Should You Aim for Blog Post Quality or Quantity?

Published

on

Both!

The human mind is silly. It thinks one or the other. It thinks you cannot have it all. You can have blog post quality and quantity but you need to make a clear decision on what you define to be a quality blog post.

Quality posts do not mean 2000 to 4000 word, pillar style masterpieces. A quality blog post answers the question you asked via title or delivers on the promise you made on the title.

I do understand how Google ranks 2000 word or longer, SEO-optimized posts requiring hours of work for even skilled bloggers to write, package and publish. But Google also ranks 600 words posts. 600 word posts are quality posts. Guess what? For the 30,000 bloggers out there asking the title question, I just wrote a quality blog post because they get a clear, concise, dead on answer.

Avoid Scarcity Thinking

Any time you FEAR posts are not quality because word length is 600 words, you think scarcity, or, not enough, or, not quality. But fear is not true. Fear is illusion. I can write 10, 600 word, quality posts today to make a massive impact and to help people IF I think abundance. But if I only believe I write quality, helpful posts in the 2000 word range, I stopped thinking abundance and began thinking scarcity.  I chose fear over love and abundance. Naturally, all bloggers who think scarcity either struggle, fail and quit or work like beasts just to make end’s meet. Not good.

Go for quantity and quality. Some posts may span 800 or 1000 words but you can answer most questions and solve most problems in 600 words if you have immense clarity. Seth Godin answers most questions in 100 to 300 words. You have so much more to work with. So…work with it!

Think abundance. Blog abundance.

Massive Exposure

I have referenced Gary Vee many times recently and his 2000 video interviews on YouTube. Before he landed world famous speaking gig he had a pure abundance mindset, doing videos left and right, offering quality insights on a high quantity of channels. Blogging fools would try desperately to land an interview on a TV show, pitching, fearing, worrying, striving, and wasting months of time, thinking scarcity. Gary thought abundance, seized every opportunity through interview requests from some entrepreneurs who registered zero views per video, gained massive exposure organically, and, the dude became famous through his abundance mindset.

He thought quality and quantity. He did not hold back.

I am beginning to gain massive exposure through the 5-10 guest posts and blog posts published under my name daily. I do not turn down a microphone. I also know the easiest way to become well known is to focus heavily on quantity and quality, to share the wealth.

Many bloggers would obsess over a quality post being 2000 words, SEO-optimized and all that jazz, spending 4 hours to write said post on blogging tips. Meanwhile, I just wrote and published 8 quality, 600 word posts during those hours. I am being seen helping people in 8 spots. While you are on the sidelines. Even if that SEO’ed out, 2000 word post gains massive traffic over the long term, via Google, I am gaining even more massive traffic, being in 8-10 places daily via my posts and guest posts.

Think exponential increase. Imagine my 10 guest posts building up over 365 days. That is 3,650 guest posts, 3,650 spots where I am spotted online. That is a lotta spots!

See why it pays to think quality and quantity?

What Is Your eBook Income Potential?

Published

on

Have you bought my exciting eBook?

From Overworked Security Guard to Balling in Bali: How I Did it

I help you retire to a life of travel through blogging by sharing my story. Buy it to live your dreams.

Let’s get right down to it guys. Your ebook income potential is whatever you put your mind to. Every cent you make in life begins in your consciousness. If you think and feel really really really rich, trust in the process and generously help people there is literally no limit to the amount of money you can make. Never base your income on someone else’s results because you have no idea what is in their mind and how they feel. This is a common new author mistake. They set the bar based on other people’s results. Bad idea. You never know what’s in another person’s mind so you never know what’s going into their income and you never know how brilliant YOU may be if you focus on yourself and never compare yourself to others.

Even if you see a super inspired person who lives their dreams, and they have pretty sweet results as far as ebook income, never base your potential on their results. They may make a ton of money every month in ebook sales but your journey may be to make a hundred times that amount of income. Never base Your Potential on somebody else’s results. Even if the person has knocked it out of the park as far as sales, you never want to base your life on someone else’s life.

Just look to inspired authors for inspiration. Never look at numbers on a screen. Sales are numbers on a screen. What do numbers mean? Nothing. What does money mean?. It is an illusion, a neutral means of exchange that doesn’t mean anything until your mind assigns some meaning to money.

If new authors ask me how much I make, they haven’t followed my blog for too long LOL. I never make income claims. This is because I would never want to cripple you and your potential. I am only human. Even if I made 2 billion dollars a month through ebooks, that’s still on the low side, because we are infinite beings capable of everything. Knowing this, I never want to hold back your potential and I never want you to base your life on my life because that would dishonor me and dishonor you too.

If you want to succeed as a new author, Follow Your Passion, trust in the process, genuinely help people, and keep making friends. Your sales increase as you help more people for free. It is that simple. That’s the recipe to my success. I never get caught up in sales and I barely check my metrics. I just have ten thousand more people to help today and that’s all that I know. This is how to live a movie worthy life, like I live, helping people all day long and having no concerns about sales or what you’re getting. When you get lost in the process with love, the money takes care of itself in a beautiful way.

Your ebook income earnings potential is unlimited. How is that for inspiration? That’s all you need to know. Me telling you about numbers will not inspire you because numbers are meaningless. Only serving human beings means the most. Being free means the most. Move away from goals and just carry an intent to live a free life through blogging and you will the happiest, healthiest and wealthiest you.

4 Common New Blogger Mistakes

Published

on

common new blogger mistakes

Common new blogger mistakes often cripple blogging careers before entrepreneurs can gain any momentum.

I made my fair share of newbie boo boo’s in the beginning. Be real with yourself. Be straight with yourself. Newbies often have oodles of blind spots to face, own and release, in order to become successful. Excited, but scared new bloggers cannot see themselves in the light of truth but being shown errors helps you travel a straighter, more narrow blogging path.

Common New Blogger Mistakes

Own these mistakes and make the appropriate corrections to accelerate your new blogger success.

1: Hesitating

I received a sponsored post from a blogger a few minutes ago. Unfortunately, I quoted him the price over 1 month ago. My price rose ten fold since that time; discount for some bloggers, for a short time. This common error cripples many new bloggers; hesitating. He should have written and submitted the sponsored post in 12-24 hours to lock in his price, to get featured on my blog and to grow his business. Waiting 33 days to submit a sponsored post is an eternity in the blogging world.

Act now. Stop hesitating. Nudge into discomfort. Do not hesitate if you receive an opportunity. Act on it immediately to do as pro bloggers do.

2: No Bond Building

New bloggers commonly try to do everything on their own. Write a blog post. Publish. Share on social media. Sit there. Wait. Repeat the cycle tomorrow. Quickly, new bloggers understand that if you network with nobody, you write for nobody.

Build friendships with top bloggers. Comment genuinely on blogs. Promote top bloggers through your blog and through social media. Make friends. Show an interest in bloggers; not in what they can do for you. Make friends with these pros to better connect with these individuals, and to influence them to promote your blogging success.

3: Not Learning from Pros

Buy my eBook:

8 Tips to Gain the Trust of Your Blogging Audience

I teach you how to gain the trust of your audience, a key step for new bloggers to take. But alas, most new bloggers choose not to learn from pros, instead, winging it on their own. This is a recipe for disaster because if you have no idea how to blog – and you do not – you will have a 100% failure rate. Example; most newbies are filled with fear and doubt, so their readers cannot trust them, because they do not trust themselves. My eBook helps you to trust yourself so you move into actions that gain reader trust. Buy the eBook, avoid struggles by gaining reader trust and cut your blogging learning curve.

4: Not Blogging

Not blogging is common among new bloggers. Newbies sit on the sidelines, waiting for the right moment. Now is the right moment. Here and now, you can dive into your blogging journey, diving into the game. Sit with fear. Feel it. We all fear. But just feel fear, then, blog, anyway. Feel the fear and do it anyway to become a successful blogger; hit the ground running.

Blog. Free yourself. Commit. Think about why you want to blog. Dwell on fun and freedom.

Embrace the Journey

Expect the unexpected. Waves of different emotions assault your mind as a newbie blogger. Preparing for emergencies simply unearths different emergencies, unearthing deep fears and conditioning you to expect the unexpected. Relax. Be gentle with yourself. Own these common new blogger errors from a compassionate energy to smooth your new blogger journey considerably.

I still make little mistakes here and there as an experienced, veteran blogger but I forgive myself for being human. Do the same thing but also own your errors to free yourself of these struggling, failing energies.

4 Common Blogger Time Wasters

Published

on

I wrote an eBook on how NOT to waste time online.

Buy it here:

How to NOT Waste Time Online

Full time employees, busy moms and college students working part time often find blogging difficult, for there seems to be no time to blog. But there is time to blog the split second you stop wasting time on these incessant things, for minutes or even hours daily.

1: Phones

I do not buy minutes for my phone. At times, my wife buys minutes when she….just chooses to. I am not a doctor; nobody will die if they do not contact me via phone. I can read a map. I can speak to people offline. My phone is a time waster so I rarely use it. Guess what? Some people believe I am an elite level blogger….and I do not use my phone, barring using it at home, with an internet connection. Doesn’t that suggest you can succeed in blogging even if you do not have a phone with minutes? Turn off your phone or trash it or delete minutes for a few weeks. Observe your fear-attachment to technology and being connected. Save 1, 2 or 10 hours of time of needless phone checking and chatting, over a month.

2: Email

Email. The ultimate time waster for most bloggers who check email 10 to 20 times daily or more. Unless you are a doctor or in emergency services, your blog is not a life and death business. Clients can wait. Really, they can. But most bloggers are so filled with fear, and too desperately attached to clients, that they check email 10 or 20 times daily, wasting time better spent writing a guest post or blog post. I check email 1-5 times daily. No more. My life reads like a movie because I am creating and connecting versus desperately checking my email, fearing loss.

3: Stat Checking

Oh my goodness; stat checking. Who signed up today? How many courses did I sell? How many eBooks did I sell? What are my metrics? Some bloggers check stats hourly. This is madness, because blogging is a year to year, not an hour to hour, endeavor. Nobody blogs well over an hour to hour basis, so why would you check stats hourly, or even, daily? I have blogged for 20,000 hours. AFTER 20,000 hours, some people believe I am one of the best bloggers on earth. Not because I stopped every hour to SEE IF I WAS DOING GOOD, DOING WELL. Successful blogging is like running a 26 mile marathon, enjoying the journey, and finishing. Failed blogging is like running a marathon and stopping every 200 feet to see if you finished, or, how you are doing. Insanity, and a huge time waster, too.

4: Perfectionism

You will never get it perfect. Sorry. So stop wasting time on your 45th draft and just publish the post. We will love it. I promise. Perfectionism robs joy, steals happiness and snatches freedom from every blogger. Be at peace with publishing content. Edit a bit, but go live. Go public. Stop wasting time trying to make something perfect or flawless because critics find fault with anything, and, fans see past your imperfections.

There you have it, guys. Make sure you buy my eBook on the way out.
