As bloggers, we all face challenges. They might be as big as expanding our blog beyond a five-figure income. Or they might be ongoing, like the challenges of finding post ideas, or clearly defining our niches.
And we look for answers wherever we can: on our favorite blogs, in ebooks and whitepapers, at meetups, on social media, in our networks and with our contacts.
But all too rarely do we look inside ourselves for those answers.
You already have what you need to succeed
It sounds corny, but it’s true: you have what you need to succeed already. That doesn’t mean none of us ever need to learn anything, or buy any software, or do any research!
What it means is that your own drives, motivations, interests, and capabilities are what will lead you to success.
The problem is that online, things move so fast. We can spend so much energy simply trying to keep up that we don’t make time to look inside ourselves and work out what suits us—what we want as bloggers, and what we can give to those goals.
That’s what this weekend project is all about.
Take a blogging retreat
This weekend, I’m inviting you to take a blogging retreat. Today and tomorrow, we’ll tackle some of the most common blogging problems with a healthy dose of good old-fashioned introspection.
We’ll help you:
- work out what’s holding you back from playing bigger in the blogosphere, so you can forge ahead and take your blog to the next level
- break through the blank page of blogger’s block, for good
- finally work out what on earth your niche really is.
These posts will put you back in touch with yourself, and help you connect better with your blog, so it, in turn, can connect better with readers.
It should help you reconnect with your desires and goals as a blogger, and refresh your outlook on what you’re doing and where your blog’s headed.
I know how hard it can be to make time to do this kind of thing on a daily basis, so I hope you’ll join us this weekend to improve your blog in some unexpected ways, through our blogging retreat! Watch out for our first post later today.
