Welcome to our 30-Day Free Online Course - BLOGGING For FUN & PROFITS.
The lessons in this course are especially designed with the online "newbies" in mind. We hope that in 30 days you will be able to acquire effective blogging skills that will help you find online work or extra income from your blogging activities.
BLOGGING For FUN & PROFITS
To start a successful blog, you must first do the following:
1. BECOME the IDEAL You
You need to condition your mind and truly believe that this is the start of your successful blog. Why? Because it Is! I know that at the back of your mind you may have doubts BUT I also know that somehow somewhere deep in your heart, you also believe that you can be successful in something and this might be it.
“SEEING IT, SPEAKING IT EACH DAY, EVERYDAY, GREATLY INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF SUCCESS. IMAGINE IT SO CLEARLY THAT YOU SEE YOURSELF WITH IT, ENJOYING IT, COMMIT YOURSELF TO IT, THAT’S HOW YOU LIVE IN ABUNDANCE.” (read it again!)
It's a quote from Bryan Thayer, author of the book "The 1-Minute Networker".
True, you MUST envision (imagine) yourself to be a successful blogger and you MUST commit yourself to it. The IDEAL YOU – a committed blogger with a vision to succeed.
2. COMMIT your TIME
For the next 30 days I need you to commit your time. You MUST devote at least 1-Hour of your day to blogging. Only an hour BUT it has to be an hour OF 100% COMMITMENT FOCUS ON YOUR BLOGGING ACTIVITY.
When to blog? … Whenever is the most convenient time for you.
You have to PLAN a daily regular schedule, a time of day or night when there are no distractions (or less of it), ideally a time when your mind is “most” focus, clear of issues, concerns and stress.
No excuses! If you want to learn and earn then you have to FIND TIME (or make time) to do it! You must commit and do the work. Remember this:
“EVERY WINNER HAS A PLAN and EVERY LOSER HAS AN EXCUSE.
WINNERS MAKE COMMITMENTS and LOSERS MAKE PROMISES.”
3. FIND your TOPIC (your “niche”)
To make your blogging a FUN learning experience you need to choose a topic that you are passionate about. A topic that you like to talk about with your friends. Things you are truly interested in. Here’s a list of sample topics:
- My Recycling Art Projects
- Old Philippine Churches
- Exotic Pinoy Dishes
- Great Filipino Inventions and Inventors
- “Old School” Cars in the Philippines
- Health and Fitness for People in their 30’s (or 40’s, 50’s so on…)
- My Life as a Filipino Greenpeace Volunteer
- Jose Rizal, My Pinoy Hero
Notice something similar about the topics? They are specific or the so-called “niche”. All successful blogs have a niche.
Philippine Heroes is a good topic but Jose Rizal is a good niche. Remember your elementary English lessons? It’s like common and proper nouns and we will be focusing on the “proper nouns” to find your niche.
