Guys, when I was first starting my blog, it was hell. You’ve got these mom bloggers that spew this drivel like “ooooh start a blog, it’s sooooo easy!!”… so long as you sign up with my Bluehost link to get your discount.
I mean, it’s like do you fuckers think we’re that dumb? We see you coming a mile away deceptive blogger… Our BS detector has been going off from the moment we see your face.
If that’s not bad enough, you’ve got the Fake It Till You Make It Bloggers, who barely made $2,500/mo from their blog before they started slinging $2,000 dollar courses to unsuspecting beginners. I mean come on… someone who’s never even gotten their feet wet, doesn’t need to spend THOUSANDS of dollars just to learn the basics for fuck sake.
Anyway, I could go on and on here, but my point is, when I was starting my blog, I couldn’t for the life of me find good reputable lifestyle bloggers to follow and learn from. I knew I needed to do things in my own way, but I was struggling to believe I could do it, deal with the fear I had for some reason, and all in all I just needed a little help seeing the big picture of how it would all work.
I can’t tell you how damn difficult it was to find people who could help me with this… let alone, all the core things that go into a profitable blog like: keyword research, on site optimization, the real way to make money with affiliate marketing, product creation, actually serving your market using your own life experience, and the best way for anyone to create successful blog content.
And that didn’t even touch on the strategy to use YouTube to supplement blog traffic when your blog is new that ended up working like gang busters! Again, all the same troubles… uncomfortable on camera, didn’t think I was good enough, wasn’t a good writer, didn’t think anyone would watch my videos, and blah blah blah.
Well, I’m here to tell you, the only thing stopping most people from having a successful blog, is the war going on with yourself. It was my greatest challenge, and even though it doesn’t seem like it, my most difficult hurdle. The truth is, there is no competition in the lifestyle blog space, except with yourself.
Everyone thinks that because someone else has done something similar before, that it’s too late for them. This is false, and I explained why in the relatability post, and how we can both do the exact same thing, and both be successful in our own way.
I could go on and on about this stuff, and it’s because I’ve lived it. For three years, all I did was eat, sleep, and shit blogging. My whole life revolved around figuring out how we can create successful lifestyle blogs that we can live off of. And I’ve done it myself, and now I see so much opportunity for everyone around me to do the same.
So now, the point of this post is to open the conversation with you.
I am building the baddest blogging course on the planet, but I want to make it even better for you by asking you for your input. Yep, you.
Every opinion counts, even if you’ve been blogging for two years and barely make $5k/mo from your blog, or you’ve never started a blog before.
In your own words, please comment below and let me know what you would like to see in the blogging course I’m building for you guys, and what would solve your biggest obstacle that’s stopping you.
The more you put into this, the better the tutorial will be that I’m going to make answering your question. My goal, is to help people who are where I was a couple of years ago, and there are ways to make it so much faster than when I was struggling starting my blog.
Let me know your thoughts right now below…
