How to Successfully Connect with Top Bloggers

Published

on

Top bloggers can help spread your word. This makes blogger networking play a part in your blogging campaign.

As you see from my featured image from New Zealand; networking has been good to me.

Who you know, how you know them and their perception of you skyrockets your blogging success.

I built a relationship with Zac Johnson a few years ago. He invited me to guest post on Blogging Tips based on my skills and the quality of our friendship.

Zac asked me to guest post because I successfully connected with a top blogger.

People I promote successfully connected with me.

How simple.

Make an impact. Bond with a full time, pro blogger. Watch how your blogging star shines bright by befriending top bloggers.

Blogger Networking

Influential bloggers need to be wooed. Speak their language and mimic their behavior to impact blogging big dawgs.

Learn from top bloggers the art of building bonds with blogging power brokers. I find it easy to bond with successful bloggers. Be positive, boost your self image, be generous and cut the strings.

Why should you network with top bloggers?

Watch this video I broadcast on Facebook:

Why Being Positive Accelerates Your Blogging Success Quickly

I nabbed 270 views, 4 shares and 49 comments because:

  • I shared inspiring content
  • I shared helpful content
  • successful bloggers spread my word
  • successful bloggers alerted me to the power of live broadcasts

Surround yourself only with influential bloggers. Connect with these pros. Learn from them. Observe how fast top bloggers accelerate your success.

I have chilled for a few hours this morning offline and online because successful bloggers spread my word around the clock.

While I was watching Netflix last night and sleeping, my Twitter followers retweeted me around the clock. Many are top bloggers, spreading my word far and wide.

Easy peasy way to succeed; blogger networking with the big dawgs of the world.

This is how you do it.

Be Positive

I focus on positive ideas. Top bloggers move into my experience.

Example

I experienced another blogging win a few moments ago by receiving a royalty payment for my audio books on Amazon, iTunes and Audible. Big time win. I am happy and feel positive by focusing on this win.

Top bloggers resonate with my positive vibes. People love a positive blogger reaching out to them. Goodness knows I do.

Check out my little lizard buddy here in the yard in Thailand.

Be positive. Focus on your wins. Focus on your blogging success. Be as grateful for your millionth dollar as your first dollar. Keep that sense of wonder. Top bloggers love top bloggers who keep things positive because positive emotions attract loving, successful, happy bloggers.

Boost Your Self Image

Boost your self image. See yourself in a positive, empowered life.

Know success is yours. Own it. Be it.

See yourself succeeding because you succeed with your blog now.

Count your blogging wins. Have you broken 6 figures? Count that win. Did you attract 100,000 visitors this month? Count the win. Did you step closer to your blogging dreams? Count the win.

Keep counting wins to feel better and better about yourself.

Influential bloggers give their attention and energy to posturing, calm, confident bloggers. I only give my energy to empowered bloggers who exude a calm, cool confidence, borne of a healthy self image. Succeed by seeing yourself in an empowered, inspired light. We love folks who love themselves and see themselves as succeeding.

Be Generous

Be generous in creating paid and free content.

Being generous appeals to influential bloggers.

Before I give attention and energy to bloggers I feel their intent; only generous bloggers get my attention and energy. I became successful by being generous so I only align with generous bloggers. Call it the law of attraction, energy focus or the simple idea that birds of a feather flock together.

This is from my 1 month trip to Myanmar.

Help people through:

  • blog posts
  • guest posts
  • live broadcasts
  • promoting other bloggers

I happily promote successful blogger Alonzo Pichardo, losing track of his mentions on Blogging Tips.

He is both incredibly successful and generous in all he does.

No wonder why we have bonded and skyrocketed to the top of our blogging niches.

Top bloggers vibe with generous bloggers.

Get our attention by being generous.

Cut the Strings

Release expectations from any interaction with top pros.

Being generous means helping bloggers from abundance.

Example

Retweet a top blogger and comment generously on their blog. Move on.

You impress top bloggers by helping without asking.

I sometimes promote successful bloggers but only because said bloggers reek success and generosity. Some blogger loves me, loves my blog and has success skills; I tend to mention them on my blog or via a guest post.

Getting traffic and profits becomes easy if you network skillfully with top bloggers. Blogging big dawgs introduce you to tribes and big time features exponentially increasing your blogging success.

Blogger networking is simple and quite easy. Focus on your success. Follow the above tips. Boost your self image. Level with top bloggers to better connect with these pros.

Blogging Is Not What You Are Doing But What You Are Being

Published

on

Phew!

Think this one through.

Blogging is what you are being. Not doing.

Blogging is not mindlessly doing stuff. Oh shoot. You realized something, didn’t you? Blogging is not building an email list. Email lists do not give you success. Nope. Clear, confident, detached bloggers who have fun building email lists and who trust in the blogging process grow big, responsive, profitable lists….over time. What does this mean?

“Over time” means you do not panic, flip out or bail on blogging, if you calmly build a list and have fun doing it, for a long time, and see the appearances of little or no growth. This is BEING a successful blogger; having fun, trusting, being patient, taking the simple, easy route, even if it feels uncomfortable after blogging and list building for a bit and seeing the illusion of scant results.

Most Bloggers Fail Because They Screw It Up

Most bloggers buy into a lie; doing specific things makes you successful. Nope. If this were the case, everybody who builds a list would be billionaires. Because they built a list, lists breed success, right? Nope. Even if you follow steps robotic-like, your energy, your emotions, your feelings, all make up your BEING. The 6 and 7 and 8 figure earners who happily take this journey are being the 6, 7 and 8 figure earners energetically, calm and confident, after having fun creating content and connecting, and seeing $4 in blogging profits after 6 months of being the person. Every other blogger panics after 1 day, 1 week or 1 month, stop being the millionaire success, do dumb stuff, begin being a broke person, and see struggle and failure until they decide to be the successful blogger again.

The Core Elements of Being a Success

Blog mainly:

  • for fun
  • taking the easy but uncomfortable path; do what feels natural to you, even when you slam into fear of wasting your time, fear of being criticized, fear of mental blocks, etc
  • with a complete trust in yourself
  • with a complete trust in the blogging process
  • with a complete trust in sound, proven advice from successful bloggers

Very few bloggers be these energies persistently. Very few bloggers happily earn a pretty penny over time. Few bloggers be success. Most bloggers try to do their way to success but since they act without giving any thought to their intent, their driver, their energy, almost all of these bloggers are being broke, poor, struggling and failing.

Blogging is not robotic. If blogging was robotic, every blogger who did specific things in a certain way would succeed. But this is not true. Blogging is energy. Top bloggers use all types of different approaches to reach the top. This indicates blogging is primarily energy, your energy coloring your actions and results.

Imagine if you feel like a failure. I advise you to write a guest post for me. You tell me you are lazy, have no ideas, cannot do it, need to take a few months off, etc. I offer you an opportunity to promote your success but since you are BEING a failure and feeling like a failure you are blind to the DOINGs (generous guest posting) of a successful blogger. See what I mean? Plus, if you seize the guest posting opportunity while feeling like a complete failure, either the post quality stinks or you write a masterpiece by the odd chance, that nobody reads. Nobody read it because you are feeling/being a failure, so, you see failure results.

100% of the time, blogging is energy. Being a success means blogging your fun, doing what feels easy and natural to you, trusting in self and the process, and feeling uncomfortable along the way.

Why Does Blogging Seem Hard?

Published

on

Aha!

The question of blogging questions.

Why does blogging seem hard?

Blogging in and of itself is not hard. Blogging is a concept. A blog is an inanimate object. It is neutral. It is not hard, tough or easy.

Human beings label their feelings with emotions. THIS is why blogging seems hard.

Why?

Doing the neutral activity of blogging feels scary, meaning you unearth and either resist or feel fears. Feeling the fears feels highly unpleasant. Especially if said fears feel deep, strong, and terrifying, depressing or anger-inducing.

But if you resist these deep fears, and refuse to feel them, and blog mainly from a dominant vibe of fear, you fully experience the feeling of blogging being super hard. Blogging is actually neutral but you refuse to feel deep fears that blogging has unearthed. You resisting fear leads to prolonged blogging failure, aka, not seeing much money and traffic, aka, blogging being really hard.

Real World Example

A few moments ago, I scanned one of my daily blogging income streams. I made a little less than I had been making for 1 of a billion reasons. 1 such reason may have been the internet crashing here last night. We experienced a few big, powerful thunderstorms.

Anyway, I noted the dollar amount being lower and felt fear arise in my body. Rather than resist the fear, I felt the anxiety, and my mind hurriedly racing ahead to next month’s paycheck, and then, after breathing deeply for a few moments and fully embracing the fear, I released it. I did not resist it. I felt it. The fear disappeared. I then blog from an abundant, relaxed, detached, generous energy, which helps me become more and more successful.

But the old me – and most bloggers – see a lesser dollar amount for daily earnings, feel an intense fear arise, panic, bury the fear versus feeling it, and run around like mad men and mad women with that DEEP FEAR DRIVING THEM, desperate and greedy, resisting the fear, being driven by fear, and of course, they do stupid stuff with a dominant fear energy guaranteeing their blogging failure. Then, these humans who refuse to face, embrace and feel fears, proclaim blogging to be hard. This is a lie. Blogging is neutral. But you refuse to face, embrace and release your fears, so blogging *feels* hard.

Solution

Feel fears when fears arise. Cry it out. Shout it out. Feel depressed or deflated.  Do not resist fear. Then, after feeling fears, you will feel good, detached, relaxed and trusting. Feeling these dominant abundant energies, you will create, connect, trust, persist and blog from a relaxed, chill energy. Blogging from this calm, trusting, generous energy makes blogging easier and easier and easier. Money flows in easy. Traffic flows in easy.

Blogging went from hard to easy because you faced fears, felt fears, and progressively blogged from an abundant, generous, calm, detached vibe.

Tip for Feeling Fear

Engage in some energy management ritual that expands your awareness. I do deep yin yoga and power walk daily. Prayer and/or meditation may help. Breathing deeply helps. Do anything that expands your awareness so you can observe and feel fear versus resisting this destructive energy.

Some humans bury fear with busy-ness and jobs they hate. Other people turn to drugs or alcohol to bury fears. All of these folks are unhappy and depressed because you cannot feel good, abundant, relaxed and successful with oodles of fear buried deep inside of you.

Be with your fears. Be gentle with yourself. The blogger who feels and releases fear soon learns blogging gets easier and easier.

Do You Need to Respond to ALL Comments?

Published

on

No.

One mistake holds back many bloggers who fail to scale. These folks obsess over responding to every single comment, every email, every message. Why? Pride. Obsession. Attachment to people. Fear of missing out on an opportunity. Fear of missing out on friendships.

Unfortunately, if you spend 14 hours daily responding to every single social request and chat and email and blog comment and message – even if it feels fun – you lose opportunities to scale through blog posts, guest posts, podcasts and doing interviews.

Please; if responding to virtually everything feels fun, do it. But 99% of bloggers BS themselves on this because they respond to EVERYONE from an energy of fear, pain, lack, resistance, force and hustle. Bad idea guys. Force negates. But, power attracts. Meaning if you are willing to use power, and love, and fun, to inject into your work, you quickly see: the cornerstone of massive scaling and persistent growth and freeing blogging success is writing, publishing and placing blog posts and guest posts.

Example

Today, how do I have most fun growing my business, reaching more people, helping more people, and leveraging my blogging presence? Do I achieve these feats by spending 3 hours responding individually to every retweet, Like, blog comment, and so on, and so on? Nope. I spend those 3 hours effectively and efficiently by writing and publishing 3-6 blog posts and guest posts. Blog posts and guest posts scale. Blog posts and guest posts help me reach hundreds to thousands of targeted folks through each blog post and guest post.

Blog posts and guest posts never seem to be written by people who complain about having no time to blog post, and, guest post. Meanwhile, a hefty chunk of these humans spend 1, 2 or 3 hours responding to every Like on Facebook, from a strained, forced energy, fearing they miss out on traffic and bonds, not having fun doing it. But the wise move would be spending 10 minutes responding to comments on Facebook and maybe a few Likes, then, devoting 2-3 hours to writing and publishing blog posts and guest posts.

Think Scale Not Small Time

WAY too many bloggers play small, giving most of their attention and energy to building 1 to 1 bonds. Making friends is important but meeting new friends is even more important.

One lesson I learned from millionaire bloggers: scaling through blog posts and guest posts is the quickest way to reach more people, make more money and increase your blog traffic. Building 1 to 1 bonds by engaging commentors plays a role in succeeding online, but the top bloggers on earth are not running around, spending endless hours responding to Likes on Facebook.

Titans scale.

Titans also build one to one bonds through engagement, but if you are not getting 1000 page views a day, something is wrong in the scaling department. Namely, you are playing it small, not thinking about scaling. Scale. Guest post. Post to your blog. Make this the focus of your day. Then, feel free to engage folks 1 to 1 in a limited time frame.

You need to let go responding to every single person all day long to genuinely scale, to reach an increasing number of folks and to do what matters most to your business.

People will buy your stuff without you engaging them. Guaranteed. Folks will find your blog, love your content and buy your course or eBooks. This is a simple, organic process that you muck up every time you believe you need to respond to and engage every single person who reaches out via all online channels.
