Do you trust your fear-based excuses?
Or do you trust advice from professional bloggers?
Pros advise that buying your domain and hosting is necessary to blog successfully. But most bloggers use free blogging platforms. Struggling bloggers who use free platforms make excuses like:
- I have no money
- I cannot ask my parents for money
- I cannot work a job to get money
- I will use a free platform to get money to buy my domain and hosting
after a pro advises the struggling bloggers to buy their domain and hosting.
However, trusting your excuses instead of following pro blogger advise guarantees that you will permanently:
and eventually quit.
If you ignore success you will fail. If you trust failure you will never succeed.

Obviously, if you struggle as a blogger you are failing. If you keep trusting your ego-based excuses fueling the failure you will continue to fail. Logically this makes perfect sense. If you trust someone who teaches you how to succeed you will begin to succeed yourself. This is easy to understand.
Deciding to trust a pro blogger’s advice versus trusting your fear-based excuses positions you to succeed as a pro blogger. Why? Pros know what you do not know. Pros have experience. Professional bloggers already made many blogging mistakes; these people know what to do to go pro and what to avoid to ensure that you stop struggling.
Listen to pros. Trust pros. Stop trusting your fears. Stop trusting your excuses. Stop believing in your excuses. Stop believing in your doubts. Stop doubting pros. Stop debating pros. Stop resisting pro blogger advice. Stop fighting their advice. Stop ignoring their advice.
If you ignore people who teach you how to succeed you will fail as a blogger, 100% of the time.
Although pro bloggers offer you many pathways to going pro there are non-negotiables that need to be followed 99,99999999999% of the time. Buying your domain and hosting seems to be one such non-negotiable.
If you blog on a free platform you will fail virtually 100% of the time because:
- you do not own the platform
- you have little monetizing potential
- you have little to no credibility
- you have little to no reader trust
- you have little to no branding potential
- you have little to no customizing potential
- free platform owners delete free blogs without warning or explanation: I have personally observed this experience many times since I began blogging in 2008 as 100’s to 1000’s of bloggers within my circles woke up to see 100’s or even 1000’s of posts written and published over years completely deleted forever without an explanation from the free host
You cannot punch through resistance to higher level blogging circles blogging on free platforms because bloggers in these circles sense that if you cannot pay a few dollars a month for hosting and $17 a year for a domain you are not a serious, focused, driven blogger who earns the right to move into higher blogging circles.
It is like saying: I am SO READY to succeed….but I am terrified to lose $7 per month and $17 per year!
If you have not overcome the fear in your mind of losing $7 per month you are 100,000 fears, 5,000 work hours and 10 years away from being a professional blogger. You have FEAR DEEPER FEARS to conquer to go pro!

This is like seeing a little kid riding a bike with training wheels saying they are ready to be the next Evel Knievel.
Does It Make Sense?
Does it make sense to trust your excuses and run the risks I laid out via the bullet point list?
Or does it make sense to trust pro blogger advice to go pro, eventually, yourself?
Does it make sense to trust your fears and fail? Does it make sense to doubt pro blogger advice and fail?
Or does it make sense to trust pro blogger advice and succeed?
Does your freedom seem worth trusting a pro blogger? Or does your mental enslavement seem worth trusting your fear-based excuses?
Face Your Fears to Be Free
Please read this post:
My wife Kelli and I have faced enough of our:
- deep fears
- subtle fears
- fear-based excuses
- fear-based limiting beliefs
- fear-based mental blocks
and felt these uncomfortable emotions to be free to:
- live life on our terms
- live life made to order
- do what we want
- do what we want when we want to do it
- do what we want when we want to do it wherever in the world we want to do it
We had to face our deepest fears to undergo the process of trusting wise, generous leaders over our fear-based excuses.
You will need to do the same thing to be free, peaceful and happy about your blogging campaign.
Pros can help you identify your excuses. But you need to walk through your excuses by facing your fears.
No one can let go of your excuses for you.
You need to do that in order to be free.
