Call it the Netflix effect.
I’m obsessed with superhero shows on the freaking site.
Each show rocks.
But more than that….each show makes me feel like I can be a superhero too.
Through Netflix Osmosis.
It’s a weird process. Backed by biology (I think?). And by being up at 2 AM after living through a binge-watching stupor for the prior 11 hours.
Anyway, it go me thinking: what if you too can become a superhero?
But even better: A Superhero Blogger?
One who leaps over blogging obstacles in a single bound?
A blogger who creates content at the drop of a hat?
Wowing the pants off of your audience through your cleverness, creativity and one-of-a-kind story telling skills?
I kinda live a superhero life.
I went from being a depressed security guard to retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging.
Island hopping from Fiji, to Bali, to NYC.
But I’ve also:
- Written and self-published 126 eBooks (look at my sidebar to spy a few)
- Appeared on some of the most famous blogs on earth (prepare for a space…a superhero space)
- Faced down spitting cobras and kraits (and still published a post on those days!)
- Developed the fun skill of being able to draw analogies between wacky travel experiences and blogging lessons
What I do comes easily to me.
Because I don’t chase IT.
Because I’ve focused more heavily on BEING versus DOING.
Kinda helps to have The Universe aka God on your side for most of the day, versus trying to do things from your mere mortal meat suit.
1: BE (Versus Do)
I build my blogging day around BEING.
Because when you are BEING a superhero, you easily DO superhero type things.
Most bloggers DESPERATELY DO, trying to change circumstances (avoid being broke, avoid being average, etc,etc) so they are BEING a chump. Instead of being a champ.
Guys, this is a mind screw at first.
But you cannot BE a blogging superhero while FEELING like a mere mortal.
Or while feeling like a loser.
Because the Universe takes you at your beings and feelings, not your doings.
Align your energy on waking.
Be the person. To become the person.
Feel good. Be good.
Then, and only then, move into blogging action.
A few ideas for aligning your energy:
- Blog for the fun of it
- Meditate daily
- Consider EFT tapping
- Breathe deeply throughout the day, to keep your energy flowing
- Embrace mental demons you had been resisting
- Hop into an icy cold shower
Each practical tip helps you to be in the moment. Or, helps you to be the blogger you most want to be.
- Being in the moment
- Residing in the here and now
- Aligning your energy BEFORE blogging
- Not working hard, using force or manipulating circumstances
Mean, be the bold, empowered superhero blogger you want to be.
Raise your energy. Raise your energy. Raise your energy. Raise your energy.
An Important Note
99.999999999999% of blogging advice out there directs you to do stuff.
Build an email list.
Write helpful posts.
Etc, etc, etc.
Why do most bloggers ignore this advice and fail miserably?
Because they are BEING broke, scared, failing bloggers, and this low energy is not a match for high energy, success-producing advice.
They believe that *doing* will change their results. When it is your energy, or *being* a successful blogger that creates the success.
Change your energy.
Change your being.
Profitable ideas, influential bloggers and all types of delish circumstances will find you.
And you’ll move into inspired, prospering actions regularly.
2: BUBTU (Be Pulled by the Infinite….or by Your Intuition)
Be Used By The Universe.
Superhero bloggers feel like they are being used by a Higher Power for some greater purpose.
Call it God. The Universe. Jesus. Or whichever Infinite Power vibes with you.
When I wrote a 6,000 word eBook every day for 90 days in a row I felt like I was being used/channeling/rented out/on auto pilot.
I appeared to be writing.
But the Universe pimped me out for a minute.
Or, I raised my vibe really high, I followed my fun, and was so in the flow that I wrote some of these 6,000 word eBooks in 2-3 hours.
The ideas did not stop.
The Universe supplied me.
You can only do so much on your own before your Manic Monkey Mind tells you what’s impossible.
Spend more time in quiet.
Listen to and act on intuitive nudges.
Allow your ego chatter to dissolve.
God’s instructions remain.
Listen to God.
God knows a thing or Infinity.
3: Grab a Tissue or a Pillow (Release Un-Superhero Energies/Beliefs)
I have cried like a baby who’s lost its rattle.
I’ve nearly broken my hand punching walls.
Eventually – to the delight of my nasal passages, and hands – I kept a tissue and pillow handy when I embraced dark, deep demons disguised as low energies.
Because to appear to be a blogging superhero I had to clear our non superhero type, hellacious, angry, grief-filled, anguished energies I’d carried with me throughout my life.
I am human. Meaning, I had to embrace and release very human, low energy, confining, limiting beliefs before I could do epic, divinely-inspired things.
After taking steps #1 and #2, you may experience a flood of both inspired and nightmarish emotions flow through your being.
BEING may be tough for your ego to take, an ego so used to DOING and TAKING ALL THE CREDIT for both your successes and failures.
Trusting in Divine Guidance may be a horrifying and terrifying concept for your mind to embrace.
So have a tissue and pillow handy for your crying and/or punching sessions.
Because you gotta clear out some lower energies – in most cases – before becoming a higher energy superhero.
If I appear to be happy most of the time it’s only because I’ve cleared out the depression, rage, anguish and despair that prevented me from being a happy guy.
Clearing out that stuff is like eating a sh*t sandwich.
But I’ll eat it with relish – not that I’m The Fly – because I know my powers increase exponentially after letting go mental demons.
4: Let Go Well-Meaning Mentors Who See You as an Average, Ho-Hum Speck of Dirt
I delved into this top recently on Blogging Tips.
Release any blogging mentor who says:
- Nobody cares about you
- You need to work yourself mad to get people’s attention
- The odds are stacked against you
- You are an Underdog
- Blogging is an endless journey of countless, overpowering obstacles
Each belief is a projection of said bloggers, some very un-superhero like limiting belief they cling to, that they gladly project on you.
Limiting beliefs are leased. And you can trade them in for empowering beliefs at any time.
Follow the most inspiring, empowered, superhero bloggers of the world.
If you think my life is magical, follow my blog. Check out my eBooks. Check out my courses.
I see *all of you* as superheros.
Even if you don’t see yourself as a superhero.
Because I believe we are all brilliant.
Some of us need a little nudge to see that brilliance.
Follow bloggers who help you see the brilliant, god-like form of you.
There is no greater form of honesty in appraising a blogger’s ability then in seeing their brilliance, and to remind them of their brilliance. ~ Ryan Biddulph Said This (But the Universe Pimped Him Out, When He Said it)
So the next time you hear a well-meaning but mis-aligned blogger talk of “being brutally honest”, you know whether they see themselves and you as superheroes or super zeroes.
5: Step into the Spirit of this Affirmation
“I do not depend upon people or conditions for my prosperity. God is the Source of my Supply. And God opens channels of unlimited wealth to me, now.” ~ Catherine Ponder
You may feel like an utter loser or at best, mere blogging mortal, because you base your energy/being fully on people, or conditions.
But when you step into the spirit of this affirmation you will slowly but steadily become totally unaffected by:
- People’s opinions of you
- Blogging outcomes (traffic, social shares, comments)
- Financial outcomes
Because these people and conditions/circumstances don’t define you.
No way in Hades each has any bearing on you being a blogging superhero.
You will cease seeing yourself as average, or as an outright loser, when you don’t define yourself on fleeting, illusory appearances, and when you turn to The Divine.
Be a blogging superhero by focusing on feeling good and being led, versus allowing results to dictate your energy.
6: Shop Here

7: Stop Being So Damn Uptight
Energy flows freely through chill, largely detached, happy, fun-loving bloggers.
Superhero bloggers burst at the seams with free-flowing energy.
Few energetic blocks in these cats.
On da flip side, a visit to some blogs feels as enjoyable as a trip to a proctologist who uses a spiked mace during examinations.
Let your personality out.
Don’t worry about criticism.
Write with zest!
8: Team with Super Heroes
2 words: The Avengers.
Augment your blogger superhero powers with those of other superheros.
Donna Merrill is a networking blogger supreme and content creating dynamo.
Enstine Muki specializes in making money online.
We all help each other out through:
- Promoting each other
- Commenting on each other’s blogs
- Featuring each other
…for the greater good of all aspiring bloggers.
Become a more powerful blogging big dawg – or dawgette – by helping blogging big dawgs.
9: The Most Important Tip: Follow Your Fun!
Blogging heroes differ starkly from comic heroes in 1 regard: we become dynamic, energized, inspired blogging beings by following our fun while most comic heroes follow a pained, serious sense of duty due to some terrible circumstance that they allowed to define their lives.
Your super powers flow from your joy.
Your god-like abilities flow from your passion.
I appeared on some of the most famous blogs on earth because contributors from these blogs LOVED my playful energy.
Not because I whipped myself into a rageful, tortured frenzy.
No need for something horrible to happen to become a renowned, prolific, inspired blogger.
Just follow your fun.
What can you talk about all day long?
Blog about it.
I’ve done some neat things online because…..I had fun doing them!
Do you think I could have written and self-published one, 6,000 word eBook every day for 90 days in a row through will power, straining, striving and busting my tuckus?
I have a passion for writing. I have fun blogging. I simply shared what I knew about blogging, about my travels and I jammed self help eBooks in there too because I wasn’t anxious about trying to churn out eBooks, how to earn sales through these streams, getting 45,000 five star reviews or any of those outcomes-based, super power dissipating outcomes.
Focusing on outcomes is like Kryptonite to your blogging super powers.
Your super powers flow from your super passions.
