I love to blog! Seriously, it’s an addiction. I remember years ago Rich Taylor told me this one little nugget that stuck with me for so many years. He said it like this…Stick with something you love to do, for 10 years and you’ll be laughing.
Well I love online business. I love to blog. I love personal growth…So it came naturally. Write some content, consistently overtime and you’ll open yourself up to some awesome opportunities.
A few days ago, I dug into my two blogs to see the history of how much I post and how it’s helped my business over the years. Here’s some crazy stats…
My first blog was Hit Exchange News, and I started it 13 years ago in 2003. Since then, I have posted 523 pieces of content (and actually there is quite a few more but I lost the original database….lol Important note, always back up your blogs!) But let’s take 523 blog posts over 13 years is about an average of 40 posts a year. That’s a little less than one a week but you get the picture…
Here’s what that has done for my business;
– It’s made me a thought leader and expert in the world of traffic exchanges
– I have written a published book from the posts and ideas within the blog
– I have also authored 3 extremely popular ebooks because of the blog
I’m not writing this to show off, just wanted to show you the POWER of being consistent with your blogging. The doors start to open up, big time!
As for this blog, Plus 1 Daily, it started in September of 2015.
Since it started we have posted 319 (this post will be 320) articles and pieces of content. There are infographics, doodles, videos, live streams and training from all the blog posts and no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The blog also is responsible for Plus 1 Success – Our 30 day action plan for success, and an entire brand that will continue to add value to subscribers for years to come.
You see…That’s the trick. Consistency!
This is how you build a better blog, pick a nice and WRITE. Create content weekly to start, but then get into the habit of doing it every couple of days and before you know it….Bam! You have years of great content and the opportunities start to really appear for you.
But it all starts with ONE POST….One decision to roll up your sleeves and get to work!
