Do You Build Blogging Success Momentum Daily?

Contrary to popular belief, blogging is not writing a few viral posts after working really hard for a wee bit to become a wildly successful, happy, professional blogger.


Going pro is doing simple blogging things:


  • daily
  • generously
  • patiently
  • persistently
  • knowingly


for a sustained period of time. Doing simple things daily builds success momentum. Being successful enough today evolves into a little bit more success tomorrow if you do simple things generously, patiently and persistently daily, for years of your life. Even when fear arises in ego, feel it then do simple things today, tomorrow and for the next 1, 2 then 5 years. Each blog post you publish daily for 3 years becomes 1,095 simple, helpful blog posts scattered all over the internet but targeted to your blogging niche. Someone sees 1 post, then 2, then 10, because you did simple things daily for 3 years.

Build Blogging Success Momentum Daily


When someone sees, reads, enjoys and trusts 2, 5 or 10 of your blog posts the individual becomes a loyal reader. Loyal readers read most if not all of your content. Loyal readers tend to buy your stuff and hire you. Any time anyone buys your stuff and hires you, blogging profits build. As profits build you take more steps to becoming a professional blogger.


Every blogger reading this post nods logically. Intellectually, you and I understand this simple concept of becoming more successful by building success momentum through doing simple, helpful things, daily, for a long time. But ego creates illusory fears intending to stop you from being:


  • generous
  • helpful
  • patient
  • persistent


In the moment you feel fear in the ego-mind, embrace fear and let it go. Proceed to do simple things daily for a sustained period of time.


I observed fear in my ego intending to scare me into not writing this post since I am busy with tasks before we travel to our next destination. But not writing the post guarantees I do not do a simple, helpful thing today. Skipping doing this simple, helpful thing would slow down my success momentum. Plus, I would only skip doing this truly helpful thing for you because I wanted to do helpful things for me, distracting myself for 15 or 20 minutes with non-essential activities.


I journeyed within, faced fear in my mind, felt and released the fear and wrote this post. Why? Doing simple, helpful things daily builds blogging success momentum.


Not doing helpful, simple things daily decreases blogging success momentum. Attempting to do complex things daily or even once in a while does not build blogging success momentum because complex activities confuse readers. Confused readers cannot understand you or your content. Readers who do not understand your blog posts stop following your blog. Blogs void of readers lose all success momentum.


Stop trying to write the next complex, viral blog post. Either write a simple, helpful 600 word post now or write a simple, helpful, 1500 word, SEO-optimized post now. Either strategy works based on your intuitive pull mixed with readers needs. Err on the side of publishing a helpful 600 word post versus doing nothing at all because the world can always use your help and the 600 word, helpful post today can become one of the 1,095 blog posts on the web 3 years down the road if you publish posts daily.


Imagine creating a viral online presence by doing simple things versus trying to write a viral blog post with one complex action. Stop swinging and whiffing with complex blogging activities. Keep hitting blogging singles to build success momentum.

    I’ve got that ebook (Commit…1000%). It’s a good one =)

    I like that idea of just putting out a helpful blog post, even if it’s short and sweet 600w. It’s so easy to overthink blogging and think you’ve got to hit a home run every at bat. Nothing wrong with swinging for the fences, but it seems like most games are won with consistent singles and doubles.

    I’m leaning in this direction with a lot of things in life lately, like my daily habits. When I just try to get “on base” and do just a little bit of something (like just wash a few dishes or just clean one little part of the kitchen counter), I often end up doing way more than when I pressure myself to go big or go home (which often ends in doing nothing at all).
