How to Become a Pro Blogger by Being Quite Imperfect

The Perfection Curse cripples most bloggers.

Thank goodness I never fell into this category.

I am all for looking professional, conveying a trusted brand image and being a blogger 100% committed to building a blog the right way. But I am very imperfect. Ok; I am quite imperfect. Much of what I do makes little sense to most bloggers.

I barely have an email list. My writing style makes purists cringe. I broke so many rules I may as well be blogging off the grid metaphorically, which is fitting because I do so sometimes, geographically.

Never Follow Blogging Advice from these 3 People

Before you become a successful blogger you need to learn how to blog.

Learning how to blog seems confusing at first because a torrent of blogging advice seems to knock on your cyber door daily. Google, Facebook, Twitter and various online forums provide you with ample blogging advice but is it good advice? Or is it bad blogging advice?

I struggled mightily for many years because I followed bad blogging advice from bad bloggers. My fault. But you do not need to make the same mistake. A few distinct types of bloggers set off red flags when you notice these individuals.

4 Tips to Not Waste Time Online (How to become more productive)

Time is one of your most precious online business resources.

Unfortunately, most online entrepreneurs squander their time like it is unlimited resource. Most online failure roots itself in wasting your time on tasks that do not matter.

Some folks give their attention and energy to business-building tasks but waste too much time on a specific task. I just wrote and self-published my 124th ebook in about 8 hours, spanning over 2 days. I know entrepreneurs who spend weeks or even months writing their ebook before publishing it. This is insane to me. It’s a simple ebook.

Time wasting occurs in many forms.

Do You Undervalue Your Blogging Real Estate?

I have never owned a home.

Nor do I have a desire to own a home, as long as I circle the globe as a digital nomad.

The man who designed the concept of duty free shops you see in airports actually comes from the same birth town as me in the United States.

He was worth $5 billion at his wealthiest and never owned a home or car, circling the globe, living with friends and sometimes renting apartments. Even as I make more dough, I see myself living the same way.

How Should You Treat Begging Bloggers?

Some bloggers mean well but their fear of loss – and heavy attachment to you – leads to blogging begging.

You know what I mean.

Perhaps a blogger mentions you on their blog. Maybe the blogger interviews you or features you on their blog. Rather than feel good about the kind act, their kindness turns into greed, desperation and a pulsating fear that you need to help them in return because they helped you. This is not kindness. This is a transaction you never agreed to.

I thank every blogger who features me – within reason – but I ignore anybody who begs or bugs me for a mention on my blog, for a Retweet, or for a Facebook Share of the post through which I was featured or mentioned or interview. Why? I ignore fear to live in love and success.

Why Top Bloggers Are Like Super Heroes!

I love a good Marvel movie.

DC movies reel me in too.

Comic book movies and TV shows tell inspired tales. Someone faces some terrible adversity but grows into something infinitely powerful through their trials and tribulations.

Humanity tends to love comic super heroes because we want the unlimited power of these god-like creatures.

Some top bloggers walk a similar path to comic book super heroes.

I may not fly around in an iron suit or fight vigilantes by night, but I can honestly say that being an influential blogger took me on a super hero type journey.
