How To Fool People Into Thinking You Are A Blogging Cyborg

I am human.

If you cut me, I bleed.

But some folks don’t believe me.

A growing collection of people believe I am a blogging cyborg. An unstoppable, mechanical robot with 1 purpose in mind: to create and connect so I can help lift up the blogosphere.

Appearing to be a blogging robot has its perks; my brand awareness has never been greater. Profits flow to me with increasing ease. My list grows steadily. I have saved money by not having to buy food (cyborg humor).

So even though I have proven I am not living human tissue over metal endoskeleton – or have I? ย – I want to share tips with you to help you create the prospering illusion that you are a blogging cyborg, an inspiring cyber robot that is omnipresent in your niche.

1: Blog Mainly For Fun

I woke up from a late afternoon nap a few minutes ago.

2 minutes later I was writing this guest post.


I love what I do. I have fun blogging. So I make time to guest post, to comment on blogs, to publish posts to my blog and to have loads of fun on this journey.

Ever notice how those bloggers who seem to be robotic in their persistence and devotion to their craft have SO much fun blogging? This is the exact reason why they are persistent, boundless balls of energy. They blog mainly for fun so build their days around doing what they have fun doing, meaning they spend a great deal of time and energy blogging.

2: Take Care Of Your Body

The only way I appear to be “half-man/half-machine” to some admirers is because I take great care of my body. No way in Hades I could write 2-4 guest posts daily in addition to following my strict blog post reading and blog commenting schedule, work my businesses, promote my eBooks and audio books and still circle the globe unless I:

  • slept (or stayed in bed) for 8-10 hours daily
  • exercised for 30 to 60 minutes daily
  • meditated for 20 minutes daily
  • jumped into an icy cold shower daily
  • stretched daily
  • napped daily
  • took a short break from blogging every working hour
  • spent a significant amount of time offline daily

Take care of your meat suit. Keeping healthy and being fit are 2 prerequisites to slaying it online because if you don’t care for your home it will break down….quickly.

3: Guest Post

Guest post on top blogs from your niche to both increase your visibility online and to develop the rep of being….inhuman.

Some cyborg-like bloggers such as Christopher Jan Benitez do a fine job gobbling up guest posting opportunities left and right.

He is on point sharing helpful blogging insights on a wide array of blogging tips themed blogs. He also creates the perception of being everywhere while he inspires newbie and struggling bloggers to build rocking blogs.

  • build friendships with top bloggers
  • write 1000 words daily in a Word document for practice
  • gain invites to guest post on top blogs

4: Publish Helpful Comments On Top Blogs

Publishing helpful comments on top blogs is one way to look like a cyber blogging organism.

I recall one German blogger who way back in the day said I was just like clockwork. Meaning he could pretty much set his watch to when I would show up and comment on his blog.

Blog commenting works well because there are virtually zero barriers to entry with good old BC. No gatekeepers to woo. No pitching. Just publishing a helpful, thoughtful, valuable comment that pops up on top blogs from your niche.

If your comments aren’t showing up after 2-3 days (wait a little because bloggers like myself moderate all comments) simply send a nice email to your fellow blogger asking if they can fish your comment out of the Spam folder.

  • address your fellow blogger by name
  • craft a 2-4 paragraph comment related to the post
  • read the post
  • comment on top blogs from your niche

5: Dive Into Your Fears Daily

Transparency Alert: This cyborg fears.

The Terminator was a mindless, fearless killing machine.

I am not so lucky.

I fear:

  • working too hard
  • not working enough
  • not being in enough places at once
  • not spending my time effectively

in little moments, for seconds, or maybe a bit longer, because I am human. But I feel the fear and do it anyway. Meaning, when these fears pop up in my mind, I feel the fear, embracing it and then move in the direction of my predominant intent: having fun.

If you want to appear to be an unstoppable blogging robot who appears to be all over the place you better cultivate the habit of diving into your deepest fears regularly.

Your Turn

What tips can you add to this list? How do you fool folks into thinking you are a blogging machine?

  2. Awesome tips Ryan.

    It takes persistence and will to do what you do. I see you on many blogs – commenting, guest posting… it’s great.

    Time to take a few notes from your script buddy.

  3. I’m pretty sure that anyone reading the title can’t resist her/himself from clicking it, even she/he is not a blogger.

    Awesome humorous yet insightful article ! thanks !

  4. Hi Ryan,
    Really, simple and great post, I like authorโ€™s writing skills. The article is well described and useful for everyone, keep writing articles like this. Thanks

  5. Hello Ryan,
    This is really cool post. You’re human but you works like cyborg- you’re a great blogger.

    Thanks for this piece of advice.

  6. Hey Ryan,

    Most of the bloggers talk about not getting time to write a blog post. I guess, If one can manage his/her things, like the way you are doing, can easily manage your time and blog. ‘Love for the job’ is a significant factor.

    Great to read your post on Enstine’s blog. Keep up the good work.



  7. Hey Ryan,

    Great informative blog, loved the way you explain and describe every information.
    I enjoyed reading this post. Great tips in creating an impression with great content.
    Hope to see you forward.

  8. Hello Ryan,

    For me you are a kind human being with a lovely smile on face. Yes, When we do something pro actively people think that how he/she manage the things and speculate wierd things about you. Blogging is really a fun. You don’t have any time bonds, you don’t need to complete the projects in a limited time frame.

    Blogging keeps us alive by giving us the opportunity to work a independent Enviorment. You can write your blog posts by sleeping in your bed. All you need is a laptop in front you and a Internet connection.

    Keep Smiling my friend:)

  9. Christopher is everywhere! I read a lot of his articles. Yours too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t believe you sleep 8-10 hrs long, you even travel the world and write blog posts! There’s nothing you can’t do!

  10. Hey Ryan
    Great post. Sitting in front of the Computer screen just makes the mind so heavy. It is really important for anyone to take care of his/her health. I tried to take 8-10 hours sleep but always fails. Thanks to Youtube and the internet. They just keep me busy.
    Talking about Commenting. I think Blog commenting makes a virtual relationship between 2 people. We never met personally but if I start commenting on your every post, the possibility is there that you start recognizing me just by looking at my gravatar. Moreover, Blog Comment still works for Google.
    Anyways, Thank you for sharing it. It really added value to me.

  11. Hi Ryan,
    In my experience, creating professional looking illustrations on some posts may create the illusion of a blogging cyborg. Use of software pieces or online services to produce high quality images is a must for any cyborg. Yes, taking great photos works too but that is more humane than cyborgy. ?

    We enjoyed reading this post. Great tips in creating an impression with great content (which might not be fooling at all). ? Have a wonderful time in paradise.

    Best regards.

  12. Hey Ryan,

    Great to see you here on Enstine’s place. My goodness you are one person that shows we can do anything if we put our minds to it.

    “Feel the fear and do it anyway” is what we need to do and yes, have fun with it. To me it is like doing a cannon ball into the pool from the diving board vs. tip toeing in oh so safely. I rather do the cannonball and have fun.

    Blogging an marketing is like that for me. I fear something and just do it. If I don’t, I loose time and time is money. Hey, nothing ventured, noting gained. So why not?
