I queried “blogging” on Twitter a few moments ago and saw this:

 

 

Out of 2 billion human beings who use Facebook, Facebook suggests the first related keyword to “blogging” as “Ryan Biddulph”.

 

Out of 400 million human beings who use Twitter, Twitter suggests “Ryan Biddulph” as the #2 person to follow for a “blogging” query.

 

Why?

 

I gave 15,000 hours of my life to HELPING OTHER PEOPLE become successful bloggers. That is it. This is the secret. Bloggers who influence Facebook and Twitter to be seen as influencers or authorities gave their lives to helping OTHER people become successful bloggers but for a long time. 15,000 hours is a long time. Helping people to blog for 15,000 hours has been fun and fulfilling but challenging, scary and uncomfortable. However, out of 2 billion human beings, if Facebook suggests that a “blogging” search registers a “Ryan Biddulph” keyword, as suggested keyword #1, #10 or #15, the 15,000 help hours influenced Facebook to list RB as someone to follow for bloggers.

 

Ditto for Twitter. I tweeted 600,000 times. Many tweets helped bloggers. Whether RB is #2, or #20 to follow, Twitter deems a helpful blogger who aided fellow bloggers as someone to follow about blogging.

 

I do not care about how I am doing or any of these results because my attention and energy is for helping you. I have fun helping people blog. Being helpful means everything to me. Being popular means nothing.

 

I do not care about how I am doing or any of these results because my attention and energy is for helping you. I have fun helping people blog. Being helpful means everything to me. Being popular means nothing. #blogging Click To Tweet

 

HOWEVER….being helpful to bloggers for a long time on Twitter and Facebook gives you greater exposure and the proper visibility to help more people become successful bloggers. HOWEVER, you need to care about helping people with 99% of your energy and care about being deemed as an influential on Twitter and Facebook with 1% of your energy.

 

Scan the blog post headline. Being seen as a blogging influencer on Facebook and Twitter is hard, smart, generous work executed over years. Influencing Twitter and Facebook as a blogging authority consumes years of your life. But if you plan to spend years living and breathing on planet earth the only logical choice is to do what feels fun largely in order to help people and succeed. Doing anything else is not a sane choice of how to spend your time.

 

Practical Tips

 

  • hold an intent: be a helpful blogger
  • help people for 1000s of hours through Twitter and Facebook
  • hit #blogging, #bloggingtips and #blogger hashtags
  • drop blogging, blogging tips and blogger or bloggers keywords seamlessly into a high percentage of your blog posts
  • answer questions generously, thoroughly, patiently and persistently on Facebook Groups related to blog and in response to #blogging hashtag tweets on Twitter
  • release attachment to being popularity by facing, feeling and releasing fears in your mind grounded in self-hate, worthiness and deserving thoughts-feelings
  • publish helpful blogging tips content to your blog; share on Twitter and Facebook
  • publish helpful blogging tips content as guest posts on top blogging tips blogs

 

Be generous, patient, persistent and work social media with targeting in mind. Use Facebook to help bloggers. Use Twitter to help bloggers.

 

Most of all, OTHER BLOGGERS and LOYAL READERS will have far more of an influence on being seen as a social media authority than via your singular efforts. I may tweet 30 #blogging tweets today. But after I go to bed, my blogging buddies and loyal followers will retweet and like my blogging tweets to hundreds of thousands of human beings via their Twitter followings. While I sleep, my blogging buddies do 100 times the amount of blogging work I could do, awake.

 

Do you understand why engaging in genuine blogger outreach is so important? Large, loyal blogging communities literally move Facebook and Twitter and their algorithms through the limitless power of love.

 

Bloggers like:

 

 

moved Twitter and Facebook algorithms by:

 

  • sharing my #blogging related content
  • engaging me via comments
  • offering me guest blogging opportunities

 

Facebook and Twitter algo’s spotted all the blogging content they shared through their accounts, or, commented on, through their accounts, and figured Ryan Biddulph was a blogger to follow. Plus 100s of other generous bloggers moved the algorithm by sharing and commenting on my Twitter and Facebook content related to blogging.

 

Help, help and help bloggers some more.

 

Influence Twitter and Facebook to see you as a blogging authority by serving bloggers for 1000’s of hours spanning years of your life.

    Hello Ryan,

    First and foremost, congratulations on your accomplishments!!

    What a fantastic and inspiring article this is. You’ve shown that hard work pays off. It takes a lot of hard work, sweat, and determination to make a dream come true; it doesn’t happen by chance. You’ve shown it. The newcomers like me are so grateful for your encouragement.

    Thanks again!

      Keep up the awesome work, Sushma. Blogging for a long time feels challenging sometimes but the blogging work involves doing simple things. Nothing abut this gig is complex. The key is riding out uncomfortable emotions manifest as fear. You can and will succeed.

      Based on your frequency of visiting my blog I can see you are doing the right things with the right energy during your beginning blogger days. I struggled horribly for such a long time because I avoided doing what you’re doing. Good for you.

    Hi Ryan,
    I agree with what you wrote. Our influence and links move through the internet when we promote on social media to let social media users learn our information. When we promote others on social media, we help followers even more.
    Thank you so much for including me in your post. I’m truly flattered and appreciative.
    Off to share!

      I find it amazing that how when we work together and pay little attention to the outcomes of helping others, how everything comes together so quickly. We all know that blogging is a team sport but only a few bloggers embody this knowing. You are one of them my friend. Let’s keep rising higher and higher to give new and aspiring bloggers the right example for doing this together.

      Working with versus against each other makes this journey easier and easier and easier over the long haul. I have no idea why bloggers choose to compete. Sounds like idiocy to me lol. Why go against someone and make your job more difficult when you can work with them and make your job easier? Sounds like common sense.

    Hi Ryan Thanks for sharing your work and experience with us. It is quite difficult to become a successful blogger sometimes. I haven’t created my own site yet as I don’t know how to get more traffic, but i do have some clients whom I have written for. I love travel and tech niches but I want to ask you. What niche do you suggest for blogging?

    • Ryan Biddulph says:
      at 1:21 pm

      Whatever niche you feel passionate about is the best niche for blogging Isa because that is the niche you work generously, patiently and persistently. Blogging for a long time is necessary before the money arrives. Travel and tech can both be prospering. But follow your passion to make the right choice for you. To me, it sounds like both of these niches feel like passionate endeavors for you. If that is the case then simply pick one and run with it. Specializing in one niche helps you stand out but trying to cover multiple niches will cause you to blend within the crowd because people love specialists but don’t trust generalists.

    Hi Ryan, thank you for the kind mention and you’ve been rocking it over there! Anytime we can collaborate with others it is like we have our own team. Like you said why not work together instead of against each other? We can only help each other to grow over the years πŸ™‚

      Lisa I totally agree. I have seen the influence you gained through Twitter and your blog. Watching you closely revealed the power of building a community by simply helping fellow bloggers and expecting nothing in return. This is like a team and as your presence and network expands it is similar to having a company working for you. But there is no salary. The only thing we pay as bloggers comes from our generosity and trust in making friends. I spend at least one to two hours every day going through my retweets one by one. Yesterday I spent 90 minutes replying to everybody by going straight through and doing nothing else. Really, this is like having a blogging company at your disposal. But I had to be really generous and I’m keeping it up these days to grow my friend Network and to strengthen our relationships. Thank you for your support and fabulous example my friend.

      Ryan
