Why you blog

There are lots of reasons that people blog to begin with.

Some people are just passionate about something.

So they create a blog to get other people involved in their passion.

Other people might be bloggers already.

Maybe they’ve been blogging for a while, but they just haven’t had the kind of success yet, that they are looking for.

And then there are people who just want to blog because they want some kind of financial freedom.

They realize that by leveraging the power of the internet, blogging can be one of the fastest and easiest ways to achieve that freedom.

These are all common reasons for blogging, and they’re all valid.

Do you see yourself in one of those groups?

Why do you blog?

Or why would you like to?

My Story as a blogger

I first got involved in the internet to help my private clients find financial freedom.

Running a thriving intuitive consulting practice, I just kept hearing from people that they were scared of their financial future.

Even if they had a good job today, it could be gone tomorrow.

So I looked into online opportunities for them.

I soon decided that blogging is one of the best ways to establish that kind of security.

So I started blogging as a way to teach others how to do it.

And I set my mind to being a successful blogger.

You can, too.

Maybe you could create your own blogging success affirmation like I did here…

Coaching bloggers

When I started teaching and coaching bloggers, students would ask me how they can become successful in blogging.

The thing is, that it’s more than just setting up a blog.

I could help you do that pretty easily.

But it’s also learning how to make your blog successful.

The best way I can tell you to become a successful blogger is to start with a dream.

Dreaming of blogging success

Yes, you need to dream about your success as a blogger.

But you can’t be content with just a vague dream about unrealistic things.

Do you dream of being a blogger superstar in your field, or getting a new house on a tropical island, or having a new sports car in your driveway?

Those are not the kinds of dreams I’m talking about, here.

I’m talking about real dreams.

Are you dreaming of blogging success?

I’m going to show you the first step in achieving it.

Your blogging dream

The first step is to actually have a blogging dream.

That is, a dream of what “being a blogging success” means to you.

Nobody can define what a blogging success is except you.

There’s no standard for what blogging success is.

It really just depends on what you want for your life.

And it depends on what interests you have, and what your passion is.

If your blog is helping you to live your passion, then you have achieved a certain level of blogging success.

So the first thing you have to do is to define for yourself just what blogging success means to you.

Then you have to get very clear in your mind how blogging can change your life.

What will blogging success mean to you?

What things in your life will actually change?

My blogging dream

When I first thought of blogging, I asked myself “Who will my blogging impact?

“How it impact their lives?”

I was dreaming of blogging success in terms of helping my clients.

They were the people I wanted to impact.

And I wanted to do that by showing them that there was another alternative to just working a boring or dead-end job.

They could take control of their own lives and financial security.

So, for me, my blogging dream was to be able to help my private clients in my intuitive consulting practice.

In time, that dream expanded to include people who I met online, most bloggers, who needed to learn how to improve their blogging business.

Develop your dream

So you see, you start building blogging success by developing a dream.

Your dream.

Make it totally specific to you, your situation, your goals, and your abilities.

I wrote recently about taking some time off from blogging in order to reflect on your life as a blogger.

In that article, I mentioned how it is so important to take a vacation.

Not just to take time off from blogging, but to use that time for some reflection about what you’re doing and where you want to go with it.

Dreaming of blogging success is a perfect way to do that.

Reflect.

See yourself as the successful blogger that you dream of.

What kinds of things would you be doing?

What kind of message would you bring to the world through your blog?

What kind of help, enlightenment, inspiration, education or entertainment would you be giving people?

Break your dream down into tiny parts

How would your dreaming make you be a successful blogger?

I am talking about breaking down your dream into a vision.

Reflect on the things you would be doing on a daily basis.

Envision the kinds of activities you would be undertaking.

See what kind of audience you are attracting.

Who are those people?

What are their dreams?

And what are their problems?

How does your blog help them turn their dreams into reality, or solve their problems?

Idle dreaming

So what I’m talking about here is to create something that goes beyond just an idle dream about being a successful blogger.

I’m talking about constructing a very concrete, detailed dream of it.

A dream that you can actually have.

A conversation you can have with yourself.

Reprogramming your subconscious reality

Once you get a real clear view of yourself being a successful blogger… then you are actually beginning to train your subconscious to accept that reality.

You are beginning to show your subconscious the path to success.

And when you’re able to inform your subconscious in that way, then it will start to work with you on fulfilling that dream.

So the first step to being a successful blogger I would suggest to you, is to get very clear on what being a successful blogger even means to you.

Now, it’s time for you to voice your opinion on this topic.

Are you dreaming of blogging success?

Really dreaming in a constructive, deliberate manner?

Or are you just hoping something good will happen if you keep working hard?

Maybe you have developed your own little process for achieving your goals.

I would love to hear how you are dreaming of blogging success.

    Hi Donna!

    The first steps to achieving anything great in life are knowing what it is actually you’re looking for, defining the steps necessary to acquire it and truly believing that attaining or achieving such things are possible.

    A lot of people suffer in one or more of these areas… I’ve noticed it’s the same when it comes to thinking about building a dream life, developing a successful blog and so on.
    Of course, if you can’t set specific targets or have defined criteria for what you’re working towards, how do you know if you’re really making progress? What if your efforts are actually leading you towards the wrong thing?

    For example, I knew for a long time that I would require money to fund my dream lifestyle, so I wanted to become ‘rich’, with a huge income and an excess of money in the bank. It wasn’t until later on that what I actually wanted was to not have to worry about money, to be financially free. But what if my entire income source was dependent on a third-party platform? Or one large competitor could wipe me out just by entering my market? Or my industry was particularly prone to lawsuits? Maybe I could make good money for a while, but I’d still be constantly worried about losing it. Defining the specifics allowed me to make choices that better align with my long-term goals and values.

    It’s the same with blogging. It’s not enough to say you want ‘a lot of traffic’. This is a goal that will not help you. Specific targets on important metrics will show you what changes you need to make, and what actions you need to take to get there.

    As you point out, it’s not always about numbers either. There are intangible benefits of blogging, business and so on that are just as valuable. Things like impacting lives, making friends / connections, etc. When you know that this is valuable to you, you can adjust your actions to help lead you to all of your goals simultaneously.

    The problem is, so many people are wandering around in the dark, unsure of what they should be doing or if it’s actually helping them move towards the life that they want – hoping everything will be falling into place, but not working as effectively as they could be.
    Quite often, I wonder to an extent if I’m the same way.

    Thanks Donna!

    Hey Donna mam,

    Great post with great information. I really like the way you explained the post. I totally agree with you that it is really important down the goals and the dreams. Dreaming for a success is important but taking actions are also important. we can’t be able to do anything without taking any suitable actions. The right action at the right time will definitely helps to achieve the goal and transform the dream into reality.

    Really motivational post and thanks for sharing.

    Yes Donna. This is the beginning point. The starting point. Dream big dreams, to be open to ideas and to exit survival mode. Most bloggers try to survive, and never get past survival mode. You need that vision to get excited and to step outside of your comfort zone every day. Secret to my life and fun and freedom.

      Hi Lisa,

      It’s important to write down your dreams and your goals.

      You don’t have to necessarily list them out, but even a little story or a page in your diary or journal “describing” your dream.

      I find it more effective to just go with your intuitive feelings about it rather than try to analyze it.

      Dreaming is not the”how to” phase of your growth, it’s the “this is my passion” phase.

    Great Post like always, Donna

    Define your dream, feel as if it already happened, But most important, “TAKE ACTION”

    Even better is to have somebody who supports and guides these actions.

    The dream will become a reality 🙂

    Thank you
    Erika
