Don’t overthink your blogging strategy – you don’t have to be all in one package and chase perfectionism.
However, you must try your best and that’s your power of uniquness.
If you have gotten the energy to do blogging and want to become successful as soon as possible then let me help – FREE.
1. Goals are a necessity.
At least once a day, I think about the type of life I want, and then I set a monetary number that I would need to have that lifestyle. Back when I started, that number started at $33 a day, enough to cover my rent (I was living in Puerto Vallarta at the time, rent was cheap) Now, that number is over $1,000,000 a month. Every time I hit a goal, I raise the bar. I always make sure my goals are positive, and I repeat them as often as possible to stay focused.
2. It’s all about serving.
My 80/20 principle: I believe it’s 80% about serving and adding value, 20% about making money. This is my magic formula for making easy money blogging while feeling that warm tingle, knowing you are helping millions… and the latter becomes more fulfilling than the money. When you really understand what your readers want and need, everything becomes easy; quality content flows causing raving fans to increase… and they’re eager to buy or subscribe because they know your intentions are genuine and you would ONLY offer something that would truly serve them. This principle alone is without a doubt, the most important blogging strategy I could ever offer.
3. There’s always away.
One of the great things about blogging is that there really is always a way to make something work. Earlier today, I modified 3 WordPress plugins to make my blog do something after realizing there wasn’t already a plugin to do that. When I realized the plugin didn’t exist, I didn’t say, “oh, damn, there’s no plugin for that” and give up. I asked myself, “Ok, no plugin exists so how I can I make this work anyway?” WHEN you hit a roadblock, don’t stop and don’t turn, go right over the fricking thing! Get in the habit of asking the question; “How can I make this work anyway?” There is ALWAYS away.
These are just a few of the basic principles that have served me well. I have been asked to write a book covering this topic and believe me, I could write pages. So, until I have that “how to think like a successful blogger” book out, I recommend applying these principles to your own blogging strategies to get started. Feel free to let me know how they are working out for you and as usual, feel free to ask questions below- always happy to answer comments or email.
