Why Being Closed-Minded Hurts Your Blogging Career

I enjoy scanning my travel photos and travel videos from time to time. I recently watched a video I recorded from September 2020 in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. While walking through this vast wilderness of 6 million square acres – 1/5th the size of England – I noted something odd. Someone strong snapped a 30-foot tree at its base and placed the tree teepee style against another tree, the base being positioned in the middle of the trail.

Wise bloggers nudge their ego to the side, humble themselves and ask for help. Ask for blogging help if struggles arise. Be open. Why

Handing out some form of blogging help without begging for anything in return expresses a genuine interest in a fellow human being. How radical – and attractive – does this approach seem in a world of bloggers who want to squeeze something out of someone via every interaction?

Blogging: One Size Does Not Fit All

I do things quite differently than most bloggers in some regards. Selling my eBooks and courses through lesser known platforms like Gumroad and Payhip moves me away from the blogging crowd of Amazon self-published authors. Focusing heavily on building relationships with bloggers and rarely on list-building deviates from the blogging norm. Of course, I blog similarly to many pros in terms of fundamentals. I create detailed content and build strong connections with readers. Most thriving bloggers walk this path as

1 Stark Analogy for Trying to Blog Solo

I woke up to a potentially stunning view one day during a trip to Turkey. Majestic, snow-capped mountains spoiled me in the distance. But one morning I decided to capture a photograph through the screen window in my bedroom. I simply could not focus. The image appeared to be blurry. Why? Each little rectangle of the screen chopped up the photo. Each little seeming square rendered the gorgeous image behind the screen to a fairly difficult to perceive blob. What

Do You Really Care about Your Blogging Audience?

I read a blog post recently. The blogger noted a long-defunct website as link anchor text. I double-checked the blog post publish date of February 2022. Human beings make mistakes. But imagine writing and publishing a blog post in February of 2022 containing link anchor text touting a famous website that closed down years ago? Even though the blog owner may have had a contributor publish the blog post, they are fully responsible for the blog, the blog content, and
