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.

Did You Learn Networking from Unskilled Networkers?

I wrote an entire eBook on how to network the right way as a blogger.

See me holding the paperback version below?

Every day, my social media and email mirror back poor networking tactics being taught to new or struggling bloggers. Bloggers may teach how certain networking techniques *work* but in the long run, silly tactics damage your reputation and lead to long term failure.

I see 5-10 networking mistakes or more in my email inbox daily. Obviously, unskilled networkers are teaching new, impressionable bloggers or struggling, desperate bloggers the wrong way to network.

Pay in Generosity or Money or Be a Struggling Blogging Stranger

I just checked my email.

One blogger told me to invoice him; I will place his guest post. We had no prior bond but he agreed to pay my fee. No hesitation. A serious blogger! He wrote a quality guest post. He freely released money. He gets featured on Blogging From Paradise.

He paid money to get featured on my blog.

I picked my generous blogging buddies as contributors for Blogging From Paradise. These skilled, heart-centered bloggers became my friends by helping me for years and asking for nothing.

These folks paid in generosity to get featured on my blog. Enstine is one such blogger: enjoy his guest post about making blogging blogging.

5 Tips for Choosing Your Blog Domain Name

“Ryan, you got an awesome blog domain name!”

“Ryan, your blog domain name is too long.”

“Ryan, you were lucky to get that cool blog domain name.”

I have heard it all since buying bloggingfromparadise.com in 2014. I believe I got a gem. Most bloggers agree.

I had to choose a new domain name and move on from my old blog and blogging niche. Pondering my lifestyle and the direction of my blog I could not nab a better name. After a quick look up I gobbled that sucker up for like $15 USD. Great deal.

An Aussie travel blogger emailed me the following day. He tried buying the domain name not 1 day prior. I beat him to it.
