5 Fundamentals of Successful Blogging
When I lived in Fiji, Costa Rica and Bali I happened to be in each spot during mild earthquakes.
In Fiji and Costa Rica, I had no idea the earth actually shook. I only found out about the quake later from locals.
In Bali, I actually felt the glass windows rattle. Different deal.
In Fiji and Costa Rica, I and my wife Kelli were living in homes on rock-solid granite which literally blocked the earth’s shaking and shimmying. But in Bali we were living in a house amid the soft, pliable, unstable rice fields, so we felt the full effects of the earth shaking and quaking.
Blogging is no different. If you build your blog on rock solid, proven fundamentals you will not feel the stress or worry of a huge Google algorithm change, or a Facebook update, or if you haven’t made money through your blog 6 months.
But if you skip these fundamentals you will get shaken out, like building your blogging house on quicksand.
Follow these tips to build your blog on proven fundamentals to create a rock solid foundation for your campaign.
1) Blog Mainly for Fun[bctt tweet=”Blog Mainly For FUN!” username=”@informer_fox”]
You just Blog mainly for fun to detach some from outcomes.
Be less concerned with blogging profits, traffic, comments and social shares.
Be more focused on blogging your passion. Profits follow the passion. Finances follow the fun.
By blogging mainly to have fun, the alleged work is play, and at that, the work is the reward. Everything else is extra or a bonus.
Taking this attitude is the clearest way to build your blog on a rock solid foundation.
Your passion fuels your blogging journey.
Pick a niche that feels fun to blog about. Make the work the reward because when you love learning and developing your craft, you will have immense success online.
