What blogging questions do you ask? Clear questions designed to accelerate your success? Or unclear questions that do little to accelerate your blogging growth?
Be straight with yourself. Bloggers tend to ask questions that do not increase their blogging success. I just read a question about blogging in a specific voice, versus, asking about blogging aka writing in the most key voice: your voice. Writing in your voice helps you stand out from every blogger online. But you do not ask the right questions if you do not blog for the right reasons. Why do you blog? Blogging mainly for fun and freedom influences you to ask the right questions, to increase your blogging success. But if you blog mainly for money and/or popularity – the wrong reasons – you ask the wrong questions and get pulled off the successful blogging track. 100% of the time, it is on you. Asking the wrong questions reflects your outcomes-driven blogging intent. Being driven by outcomes – not the process – produces a muddled, lack of blogging clarity, and, silly questions, leading you down a silly path.
Do not believe the common adage; there are no silly-stupid questions. This is not true. Imagine if you ask someone to keep you updated on blogging issues? What does that even mean? What is a blogging issue? What does it mean to be updated on blogging issues? I do understand how non-native speakers ask questions with some lack of clarity – this is not stupid at all – but when you avoid doing research on asking clear, concise, simple questions in English, your lack of clarity confuses everybody involved. This question is not really silly and certainly not stupid but it does only lead to 2 or 3 more questions; not a good thing.
But then, I read another silly question a few moments ago. Someone asked about blogging on free platforms. What? Any blogger who blogs for the right reasons NEVER even considers blogging on a free platform because thousands of top bloggers have told you thousands of times that this is a mistake, an error, a huge problem, something you should never do. Blogging mainly for fun and freedom instantly goads you to buy your domain and hosting. Or at the very least, blogging for fun and freedom influences you to go to top bloggers for advice, top bloggers who tell you again and again to never, ever blog on a free platform. Guess what? Common sense dictates that if you want to blog successfully, you will buy your domain and hosting to do it right. The moment you even ponder going the free route, or ask about blogging on free platforms, you vibe the fear of losing aka spending aka investing money, which indicates you blog mainly for money and/or popularity, because you are vibing low.
Tony Robbins was not kidding; the quality of your life follows the quality of your questions. If you want to live a quality blogging life, ask quality blogging questions. Question the specifics of building a successful blogging career. Dive into details of driving blog traffic and making money effectively. Sure you can ask questions about driving traffic and profiting but drilling deeper into details shows you are blogging for the right reasons, because you are asking the right questions.
