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.

When I got into blogging in August of 2012, commenting was (and is still) one of my favorite blogging activities. I have been able to connect with many exciting (I mean very exciting) folks in the industry.

If you are just new to blogging, trust me commenting on blogs in your niche will quickly drive your business forward.

You don’t just comment for the sake of it. Comment for relationships. Don’t even comment for backlinks. Add value in your comments and watch what happens.

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.

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.
