Richard Branson’s Virgin Blog.
The Huffington Post.
I’ve appeared on some of the most famous blogs and news sites on earth.
I’ve also been featured on not quite as high profile but still famous blogs from my niche.
In total, I’ve landed on 250 plus high profile blogs.
Today I want to help you get featured on big league sites to:
- Give your brand bragging rights
- Increase your blog traffic
- Boost your blogging income
- Share your light with the world, to inspire more people
Sure I love the recognition but more than anything, being interviewed on world renowned blogs gives me a platform to inspire more folks with my story.
Which brings us to tip #A1.
#A1: Tell Your Story
What other blogging tips blogger explains how being attacked by 2 ladyboy prostitutes in Bangkok helped him become a better blogger?
I have been stalked and accosted by 2 wild man in Kathmandu, I lived between 2 brothels in Istanbul, I cheated death in India and I had 2 death-defying encounters with a spitting cobra and krait in Bali.
I’ve fought off the insect with the world’s most painful sting – the bullet ant – in Costa Rica and lived in a hut where a colony of army ants paraded through on a murderous massacre, butchering scorpions, centipedes and other hard core buggies in their path.
I once watched a veritable trail mix of cashews, peanuts and raisins cascade from the baggage compartment onto a woman’s fluffy hair as we hit turbulence 35,000 feet above Fiji (that was my fault, but it’s a long story).

Not because I’m a talented storyteller.
But because they are my stories!
