Blog 99.99% for passion, fun, joy, service, generosity and peace of mind.
Blog 0.01% for money.
Focus heavily on this core idea to become a successful blogger. Every happy, successful blogger I follow blogs almost entirely for the fun of blogging to be generous, patient, persistent, detached and trusting. Cultivating these energies allows you to work for thousands upon thousands of hours as the money and traffic builds slowly and steadily to full time levels. If the work feels like the reward, you keep blogging until you become a professional blogger. This is why the 1 thing you need to focus on is blogging virtually entirely for passion, joy, fun, service, generosity and peace of mind. You will never quit. Discouragement becomes temporary, or, non-existent, because you are not tied to some outcome that could discourage you.
Why Most Bloggers Fail
Most bloggers fail because, right now, these failing bloggers could care less about passion and just want to ask me the question:
“What ONE thing can I DO to MAKE MONEY?!”
My answer: “Walk into McDonald’s and get a job. McDonald’s is always hiring.”
The only way in life to do ONE thing that ensures you make money is to work a job for a salaried paycheck. This is the world of a virtual guarantee; work for someone as an employer to get paid every Thursday. Blogging is the complete opposite of working a job. There is no one thing you can do to succeed because everything is equally important and it takes generous service and time to make money. Imagine if you just created content for 10 years and did nothing else. Nobody would read your blog because you refused to network, and few folks follow or trust a self-centered blogger with no friends. Imagine if you spent 10 years networking but never created content. You would have tons of friends who would visit your blog, see nothing, and leave immediately.
The only way to guarantee your blogging success is to blog for love, fun and freedom, because blogging for these reasons cultivates the generosity, persistence, patience and trust that leads to immense worldly success over years of your life. THIS is the one thing to focus on, to build a successful blog.
Blogging is energy. Be successful by accepting how blogging is first and foremost an energy game. I have seen 7 figure earners explain how they would be blogging for 15 years even if they did not make a dime through blogging. You cannot fake that level of authenticity, and the reason why blogging millionaires are so rare is because that level of authenticity is so rare. Be like these pros. Blog mainly, almost exclusively, for passion and fun. THEN, and only then, do you take steps from a generous energy to build a successful blog.
Creating content and building strong connections is pretty easy for someone who blogs mainly for their passion. Creating content and building strong connections is really hard for someone who blogs mainly to make money. Everybody who struggles blogs mainly for money. Everybody who succeeds blogs mainly for passion. This truth rings loud and clear virtually 100% of the time. As for practical tips, you do not focus on 1 thing, but many things. Creating and connecting and monetizing are equally important parts of the blogging puzzle but you need to be passionate and fun-filled, blogging for joy, to follow successful, practical blogging strategies persistently.
