Posts Tagged ‘Blogging’

 

 

I admit that my first impression of blogging was that it would be a fun thing to do and who knows, maybe even profitable somewhere down the road.  So, typical of me, I jumped right in, joined a Blog Master Mind group and ran off into the blogging sunset.

 

It was addicting!  I loved it!!! It felt like I had a captive audience that would listen to my story.  I wrote about the things that had been meaningful in my life, the trials and tribulations of a 19 year old mother of two little boys.

 

I wrote about the honor of being with my sister when she died, then my dad, then my mom.  I wrote about my desire to coach people with the commitments they would make to move them into their vision.

 

I wrote about how I got rid of my ants.  I wrote about what was in my heart.

 

Then something happened.  I’m still not sure what it was but for some reason I stopped writing.  I think I scared myself.  I think I was going down a road of self revelation that I wasn’t quite ready for.

 

So I have some advice for you if you are someone that is considering taking up blogging.  Before you spend any money, go to http://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/, download and read Yaro’s Blog Profits Blueprint book from cover to cover.  Then open up your “Pages” if you have a Mac or MS Word if you are a PC user and start writing posts.  See how often each week you can write about the subject you would like to blog about.

 

If you find that it is easy to write 600 to 1500 words four or five times a week, then you may be a blogger.  If that is the case, proceed to Gideon Shalwick’s “www.becomeablogger.com and watch his 10 video tutorials.  He will show you exactly what you need to do to set up your WordPress.org blog site.

 

Here’s an issue though.  If like me, you have already created a blog site with WordPress.com, the video tutorials will come to a point that they differ with what you see on the screen because Gideon is showing you how to do it on WordPress.org.  WordPress.org is for people that want to manage, control, change and maintain their own site.  If you feel comfortable with this, great.  If not, you need Joel “The Blog Tech Guy”.  Joel is fast and reasonably priced for his technical support.  If you want to “do it all by yourself” and if you have the technical know-how to accomplish it quickly, go for it.  But if you are better at writing than doing the nit-pickey technical things, get Joel’s help.  He will take care of it for you for a small fee and you can keep doing what you are best at which is writing.

 

When you are certain that you are a blogger, and you are set to move forward, get in touch with Yaro and let him lead you through the in’s and out’s of blogging through his “Blog Master Mind” course.

 

My experience of these three men is that they are first of all, men of integrity.  They are honest and they will do every thing in their power to make sure that you have all the tools you need to launch yourself into greatness.

 

I am still finding my way through the forest and I really don’t know where it’s all going to take me but I do know that this particular road has three guiding lights and if you follow their light…you will be safe.

 

Thanks for listening.
