Jonathan's Blogging Journey

I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

How to Become a Full-Time Blogger

Find Your 1000 True Fans and Become a Six-Figure Blogger.

The strategy of finding your first 1,000 true fans came from a 2008 blog post written by Kevin Kelly.  The overarching idea is that if you can find 1,000 true fans who will spend just $100 per year with you, then you would have a six-figure business. The formula works like this: 1,000 true fans X […]

Steve, welcome.

Wow, Joseph, thanks for posting the sale on AppSumo for StockUlimited for $49 for unlimited. I looked on my DollarPhoto Club account today and it looks like they are closing as of 4/15/16 so if you have any image credits there you may want to download your photos. Thanks for posting!

Comment by Joseph Lalonde on April 11, 2016 at 8:00am

Finding images to use on your blog can be hard, especially nice images. I saw on AppSumo, they're running a deal for lifetime access to StockUnlimited for $49.  Check it out if you need stock images to use on your site.

HI. I just joined this group after having been silent in this community for way too long. I have a great passion for faith filled entrepreneurs and have started a blog, thefaithfilledentrepreneur.com, to help those interested to serve and grow together. I look forward to being an active member of this group.

Question for the group.  I received an email from Dan regarding the Elite Blog Academy. I am wondering if anyone here has participated in the program and if so how did you feel about the program.  I am contemplating starting the program.  My daughter and I are trying to start a baking business.  I feel that a blog will help our business as well.  I have never done a blog and really need to be brought up to speed on what a blog is and how to use it to benefit my business.

Greg Davis did a well written member blog that you may find interesting around blogging. You can find the info HERE.

Also, if you missed the AWESOME interview with Jonathan Milligan, you can find it up on Periscope through 12pm CST 2/24/16. GREAT interview on how to take your product and repurpose it into 7 revenue streams. The interview can be found HERE.

Excellent discussion here. Also, Derrick if it is helpful, I published a book in 2015 on blogging that's been well-received thus far. It is called The 15 Success Traits of Pro Bloggers: A Proven Roadmap for Becomin.... Hope it helps!

Comment by Derrick Lopez on January 23, 2016 at 11:29am

Thanks Marcy it makes total sense and I will use this advise.  Holly I read platform and liked it, I also checked out dales page and will order his book.  Thank you

Comment by Holly Scherer on January 23, 2016 at 10:09am

Derrick, I think the book Platform by Michael Hyatt is an amazing resource. It's a great instruction manual for starting a blog. I also really like Dale Partridge's blog. His advice is more authentic than many of the other How to Blog bloggers. You'll figure out what works best for you once you start. Hope that helps. 

Comment by Marcy Travis on January 23, 2016 at 8:59am
@Derrick Lopez, I think doing a mix of writing and video works best. I try to keep my posts from 500-600 words (my reading preference). I would post once a week 500 word article and then do a combination of 3 short posts ( a 1 min video, a quote, or an informational article you link to written by someone else) for the rest of the week. So 4x a week, but short hits on a topic. Does that make sense?
Comment by Derrick Lopez on January 23, 2016 at 8:20am

Hello everyone,

I am planing to start my blog and I am looking for a resource to help me with the start.  I am wondering if I am better doing video or writing, as I am comfortable with either.  I also would like to know how to plan out my postings, how long they should be, and how often should I release.  Any advise would be great
