How To Bring Home $40 On A Rainy Day

$40 on a rainy day

“How To Bring Home $40 On A Rainy Day”

Today was day 2 of my 2 day weekend and my wife and I were discussing our future this morning.  We live in a 2 bedroom townhouse, and we have 2 kids, a boy and a girl.  They are going to need their own rooms in the future, so my wife and I were breaking down what we need to do to get into a bigger house.

Part of my responsibility is to get out of credit card debt.  So far I’ve paid it off by $2,000 but I still have another $15,000 to go.  When my wife and I were finished discussing the house, I decided I could wait no longer to take some kind of action to move us closer to that new home.  I went out to Doordash, and it was busy.

No sooner did I arrive at the Annapolis mall, at the Cheesecake Factory (a Doordash hotspot) did I get my first order.  I had four orders in two and a half hours and brought in over $40.  I did use $10 in gas, so after expenses I brought in $30.

I could have gone for longer, the orders were still coming in.  Next time, I won’t make the mistake of ending the dash early.  Today was Sunday, and the weekends are big with Doordash, so next time I’m going to maximize and work longer, harder hours.  Not that doing Doordash is hard.  It’s not, it’s actually pretty simple.

Today the orders came in to go to Subway, Miss Shirley’s, Firehouse Subs, and KFC.  Those were my 4 deliveries.  At all of them except for Miss Shirley’s I used the red card Doordash supplied me with to pay for the food.  When you go in to use the red card, you place the order yourself, at the direction of the Doordash app, and you pay with their money.  The only out of pocket expense you have is gas.  When it comes to making some extra money, Doordash is the best way I’ve found without having to pick up work at a brick and mortar business.

Doordash doesn’t pay a lot, but it does pay and I make about as much on a busy day working Doordash as I do at my part time job.  Not that I would leave my part time job to do Doordash full time, because I’m getting a steady paycheck that I’ve been pulling in for over 2 years now.  That can stay right where it is, it’s going to help me pay off my credit card bill and get into a bigger house.  But doing the Doordashing on top of my part time job is going to be a tremendous help in getting me out of debt quickly.  I’m going to develop a laser focus on zero debt and work 7 days a week until I get there (hopefully).  When I’m not working I’m going to be working.  When I’m sleeping I’m going to be working.  When I’m eating I’m going to be working.  When I’m vaping I’m going to be working.  I’m going to be earning income 24/7.  This website your on right now is going to help me earn when I’m not directly working, hence I will be working 24/7, thanks to the power of blogging, the internet, and Google.

Right now I’m drinking lemonade instead of wine and I’m vaping instead of smoking cigarettes.  Those are the sacrifices I’m making so I can get out of debt faster.  One of the books I’m reading right now is “The Total Money Makeover” and the slogan of the book is “Live like no one else, so later you can live like no one else.”  I think of that slogan as I sacrifice alcohol and cigarettes.

Another thing I’m doing for extra money is writing on Textbroker.com.  I want to get my rating up so I get paid more per article, but that is a work in progress.  For now I bring in a few quarters for every piece, but it’s better than nothing and helps me refine my writing craft.  I get paid for writing by my blog and by Textbroker.  So far my writing income is only trickling in, but seeing some money come in is motivating and moves me forward with the writing in a more positive way.  I also like that when it comes to my blog it’s on 24/7.  I could earn money from it at any time.  I love writing so earning money off it is great for me, even if right now it’s not a lot.

Writing is creative work and I get to use my mind to work.  I’ve read in a prosperity book that working with your mind has the potential to pay you a lot more than working with your hands, so I’m going to keep working it to see if that will hold true for me.  I certainly hope it does.

Now that I’m done Doordashing for the day and I’ve made my $40 on a rainy day, I’m home and ready to write.  Writing is paying me something and that something I hope is going to turn into a lot and help me to get out of debt quickly.  Although I’m not going to rely on my painfully slow coming income from writing to get out of debt.  I’m going to work more on the things that are paying me more money like my part time job (which on some weeks is more like a full time job) and Doordash.  If I put the time into Doordash that I put into this website that would be a big chunk (if not the whole thing) off my credit card.  In other words, don’t expect my sole focus to be on writing at this point.

Although if the personal development works and I stop drinking then I have more energy at home and I might want to work on this blog even after my job and then Doordash.  I do afterall have a laser focus on paying off my debt.  I do like the sound of daily massive action.  I think I’ll probably end up doing the whole thing with a smile on my face.  I think I will and I’ll further do it with prosperous thoughts.

I like to keep my affirmations simple when I’m saying them to myself.  One affirmation I was just using was simply “I am prosperous”.  After you’ve just made $40 out of the blue you do feel prosperous.  I had no plans to make any money today when I woke up.  By 12:30 I was out the door to go to work!

When I was out there today it was busy.  I did have about 10 minutes in between my 2nd and 3rd order where I read a “The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity” by Catherine Ponder.  It was cool when it got me thinking prosperous affirmations and then shortly into reading the book there was another order.  I think if I can maintain a prosperous thinking while doing Doordash, I’ll have better results.

Here’s a tip for you if you want to do Doordash in your town.

Because seeing the Doordash customer is a wham bam thank you sir or maim thing, you only have the chance to say a couple sentences.  I usually start by saying hi, and after I give them their food I tell them thanks for ordering and (my favorite part) ENJOY your food.

That’s another thing I like about Doordash.  We are delivering food.  As human beings we need food to live, so by doing Doordash, you are helping people to live and getting paid for it.  It’s a nice way to exchange service for money.  Really, you could look at it as fulfilling work.  I have to admit I like feeding people, as my day job is at a restaurant and it feels good when you make food people enjoy.  Really, when I think about it, I wouldn’t trade my life for anyone else’s.  I live a rocking life and everyday I love my life more and more.  Makes me think about how much time I really have left, and only God knows that.  I could be gone tomorrow, I could last for another 6 decades.  I hope I last.  I hope that we all last.

I know some people don’t last.  Not everyone can last.  That doesn’t mean we have to think we won’t last.  The opposite is true.  We have to think we will last.  At least that way it gives us a fighting chance out there in the world, and we can get out of God’s way and let His miraculous plan work out in our lives.  We don’t have time to entertain negative thoughts.  At least I don’t.

I don’t really watch the news because of all the fear it creates.  In my opinion, the news creates a distrust among people, and that distrust is bad for business.  I realize that bad things do happen but that shouldn’t make us trust our fellow citizens any less.  I have had to recuperate my trust in humanity because of some of the people I have been in contact with.  Getting ripped off can happen to anyone.  Once I even had my car door slammed against my leg by a thug who wanted to steal my engraved lighter.  That doesn’t mean I don’t still talk to the people who bum cigarettes off me.  God wanted me to have that experience, and if he wants me to have it again then it’s going to happen.  If he wants me to use the shield he’s given me, then I’ll use the shield.  If he wants me to use the sword he’s given me… that’s for another post.

I will say that it was sweet to not expect to make any income, and then make some.  Especially on a rainy day.  Doordash was good to me today, and I have ambitions to have my first $100 day this month.  Things were going good, and then they got better.  Do you think that Doordash could have a positive impact on your own life?  Would you like to at least try it and see how you like it?

If you like the idea of Doordashing for extra income and would like to read my stories about my own experiences (you can leave comments on this blog about your own experiences and we can talk) then bookmark this website and check back every once in a while and read what’s new.  Or you could do one better and sign up for my email list.  On top of the new and best posts, you’ll also get a free eBook to give you something to read.  Stay on my list and you’ll have a front row seat in my progress on prosperity.  Getting out of debt and into a new house. Ending up a millionaire.  Who knows where it’s going to come from, but my story here on this blog is about the action, the chase, and cashing in.  It’s also about exponential increases.  If that sounds like your sort of thing (things I’ve actually done), consider subscribing.

Maybe if you decide to try Doordash, bring a book on prosperity with you to read in the down time (if there is any).  When you dash, you have to have orders to get paid, and it feels good when your thinking prosperously and then you get an order.

One of the benefits of Doordash is that you don’t have to wait years to get paid like you do with blogging.  On top of that, I’ve earned a lot more with Doordash than I have off the ads on this site.  That doesn’t mean this won’t change.  What it does mean is that when I play it smart, I’ll invest my time into the things that are paying me the most money, and then work business like hobbies when I’m not with the wife and kids.  I don’t want to be that far away from my family.  I have a debt to repay, yes.  But I can pay that debt and still spend time with my children when I’m not working.

On top of that I still find the time to write, which COULD end up paying me more than all my other jobs combined.  The thing is I really enjoy writing.  Even though my blog has paid me the least for the most work, I enjoy keeping it.  It’s a labor of love.  I love writing and blogging.  I love the written word.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.  Just the potential of that happening is enough for me to do the work and enjoy it.  It’s really a beautiful process even without the money.

And I have to be honest, I’m not even considering the money it would take to take blogging into a full time profession.  Not right now.  I’m doing it purely for the sake of taking action on creating my dream life.  How do you think you would feel if you wanted to be a writer and then you started writing?  How do you think you would feel if you started a collection of public writings on a blog?  Would you be scared?  Would you be excited?  Would you be thrilled?

I can tell you there’s nothing like doing it.  Maybe something will come from it, maybe something won’t.  But at least give it ten years before you decide whether you want to keep doing it or not.  By that time you should have a pretty good grip on blogging mastery, no matter what pace your going.  10 years is 10 years.  A decade of your life spent working your best on something.  That is a respectable amount of time to be writing in public.  Money aside, think of the sheer personal (and perhaps even professional) development you’d experience if you made that commitment.  I can tell you with two years experience blogging that I’ve definitely grown personally and even professionally over the course of that time. I believe a major reason I’m doing well right now is because I’ve been recording my learning experiences and my successes here on this blog.   Your blog can be a tool to help you increase your personal and professional (income) development.

That’s my post for today, and again, I hope you enjoyed it.

Why Writing Is An Art

Writing and Art

Write like your life depends on it!

Writing is an art for the main reason that it’s your brain creating something.  Even if you make it up as you go, you are still creating something.  Your master plan will be revealed, so that you can make your millions, and live your life happily.  As long as you blog.

Oh yes! Writing is where it’s at.  There is a power in words (although you should take that with a grain of salt) and you can use your words to shape your life.  Some things will work, some things will not.  You’ll never know until you try.

If you’re a writer you’ll probably be excited at the idea of making money with your writing.  I can tell you that you really don’t need to do much other than write a bunch of posts and put Adsense up on your site.  The pennies will start coming in.  It’s free to join, as long as you have a blog, you can set it up.  And there is no time limit for how many clicks you need to get to make your first money.

The beauty of this is that your earning can exponentially grow with each day.  It took me about 3 months to make 50 cents.  Just last week I had a day where I made $5.02 in that single day.  Talk about percentage increases.  Just imagine what you could do if you made $100 in a single day off adsense.  If you could do it everyday, you be making a part time income.  When your writing is an art, making a part time income off it is a blessing.

But I’m not making $100 a day.  I’ve had a good day where I made $5 off of doing no more work, and it was all off my art.  If you want to do that, I’m your man.  And it’s only going to get bigger from here.

I have a Convertkit business in the works.  I’m going to switch domain names.  Take all the stuff about the schizophrenia out.  Just have a strictly business blog.  And sell Convertkit.  See if God will allow me to have that.  He’s allowed me an Adsense income.  I think I’ll have better luck on a new domain.

With blogging, maybe you’ll have an income, maybe you won’t, but you do it more for the action of writing.  Writing your art in a public place.  You might rub off on people, and I mean in the best way possible.  Your influence could grow.   Really there is nothing stopping you but yourself.  Take action now and write your next blog post.

So I’m going to make this website about personal development, the law of attraction, and affirmations, along with whatever else I want to write.

Here are some affirmations for a professional blogger.  Feel free to use these examples and craft your own.  I have read that making affirmations your own increases their power.

  1. I am swimming in money from my blog.
  2. I make $4,000 a month from blogging and I’m moving my family into a bigger house.
  3. I will be debt free.
  4. This has the makings of a beautiful story.
  5. My art prospers me now.
  6. I have my home office.
  7. My home office is clean and my vision board is clear.
  8. I keep up on the housework.
  9. I do things with my family.
  10. I work my part time job, but I don’t have to, it’s just extra income.
  11.  I love my life.
  12. I have all the money I need.
  13. I help other people get all the money they need.
  14. I help a lot of people.
  15. Writing is art, and I feel good about my pursuit.
  16. My perfect business is coming to me now.
  17. I perfect the art the writing.
  18. I now have all the money I need.
  19. I prosper in all things that I do, especially writing.
  20. I am a best selling author.

I hope this post and these affirmations helped you.  Thanks, and God Bless.

Have You Ever Thought Of Starting Your Own Business?

Have you ever thought of starting your own business?

It’s done!

(Note:  There is affiliate links that if you click on and buy thru, I will get paid.  This comes at no extra charge to you.)

Have you?

I know I have.

I best I can come up with at this point is a Convertkit business.

They pay you $8 a month for every new person you sign up.  If you buy Convertkit from me, I will hope for your success with it.  The beautiful thing about having a list is that you can sell them anything you want.  Be it an eBook, music, or poetry.  Artists can have a list and make their living off of it.  Have you ever thought of starting a business off your art?

You can do it with Convertkit.  One of the nice things about it is when you send out a broadcast, it tells you how many people open the email.  It also tells you how many people click on the link.  When you are trying to make a living off of your online work, you’ll be working all the time to plant as many seeds as you can, and to make the most of each planting.

I really believe I can make money online.  I really believe I can help people.  I believe you can help people too.  Together we can create an unstoppable money making machine.  Convertkit is one of the products that is the foundation of our online business.  If you’re like me and want to sell the business to others, you can go ahead and market a Convertkit business just like I am.  Go and find your people that want to start their own businesses.  I know my 500 Convertkit customers are out there and that would give me a $4,000 a month income.  Enough to retire from my job happily.  Although I might quit at $1,000 a month and go full time on the blog and see what I can really do with it.  The latter is more likely the outcome.  How much I end up making is in God’s department, but I am praying for sales.

You should pray for sales too.  Why not?  It’s not a bad thing to wish for more good to come into your life.  I wish it for you, why not wish it for yourself.  If you’re going to be doing the work of blogging, you may as well imagine success with it.  Why think yourself a failure?  Leave it up to God.

That’s not to say you should just wish for success.  You should imagine yourself a success and then work everyday to attain that success you imagine.  I imagine having 112 Convertkit buyers that I refer and having a $1,000 a month income just from Convertkit.  I imagine that for you as well.

I also imagine for you that you will be better than me at selling Convertkit.  I’ve been selling it for a few months now and I am still working for my first sale.  You might be able to get your first sale in your first week.  I want you to surpass me in earnings one day.  That way the student does better with their life than the teacher did in his life.  I believe that is the sign of a good teacher.

So go ahead, click on the Convertkit link and buy your list.  When you’ve outdone me and you, you’ll be happy I signed you up.

Cheers!

What It Feels Like To Sell Convertkit

What I want is to sell Convertkit for a living.

That along with hosting.

So far all I have up for sale is the Convertkit.

I wanted to tell you what it feels like to sell it, when your trying to sell it for a living.

The thing about selling an email list provider, is that you help people start businesses.  You can feel proud that everyday, you help people get what they need to go into business for themselves.  It’s beautiful.

When you are trying to make your money online, in a work from home business, there’s no cheaper way that to buy an email list and then resell that email list to your potential customers.  I don’t spend a lot of money maintaining my business, but I still have a business and I’m still working to make it better everyday.  Selling Convertkit is really a dream come true, as they pay monthly, for every member you have.

The way I look at it is, you’ve got to do the work.  You’ve got to be the farmer and plant all the seeds you can.  The more seeds you plant, the more potential for a great harvest.  That is, if God gives you anything at all.

It could be that you work and work and never get paid.

That is not my intention, and it shouldn’t be yours either.  We should shoot to quadruple our monthly incomes with blogging.  You gotta figure, if you can make $1,000 a month working a part time job, you must be able to make at least 4 times that much when you cut out the owner and all the profits he takes.

In other words, when you are the boss, your the one making all the money.

How it feels to sell Convertkit is that I’m doing the right thing.  It’s not easy, especially with the big players like Pat Flynn doing the same thing.  I have a hard time competing.  Still, I feel there is a market for my work so I’m just going to keep working publicly and see what happens.

It feels good to serve Convertkit to people.  It feels good just asking them to join.  It takes work, and trial and error, but I have found that it’s part of God’s plan for me, so I’m making the most of it.  I hope that doesn’t scare you.

I just wanted to let you know that I’m selling Convertkit for a living and I’m failing miserably but I’m going to continue on until I reach the promised land.

Thank You, and God Bless,

How To Make 58 Cents

Jesse Creel is a Genius

Something is better than nothing.

( There is a Convertkit affiliate link in this post.  If you buy I’ll make money, at no extra cost to you.)

Yes, I did it.

I made money with my blog.

Granted it’s only half a dollar.

I can tell you exactly how I did it, and it will become obvious that in the beginning of making money blogging it’s a labor of love.

Because that’s where I am in the stages of making money blogging.  The very painful beginning.  If you would like to support me you can do so by signing up for a Convertkit membership and building your own business.  That would be a huge victory for me and one that I’ve waited a very long time for.

But enough with the handouts.  I want to work for your money.  I’ll be unapologetic for earning your money, but at the same time I’ll be doing my best to be of value to you and enhance your life.  You can believe me when I tell you I enhance my wife and two kid’s lives.  Those are the most important people in the world to me, so I start there and I expand my reach to you good folks of the internet.

What’s the value here?  What can you get out of this that is going to expand your life?  It’s that you can do your creative work and get paid fifty cents for it.  You have monetized your efforts.  People care about what you think.

50 cents is only the beginning.  From there you can make dollars, and fives, and tens, and twenties.  Then hundreds.  Then thousands.  Then tens of thousands, then hundreds of tens of thousands, then millions.  That’s the logical progression when your doing what you know you need to be doing.

So I already have a blogging income.  The vision is to expand that into 7 different income streams and pull in a million dollars a year.  I’m a long ways off, but I know I can do it, so I’m working everyday to become a more successful content marketer.

And what I’m marketing is a Convertkit business.  The act of you getting paid for people to start businesses of their own.  Where they do the work of creating their own business, while you do the work of creating yours.

I don’t think a professional blog could ever get you fired from your job, so it’s safe to do when your working.  This way you can pay the bills while your blogging income gets up and running.

I’m telling you this marketing thing is amazing.  You could sell anything you want.  Whatever you believe in.  You get to pick your product with your blog.  It couldn’t be better because you are in charge.  You are your own boss.  I jump for joy when I make $.58 like I just made my first $1,000 a month income.  I am incredibly grateful for the money.  I feel like I’ve pleased God.  And I want to please God, and You even more and earn even more money.

So here goes, here’s the value.  If you can write, you can make money on the internet.  That’s the value.  If you have a brain you can make money on the internet with your own self hosted blog.  I hope the repetition serves you here.  Think of it as affirmations.

Read my stuff and you’ll transform into a writer who makes money off his words.  That’s my message.  I’ve made other money off my writing besides the Adsense money.  In fact I’ve made a lot more off Textbroker.com than I have off my blog.  Doing freelance writing.  Maybe I should be spending my time on Textbroker.com instead of writing this blog that isn’t really paying me anything.  Not that textbroker.com pays a lot, it’s only a few dollars, and I make exponentially more at my job.  Still, I like doing things, and one of those things I like doing is getting paid for writing.

That’s it for this post.  If you want to make 50 cents off your blog, just write 100+ articles and put adsense on your site.  You’ll have it in a few weeks.  Just think where you’ll be able to take it from there.  Think big and think millions.

Write Your First E Book

How To Write An E Book

Write Your First E Book

Writer Extraordinaire

The purpose of this post is to help you write an e book.  Whatever phase your in, writing an e book can be fun.  I like to write short freebies for my list and I find it to be great practice for the real thing when I’m collecting money for my e books.  I am always in the process of writing something, whether it’s my blog, an e book, poetry, songs, or just my journal, so I would be someone who could tell you how to break out of that nasty writers block and do it for the bliss of it.

Of course we want to move past the hobby aspect of blogging and writing and become an expert professional.  We want to be paid.  So we are going to have to solve problems.  That’s what your e book should do for your readers.  It should solve a problem for them in a quick way and make their life better.  Part of the beauty of this process is that you can do it all from home.  You don’t have to leave the house, except for the events.  Just imagine collecting money in your pajamas.

Not that you’d always be wearing pajamas.  You might sometimes be dressed in pants and a nice shirt.  Smelling good.  Feeling good.  Feeling like you could in fact be your own boss and explode your income to heights it’s never been before.  What would the e book look like if you felt that way as you wrote it.

Here’s something that might help you.  Before you write your e book, take 15 minutes and visualize solving a problem with your e book.  Take that time and really see what it looks like to have an e book that your subscribers will get a lot of value from and just do that for 15 minutes prior to writing.  Try it Today!

Back to the subject of how to write an e book, like I’ve already said, you’ve got to solve a problem.  The value for the reader is that you’ve helped them fix their life.  Help somebody fix their life, or add to their life, will gain you more and more subscribers.  Once you get to that 1,000 subscriber mark, you’ll be ready to make your first product launch, and you’ll find out just how much money you can make in your first month.

Then you’ll be writing e books for money, and not just to give more of your valuable content away for free.  Soon, if you choose this path, you’ll be working from home full time, making a full time income.  Nothing succeeds like success and your made of it.  You are after all capable of making money off your blog, so there should be nothing stopping you from making 4 times as much off your own business as you do working for someone else.  The question is would you be satisfied with that, or would you want more?

I’ve been reading Catherine Ponder’s “Dynamic Laws Of Prosperity” and in it one of the affirmations is the following:

EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE PROSPERS ME NOW!

Something I wanted to end this post with, maybe try using it when your relaxing in your down time.

Blogging Mountain

The Blog About Blogging

Blogging Mountain

The Mountaintop of 9 Million Dollars A Year

I wanted to name my blog “The Blog About Blogging” because I want it to be a resource people can come to in order to find the inspiration to blog today.  And blog well.

The funny thing about blogging is that it’s what’s on your mind.  How would you be able to write about anything else?  The issue is to make the things on your mind about good things.  At least it is for me.  I imagine my experience is like everyone else’s experience, except with my own unique twist.  As is yours.  It’s our own unique twists.  We’re all sharing the same experience.

Granted some are more far out there than others.  I can say truthfully, mine is pretty far out there.  As far out there as one of the few jackpot winners, or something better.  If you could make 9 million dollars a year off your blog for the rest of your life, that would be better than getting 9 million dollars a year for 25 years from the lottery.  It can be done.

But this blog is about blogging.  It’s about becoming a professional blogger (whenever that happens).  It’s about the mission to make $1,000 a month off a Convertkit business.  I figure if I put it out there that I want 112 Convertkit referrals then there’s a better chance I’ll GET 112 Convertkit referrals.  It’s all about the law of attraction, part of the reason I love writing and blogging.  Because it appeals to the law of attraction.  Like attracts like.  If you write like a millionaire then there’s no stopping the millions coming in, let alone a $1,000 a month income.

But really all this could be crap and I could just be writing for the hobby of it.  Not that that is going to stop me from opening up these channels of expression, where money could come into my life, at these common hours where I’m just doing nothing.

But i’m not going to be doing nothing.  I’m going to be blogging.  Blogging because I have a mission and a message.  That’s what this blog is really all about.  It’s about helping people blog everyday, to build their brand, and make more money.

When it comes to a blog about blogging why not write about your day job.  That could help somebody.  Could let them in on what your doing to make your income.  In my case it’s not even hard to make an income, except on those occasions when it is.  This is really not meant to be a random rant, but more a message to you that you too can blog.  And it can be a meaningful experience to you.

All I know is that more posts, the more chances you have at getting some traffic, so I say, blog on.  Of course you want to be reading other people’s blogs too, and commenting on them, and even asking bloggers if you can guest post for them.  These are the things I’ve learned that will help you to stand out as a blogger at this point.  So far I’ve commented some, written a lot, and haven’t yet asked anyone if I can guest post on their site.  I have that one in the works.

But I’ve got to find a way to get some natural traffic to this site.  I need a lot more subscribers, and a lot more clicks on my ads, and a lot more traffic.  I know I can do this, I’ve just got to take baby steps.  Working from home, even when your making no money, can still be a rocking time.  It would be a lot more rocking if you got your first commission, but I think you and me can do that together, blogging.

And doing all the other things that come along with building a business from scratch, like passing out your business cards to anyone that will take one.  Another being working your day job like your life depends on it, because it does!

The way I see it is, you put enough work into your blog, it’s going to pay you.  The way I see it is, you’ve got a solid 2 years of content creation before you even make a cent so you may as well get busy writing.  It’s beautiful anyway.  You may as well enjoy the writing.  Put that work in though, I believe we all have a $1,000 a month business in us.

You may call me too optimistic, but the way I see it is, the future is bright, brighter than comprehension.  We are all getting better everyday, and you can smell it.  It smells like sweat.  It smells like lazy creativeness.  It smells like your loving money.  It smells like you’ve got a savings account.  It smells like you can spend money.  It smells like you’re for the highest good of all you encounter.

You may say this is too far out there.  I challenge you to go with the flow and be destined for success.  Whether it’s in your day job, the lottery, or your blog you can have success in all of those things.  Just remember that things work on God’s time, so don’t expect it to happen on your time, but it will happen on God’s time.

Blogging about blogging is freeing.  You can say anything you want.  You can be a Youpreneur.  You can build your own personal brand.  You can get everyone you know on your email list and get so good at writing that they have to tell their friends about it, and then you will grow more.  It will snowball all the way down the hill.  Part of the reason, blogging, and life really, is so attractive.  Especially when your working towards something.  Taking baby steps.  Taking action.  It’s really really nice.

1,000 words is nothing in what you mean to me as a reader.  I’m going to have books for sale, one thing I’m working on is reading all the books I’m buying myself, but there’s going to be plenty of me to entertain, inspire, and delight you.  I encourage you to sign up for my email list, if you haven’t already.  Watch this video and put your email address in the box.  You’ll get only my best stuff sent right to your inbox.  I promise you’ll be happy you did.

Blogging About You

Blogging

Blogging is a great way to develop personally and professionally.

This blog is designed to help you blog.  Today’s post is to provide you inspiration to write your next (or first) post.  This blog post is entitled “Blogging About You” because I want to inspire you to know that you are interesting.  We all are like snowflakes that will only be remembered by how we fly and where we fall.  That’s why your life is so important to your blog.  Because your brand and your blog are about your story, it’s important you live a good life, so your blog will be of good quality.  Here are some examples.

Get Good At Saving Money

If you want to be a professional blogger then it’s going to help to be able to save money.  When you have money saved you have the ability to pay cash for ads.  You don’t even need to involve a credit card.  I just recently bought an ad and it cost me $40 and I got 40 clicks and 1 subscriber.  It’s better than getting no subscribers but I still think I can do better.  It’s all a matter of how much work I put into the blog, what I get out of it.  So as with saving money, I’m going to do my best to put all the hours I can into this blog, so I get maximum returns and can then save more money.

Be Good To Your Family

I’m not saying that you aren’t already good to your family.  I am saying being good to your family will help you with your blogging.  For example, Google will only show ads on family friendly sites, that means no crazy content.  When you’re good to your family it will show in your writing and in your videos, and your blog will be better off for it.  The million dollar post starts at home, just like my grandfather said charity starts at home.  Give to your family first, before homeless people and you’ll be living a life worth living.  When your giving to your family, even if it’s only your time, you’ll be putting yourself in a position of responsibility and I know that you’ll live up to the chore.  Not only will it be a chore but it will be a pleasure.  All you give comes back to you a hundred fold, so it’s in your best interest to be a giver.  Take responsibility and be good to your family, not that you already don’t.

Support The People You Work With

How you behave at your day job is important to your personality and your blog.  When you are in the business of giving it’s a no brainer to support your fellow co-workers.  This is a personal blog, and in the interest of being personal I’ll tell you that I’m better at dealing with people one on one than I am in groups of them.  I’m proud to say that I can hold my own in a group.  I’m also proud to say that I can really connect with people when we’re one on one.  So really, it’s not just about doing tasks involved with work with these other people, to help them with the goal, but it’s also caring about what they are doing outside of work, their personal lives that is also important.  Care about other people’s families, their interests, what moves them to action.  Give thanks to God for your lot.  Tend it, and take good care of it.  Personally, sometimes I have issues speaking up.  I find myself not knowing what to say.  I know sometimes I need to say something, but it’s one of those pleasure chores where it takes work to get it out.  It’s all about getting along in the world for me.  And that takes getting along with your coworkers.  So that it’s a good atmosphere.  Try thinking about supporting your coworkers as you punch in tomorrow and see how your day goes.  It may feel like gratitude.

Loving Your Blog

If your going to blog about you, you definitely need to love both you and your blog.  Of course you need to love yourself first and your blog second, seeing as your blog is coming from you, and without you loving yourself, there would be no blog to love.   It’s a beautiful interconnection between your blog and you.  It’s the best of you, all there for the whole world to see.  You may even want to go beyond free content and sell something!  I know it’s easy to love when your making money off it.  So why don’t we make it easy on ourselves and strive to make money with our efforts?  It’s a noble effort blogging for income, isn’t it?  What if our dreams came true and we DID make a $1,000 part time monthly income off it?  Wouldn’t we be deep in the depths of loving ourselves and our blogs?  I have read that the more love you put into something, the more money it’s going to pay you.  If you follow that rule then your going to get paid a lot when you blog the way we do.

Blogging About You Is Hard Work

I’m not going to lie to you.  I’m going to give you the honest truth.  Blogging for profit or otherwise is hard work.  It takes commitment, dedication, as close to daily action as you can take it, and vision.  You have to have the vision that you can change the world.  In order for you to change the world you’re going to have to be the best you can be, and that means a rock solid personal life.  Something you can blog about with pride and enthusiasm.  Shaping your personal life into something you can be proud of is going to take work.  It’s going to take you being your own boss.  And not just any boss, but a great boss.  Someone who motivates you to work, long hard hours with enthusiasm.  Be your own leader than can write posts that are worth more money to you.  That takes hard work.  But if you’ve made it this far in the post, I know you’re willing to do the hard work to make money.  Just know that it’s going to be hard and your not in for good times.  Your earnings are going to be pathetic when you first start.  That doesn’t mean you can’t build.  Just keep the faith in yourself and work towards a higher good.  The rewards are so worth the effort.

Final Words

Blogging about you is injecting yourself into your blog.  You’ll get back what you put out there.  Do me, you, and everyone else a favor and do a good job.  You’ll be happy you did.

Law Of Attraction Affirmations For Professional Bloggers

For Bloggers Who want affirmations to be professional bloggers.

Business man success in job.

I believe in the law of attraction, even though I have my difficulties in it.  There’s no need to get into the difficulties though.  The beauty about the law of attraction is that it will give you whatever you are thinking about.  In different ways.

I wanted to write down some affirmations for us so that we could become better professional bloggers.  So that we could be aided in our quest by the power of repetition with our thoughts.  Without getting into my personal story lets dive right into the affirmations.

Law of Attraction Affirmations For Professional Bloggers

  1. I am a professional blogger.
  2. I have a successful Convertkit affiliate business.
  3. I have a profitable ebook.
  4. I make money off Adsense,
  5. I use pictures in every post.
  6. I have a growing email list.
  7. My debts are all paid off.

Try experimenting with one or many of these affirmations throughout your day.  See the positive results in changing your mindset.  With work everyday, you’ll begin to see results and once you see those results you’ll be hooked.  It will be you working more to get better results.

Thanks for reading.  I don’t have much to say on the law of attraction because I believe action trumps visualization, but still I think affirmations are a valuable tool we can use to program our consciousness.  I hope you get great results using particularly the affirmation, ” I am a professional blogger”.

3 Feelings You Can Use To Blog

Feelings

Feelings

You may ask yourself, how do you blog?  How do you keep it going month after month, year after year?

Well I can tell you that I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now and there were some times where I would just puke onto the internet.  Those days are long since over and now I’m in the business of providing value.  Things to help bloggers blog.  That’s why I wanted to write this post on 3 feelings you can use to help you blog.  It’s a short list, but I think it highlights some of the best feelings you can have when your blogging.

Here goes.

1. Knowing That Your Going To Make Money

For me this is a big one.  The feeling that your going to make money off your blog motivates you to write.  Being in business for yourself is something to be proud of and us as professional bloggers can say we are.  We are our own bosses.  We make our own schedules.  One of the many beauties of blogging is that we are working from home.  So we are more available to lead our children instead of someone else leading them.  When every word you write is so valuable that it pays you money, you will put the work in to put bread on the table and beer in the fridge.  Knowing your going to make money will put your work ethic into overdrive and you’ll become driven.  If driven people are the ones who succeed, then be succeed.  When your your own boss, you’ve got to have the discipline to work on your business everyday.  You’ve got to be working 24/7 in everything you do.  You may ask who wants to work those hours, but when your talking about creative work that is fulfilling I think if your reading this, you and I both are willing to do the work.  Plus it’s fun work.  It doesn’t even really feel like work.  So if your blogging with the feeling that it’s going to lead to money, you’ll be motivated to treat your blog like a business, which in turn will lead you to the money.

2. Knowing Your Going To Build Relationships

I always have read that the money is “in the list”.  That’s why I am a Convertkit affiliate.  Because I believe in the service, and want to help other people with their blogging businesses.  I’m working on building a list of 1,000 people, because at 1,000 people I’m going to write and sell an ebook for my list.  Over 1,000 people the price for Convertkit goes up, so I figured I may as well be making something off my list at that point.  The point though is not to make money off the list, as much as you love the money.  The point is to build a relationship with your list where you are the one serving up valuable information.  You are a trusted resource they come to when they have questions about your topic.  Even when your list is small, it’s still an achievement to be able to send emails to them.  Heck, at first your list could come from people you just know out there in the world.  It doesn’t even have to be from the internet.  Get a few people on your list and their word of mouth might attract a few more people to your list.  Then you’d be growing in the real world and I can tell you from personal experience that when your growing it feels really really good.  On top of all that your building relationships with more people, via your list, and your maintaining that relationship by emailing them on a regular basis.  By the time you have 1,000 subscribers and are ready to sell an ebook, you’ll be well tempered with a clear mission and message.  Building your relationships with the people on your list is so rewarding in more ways than money can pay you.  It’s so worth it.

3. Knowing That Your Doing Good In The World

When you have a mission in life, a purpose, and it’s for the greater good, there again, is a real sense of fulfillment.  Doing good is the paramount reason you should have a blog, or in other words to be valuable to other people.  To help them change their lives for the better.  What more a reward could you want?  Other than doing it so well you reach the mountaintop of making a million dollars a year.  At that point you’d have your own podcast.  I guess I don’t have too much to say about doing good in the world other than it’s a high aspiration.  But really I have to write something on doing good in the ways of blogging because this post would just not be completed if I didn’t, so here: Blogging is one of the best ways to develop personally and professionally.  There I said it.  My message.  I really believe this could help the world.  I really believe the world would be a better place if everyone had a blog.  And there are A LOT of people without blogs.  I’m sure you could argue my view.  You could say that blogging does nothing for somebody, but that argument is oh so shot down in my mind that it doesn’t even stop me for more than a second.  Blogging is a personal development gold mine and people really can grow because of it,  I know I have.  I have the sneaking suspicion that other people grow as a result of their own blogs.  I’m going to Dad 2.0 in 2019 to see if I’m right.  I’m going to spread my mission and my message and do good in the world.  The world always could use another good guy.  Another hero.  As far as I’m concerned.  So I’m spreading my message to do good in the world, and I know that if you came up with your own message it would be as unique as a snowflake.  And people would remember you by the way you flew.  Know that your doing good in the world, and blog.
