Subj: How to make money and live free
If you don't happen to know who I am, please let me give you some backstory…
I make my living from writing a blog. I made more money from writing a blog than I ever made from any other business I was involved in.
Not only do I make more money blogging, but I have ultimate freedom to travel anywhere I want and basically do whatever I want.
I am not controlled by some job or by some company or by some boss. I am the boss and the business is me (I call this business model You, Inc.).
The blog business has been very good to me and I'd love to see the blog business be very good for you, too.
Personally, I love reading blogs. I prefer to read blogs over anything else. I prefer to read blogs than to read books, watch videos or listen to podcasts.
But I have found that for whatever reason, blogs are not popular at the moment. There seems to be a void of great blogs.
I believe that people do not truly understand the great power of the blog and the great opportunity that the blog can give them.
I believe people are very obsessed at this moment with video and with podcasting and they are neglecting the powerhouse that is the blog.
Many of these people think that the time of the blog has passed and now only video and audio can make money. They are very wrong, and this is great news for you.
Because people are overlooking the great power of the blog, there is now a huge opportunity to start the next great blog and make the next great fortune.
In this article I will show you 3 reasons why you should consider starting a blog.
I will be speaking from my own personal experience, nothing I am about to tell you is assumption or guessing. What I will reveal to you about the blog business comes directly from my own experience.
As a professional blog artist/happy traveler/rich man I have learned these 3 great secrets of the blog business…
3 Reasons You Should Consider Starting A Blog
1) You can work from anywhere in the world
The blog exists in the digital world. If you are a blog artist there is no office location you must work from and there is no city that you are chained to. You are free to come and go as you wish. All you need is WiFi and an internet device such as a laptop or a smartphone.
So many people in the world wish for freedom. I have traveled to many countries on this earth and people always say the same thing to me: “Wow, I really wish I could do what you do. I am like a bird in a cage but you are free to fly, I really admire that and wish I could do it.”
I always try to say the same thing to them: “You can do it if you want. There is nothing special about me other than my ability to go out on my own and actually try to accomplish something. If you actually ever tried to accomplish something you may be very surprised at the power and capability you possess. It is there, but you must use it. If you don't use it, you will lose it and you will stay in that cage yearning to fly free like me.”
At the moment of this writing, I am having fun in Ho Chi Minh City. Soon I will be boarding a plane to Penang, then to Bali, then to Lombok, then to Bangkok, and then I will go to an undisclosed paradise location in the blue mountains of _____ (sorry, I must keep paradise locations secret).
*Please keep in mind my plans change day by day because I have the freedom to change my plans any time I want. If you see my writing from a different location, it means I simply changed my mind about where to go.
2) Blogs are the #1 way people find information
Google is the most popular website in the world. When people go to google, they are looking for information. They “google” something and a list of websites appear to give them the information they are searching for. Most of those websites that appear are blogs.
You can test this out for yourself. Simply go to google and type in “how to…..” and pick something you'd like to learn. When the list of websites appear, open up the first 10 websites. How many of those first 10 results are blogs? You will see for yourself nearly all of the results google gives you are blogs.
Nearly all of the top websites on google are blogs but for some reason many people dismiss the power of the blog. This is their great mistake and it is your great fortune. There is huge and ample opportunity for new blog artists and there is barely any competition, this I can assure you.
People are craving information today like they never have before, but the information they crave simply isn't there. After the first page of google, the results diminish dramatically. You can be the person who provides the information to them (via your blog).
In return for providing the information that people crave, you can have the ability to make a very good living and be free to do as you wish. The blog business is very easy, just give people what they want. What they want is information (this is “the information age” after all). People want information but the information isn't there. In the business world this is what we call “opportunity”.
3) You can get filthy rich as a blog artist
Many people still believe blogs cannot make money even though blogs are constantly on the first page of google. Blogs are what appear in the results for the most popular website in the world (google) but blogs are still a hidden source of money.
Take it from my experience that there is an incredible amount of money that can be made from blogs. In the same amount of time it takes to earn a college degree, I was able to earn a million dollars from blogging.
There is no limit to how much money you can make from blogging. It is up to you and how hard you are actually willing to work. Many people say they are willing to work hard until they realize that hard work is exactly what is required to ever become rich and successful.
It is much easier to go get a job and make an hourly or monthly wage than it is to create your own wage from your blog. This is why there is so much opportunity as a blog artist, because the majority of people will quit at the very first sign of hard work.
If you provide the only source of good information about a particular topic then the people who are looking for that information will only have one choice where to go: your blog.
The person who does not quit will have one of the only websites available with the required information. Where else will the people go? Stick around and they will go to you because there will be nowhere else.
It does not take a genius to build a million dollar blog business. It simply takes a patient person who is not interested in quitting.
To briefly recap, these are the 3 reasons you should consider starting a blog:
There is a lot of opportunity in the blog industry, there is ultimate freedom in the blog industry, and there is the capability to make a lot of money from writing a blog.
So what should you write about?
All people in the world want the same 3 things: health, wealth, and happiness.
If you can show them tips, tricks, and simple ways to find health, wealth, and happiness you will always have a business model that never goes out of style.
How do you personally find health, wealth, and happiness? You have to work for it. But when you find it, you've got the knowledge forever.
Many people would call this an “evergreen business model” but I like things simple. I just say How to Start a Blog That Makes Money Forever or, in other words, give people what they want.
Is blogging easy?
Building a million dollar blog business isn't easy, 99 out of every 100 people quit, and your journey of a thousand miles will seem long.
But for the one out of a hundred who does not quit, success comes running to that person.
Always remember that it is NOT POSSIBLE to not succeed if you simply do not quit. Quitting is the only way you ever fail.
This is the #1 tip I try to give anyone and everyone: Success will find you if you stay the course.
If you quit you will never find success no matter what you do. If you do not quit, you will eventually become successful.
How can you start a blog today?
If you would like to start a blog I recommend you use the Badnet service.
When you use Badnet, you can have your blog set up by the Bold & Determined administration team (the Badmin) and you will also get 4 additional reports I wrote that show you specific ways to make your blog professional (make money).
The Badnet service is free to use, you only need to pay for your website hosting. You even get a free domain name for the first year.
The website hosting is a small fee you will pay no matter how you start your blog, so the Badnet install service is basically a “no brainer” for anyone who wants to start a blog and build a business out of it.
Badnet costs you nothing extra and gives you so much in return.
I would say good luck but you do not need luck, you need only patience and perseverance.
Good luck is what people in a cage wish for, people who fly free make their own luck.
Until next time.
