For this post, I would like to use the blog Geekologie as an example. When this guy (who remains anonymous for unknown reasons) writes a post, it’s very clear to everyone reading it who the author is. Some blogs suffer from the disease that I like to call “forgettable authors.”
The worst thing you can do as a visionary and a blogger is limit yourself. The biggest rewards come from the biggest ideas, and the biggest ideas aren’t always easy to implement. I’ll give you a rule of thumb: if it’s easy to do, it’s not a big enough idea to take you to the place that you want to go: internet stardom.
Blogs can really get a lot of steam behind them if their social media platforms are thriving with engaged users ready to share and comment on content.
There’s really no “best” social media site, as the response that you get from different initiatives really depends on the ways in which readers consume your information. (Niche can also play a big role in which social sites drive traffic to your site.)
Yes, the words “stop writing posts” are in the title, and they mean exactly what you think they mean.
I see bloggers who work hard all day long churning out posts, and then don’t get the results that they’re looking for.
Do you remember all those articles you read over the years?
The ones telling you to “build an email list?”
Most of you haven’t taken them seriously, and would rather garner some organic traffic by doing keyword research than spending a bunch of time creating an opt-in form.
You’re probably thinking one of two things. One: he’s not trying to make money off of his site. Two: he’s incredibly stupid. I can assure you that I am interested in making money off of my blog, and I am fairly sure that I am not incredibly stupid, though I don’t know how well someone can judge themselves in that department.
Many bloggers, when they think of a logo, it’s an afterthought. I know that I personally told myself that once my blog makes it big, then I’ll get a logo. Or once my email subscribers number gets to 1,000 , I’ll have a logo designed.
Bloggers are always screaming that unless you have great content, nobody will care about your site. This is very true, but most bloggers miss the point of content. Sure, it’s nice to write things that help or entertain people, but your articles probably aren’t doing either of those things right now. And if they are, they’re not doing it at their full potential.
