Each time you stop by to read yet another epic blog post from that “A” bloggers blog, there are always one or many takeaways from it.
Great advices, practical measurable information to turn around the fortune of any blog to a profitable height.
- why do you read a blog post?
- What is in it for me?
- The last post I read, what do I make out of it?
- Am I just consuming information?
I mean, do you really put the lesson learned in to action?
Daily small actions, makes for big success.
Good, is okay to read a post on how to drive targeted free traffic to your blog and one of the recommendation is to guest post.
The next big thing you do is find a popular blog, pitch the blogger for guest article, write your post, submit and luckily, it get published.
It turned out not as expected. But what happens next? You never attempt for another guest post. You do it once and expect the result to be that great.
You read that post on how to make your Twitter updates go viral, and there you go; start tweeting all day.
Good, that’s is. Doing something once won’t yield the expected result. Only if you committed to regular planning, implementations, and consistency, would give what you want.
The truth is most of us doesn’t need another piece of information to get right our success, what we need is utilize to fullest the once we’ve already learned.
You don’t need another blog post, all you need is to start working daily and taking actionable steps towards achieving your goals.
The problem with most people is, they don’t really think through on what they’ve learned or read so far, they just scan through the words and pages and move on to the next post.
That’s a pretty bad way to learn.
You don’t need millions of ideas to make a hit, you only need a single working idea to hit your target.
I once read a post by Darren, he said to get his first eBook ready. He had to devote 15minutes every morning to writing for the course of the book. He didn’t sit down at a go and wrote the whole pages, no. It took small daily actions to complete the book overtime.
Good Intention is not enough.
Of course you read the post with the basic intention of finding lasting solution to your immediate obstacle. But the truth is, you never implements the tactics and strategies mentioned in it more than a day.
Have you stay on course and focus on a laid out plan for at least a month? To see if it really working according to its author.
Countless of times you tune into to a popular blog and read all about how they got there. Your intention was right, you know exactly what you want. You know why you had wanted to read the piece of information; To replicate his success, right?
You even bought his most popular eBook where he laid it out bare open how he made his first $100,000 online. But what happen after you finish reading all these stuffs?
You tried some of his tricks and tactics for a day or two and when it seems things not working like you were told, you trash everything you’ve labour hard to read.
Consistency is key to every successful end in life. Your good intention set out to digest every single information will not be enough to make things happen.
You need to do more than just having good intention, you need to work practically on what you’ve read. You need to start taking regular actions that lead towards success.
Make a plan, stick to it.
There is nothing like any plan. You need to map out your plan that work along with your goals.
Your plan must not be too rigid for you to execute. And it shouldn’t just be anybody’s plan. Evaluate yourself, analyze the situation at hand before making your plan.
Don’t just read a blog post, there should be reason why you must read it if you have a plan already going for you.
Part of which maybe;
If your goal is to post 5 articles a week, then map out plan on how to make it happen. If you don’t have a laid out plan before the week start, you definitely not going to meet your targets.
Is not enough to have that gear push up inside you and say oh! Am going to have 50 blog post at the end of the month without the tactics and strategies in place to make it a reality.
If you read a blog post that teaches how to write an article people wants to read and you know deep down you that occasionally do people really read your post.
Don’t just read the post along and nodding your head in acceptance with the authors point; bookmark the page, print it out if that’s what it will takes to have the post by your side always.
Bring out 20,15 minutes of your time each day to practice what the author teaches in the post. Give yourself time to work on it for at least 2,3 weeks to measure progress.
Only an attitude like this will move you from one achievement to another.
Big Things Comes In Small Package.
Why do you have to care so much about blog post?
Something freely available everywhere on the internet. Isn’t it? Yes, that the irony of it.
There are smart blogs on marketing, self improvement, blogging, social media marketing, content marketing etc that when you listen and put their advices into action, you’re definitely equipped with best resource material any consultancy firm could have charged $200 an hour for.
The fact that these information are mere blog post doesn’t take away the quality of the writer or his expertise.
We are lucky to be born in this age; information is the most cheapest commodity on the face of earth today.
Take advantage of it, next time you read a blog post that deal with one major problem you’re facing, don’t just read on, take note of what you read and put the lesson learned in to practice.
