Twig and berries.
His mini junk peered at me through tightie whities.
What should I have done? *Not* notice the neighbor in Bali who greeted me underwear first?
He walked into the street with a Fruit of the Loom smile and warm embrace. Thank goodness; we did not cross the streams. If ya get my drift.
But the man did teach me a blogging lesson; how to be memorable by being comfortable in your own skin.
Blog From Your Heart Not From Your Head
Have you ever read a lead in like that to a blogging tips post? Of course not. Most blogging tips bloggers are sane.
But most blogging tips bloggers blog from their heads, not their hearts, planning everything out, robotic-style, mechanically moving through stiff motions to interest readers, grows lists and to profit.
The secret to blogging success: blogging from your heart, not from your head.
Blogging from the heart-love moves you away from head-mind-fear, meaning your message is fun, light, loving and memorable. Meaning you weave heart-felt tales from day to day living. Meaning you share client struggles and success stories in genuine fashion. Meaning you connect with readers. Meaning you succeed.
I only write these bizarre tales and link the funny stories to blogging because I blog from my heart, not my head. I do not fear being weird, adding humor, adding curses, adding a different angle, to my work. When you blog mainly from your heart you blog from energies of love and fun, making fear beat a hasty retreat.
Of course, blogging from the heart is the secret to successful blogging because blogging from an energy of love harmonizes you with:
- profitable ideas
- loving readers
- prospering circumstances
- inspired action
Most bloggers do not blog from heart-love-fun. Nope.
Most bloggers are…..Robo Bloggers.
Most bloggers blog from mind, Robo Blogging Style.
Here’s how writing a post feels to Robo Bloggers:
- start blog post with hook to grab attention; check!
- share value in post; check!
- grow email list; check!
- end with call to action; check!
- move on to next activity; check!
- “Thank you for your cooperation” ~ Said in Robo Cop Voice
Sure you see worldly success and have some fun following robotic steps. Nothing wrong with blogging primarily through mind.
BUT……moving away from heart toward mind draws you away from love-fun-prospering toward fear-tension-struggle. Most bloggers have a helluva time, struggling and failing, because they try to *think* their way through blogging versus *feeling* their way through blogging, ignoring their All Knowing And Loving Intuition and listening to their bitchy little ego chatter.
Blogging from the heart feels like eating a meal with soul, flavor and deliciousness. Blogging from the head feels like eating cardboard masquerading as rice cakes.
Example Of Blogging From The Heart
I wrote a colorful eBook once well off of the blogging tips beaten path.
When I went on my eBook writing tear my heart said: “Yo; write that shit. It’d be fun.” (My intuition is from Northern New Jersey, like me.)
So I wrote it.
My head would have said: “The only folks searching for that term would be perv farang.” Not aspiring bloggers. In most cases. But since I do most stuff from a love-fun energy and few things from fear-mind-scarcity-head, I wrote the eBook, not worrying about outcomes.
People seem to think I am changing the world of blogging, especially in the blogging tips niche. I am just listening to my heart, not my head.
Logic Is A Lasso
Logic is a lasso, roping you in when you just want to be free.
My logical mind said; start off with a pain point in this post, playing it safe. Connect with your readers.
My heart said; lead off with a personal story of small Balinese wieners and tiny testicles. I honored my heart. I let go the logic lasso. You will remember this post. Likely, you will buy the eBook too.
But more than anything you will bring this lesson with you when ya sit down to write your next blog post. Maybe you add a light personal story to the post. Or perhaps you feel the fear of being vulnerable through your blog, and do it anyway, sharing failures or struggles from your heart even though your head-mind-logic tells you from an energy of fear...”Don’t do it! It’ll make you look weak, like a failure, fraud.”
I say: “Balinese nut up! Blog from your heart. Honor your intuition.”
The longest blogging journey from the world seems to be from head to heart but it’s really not that long a trip.
Decide today to blog a little less from convention and more from fun, love and playfulness.
Become a successful blogger by blogging from your heart.
