blogging tips , blogging from paradise books on amazon
Life is good. Kelli and I have been in Bali for over 3 and a half months. Feels like a blur. We got married in New Jersey in January and 2 weeks later we were on a jet, flying halfway across the world.
It was during that flight that I chose to become a real eBook publishing machine. I had published 10 eBooks in 4 months in 2014 but I really put things into overdrive when I landed in Bali. A short while after we were chilling, villa-style, I decided to publish 1 eBook weekly.
I felt that if I could free myself by blasting through a bunch of publishing blocks than I could free a bunch of you, too.
Big time plug alert.
I have been SO busy writing and publishing.
Now it’s time for shameless self promoting.
How this Post – and these Books – Benefit You
Don’t worry though; my promoting benefits you. Because for less than a big old cup of coffee you can:
- learn the secrets of someone who’s retired to a life of island hopping through smart blogging
- get a LOL look at some funny travel stories
- figure out how to make money blogging
- learn how to become an influential blogger in 6 months or less
- become worry-free while experiencing blogging difficulties
….and yes, you’ll gobble up about 101 more benefits – being conservative here – by buying 1 or 10 or 20 Blogging from Paradise eBooks today.
I am excited. I have hit the quarter century mark. Depending on when this post goes live who the heck knows how many books I’ll have published on Amazon.
Rather than link you up to the library – OK of course I’ll do that anyway – I wanted to break down each eBook in a few words.
Again, I have priced my books at $2.99 so as many folks as possible can download them, can benefit from them, can review them, and can live their dreams.
I want low barriers to entry guys. I know as a newbie that you may be doing the bootstrapping thing. I have been there.
I don’t want to burden you with high priced products. Basically, my dream is to free millions of people as I free myself. That was the plan when I created Blogging from Paradise: I am free, and I want to take you with me.
Only the criminally insane or brain dead would deem $2.99 as expensive. If you are in either crowd….how in the hell did you access, and read, Blogging from Paradise? Now THERE’S another eBook idea for me…..
More Benefits of Blogging from Paradise eBooks and Paperbacks
- quick, easy to understand, light, entertaining reads
- I use like zero blogging lingo; hate the stuff
- These books are FAR from dry; you’ll be enchanted by tales of ding dongs in Bali, or of coke heads in Cusco….ain’t gonna find that in your average blogging tips book
- eBooks are available on Amazon Kindle, and many are free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers
- I cover a wide range of topics related to Blogging from Paradise; this means, if you’re having some issue related to blogging I probably have covered it and likely have the eBook for you
Buy and Bookmark
Here’s my philosophy; buy and bookmark. Buy eBooks, bookmark, or save for later, go about your life and consume as you take out bite-sized chunks. Or, buy and read immediately. Whatever floats your boat.
The $2.99 Deal
I want to free as many folks as possible. Every person reading this blog, unless you’re in some type of hellish financial situation, with like virtually nothing to your name, you can visit Amazon, click a button and download my Amazon Kindle Blogging from Paradise eBooks, in about 3 seconds. Without thinking twice.
Because save the paperbacks and deluxe packages, each eBook costs $2.99. I know you have likely spent $2.99 on coffee, sweet treats, maybe a side at some restaurant, or whatever.
But….spending $2.99 to get inside the head of a guy who’s:
- lived in Thailand for over 20 months
- visited Bali 5 times
- lived in Fiji for 4 months
- traveled the world as a full time, professional blogger for over 4 years
- been endorsed by celebrities
- spoke at NYU about blogging (how many bloggers do you know who spoke at NYU?)
- a real fun-loving, nice, swell guy, a good kid, and not half bad looking, either
…..yeah, like I said, paying $2.99 to get this guy’s secrets is freaking bananas.
Guys, I share EXACTLY what I did to get here and EXACTLY what other island hopping, full time blogging pro, digital nomads are doing, to replicate my success.
These tips are practical. The tips are easy to understand. Even more than these things, the tips are predicated on finding the right driver, the intent, the motivator, that’ll push you through thick and thin, that’ll drive you to do what few people on earth do.
You’ll live your dreams. You’ll be free.
Order a book today. Buy an eBook. Enjoy my stories. Soak up my practical tips. Use a framework to engineer your most freeing, inspired lifestyle.
OK….on to the books.
Note: post a review after you read a few of these eBooks. Offer your feedback. If you enjoyed reading the books, let the Amazon community know about it. Referral marketing does wonders for sales, let me tell ya.
Guys, Before we Continue….
I was a broke joke bum 7 years ago.
Then, I struggled for a minute, falling flat on my face for years with failed online ventures.
Then, I generated a full time income but hadn’t authored a book yet, and was totally clueless as to how the process worked.
Then, I started publishing eBooks to Amazon Kindle, and….I haven’t looked back.
Before you excuse yourself, or make excuses, about publishing eBooks, or, about running a full time income earning blog, excusing away why you aren’t a pro blogger, or why you haven’t retired to the tropics yet……well, know that your excuses only bind you.
They NEVER free you.
Take it from a guy who’s had to slay a few excuses, to get where I am today.
Just had to squeeze that one in there…..because I’m seeing way too many limiting beliefs being shared in the blogging world.
Oh yes, if you wanted to open a passive income stream become a Blogging from Paradise Amazon affiliate.
OK, that was a false start a few lines ago…NOW….we’re on to the books.
If you are having a helluva time committing to your goals, well, this book can help you be ALL IN.
I wrote it after people asked me questions like:
- do you have a doppelganger?
- Do you sleep?
- How can you be in 43 places at once?
- What do you take?
- What makes you tick?
Well, this book answers those questions. I delve into what makes me tick, how I am all in, all of the time, and how you too can be all in, all of the time, to reach your goals and to make your dreams come true.
Great read for someone hungry to take their game to the next level.
How do you make money blogging?
Yeah….I get asked this question….sometimes.
Joking….I get asked this question….hourly.
Kidding….I get asked this question….every 7 minutes.
Now being serious here….I get asked the “How do you make a full time income blogging?” only about 250 times a year. So not much.
Of course you’re here to retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging. Or you want to build a full time income earning blog. So I published this book. It’s chock full of practical tips to help you become a full time, pro blogger. Toss in a funny travel story or 2, and you have a fun, quick, easy and powerful read.
I had to go there.
I was featured on 100 plus blogs in a ridiculously short period of time.
I was tweet endorsed by:
- Chris Brogan
- Nicky Woods
I was endorsed by luminaries such as:
- Yaro Starak
- Dino Dogan
- Adrienne Smith
- Don Purdum
I felt like, hey; I should help bloggers get some serious, serious burn, to inspire them to be all over the place, making a serious impact wherever they showed up – important note, guys – and in response to that thought, I published this eBook.
I feel the cover is cutesy too; little old RB with a Bali t-shirt at the villa, by the pool, big pimping, in….you guessed it….Bali.
So I wrote this book. For you.
I was attacked by a Nepali wild man. Near death in India. Road pizza in Bali.
And in each experience, I decided to extract a blogging lesson from the madness.
I didn’t do so in the moment; kinda trying to stay alive, thank you. But in time, I saw the lessons come together to benefit you. My wildest travel experiences are entertaining, enlightening and yes, each experience offers you smart blogging lessons.
This read’s a great one for travel bloggers in particular; it could create that storytelling spark lifting you up into the travel blogging stratosphere.
I don’t speak much about my empire.
I do comment about my empire quite a bit though. Badda boom, badda bing….we’ll be here all week folks! Blog commenting is my preferred method of marketing, blogging-wise.
I published this eBook to make bloggers aware of this underutilized blog marketing strategy. Soak up tons of helpful blog commenting tips. Learn what blog commenting No-No’s to avoid. Learn how to get paid for offering your opinion. Indirectly, at least.
My famous endorsements and speaking engagements were rooted in blog commenting. Funny, how sharing your thoughts for free as blog comments opens doors that other marketing methods just can’t….open.
My first 5 eBooks, packaged together, with a nice little discount placed, to whet your Blogging from Paradise appetite. Bon appetit!
From seeing Bali boobies to devastating ding dong sightings to about 101 other experiences I’ve had in Bali I was able to extract 10 distinct blogging lessons, for you, and for your benefit.
I wrote and published this one here in Jimbaran because it seemed like a fun way for my readers to uncover practical, usable tips through analogies.
Storytelling is on the come up, blogging-wise, and I just wanted to do my part to get your blogging bum in gear.
A few bloggers implored me to publish this eBook.
So I did.
Note; if you too have eBook requests, make ’em in the blog comments section below. If said eBook is in my wheelhouse you betcha bummy I’ll write and publish it, sooner versus later.
Anyway, Kelli noted a few times how I offer the ultimate change up to traditional blogging advice. I do the practical tips bit for sure but also set the table, mentally, for struggling and even successful bloggers.
This eBook explains how to think, feel and act like a successful blogger. I share tips for achieving this Holy Trinity of Blogging, like a blogging boss, to accelerate your online success.
This is book Number One, Numero Uno, the flagship book in the Blogging from Paradise series. Minstrels have dedicated songs to this one. Celebrity endorsers have shouted me out on the regular. It’s a fun, fast-paced, easy read explaining how I retired to a life of island hopping through smart blogging and how you can do it too.
I share stories from my pre-Blogging from Paradise days as well as some neat anecdotes from the road. You’ll love it, if you are ready to retire to the tropics. Or, if you just want to retire to become a pro blogger.
The sequel to my first eBook. I like talk about how to retire to a life of island hopping, more.
At the time, this seemed like a monumental task. Bloggers and readers did DNA tests on me, figuring out how and where my Ryan Biddulph twin was, and how he wrote and published books so damn quickly too.
After failed DNA tests – thanks Maury – it was concluded that I am one person, who can churn out books at a sick pace.
These days, this title seems like child’s play. I publish eBooks weekly. I have just published 16 in under a 4 month stretch, putting out 2 per week during a particularly hectic, inspired stage of this aggressive run.
Either way though, it’s a fun, easy, quick read that’s super helpful for aspiring authors, or for that author who needs just that little bit of an extra push to get their book out there, for the public to consume.
Newbies, where ya at!?
I was once a delicate, frightened newbie. Much less ballsy. OK, I was pretty much castrated, blogging-wise, during those early, tender days. Think of the difference between James Earl Jones and a member of the Vienna Boy’s Choir. Yep, my blogging voice now carries a bit more gravitas compared to my newbie days.
I tackled 10 wicked blogging mistakes handcuffing new bloggers and of course I offer you solutions to each.
Combo series of my first 2 books. At a discount. Nuff said.
Since I released more than a few of these eBook thingees I decided to put out the eBook explaining how you can do it, too.
Bloggers, aspiring island hoppers and everybody in between; you’ll need a neat little framework to create and publish successful eBooks. From the meat of your eBook, the content, to the nuts and bolts of your offering, you’ll need to have both the creative and formatting aspects of your eBook down pat to launch a successful read.
So…..I published this eBook.
I am sitting in a peaceful environment now. Chilling in the hills of Jimbaran, Bali.
I am listening to:
- tropical bird’s peeps
- roosters crowing
- palm leaves fluttering in the breeze
- not much else
Since I am living in a MOST of the time peaceful environment I wanted to share 25 tips for you to develop peace in your life.
Here’s my little secret; I followed these tips before I moved to Bali. I brought peace with me through all types of hectic situations, back when I was transitioning from security guard, to entrepreneur, and during my early blogging days. Peace finds the person who brings peace with them, through chaos, through hectic situations, and through moments when you’re just begging you to gouge your eyes out with broaches.
OK, bizarre, Oedipus tangent here, but you get my drift.
If you are living in a frenzied, hurried state, buy the book.
How in the HELL do I do, so much, in so little time?
Another question I was asked, more than 3 times – a lot more than that – leading to an eBook. I am telling ya kiddies, ask me the question, and there’s a shot the eBook is coming next. I have almost 30 in the chamber now; weaponry being added daily.
SO…..I published this book for busy bloggers because I know:
- mommy bloggers
- moms, who are bloggers
- moms, who aren’t bloggers, but could use some time-saving tips
- 9-5 office workers
- non 9-5 but full time job guys and gals
- student bloggers
- full time, pro bloggers
- any blogger
….well, I know you folks are busy as hell. Preaching to the choir. SO….I decided to share 10 of my tips, with you, that I use to save myself boat loads of time so I can publish an eBook weekly, along with this type of 5,000 word post, along with all the business-building stuff I am doing.
It’s a fun, practical read, perfect for any time-strapped blogger.
How am I all over the place?
I am a deity.
I am the Thanos of Blogging.
The Mad Titan.
Because of this, I sometimes feign to be a human, here in Bali.
I tell the local folks that I have some human tendencies, like, I am lazy, undisciplined, sluggish, and all that good stuff. Just to be human. So I don’t scare off my readers.
Of course, the local Balinese in my ‘hood shoot me vacant, blank stares, because they Bahasa Indonesia, and tidak Bahasa Indonesia, bahasa Ingress.
SO…..for the human bloggers in the audience, I decided to share practical, proven, dead on tips for being a networking machine.
I nailed down awesome endorsements and have a whole slew of folks who greedily promote my content because I made a bunch of blogging buddies….through being a networking machine.
I spill da beans in this eBook.
The title says it all. Just buy it. Because if you find a similar book, anywhere, with this specific analogy, well, I’m hornswaggled.
Ditto the eBook version. This is the paperback. Perfect reading for a day at the beach. You have ample space on both the side and lower section of pages for taking study notes. More of a workbook than a paperback, I’d say.
It’s one thing to network like a boss, and yet another thing to make your blogger outreach campaign sizzle.
Some guys are solid networkers but have a thing or 2 to learn in all matters blogging outreach. Like, learning how to blog comment intelligently, and learning how to share people’s posts on different social networks and learning the ins and outs of using email to build blogger bonds, those are skills which must be acquired, and practiced, and used, for you to become a popular, connected, full time income earning blogger.
Buy this eBook if you are disgusted with blogging for an audience of crickets.
I’ve been down that road. I know how it feels. I also know how it feels to be a guy who knows a thing or 2 about blogger outreach.
Ditto what I said for the eBook version, except this is the paperback version.
Ditto, the blog commenting book.
Ditto, ditto, ditto. Except this is a neat workbook versus the Kindle version.
I have seen many a spectacular place.
Now I want to take you along for the ride.
I recount 23 of the most spectacular places I’ve visited on earth.
If you love recounts of paradise, you’re gonna love this one.
Do I even need to explain why you should buy this one??? Oh wait a second…..it’s FREE!
Struggling digital nomads are looking for a guide, to put the 9-5 or offline freelance thing behind, and the trips home to make money, and they want to move forward as full time, free digital nomads.
Here’s the guide for you.
I Admit it; I’ve Been Greedy
I’ve been a greedy sonofabitch.
No, I’ve not been stuffing my square-jawed mug with sweet pandan cream rolls all day long in Bali. I haven’t been hoarding much of anything. Really.
I have been far from stingy with my talents. 1 eBook weekly is a fair amount of creating, methinks.
I have been a bit greedy with my time so I’ve not been promoting these books as much.
That’s OK. I am human. I have a life. I have 24 hours a day, like you do….so naturally, even though I follow James Altucher’s advice; “The best way to promote a book is to write the next book,” and I have taken that advice to insane levels I intend to start promoting these bad boys aggressively on all of my social networks.
I have been thinking: me write, me publish, me move on to the next book…all well and good to move on to the next book, but now…..I am asking for YOUR help.
I want you to promote these ebooks and books, too. I want you to spread the word.
On your way out – or in – buy an eBook. Or 4. Or 10. For the price of a cup of coffee you can have the secrets of a professional island hopping blogger. A fired, depressed security officer, turned island hopping blogger.
Yes, contrary to what some other folks do…..I ACTUALLY SHARE my best tips, secrets, tips and tricks in these books.
Why do I charge $2.99, then? Am I insane?
I want to take tens of millions of people with me.
Tens of millions of people around the world can afford to spend $2.99 to make their dreams come true.
Of course, I am FAR more likely to become more and more famous – haha, see what I did? – when 4, 6 or 30 million people download my eBooks. I am at peace with that. I already have the anti-TMZ missiles lined up, taking aim at bloated, fat pig stalkarazzi, and gossip choppers, as we speak.
Seriously though, I love TMZ, and paparazzi. Sort of.
I don’t intend to become more famous or super rich or any of that.
I just want millions of people to join me on this journey. To retire to a life of island hopping.
I know how shitty life can be (employee years for me, and lean years, early on in my blogging campaign) and I know how fucking brilliant life can be when you live your dreams.
Emphasis on the F word, really, because my life is that brilliant. I mean, I am living in Bali for a 6 month working/playing/blogging vacation. How many people can say that? Not many.
I have lived in Fiji, Costa Rica, India, Nepal, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Peru and Vietnam. I have lived in expansive villas, and serviced homes, and I’ve lived on beaches, on bays and I’ve spent time in hustling, busting centers, like Hanoi, and Bangkok, and Phnom Penh, and Vientienne, and Colombo, and Chennai, and Lima.
I am freer by the day. I want to take you with me.
THAT is why I charge $2.99 per book. That is why I want you to buy 1 or 4, and also, to spread the Blogging from Paradise word, by:
- sending this post to your email list
- sharing it on twitter
- sharing it on Facebook
- sharing it on Google Plus
- sharing it on LinkedIn
- sharing it on any network you can think of
- sharing it on your blog
Guys, I appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart. Really. You make my life, my blog and my Blogging from Paradise community. We really are all in this together.
I want to get these eBooks into as many hands as possible and I am asking my Blogging from Paradise army to promote the living stuffing out of this post.
I appreciate your support guys!
