? Of course, from a calm, clear, confident, knowing I am successful energy. Naturally, I sell and profit because my energy around what and how feels clear to me.

Next Level Profits

Profit like top bloggers in your niche.

Get clear on receiving money.

Visualize yourself owning ample money. Feel rich.

I enjoy counting money in mind so it feels real to me. Swiftly, I make money through iTunes, Bitcoin and Quora, as has been the case recently.

Bitcoin and Quora are neither directly related to blogging but so goes money; it cares not channels, it justs finds bloggers clear on receiving money. Plus my blogging related profits increase too.

Picturing your wealth serves you because what feels real in mind flows into your experience.

Money and worldly success find you through profitable ideas, people and circumstances.

Execute the ideas from a chill, relaxed energy. Profit.

Freely offer what you offer. Promote yourself through every blog post and video. Tell us what you sell; we want to buy it. Sell with clarity. Know success and profits are yours; promote with clarity, detachment and a knowing that you already have profits because mind owns profits.

Blogging Is Not That Hard for Mind Scientists

Every day, my email inbox delights me.

My visualization sessions yield fascinating, profitable opportunities.

Mind creates reality.

As within, so without.

Blogging is not that hard at all for bloggers who visualize success, who feel rich, who count their blogging wins and who keep things positive.

Success follows success-focused bloggers.

Profits follow rich-feeling, riches-seeing bloggers.

As within, so without.

Get clear on selling and receiving money.

Profit.
