Enjoying blogging about other blogging topics is pretty blogging.
It’s weird that blogging about other blogging topics has made blogging pretty exciting again.
Before I was blogging about pure technology and that’s it.
I never really shared much about my opinion on other topics and after awhile, digital marketing felt like chasing a bull.
My sons first trip to the zoo offers a great way to find new things to talk about, exciting pictures to add to my journey, and of course, pictures relating to the text is key.
Does it take days? Hours? Minutes? How creative are you if you’re not blogging about more than one topic?
- Taking forever to release content?
- Maybe you need to make content that isn’t so complicated?
- Have you tried writing about something more exciting or interesting?
The data does not lie — it just takes a long time to make sense of what to do with the data. And boy let me tell you, if you have an idea right now, and started blogging about it, by the end of the year you could very easily be generating multiple sources of revenue.
Also, one looming fact…
My friends and family ain’t gonna read nothing about some technical shit, but share a picture of my baby or an animal, well now you’re blogging. Play to the market baby!
And if you’re the type of person who doesn’t like to read more than a little bit of the post, then let me at least explain one more thing before you bounce. Don’t mess with the bull unless you want the horns.
What I mean by that… If you build the pipeline of traffic, people will keep coming and expecting you to be at the end, and if you’re not willing to support the business, it will crumble.
There’s an interesting amount of anxiety and stress that comes with blogging about one topic.
So, don’t start that way. Also, just start, you should blog about trying to start. Fight against the fear of the unknown is another piece of this but because I know it, and I wish I started earlier because it’s bloody easy.
Blogging is easy, so stop waiting for someone to give you a winning lottery ticket.
Seriously, waiting is the worst possible mistake you can make if you have the desire to get ahead.
There was a pressure to building my own business and the pressure was because of all the unknowns and fact content online that never teaches you the true path to monetizing your time.
Almost like releasing a song I produced. Then sending it to someone via email.
Hoping they actually open the email, let alone listen to 100% of the song.
A pressure from a digital perspective with very few logical steps to take, a mindful of information, and a bunch of digital marketing non-sense from “thought leaders,” who don’t really know what’s happening.
My day-to-day grind before Tyler Garrett dot com, it felt like a gradient of decisions, and nothing really stuck out.
Plus, trying to isolate on a single topic is not very exciting because our lives aren’t 100% focused on one topic.
We are not gradient decision makers, we are dynamic decision makers, and tend to lean more towards success.
Basically — Single topic blogging disables the ability to really share much beyond that single topic. Especially if it’s your business.
And from a digital marketing perspective, it’s boring building thousands of links that say “something service.”
But Tyler, I have a Face of a Troll.
We can’t all look like a 10 out of 10 and take pictures of our perfect faces, or butts, for money on Instagram, and maybe Instagram isn’t your cup of tea. So, have you considered blogging? It’s cool, Instagram is full of fake account bots and you only get 1 website link.
I used to walk and blog. Voice to text about technology. I believe enjoying blogging is key to giving yourself an outlet to talk to someone.
Without whiteboarding your ideas on paper, how do you progress your ideas, and how do you move from where you are today?
Have you considered blogging yet?
