As a blog owner, it is imperative that you make the most out of your digital assets. The phrase “build it and they will come” is meaningless in the world of content marketing. Creating great content is not enough to be visible in the online market. More specifically, it is not sufficient to generate natural links from other authoritative sites, which are critical to bringing in organic traffic and increasing your rankings in SERPs.
Why does writing have to be so hard? Not the actual “thinking up the words part”, but the “motivate yourself and follow through” part. It doesn’t matter if you are writing a novel, a blog post, or a technical manual. Having a few good tools to use can make all the difference in the world. These ten writing tools are probably the best I have personally found. They are sure to blow your creative mind.
Do you ever feel burnt out? I know exactly what you’re going through… Repeatedly delivering the goods with your blog content is time consuming and downright draining sometimes.
Just when you think you’ve got a handle on the whole thing, life kicks in and more pressing tasks get done. Is it delusional to think that one day it will all just fall into place? You’ll meet your blogging deadlines, your content will rock and you’ll have your lifestyle back. Of course something that awesome isn’t just going to happen by itself, you need to get proactive.
But it can happen. The best way to get the results you’re looking for from blogging, without working 16 hours a day, is to think about outsourcing tasks to other people. That way you can focus on what you are uniquely good at.

His grubby paws fingered the half eaten, greasy sausage. McMuffin crumbs. Syrupy pancake remnants. A thimble full of coffee.
Nothing was off limits for this sneaky San Jose scavenger.
During my recent trip to Costa Rica my wife Kelli and I chilled in the capital of San Jose for a day (we knew the way). We enjoyed breakfast at 1 of the 14 million McDonald’s fast food joints in the city. I was simultaneously stunned and entertained by the pillager of home fries. How could a guy be so bold? Clearly he wasn’t a desperate street guy. Clean-cut, dressed well (compared to me he was dressed to the nines) and even the way he picked through spare McD’s fare suggested he could afford to be…..picky. This bold buzzard taught me – and you – 3 blogging lessons that day.
I have read tons of articles that give us reasons and statistics why bloggers fail. Most of these articles focus on bloggers who are on the scene already and try to bring out some factors surrounding their blogging activities that can bring about failure. Not posting consistently or not having enough time are the other reasons I see being mentioned most often! In this post, let’s cover the 4 fundamental and “unmentioned” reasons bloggers fail. My hope is to help some who are about to start or who are at the verge of collapsing to take shape and possibly start off on a better foundation.
I recently visited a website and was drawn to it in a way that is not customary for me. Now, I’m trying to figure out what it was that was so appealing about the design. With my own sites, I try to keep them fresh, but also try not to change them so often that visitors start to wonder if they have arrived at the right place! After studying this particular website I realized what had drawn my attention. Are you ready for this? It was the fonts! It was hard to believe that it was not something fancy or technical or complicated, but simply a case of well-chosen fonts that were perfectly placed on the site.
