Before you become a successful blogger you need to learn how to blog.
Learning how to blog seems confusing at first because a torrent of blogging advice seems to knock on your cyber door daily. Google, Facebook, Twitter and various online forums provide you with ample blogging advice but is it good advice? Or is it bad blogging advice?
I struggled mightily for many years because I followed bad blogging advice from bad bloggers. My fault. But you do not need to make the same mistake. A few distinct types of bloggers set off red flags when you notice these individuals.
Beware. Avoid their blogging advice at all cost. In one case, it will get real personal. But you need to stop listening to these folks in order to become a successful blogger.
Never follow blogging advice from these three types of people. You need to weed out the duds in order to follow top blogger’s advice and to position yourself to become a successful blogger.
1: Negative Nellie Struggling Bloggers
Would you ask for advice from an overweight person if you needed to lose weight? Or would you ask for advice from a physically fit person or doctor if you needed to lose weight? Stop following blogging advice from negative bloggers who struggle like heck. Negative bloggers who struggle have no idea how to succeed but can teach you how to fail. Do you want to know how to fail or how to succeed?
Follow only established pro blogger advice from successful bloggers. Ignore struggling bloggers. Ignore negative bloggers. Ignore failing bloggers. Follow the best to get the best blogging advice and to become the best blogger.

2: Bloggers Who Make Big Promises and Sell You the World But Never Follow Up with Useful Free Content
Some bloggers promise you the world. Said bloggers sell you a massive dream. But this crowd never follows up with useful free content that proves they know what they are talking about. Demand credibility from bloggers or stop following bloggers. Never trust someone who does not offer free, valuable content to prove their credibility. Bloggers who make big promises but deliver free value rarely cannot be trusted because they don’t know what they’re talking about. Any reputable blogger worth following teaches you for free before teaching you for pay. Sure we all sell ebooks and courses and audiobooks and coaching but credible bloggers offer free content to gain your trust.
Trust their generous vibe and ignore bloggers who try to squeeze something out of you because something is wrong are they are afraid to help you for free through their content.
3: Your Own Inexperienced Newbie or Struggling Blogger Advice
I cannot capture how many struggling or new bloggers told me they followed advice from their wife who never ever blogged before following my 10 years of professional blogging advice. This is a sign of a new or failing blogger who has no idea what they’re doing yet you trust your own new, inexperienced, failing blogger advice. Makes no sense to me. Why trust your inexperienced self when a 10-year blogging pro offers advice? I know what I’m talking about because I have blogged for 20,000 plus hours. Trust me. Trust those 20,000 hours of experience. Trust my experience. I have forgotten more than you will ever know about blogging. Believe in me and stop following your own failing, inexperienced blogging device.
Be humble and hungry to align with successful bloggers who offer proven advice. Arrogant bloggers become failing bloggers fast but humble, open bloggers tend to reach the top of their respective niches.
