Make 2018 Your Best Year For Guaranteed Big Blogging Success

Guaranteed Big Blogging SuccessJust imagine if you could figure out how to make 2018 your best year for guaranteed Big Blogging Success.

Okay, that sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?

I mean, how would your life change if you started having exactly the kind of success you always hoped for with your blog?

Would this mean you could …

  • start living a more independent lifestyle?
  • work when you want?
  • take time to travel on a whim?
  • create more security for your family, partner or other loved ones?
  • finally get past the day-to-day drudgery of the “9 to 5” life?

What could it mean to you?

What is Big Blogging Success?

First, let’s think about what big blogging success means to you.

I mean, blogging success depends on what your personal, private goals and dreams are, right?

For one person… blogging success might be about making a life-changing income from blogging.

For someone else, it might mean being able to tuck your laptop under your arm and work from the local coffee shop, anytime you feel like it.

Somebody else might see blogging success as a way to get a lot more people to join their business or their team.

Whatever blogging success means to you, just think of achieving it exactly as you envision it… in a big, big way.

That’s what I’m talking about.

2018 could be that year for you.

How Can Your Blogging Success Be Guaranteed?

There’s one fool-proof way to guarantee your success in blogging… or whatever other online business you’re developing.

That one fool-proof way is this.

Step 1: Find out what works, and then do more of it.

Lots more of it.

Step 2: At the same time, figure out what has not been working… and stop doing it.

Don’t just change the way you’ve been doing it, or the amount that you’ve been doing it.

Just stop doing it all together.

If you commit to doing those two things in 2018… you will be able to enjoy exactly the Guaranteed Big Blogging Success you’ve been looking for.


So What “Works?”

Well okay, so obviously you have to figure out what works.

You have to know who your target audience is, and how you can help them solve their biggest problems.

It follows that you have to know what kind of offers to point them to.

These are the offers for products and services that, again, help them solve those same big problems.

In others words, you have to know what to promote to them.

All of this requires, of course, that you first learn what their problems are, and then, how to solve them.

These are the kinds of things that work.

What Doesn’t “Work?”

Now, here’s what won’t work.

Anything you’ve been doing for a while that is not bringing you exactly the results that you want.

And, naturally, that fail to bring you the quantity and consistency of successful results you need.

You would be right if you now ask…

“If you’re not getting the results you want from what you’re doing… then why would you keep doing it?”

Well, there is actually an answer to that.

You would probably do it because that’s what you’ve gotten accustomed to doing.

Maybe it’s even what you’ve gotten good at doing.

But if it’s not getting you the results that you need… then you have to learn how to cut all that out of your daily regimen.

Remove it from your business or blogging blueprint altogether.

And do it now.

Remember, you want 2018 to be your best year ever, and I want to help you achieve that goal.

The Magic Formula

So now that you know what works vs. what doesn’t work… you have the magic formula.

I’ve worked with a lot of people and helped them to do exactly these two things.

Double up on what’s working and eliminate what’s not working.

But how exactly, do you do that?

That’s the big question, of course.

Answer that and you’re on your way… fast.

That’s how you can make 2018 your best year for big blogging success.

Where Do You Begin?

Well, you have to start by knowing what you should be doing in order to start getting the results that you want.

You can, of course, do it the hard way (and expensive)… by trial and error.

Meanwhile, maybe you’ll get some helpful guidelines or hints by watching what others have been successful with.

To accelerate this process, though, and get a really fast start, right out of the gates in 2018… you would be very smart to start working with a blogging coach.

A good coach or mentor can give you immediate and individual guidance.

This will make things work better and faster.

And, a coach can usually see what you’re doing right or wrong, even when you can’t see it for yourself.

His/her input can cut right to the chase, putting you on the right track without costly and time-draining trial and error ramblings.

Reboot Your Business

So, if you haven’t been getting the kind of success that you want, then I’m going to suggest that you do these things to reboot your business.

Now what do I mean by reboot your business ?

Well, you see, it’s like when you’re working on your computer, and suddenly it starts getting really slow.

You know what I mean.

It’s moving along nicely and all of a sudden every time you click on something, you have to wait for the little spinning ball or something else before you can continue on.

In other words, you’re stuck.

For no clear reason, your computer just is not working at normal speed.

You’re not doing anything wrong.

But for some reason, you’re struggling to get your computer to respond to your keystrokes and clicks.

So what’s the best solution for overcoming this sluggishness?

Well, the very first thing that you should do is shut it down and reboot it, right?

And that happens because your computer starts getting confused with data or mixed commands that slow it down.

It’s not always clear why your computer gets confused, or why rebooting it solves the problem.

But it does.

Like magic 🙂

The fact is, almost every computer technician will tell you that if your computer is suddenly just not working right, then try rebooting it before you do anything else.

Well… this is the same thing I’m telling you about your business.

So you’ve been blogging right along, thinking that you’re doing all the right things, right?

And you probably have been.

But you’re just not getting the results that you want.

And you’re not getting the kinds of results you see other bloggers getting… and they don’t seem to be doing anything different.

In other words, you’re stuck.

Frustrating, eh?


Take a deep breath.

Let’s not take this frustration into the new year.

You can fix this.

First, though, before you do anything else… stop everything and reboot your business.

Just shut it down for a moment and then turn it back on.

When you do that, a lot of the stuff that was slowing you down and blocking you from success… can be made to disappear.

Just like magic 🙂

    Hi Donna,

    People need to hop on your coaching!

    They are investing in themselves, buying in to your year’s and year’s worth of blogging experience. Gotta hire a pro when you are struggling, and even successful bloggers work with pros to get clearer on their direction.

    As for ceasing to do what works, this is one of the things that separates the top bloggers from the rest. As I did an interview earlier today, I was asked about how I manage my time so effectively. I responded with: I basically do 4 things. So my blogging day revolves around doing those 4 things. Simple as pie. I create posts, I create authentic comments and promote my friends, and I engage folks on Twitter and Facebook. 4 things. I let go the many other things that didn’t work – because I did not resonate with those activities – many months and years ago.

    Most bloggers try to do 34 things, versus 4 or 5 things. They try to do a few things that work then fill their day with stuff that doesn’t work.Why in the heck would you do that? Baffles the modern day me, but the old me made some boneheaded errors. Lessons learned, and as my guest posting campaign shows, I really ran with what is working.

    Happy New Years to you, David and your entire family, Donna!

      Hi Ryan,

      I basically do the same 4 things as you. I did try other platforms years and months back and narrowed things down to what works, tossing out what doesn’t. I also do one more thing and that is production. I do that first and foremost in my day then go on to my blogging activities.

      He He you didn’t make “bonehead” errors, rather you learned from that old school of hard knocks which by the way is a great institution. I’m an alumni.

    Hi Donna,

    it is the time to reboot the blogging business. It is the job of a every blogger to find out what works and what not? Bloggers has to make some bold moves and also take some necessary steps that they are afraid of.

    The big issue what I have seen with many bloggers is that they do not understand the importance of investing. Investment and marketing are the keys to turn your blog into brand.

    Your advice is always helpful to grow blog in professional way.

    Hi Gaurav,

    I too find that the biggest problem people do have, especially when it comes to blogging is investing. Your blog is your “home base” so why not invest? I wouldn’t ask if I didn’t do it myself….and still do.

    Each time I create a product I do invest in one thing or another to make it work well. It’s not just me throwing out some petty stuff lol. I like to invest in a “coach” that keeps me on target and can give me insights. Also, most importantly can help me get it done right the first time around.

    Hi Donna,

    Great tips and it came at the right time. I actually sat down this past week to take a good look at what was actually helping me grow my blog. I’ve also decided to test out a few things as well.

    After all, you never know if something will work for your blog unless you test things out. You can’t always take other people’s opinions on what works and what doesn’t.

    After really digging into my Analytics and seeing what works. I realized that my YouTube channel doesn’t bring me a lot of traffic. I love creating videos but in the past year, I have only gotten 80 subscribers.

    I know that you said to cut out the task completely, but I really enjoy it. So instead of creating a new video every week. I am going to start doing one every 2 weeks.

    This way I can still create new videos but it does not take a lot of my time away from my blog and other things.

    That is the only thing that I am changing as I felt like everything else I am doing is helping me grow. I totally agree that it is important to sit down and determine what is actually helping you grow and what isn’t.

    That’s one of the reasons that I always check my Analytics at the end of the month. It helps me understand where I need to be focusing my time on my blog. After all, I am still not working on my blog full time.

    I still have to do work for my clients. So when I do sit down to work on my blog, I need to make sure that I am making the most of my time.

    Thanks for sharing these tips with us, I will be sure to pass it along.

    Have a great day 🙂

      Hi Susan,

      As for Youtube..I think you have a great idea to tone it down a bit. How about this: Do a Facebook Live video (either face to face or with keynote) Then post it up on Youtube? Kill two bird with one stone. You can also spread it out to Linked in and Twitter if you like. One task with so many tentacles for that far reach without going nuts lol.

      There was a time when I was going crazy with all the tasks to juggle. But then I started doing one task that can be shared all over the place (including my blog) and when the chips fell, I was able to analyze where the strong points were and the others not.

    Great suggestions Donna. It is important to sit back and see what isn’t working. No sense in doing the same old thing if it is not getting you anywhere. Thank you for these suggestions, I will make sure to share this.

    Hello Donna,

    A Happy New Year 🙂

    Its new year and we all bloggers are looking for a fantastic blogging year this year. Why shouldn’t be, at all every year
    we want to experiment something new with our blogs and try out some different goals which we can begin with a fresh day
    and more energetic start.

    Like wise, the past year there were talk about Live videos, getting active on Quora. I didn’t did these all things yet but
    I had my homeworks done for getting these things sum up in the 2018. I would love to ask pro bloggers for guest post, held
    up round up post and getting my social media sites done with live videos. Bit nervous but yeah now its high time and we need
    to act as cyborg.

    Thanks for the share.

    Have a Fantastic Year ahead.

    Hi Donna,

    I loved the last course I took from you. It really made me think and inspired me into some actions. What a great price too to learn so much. I love to reboot and am in the process right now. I still may sign up again as you offer a wealth of info.

    What worked 2 years ago really doesn’t work anymore. Things are changing so fast online – you have to really be on top of it daily to stay ahead. And then you take a breath and it changes again 🙂

    It’s amazing to think how much you have evolved over the short few years too – you are a video star now 🙂 You are a natural.

    I hope you had a great New Year’s Donna and that 2018 is wonderful for you and your family. I hope to get together again too in this year……more than once of course!

      Hi Lisa,

      It is so good to know that you were inspired by my last course. Thank you!

      Indeed, what worked two years ago doesn’t work today and things are always changing so quickly online.

      Oh I did have a great New Year and just coming down off the party these days lol.

    Hi Donna,

    Happy New Year!

    This is a great challenge you’re offering! And that’s a price that can’t be beat – it’s like Christmas all over again! 🙂

    I used the time offline to reflect on what didn’t work for me last year, how I can rebuild on that and put that plan into action. I’m definitely hoping for the best. 🙂

    Here’s wishing you a successful 2018, Donna!

    Hey Donna,
    That’s an awesome post, especially since I can relate to it a lot. Since the new year began, I stopped doing the one mistake that I’ve been doing in the past – working on multiple projects at once!

    I have now started scaling up the sites that were working, and forgot about the ones that weren’t. Once I reach a certain point with my websites, both readership and income-wise, I can outsource the work and focus on building new properties. It’s been only 4 days in 2018, but I have been more productive than I was in months.
