Long Term Blogging Goals

Friday, July 24th, 2009

longtermblogginggoals1As the Internet business moves on it’s become very apparent that the competition is getting better and better.

I’ve been managing 8 blogs for the last year (I got rid of quite  a few) and it’s really too much to handle if you want to do it right.

The good news is that no matter what, if you write good content on a fairly routine schedule, you will make money. How much money depends on; the niche, how well you choose keywords, and if you stick to it.

I don’t panic anymore if a blog or two doesn’t get a post for awhile – as long as the writing is pretty good, and it’s 100% original of course. It takes a good while to build a good blog up and I know that this frustrates some bloggers to no end – however, the rewards are too great for quitting.

You DO have to like writing, and typing on a computer for an hour or so each day. If you don’t really like writing, you won’t make it – that’s just a fact.

You need allot of posts to get the search engines presenting you high in the search results – A TON OF POSTS.

Keeping It Clean For Awhile

One of my blogs helps people with mental issues like anxiety and panic attacks and it doesn’t have a single Google ad or affiliate link on it. I chose to do this because I don’t want the search engines or visitors to be turned off or away. I’m going to wait until it has over 500 people a day before I introduce ads and money links.

I tell newcomers to blogging now to at least get a blog started and keep it going even if it’s not getting allot of traffic. Why? Because after years of writing good quality posts they could have a few thousand dollars a month coming in. Wouldn’t that be comforting when your are retired and out the work force.

So keep up your blogs. Even if it’s only one post per month. Someday it might be your entire income.

My Top 10 “Things I would do differently if I had to start my blog again”

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

Zulit Top TenWhen you first launch a blog, your domain is stranded in the desert of cyberspace. It takes some time to get things going. You will have days when you’re all charged up, and others when you might feel like throwing in the towel. You may hear about blog owners that make great sums of money from their daily blogging, and at the same time read about bloggers that make only enough money to buy a cup of coffee once a day. Below is list that outlines the top 10 things I’d do differently if I had to start my blog again.

Money Blogging Tip #1 – Avoid focusing only on the money

This is going to sound ridiculous to some, but try to avoid focusing on the money. If your only goal is to make money, your frustration at times will be intense, and this may lead to your blogging demise. What you need to do is concentrate on writing articles of content that reflect your feelings, experience, beliefs, and understanding of a familiar subject. It turns out that you can make money blogging, and that’s super, but you won’t make a great deal of money overnight. It can take months or years (depending on the subject matter) before you start to make money enough to write home about. The only way you can ever make blogging lucrative, is by consistently pumping out relevant material. To do that you’ll likely need to love blogging. (unless you hire someone to blog for you — but for this article I’m going to assume you are simply an individual who is wading into cyberspace on your own)

Money Blogging Tip #2 – Blog about your first passion

Your blog can be about fishing, sports, cars, boats, hobbies, or just a subject you are passionate about. Zulit.com is mostly about the pursuit of financial freedom because that is something I’m passionate about. That may not be your cup of tea, and it may not be a subject you know much about. On your first blog you need to focus on a topic that you are intimate with — topic or subject that you have life experience with. This is sort of cliche in the blogosphere, but it can never be overstated. Later, after your first blog is well advanced, you can certainly branch off into niche blogging, or product blogging.

Money Blogging Tip #3 – Avoid being intimidated by power bloggers – be inspired!

One of the first things you’ll notice when you begin blogging, is that there are some extremely powerful blogs that have what I call “Internet Seniority”. These are blogs managed, owned, and operated, by experienced bloggers that started blogging years ago. They have grown a substantial archive of content, earned the respect of a substantial following (subscribers), earned an impressive Google page rank, and have a massive amount of traffic per day, month, and year. Don’t be intimidated. These experienced bloggers started just like you are now. They wrote their first post at one time as well. They had no traffic, no subscribers, no content, and in many cases no direction. They found their direction in time, just like you will. (more…)
