Are You In Blogging Survival Mode?

My most difficult blogging obstacle to overcome was leaving blogging survival mode to move into abundance mode.

I tried to use my blog to:

  • pay bills
  • put food on the table
  • put a roof over my head

I did not blog to thrive. I blogged to survive.

I vibed mainly from an energy of fear, lack and limitation. Life was difficult. I struggled financially. I struggled to gain traffic and profits.

Why?

How to Gracefully Handle Rejection

Many bloggers believe I am lucky, gifted or talented, the recipient of good fortune. But what if I told you my first blogging course – see the image below – registered 8,000 page views before someone bought it? 8,000 rejections.

What if I told you my first eBook – before I created Blogging From Paradise – sold 4 copies in 4 months? Talk about rejections. I promoted the eBook tirelessly.

1 Difficult Idea for Folks to Accept about Happy Successful Bloggers

“Ryan, you always smile!”

Only because I faced, embraced, felt, grieved and cried out severe fear, pain and heartache by facing incredibly tough blogging obstacles.

“I can see why you are so happy Ryan! If I circled the globe and lived in paradises, I’d be happy too.”

I only circled the globe because:

  • I continued blogging after seeing 3 visitors daily stop by my old blog, for months
  • I kept promoting my blogging audio course even though I did not make my first sale until the sales page registered 8,000 page views
  • I decided to write the Blogging From Paradise series of eBooks after a prior, failed eBook I wrote from a different blog sold only 4 copies in 4 months

Do you know how terrible how terrible I felt after these failures? I cried. I punched walls, almost breaking my hand.

Do You Feel Embarrassed or Excited to Share Your Blog with People?

I have a confession to make; I was a former shy blogging guy.

I felt ashamed to share my blog with friends and family. Some friends teased me. Some family members suggested I get a job to pay the bills since my blogging career had not taken off yet.

Feeling shy, ashamed and flat out embarrassed to share that I was a blogger created a horrible sensation in my being. I wanted to hide and I also wanted to hide the fact that I was a blogger.
