Blogging is a fun, freeing journey.
But how do you enjoy a successful blogging ride?
I share 2 key components to blogging success below but also suggest you renew your mind. Most people learn that life is about working a job to pay bills. Blogging is a different gig; passionately serving people like a smart entrepreneur is the key to succeeding in this gig, and the money does not arrive for a while. Changing your mindset feels uncomfortable at first but making the shift liberates you from failing, unpleasant-feeling, limiting blogging beliefs.
I have blogged for 10 years as I circled the globe. No way I live this dream life unless I followed each of these tips diligently, patiently and persistently. Blogging is not getting rich quick but blogging is generous service, trust and acquiring wealth slowly, patiently and persistently. Money comes but only after you do the right things with the right energy for a sustained period of time.
Blogging gives you what you give blogging. Have you ever thought of it that way? I recall spending 2 weeks in Muhamma, India, in 2013. I learned of a guy named American Joe. He had a massive mansion by the rice paddies there. Why? He generously built a successful, thriving company in the USA. All the money, his mansion and his life of freedom unfolded because he gave freely of his time, talents and energy for many years of his life.
Get, by giving. Sear that idea onto your mind to become a successful blogger.
Be Passionate [2 Key Components To Blogging Success.]
Passion genuinely makes everything go.
Passionate bloggers fuel themselves for a long, rewarding but sometimes challenging blogging journey. Being passionate inspires you to learn how to blog from pros, to practice writing, to publish helpful content and to befriend fellow bloggers genuinely. Loving blogging and blogging mainly for fun gives you a sense of detachment, relaxation and calm about your blogging campaign.
Patience, persistence and consistency all flow from fun-loving bloggers. Passionate bloggers think in terms of years, not hours, days or weeks. What’s the rush, anyway? Good things take time and generous service. Why not enjoy the ride? Since you will be blogging for a bit, love the journey, relax and be patient as you reach your dreams through blogging.
Develop a vision of your dream blogging life. See yourself living your dreams to stoke your fiery passion for blogging. Visualize yourself helping people. Buy eBooks to energize yourself, like this one.
Do not blog mainly for money or fame. Money, popularity and any outcomes-based driver pull you down the wrong blogging path. Impatience stricken bloggers focused on money. Greed deludes you into rushing the blogging process. Trust goes out of the window. Failure follows. Money-hungry, fame-seeking bloggers quit because money, fame and worldly success only flow to skilled bloggers with significant exposure and rock-solid credibility, all qualities only attained by passionate bloggers.
Develop Prospering Business Sense.[2 Key Components To Blogging Success.]
Develop a prospering business sense to make money blogging. Being passionate gives you the energy to be generous, patient, persistent and trusting but being a business person who blogs allows money to find you. Naturally, this is a sore point with most bloggers. Look around; spamming, offering valued services for $5 and refusing to monetize all signal a general lack of business sense.
Think like an entrepreneur who blogs. Be generous with yourself by charging premium prices for your products and services. Open multiple streams of income. Promote yourself freely. Be about your blogging business by monetizing with comfort, clarity and confidence. Bloggers need to be business people first before making money online because profits flow to bloggers with a prospering, abundant business sense.
Build bonds, share value and monetize freely to become a successful blogger.
Be a passionate, business-smart blogger.
