And the short answer to that question is to blog everyday for a year and a half, and you’ll eventually hit the nail on the head a one or two of your posts will take off and get other people writing on your website about it.
And I have been blogging for a year and a half on this domain and I haven’t even been blogging everyday. This is my first go at doing it everyday for 90 days. I only have something like 74 posts as of right now. For a while I was only writing once a week.
But I was still moving. Now I intend to pick up the pace, and get more traffic and more subscribers, and more buyers to this site. And I intend on doing that by creating valuable content.
So here’s my story.
I’m a family man, a worker, a salesman, a rock and roller, and I’m a wannabe millionaire off of ebooks. That’s what my first ebook was about, upon reflecting on it.
It’s the story about how you can blog and create income. And that it’s possible for ANYONE to do it. The way I see it, I’m a writer first and then a business owner second. The part of me that makes the money comes after the work itself. Really though time will tell all.
All I know is that I MUST keep writing. No matter what. Wine or not. Cigarettes or not. I must keep writing. That’s my ticket to freedom. At least that’s what I believe I can free myself from my job with. And after I finally do it, I’m going to tell everyone exactly how I did it, and how they can do it too. And I’m going to create products people can buy that will put me into profit, but more importantly bless people.
Because I think you can bless people if you adopt the attitude that all human life is valuable.
And so far I’m making it. Considering I’m a schizophrenic, just holding down an hourly job is an accomplishment, no matter how much I’m making.
Getting raises at that hourly job is even more of an accomplishment.
Now really my focus should be on HOLDING that hourly job and continuing to grow there. Because that is what is paying me right now. That’s what I’m living off of.
But Lord is there room for improvement.
But even if I make no money at all off of my writing I still wouldn’t regret doing it. I think it’s valuable and serves a purpose no matter what level of involvement in the economy I’m in with it. But at the same time I’m highly optimistic. I really believe I can make a million dollars writing, maybe I’m wrong.
But I don’t care and I’m not going to be reasonable on that. I’m going to be UNREASONABLE and believe that I will make a million dollars and more off of my writing, songs, and network marketing. Doesn’t it make you want to get in and go for a ride?
Because writing for me is living my dream life. You can escape to anywhere or anything you want with writing. And your TAKING ACTION. I say you can really go places with writing. Definitely for me. Definitely for us.
Plus you can get really good comments even if your not making any money off of it yet. Like I’m getting. They say nice things to me, and it makes you feel good that your brightening people’s days. I love it. I love my commentors.
And I can’t wait to get a few people on my list so that I can start loving and writing those people. I think that’s a fun way to build a relationship. Through email.
I am going to get this business off the ground and start selling a million copies of one or more than one of my ebooks. I’m just going to write until I have that much value. I’m going to write until I die or reach the masses. Most likely though, I will just write and die, and not sell a million copies.
But you never know. I’m keeping my options open. I’m leaving myself open to the possibility of success, no matter how slim the chance. That’s the way I think everyone should look at it. Take the chance and do what you want to do. It might work!
For me it must work. I must free myself from the slavery of an hourly job and working for someone else. But I’m not going to quit my job or anything. Not until I’m making what I made in a year, in a month. Once I’m at that spot, I can quit my job and find more effective ways to profit on my work from home.
I suppose there are a lot of ways you could make money online, but I think blogging is what I support the most. I think it’s the gateway to all the abundance you could ever desire. Is that valuable? Does that make you want to write a blog?
I hope it does, and you can write about whatever you want, even if that’s video games. I personally myself am not a gamer, I’m a reader and a guitar player. But I know there are a lot of people that are gamers and I know it’s popular.
So if you can find a way to make money off of the games, go for it. Maybe you can use some of the ideas on this blog to help you become more profitable. Because that’s really my job. That’s what I’m taking on. EARNING PROFITS.
And slowly but surely I think I will get there. It’s just gonna take blogging everyday, and eventually writing more ebooks.
But I do have one ebook that I think I could sell. And the only way I think I can put it is that it’s “good shit”.
It’s shit, but it’s good shit. It might even have the power to get you high.
Ever think about a reading high?
I get one when I think about all the things I could do to live the life of my dreams.
And when I’m talking about the life of my dreams I definitely am talking about taking a lot of vacations. And living in a bigger house.
I figure I can have the home base and my family and I can travel the world, and then come back home. I think that would be ideal. That would be a masterpiece.
I would probably only need one or two million to get started. Get the house and take the first vacation.
The dream life is really one that I’m living right now though. And I think that’s valuable. I’m writing my blog! And this COULD turn into an income producing activity.
And I would probably write 10 books a year if I knew I could sell them for a profit.
I think this tells me I really just need to start on a new ebook, the next one I’m going to put up for sale after the one I’ve already finished and am having peer reviewed.
I can’t wait for the feedback.
I COULD site examples of bloggers that have made an impact and are PROFITING. Intuition tells me that this can be done, and my counselor tells me that I have as good of a chance as anyone else would.
I say I have to work harder to overcome the voices, so I can just live and work.
But their not so bad. I’ve never been restrained before, mostly because I don’t talk like a crazy person, but I’ve heard about other schizophrenics who have been.
It doesn’t seem like a pleasant experience. That and being force fed medication.
I take my medication happily. Antipyschotic.
The voices tell me I’m handsome or that I’m beautiful. Sometimes I wish they were real people. Other times when they tell me they want to kill me I would rather avoid that in a real person.
I’m sure at times my boss has wanted to kill me. Or my wife. Or my inlaws. I’m sure this is the case for a lot of people. Really though, I think overall everyone is pleased. I’m succeeding at selling my product, and I’m suiting up and showing up. I’m EARNING an income. And for the most part it’s easy!
But it’s even easier to write, and I simply love to do it.
What’s the value here for you? What’s the million dollar value?
Love what you do. Even if your working for someone else. It could really come in other ways and you could love what you do even more and make a masterpiece of a life.
And if you took what I wrote here and ran with it, and started blogging everyday for 90 days, nonstop, then you COULD make some money selling ebooks, and that COULD be worth a million dollars to you.
For me it doesn’t come fast enough so I just went out and bought a Powerball ticket. I don’t know if it’s good news or bad news but when I folded the ticket and put it in my wallet, and then pulled it back out when I got home, the ticket was stuck together. Some of the numbers stuck to the other side of the paper. If I were to win I don’t even know if they could redeem the ticket!
It’s for 90 million dollars. Plenty to retire my wife and I. I would never have to work another holiday again?
What’s the value here?
What’s the million dollar value?
If you do play the lottery and you do keep a blog, you could write about playing the lottery on your blog. That way if you won you could go public with your website at the press interview and your traffic would skyrocket! The masses would read your work! Wouldn’t that be lovely.
But people would also hate it, and I would have to deal with that.
I guess it’s give and take. I’m ready for the responsibility.
Well, the powerball number is 17, and I think I have a 3 and a 7 in there as well as a 66. We’ll find out tomorrow if I won the jackpot because I probably won’t stay up and check it tonight.
Then again, I might. This would be the second time in a week I’ve stayed up to check the numbers the night of the drawing.
But the most I can lose tonight is 2 dollars so it’s not that bad. But I’m optimistic, and I’m holding out hope that I’ll win. That my sticky ticket is the jackpot winner.
And the way I see it is there is no other choice than for me to believe it is.
This could be the road to madness.
Or it could be the ticket to millions of dollars.
Only time will tell.
But really I don’t have to win the jackpot. I still have this blog, and at minimum, even without ebook sales, I still have an hourly job. So I’m working, but I’m also enjoying the weekend, and it could really lead to more money. I’m working so that it does. Time will tell what results I get. I think they are going to be good all around.
But what if I win the jackpot tonight?
That means on Monday I put my two weeks in. Not that I don’t like the job. I just don’t want to work for anyone if I don’t have to. I would go from the worker to the boss. The one writing the checks.
And the voices entertain bad things that would happen to my marriage if I ever was a millionaire. I fight those voices. I love my wife, I love our family together. I love what we do for each other. I cherish her. And that’s the way I’m going to be, or better, for the rest of my life.
And if I DO WIN THE JACKPOT tonight, I’m going to celebrate tomorrow and make sure I write about it on this blog. Maybe people can learn from me and manifest their own lottery jackpot wins. That’s my hope for the future, or one of them at least.
Here’s to you having a great day, I thank you for reading. Take care.
