Shake, rattle, roll.
But we didn’t feel a damn thing.
Kelli and I lived through mild earthquakes in both Savusavu, Fiji and Quepos, Costa Rica.
Except we had no idea the earth was a’quaking.
At least until a few hours after the fact, when locals told us of these mildly terrifying tremors.
In both cases, the apartments/homes were we lived sat on huge, massive slabs of granite.
This powerful foundation insulated us from the shakes, the shimmies, the rattling and the rolling, while in town, objects were falling off of people’s desks.
Imagine your blog sitting on a rock-solid, granite-like, massive foundation.
When you see profit dips, or traffic drying up, you won’t be shaken out, like all the panicking bloggers who build their blogs on a house of flimsy cards.
While the world is shaking, you’re sitting there totally unaware, at peace, chill, relaxed and poised.
How do you build a granite-like foundation for you blog?
By following proven, simple blogging fundamentals.
How do you follow proven, simple blogging fundamentals?
By buying my new eBook of course:
Why I Wrote the Ebook
I was bored.
No seriously; I want to help you build a successful blog. Sticking to the blogging fundamentals outlined in this read is a simple, powerful way to build a sustainable business through your blog.
Or if you have no business blogging aspirations, you can just drive more traffic, gain more readers and help more folks through your blog by sticking to the basics.
I thought so.
I had to write this eBook. Too many bloggers are feasting on blogging junk food, looking for get rich quick schemes, magic bullets and a litany of horseshit, fear-based, desperate strategies that are about as fundamentally sound as a Ponzi Scheme run by a caffeine-addled coke head with the attention span of an ADD guppy.
Stick to the basics. You will succeed over the long haul.
I mucked things up for years because I strayed from the fundamentals. No need for you to take that path.
I was your Blogging Guinea Pig (albeit, ripped, squared-jawed, and with a bizarre sense of humor, which makes for a really weird looking Blogging Guinea Pig).
I did the experimenting. On me. No need for you to take this same path of struggle, straining and striving for many years.
When I did make the turn and stuck to the blogging fundamentals shared in this eBook, blogging became more fun. Blogging became easier. Profits flowed in more easily. Much more easily.
Traffic found me with less effort. As did prospering partnerships, awesome friends, blog comments, social shares, new blogging income streams.
I turned on the light switch, moving from the Blogging Dark Ages to the Blogging Light Room, and I want you to experience this same level of happiness, fulfillment, joy, abundance, prosperity, and yes, if you want to draw weird analogies between blogging and….anything…..this power resides within sticking to the fundamentals too.
More than anything, I wrote this eBook to inspire you to have fun blogging and to live your dreams through blogging. Whatever those dreams may be to you.
If your dreams include living in Fiji for months like Kelli and I, awesome. Following these fundamentals will help you do that.
Or if you want to spend weeks in New York City doing house sits – as we are now – as a full time, pro blogger, sticking to the basics is the key.
Or if you want to just chill in your home town as a full time or part time blogger, blogging success sits in the 10 fundamentals I share in this eBook.
Imagine trying to catch a gnat with chopsticks.
Most bloggers find building a successful blog just as difficult a venture….because they stray from the fundamentals.
If you follow these 10 stupid simple blogging fundamentals in the eBook you will:
- have fun blogging
- enjoy the blogging ride
- gradually increase your blog traffic and profits
- avoid the stress, straining, striving, headaches, tension and worry associated with straying from the fundamentals
- gain confidence and clarity in your blog
- position yourself to build a full time, pro blogging career
- cultivate the habit of being patient
The last bullet point bears mentioning.
When you follow successful blogging tips while maintaining a loving, fun energy, a month could pass without you making a penny through your blog and you will not give a rat’s fanny.
This is called knowing. As in, no matter your results, you know that you are doing proven things to build a successful blog so you won’t be shaken out after a month with no blogging profits or maybe 2 email subscribers signing up to your list.
Take this attitude – by buying, reading, studying and following the advice I offer in the eBook – and you will succeed with your blog as surely as the sun rises and sets every day.
Speaking of sunsets…..
I snapped the cover image in gorgeous Playa Potrero, Costa Rica.
Kelli and I spent 5 days in this tropical paradise located on the Pacific Ocean.
We lived 2 blocks from the beach. Meaning nightly trips to the tranquil, serene ocean front for dazzling pictures.
Like this sunset shot I snapped….
