Please share about yourself and your story to enter in blogging?I never really knew what I wanted to do for a career. I went to college three times for completely different career paths, and none of them really satisfied me.
I had just quit a job I didn't like (again), and I was looking for a job online where I could write. Writing had been a passion of mine since I was young. In fact, in my teens, I started and stopped more stories than I could count. I knew that there was something like data entry online, so I was searching for an online job where I could do that.
I honestly didn't know about blogging, but when I found a website that talked about blogging and the opportunities of running an online business, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Not only did it involve writing, but it involved helping other people become happier and more fulfilled in life, and that was something that I felt passionate about.
I learned all I could about blogging, set up my first blog based around relationships, and started writing down what I knew. It was the first 'job' I really enjoyed.
I found an added benefit of blogging too - I had to do research for my articles, and the more research I did, the more I learned about relationships and how to be happy in them. I loved the fact that I was getting an education without the hefty price tag that I had previously paid!
How the idea to make your own blog came in your mind? How you found the right people to develop it and what big obstacles you faced?A relationship blog was a no-brainer for me. I had been through many relationships in my life, and I had learned valuable lessons from each one of them. I had finally found a healthy relationship, so I knew what happiness really felt like, and I wanted to help other people experience that happiness in their relationships.
I followed current bloggers and practiced the techniques and tips that they taught. I had no problem developing a concept around the blog, or deciding exactly what I wanted to talk about. All of that I came up with on my own.
At that time, it was much easier to get ranked in the search engines, so I didn't have a hard time getting organic traffic to my blogs. I simply followed the advice of popular blogs focused on blogging, and I found a little bit of success with Google. I started promoting products that aligned with what I was talking about, and I seemed to have no problem making sales. Everything was going along pretty good, and I was starting blogs in other niches as well.
Then one day my blog dropped out of Google. Well, not out, but it dropped off the first page. Suddenly traffic and sales were down. Way down.
That was my biggest obstacle in the beginning. I quickly learned that I needed to depend on more than just organic traffic for blogging success. I needed to build an audience, get social, and connect with other bloggers.
Can blogging really change someone`s life?Absolutely!
For starters, as a blogger, there is unlimited financial opportunity. Passive income and active income are a real thing, and the more you work and develop your blogs and products, the more money you make.
But it goes beyond income. I've been writing about personal development and healthy relationships for so long that I have naturally evolved into a happier person. It was kind of unavoidable as I learned more about how to be happy and how to live an authentic life.
Because of blogging:
- I have better relationships
- I understand who I am and where I want to go
- I am kinder, more compassionate, and more loving
- I no longer spend the majority of my time complaining and, instead, spend it feeling happy about life and work
So, yeah - blogging can absolutely change someone's life.
What are your favorite Internet marketing tools?
What is your daily schedule? and how do you maintain your tasks?
Now, I make my daily schedule up as I go. I wake up, get on Simpleology, make a to-do list for the day based on what I feel needs to get done, and I'm off to the races.
Blogging have different definition for different person. What is it for you?For me, the ability to blog everyday means sharing my insights, lessons, and knowledge with the world, and getting paid to do it.
Blogging is all about spreading positive ideas, making people's lives better, promoting new thoughts and ideas to others, and making the world a better place.
Blogging also gives me a chance to grow as a person and increase my knowledge, because I do a lot of research for many of the posts that I create. In essence, it is a form of education geared towards what I want to learn and what I think would benefit my readers.
Which are your favorite blogs?
I also like Social Triggers. Derek Halpern is an interesting guy with a lot of interesting ideas on how to build a great blog and get customers to respect you and buy from you.
How much time do you spend on social media promotion and SEO of your blog?Probably not as much as I should (around 20-30 percent of my day), but I'm starting to change that around now.
I've realized that social media is essential to getting real and interested traffic to your blog. Moreover, building relationships with people, and getting reputable links to your site, is equally important.
How much time do you spend for blogging daily?
Message for Readers:If you have a passion, and you want to share it with the world, blogging is a great way to do it. Not only can you earn a lot of money, but you can influence the world in a positive way, develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you, and come across many people who will inspire you to be the best version of yourself possible.
