Review of How to Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting

  January 18, 2020 blogging tips 🕑 10 minutes read

Surrounded by green in the jungles of Buena Vista, Costa Rica….blog commenting has been good to me. And it’ll be good to you, too.


(this post was originally published in September 2014…..)


New York Times Best Selling Author Chris Brogan



I am excited to announce the release of the next eBook in the Blogging from Paradise series.


Blogging from Paradise: How to Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting


I mean, if Chris Brogan, New York Times Best Selling Author and Richard Branson’s Business Coach, is on board, and has tweeted out my 2nd eBook I have to be doing something right.


I am SO excited to launch this eBook because I, like a few folks out there, have tapped into the power of commenting.


(Here’s the part where I talk about what I’ve achieved through blog commenting, so you can say, “Aha! This guy knows what he’s talking about.”)


I’ve been blessed because I:


  • Received an eBook endorsement from New York Times Best Selling Author Chris Brogan through blog commenting (for How to Retire to a Life of Island Hopping through Smart Blogging)
  • Have been asked to speak at NYU about how to monetize your blog (the monetizing chapter from my first eBook is part of the class’ course curriculum)
  • Have been featured on over 30 authority blogs in a 12 week stretch
  • Have traveled the world for the past 40 months straight, visiting Fiji, Bali, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Costa Rica and Peru during this stretch, funding my travels and boosting my savings account with my blog income


What was my NUMBER ONE marketing tool? Blog commenting.


How did I get on Chris Brogan’s radar?  Through blog commenting.


How did I get on Matthew Capala’s radar? (My friend, marketing wizard and NYU professor who asked me to speak at NYU) Through blog commenting.


How was I *asked* (29 of the 30 people reached out to me, to feature me, as virtually all of the opportunities fell into my lap) to be featured on so many blogs in such a short about of time? Through blog commenting.


Another stressful day in Fiji.

Another stressful day in Fiji.

Blog commenting is a simple, powerful way to reach influencers. I would run myself ragged trying to get the attention of Chris Brogan, a guy who advises Google, Disney, GM, and Middle Eastern royalty (yes, he once presented to a renowned royal family in the Middle East, too), and Richard Branson, if I used traditional methods of trying to get in touch with him.


BUT…..if I used a less conventional, undervalued approach that so many people ignore, well, I may just pop up on his radar, form a bond and build a connection which prospers both parties.



“What an excellent book!

What is great about Ryan is the way he continually finds highly successful strategies that most marketers don’t even think of. It’s not just theory either, he walks the talk and shows step by step how to build a wildly successful blog whilst travelling the world through blog commenting.

5 Star recommended!”


Andrew Spence, Owner of, Blogger, Online Business Coach, Learn. Live. Grow


By the way, did I mention that I didn’t even ask for Chris’ endorsement? Crazy, right?


How to Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting


Who is this eBook for?


Any blogger who wants to spread their word, inspire their readers, increase their blog traffic, boost their blog income and wouldn’t mind making a bunch of powerful, influential, supportive friends along the way.


This eBook is for:


  • New bloggers who want to start their blogging journey off on the right foot
  • Experienced, successful bloggers who want to bump up their blogging game to the next level by forming bonds with influencers
  • Struggling veteran bloggers who need to find a reliable, proven method of fortifying their blogger outreach strategy
  • Travel bloggers who want to crack the internet lifestyle code by connecting with pros who can help them engineer an island hopping, freeing, full-time professional blogging experience


As you can see, just about any blogger on earth can use these strategies to succeed in building prospering relationships, boosting their blog readerships and making money through blogging.


The thing is guys, you are sharing your opinion a gazillion times each day without knowing it. It’s called “preference”, or “judging”, or “sharing your thoughts.”


From your breakfast experience, to your office job experience, to your pro blogging experience, I’m sure you’ve shared your opinion many times today.


Building an online empire though blog commenting is all about learning how to share your opinion in relevant, authority spots, so you can form bonds with influential bloggers, who will happily leverage your presence as you continue to add massive value to their blogs.


Add value. Receive value. The golden rule of life rings true online and offline. Renowned, successful, powerful people from your niche made their bones by creating seriously thorough value through many channels.


I recall Chris Brogan saying once that he gave away free, valuable information on his blog for many years. He wasn’t just writing blog posts; he was solving business problems, inspiring folks and changing lives.


It makes perfect sense that he’s made over $1 million dollars through speaking engagements where clients found him through his blog. Now, re-read that; he’s made a million dollars through his blog, through speaking engagements, ALONE. Factor in consulting jobs and other income streams and you can only imagine what he’s made through blogging, dough-wise.


Do you kinda think that he may just appreciate some Ryan Biddulph guy who spent hour after hour, crafting in depth, thorough, 5, 6, or 8 paragraph long comments, to his blog, for a series of months?


Obviously, these guys and gals love folks who bring value to the table, and these types of folks move the world, so it makes sense to help them out, and to share value for their audience, because it’s a win-win for all. You help, you detach from outcomes, you receive help.


Comments Are Content


Comments are content. Adding content to an influential blog adds value to the post.


I hit on this point in my eBook because I feel that if you really want to make an impact through blog commenting you must remember this critical fact. Writing mini guest posts makes an impact; authority bloggers and eager readers will appreciate your comments.


You’ll pop up on the radar, and will make a serious, positive impact on so many people’s lives, by simply treating comments like content.

Online Empire Building


Blogging from Paradise is an online empire within the island hopping, pro blogging niche. I’ve been blessed to attract a huge, supportive network in such a short amount of time.


Ahhhh…..the power of clarity. That’s it; in a nutshell, my clarity around my blog, and my eBooks, and my brand, helped me to comment effectively. I became mindful while commenting, slowed down my thoughts, and instead of trying to GET I focused instead of GIVING.

Throwback picture. Absolutely stunning photo from above the cloud forest in Monteverde, Costa Rica.


This is the great secret of effective commenting, and empire building through blog commenting; purifying your intent.


Comment to make friends with pros, to add value to blog posts and to make an indelible impact wherever you show up.



“I loved your book Ryan. I finished it in one sitting.

It’s “THE” most comprehensive and personalized guide on blog commenting, I have read.

It’s such an eye opener. Half-billion worth advertising industry is moving online and blog commenting is still an undiscovered jewel of pure and free advertising. Who knew? Ryan, you have personalized the whole book based on your own experience. I never felt like I was reading a book. The whole time it felt as if I was having a conversation with you in person.”

~ Harshajyoti Das, Best Selling Amazon eBook Author, Owner of Harsh Dot IM


Doing this expands your presence quickly because when you move your focus from solely getting, to giving freely, magical opportunities will open up for you.


Why I Wrote the eBook


I want to take you with me.


I’m typing these words from the crib in Savusavu, Fiji. We’re nestled on a jungle cliff 50 meters above Savusavu Bay.


I’m soaking up a million dollar view as I write, watching the swaying coconut trees in the front yard, the small, beautiful, melodic songbirds flittering from branch to branch and the peaceful bay shimmying as the gentle breeze carries through the jungle gorge behind the house.


I want you to be here.


I want you to retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging.


I want you to become a pro blogger. Maybe becoming a pro blogger in your hometown works for you. Awesome. Or maybe becoming a pro blogger who travels all over your country works for you. Awesome. Or maybe becoming a tropical paradise-living, pro blogging gal or guy vibes with you.


Whatever the case may be, I want you to be free.


I want to take you with me on this pro blogging journey.


Blog commenting, more than any marketing channel, helped me engineer this freeing lifestyle, and I feel that no matter where you are in your blogging career that you can make the most serious impact on influencers – without having to jump through hoops, to evade gatekeepers – through blog commenting.



“If I told you that commenting on blogs could lead to an endorsement from a New York Times Best Selling Author would you listen closely? Blogging from Paradise owner and Author Ryan Biddulph secured a tweet worthy eBook endorsement from New York Times Best Selling Author and Business Genius Chris Brogan.

Blog commenting was the gateway activity which opened such prospering doors for Ryan, and that’s how we met. Simple commenting with genuine interest and passion has enabled Ryan to create opportunities for himself he otherwise would have not had. A couple of years ago he was a laid-off security guard in NJ with little hope for a better tomorrow, today he is living the life he always dreamed of.

Through commenting he is able to afford the lifestyle many of us can only wish for.

Get his book to learn how to create something from nothing… utilizing the untapped power of commenting online.”


  Matthew Capala, Bootstrap Marketing Whiz and Owner of, Dynamic Speaker, Trainer, Blogger


I know that I run a way cool blog, and that it’s branded in a darn cool way, and that I’m clear on my blog, and my brand, and that I’ve used social media marketing effectively for the past 4 years, but blog commenting was the ONE blogger outreach strategy which helped make this blogging bit go, for me, so that I could retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging.


Commenting Superstars Who’ve Influenced Me


Adrienne Smith, Carol Amato, Don Purdum and Harleena Singh are 4 commenting champions who’ve influenced my commenting career.


OK, I should say, that these folks inspired me to comment as I do.


I am grateful for them, and count each blogger as my good friend, and I want to stress that you need to connect with these folks immediately to learn from the pros.


It’s Time


I’ll share my commenting success stories.


I’ll explain why you should comment on authority blogs.


I’ll offer you practical tips on why you should post in-depth, insightful, thoughtful comments on authority blogs.


I’ll share specifically how I landed an eBook endorsement from a New York Times Best Selling Author through blog commenting.


I wrote this eBook because I wanted to share my personal experiences and strategies with you so that you too can capitalize on my commenting success.


Anybody can comment on blogs because anybody can post their opinion on authority blogs.


When you have access to proven strategies and a solid framework for commenting you’ll develop greater confidence in this marketing strategy, and will be inspired to post even more thoughtful, insightful, thorough comments to authority blogs.


Remember guys, I want to take you with me.


That’s always been my intent and it’ll always be my intent.


Please share this post on all of your social networks so we can bring as many bloggers as possible to paradise AND so we can help folks understand the power of blog commenting.


I appreciate your support.


Let’s spread the word!


Until next time….enjoy paradise.

    Hey Ryan
    Having read the book, I can attest how awesome it is, and I am not just saying that because of my relationship with you :). What I really loved about this book is not only the case you made for commenting and fleshing out a subject that one the surface would seem so simple, you really went so much deeper than that. You laid about a very compelling case for the importance of creating value as a means of finding success with your blog, and gave people actionable tips on how to do that. And as usual, some great stuff about mindset. Any blogger will benefit from this book.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 4:22 pm

      Hi Kelli, Thanks so much as always. You’re right about going deeper; I feel more folks need to know why they’re commenting, and that value-added driver makes the comment engine go. Appreciate your proofreading eye 😉

  2. Harleena Singh says:
    at 9:08 am

    Hi Ryan,

    Congratulations yet again 🙂

    I know I read this and left a comment on the earlier update the moment I read about it on one of your Facebook update! My Goodness – you sure were born with a keyword in your hands (Just as Enstine tells me!!).

    Honestly speaking, I would be lost if I were living in such a heavenly place. It always amazes me how you manage to write so much. Even now, I am waiting for the Discus to reload at Jane’s blog as I see your guest post there but am not able to comment as yet – you surely DO keep writing all the time! Hats-off to you and that’s commendable indeed.

    Coming to the post and book, you know how much most of us love to comment, and yes, that in itself takes care of a major part of our writing for the day I would say, because of the numerous blogs one visits. Then our own blog posts, the comments there, other long conversations, emails, etc….one is forever writing!! But I love that you manage to get so much more done, thus your second eBook! So, that’s a good reminder for the rest of us to get started I would say.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, and for the kind mention as well. Like we inspired you to comment in some ways, you inspire us to keep writing and head towards writing an eBook now. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 4:19 pm

      Harleena, You’ve been SUCH an inspiration for me on the comment front. It’s just a great way to make friends, and to practice writing as you point out. So much appreciated, and it’s my pleasure to mention you 🙂

  3. Aden Clark says:
    at 9:25 am

    Hey Ryan,

    You hit the nail on the head with this.

    Blog commenting is such a powerful way to build relationships, not only with the big dawgs, but the community of people who are interested in what we have to offer.

    I know first hand that blog commenting can completely change a business.

    TRUE STORY! It was only 2 days ago that i got a request for a skype consultation, that resulted in $44.10, and the guy also confirmed he will be getting positioned in a system i promote, which will result in $1000 commissions within the next 7 days.


    One blog comment turns into $1044.10, and i only spent 1 hour on skype! You do the math!

    Get this ebook guys & gals, as i see myself as a newbie blog commenter compared to Ryan and if i can get results, then so can you, with the right guidance from Ryan of course.

    Im getting this book right now, just incase i missed anything!

    All the best & congrats on the new book,

    Aden Clark.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 4:17 pm

      Wow Aden, congrats on your sale! Awesome man….and yep, a thoughtful comment opens so many doors and you’re an up and coming commenting pro from what I’ve seen. Thanks so much for your support 🙂

  4. Karmakar says:
    at 10:13 am

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks a lot for the information… 🙂

    Yup.. struggling a lot… it is very easy for me to solve a difficult microsoft excel equation, Statistical relationship between to different data point.. Piece of cake…

    But blog commenting… Ahpweee…

    Sometimes I hope to get some “Open Sesame” type of tool for blog commenting…:)


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 4:13 pm

      Hahaha Karmakar, I can see you’re super left-brained and super smart. That’s an awesome start. Now, meditating and mindfulness can help you comment effectively….and my eBook of course 😉 Thanks so much.

  5. Deborah Tutnauer says:
    at 4:12 pm

    I’m excited to read the book Ryan and already have the buy page open to click after I finish this comment.

    One of the things that struck me as I was reading was the value/karma equation. During the days past of commenting purely for backlinks, I was turned off to blog commenting because so much of it was irrelevant and done without giving deep value. The ethics of it felt wrong. Thus my marketing and information sharing efforts focused on social media and SEO…for connection…which in my business would then hopefully lead to offline communication and relationships.

    I have recently come back around to blog commenting from a different perspective. Adrienne Smith has influenced me greatly with her incredible communication style and love of people and through her I found your blog. Life on the islands looks lovely!! I am appreciative of the methods and mindset you share with regards to how commenting can spark the interest of authority bloggers through valuable content along with sharing and promoting other to ones own audience.

    I’m excited to read your book Ryan!


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 8:57 pm

      Wow Deborah, thanks so much for picking up my eBook! Adrienne is a gem, and she too helped get me on the right commenting path. Thanks so much once again and enjoy your day.

      • Deborah Tutnauer says:
        at 11:27 am

        Thanks for the reply Ryan!
        Quick question. I have all the boxes checked and subscribed to your blog as well, yet I did not receive notification that my comment was approved, nor of your reply.

        Is there something I’m missing to do to make sure I’m in the loop with your posts, etc??


      • Ryan Biddulph says:
        at 2:16 pm

        My pleasure Deborah. Thanks SO much….I’ll check on the notification, you should receive them….it didn’t go to spam, did it? My posts themselves should definitely arrive, although not instantly when I publish….may be a time buffer.

      • Deborah Tutnauer says:
        at 12:32 am

        I did receive your Thank You today for purchasing your new book!! It’s on my reading list for weekend…

        But nowhere is notifications of new posts, nor replies to my comments. I check my spam folder a few times per day.. Very curious for sure.

        I’ll keep trying to figure it out.. or just make a note to pop back over here a few times per week to see what you are up to Ryan!


      • Ryan Biddulph says:
        at 12:25 am

        Hmmm, I’ll figure that one out Deborah, thanks for letting me know! As for now, please bookmark it, and try to remember that Blogging from Paradise guy at least once each week so you can stop by 😉 Enjoy your weekend.

  6. Brittany Bullen says:
    at 10:09 pm

    Woohoo! Go Ryan Go! You are a writing machine, my friend. Do you ever write by dictation like Carol Amato does, or do you type it all? You must be the world’s fastest typist.

    Curious– are you one of those people who only sleeps four hours a night?


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 1:03 am

      Brittany thanks so much! No dictation but I like Carol’s strategy. 6 to 8, although sometimes 4 😉 Usually I write 1,000 to 2,000 words each day to devote toward my eBooks, so I complete them in 2 to 4 weeks. Thanks again.

  7. Virtuo Rohit says:
    at 11:50 pm

    Hey Ryan,

    Waiting for the Ebook to be released. Nonetheless, I got to agree with Brittany. You are a writing machine dude. How do you manage to write so much?

    Maybe you are blessed with superpowers. Haha 😀 . To be honest it’s all your hard work and dedication to your work. And that’s why you are on the right path to be one of the best bloggers and authors ever.

    Hats off to you man. Thank you so much for blessing us with this valuable content.

    Have a great week ahead!

    – Rohit

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 1:02 am

      Hi Rohit, It’s live and ready to roll, just click the image up top to pick it up 😉 Thanks so much my man.

  8. Jens-Petter Berget says:
    at 1:10 am

    Hi Ryan,

    Congratulations. That’s awesome news. I’m impressed with how productive you are (especially since you’re actually living in paradise), and the topics of your books is perfect for me. I used to comment a lot, many years ago. The reason I don’t do it much anymore, is that it takes a lot of time. Now, I comment on the blogs I read regularly. That’s about it.

    But, what I understand as one of the most important parts of marketing, maybe even the most important one, is to create strong relations with other people. And, commenting on blogs is great for that.

    I’ll be buying your book, that’s for sure.


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:22 pm

      Yep Jens, creating those strong bonds is oh so important. If we do that, we are golden, and commenting helps tons. Oh yes I remember your commenting presence quite a bit; you’re doing a fine job, still, from what I see. Thanks so much!

  9. Vernon says:
    at 4:37 am

    Well, Ryan,

    I certainly think that it’s appropriate that you bring out a book like that. Anyone who has spent some time following you knows that you’re perhaps the king of blog commenting!

    Congrats on getting another ebook out!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:20 pm

      Vernon I felt the pull right after I published my first eBook. Seemed like a great fit. Thanks so much 🙂

  10. Erik Emanuelli says:
    at 4:56 am

    Hi Ryan,
    congratulations for your new eBook, my friend.

    You are the master of blog commenting,
    it looks like you are everywhere in the blogosphere!

    Just shared via Google+.
    Have a great day inFiji! 🙂

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:20 pm

      Thanks Erik! I so appreciate you buddy.

  11. Harshajyoti Das says:
    at 5:45 am

    I have never taken blog commenting seriously until I have read your book.

    I have already started seeing instant results. Right after I read your book, I have posted my review as a ‘comment’. The same comment has been highlighted in this post.

    If anybody wants a proof on the power of blog commenting, it’s right here.

    Ryan, well done. Wish you all the success with your book. Hit me up when the Kindle version is out. Will post my review on Kindle and Goodreads as well.

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:19 pm

      Hi Harshajyoti, Thanks so much….I uploaded to Amazon, pretty sure that’s the kindle version, right? I’m trying to remember if it’s justified or not though….your comments are wonderful, you’ll reap many awesome returns. Thanks, thanks, thanks!!!

  12. TimothyTorrents says:
    at 10:18 am


    I got your other book and I’ll definitely get this one soon. I actually was just looking for some information on some blogging related websites and I saw a few of your comments. Just out of curiosity, how much many comments do you usually make per day?

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:18 pm

      Timothy, awesome thanks so much. Good question; I’d say 10 to 15 blogs each day….but I never set a number goal because I want to be as thorough as possible.

  13. Adrienne says:
    at 12:06 pm

    Hey Ryan,

    I finally made it by and I’m not surprised at all that you’ve already released your next book. Blog commenting, well who the heck said it was dead again? LOL!!!

    I appreciate you mentioning me and for those who do not take your advice, or mine for that matter, and start reaching out to others and building those relationships will regret it down the road.

    I got an email from an influencer who asked if I would be interested in being interviewed by a company that had approached him and it’s paying out some big bucks. Because of that relationship we’ve built he thought of me when they asked him for recommendations from other influencers. Imagine my pleasant surprise.

    My goodness, the relationships I’ve build and the opportunities I’ve had is still overwhelming to me today. It’s not about being annoying either, it’s about helping and caring which I know is who you are.

    I don’t doubt that this book is just as good and I wish I could have reviewed it for you. Way too much on my plate right now but I know it’s got to be as good as your first one. Am anxious to see what else you come out with next.

    Congratulations Ryan and I wish you the best. Thanks again for the mention, I’m truly honored.


    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 2:13 pm

      Hi Adrienne, Congrats on your interview! So excited for you….it’s such a great feeling to have things like this happen. Shows that yep, commenting really rocks. Thanks so much and it’s my pleasure.

      at 12:24 am

      Moumita thanks so much. Actually it’s going live in a few days 😉 I’m just wrapping it up. It’s going to talk about how my travel experiences will help you become a better blogger, and also, it’ll be #3 in the series…..#4 and #5 are being hatched as we speak too 🙂

    at 9:18 am

    Hey Ryan,

    Many congratulations on the new book launch and can I say that I’m not at all surprised at the topic. It is an area you are very strong in and one in how we got connected too 🙂

    You always leave well thought out, high quality comments and support the blogger. It is all about relationships and your style helps to build those more than anything.

    Great idea Ryan and I’m sure it will be a fabulous success. (As always I’m using Triberr to spread the good news 🙂 )

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 12:19 am

      TG, so happy you stopped by and have shared your thoughts. We have an amazing resource in the comments field and you have done a smash up job sharing thoughtful, in-depth comments on blogs, especially here. I so hope we get to meet during our respective travels. Thanks so much 🙂

  16. Drewry says:

    I personally notice your blog comments at ProBlogger and it inspired me to stop by your site to see what you were about. I’m inspired to see you on here and the length of time you’ve been blogging, and also to see your daily improving search engine rankings. I’m also glad you put out this blog post because I’ll stop by again to read what you have to say completely about blog commenting and how to build an online empire from doing it. Thank you for just being you and please feel free to stop by DrewryNewsNetwork anytime. 🙂

    at 4:03 pm

    Hey Ryan,

    You are killing it dude. Great stuff. And I have a feeling eBook #3 is in the works too.

    Blog commenting is a pretty awesome strategy if you do it right. And that’s something alot of people don’t do … they don’t get it right. I think there’s a certain science to leaving really meaningful comments that could truly get on someone’s radar.

    Great stuff Ryan and wishing you nothing but success, my friend.

    Have a great day.

    – Andrew

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 8:12 pm

      Andrew you do SUCH a good job with commenting, I’m learning tons from you. Actually #3 is waiting to go live….Just proof read it, and when I get the cover from my man Phil Dews, I’ll start promoting it. Started eBook #4 yesterday. Thanks so much!

  18. Irina says:

    Hi, Ryan!

    That’s awesome news!I am surprised with your idea! It is a good way to help new bloggers and improve your blogging career through it. I love what you are doing.
    Blog commenting is effective and worthy way to build your blog reputation. Blog comments provide rich content and help me to compose good blog posts.
    Thanks for your conribution!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 7:52 pm

      Aha! Rich content I dig that Irina. Thanks so much.

    at 5:34 pm

    Hi Ryan,

    My apologies for being a little late to the party. That trip to Dallas over the weekend for my speaking engagement was a lot more intense than I planned, but it was AWESOME!

    Anyway, I digress, lol…

    I am so honored that you choice to mention me in your article as someone who is influencing you. In all honesty, I think it’s the other way around. I’m definitely blessed by our growing friendship!!!

    I can’t wait to read your book! I’m in the middle of my busiest season and it’s hard to read right now, but you can take it to the bank that I will be purchasing it very soon. Who knows, I may need some more airplane reading, lol…

    The one thing that really stands out in your comments to me isn’t just the value you give, but your personality comes right out and it’s so refreshing and encouraging.

    It’s more than a quick “thank you” or “well done” when you comment. We know you really took the time to read what was said.

    If anyone has the authority to write about blog commenting, it’s you my friend!

    Thank you again for the kind words and the mention.

    Hi Ryan,

    Congratulations on your new eBook and on your success. Like some of the others have said I am amazed how much writing you get done. I notice a couple of people said things like especially since you are living in paradise. But I am wondering if that is why you are so productive. I mean are you more creative and inspired because you live in such awesome places?

    I know Wayne Dyer writes his books on Maui. When Robert Kiyosaki wrote Rich Dad Poor Dad he took himself up some mountains (which name escapes me).

    I live in a beautiful place too and when we first moved here as all I wanted to do was play but now I have that in balance.

    I have learned heaps from Adrienne like many others.

    I have also loved watching your journey online Ryan. You are such an inspiration.

      Thanks so much Sue 😉 I build my day around what I value, so it’s kinda easy to churn out eBook after eBook, at least for me.

    This book is going to be invaluable. I’m new to travel blogging and have quickly realized that all comments and every tweet I put out there gets evaluated as content. Not surprising that even famous writers like Junot Diaz write drafts of their tweets first.
    Will keep an eye out for your book. Thanks for writing it!

      TPBS, appreciate it! Love the idea of drafting tweets to; if you’re into preparing, with a careful eye on detail, you’ll simply draw in success to you. That’s how successes do it. Thanks again and my pleasure.

    Hi Ryan,

    Just want to let you know I really enjoyed your ebook ‘How to Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting’. A great read! I’ve already started with the advice you gave and it definitely makes sense.

    Have fun in Bali! See you around the comment threads. 🙂

    Thank you.

    Hey Ryan,

    This ebook looks quite epic! I’m in the middle of reading Bold by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler, and I’m definitely adding this to my list of books to read right now. I know it’s going to be golden as everything I’ve read from you has been!

    Keep crushing it!

        You’re welcome, Ryan! I had a year hiatus due to dabbling in the online fitness industry, but glad to be back at it. I’ll be buying a copy soon and doing a review. Super relevant to what I have going on.

        Thanks for your comment and keep up the amazing content! Subscribed!

    I love getting comments on my blog.

    For me it’s a way to connect with my readers and find out what they are thinking. It also allows me to expand on things I’ve written about and therefore add to the richness of the story I’m telling. I also use feedback from my readers to inspire other posts – in fact I’ve also written posts where I’ve curated the advice and expertise from my readers it’s been so good.

    Quality commenting helps add quality to any post.

    Congrats on the success, Ryan…the reason you’re on my radar is from your comments over at my blog (which are always very welcome!). I also see you around on other blogs… I hate to think how many comments you must have done in total!!!

    • Ryan Biddulph says:

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Great to see you.

      Likewise on your comments because even though your blog is eye-popping I found you through a comment somewhere, what seems like eons ago LOL.

      I need to stop by again. It has been a while. Especially because now I’m in Qatar which is as luxe as it gets 🙂

    Hi Ryan
    I just stumbled upon this post and what an eye opener. I must thanks Listiller for bringing me to this post. I will definitely go ahead and buy a copy of the eBook. Can’t wait to dig in and see what’s there for me. I’ve been in the digital marketing industry for quite sometime now and have been procrastinating my idea of running a blog about things that interests me.
    Do you think I can do well by blogging about my interests?

    • Ryan Biddulph says:

      Cool Charles. Enjoy the eBook! Yes you can do super duper well. The key is to follow your passion. Like Elvis at Listiller and me here 😉 Since you have had success in digital marketing I feel you have the framework down to succeed in blogging too. Different mediums on some levels but many principles apply to both.
