The Wix website builder for thousands of people who have discovered this easy-to-use platform. People remark in the ads that they were able to build a website in one day or less, or even in just an hour. The easy to use drag-and-drop interface makes it much simpler for people to create their sites. But, many more things stand out about Wix.

For one thing, Wix makes the process of website building easy for anyone wanting to build a website. By using their predesigned templates and tools, you can create a site quickly and have it up online in no time at all. Wix takes the approach that people want high quality and great features on their website, even if they don’t have a clue on how to code or to tap into a highly technical tool. In fact, Wix has included all of those specialty tools at the backend, so all you have to do is use their easy editor to utilize these features. Imagine that!
One way Wix creates a platform that will allow you to get your website up and running so fast is their professional template collection. They have included templates from almost every industry imaginable. Take a look at some of their web templates here.
You’ll notice when browsing through the templates that each style has a unique personality and look. This is because each industry it represents has a unique look as well. Look at the car industry template for example.
When visitors first come to the page, they immediately see a car in the middle of the page, so there is no doubt what the website is about. It also features the logo and brand name right in the middle of the page, as well. The visual effects, coupled with the attractive car garage background let people know what the brand is about at first look. This is important, especially for people on mobile devices that you may only have a few seconds to win over!
Check out the navigation of this module, as well. It is located at the very top. It is simple and straightforward but attractive. The lettering and background color nicely match the rest of the theme.
This is just one example of the type of themes you’ll find with the predesigned templates Wix offers users, and it is one way that Wix makes site-building easy for anyone.
Another big point for Wix is the way the editor allows for easy drag-and-drop of elements. You can drag and drop practically any type of elements such as pictures, text boxes, videos, podcasts, or any other element you want to add.
This is one of the favorite features of Wix users because it takes the guesswork out of creating a site by allowing you to put whatever you want on your site with minimal trouble. It also allows for flexibility by allowing you to add additional code such as HTML blocks of text to spruce up your site.
Follow their online tutorial to learn the steps you’ll take to create your site on Wix to get started brainstorming how you want your page to look.
More Features that Make Things Easy
In addition to the many features that make things easy with Wix, there are also some advanced features that would be hard to do if you did not utilize the Wix platform.
1. Wix Video -This feature is exclusive to the Wix platform and allows you to use advanced features such as adding clickable action cards to your videos that you place on your page via the drag-and-drop functionality. You can also incorporate your social media buttons or other items that you want to use to complement your video content for maximum results.
2. Wix Bookings – This feature is a perk you don’t find on too many website platforms. It’s a tool designed to let you allow your customers to make appointments using this tool right on your site. Ordinarily, you would have to pay another application up to $35 a month or more to have this feature added to your site. You might have to code it from scratch, as well or pay a programmer to do this. Wix saves you both time and money by offering this handy tool that allows you to schedule your customers right on your site with minimal fuss.
3. Wix SEO Wiz – The SEO Wiz is a feature that makes Wix well worth looking into just by itself. That’s because SEO remains an essential part of creating and maintaining a successful website. Knowing how to use the best SEO keywords that will increase your traffic while increasing your impact on the search engines is paramount. Wix makes this easier also so that anyone can create highly impactful websites with the required amount of SEO without having to be an SEO genius.
Check it out yourself
The key to building a great website is to focus on your content first. Think about what you want your site to do for you. Remember that the design is just what people see and it affects how people will be able to utilize your site.
Providing people access to the content is the key and the goal of great design. Ordinarily, you would have to hire a design expert, pay them thousands of dollars for extra coding, or get professional help with every aspect of the design. But Wix allows the everyday user with little knowledge of coding, dynamic or HTML 5 languages, and other aspects to put a page together quickly and easily.
The above are just some of the best features we like about the Wix platform that make site-building easy for anyone. To get a feel for how it can help you build your website, check it out for yourself.
Blogging Is Not What You Are Doing But What You Are Being

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
- 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?

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.
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.
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?
Related blog posts and resources:
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.
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 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.
