Before you dive into my latest blog post just a reminder to grab my newest audio book here.
A tiny, iridescent buzz saw whizzed by my dome.
When I lived in the remote jungles of Costa Rica for 6 weeks I saw brilliant hummingbirds work the flowers by the house. Said hummers flew by my head at the speed of sound, it seemed.
Forget trying to follow their wing beats; the fastest hummingbirds beat their wings at 80 beats per second, a blinding rate not detectable to the naked human eye.
How to Become a Successful Blogger
Picture 46,000 Ryan Biddulphs wrapped up in a few ounces of feathers with a cute little barbed, forked tongue, and you have the energy of one of these hummingbirds. These little guys show that getting your energy right first helps increase your blogging success mad fast.
Hey; becoming a successful blogger takes years. Ain’t no short cuts here. But if you do it right, you will experience a steady, quite quick, meteoric rise while your blogging neighbors either struggle terribly or find success in fits and starts, seeing months or years or seemingly slow growth, a little burst, then, nada happening for long periods of time.

Let’s dive in my little sweet robbins, shall we?
1: Do Your Energy Work
I know you want to beat the feces out of me by now.
All I gab about all day long; energy-work.
Put 2 and 2 together though. Seeming mere mortal goes from being Little Debbie Gobbling, depressed, fired, bloated security guard to Amazon Best Selling, Island Hopping, Pro Blogger
Did a delightful little blogging fairy sprinkle blogging pixy dust of my square-jawed dome to facilitate my transition? Hell no.
Did I wake up one day to see my life dramatically changed from laid off, broke, ruddy security guard to a guy who changes time zones like most folks change their minds? Hello no.
Did I mindlessly work my ass off to go from security guard to pro blogger? No. Awwwww hell no. Water buffalo work hard. Beasts of the field work hard. Human being bloggers should elevate their energy by purging fears to do more from love so they can be energetic dynamos.
Stuff to Be
Everything you do online is the byproduct of your energy. Every moment you vibe either predominantly from Love, or fear. Managing your energy through:
- eating a nutritious diet
- doing stuff like jumping into icy cold showers
helps you increase your blogging success dumb quickly because you will:
- face, embrace and release blogging fears
- become more fearless
- become more generous
- be more detached
- have more fun, so you stand out like a gringo in the remote jungles of Costa Rica, and so you develop a world renowned blog and brand
The quickest way to increase your blogging success fast is to follow a morning energy ritual on waking. You got mine above. 1 hour or longer. Daily.
One look at the hundred plus eBooks I wrote or 1000 plus guest posts I wrote or the Facebook Live Broadcasts that make the Energizer Buddy look like a stoner coming off a 46 doughnut, carbo crash, you kinda get I do things mainly from an energy of fun, and love….not scarcity, and fear.
My blogging is growing Okey Dokey, methinks.
2: Pay Money to Hire a Skilled Blogging Coach or to Buy Blogging Courses
Pay money to hired skilled blogging coaches to point out your blind spots, so you can see these blind spots, address these blind spots, and improve your blog, and so you can do so quickly, and quite easily.
Coaches need coaches. Pro bloggers need coaches. Newbie bloggers need coaches. Mediocre bloggers need coaches. Dog bloggers need coaches (meaning, dogs who blog, or, blogging dogs).
If you wanted to study rocket science, or brain surgery, only those with the intelligence and deftness of a drunk stable boy who’d been kicked in the head 72 times by a prized jackass would say to themselves:
“Me think good idea to study rocket science or brain surgery through free blog post alone. Me think me Captain Caveman instead of drunk stable boy. Me’s think I learn really good by put together 34 free blog posts with no pattern or in no order.”
Hey Cro Magnon, or Mullet Wearer of Hats Worn Slightly Askance, buy the freaking course so you can learn blogging:
- in the proper environment (a blogging course is like a cyber classroom)
- through proper formatting (courses lay out, in simple step by step fashion, how to follow said steps to achieve your blogging goals)
- from that really good, accomplished, abundant feeling of “I paid money for this course so I am super excited to sit down and learn this blogging stuff, right now.”
Buying courses cuts your blogging learning curve by years, accelerating your blogging success. Learning through online courses is like sitting in a classroom learning from a teacher working off of a syllabus, versus trying to dig through a free newspaper for the last 5 years, trying to piece together articles that can solve your blogging problems.
Hands down, my blogging course students, far and away, get the most value from my Blogging From Paradise brand. Instead of trying to piece together tidbits of free content, they purchase cohesive, comprehensive blueprints to reach their blogging goals.
I have created a few courses to help you reach your blogging dreams.
You can buy the courses here:
3: Write Your Ass Off
Write 1000 words daily in a Word document.
The number one blogging skill is writing.
Write daily. Gain confidence and clarity in your writing voice. Drive traffic to your blog. Land more guest posts on top blogs. Increase your blogging success exponentially.
4: Don’t Be Shy; Monetize
“I recall the first time I picked up a paycheck from my 9-5 job. I felt embarrassed. A little ashamed. Felt awkward. I felt bad accepting money from the company because hey, it’s their hard earned money they are paying me. They could have spent it anywhere, but they spent it on me.” ~ No Employee In The History of Civilization
Why do you feel so bad about receiving a neutral energy called money through your blog when no human being in existence feels bad about accepting money as an employee?
One of the most bizarre, warped and flat out bat shit limiting beliefs many bloggers cling to regarding their blogs is the common money block aka fear of accepting an energy called money for service rendered.
After reading some blogger’s affiliate disclosures, you would have thought said bloggers personally administered their own homemade colonoscopy consisting of a PVC pipe coated in rusty nails and fire ants, to their readers, they feel so damn bad about receiving money via sales made on their blogs.
Monetize your blog immediately, if you have not done so already. Ask people to hire you (hire me bloggers who need coaching). Ask people to buy your stuff. Every post. It is just money. It is only money.
Succeed more quickly with your blog. Get comfortable with receiving money for services rendered.
5: Ask Quality Questions
“Can a drunk opossum make $54,000,000 on Adsense on a Blogspot blog?” ~ Quora User
As a rule, struggling bloggers ask really stupid questions and as a rule, struggling bloggers follow terrible advice. As a rule, a struggling blogger gets phenomenal, proven advice from pro bloggers, ignores the advice, then asks the same question 30 times over the next year, claiming that nobody gives them good advice and is only after their money.
Ask clear, simple, quality questions of skilled, pro, established bloggers. Pay strict attention to the answers. Take notes on the answers. Study the answers. Put the answers into action for the next 6 to 12 months. Increase your blogging success mad quickly.
