Do You Fear Changing Your Blogging Strategy to Scale Powerfully?

Granada, Nicaragua.

 

I noticed a trend about one month ago.

 

After changing my blogging strategy I spotted instant growth.

 

I scaled powerfully to change my approach to blogging.

 

I simultaneously opened:

 

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram

 

to:

 

  • connect with new people
  • comment genuinely on updates
  • engage folks via messages

 

I also:

 

  • updated 10-15 posts from Blogging From Paradise daily
  • shared each updated post on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn

 

Meeting new people, engaging new people and sharing posts on 3 social networks scaled my presence immediately. As one marker, my blog comments increased 10 fold on a daily basis.  People began finding my blog through seemingly new channels in addition to visiting through Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

 

Prior to scaling effectively I feared changing my blogging strategy. Publishing new content, commenting on a handful of blogs daily and engaging my old school blogging buddies felt comfortable as my old way of blogging for a few years. Venturing out of this comfort zone seemed scary. Would I be wasting my time? Would people reject me? Would people ignored me? Would I see no real blogging returns after the tactic shift?

 

Intuitively, my gut told me to meet a large number of new people in order to scale. Logically, the ego tried to scare me with various fears, to prevent me from scaling and thriving.

 

Trusting your gut leads to growth. Trusting the ego leads to failure and quitting.

 

Do you fear changing your blogging strategy? Do you feel stuck inside of your blogging comfort zone? Are you networking with the same people daily? When is the last time you met 5, 10 or 50 new people in a day or two?

 

Fear arises the moment you change your strategy to meet more people. Powerfully scaling involves opening up to humanity in a genuine way. Meeting a high volume of human beings involves interacting with a larger number people who operate primarily from fear. Versus receiving 1 pitch message daily you may receive 10, 20 or 30 after scaling effectively for a few days or weeks. Being spam messaged 20 times daily by people pushing their business, begging for money or desiring your love definitely touches a nerve sometimes.

 

I have received hundreds of messages from:

 

  • people asking me for money
  • people pitching me their business
  • people looking for love

 

after scaling effectively.

 

Welcome to the concept of scale!

 

In the past, my unconscious mind deeply feared interacting with cyber beggars, cyber pitchers and people romantically interested in me. I played big for a week, experienced a flood of fear via these unclear folks then killed my scaling campaign in its tracks. I rejected increased worldly success, happiness and the joy of helping more people because I feared dealing with scared, unclear humans.

 

I eventually learned from high level entrepreneurs and my prior month of experience: gaining greater publicity involves meeting and helping many people interested in blogging and many people with varied interests dripping with fear and a blanket lack of clarity. Targeting your blogging campaign does not make a difference. Being seen by a significantly high number of people means getting pitched by a ton more people.

 

Most bloggers play small, struggle and fail because many deeply fear interacting with a high volume of unclear folks. If you fear people you will never scale effectively. If you never scale effectively you will not succeed progressively.

 

A few bloggers play big, thrive and enjoy the ride by:

 

  • conquering the fear of interacting with unclear humans
  • scaling effectively
  • leaving their comfort zone on a daily basis

 

At the end of a long day, when I feel tired, I do not genuinely enjoy reading my 30th pitch message between Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for the day. But leaving my comfort zone allows me to help more bloggers. I embrace the blogging sour with the blogging sweet.

 

Being seen by many people gives me the opportunity to help more bloggers. If I need to ignore or block a few unclear people to help more bloggers I feel at peace with that trade off.

 

Never get entirely comfortable with your blogging strategy. Even if blogging feels easier as you generously create, connect and succeed keep edging outside of your comfort zone to help more people, to test your limits and to free yourself mentally.

 

Expanding blogging success unfolds well outside of your blogging comfort zone.

    Hello Ryan! I hope you’re doing great. My name’s Martin Pavey.

    I’ve been meaning to read your content for a while after I received several recommendations but I was on a Zoom call with Glenn Shepherd yesterday and he was very complimentary of you and I was compelled to get in contact.

    It’s so interesting what the universe offers up (though I don’t believe in coincidence). This post is a perfect example of that.

    I’ve been reflecting a lot on the fact that people actually fear success far more than failure.
    We can be rigid and afraid in our business and creative practice. We fear the “toxic” but at the same time reject the transformational. I love how you say you “embrace the blogging sour with the blogging sweet.”

    Nothing is perfect, things transform, that’s why we must value progress over perfection.

    Really loved this post, you’re clearly very strategic and know what you want and I really admire that.

    I look forward to learning more from your wisdom as I am embarking on a blogging strategy myself for my development and my business.

    Have a wonderful day, Ryan.

    Hi Ryan, I think in today’s digital era, you naturally get rewarded in many ways for being more social and connecting with higher numbers of people. But it does come at a price, as you mentioned in the post.
    I think your dedication to helping bloggers and scaling it is admirable, especially as it involves going beyond your comfort zone.
    Thanks for the tips.
